This is what you should do after a car accident

It doesn't matter how much time you spend on the road, you should always realize that you could be part of a motor vehicle accident at some point in the future. It only takes one mistake by another driver to cause a crash that changes your life forever.

Although you hope to avoid a car accident at all costs, it's good to know which steps you should take if you find yourself in this difficult spot. This knowledge will help you operate with a clear mind.

Calling an attorney to the scene of a commercial vehicle accident

Accidents that involve commercial trucks are innately capable of causing enormous damage, but they can also produce injury claims that are difficult to follow through. The actions that you or someone you love takes immediately following a truck accident may seriously alter the direction of a potential personal injury claim.

Assuming that you receive the medical care that you need, or already have plans to address injuries, it is often wise to call for an experienced attorney to come out to the site of a commercial truck accident. An experienced attorney offers many benefits and protections, which may prove valuable as the process of seeking fair compensation for your losses moves forward.

What If I am injured by government or city property?

When a person suffers an injury on someone else's property, this often leads to a premises liability lawsuit. But what if a person receives and injury on property belonging to a government entity, such as city property?

If you suffered an injury on government property in the state of Texas, and in San Antonio, you may sue the entity responsible. However, doing so may require following a few extra procedures in addition to the basic steps one might take in a premises liability suit between two private individuals.

Did you suffer amputation after taking Invokana?

When you live with type 2 diabetes, you depend heavily on your medical care providers to help you manage your condition and avoid dangerous complications. Unfortunately, for many type 2 sufferers, depending on the guidance of their medical care provider may place them at serious risk of amputation.

Over the last several years, the drug Invokana left many type 2 diabetes sufferers facing serious amputations. Despite the fact that the drug purports to prevent the need for amputations in diabetic patients, it did just the opposite for a disturbingly large portion of patients who took it.

Living with a mild traumatic brain injury

After a car accident, you might think that you got away free and clear of injury -- except for that blow to the head. At least you don't have a broken arm or leg, right? While it is always a good policy to practice gratitude, don't celebrate too much too soon.

If you suffered a blow to the head, you may have a brain injury, even if you don't feel the symptoms immediately. Brain injuries come in many varieties and can range from affecting you like a particularly heavy night of drinking to putting you in a coma or killing you outright.

You need enough sleep to prevent a car accident from drowsiness

Most people have done it. They know they're too tired to drive, but what they have to do is important, so they do so anyway. The problem with getting behind the wheel without enough sleep is that it's very similar to driving while intoxicated.

Driving without enough sleep makes you react more slowly and it results in you losing focus. When you're not focused, you put yourself and others at risk of being in an accident due to falling asleep. Why? Here are a few facts you should know about driving while you're tired.

A spinal cord injury: The types you could face

After a spinal cord injury, you may believe that you'll have little or no feeling at all in the affected parts of your body. The truth is that not all cases of spinal cord injuries are the same. There are two kinds of spinal cord injuries including complete and incomplete injuries.

The differences between these injury types are important to understand. Depending on which type of injury you have, you could have paralysis, pain or other symptoms. The outcome of your recovery may also be affected depending on the type of injury you've suffered.

High-cervical nerve injuries can alter your life forever

If you recently suffered a high-cervical nerve (HCN) injury, then you almost certainly already know that your life may never be the same. While there are many kinds of spinal cord injuries, those inflicted on the HCNs generally produce the most serious, long-lasting damage.

If you have not already done so, please get proper, complete medical treatment as soon as possible -- otherwise, your injuries may worsen and become completely irrecoverable. Once you receive professional medical care that fully addresses your injury, it is time to consult with an experienced attorney to identify any ways that your injury may qualify you to bring a personal injury suit against the responsible party.

6 things to know about tanker truck rollovers

This country depends on tanker trucks to move liquids in bulk from one place to another. Gasoline, milk and other substances are some of the liquids you might find in these trucks. While the importance of these vehicles is undeniable, they carry a risk of rolling over. These heavy trucks can crush cars near them, which can lead to significant injuries. Since the cause of the rollover might impact a claim for compensation, understanding some basic points about them can often help victims.

Know the common causes of truck accidents on the highway

Do you find yourself spending a lot of time on the highway? For example, maybe you use the interstates in and around San Antonio to commute to and from work or school.

The more time you spend on the highway the more commercial trucks you will come across. While you know the importance of sharing the road with these vehicles, it doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be able to avoid trouble at all times.
