A terrifying video of distracted teen drivers.
Video analysis finds that distraction was a factor in nearly 6 out of 10 moderate-to-severe teen crashes, which is four times as many as official estimates based on police reports. Some of that footage is included in this video.

One night in August 2011, a half dozen cows escaped their pasture and wandered onto a semi-rural stretch of road in Amarillo. The driver of an approaching pickup slamed on the brakes, but not quite soon enough to keep the truck from entering a terrifying barrel roll. Bobby Tunnell, the front-seat passenger and the driver's father, suffered gruesome injuries to his head, spine and torso. He was pulled from the truck shortly before it exploded.

Almost five years and $700,000 in medical bills later, Tunnell is in the midst of a legal fight with the cows' owner, which is taking place in Dallas County for various reasons but mainly because his attorney worries about the average Amarilloan's bias against trial lawyers. Tunnell claims the cows' owner, Richard K. Archer, negligently allowed his cattle to wander into the road and thus is liable for damages. Archer disagrees, partially because he says he took reasonable precautions (i.e. building and maintaining an electrified fence) to keep his cows on his property but mostly because he's a retired doctor, and Texas' 2003 tort reform law makes it damn near impossible to successfully sue doctors. Specifically, Archer argues that the case should be dismissed because Tunnell didn't present an expert report with the case within 120 days of filing the lawsuit, as is required in medical malpractice claims.
Texas' 2003 tort reform laws make it tough to sue doctors for malpractice, even if the case is over a traffic accident cause by the doctor's wandering cattle.

The presumption that court proceedings should be open to the public has been a feature of the American judiciary since around the time Englishmen in funny hats stepped off the Mayflower. It's not directly addressed in the U.S. Constitution but it is enshrined in the founding documents of many states, including Texas, whose open-courts provision can be found in Article 1, Section 13.

Interesting... "Even though the officer hit her from behind, an investigation found she was at fault because she made a sudden left turn into her driveway and failed to signal."
A Fort Worth mother wants the city to pay for damage to her van and medical bills after she collided with a police officer in an unmarked SUV.

In the early 1900s John O'Leary responded directly to the high number of traffic deaths by inventing a device known as the O'Leary Fender.

Built from a wire mesh rather than rigid metal, the O'Leary Fender would flex when it contacted a pedestrian, sparing them injury. Despite working in theory, the O'Leary Fender fared poorly in real-world use and was never widely adopted.

Scaffolding injuries are usually covered by workers’ compensation. However, employers in Texas are NOT required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. If the employer does not subscribe to Texas workers’ comp, the victim is allowed to file a normal personal injury claim. If the employer DOES have workers’ comp, you may be limited to workers’ compensation benefits only.
Have you been seriously hurt in a scaffolding fall on a construction site in the Dallas Fort Worth area? Call 1-800-ATTORNEY for a FREE consultation!

The problem of child abuse and neglect is a serious one, where in Texas alone, hundreds of child deaths related to abuse go unreported.
