We are planning on having a local Texas trucking lawyer come speak about what the options are if you and your dog are in a serious truck accident. Because of a trucks size and weight to a car’s size and weight when you and your pet are involved in a crash that involves a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, the results can be devastating. I can tell you from experience, having a truck accident lawyer on your side can make all the difference. A truck accident lawyer who is also a dog owner will ensure you and your pet receives fair compensation for any injuries, as well as for emotional, or financial losses. Depending upon the circumstances additional compensation can be litigated for property damage, lost income, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Our truck accident lawyer offers free consultations and works on a contingency basis.
The local merchants have banded together to create a continuing stream of revenue to support the Pet Fair and the local animal groups. Employers can find products to incentivize their employees where 25% of the proceeds is given back to the community simply by purchasing from the Houston Area Pet Fair corporate gifts web store. In addition, one of the coordinators from the The Houston Area Pet Fair organization approached a gift basket business asking if they would help out by donating some gift baskets that would appeal to visitors. Turns out the owners are big dog lovers and were delighted to add their support to this cause. They offered a coupon code which when used will send give 10% of the purchase price to the local animal groups.
