Asleep at the wheel: the dangers of fatigued driving

"You drive lousy when you drive drowsy." Fatigued and drowsy driving is a serious problem in Texas, which sustains some of the highest drowsy driving deaths in the nation. A study conducted by sleepjunkie.org indicates that more than 1 in 5 of national driver fatigue-related fatalities in 2016 occurred in Texas. At Wyatt Law Firm, our personal injury and auto accident lawyers understand how serious this problem is.

Fire displaces five San Antonio apartment residents

How to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning from a Remote Starter

As winter is off to a not-so-cold start in South Texas, there is still time for the winter weather to sneak upon us. A winter-wonderland sounds great; however, there are many risks associated with such weather conditions. One of those dangerous risks is carbon monoxide poisoning. No one likes to get inside a brutally cold vehicle, especially those who have the ability to start their vehicles by using a remote control or an app like OnStar. With this ability comes great danger, especially to those who live in homes as they might forget to open their garages before starting their vehicle. When a car is started in a closed garage, the "silent killer" known as carbon monoxide will infiltrate the garage, leading to accidental poisoning when the driver or passenger enters a garage to get into a vehicle.

What Do You Need To Know About Mediation?

In Texas, court-ordered mediation in tort cases is an increasingly common occurrence.

Does A Contingent Fee Structure Help Your Personal Injury Case?

The fee arrangement for personal injury representation is distinct from other areas of law. The typical structure involves a contingency fee contract.

Chemical plant worker suffers catastrophic injuries in explosion

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has strict safety regulations for all the different types of industries, and while each has unique hazards to address, some general rules cover all. One of those is the need for companies to provide the necessary safety training -- especially to new employees. Too many catastrophic injuries are suffered within a few days or weeks of people starting new jobs. A recent chemical plant explosion in Texas underscores this concern.

After catastrophic injuries, Texas victims file suit

The unexpected loss of a loved one can wreak emotional and financial havoc on surviving family members. When that loss of life is because of another's negligence, it is sometimes necessary to hold the responsible party financially accountable. Several Texas families are pursuing suits against the U.S. Air Force after they lost family members or suffered catastrophic injuries in the Sunderland Springs First Baptist Church mass shootings last November.
