April Product Recalls

Every week consumer products are recalled due to safety and injury hazards. Below we've listed a few high-profile recalls from the month of April. If you have any of the following products in your home, stop using them immediately.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can cause significant skin and tissue damage. You may be kept in the hospital for days or weeks as you recover. Complications for serious burns can include skin infections, low body temperature and low blood volume.

What Does the State Need in a DWI Case?

There are certain criteria that have to be met in court to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of driving while intoxicated. The burden of proof lies upon the state, but it is important to note juries in Texas also tend to be conservative regarding DWIcases (i.e. lean towards the state).

Safe Driving Around Pedestrians

Knowing how to drive in a safe manner around pedestrians is tantamount for keeping others safe on the road. Particularly in the US, per mile traveled, a pedestrian is 36 times more likely to die than the driver that hits them. Nationally, a little over five percent of trips you will make are on foot. However, the traffic fatalities correlate far higher, as 13 percent of all traffic fatalities are pedestrians.

What Constitutes Abuse in a Nursing Home

The idea of a loved one potentially being abused in their nursing home can be unbearable. In homes where the elderly rely on staff for everything from medication to meals, the potential for abuse of such authority exists. You should know the types of abuse to be vigilant against.

How Often do Oil and Gas Accidents Occur?

The answer is too often. Accidents involving oil and gas are eight times as likely to occur as other accidents on a job site. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 2002 to 2007, almost 600 fatalities occurred in the industry. In 2008 alone, there were another 120 deaths in the oil and gas extraction field.
