SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

What to Do After a Texas Car Accident Caused By Damaged Roads
While most car accidents result from driver negligence, a large number of car accidents occur because of poor road conditions, whether due to improper maintenance, incomplete construction, faulty design, or poor signage. Depending on the specific roadway, federal, state, and local government authorities may be responsible for the road on which you drive. These government agencies are responsible for building and maintaining the roads for travelers' safety. If they fail to do so and the poor road conditions lead to an accident that causes injuries, the victim can file a personal injury claim to seek recovery for their damages.
Truck Accidents in America: Major Causes and Damages
When it comes to auto accidents in the United States, trucks are responsible for a massive number of road accident injuries. According to statistics from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 5,000 people die as a result of motor vehicle accidents involving trucks every year.
