When an animal attacks and causes you injury, who is to blame?

You, like many other people in Indiana, may love animals and even own a pet. However, there is nothing that can adequately prepare you for the shock and pain of experiencing an attack from an animal. Animal bites and attacks from pets owned by other people can not only be the cause of great mental and emotional suffering, they can cause great physical damage as well.

Holding drunk drivers accountable for accidents and injuries

Drunk driving can cause great harm to many innocent people. In fact, you may be dealing with injuries suffered in an accident caused by an alcohol-impaired driver. If you suffered because of a drunk driver, it is possible to hold these individuals accountable for their actions and seek financial compensation.

Pit bulls are not the only vicious dog breed

Pets are often part of the family, and you may have friends who refer to their animals as their children. Some may even include their dogs or cats in family portraits or throw parties for their pets' birthdays. Perhaps you are one of those whose emotional attachment to your pet runs deep.

Many truck driver errors are blamed on fatigue

Researchers are finding out more about how much our bodies need sleep and what happens to us when we don't get enough of it. Many sources now equate driving while you are drowsy with driving drunk. This is how dangerous researchers now know it is to get behind the wheel when fatigued.

An unfocused mind makes for a distracted driver

While cell phones are often associated with the problem of distracted driving, they are not always to blame. There are many different types of distraction, and all of them pose a threat to Indiana drivers and passengers. In fact, one of the most dangerous types -- cognitive distraction -- can be quite deceptive, as it involves the driver's mind, not necessarily physical actions. 

Do you consider yourself a defensive driver?

Traveling on the roadways can sometimes cause apprehension for many drivers. Because you cannot always predict what actions another traveler may take, you could easily find yourself involved in a serious accident that results in your injury. Of course, you may want to do your part to avoid such incidents if possible in hopes of avoiding such injury to yourself and your family.

You may be able to secure disability benefits for arthritis

When a medical condition keeps you from working and effectively providing for your family, it can cause you to feel both helpless and hopeless. You may find yourself in this situation if you have a serious case of arthritis, yet you may be able to secure disability benefits.

Your legal rights after a truck accident

What might start out as a relatively ordinary commute to the job or to the grocery store one day may end up being one of the most expensive drives you will ever take if you end up in a trucking accident. Due to the heavy weight and large size of a semi-truck, an accident involving such a truck can easily be more serious than one involving another passenger car. The accident can be costly from a physical, financial and emotional standpoint.

Take a bite out of negligence following an animal bite

Each year, thousands of animal bites take place in the United States, mostly involving dogs. When you have suffered a dog bite, your first priority naturally is to pursue medical attention right away. After all, failure to undergo treatment may lead to an infection or even death if the dog had a disease.

Protecting your interests after the wrongful death of a loved one

Losing a loved one in an accident is never easy, but it can be particularly painful to know that his or her death was preventable and unnecessary. When you are dealing with the wrongful death of a loved one, not only are you facing excruciating emotional pain, you are likely also dealing with the financial fallout that often accompanies an unexpected death.
