Know what to do if you are bitten by a dog

Dogs are sometimes unpredictable, which makes them rather dangerous in some instances. People who own dogs should make sure that they are socializing them and training them so that they can be around people without incident.

There are some instances in which a dog will attack a person. These attacks range from minor bites on the hand to very severe maulings that can lead to death. No matter what type of bite you suffer, there is always the chance of infection or disease because of it.

Working on your car crash injury case from start to finish

We recently discussed how the dynamics of a car crash can have an impact on the outcome of the accident. This is one of the points that might come into the picture when you are seeking compensation for the injuries that you suffered.

There are many things that you can look at when you are trying to determine the dynamics of the crash. If you can take pictures at the scene of the crash, this might help you show what happened in the accident. You might also be able to use witness statements and other similar evidence to determine what happened.

They dynamics of an accident matter greatly

Car crashes are serious events that can impact your life in ways that you haven't begun to think about. When you are involved in a car accident that isn't your fault, there is a chance that you will opt to seek compensation for the injures that you suffered. This is something that requires you to think and plan your case carefully.

One thing that usually comes up in these cases is finding out what actually happened. This is sometimes very easy to determine, but it can also be very hard to figure out.

Dealing with traumatic brain injury after an accident

If you were in a high-impact car crash and hit your head, traumatic brain injury ranks among the more serious potential consequences. Although medical literature categorizes TBI as severe, moderate or mild, make no mistake: even "mild" TBI means you have sustained damage to your brain, making it a serious injury.

TBI can occur when you hit your head against a surface or suffer a penetrating wound to the skull. It often happens in car accidents where your vehicle comes to a sharp stop while traveling fast.

Don't let financial stress after an accident take over your life

We recently discussed what you need to think about if you are going to go after a big box store for compensation after a slip-and-fall accident. This is something that isn't always easy to handle, but it might be necessary if you are injured. We know that most people who are injured in accidents at a store need to focus on healing after the injury.

When you are worried about how you are going to pay bills, including your regular bills and an influx of medical bills, you can't really focus on anything else. This is why some people opt to seek compensation after a premises liability accident. They want to be able to focus on something other than just making ends meet.

Plan carefully if you are injured at a big box store

You probably never thought that your trip to the store would lead to you suffering from an injury that landed you in the hospital. When a shopper does experience this, the question of who is going to pay the bill is likely to come up.

While you might be one of the lucky ones who doesn't have to fight for the store to pay your medical bills, you should be prepared to fight to make this happen because most people who are injured at a big box store will face an uphill battle.

Types of distracted drivers you may encounter on the road

There are more people on the roads in Georgia during the summer season. It is no small wonder that the number of car wrecks goes up. Many causes contribute to these incidents occurring. However, alcohol, reckless behavior and distractions are the most dominant reasons. 

Of these factors, distraction may seem like the most innocuous, but it presents a significant risk to your safety. To keep yourself from sustaining property damage and injuries, you should understand the types of distracted drivers you may encounter. 

T-bone accidents can lead to serious injuries

A T-bone accident can be devastating, especially for the person who is at the point closest to the impact. When this is how you were injured in a car accident, you feel like you are never going to get back to normal after the accident. This is certainly understandable since you just suffered the impact of thousands of pounds of force.

The injuries that you suffer in one of these accidents can range from a head injury to broken bones. You might find that your neck is injured or that your spine was impacted. No matter what type of injuries you think you suffered, you should seek medical care right away since this can help you learn about what exactly occurred and how you can treat the injuries.

3 common causes of slip-and-fall accidents

Slip and falls are some of the most injurious accidents that happen. Every case is different, but there are some recurring commonalities that indicate a pattern of causation. According to Newsday, the prevalence of these accidents has even motivated the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration to pass new safety standards. The updated regulations will hopefully help prevent the many accidents that occur every year as a result of these three common contributing factors.

Emotional support animal bites airline passenger

Emotional support animals provide a valuable service for the people they serve. The issue with these animals is that they aren't always properly trained in how to deal with certain situations. Emotional support animals don't have the same training requirements that service animals have.

A recent story has some people questioning whether emotional service animals should be allowed in certain situations. The incident occurred on a flight that was slated to leave from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A man's emotional support animal attacked the person in the seat next to the owner.
