My Child Was Injured at a Daycare or Summer Camp. What Should I Do?

In 2012, 9,058 injuries were reported to the Office of Child Care. That’s not a complete list, however, as only 28 states actually report all information on daycare injuries to the government. Some states only report serious injuries or injuries resulting in death. Some only report the injuries if they’re related to child abuse or neglect. That covers the injuries at daycares, but what about summer camp injuries? In 2005, about 180 injuries were reported. It’s estimated that 1 out

What Should I Do If I’m Injured in a Department Store?

You’re shopping and slip on some water you didn’t realize was there. You work for a store and trip and fall on a carpet seam that’s come apart. If you’re injured in a department store due to the store management’s negligence, it’s important that you understand what you need to do. Per the National Floor Safety Institute, 22% of all slip, trip, and fall accidents lead to the person taking a full month off work. Wet or slippery floors account

I Slipped and Fell in a Restaurant – What Should I Do?

Slip and falls are one of the biggest risks patrons and workers can experience in a restaurant. With waitstaff busy bringing drinks to and from the bar or kitchen, there’s always the risk of a spill. Plates and bowls brimming with soups and sauces are also likely to spill. If those spills do not get cleaned up fast enough, an unsuspecting diner or staff member could slip and cause serious injury. Head injuries are one risk of a fall. There

Medical Malpractice Tips: Things to Do if You Suspect Medical Malpractice

Johns Hopkins believes over 250,000 deaths in the U.S. are the result of medical errors. Some studies believe that number could be higher than 400,000. It’s hard to pinpoint the exact number as the cause of death listed on a death certificate rarely lists “medical error.” Only cancer (over 584,000 deaths) and heart (over 611,000 deaths) take more lives than medical malpractice. When a medical error is made, it has a devastating effect on the patient, family members, and friends.

When Should I Call a Lawyer After a Car Accident?

What are your odds of being in an accident? The Traffic Safety Facts Annual Report for 2017 shows that there were over 6.4 million car accidents that year. That accounts only for accidents that were reported to the police. Some accidents go unreported. With 225 million licensed drivers on the road and 290 million registered vehicles, the odds of being in a car crash aren’t shockingly high, but there is always that risk. If you’re in a car crash, knowing

What To Do If You’re Involved in a Motorcycle Accident This Summer

Every summer, motorcyclists hit the roads. With more than 8.6 million registered motorcycles sharing the roads with cars and trucks, it’s not surprising to hear that 14% of all traffic fatalities involve a motorcycle. Helmets and leather apparel only help so much. What may be more surprising is that more than half of these crashes occur during the day. Motorcycles are often unnoticed by other drivers. Even with motorcycle drivers trying to make themselves visible to other traffic, the most

What Should I Do If I’m Hit By a Drunk Driver?

Per the CDC, over 1 million drivers were arrested for driving while intoxicated or high. That only counts arrests. In 2014’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, 111 million drivers admitted they’d driven while impaired. According to the Office of Highway Policy Information, there were 214 million licensed drivers in 2014. Theoretically, it means almost half of them admitted they’d driven while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The problem is that those admitting to DUI in the surveys may

Can I Have A Case If I’m Involved In An Auto Accident With No Injuries?

Every day, there are thousands of vehicle crashes. That number fluctuates, but there were almost 7.28 million crashes in 2016. It breaks down to almost 20,000 crashes per day. And, those are just the accidents where police were called to the scene. Many crashes are so minor that you walk away with no injuries. If that’s the case, can you still file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver? Personal injuries do not have to be physical injuries. They
