Injuries Can Happen Even At The Fair
While Florida is blessed with mild weather throughout the year, it’s during the summer, when school is out for children across the nation, that recreational activities are at an all-time high. Florida is fortunate in being the site of so many world class amusement parks but even beyond that, there are still old fashioned fairs with amusement rides that can make for a fun—cheaper—time than the expense of some of the bigger parks.
However, even in the very public areas of a fair, there are still risks that people need to careful of. And sometimes, unfortunately, those risks come from the attractions themselves. As recently as July 26, in Columbus, Ohio, visitors to the Ohio state fair got a tragic reminder of this.
An Inexplicable Accident

Riding Around On Two Wheels Just Became A Little More Dangerous
Motorcycles, bicycles, and other two-wheel vehicles can pose dangers to their riders. The safety features that are standard in cars are not available for bikes, and nothing is standing between drivers and the unforgiving open road. At an early age, we learn that it hurts to fall on the ground, and when high rates of speed become part of the equation, severe injuries or loss of life are possibilities. Cyclists often go out of their way to get the best helmets, clothing, and other safety equipment available to prevent these fates, so why would they expect any less from their bike?

It seems as if every time you turn on the news or open an internet browser, deja vu occurs, over and over again. Airbag and seat belt-related recalls remain atop the trending charts, and a new one seems to be announced at least every other day.

A Dashboard Camera Can Be Crucial Evidence
When an automobile accident occurs and damage—or even injury or death—are the consequences, that’s when it time to get a good St. Pete lawyer with expertise in car accidents and start trying get financial compensation. This is especially important if you know that an accident you were involved in wasn’t’ your fault but that of the other driver. However, the big question then becomes, how do you prove it? In the 21st century drivers have more technology available to them that help answer this question.
The Truth Is In There
The first order of business in any car accident is reconstructing the exact sequence of events so that the people involved, the police officers investigating, and even the lawyers that handle a personal injury case afterwards have a clear idea of the accident itself. In the past, this could be an extremely challenging task. It relied on the memory and testimony of people involved, and, with any luck, eye witnesses in other vehicles or on the street that may have seen what happened.
Today, security cameras on buildings and even traffic cameras on intersections can record driving activity... ...read full post
