Slip and Fall Lawyers - Personal Injury Lawyers Abilene TexasSlip and fall injuries can happen at practically any place of employment. All it takes is one careless placement of something in the walkway or a spill in an inconspicuous area. Next thing you know, you have chronic back pain and a broken wrist or tailbone. I understand that is an extreme case of what can happen in this hypothetical situation. However, all too often, someone falls because of another person's negligent, careless or just outright lazy behavior. 
Seeking TreatmentPeople may fall and feel like it's not a big deal. Maybe just some initial pain sets in and then you feel fine afterward. The problem with back pain and injuries is that the true extent of the injury may not manifest for quite some time. It could be weeks or even years later. Let's say you fell on the job and you felt fine after a few hours. You should first report the injury to the appropriate people. The reason you want to do this is so th…

Nursing Home Abuse - Personal Injury Lawyers in Abilene TX
For most people, the decision to place a family member is not an easy one to make. People sometimes find themselves in a situation where their loved one simply needs more attention and care than can be given. People have to work and may not be able to give the required amount of care that is needed for their parents or grandparents. This tough decision usually comes with a certain concern regarding the well being and safety of their loved one. We have all seen some sort of story about how bad people can be treated in nursing homes. This concern makes the decision to leave them in the care of strangers even harder to make.

All too often, we hear the stories of a person being abused by a caregiver at a home or at the victim's home. The abuse can be physical, mental or sexual in nature. Physical abuse happ…

Emergency crews responded to a call about on Monday, July 24th. When the crews arrived, the leak had already been shut off, but several people had complained of being light headed or nauseous.

This just goes to show that no matter how innocent of safe the job you are doing is, the unexpected can always happen. There are some inherently dangerous jobs like police wor…

DWI Accident Injury Lawyer - Abilene Personal Injury Attorney

Image
DWI Accident Injury Lawyer - Abilene Personal Injury AttorneyDrunk Driving is a completely avoidable crime. Just a minor amount of preparing on the part of the offender could stop untold amounts of death and injury. When a person decides to drink and drive, they are deciding that they are more important than anyone else on the road and that the laws do not apply to them. This type of careless and negligent behavior is astoundingly selfish. 
Criminal NegligenceSince the act or driving drunk is considered a crime, when you hit and kill someone while drunk, the death will most likely be considered manslaughter. The aftermath for the surviving family members can be very hard, especially if the person who was killed provided most of the family's income. The remaining family members lives can be changed in the blink of an eye. All of this because someone didn't take a cab or call a friend.
Others can be Liable Sometimes other people can be held liable for the death involved in a DWI c…

Interestingly, this store was robbed before back in 2015. 
Violent Crimes Working the night shift at a convenience store may bring you into contact with some dangerous people. Sadly, almost any place that stays open 24 hours and has a significant amount of cash flow coming into the place may be a target for criminals. Because this is an ever present danger, most places try to set up preventative measures. Well lit parking lots and storefronts may help deter people from choosing to rob the place. Also, some places only keep so much much money in the …

Cities grow and some grow faster than others. This is typically a good thing for people who live in the city. The growth can mean new opportunities for jobs, entertainment, or commercial businesses. One drawback of a lot of ongoing construction, regardless of where it is happening, there is a significant chance that people can get hurt while on the job.
