Dallas personal injury lawyerValentine’s Day is supposed to be a fun and romantic holiday. However, some of the enjoyable gifts we associate with the holiday can become dangerous. There are certain risks associated with any holiday - drunk driving is always a big one - and a few that are unique to Valentine’s Day. Some of these risks affect everyone. Others are more likely to affect children. If you or your child suffered any of these injuries on Valentine’s Day, you may want to speak to a personal injury attorney to determine whether another party may be liable for your injuries. It is best to call a lawyer as soon are you are able to after your injury. The sooner an attorney can begin investigating your case, the easier it may be to build your case. 

What Valentine’s Day Injuries Might Someone Else Be Liable For?

Valentine’s Day is not typically thought of as a dangerous holiday, but it can be when people are negligent and celebrate in an unsafe manner. Common types of personal injuries on Valentine’s Day include: 

  • Fires - Candles can be quite romantic, creating a pleasant, nice-smelling atmosphere. However, they can also be dangerous. Those who live in apartments, duplexes, or townhomes are the most likely to be at risk of getting injured in a fire started by a careless neighbor who has placed a candle too close to a flammable object. Fires may also break out when people who do not typically do much cooking make an attempt at preparing a romantic dinner and do not succeed. 
  • Drunk driving - Many couples enjoy a bottle of wine or champagne on Valentine’s Day. Single adults may also indulge. This can become quite a problem if they attempt to drive themselves or their sweethearts home afterwards. Drunk driving accidents tend to increase a bit on this holiday. Few things are less romantic than a car crash and a trip to the emergency room. 
  • Choking - Toys and candies given to children on Valentine’s Day can sometimes become dangerous when choking hazards are present. Even some stuffed animals can be hazardous if they have plastic eyes or other parts that can detach and wind up in a young child’s mouth. Children’s toys should generally be free of choking hazards.

Fun and romantic Valentine’s Day celebrations can quickly turn dangerous when appropriate caution is not exercised. If you or your child were harmed this holiday by someone else’s negligence, make sure you seek immediate medical attention - then call a personal injury lawyer. 


Carrollton Catastrophic Injury LawyerThe owner or manager of a building that includes a stairway has a duty to maintain that stairway in a safe condition.

In some tragic cases, stairway accidents can even be fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured on an unsafe stairway, a lawyer may be able to recover compensation. It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a stairway accident. 

What is Considered a Dangerous Condition on a Stairway? 

A number of conditions can render a stairway unsafe, and the premises owner is responsible for making sure these conditions do not exist. The premises owner may be found negligent and ordered to compensate the injured parties if any of the following dangerous conditions exist: 

  • Low Lighting - If a person using the stairway cannot see very well, they are at a higher risk of tripping or falling and getting hurt. Stairways must be kept well-lit. 


TX injury lawyerThere are multiple types of catastrophic injuries that can have drastic effects on a person’s short-term and long-term health. Brain injuries can be especially harmful, but they are not always easy to recognize, since their symptoms can sometimes be delayed. When a person suffers a blow to the head in a situation such as a car accident or work accident, the full effects of their injury may not become known until days or weeks after they were initially injured. By understanding the symptoms a person may experience and the long-term ramifications of an injury, a victim and their loved ones can take legal action to pursue compensation from the person or parties who were responsible.

Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

A traumatic brain injury or TBI involves damage to brain tissue resulting from a blow to the head or a strong jolt to the body that causes the brain to move around inside the skull. This may result in bruising of the brain, torn brain tissue, or serious bleeding, which can put pressure on the brain and cause additional damage. A mild traumatic brain injury may result in symptoms such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, confusion, temporary memory loss, or loss of consciousness. These symptoms will usually last for a short period of time, typically around a few days to a week.

Moderate or severe brain injuries can be much more serious, and they may result in some of the same symptoms as mild brain injuries, although these symptoms may persist for a longer period of time. A victim may also experience other long-term symptoms that affect their quality of life, such as chronic headaches, weakness in the body, loss of coordination, sleep disorders that result in difficulty sleeping or sleeping more than normal, slurred speech or difficulty expressing themselves, problems with concentration, impairments to hearing or vision, mood disorders such as anxiety or depression, personality changes involving anger or irritability, sensitivity to light or sound, continued memory loss, or seizures.
