With this in mind, it’s important to know more about your rights and what happens after a dog bite.

Being involved in a car accident is stressful enough, even when the two parties exchange insurance information. Hit and run accidents are somewhat more common than you could think. Evidence suggests the number of hit and run incidents are rising. As per a recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the amount of fatal crashes from hit and runs is on the rise. In 2011, the last year the NHSTA gathered data, the number rose to almost 1500. Overall, crashes decreased by 2006 to 2011, but deadly hit and runs improved by nearly 14%. In some places of the nation, hit and runs are more prevalent than others. For instance, in certain regions of California, around half of all recorded accidents involve a driver who fled the scene. I’VE BEEN IN A HIT AND RUN? NOW WHAT? Usually,…

Many kids and their parents are busily making adjustments to their costumes for Halloween and carving pumpkins since candy-filled Halloween is just around the corner.  While Halloween may be a lot of fun for children and adults, parents may mitigate the possible security risk, including those posed by scary clowns, with a few straightforward precautions.  Scary clowns come out in force at this time of year and can cause an array of incidents resulting in serious injury. Last Halloween, the White House held a briefing in which the creepy clown epidemic was acknowledged as a problem.  In the press briefing, the public had been advised that local law enforcement agencies had contacted the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI for assistance in responding to the tide of creepy clown sightings that have led to over a dozen arrests.  This…
