Can a football player sue the NFL for brain injuries?

Last year, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez took his own life after killing his friend over a perceived slight.

In the wake of a personal injury, avoid social media.

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident and you’ve filed a personal injury claim, it’s more important than ever to be careful about what you post on social media.

Claimed rarity of e-cigarette explosions isn't the point

Back in the 1970s, a clever marketer came up with the line: "Without chemicals, life itself would be impossible." Today, the phrase might go, "Without electronics, life itself would be impossible." Everybody has some form of battery-powered device in hand: a cellphone, smartphone or car fob. Battery-powered devices are replacing even cigarettes.

Why are some intersections more dangerous than others?

Sacramento is not as big as some cities in the state, but it does rank high when it comes to bicycling accidents. This is cause for concern when you consider that statisticians put the number of individuals biking to work every day in the city at more than 4,000.
