More often than not, car accidents are caused by at least one negligent driver, but in a few rare instances, the drivers of all involved vehicles could have been operating with complete care and still end up in a crash. How can that be? Some car accidents are the result of unsafe road conditions, which can result in serious injuries or even fatalities. When this occurs, people want to know: Who is at fault?

In cases that involve one negligent driver, it can be easy to determine liability, but when an unsafe road condition causes the accident, liability may be a little tougher to prove. Depending on the nature of the hazard, a manufacturer, architect, construction crew, or even the government may be held responsible. How do you determine which it is?

If you were involved in a car accident caused by an unsafe road condition, the best thing you can do for your car accident case is to hire an experienced Dallas car accident attorney. At Clark Law Group, our attorneys employ a number of investigative procedures to determine fault and come up with enough evidence to build a compelling case.

On the morning of November 4, 2017, a seemingly normal Sunday morning for the residents of Sutherland Springs, a rural town east of San Antonio, a lone gunman clad in all black opened fire in the First Baptist Church. The service began at 11 am, and not long after the final parishioner had taken his seat, the first shots were fired. 23 people were killed within a span of 20 minutes; two died outside of the church and one later died in the hospital. 20 more were wounded.

The gunman, Devin Kelly, used an AR-15, which are covered by the federal assault weapons ban of 1994. In 2004, the ban expired, and since then, the country has seen a surge in the purchase of the semiautomatic riflea. The weapon is dangerous in just about anyone's hands, but when placed of the hands of someone like Kelly with a known violent history, such a weapon can be deadly.

Lane change big rig accidents are not all that uncommon. Because of their immense trailer loads, big rigs have larger blind spots than most vehicles, so even if a driver takes extra precautions before changing lanes, he or she may accidentally sideswipe a vehicle when moving from one lane to the next. For that reason, most trailers come equipped with signs that read, 'If you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you.' This known fact also makes it difficult for accident victims to recover compensation in a lane change big rig accident. However, that does not mean that recovering compensation is impossible.

If you were involved in an accident that was caused by a big rig changing lanes and if you hope to obtain compensation for your injuries, you must be able to prove that the big rig driver was at fault and liable for your injuries and damages. Because Texas relies on the theory of proportionate responsibility, you do not have to show that the semi-driver was 100% liable; you must only prove that they share a majority of the responsibility-meaning at least 51% of it.

At Clark Law Group, our Dallas 18-wheeler accident attorneys are dedicated to helping accident victims obtain compensation for their damages and losses. If we believe that you have a case, we will conduct a thorough investigation and gather all the necessary evidence to make sure that you walk away with the compensation you deserve.

In an ideal world, every child would get to experience the joy of Christmas morning with both of his or her parents, but sadly, 'ideal' is not always what children get. According to the American Psychological Association, 90% of people marry before the age of 50, but 40 to 50% of those unions (at least, those that occur in the U.S.) end in divorce. As of November 17, 2016, 69% of children (those 18 or younger) lived with two parents; however, that percentage sharply decreased since 1960, when the percentage hovered at 88%. It is becoming the norm for children to grow up in a split household, but just because it is the norm, does that mean it is any easier? At Clark Law Groups, we know that it is not-especially during the holidays.

The Challenges Posed by the Holidays, and How You Can Overcome Them

Divorce forces couples to think about things they never would have given a second thought to before, one of which is, how do we split up the holidays? Who gets the child on Christmas Eve, and who gets to wake up with them on Christmas morning? Should they split the day, 50/50, or do every other year? Which parent gets to uphold which family traditions? How do the parents make sure that the child does not miss out on family time with either set of grandparents and cousins, aunts and uncles?

So, you want to know what becomes of your diamond ring in the event of a divorce? Some people will tell you that the engagement ring is a gift, and that women should be able to keep it in the divorce, or even if the engagement falls through entirely. Others will say that the ring is a gift with contingencies-namely that the woman should be able to keep it so long as the marriage is good; if the marriage falters or if the engagement falls through, the woman must give the ring back. The latter belief is more in line with what is deemed 'socially acceptable,' but what is socially acceptable is not always what people do. If you are in a situation in which you are not sure what to do with your engagement ring-give it back or keep it-our Dallas property division lawyers at Clark Law Group can share a few guiding principles to follow.

How to Determine the Ownership of the Ring
