How to protect yourself when walking in a parking lot

You don't think much of it, but you probably walk through parking lots almost every day of your life. This happens after you park your car at work in the morning (and when you leave). It also happens when you visit the grocery store or shopping mall. And that's just the start.

What are common injuries that a child suffers in car crashes?

Car crashes impact children and adults in different ways. Kids often get hurt in different and often more severe ways than their elders. Back, chest, organ or head injuries and concussions are the most common ailments that children suffer in crashes.

What dangers do motorcyclists face on the road?

Data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that at least 80% of motorcycle crashes result in someone either getting hurt or killed. That same data reveals that motorcyclists often end up being ejected in these types of crashes. Motorbike riders face many other dangers, though.

Abuse and neglect can occur at assisted living facilities

People typically associate abuse and neglect of seniors with nursing homes rather than assisted living facilities. After all, people in assisted living are typically healthier and more self-reliant than those in nursing homes. They often have their own apartments and can be just about as independent as those living on their own. With our senior population growing and people living longer, the U.S. has nearly twice as many assisted living facilities as nursing homes.

Prepare for summer driving in Michigan to avoid accident injuries

Most of us living and working in Rochester are usually glad to welcome summertime weather. Most of the time, warmer weather makes driving much easier. The roads are clear of ice and snow, which should mean safer motoring, but it is still important to practice caution when driving.

Have higher speed limits made Michigan freeways more dangerous?

It's been three years since Michigan raised the maximum speed limit on more than 1,500 miles of our freeways. Has it made them less safe? Despite the fact that there has been an increase in the number of crashes, injuries and fatalities, experts say the jury's still out.

Beware of social media during your personal injury claim

Maintaining a presence on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram is a fun way to spend your time. However, if you are seeking financial compensation through a personal injury claim in Michigan, your social media use could hurt your case.

Beware: Speed does kill!

Lawmakers raised the speed limit along many of Michigan's rural highways in 2017. Motorists who were once only able to lawfully travel 70 miles per hour (mph) along these roadways can now drive up to 75 mph. Injury crashes have soared since the speed limit has been increased along certain portions of U.S. Highways 127, 31, 10 and 127 and Interstates 75 and 69.
