Five chief causes of trucking accidents

Trucking accidents can result in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries for the passenger vehicle occupants. The disproportion between the weight of the average big rig (up to 80,000 lbs) and the average passenger vehicle (4,000 lbs) has a lot to do with it. Drivers in Texas should know that there are five common causes of truck accidents, the first being driver error.

10-year-old boy falls 20 feet in theme park zip line accident

Zip line accidents are not uncommon in Texas and other states. On Sept. 1, an incident at a theme park in Lakeland, Florida, resulted in a 10-year-old boy suffering serious injuries. The boy was riding on a zip line along a set track, but when the track ended, the boy went flying and then fell 20 feet to the concrete ground underneath.

Minor errors by truck drivers can have severe consequences

Do you often share the Texas highways in and around San Antonio with semis, tractor-trailers, tankers and 18-wheelers? Then you will likely know how it feels to sit in your passenger vehicle, sandwiched between two big rigs towering over you. It is also no secret that occupants of passenger vehicles typically suffer severe injuries or worse in truck vs. car accidents.

Dealing with work-related depression

It is widely recognized that a wide range of injuries and conditions might force you to take time away from your job in San Antonio; depression, however, may not be one of them. Many may not view depression as being a debilitating condition, and instead believe it to be something that you need to work your way through. Yet many have come to us here at the Gamez Law Firm not only wondering if they are justified to take work leave to deal with their depression, but also if the costs associated with treating their depression can be covered by workers’ compensation benefits.
