Telltale Signs of a Distracted Driver and How to Avoid a Collision


Drivers who drive while distracted are more likely to cause accidents and injure themselves or other road users. Despite the obvious dangers posed by distracted driving, many drivers still engage in the vice while on the road. They text, make or receive calls, eat, drink, smoke, apply makeup, tune the radio, brush hair, adjust a seatbelt, search through a purse, pick something on the floor, or talk to someone in the backseat while behind the wheel.

Driving while distracted is dangerous and increases the likelihood of getting involved in a crash. If you or someone you know was involved in a car accident with a distracted driver, you can claim damages for personal injury and any losses suffered as a result of the accident.

One of the hardest things for many parents to do is letting their children go away to college.  Beyond the rather benign worries about grades, homesickness, and making new friends, there are so many real dangers to have nightmares about, such as drinking, drugs, and hazing. There's also sexual assault. And suicide.

Two heartbroken Texas parents are suing multiple defendants for the death of their 21-year-old daughter who was a junior at Southern Methodist University at the time of her suicide.

What Are Damages and Which Ones Are Available in Automobile Accidents?


Car accidents are traumatic events that can have life-changing impacts, so it’s natural for people who have been involved in collisions to seek to hold the responsible driver accountable.  Because American courts tend to use financial awards as a remedy for wrongs, seeking accountability usually involves tallying up the cost of all of the legal wrongs, or “damages,” the victim has suffered.  Damages are usually divided into two categories: economic and noneconomic damages.

When a Car Repair Goes Wrong


Q: Who is responsible for personal injuries sustained in an accident involving a car not repaired in accordance with the auto manufacturer’s repair manual?

"You hold the car's roof and I will apply the glue". A statement like that might conjure up an image of a parent and child playfully using glue while assembling a model car. Because no one would glue the roof onto a real car, right?
