One Dead In Trucking Accident Denton, TX

By Williams & Brown LLP on October 31, 2017

Denton, TX

Two loose wheels from an 18-wheeler killed a man on a motorcycle.

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Brady Burger was driving his motorcycle southbound on I-35 at around 1:45 p.m. when a set of dual wheels from an 18-wheeler detached from a trailer. The wheels then jumped over the concrete barrier striking Brady on his motorcycle, fatally injuring him. The wheels also hit a Toyota Camry causing damage but no injury to the passengers.

The driver of the semi was interviewed and the wreck is currently under investigation.

Commentary

The loss of human life is tragic and often avoidable. A man has died, and there needs to be a thorough investigation to find out the cause of the initial mechanical malfunction. Working wheels, that are in good repair, and attached correctly, do not typically fall off an 18-wheeler. It is possible that better maintenance or better company policies could have prevented this accident from ever happening.

In cases like this I strongly advise the loved ones left behind hire a board certified personal injury attorney. Big trucking companies have lots of resources to protect themselves after an wreck, and you need an experienced attorney to level the playing field and fight for you.

Three Injured and One Dead in Trucking Accident Lubbock, TX

By Williams & Brown LLP on October 31, 2017

Lubbock, TX

On Tuesday, October 31th a multiple vehicle left three injured and one dead in Terry County.

A multiple-vehicle car crash happened around 4:30pm between a truck-tractor, semi-truck, and a minivan at the intersection of CR 200 and U.S. 385. The minivan driven by Martha Depoyster was traveling southbound on U.S. 385 when she reportedly drove across the center line into oncoming traffic. A semi moving northbound attempted to avoid the minivan but was hit broadside while swerving.

This multiple vehicle collision sent three children to the hospital, injures stable, and tragically killed Martha Depoyster. The cause of the initial crossover is unknown.

The wreck is under investigation.

Commentary

When someone loses their life in a car accident it is a tragedy. It can be easy to initially assign the blame of an accident like this on driver error because we don’t have all the facts, but the truth of the matter is there are so many other factors that could have led to an accident like this. Poor road conditions, mechanical failure, or other drivers can all be factors outside of the driver’s control that cause something like a crossover to occur.

These factors may not show up on an initial investigation. When someone loses their life or is seriously injured in a car wreck, it is important that a thorough investigation occurs by trained professionals.

Unfortunately, most people have no idea how to choose the right lawyer for a serious injury or wrongful death case.

Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms of Concussion

By Williams & Brown LLP on August 11, 2014

Waco LawyerConcussions 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: Read the rest »

Texas Upgrades Work Safety Hotline

By Williams & Brown LLP on July 28, 2014

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. Read the rest »

Kick Off the School Year with a Lesson in Safety

By Williams & Brown LLP on July 21, 2014

Child Injury LawyerThe 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.
