Are you covered when you have to drop and cover?

The last week has been a reminder to all Utah residents that we need to be prepared for earthquakes. Thankfully our most recent tremors did not result in any serious injuries but it definitely puts our individual preparedness at the forefront of our minds.

How truck rest stop closures affect all motorists' safety

For truck drivers -- particularly those who travel long distances -- rest stops are places to take a break, use the restroom, get something to eat and drink, stretch their legs and even get some sleep overnight.

Now, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, some state-operated rest stops have been closed. Michigan and Pennsylvania are among those states.

Get the right help when you're hurt in a slip-and-fall incident

No one wants to think about getting hurt. Most people go through their day-to-day lives thinking about their futures and the plans that they have. They don't often consider how those plans would change if they were suddenly injured or disabled.

Injuries can happen anywhere, and when they do, your life could drastically change. While many injuries are minor, more serious incidents can result in the need for surgery, medical care, rehabilitation and other long-term treatments.

What do I need to know about Statutes of Limitation?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims varies from state to state, from case to case and from state to federal court. Failure to understand and meet these important procedural deadlines can be the cause for a case to be thrown out. It's important to consult with a personal injury attorney to help you understand and meet the required deadlines for these complicated statutes.

Crash kills 1, leaves 8 injured near Salt Lake City Airport

A car crash is sudden, and it's unexpected. Even if you have plans in place for what you'll do in a worst-case scenario, it can still catch you off-guard and turn your life upside down.

Unfortunately, car crashes do happen regularly throughout the state, and it's something that could happen to you. Sometimes, these crashes lead to multiple people being injured or people dying from their wounds.

Reckless driver causes multiple injuries, 1 death in Moab case

When a driver isn't behaving safely, they're not just putting themselves in danger. They're threatening anyone who is around their vehicle, too.

It's unfair that a single person's negligence or reckless behavior should lead to serious injuries or death, but it happens all the time. Take, for example, this case out of Moab. According to the local police chief, a local pastor, 45, was killed when a truck that was speeding and driving dangerously in the center lane entered an intersection and collided with his vehicle. A third vehicle was also struck at that time.

What is dog bite liability insurance and do you need it?

Did you know that dog bites make up nearly one-third of homeowner's insurance claims in the united states? According to the center for disease control and prevention, every year in the United States more than 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs. What does that mean for dog owners? Most home owner's insurance policies cover dog bites to some extent, although certain breeds of dogs may be excluded from the policy, such as pit bulls. In addition, the amount that the individual policy covers can vary.

Can poor lighting lead to a premises liability claim?

Have you ever been in a store that just didn't have good lighting? Maybe a light burned out, or perhaps they were not installed in order to save energy. Whatever the truth is, if you've been hurt because of poor lighting, it's nothing that you can laugh about.

Inadequate lighting can (and does) lead to serious injuries. Injuries can result from collisions, such as crashes in parking lots or from trips, slips and falls. Victims may suffer from broken bones, concussions and other injuries.

Winter Weather Driving Statistics May Surprise You

For those of us living in locations that have snowy winter weather, we are familiar with the hazards of driving in cold, snowy and icy conditions. Our local weather stations encourage us to stay home if possible during storms and if we must travel to allow ample time to get to our destinations. We are always on high alert for black ice on the freeways especially after dark and for those of us who love to ski, we might even own a set of chains for our tires so that we can make our way up the canyons when regular snow tires fail. Yet, how many of us actually know the statistics surrounding winter weather driving?

Get help with the catastrophic injury you're living with

Catastrophic injuries typically involve the spine or brain. Injuries to these parts of the body can be devastating, leading to many months or years of consequences. Brain and spinal injuries can range from minor to acute, but all of them have an impact that is noticeable to the victims.

Victims of catastrophic injuries need to get appropriate medical care to have the best chances of recovery. Often, these injuries are so serious that there is a risk of death or serious complications. It's important to get to the hospital quickly, so the risk of death is minimized and so that secondary complications can be minimized.
