Head-on collision raises potential survival claim issues

There always exists the potential for a car accident to turn fatal, especially in situations such as a head-on collision. This is precisely what happened in South Austin recently when two vehicles struck each other when a passenger car traveling northbound in an intersection apparently crossed into the southbound lane, where it ran into a sport utility vehicle.

Brain injuries pose medical as well as legal challenges

Injuries resulting from an accident that the fault of which is attributable to someone else, or from a reckless or even purposeful act, can result not only in financial losses but also in forced changes to the way that you and your loved ones live. Nowhere is this more true than in the case of a traumatic brain injury.

Amusement park injuries

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and that includes amusement and water parks. Many Texans love a good roller coaster or water slide to cool off in the summer. Yet, injuries can happen at these places. It is the responsibility of the park owners to make sure they do not. When they neglect this obligation, they may be held liable, especially if the accident results in wrongful death.

New Texas legislation may affect wrongful death claims

The Texas legislature has recently passed two new bills that can have an influence on the ability of non-state residents to file wrongful death claims in the state as well as the circumstances under which a defendant's net worth can be determined for purposes of assessing punitive damages.
