Falls the leading cause of fatal injury among older adults

As an older American living in Texas, you face a higher risk of falling than those younger than you, meaning you are more susceptible to environmental hazards and other obstructions that younger people may be able to easily avoid. At Hunt & Tuegel, PLLC, we understand just how often falls are a factor in senior hospital visits, injuries and fatalities, and we have helped many older Americans who suffered because of someone else’s actions or negligence pursue appropriate recourse.

US mass shootings occurring on a nearly daily basis

While the overall crime rate in U.S. cities has been trending down over the last couple of decades, the United States far outstrips other developed nations in the number of deaths resulting from gun violence. Mass shootings, such as those seen over a recent two-day span in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, have become a nearly daily occurrence, according to the Gun Violence Archive. Since 2013, there has been a total of 1,855 mass shootings in the U.S., with 108 incidents in Texas alone. Over the past three years, according to research, there has been nearly one mass shooting incident per day in the United States. In 2016, a leap year, there were more U.S. mass shootings, 382, than there were days in the year. As of September 20th, there have been 263 days in 2018 and 262 mass shootings in this year alone.

How do I show the impact of a personal injury?

It is fairly easy to document physical injuries sustained as a result of a Texas auto accident. Thanks to x-rays, photographs and the expert witness testimony of a physician, there are many ways to make a solid case that you have been injured due to the negligence of the other party. However, proving the amount of pain and suffering that resulted from an automobile accident can be more difficult.

A community wave of healing after the Gatesville explosion

The explosion at Coryell Memorial Hospital on June 26 sent a shockwave that rattled all of Gatesville. Fifteen employees of Lochridge-Priest out of Waco were badly injured and Michael Bruggman of Rogers was killed. They and their families have been forever changed by the wave of destruction. Our hearts go out to them and we all hope for a full recovery.
