South Texas: Bus Rollover Claims 8 Lives, Many Others Injured

Another catastrophic bus rollover in South Texas has claimed the lives of 8 passengers and has injured another 44 passengers.  Authorities say the chartered bus belonging to OGA Charters was headed from San Juan, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, to Eagle Pass, Texas.  The crash happened on US 83 north of Laredo in Webb County, Texas.  Authorities say the bus rollover involved only one vehicle.

Personal Injury Lawyer's Take On: Nursing home abuse and neglect.

Elderly patients are being neglected and mistreated in nursing homes far more frequently than most people realize.  Even worse, when injury or death happens as a result of negligence by the nursing home, most relatives assume the cause was simply due to old age.

New Hours-of-Service Rules for Truckers Are Dangerous

For many years, the government has regulated the number of hours that truckers are allowed to drive, in an effort to keep tired truckers from being behind the wheel of large trucks. Recently, these rules were changed to let truckers drive up to 11 hours straight, without a rest, and up to a maximum of 80 hours per week.

Big Trucks Threaten High Way Safety

We all know the feeling: that uncomfortable tightening of the chest we get when we get when we look into our rearview mirror and see an 80,000 pound 18-wheeler truck barreling down on our back bumper. This feeling is not entirely irrational. According to federal statics, such trucks cause thousands of collisions each year. Given a truck' s size and weight, common sense tells us that a collision between a big rig and a car-or even an SUV-is likely to turn out badly for the car or SUV.

Insurance Company Hits

Insurance companies take in billions of dollars of premiums. But when the tables get turned and it' s time for an insurance company to pay you a settlement because you were injured in an auto acci- dent, the insurance company sings a different tune. An insurer will use any excuse to avoid paying a fair settlement, but some of the more common ones are listed below.

Be Alert for Medication Errors

Rarely a year passes without the announcement of some new won- der drug to treat another disease. While more and better drugs are usually considered a good thing, the increase in the number of drugs available and in the number of drugs the average person takes has led to an explosion in the number of errors made in prescriptions.
