Losing a loved one is devastating, no matter what the circumstances. However, when someone dies due to another person's negligence, the loss seems all the more tragic. Drivers' negligent behavior may lead to fatal car accidents, such as one that recently occurred on a Texas highway.
The life of a 16-year-old student in a Texas high school will likely never be the same after a speeding van struck him about a month ago. This was a hit-and-run incident, and law enforcement recently arrested the driver who was allegedly responsible. The arrest report indicates that an 18-year-old student from another high school caused the crash. Unfortunately, the victim may be left coping with a traumatic brain injury.
Raising children is a challenging endeavor for every Texas parent, whether married or single. Several issues, such as education, religion and how to discipline, may create conflicts between partners. While these issues can prove to be stressful to anyone, the stress level could escalate quickly when divorce is involved. Many ex-couples find it important to discuss these hot-button issues in parenting plans.
When a Texas resident is injured in a public place, a common response is to find where to place blame for the injury. In many cases, this action is appropriate, and steps should be taken to hold parties accountable for possible negligence. This could be the property owner and/or a party in possession or control of the premises. A recent Harris County slip-and-fall accident resulted in injuries and a lawsuit has been filed.
