What if I'm injured near a construction site?

Construction is not just a dangerous industry to work in. Sometimes, injuries to passerby can occur because of debris or poorly-marked construction zones. When this happens, it may be possible to file a claim against the construction company itself.

Who's at fault in a slip and fall injury?

If you are out running errands and you get injured from a fall, is someone at fault? Do you just have to accept that accidents happen and deal with the damage, or can someone be held accountable? If you slip due to a dangerous condition, such as a wet floor or torn carpet, it's possible that you can make a premises liability claim for your injury.

Teen driver deaths increase for the first time in 10 years

A recent study published by the Governor's Highway Safety Association, titled Mission Not Accomplished, analyzed teen driving deaths since 2005. From 2005 to 2014, the number of deaths caused by teen drivers decreased dramatically, from 7,500 in 2005 to 3,885 in 2014. While every traffic death is a tragic event, the overall decrease in deaths was unquestionably a positive trend.

Self-driving cars: Ready or not, here they come

Years ago, the idea of a car going from one destination to another without a driver was fantasy. In recent years, however, self-driving, or driverless cars have made great strides. Tesla, GM, Ford, BMV and Volvo are among the automakers that are testing self-driving cars. Google and ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft have also made substantial investments in self-driving technology.

Drowsy driving can be a threat to everyone on the road

Everyone knows that driving is a task that requires a person's full concentration. The stakes are simply too high to drive while distracted or intoxicated. Despite this, people continue to engage in these risky types of behavior. Another threat that gets less attention, but is still a real problem, is drowsy driving. People who take to the road without enough rest put themselves and others at risk.

How to avoid construction site accidents

The national average of construction-related deaths is higher than in any other work sector in the U.S. When employers cut safety corners or fail to follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines and rules, construction work becomes even more dangerous. OSHA citations usually involve hazards relating to ladders, scaffolding, excavation and trenching, lack of head and fall protection, electrical wiring, communication and general safety provisions.

What is distracted driving?

If you think distracted driving laws only apply to cell phone use, think again. From 2010 to 2014, almost 800,000 vehicular accidents have been associated with distracted, or inattentive, drivers. These accidents have been caused or influenced by drivers engaging in mobile phone calls, texting, conversing with passengers, eating, drinking, navigating, grooming, watching videos, or adjusting sound and entertainment systems. Anything that requires the manual, visual, or cognitive attention of a driver is distracted driving.

7 signs of medical malpractice

Many people who have been injured by a medical practitioner wonder if their case is one of medical malpractice, and if they would have grounds for a lawsuit. Accidents do happen, and not every medical mistake equates to malpractice. That is true of procedures that were not performed correctly, illnesses that were misdiagnosed or not diagnosed earlier, and other concerns. In order to help determine whether you might have a case for medical malpractice, there are some specific indicators to consider.
