Personal injury legal protections for pedestrians

Pedestrian accidents can cause catastrophic injuries and harm because of the unprotected nature of pedestrian-accident victims who are vulnerable to inattentive and careless drivers on the roadways.

During 2012, 76,000 pedestrians were injured in pedestrian accidents.

Unqualified truck drivers may be liable to injured victims

Help following a boating accident

Boating accidents can cause serious injuries and harm and put an end to the fun.

Understanding the dangers posed by distracted driving

Distracted driving includes a variety of activities that take the driver's eyes of the road, hands off the wheel or mind off the road. There are three primary categories of distracted driving including visual distraction or when the driver's eyes are removed from the roadway; manual distraction or when the driver's hands are removed from the steering wheel; and cognitive distraction or when the driver's focus and attention is removed from the roadway and the task at hand of driving.
