Even small points matter in personal injury claims

In our previous blog post, we discussed a case that involved a young boy who was injured on an escalator. If you recall, his parents have opted to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the shoes the boy was wearing, as well as against the resort where the incident occurred. That case brings up one important consideration about personal injury claims -- there can often be more than one party that is held liable for the injuries.

When the bite is worse than the bark

Look down a New York City sidewalk these days and you'll notice more dogs than ever being walked by owners or dog walkers. Man's best friends are famous for the companionship they offer to their owners, but dogs by nature like to chew, and biting is an outgrowth of that. An unfortunate consequence of this popularity of dogs and their nature is that millions of people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States.

Shoe manufacturer and resort sued for escalator injury

Escalator safety is something that any business that has them installed must take seriously. There are several different things that can happen that can cause a person who is using an escalator to become injured. One of these is if something gets stuck in one of the escalator components. That is what happened to a 2-year-old boy who was visiting a Hilton hotel with his family.

Inadequate security can lead to injurious incident

Security is a crucial protection for people who are going to some events. When event coordinators are planning these events, they have a duty to make sure that the security is paramount. They have a duty to ensure that the people who attend the event, whether it is a massive sale or a concert, will remain safe. When proper security isn't in place, people who attend the event are at risk of being injured.

What factors matter when planning security for events?

When people go to a special event, such as a concert or even a highly anticipated sale, they expect to remain safe. One way that this can happen is if the event organizers plan to have adequate security at the event. Failing to have adequate security can mean that attendees suffer injuries.

What stops an elevator from plunging to the ground?

When get into an elevator, you are putting your trust in a system of components. As long as these components are working properly, you won't have any problems. If a component fails, you might end up having an elevator accident.
