After a car accident, the question of whether you can recover compensation for your injuries turns on fault. To determine fault in legal terms, you must establish whether the other driver negligently caused the injuries that you sustained. Proving negligence can be quite complex and is not something you should attempt on your own.
An experienced lawyer can help identify the responsible parties after your car accident and prove that they were negligent. This may seem somewhat straightforward, but in Texas, it gets more complicated. Because of the complexity, it’s imperative that you talk to an experienced car accident lawyer.
Filing a car accident injury claim can be a frustrating and confusing process. Pleadings, motions, hearings, interrogatories, discovery, document requests, continuances, adjournments, negotiations, deadlines--the journey from your attorney’s office to the last gavel is an unfamiliar one to most people. Understandably, you have some serious questions
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s important that you don’t panic. Staying calm may be challenging if you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury, but the more thoroughly you think through the following steps the better your chances are of reaching a best case scenario.
The better prepared you are for your car accident injury claim, the more likely you are to receive maximum compensation as quickly as possible. Before meeting with your car accident injury attorney, it’s important to gather all information applicable to your claim in order for him or her to fully investigate your case.

We all prefer to believe that professionals like commercial drivers and train operators are exceptionally careful. For the most part, the people we trust to operate semi-trucks and diesel trains are careful and skilled at their jobs. However, tragic accidents occur on our streets – and train tracks – all too often.
Trains Strike Semi-Truck in Small Texas Town
In the quiet city of Angleton, just a forty-minute drive from Houston, morning commuters were confronted with a shocking scene. Just before 8 a.m. on May 20, an 18-wheeler was struck by a pair of locomotives. The trains dragged the damaged asphalt truck several hundred feet before it caught fire. Unbelievably, nobody was seriously injured or killed during this shocking incident. In fact, the driver of the truck was able to walk away from the accident without suffering permanent injury.
If you or someone you love has been overexposed to radiation and suffered a radiation burn, the attorneys at Williams Hart are here to help you. Radiation exposure comes from several different sources, including the sun, tanning beds, and radiation therapy for cancer treatment. About 85 percent of people undergoing radiation treatment for cancer experience some kind of skin reaction from radiation exposure.
Radiation burns can occur in a milder form that looks like a sunburn, but if severe, they can cause significant pain, pose a dangerous risk of infection, and may necessitate expensive and painful treatment methods with long recovery times. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical treatment and suffering if your radiation burn was caused by someone else’s negligence.
