Can a brain injury impact your sense of smell?

Depending on the type of brain injury you suffer from, it can have all manner of negative impacts on your health and your life. Some people struggle with their memory, their mobility and their emotional state. Even within these common areas, the specific issues someone suffers can vary dramatically from person to person.

Personality traits and dangerous driving habits

Some people seem to have dangerous driving habits that they just cannot shake. They make the same mistakes and take the same chances over and over again. If you have to ride with them or drive around them, you feel like an accident is simply bound to happen at some point.

Falling asleep at the wheel? These tips can help

Have you ever nodded off behind the wheel? If you have, you know how frightening it can be. In most cases, it just lasts for a second. But, as your eyes snap back open and you realize you almost fell asleep, adrenaline surges through your body. You know how close you were to a car accident.

Personal injury cases: What kinds of damages can you pursue?

Sometimes, an accident is just an accident. It's nobody's fault, and you just got hurt. Other times, the accident happens due to the fault of another party. Perhaps a negligent driver failed to follow the rules of the road and hit you while you were a pedestrian. Maybe a food manufacturer didn't keep its premises clean, and the food you bought was dangerously contaminated. A lot of things can go wrong that cause you to get hurt, and when another party is to blame, you might be able to pursue financial damages in court.

3 things you should know about child bicycle versus car accidents

When an adult is riding a bicycle, he or she is expected to obey all traffic laws and ride responsibly to avoid getting struck by a car. When a child is riding a bicycle, the rules are a little bit different, which is why -- in some cases -- a child might be able to prevail in a personal injury claim, even if he or she was technically at fault for a collision involving an automobile.

Can I sue if I get bitten by a horse?

No one ever expects to get bitten by a horse. They usually assume that horses are more likely to kick an unsuspecting victim. In fact, bites, kicks and tramplings can happen when someone is near a horse -- and these incidents are likely to result in devastating consequences for the victim. The question is, when a horse attacks an unsuspecting victim, is the owner of the animal responsible?

Lifesaving tips for pedestrians

If you went for a walk 200 years ago, you wouldn't have to worry about getting hit by a car. Perhaps you'd be at risk of bumping up against another pedestrian or getting trampled by a horse, but even if that were to happen your chances of surviving would be infinitely higher than if you were involved in an auto accident. Unfortunately, the threat of being seriously hurt by an automobile is one of the many prices we pay to live in modern society.
