Be careful as you rush around Raleigh

We have all more or less grown accustomed to the hectic pace of modern life. We rush from our Raleigh homes to jobs and then off to stores and businesses after work and then for parents, off to schools or after-school activities and often much more before heading home again. It is always important, even in the constant rushing around, to remember to proceed carefully as we hurry in and out of businesses as part of our daily rush to get everything done.

North Carolina woman injured in slip and fall in Walmart

If you drive about 100 miles southwest of Raleigh, you will come to Wadesboro, the Anson County seat. The modest-sized town is home to a Walmart Superstore where a North Carolina woman slipped on blueberries and fell. The injuries she sustained in the fall on her back have caused her “unbearable pain,” she said in her premises liability lawsuit.

Premises liability: a brief explanation, with examples

If you are injured on someone else’s Raleigh property, you might be entitled to compensation by the property owner. If you are that owner, you should know that you’re responsible for maintaining your property and ensuring safe conditions so that injuries do not happen.

Southwest passenger prevails in premises liability lawsuit

Along with Delta, Frontier, American Airlines, Jet Blue and United, Southwest Airlines carries passengers to and from Raleigh-Durham International Airport every day.

Insult to injury? MGM’s suit against shooting victims questioned

When Raleigh news media first reported the story, many people checked twice to make sure that they had read correctly. People across the nation were taken aback when MGM Resorts recently filed a lawsuit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas shooting.

Former NFL star awarded $12.5 million in premises liability suit

Pro football fans here in Raleigh undoubtedly remember Reggie Bush, the speedy running back who was drafted by the New Orleans Saints back in 2006. The former USC star had some success in the NFL, but never quite lived up to the hype and expectations that surrounded him after he won the 2005 Heisman trophy.

Bounce houses can cause surprising injuries

Party games in so-called "bounce houses" may be more dangerous than they appear for North Carolina kids and families. One accident that hurt a 9-year-old boy is drawing attention to the harms that can result from these attractions. On a Saturday afternoon in California, strong winds sent an inflatable bounce house into the air; it flew a quarter of a mile away, where it landed in traffic on Highway 365. Once the inflatable structure came to the ground, the boy fell out and hit a car on the road.

Study links poor surface friction to slip and falls

CNA Financial Corporation has released a Slip and Fall Study Report, which should be of interest to business owners across North Carolina. After analyzing all of the slip and fall liability claims filed against CNA from January 2010 to December 2016, researchers found that while slip and fall incidents were more frequent than they were deadly, they were often the result of poor surface friction.
