What happens when you get hurt at the store?

Any facility that is open to the public should take reasonable steps to prevent injury to those who visit. Those steps could include snow or ice removal in the winter, addressing spills inside quickly and maintaining the property. Broken railings, glass or pavement could all create unnecessary hazards for the public. Overly waxed flooring could result in a slip-and-fall incident. Even furniture and fixtures improperly mounted or constructed could create a risk of injury.

Drunk driving accidents are far too common in Texas

Most people understand that getting behind the wheel after a few drinks is a dangerous decision. It's also illegal, as every driver in Texas learns during pre-licensing education programs. However, some people do still choose to drive after consuming alcohol. These individuals often place others at increased risk of a collision or crash. Alcohol can have a profound impact on someone's ability to manage a vehicle.

Summer sun glare could cause a crash, so invest in sunglasses

As our hemisphere tilts closer toward the sun, many incredible things happen. Weather becomes warmer, thanks to stronger solar radiation heating up our part of the planet. The days also become longer, meaning that there are more minutes and hours of sunlight. The intensity of the light we experience also increases, meaning there's now more risk than in other seasons of both sunburn and serious glare in your eyes.

Watch out for people handling phones while driving

You try your best to be a responsible driver. That means avoiding alcohol when you know you have to drive and ensuring you are alert enough to safely manage a car. It also means that you keep your hands and your eyes off your smartphone while you're driving. Unfortunately, far too many other people make the opposite, less responsible decision. They choose to indulge in distraction and put others at risk for a crash.
