Motorcycle accident may lead to wrongful death suit

Motorcycle riders are undoubtedly the most vulnerable drivers on the road. They do not have the cushion of a car around them, meaning they potentially stand the greatest risk of getting hurt in an accident. Having negligent or reckless drivers in the vicinity increases the likelihood that, if something does go wrong and a motorcycle accident occurs, the motorcycle rider will most likely endure serious, if not fatal, injuries.

Lawsuit alleges medical device used for leg fractures is defective

There is perhaps nothing more frightening for people than the prospect of having to undergo some type of surgical procedure to implant a medical device.

Former high school athletic director, coach dead in car accident

Many parents tell their children when they're first learning to drive that worry about safety is not necessarily over what their children are doing, but rather about the potential negligent and reckless drivers who may be sharing the road with the young and relatively inexperienced drivers. What holds true over the course of a man's life is that he can only ever control what his reactions are when behind the wheel. He has absolutely no control over whether other drivers choose to drink and drive, drive distracted or simply make reckless choices when getting from point A to point B. Negligent and reckless drivers make decisions that lead to serious injuries and sometimes even death as the result of a car accident.
