Crayons, toy cars among recently recalled defective products

A couple of items designed for children to enjoy were recently recalled due to defects in them. The first recall of defective products, which may impact Texas consumers, involves crayons. The second one covers toy cars.

In the case of the first recall, Discount School Supply decided to recall around 2,200 Colorations extra-large crayons, as the red crayons might contain glass. As a result, these crayons may cut their users. The company has already received a couple of reports about red crayons containing glass, although there have been no reported injuries. The items were sold online at the company's website between June 2017 and October 2017.

Head-on car accidents often have fatal outcomes

Two men recently lost their lives in a tragic head-on motor vehicle crash in Texas. Now, their grieving family members are left wondering how these types of car accidents could so quickly take their loved ones from them. The head-on collision, which involved a pickup truck and a car, took place during the early morning hours along a rural highway.

The accident took place at 7 a.m. on a recent Tuesday. It occurred between County Road 380 and County Road 360 along U.S. Highway 79. According to police, a 33-year-old man was headed east along the highway in a compact car.

Understanding the many types of car accident injuries

There are many reasons why you never want to be involved in a car accident, including the fact that you could suffer a serious injury that alters your health for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try to avoid trouble on the road, another driver could make a mistake that involves you in a crash.

When you understand the many types of car accident injuries, it may be easier to know which steps to take immediately following an incident. Here are some of the more common injuries:

  • Head injuries. These can range from mild concussions to bleeding on the brain. Since the most serious head injuries can cause death, you can't wait to receive treatment. Even if you only bumped your head and think you'll be okay, you still need to receive medical treatment.
  • Neck and back injuries. There are minor neck and back injuries, as well as those that are much more serious. One common example of this type of injury is whiplash. This frequently occurs when your vehicle is struck from behind.
  • Chest injuries. In the event of a serious impact, a chest injury could result. From collapsed lungs to broken ribs, these injuries are nothing to take lightly.
  • Fractures. Almost every bone in your body is susceptible to breaking in an accident. This includes those of the arms, hands, feet and legs.
  • Burns and abrasions. Many people don't think about burns and abrasions occurring in car accidents, but these are extremely common -- as well as very dangerous.

Car accidents involving alleged drunk driving can be fatal

A young mother tragically lost her life following a recent fiery collision in Texas. A drunk driver reportedly caused the fatal wrong-way car crash. When car accidents happen due to the negligent or reckless driving of other motorists, this is grounds for litigation in the Lone Star State.

According to authorities, a 31-year-old man was driving an SUV east in Interstate 20's westbound lanes on a Sunday. All of a sudden, he allegedly sideswiped a car, which caused a massive chain-reaction collision. Police said he also hit another car head-on, causing it to strike a semitrailer.

Fatal car accidents may stem from driving while intoxicated

A high school graduate recently lost his life in a tragic Texas motor vehicle crash. The driver believed responsible now faces manslaughter and driving while intoxicated charges. These types of fatal car accidents are often the result of a driver's negligent or reckless behavior, in which case the driver may be held financially accountable for any injuries or deaths that occur as a result.

The accident occurred on a Friday at an intersection. A 59-year-old woman was reportedly speeding in a car that then left the roadway and struck cars going south. She allegedly ended up hitting and killing the 19-year-old graduate in the process.

Riding mowers, pacifiers among defective products

A couple of recent product recalls may impact consumers in Texas. Some of the defective products being recalled are riding mowers from the company Briggs & Stratton. The other products being recalled are baby pacifiers.

Briggs & Stratton has decided to recall around 18,000 Massey Ferguson, Snapper and Simplicity riding mowers throughout the United States since the machine's reverse-mow option switch has the potential to malfunction. Mowers could therefore unintentionally mow their lawns while operating the mowers in reverse. This may cause injuries to bystanders. So far, injuries have not been reported. However, customers who have purchased the mowers have been instructed to quit using them and schedule complementary repairs with the company.

Spinal injuries: The impact on your life now and in the future

When you fell, you heard a horrible snap and knew something was wrong. You weren't alone, so the people around you made sure you didn't move and called for emergency help immediately. The nearest hospital to you at the time was still at least several miles away, and there was a time delay in getting the help you needed.

You knew something was wrong when you noticed you couldn't feel much below your hips. You wanted to get up and check that you could walk, but you knew that could make things worse. After going to the hospital, you know that you have a serious spinal injury that may -- or may not -- heal.

Car accidents may occur due to failure to stop at stop sign

One teenager recently lost her life in a motor vehicle crash in Texas. Now, her surviving loved ones are left to question how such a fatal accident could have taken place. Two other people suffered injuries in the collision as well. These types of car accidents may occur due to the carelessness of another driver, in which case, the other driver may be held liable for the injuries or deaths resulting from the crash.

The recent Texas car accident took place at about 6:50 p.m. on a Saturday. According to authorities, a girl, 16, was driving along the U.S. 60 service road. A woman, 55, was driving south along FM-2373 at around the same time.

Fatal car accidents may stem from drunk driving

The lives of a woman and her infant were tragically cut short in a Texas motor vehicle collision. A driver who may have been intoxicated at the time reportedly caused the crash. When these types of car accidents happen, the surviving loved ones of the deceased have the right to seek justice.

The accident occurred on a recent Wednesday. At about 4 a.m., a sport utility vehicle reportedly rear-ended a car with the woman and baby inside. The woman, age 36, and the baby, 3 months old, both passed away in the collision. The husband of the woman said his wife was probably headed to get breakfast for the couple when the crash took place, as he works the night shift. The woman was on maternity leave at the time of the accident.

You should seek medical treatment after a car accident

Car accidents are almost always more destructive and violent than victims may realize in the moment. They may discover that they have injuries they do not notice until they feel pain hours or even days later. Unfortunately, even though an injury may not cause pain, it may still cause serious harm. Some initially undetectable internal injuries can result in long-term complications or even fatalities.

If you or someone you love experiences a car accident, it is always important to seek medical treatment as soon as you can. Even if you do not feel any indications of an injury, you may be in more danger than you realize. A medical professional can examine you for injuries you may not feel yet and may help you avoid serious harm and or needless suffering.
