What should a person do after suffering a dog bite?

As St. Peters residents get out and about during these last days of summer, potential danger and injury may be the last things on their minds. But, it can be a very wise thing indeed to be ready for these situations so they don't catch a person completely off guard. This blog post will describe what a person should do if they, or a loved one, suffers a dog bite.

Apparent distracted driver injures Missouri police officer

Distracted driving is an ongoing problem in Missouri and across the nation. The issue has become so troubling that legislators and law enforcement are eagerly seeking strategies to put a stop to it and hammer home the dangers to drivers so they stop doing it. Unfortunately, it continues. Along with it come accidents with injuries and fatalities. No one is immune from an auto accident and all have the right to be compensated after a crash. That includes law enforcement officers who are hurt in a distracted driving accident. Having legal assistance is one of the most important factors in pursuing a case.

Nursing home abuse and other violations plague Missouri facility

Family members in Missouri who make the difficult decision to place an elderly or ill loved one in a nursing home do so after serious thought and consideration. Determining if it is the right step, which facility will give the best care and whether there are concerns to address are all part of the process. When there is a belief that a loved one living in a facility is being mistreated or there is clear evidence of it, families are warranted in taking the necessary steps to consider a legal filing to be compensated.

Research shows motor vehicle accidents spike in August

Missouri drivers who take to the road are unlikely to think about statistics of when it is the most dangerous time to be a motorist. There are certain times of day when common sense indicates it might be riskier than others, but these beliefs tend to be disproven by facts. One example is the frequency of motor vehicle crashes tending to spike in August. People might raise an eyebrow at the information, but researchers from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety say that August is the month one is most likely to be in a fatal car accident.

3 reasons you are likely drunker than you think

Going out, drinking a few drinks and having fun is enjoyable. Whether you are unwinding with a beer after a long day at work or sipping cocktails to celebrate a special event, you may or may not intend to get fully drunk. Regardless of whether it is your intention, though, there is a good chance you will end up at least tipsy. If your blood alcohol level exceeds the legal limit, you need to get a driver. 

Mothers' injuries and wrongful death during birth rising in U.S.

Missourians who are preparing for the birth of a child will generally expect that the United States is the place to be to have a safe delivery, and they will not need to worry about injury or death to the child or mother. Since the U.S. is viewed as having state of the art medicine, this is an understandable belief. However, troubling research by USA Today says that among developed nations in the world, the U.S. is the riskiest nation to have a baby. This should be a concern to everyone, and those who have had a baby and experienced complications that caused injury or death should be aware of their right to seek compensation in a legal filing.
