Motorcycle Collisions

Whereas automobiles are manufactured with air bags, seat belts, electronic balance systems, GPS, On Star, and dozens of other features catered to the safety of the driver and passengers, motorcycles don’t have these luxuries. Enthusiasts will argue that the one true luxury of a motorcycle is freedom. However, that freedom comes with the increased chances for accident and injuries.

Safety Belt Defects

There is nothing in your automobile that will help protect you and your passengers from a traffic collision better than the safety belts. Also known as seat belts, these protective harnesses have saved more lives in motor vehicle accidents than any other accessory and device manufactured in automobiles. Every year, seat belts save thousands of lives (in 2003, they saved 15,000 people) and as more and more states adopt mandatory seat belt laws, they will continue to save more.

Toy-related Injuries

Toys are meant to provide enjoyment and education for children of all ages, however they can also provide a great deal of danger. Small children, when left unsupervised, are susceptible to confusion and wonderment, and that can lead to injuries to the eye, mouth, throat, ear, arms, or legs, depending on the toy and the possibilities. After all, the majority of toy-related injuries are associated to the toy itself, but they aren’t necessarily caused by the toy.

Sports Injuries

In any sport, there is always a risk of injury. From major competitive team sports like football, baseball and basketball, to individual sports like bowling, golf and swimming, your body is at risk to the elements surrounding it when involved in physical activity. While violent and combative sports like football and hockey would prove to be the sports more inviting to serious injury, it is not to say that the seemingly harmless sports are not conducive to physical detriment as well.

All-terrain vehicles are small, single- or dual-person vehicles that are used for recreational purposes on off-road courses or areas of wider land. They are not street legal in the United States, and owners and riders are required to follow subsequent laws and regulations regarding where the vehicles can be operated, as well as the use of proper safety equipment.

SUV rollovers

A rollover is an automobile accident most generally associated with sport utility vehicles, and involves the vehicle flipping over onto its side or roof. Rollovers can lead to severe injury, property damage, vehicle damage, and death. Over the years, there has been a great deal of attention on rollovers because of class action and single lawsuits against major automobile manufacturers over the lack of safety in these multi-passenger vehicles.

Traffic Collision

When an automobile traveling on any type of road strikes another object, a traffic collision has occurred. Whether the vehicle strikes another vehicle, a building, a sign, a guard rail, a human, an animal, or any other object of mass that can cause damage upon impact, it will qualify as a traffic collision. Depending on the severity of these automotive accidents, they can lead to physical injury, property damage, vehicle damage, and death, involving both drivers and passengers.

Suffocation

Medically referred to as asphyxia, suffocation occurs when the body is deprived of oxygen, causing abnormal and impeded breathing. When the body lacks oxygen, the organs and tissues will fail, potentially leading to death. Without oxygen, a person will become light-headed, dizzy and will eventually pass out. As the body processes the remaining oxygen in the blood, the body’s organs will fail and the victim will eventually die.

Wrongful Death

The term “wrongful death” generally refers to a lawsuit that is filed in civil court between the family of a victim and the person they believe to be responsible for the victim’s death. A wrongful death can be defined as either negligent or unjust, with the actions of one leading to the death of another. For example, if the passenger of a motor vehicle is killed in an accident, the driver of the other car or even the car the passenger was riding in could be held responsible for wrongful death, depending on the cause of the accident.
