Were you recently in an accident caused by a negligent and intoxicated driver? If so, you may be eligible for compensation beyond a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. Some states, including North Carolina, give you the opportunity to sue a third party that sold or gave alcohol to the driver in question.
Dogs are commonly known as man’s best friend, but no one can fully predict how an animal will act in an unfamiliar, threatening situation. Each year, dogs bite around 4.7 million people in America, and almost half of that number is children between five and nine.
Truckers have the difficult job of navigating roads and freeways in a vehicle much larger than the average car. While they have their own safety standards and requirements, it is also important that other drivers share the responsibility of keeping the road safe.
Car accidents range in severity from minor fender benders or parking lot accidents to tragic collisions that cause serious injury or even death. Oftentimes, having an accurate record of what happened when the accident occurred can protect you if you suffered injury at the hands of another.
There are numerous sources for anger and frustration while driving, such as slow-moving traffic. Some drivers do not handle these stressors well, nor their subsequent emotions. In fact, close to 80 percent of drivers show some degree of road rage at least once a year, reports AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
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.
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.
