Who is at Fault in a Dallas Truck Accident?

Getting involved in a car wreck or accident is never a situation that one wants to find themselves in but getting involved in an accident with a commercial truck is one of those worst-case scenarios that you never hope to see on the highway. Unfortunately, given the sheer number of commercial trucks on the road and the unavoidable element of human error, these sorts of accidents happen far too often.

There’s no two ways around it, sharing the road with these mammoth trucks is a dangerous proposition, and a standard passenger vehicle is no match. Statistics show that more than 70 percent of the injuries and fatalities occur to the occupants of other….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...

How Car Accidents May Trigger Heart Attacks

When motorists are involved in wrecks in Georgia they often suffer injuries like whiplash and sometimes more serious consequences such as broken bones and brain injuries. However, heart attacks resulting from car accidents are often overlooked. Research suggests anxiety linked to car wrecks may cause a condition called Takotsubo Syndrome. The condition is also known as stress-induced cardiomyopathy. Medical experts describe it as a temporary and sudden weakening of the heart muscles, triggered by emotional stress or constant anxiety. Car crash victims may take a long time to recover from physical and emotional injury. Researchers found that most people diagnosed with Takotsubo Syndrome experienced physical or emotional stressors before the onset of the condition. Takotsubo Syndrome can be triggered by factors other than a car wreck like a break-up or the loss of a job. For this reason, the condition is also known as ‘broken heart syndrome.’ The sudden emotional….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...

Combatting Fear of Abuse–A Sisyphean Task?

Over the past few weeks, at conferences with judges and policymakers in Varna (Bulgaria), Seoul, and Beijing, I've been confronted with a surprising degree of skepticism about personal insolvency systems and fear of opportunistic individuals abusing the ability to evade their debts (especially while hiding assets). I've pointed out the interesting progression identifiable in Europe in recent years of a marked relaxation of such fear of abuse, especially in places like France and most recently Slovakia, which have gone all the way to adopting a very US-like open-access system to immediate discharge. For the real skeptics–and they are numerous in Bulgaria and China, both of whom are considering adopting their first personal insolvency laws–these arguments seem to fall on more or less deaf ears. Detractors put me in a no-win situation by offering one of two rejoinders: (1) the incidence of discovered abuse is low in these systems because debtors are crafty or…..
