What is the attractive nuisance doctrine?

As a parent in Waco, it is your job to worry about your kids. You understand that outside your doors are a number of things that can cause them harm. You hope that they will recognize any dangers that they encounter, yet because of their inexperience, they may not fully grasp the risks that certain elements pose. The expectation, then, is that those adults who have control over those elements will assist you in protecting your kids from them. Yet does that expectation (or more specifically, a failure to fulfill it) equate to liability

Why is swimming pool safety so important?

With warm weather finally here, people in Texas are keen to visit swimming pools for a bit of rest and relaxation. While swimming is definitely fun, it's also important to take all the proper safety steps to keep you and others secure. The Red Cross explains how you can do just that. 

What is a Glasgow Coma Score?

As you begin to cope with the news that your family member or friend has suffered a traumatic brain injury in Waco, one singular point may start to dominate your thoughts: what is next? Depending on the severity of the injury, they may require extensive care for the rest of their lives, or they may be able to make a complete recovery (albeit with the assistance of rehabilitation services). Understanding this will no doubt impact your decision of what action to take, particularly of your loved one's TBI came as the result of another's negligence. 

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.

The Doctrine of Negligent Entrustment

When a shooter walks into a crowded place and wounds anyone in sight, the pain does not end when the physical injuries have healed. Texans who have had this experience or know someone who has can vouch for the reality that the emotional ache can go on and on.

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.
