A Waco man falls off a dock on Baylor's campus, sues for damages

A 43-year-old Waco resident filed a lawsuit against both Waco River Safari and Baylor University late last week in the 414th State District Court. He alleges that he suffered permanent injuries after falling into an on-campus river.

Be careful not to get injured this summer!

The summer is a time when many Waco families head out to their local swimming pools or park, take a day trip or visit other parts of the state. United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) data from 2016 showed that as many as two million Americans were hurt while participating in summer activities that year. Earlier data showed how they got hurt.

Can you sue if you're injured at a public pool in Waco?

Summer doesn't start for more than a month, but it's already hot enough here in Waco that many assume that it's already begun. With school going on break for the next few months, you've probably already scoped out local pools where you and your kids can go to cool down from this Texas heat. Have you thought about who to hold accountable if someone gets hurt though?

What are the top reasons workers become disabled?

A major workplace injury that leaves you with disabling injuries can change the course of your entire life. You may never work again. It can alter your day-to-day routine, your personal relationships, what hobbies you pursue, and much more. In short, that one fateful event on the job can have a lasting impact that you never fully overcome.

How is liability determined if I get hurt on another's property?

One of the reasons that Texas business owners take out liability insurance is in case a slip-and-fall, dog bite or some other type of injury or incident occurs on their premises. If they didn't have such coverage in place, a settlement awarded in a victim's favor could easily bankrupt them.

When can I sue for dog bite injuries suffered in Texas?

It is no secret that American citizens have an ongoing love affair with dogs and puppies of all kinds. Whether they own a mixed breed or a purebred, most people never expect their furry friends to cause other people injury. Unfortunately, dog bites can and do occur in the state, usually on another person's property. Under certain conditions, which will appear later in this post, it may be possible for bite victims to file a premises liability suit against the owner of a dangerous dog.

When can a handyman sue a property owner for injuries?

If you work as a handyman doing repairs on other people's homes in Texas, it's wise and responsible to carry workers' compensation insurance and general liability insurance to cover any medical treatment that you require after an on-the-job injury. However, if you don't have such insurance, and you get hurt while on someone else's property, it's possible that the homeowner will be liable to pay for your medical care.

What are the most common injuries teachers suffer at work?

For many years, teachers arrived at their jobs largely unconcerned about suffering a work-related injury. Considered one of the nation's safest industries for a long time, educator positions were highly desirable to those wanting to make a difference in the lives of children and young adults.
