Does the age of a parent matter for custody?

You had a child with your spouse, but you were very young at the time. Now, you're just 23 with a 5-year-old child and looking at a divorce. Your spouse is several years older than you, turning 32 shortly. You're concerned that you won't be taken as seriously in court. Your age concerns you, because you know older adults usually have better career prospects and have more life experience.

Truck accidents do not always involve truck driver negligence

Trucking accidents occur regularly on Texas highways. On Dec. 21, the state witnessed one of its most freakish truck accidents, which resulted in two deaths. At about 2:22 a.m. on that date, a tanker-trailer heading east on I-10 in El Paso struck the protruding arm of a massive construction vehicle that was sticking out about four feet onto the highway. The collision turned part of the driver's side of the truck into a shredded sculpture resembling a tangled web of steel.

There are thousands of hit-and-run accidents in Texas each year. One in 5 of all pedestrian fatalities nationwide are classified as hit-and-run, according to the American Automobile Association. This type of accident raises insurance issues where there are injuries or deaths caused by the absent driver. If the tortfeasor has absconded, who is going to compensate the injured victims or the estates of deceased victims?
