Truck inspections are important to drivers’ safety

As a motorist, it can be daunting sharing highways with large commercial vehicles. If you’re driving a car, you are likely to sustain major damage and potentially devastating injuries in an accident with a large truck.

Truck inspections play an important role in keeping truckers and the general public safe.

Conservative Organizations Fight Against Federalizing State Medical Malpractice Laws

Federal lawmakers are quietly trying to push through legislation that will limit your right to hold unsafe health care providers accountable for preventable medical errors. The legislation will create a $250,000 federal cap on the amount a jury can award in a medical malpractice case. More than 30 states have some form of caps on damages in such cases, while 18 states prevent restrictions on jury awards either by constitutional provision or state court decisions holding such caps are unconstitutional.

The dangers of heat stroke

Living in Arizona, we know how hot it can get in the summer. However, heat can be more than just uncomfortable. It can be deadly.

Heat stroke can happen to anyone. It is more common in the elderly and people with health issues, but anyone is susceptible to the dangers of heat. In some cases, another party may be liable if your loved one passes away from heat stroke.

Traumatic brain injuries in kids and teens

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is severe for anyone. However, for kids and teens, who are still developing cognitively and physically, a head injury can be even more devastating.

When a child suffers a brain injury, they may be stuck with a lifetime of treatment or reduced brain function.

How do you know if you have a medical malpractice case?

Determining whether a situation constitutes medical malpractice can be difficult. Sometimes medical procedures don’t work, or the result doesn’t come out as expected. That alone, however, is not enough to constitute medical malpractice. Healthcare professionals are not perfect.

At the same time, doctors and nurses have a duty to take care of patients. Unexpected outcomes in medical care become potential medical malpractice lawsuits when healthcare professionals are negligent.

How "tort reform" will limit your rights

Bills pending in the US Congress, if passed, will severely limit individual's rights to recover damages for injuries caused by medical professionals. Advocates of stripping citizens of their Constitutional rights, the so-called "tort reformers" falsely claim that doing so will reduce costs and improve healthcare for Americans. To the contrary, these myths have been repeatedly debunked in study after study.

Fatal crashes increase across the country. Why?

Who would have thought that an increase in the quality of our economy could potentially lead to more traffic accidents? Advocates for vehicular safety have actually made ties to the stimulated economy and the recent influx of wrecks on the road.

The National Safety Council has estimated that 40,200 people have lost their lives to motor vehicle accidents in just 2016, which is a six percent increase from the previous year. This would make 2016 the first year since 2007 that over 40,000 people have been killed by vehicular accidents in just a singular year.
