A semi-trailer's underride guard (also called a Mansfield bar or a Rear Underrun Protection System) is a crucial piece of safety equipment. Its purpose is simple: When a smaller vehicle crashes into the back of an 18-wheeler, the bar keeps it from traveling underneath the trailer—at least that's what should happen. Unfortunately the guards fail...
Late last week, when we heard the news that the family of Alex Cervantes filed a lawsuit against Fuzzy's Taco for their alleged role in the officer's death, we were all relieved. I thought I'd take a moment to discuss why we're relieved and how this lawsuit is a win for the community. Before getting...
Automobiles used to be literal metal death traps, so crash data scientists and automotive engineers naturally spent decades examining crash patterns and innovating safer vehicles. By necessity, auto manufacturers focused on the most deadly aspects of cars, so front seat safety was a higher priority over the relatively safer back seats. "Relatively" is the key...
Nothing is more devastating than the death of a loved one. When an untimely death is the result of the negligence of another person or entity, the surviving family members have the right to work with a Texas wrongful death attorney to file a lawsuit and hold the responsible party accountable.

This case involved a motorcyclist who was massively over-served by Big Mouth Burgers, a casual dining restaurant in Alice, TX, near Corpus Christi. After leaving the restaurant, he crashed his bike and sustained fatal injuries.
One such case involved a man who went out for a night of revelry at Burnhouse Bar in San Antonio, then crashed his car into another vehicle while driving back home.
The case we'll examine today involved a middle-aged man who died after his vehicle was struck by an intoxicated woman driving the wrong way down a highway in Fort Worth.
This case involves a 94-year-old woman visiting her local Wal-Mart. She tripped and fell on a rug at the store's entrance, which had been bumped up into a pretty obvious trip hazard, particularly for someone older and less limber. She later died from the injuries sustained in the fall.
One case our firm recently accepted vividly illustrates the tragic consequences that irresponsible establishments can unleash on ordinary people, as a family on its way to church lost its patriarch and several other members were badly injured.
