Stalking in Texas: definitions and criminal consequences

Like many Texas residents, you have heard about the term “stalking,” but you may be confused as to what, exactly, qualifies as stalking behavior.

Much of what we see on television shows and social media trivializes actual stalking or assigns a humorous aspect to it. For example, a co-worker might jokingly say you are stalking her if you run into her a few times outside your workplace. Or, someone in your social group might accuse you of stalking if you ask her out and she declines, and a few months later you ask her out again in hopes that she has changed her mind.

You can still suffer injuries in a low-speed collision

Most of the time, car accidents that make the news involve death or significant injuries. Take the recent case of an eight-year-old girl who suffered severe injuries due to a head-on collision that authorities attributed to distracted driving.

Plenty of car accidents occur every day around Texas, but thankfully most of them are not as extreme. They typically involve cars traveling less than 10 miles per hour. They may not make the news, but the people involved can still suffer serious injuries. Even when both cars involved were not traveling at fast speeds, the drivers and passengers may still sustain injuries.

Steps to take after a motorcycle accident

Motorcycle accidents are extremely dangerous. The rider does not have as much protection as a motorist, but many riders do manage to walk away from these incidents with minimal injuries. Take the recent case of a Texas man who collided with an SUV and walked away with only a few scratches. 

No matter how you feel directly after the motorcycle crash, there are several steps you want to take in the immediate aftermath. You want to ensure you can pay for any medical bills you receive and that you receive proper compensation, especially if someone else was ultimately negligent. 

Protecting your child from heavy furniture and appliances

A few weeks ago, a young girl died when a wall mirror at a Payless ShoeSource store fell on top of her. This tragic incident illustrated the dangers of heavy objects insecurely mounted on walls or within the reach of young children, where they may fall on top of them. It is crucial for you and other Texas parents to understand the ways in which to protect your children from heavy objects in your home.

Every 45 minutes across the country, a child visits a hospital emergency room because of a television set toppling over on him or her. Large screen TVs are just one of the heavy object dangers that your child can encounter in a home setting.

In Texas, a DWI conviction is costly in more ways than one

If you think you are in good enough shape to drive after having a few drinks with friends, you run the risk of being stopped by law enforcement on suspicion of drunk driving.

In the state of Texas, a conviction for driving while intoxicated comes with harsh penalties—and not only in terms of the fines you must pay.

Did police catch you with pot in Houston?

If the police arrested you on drug charges, now is the time to gather your resources and plan a clear-headed strategy for how to move forward. Drug possession charges carry steep penalties, and the risks to your future are serious.

Especially if this is your first time facing drug possession charges, you should inform yourself about the nature of drug possession laws in Houston and Harris County, Texas, so you can have a better idea of the judicial process you will face.

Hidden injuries you should watch for after a car accident

As a Houston resident, you are no stranger to car accident reports. You may also see your share of them as you travel back and forth between school, home and work. As often as you see victims carrying on with their lives like their accidents never happened, there is always the possibility of them having hidden injuries. 

Car accidents can cause you to end up with injuries that are not visually obvious. You could feel and look normal, not realizing that you have internal injuries that require immediate medical attention. Take some time to learn about hidden car accident wounds

Roof collapses can cause unexpected damages

When Texans think about injuries and negligence, roof collapses are likely not the first cause they think of. Rather, they may often imagine, read or hear on the news about car and truck accidents, which certainly do cause many injuries and even fatalities.

However, structural problems due to lack of maintenance, defective construction, incompetent repair work or other forms of negligent behavior are not all that uncommon.

What to look for in a criminal defense attorney

Finding yourself charged with a crime is quite possibly one of the most serious events you will face in your life.

It can be intimidating to understand your next steps, as well as your legal rights and obligations regarding the particular charges you face. This is one moment in life when you should seek out a strong and experienced advocate to assist you as you work your way through the criminal justice system.

"Executory Contracts" en Transacciones Inmobiliarias bajo las Leyes de Texas

Al comprar bienes raíces con financiamiento, el Comprador puede acudir a un tercero o al Vendedor. En muchas transacciones inmobiliarias, la propiedad y posesión de un bien son transmitidos del Vendedor al Comprador en la fecha de Cierre; pero, en ciertas transacciones, especialmente cuando el financiamiento corre a cargo del Vendedor, la posesión se le otorga al Comprador, pero la propiedad la retiene el Vendedor hasta una fecha en el futuro, en muchos casos, hasta que el Vendedor ha recibido el pago completo del Comprador. Este tipo de transacciones se conocen comúnmente en Ingles como contratos "executory contracts" o "rent-to-own".
