Man who caused church bus crash alleged to have been intoxicated

It has been determined that the 20-year-old man, alleged to have been responsible for causing a March 29 church bus crash in Uvalde County, Texas, not only was on prescription drugs at the time of the accident, but also in possession of marijuana as well. The nationally-publicized collision between the man's pickup truck and the New Braunfels First Baptist Church minibus killed 13 of the 14 passengers aboard it.

Making a claim for damages sustained as a result of an accident

If you happen to have been injured in an auto or some other type of accident as a result of another individual's negligence, then most likely you're entitled to some type of compensation for the injuries you suffered. While having health insurance and accrued sick leave can help mitigate some of costs associated with your involvement in the accident, the inconvenience it causes for both you and your loved ones adds up. And, in the absence of health insurance, costs can add up even faster.

Making sense of the causes and rates of trucking accident deaths

According to recent trucking safety statistics released by the American Trucking Association (ATA), between the years of 1980 and 2015, fatal accidents involving large trucks decreased from 5,042 to 3,598 annually, a reduction of over 32 percent. That marks a decrease in the amount of type accidents from 4.65 to 1.29 fatal crashes per 100 million miles driven by truckers each year, a reduction of approximately 74 percent.

Proper restraint of your child thought to reduce car crash deaths

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every hour of every day across this country, some 150 children between the ages of 0 and 19 receive treatment in an emergency room for injuries they suffered in a car crash. In an even more alarming statistic, of all children between the age of 5 and 19, injuries suffered in car crashes rank highest among any other risk factors for young people's deaths.

How decisions regarding toy safety labels are made

When a child receives a new toy, it takes very little time for them to rip into its package and begin playing with it. While, as parents, we want to reward our children and for them to be excited to play with the toys we give them, we have to balance those sentiments with being cautious.
