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.

A local woman suffered a serious spinal cord injury last week after being hit by a truck while riding her bike on the access road to I-10 West.

cyclist accident injuryMonica Caban, a 39-year-old triathlete, was training for her second Ironman triathlon, when a truck hit her from behind. Caban’s training partner says the truck’s impact sent her at soaring at least 30 feet through the air before she landed. She was relieved Caban survived such a drastic accident.

The accident has sparked a strong reaction from the San Antonio’s close-knit cyclist community, even among those who have never met Caban. Many are calling for motorists to respect cyclist safety and rights, asking them to remember that cyclists are human beings rather than moving obstacles. The community has been providing meals for Caban while she recovers and has already raised $15,000 to help alleviate the burden of her medical costs.

If you have been hurt on your bicycle by a negligent driver, a personal injury lawyer can help you seek compensation for your injuries from the party responsible for your pain and suffering.

The effects of marijuana on drivers

Posted on May 18th, 2012 No Comments

Driving under the influence of marijuana has been linked to fatal consequences.

Several studies have been conducted on the subject, and a connection between marijuana use and fatal car accidents has been established. The major reason for this connection stems from the mental effects that marijuana has on an individual.

The effects of marijuana can include paranoia, inability to think clearly, and delayed reaction time. These side effects make it extremely difficult for a motor vehicle driver to stay focused while operating his or her car.

If you were injured by a person who was driving under the influence of marijuana, please contact the car accident lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers by calling (210) 999-9999 today.

San Antonio woman passes away due to injuries from car accident

Posted on May 10th, 2012 No Comments

In January, a car accident involving a San Antonio police officer left one woman with serious injuries. Five months later, the injured woman, a 41-year-old mother, succumbed to her injuries and passed away.

The accident occurred when the female police officer was attempting to render service in a case involving a stolen rig. She put on her flashing lights and signaled with her sirens, but she failed to yield to a car with right-of-way at the intersection of Loop 410 and Roosevelt Avenue. Her patrol unit struck the motor vehicle with full force, causing numerous injuries to the female driver of the damaged vehicle.

The family of the car accident victim is furious with the San Antonio police department. They believe that something more should have been done to reprimand the police officer, who has yet to be charged with any wrongdoing in the accident. A petition was started by the family, and they are looking for someone to take responsibility for the fatal crash.

Our thoughts are with this family as they grieve the loss of their loved one.
