MotorcycleAccidentsMotorcycle accidents happen in a blink of an eye. The biker is often left with very little time to maneuver to safety, causing them to lay the bike down or simply take the hit straight on. As a result, the injuries that motorcycle riders and passengers incur are regularly more severe than that of those in the vehicle that hit them.

Injuries mean hospital stays, lost wages, long recovery, hospital bills. Big ones. In a typical motorcycle accident here in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas, the amount of medical bills can exceed $100,000 in just the first few days of treatment. We have had countless cases where injured bikers have been in the hospital for weeks, and even months, at a time.

EasttexasEminent Domain and Condemnation is the process by which the city, county, state, or private utility or other statutorily granted entity, may come in and force you to sell all or part of your property to them under the guise of a public need. For the purposes of this article, the party claiming a public need will be called a “state actor”.

Although it is a fairly complicated process, the state actor will institute negotiations with the property owner in an attempt to purchase the property outright without actually entering into the “eminent domain” process.

Under Texas law, there are three elements required to show for eminent domain:  (1) The actor must be the state or a private entity authorized to condemn; (2) the property must be taken for public use; and (3) the landowner must receive adequate compensation for the condemned property.

First responders are reporting heavy guardrail damage with a portion stretched across one lane of the highway. The 18-wheeler is blocking the other lane of the highway — forcing a complete closure.

HuntCountySabineRiverHunt County is a mostly rural county. Everyone knows that Greenville is exploding in size, but what people do not know is that the rest of the county is getting ready to catch up. The people are great and the cities and towns bring back memories of what Texas was like growing up. But even Hunt County simply cannot escape the growth in nearby Dallas, Collin and Rockwall counties. Between 2014-2015 and 2015-2016, Hunt County’s year over year growth spiked from just over 1.2% to 2.48%. Similar growth has continued in the county in  2017 and early 2018 so far.

As a lawyer, what I see coming for Hunt county is increased traffic and traffic accidents and an uptick in civil litigation. Residential growth always leads to commercial growth. Both of those lead to civil litigation, such as real estate and breach of contract litigation. When most people think of hiring a lawyer, their first thought is “I need a Dallas lawyer!”

However, that is simply not the case. Hunt county has numerous attorneys who are capable handling any of your civil litigation needs. Guest and Gray, P.C. is a law firm based out of Kaufman and Rockwall counties that seeks to represent people in civil litigation matters all across East and Northeast Texas, including: Kaufman, Rockwall, Hunt, Anderson, Henderson, Hopkins, Lamar, Rains, Rusk, Smith, and Van Zandt county areas.

As a lawyer, what I see coming for Van Zandt county is increased traffic and traffic accidents and an uptick in civil litigation. Residential growth always leads to commercial growth.
