Construction site accidents

A construction site is a potentially dangerous place to be; unfortunately, it is the workplace for thousands of construction workers. Construction workers not only work at elevated heights, they also lift heavy objects and operate large machinery.

What can happen from a dog attack

The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that there are about 800,000 dog bites each year. Some of the bites are severe enough to require a doctor's care.

Personal injury calculators

For those of you who do not know what a personal injury calculator is, let me explain. It helps you determine the amount you can claim for damages and losses from the person who caused the personal injury. It also gives you an idea what lump sum amount you will receive for your settlement.

Two young people are dead

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department reported that a young woman lost control of her vehicle in Hesperia, rolled over several times and killed the two other young people in the back seat. The car accidenthappened at 2:00 a.m. One of the passengers died at the scene and the other died at a local hospital. The passenger in the front seat sustained minor injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated. The driver was still in the hospital at the time of this writing.

Slip and Fall facts

Slip and fall accidents cause thousands of injuries every year. A slightly wet floor in a supermarket can cause a broken leg or permanent spinal cord damage. It can land an individual in a wheelchair for the rest of his or her life.

A celebrity malpractice case

Here is a perfect case of medical malpractice. I am sure everyone has read about the doctor who treated Michael Jackson when he died. This doctor not only administered medication to Mr. Jackson that he should not have, but left him alone to make phone calls while doing so.

A non-action wrongful death

Are you aware that if you attend a party, drink too much, drive home and get involved in a fatal accident, the host of the party may be liable for your actions? The host may be liable because he or she should have stopped you from getting behind the wheel drunk. This is a case when a wrongful death is not the result of a person's negligent actions.

What is a personal injury?

I thought I would begin the year off by summarizing what a personal injury is. A personal injury is the result of the negligence of another person. It can occur from an automobile accident, a slip or fall on a wet surface. It can happen outside, inside a grocery store or other type of store, or at your friend's home.
