At the end of August, Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries began producing products again after a Listeria outbreak that allegedly contributed to the deaths of three people while at least ten others reported illness after consuming the company’s products.

Consider a scenario in which a loved one of yours is involved in a fatal accident with another driver. As the fact investigation proceeds, it becomes apparent that the driver of the other vehicle was driving someone else’s car, and worse had no business being behind the wheel of any car (for example, he had no driver’s license, or it turns out that he had a history of reckless driving behavior). To make matters even worse, not only does he have little money of his own from which to seek a legal judgment based on wrongful death, he had no insurance.
In any medical malpractice case, the plaintiff must prove that the doctor has not met the standard of care that any other physician in that situation would have used.

Truck accidents in and around San Antonio are more common than some may like to believe. Sometimes, these accidents are unavoidable, caused by bad road conditions or a driver quickly trying to dodge a stalled car. Other motorists on the road have a responsibility when driving around 18-wheelers, including staying out of blind spots and not following too closely. If your actions could have prevented a collision, you may be held liable for the truck accident, at least partially. Even so, you may be able to recover damages.
