Burn injury to three Texas family members after package explodes

All three family members present sustained a serious burn injury in the explosion. Investigators do not know if the family had received threats prior to this incident.

Driver in car crash was using multiple drugs before accident

When a Texas car accident results in injuries, the victims have the ability to pursue justice in the form of a personal injury lawsuit against the driver responsible for the crash. A successful personal injury suit, however, requires proof of negligence on the part of the driver. This is easier to prove in some car crash cases than in others. However, there are some incidents that are so clear cut that success in court seems a given.

Is wrongful death possible if the deceased was committing a crime?

When a Texas rancher found a man molesting his daughter, he did something that many parents can easily imagine themselves doing: he pulled the man off of his daughter and beat him to death. This case has received wide media coverage, and has captivated viewers across the nation. The incident raises a number of questions about the use of deadly force, and about the right of citizens to take the law into their own hands when confronted with a crime in progress. The case also invites debate over whether a wrongful death suit is possible when someone is killed while in the act of committing a crime.

Widow claims wrongful death after husband dies in work accident

A 67-year-old man was working for a cement and construction company when he fell several feet and hit his head. He lost consciousness, but instead of calling 911, the man's boss allegedly ordered a drug test on the injured worker while he lay on the floor dying. The call to 911 was not made for several hours, even though the man worked for the Texas company for some 38 years and was set to retire within two weeks. The injured employee eventually died after being transported to a local hospital. Now the decedent's widow is suing the company for the wrongful death of her husband.

Family settles in Texas boy's brain injury case, DWI-related

Applebee's has settled a civil lawsuit brought by a Texas family whose son suffered a brain injury in a car accident. The crash was reportedly caused by a drunk driver who had been a patron of an Applebee's in Mansfield, Texas. The lawsuit alleged -- with receipts backing up the claim -- that the establishment had served the patron over 20 drinks in less than a two-hour time span. At the time of the accident that caused the boy's brain injury, the driver's blood-alcohol content was shown to be more than triple the legal limit of .08 percent.

Texas police officer suffers broken neck, leg in car crash

Texans should know that all motorists, including police officers, have a duty to exercise due caution on the road. Sometimes special circumstances arise, such as a high-speed police pursuit, and the risk of injury is increased exponentially for all parties involved. But no matter what a driver's job is, he or she may be liable for damages of both person and property if negligence is shown to be the cause of a car accident.
