About a month ago this blog lay out brief summary of how, in general, a civil lawsuit on behalf of a person injured due to a truck accident in Texas may be presented. Because the large majority of motor vehicle injury cases rely on the concept of liability due to negligence, we discussed the basic elements that a case based on this concept requires to be proved in order to succeed.

Pharmaceutical liability verdict hits major drug manufacturer
