Reviewing Legal Malpractice: When Errors Constitute Negligence

Nobody's perfect and mistakes happen in every profession and all walks of life. But when your attorney commits substantive errors and omissions that are responsible for a detrimental outcome to your case, he may be guilty of legal negligence. In these situations, you might have a viable legal malpractice claim.

Social media can help you avoid criminal convictions

If you're accused of raping or sexually assaulting another person, you have every right to be offended and to defend yourself. You may have found yourself in a situation where you're facing allegations out of revenge, and that's not fair to you. Fortunately, your attorney can help you in a number of ways.

Nipping the Problem of Passenger Distraction in the Bud

When most people think of distracted driving, cell phone use and texting are the first things that come to mind, but one of the biggest distractions is much less "high tech." It's actually passengers. When passengers are looked at officially as a distraction, much of the emphasis goes to teens or other young drivers new to the road. One study by an insurance company found that a teen who drove with just one passenger was twice as likely to get into a fatal accident, and if two or more teens were passengers, five times as many fatal accidents occurred. Many states, and other countries as well, have placed extra passenger restrictions on young drivers to help prevent them from becoming distracted on the road, and therefore not only a danger to those it their vehicle, but anyone else they are sharing the road with as well.

Is drowsy driving dangerous, and why?

Drowsy driving is a serious problem in the United States for a number of reasons. First, it is usually a result of poor sleep, which means the driver is at risk of falling asleep behind the wheel. Second, it's a distraction. Drowsy driving is sometimes combined with distracting behavior, like talking on the phone or texting friends. If you take medications that cause drowsiness and don't get enough sleep, it puts you at a higher risk of falling asleep behind the wheel as well.
