Walking through parking lots may be riskier than busy streets

Maybe you rarely travel anywhere on foot, particularly if your Indiana community lacks decent sidewalks and intersections with well-marked crosswalks. However, most people find walking across parking lots a part of everyday life. At the Doane Law Office, LLC, we understand that these short trips between the vehicle and the final destination can at times be even more dangerous than walking across town.

When a dog bites your child

Your family is invited to a backyard barbecue by a co-worker, and while you are there, her dog bites your three-year-old's face. Naturally, your first response is to take your child to the emergency room for treatment. The dog was up-to-date on his vaccinations, so there is no need for rabies shots, but your little one leaves the hospital with several stitches in the cheek and lip. 

What are Indiana's child restraint laws?

As a parent in Indiana, it is essential that you know and follow the state's child restraint laws whenever you take your child in a vehicle. These laws are established to ensure your child is as safe as possible in the event of an accident. Furthermore, these laws are pretty much universal throughout the country, so they will also help you be compliant if you leave the state. 

How many injured bicyclists do emergency rooms treat?

Each year, many bicyclists are injured or even killed when they are struck by vehicles. Some bicyclists are injured off the road, of course, but many are hit by negligent drivers who are either drunk, distracted, going over the speed limit, or simply ignoring their responsibilities behind the wheel. An injured bicyclist may struggle in many ways following a collision, whether they are immobilized for a period of time or the rest of their life, struggle paying hospital costs, or have emotional trauma from the incident. As a result, it is important for bicyclists and drivers to focus on preventing these accidents and understand the magnitude of this problem.

How can you safely approach a stray dog?

You are enjoying an early morning run at the park in Indiana when out of nowhere, a dog appears. Instinctively, you are probably prone to panic and startle, but as you get closer, it appears as though maybe the dog is lost. Curious as to if you can help the dog find its owner, you want to take a look at his collar. Preparing for these kinds of situations is important to help you stay safe and know how to effectively approach a stray dog without compromising your well-being.
