Can Texas commercial property owners be held liable for spills?

A spill may be a nuisance if it is in your own kitchen, but a spill on a grocery store floor, ripped carpeting at a restaurant, or a broken step at a hotel could spell disaster if a patron at one of these places falls and injures him or herself. Commercial property owners can sometimes be held liable for the damages a patron suffers on their premises, but Texas residents should note that certain elements must be met to hold a commercial property owner liable in a premises liability lawsuit.

Wrong-way drunk driving a serious issue in Houston

Drunk driving in combination with wrong-way driving can lead to catastrophic events should a collision occur. Head-on car accidents can be very damaging, and oftentimes a person is lucky just to have survived such a crash. However, those who are fortunate enough to survive such wrecks could still experience significant injuries that could last a lifetime. Therefore, it is important for Texans to recognize their legal rights, as they may be able to take action to impose liability and recover compensation for damages that have been unfairly thrust upon them.

2016 sees many injuries, fatalities in Texas work zones

While road construction may always be going on in Texas, summer is when many people may notice an increase in orange cones and barrels as they make their commute to or from work, travel to one of the state's many theme parks and recreational areas, run their errands or simply go to visit friends and family. While a person may worry that having to slow down in a construction zone will make them late or at the very least make them aggravated, it is important to remember that the reduced speeds in construction zones are meant to keep both motorists and construction workers safe.
