Rafting accident has a happy ending after days of searching

The summer is here, and you might be excited to get on the river to go rafting. If you are planning to go rafting, it's important to take precautions to avoid injuries. A July 10 news report discussed a man who went missing after a rafting accident and his struggle to survive until he was able to get help.

The story begins when the rafters were separated from their boats. They had been rafting on an air mattress, pool inner tube and pool-type rafts, which may not have been as river-worthy as expected. Four of them and a dog were left on land after losing their rafts. One man decided to scout the area to seek help, while the other rafters stayed together.

Can I claim loss of consortium damages?

When it comes to injuries in a car accident, most plaintiffs think about the extent and permanence of their injuries and the cost of medical care needed to get better. However, there are a wide variety of other injuries that plaintiffs will endure as the result of an injurious crash. In fact, even a plaintiff's spouse may suffer damages as a result of a car accident.

When a noninjured spouse claims damages relating to a car accident, they are usually related to loss of companionship, also referred to as loss of consortium. Loss of consortium refers to the harm that a spouse suffers indirectly as a result of his or her husband or wife's complete or partial incapacitation.

What can you do to prevent and treat firework injuries?

Burns are a risk to victims because they have the potential to cause permanent or long-lasting injuries. Scars, nerve damage and disfigurement are all possible. On the Fourth of July, it's highly likely that someone will get hurt as a result of using fireworks, either legally or not. July 4 is actually the busiest day of the year for emergency rooms and firefighters, showing just how likely fires are to cause problems on this holiday weekend.

The best thing you can do for yourself during the Fourth of July festivities is to prevent injuries by only setting off fireworks if you have a permit to do so or are in a permitted area. If you get hurt because someone doesn't follow those simple rules, you may be able to file a personal injury claim.

Can you be susceptible to road rage?

Independence Day weekend is widely regarded as one of the busiest times to be on the road. Even with California’s traditionally high gas prices (even though they are lower than in past years), it is expected that more people will be on the road. Nationwide, it is expected that more than 37 million people will travel at least 50 miles to a vacation destination.

Indeed, dealing with heavy traffic, especially on Interstate 80, can fray a person’s nerves. Traffic jams may lead to aggressive driving and even road rage. Yes, we may think that the people driving around us are crazy, but how can you tell if you are the problem? This post will identify some common factors.
