FortWorth

Fort Worth is a city in North Central Texas. In the late 19th century, it became an important trading post for cowboys at the end of the Chisholm Trail. Today, it's a modern city, with international art institutions like the Kimbell Art Museum. The Fort Worth Stockyards are home to rodeos, and the National Cowgirl Museum, and Hall of Fame honors pioneers.

At the Fort Worth Stockyards, it seems like a rodeo is always going on. Everyone loves to gather to watch the cowboys and all the different types of animals. But sometimes animals are uncontrollable and they cause injuries to people. Around the stockyards, these injuries might be caused by horses. Fractures, soft tissue damage, and head injuries are the most common types of injuries inflicted by horses. The most frequent cause of death and serious injury for mounted and dismounted horse activities is from a head injury. Head injuries are associated with approximately 60% of all equestrian deaths and 18% of equestrian injuries. Aside from death, brain injury survivors may suffer personality changes, intellectual and memory impairment, or epilepsy. Lifetime costs for acute head injury can be over $3 million. The cost per day for the treatment of acute head injury is $25,000. If you have an animal injury case, you want an attorney who has dealt with this kind of a case before.

Sometimes in big cities like Fort Worth, it seems like people are always in a hurry. People are zipping through traffic, always changing lanes, and not paying any attention to the other drivers around them. The numbers back this up!

There were 26,530 urban accidents caused by a person ignoring a stop light or stop sign. 22,221 urban crashes were caused by a person following too closely. But by far the worst causes of accidents was driver inattention, which caused 75,309 urban accidents, and failure to control speed, which caused 105,486 urban-area crashes.
