In our blog post last week, we answered some basic questions about truck accidents. These accidents can prove to be devastating to the other people who are involved in the accident. Injuries in truck accidents tend to be more serious than injuries in other types of motor vehicle accidents. Under Texas law, anyone who is injured in an accident caused by a trucker has the right to seek compensation.
If you are a Texas motorist who has been injured as a result of a collision with a semi-truck, there are two major differences between your potential lawsuit and that of one involving another car. Obviously, an accident between two automobiles is less likely to cause damage and injury as significant as an accident between a car and a tractor-trailer. The sheer size and weight of a fully loaded tractor-trailer is more likely to cause catastrophic injuries.
Birth injuries are events that no expectant parents think will happen to them. For some expectant parents, however, things go wrong in the delivery room, and the baby is hurt. These injuries can be serious and can sometimes lead to lifelong consequences for the baby. Our Texas readers might like to know more about the types of injuries that can occur during labor and birth.
Officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety have said that a woman died in an accident on Sept. 8 in which her car was hit by a truck. The crash happened on State Highway 114. In the wake of the accident, the road had to be closed to traffic for a few hours.
For some drivers, having to share the roadways with semi-trucks is a nerve wrecking experience. Being involved in an accident with one of these oversized monstrosities can cause serious injury or even death for the person in the passenger vehicle. Texas drivers might be interested to learn some basic facts about trucking accidents and how they might affect other drivers.
As discussed in a previous article on our law blog, cerebral palsy is a term used to refer to neurological disorders that occur in children as their brains are developing. Most of the time, cerebral palsy is caused by a brain injury the child suffers during fetal development. However, cerebral palsy can also occur as a result of a birth injury caused by doctor error or similar hospital negligence. A medical professional lacking proper training or experience can harm the child in a way that will bring about the onset of cerebral palsy.
