New Braunfels car crash lawyerMultiple recent car accidents in Texas have led to children being injured. In some of these accidents, investigators found some of the children in the vehicles were not properly secured in child safety seats, despite being young or small enough to need such a seat. A crash on the Loop 410 led to the deaths of a two small boys. Two other infants were severely injured in the accident. None of the children were in safety seats or wearing seat belts. The tragedy of these accidents is deepened when it is acknowledged that the proper use of child safety seats greatly reduces the likelihood of a child dying during an accident, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Despite the fact that car seat reduces the risk of an infant’s death by 71 percent or a toddler’s death by 54 percent, people still fail to use this safety equipment or secure their children into the seats properly.

Buying the Correct Safety Seat

Not every child safety seat is right for your child. Children grow and as they do, their seat must evolve with them. Newborns will need an infant car seat, which should only be rear-facing. The child will become too heavy or too tall for this seat. They will need the next size up, which can be forward facing and usually holds children up to 65 lbs. Many seats are convertible seats, which means they can shift and change shape to support your child through multiple stages. The last stage before children grow out of the need for a safety seat is a booster seat, which often holds children up to 80 lbs. It is important to note that you change the child’s safety seat based on their size and proper fit into the seat – not based on the child’s age.

The crash took place at the intersection of Sunshadow and Perrin Beitel Road. After it slammed into her car, the ambulance continued going forward until it smacked into a traffic light pole. Meanwhile, the force of the collision propelled the woman’s vehicle into the intersection and into the path of an SUV making a left turn. The SUV driver was unable to avoid a collision, and the vehicle spun several times before eventually coming to rest against a utility pole.

Aside from the woman, no other injuries were reported.

under the influence of drugs, New braunfels car accident attorney

The Bexar County Medical Examiner confirmed that a Nixon police officer was under the influence of a drug cocktail when he strayed across the double-yellow line and crashed head-on into an oncoming pickup truck. Now, the Nixon Police Department may be faced with a negligence lawsuit.

The wreck took place in April 2015, just west of Jourdanton on Highway 97. 51-year-old Officer Mike Villarreal, of San Antonio, was killed almost instantly. His passenger, an unnamed juvenile detainee, and the driver of the Ford F-150 were both seriously injured and airlifted to San Antonio University Hospital.

An autopsy revealed traces of methamphetamine and naproxen, a powerful over-the-counter painkiller, in his bloodstream. As no narcotics were recovered from the wreckage, investigators speculate that Officer Villarreal may have been under the influence for his entire shift.
