Young boy hit by car

Posted on October 30th, 2009 No Comments

A young boy was injured after he was hit by a car Friday. According to police reports, the boy was walking with his mother when a car first hit the mother and then struck the child.

While the mother did not suffer serious injuries, the young boy sustained serious injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.

When walking near busy intersections, children have an increased risk of being hit because many drivers have trouble seeing small children.

The increased risk of an injured person driving

Posted on October 21st, 2009 No Comments

While a driver’s license permits an individual to operate certain types of vehicles, that does not mean a person can drive under any circumstances.

For instance, if a person has been injured and is handicapped in some way that will hamper that person’s driving ability, that person may not be allowed to operate a vehicle.

This could occur if a person breaks his or her right leg and wears a cast that restricts that person’s ability to push down on the pedal. In such a case, the doctor will typically advice the person against driving until the cast is removed.

However, if the person does not heed the doctor’s warning, drives anyway, and is involved in a wreck, that person may be charged with negligence or an intentional tort. If convicted, the person will likely receive a more severe punishment.

If you or anyone you know has been involved in a car accident with someone who should not have been driving, contact the San Antonio car accident lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999.

The difficulty of proving proximate cause

Posted on October 15th, 2009 No Comments

Plaintiffs involved in personal injury cases must typically prove proximate cause. This legal concept applies to showing that the negligent behavior of a defendant is directly related to the plaintiff’s injury.

For instance, if the injury could have been caused by an outside factor, then the plaintiff likely did not prove proximate cause. One useful test for proximate cause is determining whether the injury would not have occurred if the other party were not present.

Proving proximate cause can be a difficult legal task. If you are considering filing a personal injury case, contact the San Antonio personal injury lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999.
