Swimming Pool Accidents

On a hot summer day in Texas, nothing beats a refreshing dip in your own swimming pool. Because of the summer heat and mild winters, many Texans can and do use their pools almost year round. However, the number of backyard swimming pools gives rise to significant dangers. Serious personal injuries and deaths.

Swimming Pool Safety

Tips on how can you protect people from drowning in your swimming pool.

Uninsured and Underinsured Coverage

Texas law requires drivers to have automobile liability insurance. Which is the insurance that pays for the other person’s expenses if you cause an accident. Minimum liability coverage in Texas is $30,000 per injured person, with up to a maximum of $60,000 for all injured persons in the same accident, and $25,000 for property damage. The shorthand for this coverage is 30/60/25.

Prescription Drug Safety

Although our doctors and our pharmacists make every effort to ensure that the drugs we are prescribed are safe, some basic information will help you to help them keep you safe.

Asthmatic Wins Disability Lawsuit

If you are disabled, the law may require your employer to make “reasonable accommodations” for your disability, accommodations that allow you to continue to do your job. A recent case from Texas demonstrates that the definition of a “disability” can be broader than you might think.

Scaffold Accidents and Injuries

Construction workers have one of the most dangerous occupations, with thousands of people killed on job sites every year and many more injured. Some of the most common construction accidents involve scaffolds or other types of lifts. These accidents can be very serious and usually result either from falls due to defective scaffolding or from objects plummeting from scaffolding that injure a worker below.
