What Is Personal Injury Law?
A personal injury is any injury that was caused by someone elses wrongful actions. Those wrongful actions can be crimes, but more often, they are actions caused by negligence, a legal term for failure to take reasonable actions to protect others from foreseeable harm. For example, a driver who causes an accident by playing with a cell phone would be guilty of negligence. So would a school that fails to provide enough emergency exits to safely evacuate during a fire. Personal injuries include physical injuries, the physical pain and emotional trauma they cause, and all of the financial costs of the wrongful behavior.

When and How to Defend Yourself Legally
There's a law called The Castle Doctrine and it dates back to Old English Common Law that says a man and a woman's home is their castle and they have every right to defend themselves and to defend their home against criminal intrusion. What that means in Indiana is that if somebody is breaking into your home you do not have to flee before you start defending yourself. You can use force, you can even use deadly force, if you reasonably believe that harm is going to come to you or a family member.

How Many Accidents Are Due To Distracted Driving?
Q: How many accidents are caused by distracted driving? A: It's impossible to say for sure, because police agencies don't always report distractions. However, one federal study found that distractions contributed to 22 percent of all crashes and near-crashes. Police data shows that 16 percent of fatal crashes and 21 percent of injury crashes involved distractions. It also shows that the proportion of fatal crashes caused by distracted driving grew from 8 percent in 2004 to 11 percent in 2008.

Maritime Law - StateLawTV.com
During the dawn of the industrial age, Congress recognized that those who work at sea are at special risk of injuries at work. In response, it passed the Jones Act, which allows injured workers, or the families of workers killed on the job, to sue an employer at fault for the injury. It applies to all maritime workers who spend 30 percent or more of their time at sea, including oil platform workers. Unlike conventional workers compensation, Jones Act lawsuits require workers to prove fault for their injuries. But they are also eligible to claim damages for their physical pain and emotional suffering, in addition to the full costs of medical treatment and time off work.

Aviation Disasters - StateLawTV.com
Studies show airplanes and helicopters crash far less often than cars. But when they do, dozens of lives can be lost in an instant. In fact, numbers from the National Transportation Safety Board show that the number-one cause of aviation accidents is human error. That includes accidents with commercial airplanes as well as the more common crashes involving small aircraft. In all of those cases, better decision-making could have saved lives. If youve lost someone to this type of negligence, you should talk to an aviation lawyer as soon as possible about holding those decision-makers legally responsible for their actions.

Are Hands-Free Phones Safer?
Q: Is it safer to use a hands-free cell phone? A: Research suggests that it is not. While hands-free devices do help drivers keep their eyes on the road, talking on the phone can still cause a mental distraction. A 2001 University of Utah study found that drivers using a cell phone missed twice as many traffic lights as drivers without a phone. That was true regardless of whether they were using a hands-free device. The study concluded that phone conversations distract drivers in ways that passive listening does not.

Motorcycle Accidents - StateLawTV.com
Unfortunately, its true that motorcycle accidents are deadly. Federal statistics show that motorcyclists are 35 times more likely than drivers to die in a crash. However, statistics also show that most motorcycle crashes involving another vehicle are the other drivers fault, mainly because other drivers fail to see motorcycles until its too late. The results can be a death, brain damage or other serious injury. In addition to being devastating to the victims and their families, these can be extremely expensive to treat. If this happened to you because someone else wasnt watching the road, you can hold that person legally responsible with a lawsuit.

Talking on the Phone vs. Talking to a Passenger
Q: Is talking on the phone really less safe than talking to a passenger? A: Probably. The University of Utah conducted a study in 2008 that compared performance of drivers talking to a passenger and drivers talking on a hands-free phone. It found that drivers on the phone were more likely to drift, miss their exit and tailgate. Passengers were more likely to slow the conversation when driving was difficult, or talk about traffic, suggesting that they were helping drivers keep their minds on driving.

Driving Drunk - The Field Sobriety Test Vs The Chemical Test
Drunk Driving is the most preventable crime that there is. So, don't do it. If you're going to drink, take a cab. It is dangerous for you and others, and it's also very expensive for all sorts of reasons. When you get arrested for drunk driving, usually a field sobriety test is performed. You don't have to take the test but if you think you're close to the limit you might want to take it because you might be under and the test would prove it. The test that you have to take is the chemical test that's administered once you get back to the police station and if you don't take that test then it's an automatic 1 year driver's license suspension. There are many reasons to hire a good lawyer but the primary one is that the stakes are very high. You don't want it on your record as it affects some people's employment.

Like all manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies are legally required not to offer us products that are dangerous, or lack sufficient warning about the potential dangers of using them correctly. Thats especially true when they know about the problem, but cover it up or even commission tainted studies to make the drug seem safer. In a dangerous drug lawsuit, you and victims like you can join together to hold these companies responsible.
