Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) November 26 , 2012 – Not once, but twice, a DUI driver hit two vehicles, and killed a 24-year-old woman. “When you read about the facts of this case, you will be stunned by the behavior of the allegedly drunken driver, or perhaps you will not, if you understand that drinking and driving do ‘not’ mix,” remarked Austin personal injury attorney Bobby Lee, of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas. “A hit-and-run driver slammed into a car on the highway and fled the scene, only to collide head-on with another vehicle a short time […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) November 23, 2012 – This gruesome case demonstrates that bicycles and large trucks do not mix. “This is a horrific case. A seven-ton U.S. Postal Service truck crushed a woman on a bicycle and then left the scene of the accident,” said Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. “As the facts unfolded, it turned out the man driving the truck had no idea he had hit anyone.” The victim in this case was a former State Supreme Court special referee, and she was out biking with her husband one […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) November 19 , 2012 – Do not drink and drive is not an empty request. Drinking and driving kills, as it did in this case. “This case is heartbreaking for everyone, more so for the family of the 26-year-old man that died, leaving behind two young children. The man died when the car he was riding in, spun out of control due to clipping a concrete median, left the road, and flipped into a creek,” recounted Austin personal injury attorney Bobby Lee, of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas. The accident happened about 1:15 […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) November 12 , 2012 – Texting while driving is not the only thing teens mimic. They closely watch what their parents do versus what they say. “It’s not much of a stretch of the imagination to get that teens parrot what their parents do while driving. If the parent texts, talks on a cellphone, or other mobile device, fiddles with the GPS, or tries to work a laptop and whatever other technology they have in the car, the teen will do the same thing. Kids mimic what they ‘see’ rather than listen to what they […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) November 1, 2012 – The man in this case had multiple DUIs and was still driving. Enforcement is an issue. “The drunken driver in this case seems to have had no business driving. He reportedly had a blood alcohol content of .064. He hit a 2-year-old with his car, and left the scene of the accident. The girl made it to hospital alive, but in critical condition,” outlined Austin personal injury attorney Bobby Lee, of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas. The man also did not have any insurance, which reportedly came as no […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 30, 2012 – The idea behind a transvaginal mesh implant is a good one. However, it does not appear to be working. “Women with medical conditions that necessitate a transvaginal mesh implant, such as urinary stress incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, were happy to learn about the latest surgical procedure that could help them. The implants turned out to be a nightmare of pain and anxiety, often resulting in even further surgeries,” explained Austin personal injury attorney Bobby Lee, of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas. In many instances, but not all, pregnancy […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 25, 2012 – Some cases just defy all logic. This is one of those cases. “It’s a rare thing to hear that a police officer does not know how to perform CPR. Almost unbelievable in fact, but that is what happened in this case. An 11-year-old girl died from an asthma attack, presumably because a police officer refused to help her as he tried to hand a ticket to her mother,” recounted Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. “The mother had been driving the wrong way down a […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 23, 2012 – Who would have thought that we would see the day when technology has to fight to suppress technology, because people are not smart enough not to text while driving? “How many people do you know who have sent or received a text while behind the wheel of their vehicle? Likely the response is ‘lots.’ The chances are high that just about everyone has done it, is doing it and will do it, no matter what the law says about it. People never think the laws apply to them, because they drive […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 18, 2012 – Many big rig accidents are the result of the trucker driving while impaired. The fatality statistics are frightening. “Many states have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to truckers hauling large loads on America’s highways. However, whether there is a policy in place or not, it seems there are more and more truckers who ignore it, and hit the road while drunk,” remarked Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. “Picking up the pieces from a wreck with a semi-truck is devastating, as many of […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 15, 2012 – A motorcycle is thrilling, but bikers live on borrowed time. In this case, two bikers lost their lives in a devastating wreck with a pickup truck. “One of the hardest accident scenes to see is a motorcycle that has been broadsided. The damage it does is graphic, horrific and hits you with a visceral punch in the abdomen. There is debris from one end of the road to the other and in some instances, body parts. You have to say a mental prayer for those that lost their lives, as they […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 12, 2012 – Hotly disputed wrongful death case results in victory for the plaintiff’s estate. “This case involved a police officer going faster than the posted limit, ultimately resulting in a wreck that killed a 21-year-old man. His father filed a wrongful death lawsuit, seeking actual and punitive damages for the death of his son,” indicated Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. The young man was killed August 7, 2011 as he pulled out in front of a police cruiser. The officer stated he tried to avoid the […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 11, 2012 – Drinking and driving a car is illegal. Drinking and driving a motorcycle is as well. “This case really gets under your skin, because the man who killed his motorcycle passenger should have known better. He was a former Sheriff’s deputy, with 15 years of service, and was out hooting it up on his ride, while DUI, lost control, went into a slide and dumped his passenger. She sustained severe head and neck trauma, and died the next day,” explained Bobby Lee, an Austin personal injury attorney of Lee, Gober and Reyna […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 4, 2012 – A 14-year-old girl was repeatedly sexually assaulted by her 48-year-old teacher. “This was one of those cases where you shake your head and wonder what on earth possesses people,” said Bobby Lee, an Austin personal injury attorney of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas. “It involves one of the worst breaches of trust anyone could perpetuate – the abuse of a young teen by a teacher.” The young girl committed suicide just three weeks before her 17th birthday.The man was ultimately charged with three counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) September 17, 2012 – It’s time someone made recommendations to reduce traumatic brain injuries in sports. “It almost goes without saying that the world of sports has lagged behind in doing something about reducing the number of traumatic brain injuries that occur every year. Traumatic brain injuries, or concussions, are life-altering, brain-altering experiences, often affecting balance, judgment and memory,” explained Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. “Finally, a series of suggestions were approved by Ivy League presidents in July 2012.” Consider the case of a local college rugby player […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 29, 2012 – This bizarre case includes a coven of witches and a warlock trying to hex disbelievers. The bottom line is the witch was driving under the influence of alcohol. “I’ve been involved in, heard about and read a lot of strange cases over the years I have practiced personal injury law,” said Bobby Lee, an Austin personal injury attorney of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Texas. “But this one really took the cake: witches, warlocks, a stripper, Wiccan members, drinking and death by impalement. This story was almost too bizarre to believe, […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 24, 2012 – An ounce of prevention can prevent a serious accident. This case proves it. “If the police had not been out checking tractor trailers for various infractions of the law, the rig in this story could have seriously injured or killed someone. There are times when an ounce of prevention may avert a disaster. It did in this instance,” added Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. The big rig trucking down the highway was pulled over into a traffic safety check point. As it turned out, […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 21, 2012 – Not every accident is what it appears to be. Big rigs are notorious for causing fatal accidents, but in some respects, that is automatically assuming a trucker is always at fault in any accident. That is not always the case, and it certainly was not in this collision. “This particular accident happened in the early morning hours, on Texas 36,” said Bobby Lee, an Austin personal injury attorney of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas. “On one side of the highway was an Exxon Mobile tanker. On the other side […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 14, 2012 – Texan arrested in fatal hit and run was driving under the influence. “In this case, two brothers were walking beside I-37 when one of them was hit by a blue Chrysler PT Cruiser that took off. The man, a 39-year-old, died at the scene,” said Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P in Texas. The police had their work cut out for them, as eyewitness reports were unreliable. However, a break in the investigation came when a passenger in the PT Cruiser called police to tell […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 8, 2012 – A biker, whose main reason for living was to ride his motorcycle, lost his life in a head-on collision. “There is just no explaining how some accidents happen, nor why they happen,” said Bobby Lee, an Austin personal injury attorney of Lee, Gober and Reyna, in Texas. “This crash points out that, no matter how careful you may be on your ride, you can’t always factor in what other drivers are going to do.” This tragedy happened during a motorcycle safety week, an irony not lost on his grieving friends and […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) July 31, 2012 – Not all wrongful death lawsuits that go to court are resolved in favor of the plaintiff. This is one of those cases. “Wrongful death lawsuits are not always resolved in favor of the plaintiff, and this case is one of those instances. In this story, a jury found in favor of officials at a jail where an inmate had died due to drug withdrawal while in custody,” explained Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. The 41-year-old female prisoner died in 2005. The woman’s family filed […]
