Back to the Basics: Car Accident Injuries
From a full-on collision to a mere bump in the bumper, drivers and passengers alike can suffer serious injuries in car accidents. Many involved in accidents, however, may not feel or notice a particular injury, either because it is not as apparent, or the adrenaline from the scare of an accident is so high that they do not realize the injury exists. It may only be later that symptoms begin to manifest themselves, or that the person notices these symptoms.Back to the Basics: Who Is At Fault In a Car Accident?

Negligence is a measure of the lack of care on the part of drivers in the operation of their vehicles and obeying traffic laws.Q and A on Dog Bite Attacks
If you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog, treat the area immediately.
