Driver killed after fleeing police, crashing into pizzeria

A bizarre motor vehicle accident up in Springdale, Pennsylvania left one person dead and a pizzeria damaged after the car crashed into it.

9-year-old bitten by pit bull

A dog bite story out of Kansas City could have happened anywhere in America, given its all-too-familiar details. The story involves a 9-year-old child that had just arrived at a park with his father.

When you slip and fall on someone's premises, who is responsible?

Any property owner or non-owner resident has a responsibility to maintain a safe apartment, building or premises.

So when a dangerous condition exists and it isn't properly addressed, you can get a premises liability lawsuit that comes from the accident related to the dangerous condition if someone is harmed.

You might need uninsured motorist coverage

Imagine making your daily commute when another driver rear-ends you. Once the police arrive and you and the other driver are providing your information for the police report, you find out that he does not have car insurance.

The impact was hard enough that you soon began to experience back and neck pain. What if the damage is more serious than you think it is? Will you be stuck paying expensive medical bills and losing out on pay because you have to take time off of work?
