Legal issues related to getting hurt at a gym in North Carolina

If someone is not careful at the gym, they may get hurt. Dropping equipment or straining too hard are common causes of injury. However, there are also times when patrons are hurt due to faulty equipment or equipment that is not properly maintained by the gym owners.

What you should know about traumatic brain injury

If you have experienced a car crash, traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is just one of the possible injuries. While car accidents occupy a leading position among the causes of TBI, this type of injury may not get a diagnosis right away. It is important to remain informed about the symptoms and potential consequences of this condition so you can get the right help.

More trucks involved in deadly crashes

More large trucks and buses are becoming involved in fatal accidents in North Carolina and around the country according to a report from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The agency observed increases between 2014 and 2015 in both the number of commercial vehicles weighing in excess of 10,000 pounds involved in fatal crashes and the number of fatal accidents per 100 million miles traveled by trucks and buses.

Car accident deaths caused by distracted driving on the rise

Advances in technology have allowed for office-based businessmen to hit the road, parents to track the whereabouts of children and a wider choice in entertainment. However, advances have also resulted in an epidemic of distracted driving in North Carolina and across the country. According to some analysts, defensive driving basics are all undercut by technology that takes attention away from the road.

Dog bites are resulting in record high insurance payouts

Many think of dogs as man’s best friend, but when a strange dog is barreling at you or baring its teeth, the last thing you think of is cuddling or playing fetch. The reality is that dogs attack thousands of people each year, and many victims are injured, maimed or killed during the attack. Children and postal workers are particularly susceptible, and insurance companies are paying out in record numbers to those who are injured.

Grain handling accidents rose in 2016

Agriculture workers in North Carolina and nationwide continue to face hazards in grain silos, according to a new report on grain handling accidents. The report, conducted by Purdue University, comes out at a time when some agriculture industry groups are pushing for the discontinuation of federal safety awareness programs on grain handling.

Determining fault for bar or club injuries

If a North Carolina resident is injured in a bar or nightclub, the law generally holds the venue responsible. However, there are situations in which an injured patron may be declared responsible for his or her own injuries. In one such case, a man claimed that he was injured while watching a hardcore rock concert at a popular nightclub in Time's Square in New York.
