What to do if you're hurt in an accident

When you've been involved in an accident, whether it's a car crash or a slip and fall incident, it's natural to feel a little confused about what to do. For one thing, the accident may have left you feeling woozy or in shock, which can make taking the appropriate actions even more difficult.

Authorities investigating the cause of plane crash

Imagine this scenario: a couple gets back from church one morning to discover that a plane has crashed in their backyard. They rush out to look for survivors and find the roof of the plane completely ripped off. One man is dead but one man has survived, though he's severely injured. That's exactly what happened in mid June in a small Texan town outside of San Antonio.

Teenager killed in distracted driving accident

If you read that headline, you might think you know the whole story. After all, we've heard it before ad nauseum: a teenage driver gets on his phone to send a text and, in so doing, looks away from the road for a split second and causes a catastrophic car accident. But that's why this story of a fatal accident is such an important reminder for every driver in the country.

What to do if you're involved in a hit and run

The moments immediately following an accident can be bewildering. You may be injured and in need of medical help or just dazed and unsure of what just happened. Even if you're perfectly fine, the shock of it all can make the situation confusing. That confusion is even more pronounced when you're involved in a hit-and-run accident. In your anger and stress, you may think it's a good idea to chase the fleeing driver. This is never a good idea as it could easily lead to another accident or even have the other driver retaliating against you.

How does a personal injury case work?

There's no way around it: accidents are a fact of life. From our first tumble as a child to our fender benders as adults, human beings accept a certain amount of risk as they go about their daily routines. However, there are mishaps that occur thanks to the negligence of another party, leaving victims with serious injuries and life-altering disabilities. Victims of these types of accidents shouldn't have to shoulder the burden of medical expenses, loss of wages or funeral costs alone.

As Americans, there's an assumption that the cars we drive have been vetted for our safety, both by the manufacturers of the vehicles and the government agencies responsible for such regulation. Sadly, that's not always the case and that makes an already dangerous endeavor even more perilous.

Family killed in tragic aviation accident

For those who have dreamed of flying a plane for their entire lives, becoming a pilot is a glorious thing. That feeling of elation as you pull back on the yoke and lift off the ground is indescribable, especially after you've trained for years to make the moment happen. Unfortunately, even the best pilots can run into difficulties, from weather to poor tower communication and manufacturing defects in planes. And, unlike car crashes, which are often survivable, airplane accidents are usually fatal, especially when they involve small aircraft

Louisiana crash leaves one 18-year-old dead

We take getting in a car and driving for granted, but the fact is that it's one of the most dangerous endeavors we undertake on a daily basis. Some argue that they're incredibly safe drivers and always take every precaution. That very well may be the case, but there are others on the road who aren't as conscientious. Many text or talk on the phone while driving. Some drive while their eyes are closing from fatigue. Others get behind the wheel after they've had too much to drink. Sadly, the car accidents caused by these decisions can have devastating results.
