George C. of Grand Prairie, Texas, shares his Reyes Browne Reilley experience with our staff and customer service while helping him recover from damages stemming from a car truck crash.
“My name is George Louis Cruit III. I was, on July the 1st, 2016, heading west on Main Street in Grand Prairie. They had construction, and the right hand lane was blocked, so I was in the left hand lane. The truck driver of the truck that hit me was in the median, in the middle of the, uh, of the … on the left hand side. He at the last minute, after I passed him going through a green light, he turned right into me. Uh, we pulled over into the parking lot of, um, a business and we called the police, and they came out and filled out an accident report, and all that, and took the damage down. And then, at that time, I had went home … I mean, I had went to work and then I went back home. And then a few days later I started having really severe pain in my left knee, and I went and, uh … went to an emergency room to be checked out. And then after I did that, I called, uh, Reyes, Browne and Reilley, uh, lawyers office and I got set up for an appointment. And I went there, and they got me started in my medical care to, uh, take care of my injuries and everything that were accentuated by the accident. I’m very pleased with how they handled my case. And, um … I just want to thank them for everything that they’ve done for me and my family.”
The US Public Interest Research Group Education Fund has found asbestos in crayons. The agency conducted tests on six brands of crayons sold at Dollar Tree. Five of the six brands passed, with the exception of Playskool. Dangerous amounts of Tremoline were detected inside of their green crayon. Tremoline is a type of Asbestos, and exposure to this harmful chemical can cause life threatening complications such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and others.
The US PIRG has asked retailers of Playskool crayons to stop selling them immediately remove them from their inventory. This affected retailers such as Dollar Tree, Amazon, eBay, and DollarDays.com.
“We are conducting a thorough investigation into these claims, including working with Leap Year, the licensee of the product,” Katy Hendrickson Director, Hasbro’s director of global communications said.
According to an article in the Waco Tribune-Herald, BSR Surf Resort voluntarily closed its wave pool on Friday while the Center for Disease Control tested for Naegleria fowleri, an extremely rare and deadly single-celled organism known as the “brain-eating amoeba.” The investigation follows the tragic death of New Jersey surfer Fabrizio “Fab” Stabile, who passed away from an infection caused by the amoeba shortly after surfing BSR’s wave pool.
Under premises liability laws, all property that is open to the public must be safe and reasonably free of hazards. To this degree, every public swimming pool and water park, including BSR surf resort accidents, are required to maintain a residual chlorine level of one-two parts per million to protect their guests from amoebic infection. If they fail in this basic safety obligation, owners and operators could be held liable for the wrongful death of an amoeba victim.
The CDC states that the brain-eating amoeba is found in warm freshwater, such as lakes, rivers and hot springs. In rare cases, the amoeba has been found in inadequately chlorinated swimming pools and even tap water. The amoeba is only contracted through the nose, once it enters the nose it travels to the brain where it causes primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), which is usually fatal. According to the CDC’s website, symptoms usually start one to nine days after swimming, and those infected typically die one to 18 days after the symptoms begin to show.

DALLAS—A local Dallas musician was recently the victim of a hit and run while he was walking on a Downtown Dallas sidewalk, leaving him a trip to the emergency room, injuries to the face and the financial burden of paying for injuries caused by no fault of his own.
The vehicle was a rental scooter traveling at full speed.
Cody Daniels, 31, is likely the city’s first hit-and-run victim via rental scooter.
No matter your walk off life, there’s a better than zero chance that when presented with cheap, two-wheeled motorized transportation on demand, you’re going to give in. There’s also a better than zero chance that once you’ve begun to scoot on your Lime or Bird scooter, you’ve wiped out.
Eating pavement, it seems, is an inevitable consequence for some scooter commuters, raising the question: Who’s responsible for paying for all of these inevitable accidents?
Something drivers quickly come to understand is that there is something to be said for experience. Insurance companies charge higher premiums for younger drivers specifically because of this. If you’re a young male getting his license for the first time,don’t be surprised if you pay $100-$200 a month for insurance, or more.
Meanwhile, if you’re over twenty-five with a clean driving record, you can get a full policy on a motorhome for around $1k a year. While we’re on the age of twenty-five, it’s notable that this age is when you become able to rent a car. If you acquired a license at sixteen, by twenty-five you’ve had nine years of experience. This allows you to understand how people act behind the wheel, and how to be subconsciously aware of what goes on around you.
