A recall doesn't stop you from suing for products liability

Oftentimes, when a product is shown to be dangerous or defective, a manufacturer or designer will decide to voluntarily remove it from distribution so that necessary modifications can be made.

House fires require swift, decisive action

A house fire is a terrifying experience. You may not have much time to escape once the fire starts, and you may find that the route you thought you'd be able to escape through is blocked. Sadly, it is estimated that about seven people die each day in house fires in this country.

The reality of how a dog bite can affect you -- for years

Anyone who has ever been bitten by a dog knows that the bite itself isn't the only thing that leaves a lasting impression.

As more demands are placed on the health care system, physicians and other medical providers become stressed and overworked. The extreme pressure that they're under can have a significant impact on the quality of care that they can provide their patients with.

5 spring property hazards that can cause serious injuries

With spring in full swing, many people are cleaning up after months of cold, snow and ice. Spring cleaning isn't just important to make things look nice, either. During the winter, certain safety risks can develop or get covered up and people often put off dealing with them until its warm enough to spend more time outside.

Tired drivers can cause serious crashes

Any of us can be tired on a given day. Some people, however, might be especially exhausted because they were up all night with a sick child, because they suffer from chronic insomnia or for other reasons. Some motorists end up behind the wheel of a car when they are too tired to drive safely. In some cases, they may fall asleep at the wheel or they simply have poorer driving skills than they otherwise would.
