Defective products include sport, kitchen products

A few product recalls may affect consumers in Texas, particularly those into sports and those who have purchased kitchen products recently. Regarding sport products, kiteboard control systems and bicycles have been recalled. In addition, the kitchen-related defective products that are impacted by recent recalls include a couple of different types of mugs.

Kiteboard control systems from Cabrinha Kites have been recalled because the connection point between the landing line and lower front line may break, thus causing the user to lose control of his or her kite. This can pose a fall or injury hazard as a result. In addition, VanMoof reported that its M3 S and B series bikes are dangerous, in that the front tire may jam if an item becomes stuck between it and the mud guard/fender in the front. Thus, the company has agreed to replace the bolt in the front fender.

Car accidents sometimes due to driver carelessness

An oral surgeon who had been in practice for many years was killed in a recent SUV accident. The tragedy occurred at a Texas car dealership on a Monday at around 8:15 a.m. Many car accidents are attributed to driver negligence, and in these situations, the drivers may be held liable for monetary damages in civil court.

The doctor was 77 years old. According to police, he was at the local car dealership when an employee was moving a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot and had to back up through the lot. The employee was with another worker in the motor vehicle, as they were attempting to open the gates for the business day.

Texas texting: Is it illegal? For truckers, it is

You know that texting is not illegal while people drive in all of Texas, but federally, commercial drivers are restricted in what they can do behind the wheel. Texting while driving a commercial vehicle can lead to a driver losing his or her license and being disqualified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Texting includes reading or writing a text on a cellphone or other electronic device. It can also include using more than one button to end or begin a call. 

Defective products include food dehydrators

A recent recall of food dehydrators may affect consumers in the state of Texas. The product recall involves EZDRY dehydrators distributed by Greenfield World Trade. These defective products have the potential to overheat and thus pose burn and fire hazards.

The dehydrators being recalled are white, and each feature six trays. They were sold at Amazon.com online as well as at Kohl's stores throughout the United States between June of 2016 and February of 2017. The dehydrators cost anywhere from $40 to $50.

A continuing pursuit of justice following a tragic event

Negligent acts while driving can lead to serious injuries and death. In the split second it takes one vehicle to collide with another, lives change. Operating a car or truck requires high standards of safety. Speeding, reckless driving, or distractions caused by cell phones can result in dangerous and deadly collisions.

For 13 congregants of the First Baptist of New Braunfels coming home from a retreat, the accident they were involved in did not change their lives.

Working on an oil rig can be a very dangerous job

Many people seek out jobs working on oil rigs. These jobs can often offer great pay to those who work them. Sadly, that higher pay often comes with increased risk for job site injuries. Most who choose to work on oil rigs will complete their career without any serious injuries or accidents. For some, however, the job could claim their mobility, their ability to continue working or even their lives. When that happens, there are social safety nets, such as workers' compensation, in place. These systems exist to protect the injured workers and their loved ones from the financial fallout of an accident.

Many people in Texas work in the gas or energy fields, but few take on as many risks as those working on offshore oil rigs. These workers face a number of dangers, from explosions and falls to falling equipment. Workers employed on an oil rig may suffer injuries or even die while working. In these cases, benefits from workers' compensation may help. Sometimes, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate, if an employer violated safety regulations. If you or someone you love suffered injuries while working on an oil rig, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

Why you need an attorney after a commercial truck accident

When you're traveling in a motor vehicle, it only takes a few seconds for an accident to change your life. Many times, accidents happen thanks to someone's negligence, whether mirrors weren't checked or the driver was distracted by something like a cellphone.

When the person at fault for the crash is driving a commercial truck, the chances of severe injuries and major property damage increase.
