Spinal Stenosis Caused by Car Accidents

Who is liable if I develop spinal stenosis after a car accident?

You may have never heard of the term “spinal stenosis,” but if you are injured in a car accident at some point in your life, you could be at risk of developing this painful condition. Spinal stenosis is a back condition caused by narrowing in your spine.  As the spaces in and around the spine narrow, it can put pressure on your nerves and spinal cord, leading to pain, numbness, or even paralysis.  

Spinal stenosis can have several causes.  At times, the condition is congenital or it may develop with age, but often it occurs due to trauma.

Understanding the Dram Shop Law and How it Can Affect Your Drunk Driving Case

Car crashes involving drunk drivers are usually associated with more damage than those that involve sober drivers. This is because alcohol impacts the central nervous system, slowing down a person’s reflexes. A drunk driver will not be able to brake quick enough or take action fast enough to avoid a car accident.

Many people involved in road accidents that involve a drunk driver suffer severe physical injuries, property damage and in the worst cases, death. For these persons and their families, the law allows them to claim against the drunk driver for damages caused by drunk driving and also from the bar or club that over served the drunk driver through Texas’ dram shop law.

Common Types of Bone Fractures in Automobile Accidents

Car crashes are devastating. The sheer force of two or more vehicles colliding with each other or with a stationary object can cause the body to absorb tremendous bone-shattering shock. The force will be even greater and the negative impact on the body more severe if the vehicles were moving at a high speed.

In some instances, the force of impact is enough to throw a person out of the vehicle if he is not wearing a seatbelt or send the vehicle rolling.

Understanding Herniated Disc Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are not something you want to take lightly. Herniated discs are one of the most common spinal injuries. They affect the discs between the vertebrae of the spinal cord.

How Do I Recover Monetary Compensation from a Drunk Driver in Texas?

I Was Injured While Lane Splitting on my Motorcycle - Can I Sue The Driver That Hit Me?

Texas is a land of wide-open spaces, and those of us who ride motorcycles here know about the wide-open spaces between lanes of cars on Texas highways.  When those lanes of cars aren’t moving, it can seem like a good idea to slide your bike into that gap and move through the traffic like a fish through water.  But even though lane splitting is not explicitly illegal in Texas, it’s not strictly legal, either.  As a result, if you’re injured while lane splitting you could end up in a legal pickle.
