Dram Shop Liability Lawsuit Filed in San Antonio after Fatal Car Accident

Posted on February 22nd, 2013 No Comments

La Vikina Bar & Grill now faces a dram shop liability lawsuit claiming that the bar served alcohol to an “already-intoxicated” individual, who then got behind the wheel of a vehicle, later killing Jorge Badillo, Jr. last October.

Badillo Jr. was killed in a car accident on October 26 by a female driver who had been served at La Vikina. The driver was traveling the incorrect direction on Highway 151, when she struck Badillo Jr.’s vehicle, killing him.

While the driver is being implicated for her role in the accident, the lawsuit is targeting the restaurant as well, stating that they should also be held responsible.

Gas Lines Rupture After Car Accident

Posted on February 20th, 2013 No Comments

In San Antonio only two weeks ago, a woman’s car ruptured gas lines after being lodged between another car and the lines.

The driver was traveling near the New Braunfels area and was hit by an 18-wheeler traveling the opposite direction. The 18-wheeler driver ran a red light and struck the woman driving her car, and the action caused the woman’s car to veer off of the road and toward a local home, where it was stuck.

As a result of the crash, the gas lines of the home ruptured and CPS Energy had to report to the home to turn off the gas lines and remedy the problem.

After the accident, the passenger of the smaller vehicle was taken to Baptist Medical Center with non-life-threatening wounds.

The truck driver first fled the scene, but returned later. Police arrested the truck driver when he came back to the scene of the accident.

West Side Crash Kills Man

Posted on February 15th, 2013 No Comments

A driver was instantly killed after a car rear ended his vehicle on West Side Highway, Sunday officials said.

The unidentified driver was reportedly moving slowly when a car driven by a uniformed off-duty deputy of Bexar County Sheriff’s Office slammed into the back of his car, San Antonio police reported. Officer Michael Moore said the off-duty deputy was surprised when the slow moving vehicle apparently swerved in front of his car. The two vehicles then slammed to a concrete barrier, pinned the other driver inside his car as a result of the impact. The pinned driver was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation by military personnel who happened to be also on the scene, but could not be revived. Two other passengers of the rear ended car were rushed to the hospital for minor injuries.

The off-duty deputy himself was reportedly uninjured and is unlikely to face criminal charges.

Losing a loved one, particularly in an unexpected accident, is difficult. Our attorneys at the Chris Mayo Law Firm send their thoughts and condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of the driver killed in this accident.

Car Crashes into Local Store

Posted on February 7th, 2013 No Comments

On Thursday, January 24, Fox29 news reported that an elderly woman crashed her vehicle into a local liquor store around 4:30pm. Her name was not released at the time of the report.

Police say that the elderly woman has arthritis, and that this condition might have led to the loss of control over her vehicle, causing her to crash into the Thrifty Liquor, located at Babcock and Huebner in northwest San Antonio last week.

Police and reporters received statements from store manager, John Gonzales, who was the only person inside the store at the time of the crash. He said that the crash “sounded just like a bomb going off.”

No one was injured in the accident, but damages are estimated to be around $9,000. Workers, according to reports, spent several hours making sure that all of the glass and broken alcohol bottles were completely cleaned up.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident or other incident caused by another party, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your resulting losses. To learn more, contact the experienced legal team at the Chris Mayo Law Firm today by calling (210) 999-9999.

Teenager in Central Texas Passes Away after Accident

Posted on February 5th, 2013 No Comments

Police report that Christopher Schultz, a 16-year-old high school student who suffered a car accident in Central Texas last month, has died from his injuries.

Friends and family of Schultz recently gathered for a candlelit vigil in honor of Schultz, and his family has announced that it plans to have Schultz’s organs donated to those in need.

Police reported that Schultz was the only person who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

Earlier in January, police reported that Schultz had been driving his vehicle at a “high rate” of speed, and lost control over it, veering into oncoming traffic and hitting a Dodge truck. No one in the truck suffered severe injuries, but Schultz was taken to a local hospital to treat a serious head injury. He passed away once he was transported to Texas Children’s Hospital.

Our thoughts are with Christopher Schultz’s family and friends at this difficult time.
