Driving with tunnel vision

On the road, there are all sorts of reasons why drivers can pose a serious threat to their own safety and the safety of everyone else. Alcohol intoxication, sleepiness and the use of a phone are just some of the ways in which drivers exhibit careless and reckless behavior. However, some people may have an increased chance of causing an accident due to vision issues, such as those who have tunnel vision. Tunnel vision can be especially dangerous because it involves the loss of peripheral vision, which can be vital when it comes to avoiding an accident and being aware of hazards on the road.

What is an attractive nuisance?

Your worst nightmare as a parent may be to have your child ignore your warnings about avoiding dangerous situations and suffering a serious injury or even death because of it. Yet how can you blame them; they are kids, after all, and they lack the knowledge and experience to discern what might be dangerous and what is not. A swimming pool, a drainage canal or an abandoned building may seem to them to be exciting attractions, when you know that they can potentially cause serious injuries if kids are allowed to play in such areas unsupervised. 

Can a business owner face personal liability for negligence?

Anyone who has ever made a major purchase on credit, signed onto a mortgage or dealt with a service company knows what "breach of contract" is all about. If either party fails to live up to the terms and provisions of the contract (either in letter or spirit), the other party may seek restitution through the courts. Compensation may include more than just the dollar value of the financial losses, but may incorporate damages for future financial losses, legal fees, pain and suffering for injuries/death and under specific circumstances, even punitive damages.

Looking at office-related injuries

When people think of work-related injuries, they may picture people who are hurt while working in a dangerous occupation. For example, they may envision an injury that occurs on a construction site. However, it is important for people employed in all fields to keep in mind that although many jobs may seem relatively safe and free from the risk of suffering a workplace injury, various hazards may be present. For example, someone employed in an office may be hurt after tripping on a cord, falling on a wet surface or some other type of accident.

Distracted by your phone in the car? Try this safety feature.

Cell phones provide users with any number of possible distractions throughout the day. These may be welcome distractions while sitting in a waiting room or standing in line at the grocery store, but not while behind the wheel of a car. Distracted driving accidents happen far too frequently because drivers can’t look away or put down a device.

Paying child support after losing a job

Many different challenges may arise for non-custodial parents, from those involving child custody and visitation to problems with a former partner. However, child support issues can be especially complex and they may affect parents in different ways. For example, some parents may be unable to pay child support as a result of financial hardships, while others may purposely withhold payments because they are upset. Sometimes, non-custodial parents simply cannot pay what they owe because of a major change in their lives, such as the loss of a job that they were counting on.
