According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one car accident occurred every sixty-one seconds across the state of Texas in 2015. This resulted in one person being injured every two minutes and eight seconds, and one person being killed every two hours and twenty-nine minutes. The unfortunate reality is that when you are driving your child to daycare, going to or from work, or meeting a friend for dinner, these tragedies cannot always be avoided by being a smart and careful driver.

Every day we share the roads with millions of other vehicles, including 18-wheelers, big rig trucks, semi-trucks, and other commercial vehicles.

Even worse, companies may employ drivers that lack the qualifications to drive or have a bad driving record.

Many people forget that just like cars, operating a boat takes skill and practice. When the boat hits the water, the driver is obligated to drive in a safe manner. Instead, people tend to underestimate the risks of operating a boat.
If your injuries were caused by the negligent or reckless acts of another, such as boating under the influence or an inexperienced driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Boating is very often associated with alcohol. People are celebrating the holidays, renting boats for parties, going on a fishing trip, all of which are closely associated with drinking. However, boating under the influence is just as dangerous as drinking and driving and can lead to serious injuries. Other common causes of boat accidents include speeding, reckless driving, poor maintenance, and defective manufacturing.
There are certain regulations and factors to consider when building your boat accident case that can make it a complicated process. Determinations must be made including whether the accident was caused by the driver or maybe the boat engine was defective. Further, these different factors will trigger different areas of law. That’s why it’s important to hire an experienced personal injury attorney, such as the Buckley Law Group. We have the experience and dedication to build a case that will obtain the compensation you deserve.
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are motorized vehicles that are commonly used for recreational purposes and some work-related activity. However, due to their speed and weight, ATVs have the potential to cause severe injuries. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that in 2014, there was an estimated 93,700 ATV-related injuries that required emergency treatment. 26% of these injuries involved children younger than 16 years old.
If you or a loved one was injured as a result of someone’s reckless or negligent driving, you may have a right to compensation. Most ATV accidents are caused by the ATV flipping or rolling. This can occur if the operator is not properly trained, such as a child. Accidents are also caused by having too many passengers. Many people do not realize that although there is room for two people on an ATV, they are not designed to carry passengers. Not only does a passenger have no control of the ATV, they cannot intuitively shift with the movement, creating the risk of being thrown off.
The designer or manufacturer may also be held liable for ATV injuries when the ATV is found to be defective. This occurs when the tires blow out, the steering locks up, or the suspension malfunctions.
Common ATV injuries include:
- Spinal injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Facial injuries
Figuring out who is responsible makes ATV accidents complicated. You may have a claim against the driver of the ATV as discussed above, or you may need to file against the ATV owner. Additionally, if the trail where the accident occurred created the danger, you may have a claim against the landowner. Call the Buckley Law Group today. We will provide a free consultation and show you the different options available.
