In October 2003, Billy Wayne Woods and his family packed into a luxury $181,000 motorhome for a fun getaway to Florida. Call it a textbook American vacation: their destination was Disney World, and with his wife, Shirley, his son and daughter-in law and two grandchildren in tow, the trip would surely be one to remember. But on the return home for the Alabama family, the vacation took an abrupt turn for disaster.

Who's Responsible For an Unsafe Product? | Legal Liability

Who's Responsible For an Unsafe Product? | Legal Liability | Texas Legal News | Scoop.it
What’s surprising to many is that liability for injuries caused by a defective product can stretch so far as to include the makers of the parts used in the product, assemblers and manufacturers, suppliers, and even retailers. Basically anyone involved in creating or selling the defective product can be held liable via the “chain of responsibility.”

How the Eggshell Skull Rule Applies to Personal Injury Cases

How the Eggshell Skull Rule Applies to Personal Injury Cases | Texas Legal News | Scoop.it
The eggshell skull rule says that you take your victim as you find them. Essentially, the frailty of the person who was injured cannot be used as a defense.
Jeff Rasansky's insight:
The eggshell skull rule—also called the thin skull rule—says that even in cases where the injuries were worse that one normally would have expected, the negligent party is still legally responsible for ALL consequences, including compensating the victim for any and all related medical bills.

How safe is ‘safe enough’ to put driverless cars on the nation’s roadways?

How safe is ‘safe enough’ to put driverless cars on the nation’s roadways? | Texas Legal News | Scoop.it
There’s a number that is all the buzz these days in the world of autonomous vehicles: 94 percent. That’s the percentage of car crashes caused by driver error. The implication: Once cars become driverless, there will be hardly any crashes at all.

Not so.

As fully autonomous cars become a reality, there will be collisions between them, and there will be collisions with conventional cars. Fewer than before? Yes, but there will be crashes nevertheless.

The speed with which driverless cars are accepted by the public may well be determined by this question: How safe is safe enough?

Birth Injury Lawsuit Compensation Calculators | Rasansky Law Firm

Birth Injury Lawsuit Compensation Calculators | Rasansky Law Firm | Texas Legal News | Scoop.it
We understand the desire to find out exactly how much your birth injury case may be worth should you choose to pursue a civil claim or lawsuit, but the hard truth is that—by nature—an online calculator simply cannot do such a thing. Any website that claims they can instantly give you an idea of what your case may be worth is lying, plain and simple.
Jeff Rasansky's insight:
If you’re looking for a birth injury compensation calculator to give you an idea of what your case may be worth, I have bad news: these tools are completely useless. No computer algorithm can account for the variables involved in such a case.

Texting & Driving / Hands-Free Laws in Texas - A Full Overview

Texting & Driving / Hands-Free Laws in Texas - A Full Overview | Texas Legal News | Scoop.it
While Texas just passed a state-wide ban on texting and driving, at least 45 cities within our state have banned hand-held phone use while driving.
Jeff Rasansky's insight:
It’s important to note that this new law only addresses “reading, writing, or sending electronic messages” via a “wireless communication device.” While the new law includes a provision to preempt local texting-and-driving ordinances, as written, it does not address stricter cell phone bans (i.e., hands-free laws) put in place by at least 45 Texas cities such as Austin, Denton, and San Antonio. Gov. Abbott said that when lawmakers meet in special session beginning July 18th, he wants them to pass broader legislation which would roll back any city ordinances that ban mobile phone use beyond texting while driving. According to Abbott, “We don’t need a patchwork of regulations” across the state.
