Pedestrian safety: 3 things you need to know

Walking to work or school should not be dangerous, but in this day and age it can sometimes be hazardous to be a pedestrian. In June, a Dallas man was hit twice while walking along the side of the Dallas North Tollway. The circumstances surrounding the accident are not fully known, however — only one of the two drivers who hit him stopped to render aid.

What can you do to help protect yourself while walking, biking or jogging? Let's take a look at three things you can do to help protect yourself — and your children — while walking near traffic.

Key Differences Between Truck Accidents and Car Accidents

An accident is an accident, no matter which way you slice it - or is it? Unfortunately, there are key differences between a semi truck accident and a regular auto accident. Here are some of the key factors to take into account before you get into your next auto accident.

3 Ways To Avoid Distracted Driving

While drunk driving is a crime that often gets a lot of attention, distracted driving is just as dangerous and is likely becoming even more common. There are laws being put into place to penalize distracted drivers for their behaviors, but in many cases, tragedies have to occur before these legislative measures are ever passed. We don't always have control over what others do on the road, but by being aware and by avoiding distracted driving behaviors ourselves, we are more likely to avoid devastating car crashes. Below are just a few ways you can make a habit of cutting out these behaviors and promoting the safety of others while behind the wheel.

Dog Bite Claim FAQs: What To Do When Their Bark ISN'T Worse Than Their Bite

The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 4.5 million dog bites occur every year in the United States. While not every dog bite will warrant a personal injury claim, it's important that you educate yourself on some points about these cases. You'll also want to contact reliable personal injury lawyers in your area to find out whether the specific circumstances of your animal bite incident will be enough to file a case. We'll take a look at some FAQs on cases involving dog bites below.

3 Places Most Likely to Make You Spill

Falling accidents account for nearly one million people taking a trip to the emergency room each year. In fact, over 20% of slip and fall cases make the victim miss a significant amount of work - over a month in some cases. To avoid injury, here are the types of slippery floors and dangerous conditions you need to look out for to prevent an accident.

Premise Liability and Trespassing: An FAQ

The most basic definition for the legal concept of premise liability (also called premises liability) is that it's when a property owner is liable for unsafe conditions on their property that cause injury to someone else. It is generally used in personal injury cases. A complication that can come up in a premise liability case is when it's unclear whether the injured party was actually in the wrong by illegally being on the property where they were injured. Here are some frequently asked questions to clear up any confusion about premise liability and trespassing.

Preventing Trucking Accidents: 5 Ways For Drivers To Stay Safe

Any kind of vehicle collision can be horrific, but the stakes are much higher with trucking accidents. Tractor trailer crashes are often particularly devastating for all drivers involved simply due to the sheer size of these vehicles and the speeds at which they travel. While some accidents are the result of unavoidable issues, there are many that can be prevented just by staying aware and following some simple rules on the road. To impede accident and injury from semi truck accidents, automobile drivers should follow these guidelines.

Driving With A Phone? Here's Your Penalty

We all know not to use our cell phones while driving, but it's still tempting to pull it out at a red light to text your friend. Although it doesn't seem like an issue while your car isn't in motion, this still counts as a type of distracted driving that can lead to some serious repercussion; swerving on the road or failing to stop in time can mean potential injuries.

DUI Dos and Don'ts: Tips To Follow When You're Pulled Over For Drunk Driving

Every year, 1.5 million people are arrested for drunk driving. But just because these cases are common doesn't mean they aren't a big deal. The damage caused by drunk driving can make for a huge financial and emotional burden for you and for your family, especially if you or another driver become seriously injured as a result. It's easy for drunk drivers who are pulled over for suspected DUIs to accidentally incriminate themselves or make matters worse by being uncooperative. These tips will help you stay calm and informed about the best practices in these situations.
