That's a good dog!
Sure he can sue ( maybe I'll make the news as a stupid criminal). Hopefully you're properly insured (some breeds of dogs are excluded). If you receive a notice letter or if you are served with a lawsuit, you must properly notify the insurance company, demanding that they defend you and indemnify you for any cover losses. You must also cooperate with a higher for you. Rest assured that if the facts are as you related, even a baby lawyer on staff with your insurance company should have an easy time winning.

It could take 6 months for DPS to return results. If negative, the State may send it back for a second round (THC, benzodiazepines, amphetimines, etc). The State should reveal results to defense counsel no later than the next setting after they are received.See question

As for the law, you have some good defenses, likely including "Act of God" (force majeur). Even the 18-wheeler driver that rear-ended the other 18-wheeler will likely have that defense.
I agree with Mr. Wooten - let your insurer defend the claim. They'll hire a lawyer for you if you are sued. Your job is to notify the insurer, provide copies of all papers received, and to cooperate with the insurer and the lawyers they hire to defend you. If you had a personal lawyer, he/she would likely recommend that you refrain from communications with the truck drivers, their employers, their lawyers, and their insurers. Yor lawyer would likely advise you to let those folks communicate with your insurer.See question
My husband disagree to put his name in the check. The defendant told him if his name will not be in the check, he need to sign the waiver. Which is better his name on the check or he will sign the release. I have no lawyer.
It depends. If you had a lawyer, he or she could analyze the facts (more facts than you provided here). What's good for you might or might not be good for your husband. What is the "waiver"? Have you seen it? WIll your husband sign it? Should he sign it? What's good for the defendant and/or his/her insurer might not be best for you and/or your husband. So many unanswered questions.See question

You are probably at your dad's bedside. It sounds like it is too late for him to execute documents, so you need to have an attorney review any documents that are in place. This is a holiday week, so you might try to get something scheduled today.See question

You need a lawyer to file an application for temporary guardianship (and perhaps to convert to permanent).
The Texas Estates Code allows for temporary gaurdianship If there is insufficient time to create a permanent guardianship, if the probate court is presented with substantial evidence that a person is incapacitated, and the court has probable cause to believe that the immediate appointment of a guardian is required, it may appoint a temporary guardian with limited power as the circumstances require. Tex. Estates Code § 1251.001. A temporary guardianship created for immediate necessity may not remain in effect for more than 60 days. Theoretically, this should allow sufficient time to complete all the formalities and notice requirements to create a permanent guardianship. In relaity, it is often wise for the application for temporary guardianship to also request convesrion to permanent guardianship after the permanent guardianship procedure's much more strict notice and proof requirements are met.
A person seeking to be appointed as a guardian must be represented by a qualified lawyer. A recent change in the Texas Estates Code, effective as of September 2015, requires any lawyer representing a guardian to have completed the course and to hold a certificate from the State Bar).See question

It depends. Perhaps they filed multiple lawsuits against you. If a motion to reinstate is granted, then there would be a live lawsuit against you, and any limitations defense would need to be riased by you in your pleadings as an affirmative defense.
Turn it all over to each liability insurer that might cover this occurrence, demanding that the insurer(s) defend and indemnify for any loss. If you have no coverage in place, hire a lawyer to review and advise of your options (and to make sure there is no coverage to protect you).See question

Mr. Bain is correct about AAA. Hopefully the contractor doesn't want to pay AAA either. See a lawyer now and don't trust the contractor's legal conclusions (even in the unlikely event he's a lawyer, he's not your lawyer).See question
