Choose a Lawyer The next thing that you will have to do for anything more than a minor claim is to choose a lawyer. You should choose the lawyer soon after the injury....

Death and Injury From Traffic Crashes Continue to Be Among the Most Serious Public Health Problems

In 1966, traffic crashes resulted in over 50,000 fatalities and the fatality rate was three times as high as it is today. Congress recognized this public health crisis and created the Department of Transportation and the National Highway Safety Bureau. That momentous event was a crossroad in our nation's efforts to address this crisis. If the extraordinary progress in improving highway safety had not been made since that time, over 120,000 people would have died last year and hundreds of thousands more would have suffered traumatic injury. Death and injury from traffic crashes continue to be among the most serious public...

Skiing and Snowboarding Accidents

Each winter, millions of people hit the slopes on their skis and snowboards in search of excitement and adventure. And although most recreational skiers and snowboarders are aware that these sports can be dangerous, most do not recognize the extent of the inherent dangers involved. Although you take precautions to minimize the chance of being involved in a skiing or snowboarding accident, unfortunately you depend on the conduct of others on the slope. The inconsiderate, reckless, and even negligent behavior of other skiers and snowboarders is a major contributor to skiing and snowboarding accidents. However, there are numerous other threats on the...

How Airbags Work, And How They Can Fail

Millions of the safety devices have turned deadly. It's been a brutal year for motorists and for an industry safeguard that was, until now, seen as an unmitigated lifesaver. Last spring, several automakers began recalling vehicles because their airbag supplier, Takata Corp., had shipped bags with botched inflators. It turns out the inflators can send shrapnel spewing through a cabin with such force that they leave victims with what police have said look like gunshot and stab wounds. (In one case, cops actually started a homicide investigation.) Global giants like Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Mazda, BMW, Subaru, and Pontiac were forced to recall 19...

More Women are Dying While Cycling in Cities and Urban Environments

Among urban cycling infrastructure experts, conventional wisdom holds that when more women are biking, a city has built a successful cycling network. In too many American cities, though, a gruesome corollary to this rule is becoming apparent: When a city builds infrastructure that creates the illusion but not the reality of cycling safety, more women will die. Urban cycling has long been mostly a male activity. As Evan Friss writes in a new history of cycling in New York City, the bike messengers who helped define the city’s 1980s streets were virtually all men. Today’s food delivery cyclists are predominantly male....

Lawsuit Filed Against Top E-cigarette Maker Juul

An Illinois teenager who fell ill with a lung disease after vaping for over a year sued a leading e-cigarette maker on Friday, accusing it of deliberately marketing to young people and sending the message that vaping is cool. Attorneys filed a lawsuit in Lake County Circuit Court on behalf of 18-year-old Adam Hergenreder, who was hospitalized at the end of August for about a week after complaining of nausea and labored breathing. The 85-page suit argued Juul Labs conveyed in advertisements and through social media campaigns that kids could boost their social status by vaping. It also said Juul never fully disclose their...
