Do I Have A Case For My Slip And Fall?

Do I Have A Case For My Slip And Fall?It can happen suddenly. One minute you are browsing the aisles at your local grocery store and the next, you’ve slip and hit the ground. Slip and fall accidents happen more frequently than people realize and often times can cause severe injury. In somes cases, these falls may be the fault of the property owner or manager. In those instances, you may have a case to get compensation for your injuries.

They usually happen on property or premises that are owned or maintained by someone and the property owner is held legally responsible. It is the responsibility for you, the “plaintiff” to show that the owner, the “defendant,” did not act in a reasonable manner, that is, they were negligent.

Can I Sue For A Dog Bite?When you have been bitten by a dog, the injuries can be very severe. From flesh wounds to bone fractures to even disfigurement and disability, your injuries can have a serious impact on your life. Furthermore, the costs of these injuries can add up quickly.

TBI Has Many Effects

TBI Has Many EffectsA traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can be one of the most terrifying and debilitating injuries for a person—and the people around that person—to experience. The reason for this is that the brain is the literal nerve center of the entire body, the ability to perceive sensations, think, feel, remember and even move are controlled by the brain. This means that any injury to any part of the brain can have dramatic, lifelong effects on a person’s life.

Here’s just a sample of the many ways that a serious TBI can impact the way a person lives.

Physical Impairments

The brain controls the ability of people to move and sense things. This means that a variety of different physical symptoms can manifest depending on where a TBI is sustained, and the scope of the injury. For some people, TBI may result in permanent migraine headaches when it was never an issue before. For others, however, the effects can be far more serious.

Senses, for example, can be impaired or compromised. A person may no longer see, hear, smell, taste or touch things the way they used to. In some cases, a sense... ...read full post

Automobile Recall Warning: Hyundai And Kia

Automobile Recall Warning: Hyundai And KiaAfter a massive recall of 1.7 million vehicles in 2015, Kia and Hyundai owners are facing a new issue. It turns out the fix that Hyundai and Kia implemented for the recall has created a new round of problems for car owners. After multiple complaints, an investigation from the Nation Highway Traffic And Safety Administration (NHTSA), and six reports of fire, Kia and Hyundai are recalling these vehicles again.

Why Are They Being Recalled?

Hyundai and Kia are recalling vehicles because the fix they issued during the 2015 recall presents a fire risk. The vehicles were initially recalled because manufacturing debris restricted the oil flow to connecting rod bearings. This caused the bearings in 2 and 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines to wear down and sometimes fail. This issue also put drivers at risk of engine fire. During this recall, however, some of the engine replacements were not done properly by dealers around the country. They have found that in some cases the high pressure fuel pipe was damaged, misaligned, or improperly tightened. This may lead to a fuel leak on the engine causing fires.

Why You Need To Pay Attention To Vehicle Recalls

Why You Need To Pay Attention To Vehicle RecallsThere are many things that can cause an auto accident such as bad drivers and hazardous road conditions. However, the most underrated cause of auto accidents is mechanical functions. If your brakes do not work properly, you can’t accelerate, or your car shifts out of gear, in a few short moments can lead to a catastrophic injury. This is why routine vehicle maintenance is so important. However, even the most diligent car owner who changes their fluids, belts, and chains routinely, can still experience mechanical defects because of faulty designs and manufacturing.

What Is A Vehicle Recall?

When a vehicle designer, contract manufacturer, or even a shipping company or a dealership makes a mistake and causes a mechanical malfunction of a vehicle, a recall may be issued. Recalls happen two ways. The first is a voluntary recall, which makes up the bulk of the vehicle recalls, is when a manufacturer realizes there is a flaw with the recall and notifies its customers. The second is a recall conducted by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA collects statistics about car accidents across the... ...read full post

Vehicle Recall Alerts: Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, And More

Most of the time, when we think about auto accidents, we think about bad drivers. However, thousands of accidents are caused every year by vehicle malfunctions. Sometimes these malfunctions are the fault of the vehicle manufacturer. These malfunctions can lead to manufacturers to recall vehicles. These recalls can be voluntary after the manufacturer discovers an issue, or supported by the National Highway And Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) after determining the malfunction is causing accidents. In both cases, vehicle owners need to pay attention to recalls to stay safe on the roads. Here are the most recent vehicle recalls.

Toyota And Lexus SUVs Recalled For Airbag Issues

Right on the heels of the massive Tanaka airbag recall, Toyota and Lexus SUVs are also being recalled for an airbag issue. 89,740 SUVs have been recalled because of a faulty sensor that can cause airbags to remain off when needed.
