Texas car crash causes serious head injury to 1, kills another

A Texas driver of a pickup truck was recently hospitalized with serious head injuries. The injuries were suffered in a car crash in which his pickup was struck by a vehicle whose driver had lost control of it. According to a crash report, the collision occurred on State Highway 114 in Dallas County during the rush hour of a recent Thursday morning.

Dangerous product: Lip balm caused everything but smooth lips

Advertising is a powerful tool to get a new product on the market, and consumers are often tempted by the various tactics used by the marketing departments of manufacturers. A class action lawsuit was recently filed against EOS -- a lip balm manufacturer -- alleging the lip balm it claims to be healthy and healing is actually a dangerous product. The lawsuit says thousands of consumers nationwide, possibly also some in Texas, may have suffered adverse effects after using EOS lip balm.

Big rig driver dies in fatal accident on state Highway 6

The Texas Department of Public Safety reportedly arrested a woman whose driver's license was invalid after she allegedly caused the death of a big rig driver who was attending to mechanical problems on his truck. According to their report on this fatal accident, the 18-wheeler was parked on the shoulder of state Highway 6, not far from Navasota. The operator apparently exited the truck to investigate a mechanical problem.

When new products for which safety regulations have not been developed yet are introduced to the market, consumers may unknowingly be exposed to dangers that can cause potentially serious personal injuries. Usually, after a recall and some product liability lawsuits, design and manufacture modifications are made to resolve the safety issues. Hoverboards turned out to be extremely popular as gifts this past Christmas nationwide, including here in Texas, and being a brand new product, safety hazards were not identified before the boards were introduced to consumers.
