A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Pursue Reckless Teen Drivers for Damages


In the halls of high schools all over Texas, posters are going up advertising the schools' annual homecoming football games and dances. There is high drama over who is taking whom to the big dance, who will be crowned homecoming king and queen, and where all the best after-parties will be held. The yearly ritual is perhaps second in importance only to prom for the millions of high school teens who will be taking part in the fall festivities.

The dangers of the exuberance of youth

All this frantic activity means that there will be many high-spirited — but very inexperienced — young drivers out on the highways late at night. Inevitably, some of them will be imbibing illegally-obtained alcoholic drinks, but even for those who remain sober, their excitement and effervescence can bubble over into dangerous driving situations.

Talk to a Car Accident Lawyer After a Wreck with a Texting Driver


Many of us have been guilty of it. We're heading down the highway at 70 mph, and our phone dings — a text. We know that we shouldn't, but what if it's work (or the kids, our significant other or the babysitter)? So we grab the phone, glance down at it quickly, then back up at the road. Maybe we shoot off a quick answer; even a short "yes," "no" or "LOL." If we are lucky, nothing terrible results.

Do You Need a Wrongful Death Attorney After Losing a Loved One to a Chemical Plant Accident?


Texas is home to an incredible number of refineries and chemical plants. They dot the landscape in clusters all over the state, providing the jobs the workers need to support their families. In some communities, they are literally almost in the backyards of the residents.

10 Things a Wrongful Death Attorney Wishes You Knew


If a family member has suffered as a result of personal injury or wrongful death, bringing a cause of action is not necessarily about personal gain.

Ask a Car Accident Lawyer: Are Senior Drivers More Likely to Cause a Collision?


Being able to drive gives senior citizens autonomy and allows them to remain active longer in their communities. Retaining a valid Texas driver's license lets elderly citizens get to and from medical appointments, the grocery store, worship services and other activities. Driving not only keeps them from burdening friends or family members in order to get where they need to go, but it is an integral part of their identity — a competent, licensed driver.

But are older drivers more of a Read more . . .

Have You or a Loved One Been Harmed by the Blood-Thinner Xarelto?


We trust our doctors with our very lives. They see us on some of the worst days that we will ever experience and in the worst possible conditions. We believe that they will take the best possible care of us using all the tools and technologies of modern medicine that are available to them.

So when our trusted physician writes us a prescription for a new drug on the market, we think that it will be fine to start taking it. We put our faith in the pharmaceutical wonders being touted by the drug makers.

A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Pursue Justice After a Collision with a Drunk Driver


Texans believe in working hard and playing hard. After work is over, many Texans pop a top or down a couple shots at the bar to celebrate the weekend. Or because it's Wednesday or we won the game. "Hook 'em horns!" You get the idea. Celebrating with friends over a few cold ones is a cherished Texas tradition, but driving drunk has no place in our state's hallowed history.

Crash Facts Involving Large Trucks — A Texas Truck Accident Lawyer is Your Ally


Statistics show that the majority of fatalities in 18-wheeler collisions occur to those driving or riding in passenger cars. The size and weight disparity between the two is simply too great for the outcome to be favorable for the smaller vehicle. A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 30 times as much as a 4-door sedan.

Injured by a big rig? Contact an East Texas Truck Accident Lawyer


If you have ever traveled on a Texas highway with 80,000 pounds of 18-wheeler bearing down on your bumper, you know that it can be quite intimidating to share the road with the big rig behemoths. Because commercial trucks need extra time to both speed up and slow down, it is imperative that they allow enough room between them and any passenger cars. When factoring in the blind spots inherent in the design of all 18-wheelers, motorists can find themselves at considerable risk from negligent truck drivers. 

The life you save may be your own

There are certain driving behaviors motorists can adopt to help give them an edge on highway safety. Taking these tips and suggestions into consideration when behind the wheel may help you avoid a deadly accident and injuries.

9 Big Things a Lawyer Does (and Doesn't Do) When Handling a Pharmaceutical Case


 

A wrongful death attorney has the unenviable job of pursuing justice for an individual who suffered serious harm or death from taking a prescription medication. Drug manufacturers frequently release medications to the public that have serious side effects, and they aren't always as safe as manufacturers claim they are. When a death occurs as a result of taking a prescription medication, the stakes are much higher for the survivors. Following are nine reasons why retaining an attorney for pharmaceutical cases that resulted in death can be beneficial to those who have suffered.
