Car accidents can take lives in just seconds. If you've been in a crash, you know that from the moment it happens, every second counts. Head injuries, broken bones, crushing wounds and other medical emergencies need treatment.
Living on after the wrongful death of a loved one can be difficult for you and your family. You may have just lost a mother, father, sister, brother or spouse; you could have lost a child or an aunt or uncle. The feelings you have right now are likely to be overwhelming, but you still need to consider if you want to discuss a wrongful death claim with your attorney. These claims can be limited with the statute of limitations, so if you don't step forward quickly, you could lose the right to seek compensation for the loss you've suffered.
Often, when you think about animal bites, you probably think of dogs attacking people or larger animals getting violent. Littler animals like rats or pet mice don't cause too much concern, and when you think of the family cat, you probably think about scratches first and foremost. You might consider speaking to your attorney if you're attacked by a cat, though, because they can cause more harm then you may think.
If you're someone who often drives, then you know that drivers sometimes make mistakes that put your life in danger. Negligence, like being distracted when driving or failing to use lighting at dusk, can make an otherwise safe driver deadly to those on the road. When you're struck, you have to be treated for injuries. In that situation, you and your attorney have to work together to get compensation for the impact the injury has on your life.
