Will You Recognize When Someone Is Drowning?

With summer months fast approaching, children and adults alike will soon try to take a break from the heat by visiting pools, ponds, rivers and other recreational swimming spots. As a casual onlooker, however, will you be able to recognize the signs of someone struggling to stay above water from harmless horse-play?

I've been awarded money for damages, how do I collect?

The entire process of an injury claim is long and frustrating, but receiving your settlement can be even more so. For some individuals, the struggle doesn't end when the case does. It ends when they are made whole by the judgment awarded to them.

What kind of compensation is available in personal injury cases?

When you suffer an injury as the result of someone else's negligence, you have a right to seek compensation from the responsible party. Most people think of personal injury compensation as pain and suffering, but there are actually a number of different categories for which a victim can ask to be recompensed. That's because the damages from an injury can affect a person's quality of life in a wide variety of ways.

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.

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.

Who?s responsible for an injury on someone else?s property?

When you enter someone else's property, you make a reasonable assumption that the owners have taken steps to keep you safe from potential hazards. Sadly, that's not always the case and millions of Americans suffer injuries as a result, including broken bones, brain trauma and permanent disabilities. Often, owners and insurance companies try to skirt their responsibilities and leave victims unable to work and with a host of ongoing medical bills.

Louisiana judge raises constitutionality question in oil lawsuit

After the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East filed a lawsuit against just under 100 different oil companies over their alleged maltreatment of wetlands in coastal areas, a judge may be willing to challenge the validity of a law that indemnifies them.
