Many residential slip-and-fall accidents are the result of homeowners’ negligence. If a property isn’t adequately maintained, there’s a chance guests will slip, trip, or fall and injure themselves. Some of the most common residential accidents include:

  • Stair Accidents. Factors like foreign substances on the stairs, missing or broken handrails, shallow or varying step heights, or broken wood can easily result in someone falling or slipping on a staircase. Whether the accident happens inside or outside, the injuries can be severe. Spinal cord injuries are possible, especially if the staircase is big.
  • Defective Flooring. Rugs, carpets, and floors can also lead to a slip-and-fall accident. Slippery area rugs, frayed carpets, and improperly laid floor tiles are dangerous.
  • Slipping on Ice or Snow. Homeowners are responsible for ensuring the condition of the outside of their home is just as safe as the inside. While this may not seem like a big deal, snow in the winter must keep off sidewalks and paths need to be clear and ice-free.
  • Broken Sidewalks. Homeowners are supposed to keep their walkways in a reasonable state of repair. Determining liability if someone falls can be challenging because the municipality could be to blame.

While schools are supposed to provide safe, fun learning environments where children can grow mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally, accidents happen. Sometimes, however, those accidents are the direct result of negligence. For example, according to the CDC two-thirds of all playground-related traumatic brain injuries occur at school on equipment like monkey bars or swings.

If your child was injured at school, you may have the right to take legal action against the institution. In some situations, the district can be held accountable for injuries that should have been prevented.

Cooking products are constantly evolving. This year, you might have bought tear-free onion cutting goggles, a heat conducting butter knife, or a snap on pasta strainer in the name of efficiency. While those products are probably harmless, some of the more complex cooking products might be more dangerous.

Some of the bigger products on the market are unsafe when not used properly. Even though pressure cookers, air fryers, and immersion cookers are on trend this year, that doesn’t mean that they are completely safe or easy to use. Here are the most dangerous cooking products on the market this year.

What Is the Rescue Doctrine and When Does it Apply?

An emergency scenario can erupt at any moment. In a situation where another person’s life is in danger, it’s human nature to want to save them, even if it means you’ll get injured in the process. When that happens, you’re protected by the Rescue Doctrine.

The Rescue Doctrine states that when someone else causes a crisis, if you attempt to save a person in danger and receive injuries or die, the person who caused the danger is liable for your injuries or death. Since that person is liable, you can receive compensation for any injuries that you received while voluntarily trying to save another person from serious injury or death.
