Two deaths result from New York sky diving incident

While a seemingly risky activity, individuals who choose to tandem sky-dive likely feel secure in their decision as they are assured they'll be linked to a qualified instructor throughout the entire experience. A fatal accident is not part of the picture. Sources say nearly half a million people tandem dive in the U.S. per year, so why not?

Falling gate injures New York child, nanny

Serious injury to a loved one is never easy to deal with. The worry and stress are sometimes unbearable. Accidents do happen, and there are times when the incident occurs through the fault of no one.

When this situation arises, premises liability laws allow for the injured party to receive compensation.

Deadly Risks of CT Scans in Children

A recent study indicates that after receiving 2 or 3 CT scans, children under 15 had triple the risk of brain cancer, as compared to the general population.

Lawsuits Trigger Johnson & Johnson to Stop Selling Pelvic Mesh

The 75,000 women who had pelvic surgery with pelvic mesh implantation last year did not know that more than half of them would be forced to have more surgery to remove the defective product because of pain, bleeding and infection. Some of these women needed up to three extra surgeries as a result of serious injuries that the FDA attributed to be caused by the surgical mesh implants, and ten percent of these women experienced erosion or exposure of the mesh within a year.

New York building collapse prompts $77,880 in fines

Accidents happen every day in New York and across the country. When the negligence of an individual or company causes death or serious personal injury to a loved one, families tend to be understandably unforgiving. Depending on the circumstances of the case, some victims or their families may be awarded compensation.

Football Helmets Ten Years and Older Deemed Unsafe

Football helmets ten years and older may be insufficient in protecting against serious brain injury, namely concussions. A bump, blow, or jolt taken directly to the head during play can cause a concussion. Any blow to the body severe enough to cause the brain and head to move rapidly will also result in concussion because the brain is twisting and bouncing within the skull. Football players are especially susceptible to concussion due to the collisions between opponents, teammates, turf, and posts that can and often do occur within games.
