No one ever wants to need an attorney. But, if you or someone in your family has been seriously injured or killed because of the carelessness or negligence of another person or company, choosing the right attorney may be the most important decision that you ever make for yourself and your family.
Unfortunately, most people have no idea how to choose the right lawyer for a serious injury or wrongful death case. These types of cases are very significant because the outcome of the case can affect the medical care that the injured person receives and the financial future of your family for the rest of their lives.
Choosing the Right Attorney – one that is experienced and highly successful in obtaining results for his or her clients – is one of the most critical factors in determining the outcome of a serious injury or wrongful death case. Most lawyers know this, but most non-lawyers do not.
While most broken bone injuries will heal normally, there are some accident victims who suffer more complex and significant broken bone injuries. A compound break (a broken bone that sticks out of the skin) or a break in a weight-bearing joint like the hip can lead to serious complications. These types of broken bones can leave people in debilitating pain that can severely impact their quality of life.
Common Causes of Texas Broken Bone Injuries
Williams & Brown LLP have helped many people who’ve suffered broken bones pursue personal injury claims. Here are the most common causes of broken bones our clients have faced over the years:
Accidental drowning is the number one cause of death for children under age 5, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Near-drowning accidents cause tens of thousands of injuries each year, some of which result in permanent brain or organ damage.
Summertime in Texas means that families will be flocking to the state’s lakes, rivers, and the Gulf Coast, or staying home to enjoy family swimming pools and hot tubs. You can help yourself and those you love stay safe while enjoying summer water fun by keeping in mind the biggest summertime drowning risks and ways to prevent them:
Concussions send over 173,000 children to the emergency room every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While children under age 10 are more likely to suffer a head injury from playing or bicycling, the top cause of head injuries in older kids and teens is organized sporting events. As Texas school kids head back to their classrooms, practice fields, and courts this year, parents and teachers need to stay alert for the signs of concussion in students.
Experienced Texas brain injury lawyers encourage grownups to review the CDC’s checklist of concussion signs and symptoms. Some of the more common signs include:
Over twenty years ago, the Texas Legislature passed a law creating a 24-hour work safety hotline. Now, the hotline isn’t just open round the clock – it’s also manned by live staffers, according to a recent article in The Texas Tribune.
While many experienced Texas work injury lawyers have known about the hotline, fewer have tried calling it, especially after the work day ends. This is because a glitch in the voicemail system was turning away callers who tried to connect to the hotline after business hours.
The new school year is just around the corner, and experienced Texas pedestrian accident attorneys are encouraging families to help their kids stay safe while traveling to and from school. Each new year represents new accomplishments and new freedoms for children. Whether your kids have been walking themselves to school for many years or are just starting to travel on their own, don’t forget to remind them of a few essential safety tips.
Here are some back to school pedestrian safety tips for kids and families, courtesy of the National Safety Council:
- Know your route. Before school starts, walk or bicycle the route to and from school with your children. Be “safety sleuths” during the trip: practice identifying places where accidents might occur and safe ways to help prevent them. If your kids wait at a bus stop, tell them to always wait away from the road until the bus comes to a complete stop.
