How to stay safe on your motorcycle this summer

With summer finally here, you will likely be riding your motorcycle often. Cruising on your bike is both incredibly satisfying and dangerous. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety - Highway Loss Data Institute, the summer months are responsible for the majority of motorcycle fatalities, with July having the highest number of deaths.

However, there are things you can do to lower the risk of accident and injury. You can make yourself and your bike more visible, wear proper protective gear and learn what to do when you still get hurt.

3 ways to document car accident injuries for a stronger claim

Documenting your injuries after a car accident is a crucial aspect of pursuing a personal injury case. Whether you are bringing a lawsuit or negotiating an insurance settlement, the more evidence you have of your position, the better your chances of receiving adequate compensation.

Do not overlook the importance of getting medical attention and documenting all expenses. Here is a guide to collecting comprehensive documentation of your car accident injuries.

Understanding the context of an aggravated crime

You may have heard reports on the news about suspects who have been charged with aggravated crimes. It is rarely clarified, though, what exactly this means. How is an aggravated assault different from or worse than a regular assault? There are several factors that determine whether charges are upgraded to aggravated, and if you are facing such charges, you should understand the reasoning. These are a few of the most important things to consider.

What are the guidelines for choosing a jury?

If you've ever been accused of committing a crime, you know how important it is to count on the system to work like it should. If a case goes to trial and you are tried before a jury of your peers, you need to know that you are getting a fair, unbiased shot at proving your innocence. The same applies if you are asked to be on the jury for a criminal or civil case. That's why understanding the jury selection process is so crucial.

Understanding auto-brewery syndrome

You may remember hearing about a New York woman who was charged with a DUI that she said was because her body created beer. Her blood alcohol level was 0.40, her speech was slurred and her eyes were bloodshot. She insisted that she had not had a drink for hours. The police took her to the hospital, because a 0.40 blood alcohol level is considered life-threatening. It was determined that the woman suffered from auto-brewery syndrome, and her case was dismissed after the judge received evidence that she suffered from a medical condition which raised her blood alcohol levels.

Protecting yourself from dog bite injuries

Postal carriers, UPS drivers, contractors and other workers who need to go onto the property of others to do their jobs face a daily risk for injuries from dog bites. So what works and doesn't work to protect yourself?

Two things that don't work are carrying treats for the dog and running away from it. Dogs are territorial, and an animal who feels threatened by you is more likely bite your hand than accept a treat. Running away from a dog will simply induce it to chase you.

Second marriages and separate property

You may have heard that the property you bring to a second marriage will still be yours in the event of a future divorce. Unfortunately, this isn't always true.

It is a general rule that assets acquired before your marriage are your separate property, while assets accumulated during your marriage are marital property and are subject to equitable division. However, there are many things that can happen during your marriage that can cause separate property to become marital property.

5 Signs Of Nursing Home Neglect Or Abuse

Neglect and abuse of seniors in nursing homes happens more often than we would like to think. Unfortunately, family members often fail to see warning signs that their loved one is not receiving proper care.

Here are five signs of nursing home neglect or abuse:

To file or not to file (for divorce)

Some people think that filing for divorce before their spouse will give an advantage. In reality it may not. Announcing your intention to divorce your spouse by having a sheriff's deputy deliver a divorce complaint could be the beginning of a long, difficult and costly divorce proceeding.

If you think a divorce is in your future, your first step should be to a consult with an attorney before you take any actions that cannot be undone.
