My loved one died in a car accident. What are my legal options?

Losing a loved one is an incredibly difficult and painful process, especially if the loss was unexpected and the result of an accident or wrongful, negligent actions. If you lost a loved one, you are already dealing with tremendous grief, but you could also be juggling the financial repercussions that often follow a serious accident and sudden death.

From funeral costs to medical bills, a death in a Texas family could be a serious burden for months, even years in the future. In some cases, however, it may be possible to recover some of these losses through a wrongful death claim. If you believe that you may have a case, you would be wise to seek legal counsel regarding your potential legal options as soon as possible.

Pharmacy mistakes are a hard pill to swallow

You probably stood in line for quite a while to pick up your regular prescription. The pharmacists and technicians were likely bustling around, answering the phone, reassuring customers and ringing up orders. When you got home and opened your prescription bottle, perhaps the pills looked different than usual. Maybe they were a different size or color, or they may have had different markings. But you took them because you trusted your pharmacist.

What happened next happens too frequently. Maybe all at once or over the next few days something didn't feel right. If you ended up in the hospital by the time doctors figured out that the pharmacist had given you the wrong prescription, the damage may have been done.

Driving while distracted: a serious problem for Texans

If you believe that a distracted driver caused your accident, you have rights and legal options available to you. It is important for victims of this type of behavior to seek the protection of their rights and interests by working with an experienced personal injury attorney.

3 things to do after a car accident to get maximum compensation

It's a regular day and you are driving on familiar roads, thinking about what you're doing today. Before you know it, you are in a car accident, your car is damaged and you may be injured. Although the initial shock of the accident is enough to put anyone's mind in a blur, there are steps you can take from the moment the accident happens to ensure you get the compensation you deserve from the insurance company.

With any car accident caused by someone else's negligence or carelessness, you may be frustrated, angry and worried about how you will cope with the damages to your vehicle and your injuries. You may have questions about whether the other driver was adequately insured, and want to make sure your medical expenses will be covered. After all, healing from the accident should be your primary focus, so that you can be well again. Your emotions may be intense about the entire incident, and taking care of yourself will help you move on from the traumatic experience.

Texting While Driving a Serious Problem in Houston

Anyone would agree that driving while intoxicated is dangerous, unacceptable and often deadly -- not to mention illegal.

But you may not get the same response if you ask people about texting while driving. Some people still think it's acceptable to text while behind the wheel.
