The Dangers Of Walking While Distracted

Residents in and around the Louisville area have likely heard about the dangerous driving behavior known as distracted driving. Annually, drivers who are busy texting on cellphones, tuning the radio and talking to passengers are responsible for causing traffic accidents in which thousands of drivers and passengers are injured and killed. It turns out that it's not only drivers who are plagued by these types of distractions, as a growing number of pedestrian accidents are being attributed to pedestrians who walk down sidewalks and into streets with their eyes cast down.

Bicycle-car collisions lead to fatalities in Indiana

Bicycling is not only an enjoyable pastime for adults and children alike, but also a healthy and convenient way to travel for many Hoosiers. Additionally, according to studies, it is increasingly common, especially for commuting. Unfortunately, though, despite efforts at safety precautions, bicyclists are still at risk for dangerous bicycle accidents.

The importance of legal help after bicycle accidents

A growing number of Hoosiers across Indiana are realizing the benefits of riding bicycles to get back and forth. Not only is it a great method of exercise, but it is also a smart decision in an attempt to save money on gas prices. In addition, it is beneficial for the environment. Amid all of those known benefits, there are inherent risks of bicycle riding. This applies to everyone, even those who make certain that they are easily visible and take all the proper precautions to ensure safety. When there is a bicycle accident, the rider is exceedingly vulnerable to being severely injured and dying. With that in mind, it is imperative to know what to do after a bike crash.

What happens after a commercial property slip-and-fall accident?

Under the theory of premises liability, a property owner may be legally liable for a Hoosier's injuries following a slip-and-fall accident on their property. This applies not only to residential property owners, but also to commercial property owners, such as those who own grocery stores or other retail stores.
