Truck accident stats show a disconcerting trend

Semi-trucks and large trucks pose very serious risks to people out on the road. They are powerful, unwieldy vehicles that can tip over, fail to brake on time and generally do tremendous damage when they are involved in an accident. This is to say nothing of the drivers of these vehicles, who can often become distracted or fatigued by their lack of sleep, their extensive workload or just being lost in thought while on the road.

Self-driving cars won't fix every problem out on the road

One of the things that we are going to have to grapple with as a society going forward is self-driving cars. Now, we aren't saying this is the number one issue facing society right now -- but in the future, this will certainly be a significant topic that needs to be addressed in a proper and adequate way.

Gravel spilled in Tampa rollover accident

An accident last week in Tampa, Florida left a dump truck with a major problem: all of the gravel that it was carrying spilled across the road. The accident involved a truck and a van and the police are investigating the crash. Few details are available, but we know it happened just before 7 a.m. and that the dump truck fell on its side, causing the spill that sent gravel all over.

How do you prove fault in slip and fall accidents?

It may seem like a silly question, but proving fault in a slip and fall accident is not only important, but it can also be difficult. Who is to blame when you fall in a store, or at a restaurant, or in an apartment, or even at work? There are possibly many potential culprits -- or even none at all -- and you want to make sure that every possibility is investigated and checked.

The importance of legal help after a dog attack

One of the most terrifying ordeals that someone can go through is an animal attack, and for most people who have had to endure such an ordeal, this means getting attacked by a dog. Dogs are man's best friend, but if they aren't raised properly or if they live through a tough upbringing, they can become very vicious animals that have a propensity to attack others. Anti-social behavior like this will only make people feel uneasy around the animal, which can exacerbate the problem.

Retrieving evidence for divorce proceedings? There's an app for that!

Engaging in divorce proceedings can be a lengthy, frustrating experience. For those embroiled in a particularly contentious battle with a former spouse, frayed nerves can lead many people to do things they may regret months down the line. Seeking solace from a friend or an escape from stressors, these frazzled folks may engage in harmful activities just by turning on their computers and logging into social media accounts.

2013 data: Florida has most motorcycle accidents in country

Motorcyclists are inherently in a dangerous position out on the road. They ride powerful, fast vehicles that can travel as fast as cars, but that lack any of the protections provided by cars. No air bags; no seat belts; no padding or protections offered by the vehicle. Motorcyclists rely entirely on a helmet and some smaller pieces of safety gear to protect them in case of an accident. Sadly, though, when motorcyclists get into an accident, they often suffer serious or even fatal injuries.
