Has a heroin addiction led to criminal charges?

Having a serious drug-related problem could happen to anyone. One minute your life may have felt right on track, and the next minute you may have found yourself at the beck and call of an illegal substance. You may not even feel fully aware of how you ended up in the situation, but trying a drug even once could easily lead to this type of scenario.

Could you become a victim of these common types of accidents?

You follow all of the traffic laws, at least most of the time, remain vigilant and avoid distractions while you drive. You can only hope that the other drivers around you are doing the same, but you know better. The problem is that you can't anticipate what another driver will do.

A U visa may help Texas victims of violent crimes stay in the US

If you live here in Texas without legal permission, you may relate to the many struggles and challenges other people in similar situations experience. Even seemingly uneventful activities, such as driving to and from work each day, may cause you to feel nervous or worried that authorities will detain you because of your legal status. Some immigrants say they hesitate to report certain issues, even if someone has stolen their property or committed another crime against them because they fear they will be at risk for deportation if they do so.

Key causal factors in many Texas motor vehicle collisions

Traveling Texas highways or other roadways in the nation can be extremely stressful. Long gone are the days when families took leisurely Sunday drives at low speeds, just for fun to enjoy the open road and time together. With as many accidents as there are nowadays, you might find yourself thinking it's safer to stay home than to get behind the wheel and risk a collision. It's highly unlikely that you could continue to function in your everyday life without ever traveling by car.

If the wedding bells you rang don't sit well with the government

When you were planning your wedding, you may have been both excited and nervous at the same time. Given the fact that you were planning to leave your country of origin and come to Texas, you may have had a thousand questions about your soon-to-be new life in the United States. Although you were likely thankful that marring a U.S. citizen would also be a valid means of obtaining a green card, you might have anticipated that there would be challenges in the process.

When the status of your status puts you at risk in a police stop

Even if you've been living and working in Texas for decades without appropriate immigrant documentation, you probably never get entirely used to living as a non-immigrant in the United States. You go to work. You pay your taxes. You do your best to raise your children to respect the laws of this nation and to be proud of their heritage and the contributions they can make in their Texas community. You probably have many neighbors who relate to your situation.

My BAC was under .08! Why was I arrested?

Like many other Texans, you may be under the impression that you can only be arrested for drunk driving if your blood alcohol concentration is .08 or higher. That isn't always the case. Your BAC does bolster other evidence of impairment observed and obtained by law enforcement officials, but it is not the only indicator of impairment.

Amusement park injuries are not so amusing

With summer here, you and your family may be considering your options for a vacation. Along with trips to the beach, camping and family reunions, you and your family may be looking forward to a visit to an amusement park. You may have memories of such trips when you were a child, or maybe it's an annual tradition in your own family.

Using a store-bought product should not cause personal injury

It boggles the mind to think of how many millions of different products there are for sale in today's marketplace in Texas and across the nation. Perhaps you rarely even leave the house to do your shopping because you can find just about anything you need online. If you do venture out to in-person stores, you'll likely find multiple choices for whatever type of item you need or want to buy. You have the right as a consumer to expect the products you buy and use are reasonably safe.
