Prioritize boating safety to prevent accidents

National Safe Boating Week is May 21-27, 2016, serving as a reminder to all recreational boaters to take precautions to prevent boating accidents this summer. People who plan to operate watercraft or ride along as a passenger should be aware of basic important safety measures that could mean the difference between life and death. 

Hundreds of people die every year in bike accidents

While the data we are about to discuss is a couple of years old, it still illustrates the risk that bicyclists face out on the road. Data from 2013 shows that 743 people were killed in bicycle vs. motor vehicle accidents, and another 48,000 people suffered injuries in those accidents. Both of those figures are up from 2001, even though they represent a decline from 2011. As you can see, bike accident statistics fluctuate a bit even though they follow a general trend.

The Promise of Self-Driving Cars

According to a report from the consulting firm KPMG LLP, the automobile landscape is poised for radical change over the next 25 years as autonomous vehicles become increasingly prevalent. We are already seeing the early phases of this transition as manufacturers introduce partial driver substitution technologies such as autonomous breaking. This video shows this technology at work preventing an accident while a father drops his daughter off at school.

Unregulated obstacle races can breed injury

Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, Spartan Race -- these are popular obstacle-course events that lure participants with the exhilarating promise of mud pits, fire hurdles, long-distance runs, potential electrical shocks and other obstacles that test physical stamina, not to mention provide lively opportunity for camaraderie and Instagram fodder. 

Stay out of the 'no zone'

It's not always possible to protect yourself from every danger on the road. But when you're sharing the highway with big-rig trucks, staying visible to truck drivers can help you avoid potentially catastrophic accidents.

Amusement park injuries are anything but fun

Many of the nation's amusement parks that have been closed for the winter will be reopening in coming weeks and months. These parks are designed for fun, and provide an option for a carefree day away from normal responsibilities. But negligence on the part of park staff, maintenance crews, ride designers or security detail can turn a day of fun into a long-term nightmare when visitors get injured on rides. 

Independent contractor doctors limit hospital liability

If you or a loved one were to be injured by the medical negligence of a doctor in a hospital setting, your resulting medical malpractice lawsuit would likely seek to collect compensation not just from the doctor, but from the hospital itself.
