For most Texas residents, the holidays are filled with joy and anticipation of making treasured memories with family and friends. However, it is also the time of year when more people are inclined to drink more alcoholic beverages. Driving after consuming too much alcohol has the potential to end in tragedy. A woman was recently killed in a fatal accident and police believe alcohol to have been a factor in the crash.
The aftermath of a fatal accident can be devastating for a victim's surviving family. For the loved ones of the person who was killed, it is a pain-filled parting with no goodbyes. For the person who caused the fatal accident, it may mean criminal charges, jail time and civil lawsuits. A local police department in Texas is investigating an accident that resulted in the deaths of a pregnant teenage girl and the baby she was carrying.
Texas drivers have to utilize caution when it comes to other drivers on the road. There is also a responsibility to pay attention to any pedestrians that may be walking in or near the roadway. A recent fatal accident took the life of a woman as she walking in El Paso.
People need to be able to trust their medical professionals. While not every diagnosis and course of treatment is exact, there should be a reasonable expectation by every patient that his or her doctors will dispense sound medical advice based on thorough examination and testing. When that does not happen, each patient has the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. A Texas law firm has been hired by two separate families for possible medical malpractice suits against a nurse practitioner.
