Failing to shovel your property puts your safety at risk, as well as the safety of those around you. And should someone become injured, there could be legal repercussions. #premisesliability
Your municipality may have laws on snow removal, but you'll pay an even bigger price if somebody slips and falls on your property.

Anthony Diaz was gunned down in the city's Belmont Central neighborhood about 10:30 p.m. Sunday while his older sisters took on gang members in a fight.
The bloodshed ended with the basketball-loving boy dead, Anthony's stepdad said.

"Medical errors kill more people than car crashes or new disease outbreaks. They kill more people annually than breast cancer, AIDS, plane crashes, or drug overdoses."

Interesting... I know I was in the hospital running a severe fever post-appendectomy, and a nurse came in with a med.  Before she gave it to me, I asked what I was taking and why.  She read the bottle and said "Oops, wrong room."  They had also assumed that the blood pressure machine was faulty when they got an extremely low reading on me.  Upon my husband's insistence, they went and got a new machine.  Yep, it was that low!
The moral of the story is you have to be your own advocate to the extent possible or have someone with if you can to watch out for your interests.

None of the duvets or armoires were for sale, but sheriff's investigators said they found $2 million worth of marijuana inside a Santa Clara County furniture store last week.

Joseph Sledge is a free man after 37 years in prison following Friday's decision by a judicial panel in North Carolina to overturn his 1976 conviction in the stabbing deaths of an elderly mother and her daughter.

The Associated Press says DNA evidence had helped to exonerate Sledge, now 70, whose case was referred last month to the three-judge panel by the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission.

According to the AP:

    "The expert said none of the evidence collected in the case — hair, DNA and fingerprints — belonged to Sledge. A key jailhouse informant had also recanted his story, saying authorities promised him leniency in his own case for his trial testimony against Sledge.

    "A district attorney who was not originally involved apologized to Sledge and promised to reopen the investigation.

    " 'The system has made a mistake,' district attorney Jon David said."

David, who was not the original prosecutor, pledged to reopen the investigation and apologized to Sledge, according to Raleigh-based WRAL:

    " 'There's nothing worse for a prosecutor than convicting an innocent person,' he said.

    "Earlier Friday, a member of the Davis family took the stand, saying the family is 'heartbroken' by the decision that Sledge go free.

    "Sledge then took the stand.

    " 'I'm very, very sorry for your loss,' he said. 'I hope you get closure in this matter.' "

WRAL says that at the time of the murders, "Sledge had been serving a four-year sentence at a prison work farm for larceny when he escaped a day before the slayings. That factored into his conviction, as well as key testimony from two fellow prisoners who said Sledge admitted to the killings."

Raleigh's News & Observer reports: "Sledge has been proclaiming his innocence of the murders of Josephine and Ailene Davis since he was initially blamed in 1976. From the start, he has asked prosecutors, police and judges to take another look at his case. It took nearly four decades for the justice system to correct its mistake."

Sledge reportedly planned to have dinner at a restaurant before returning home to Savannah, Ga. He said he looked forward to sleeping in a real bed for the first time in nearly four decades.
Joseph Sledge, now 70, spent 37 years in prison for a crime that a three-judge panel said Friday he did not commit.

Do I understand that his own family were "heartbroken" because he was set free? IOW they don't want him out? And if that's true, why, if he's innocent of the murders?

The train hit the truck just before 5:45 a.m., the California Highway Patrol said online. At least one vehicle was said to be "fully engulfed," the patrol said.  Five cars derailed, three of which came to rest on their sides, said Margaret Remmen, a management assistant at the Ventura County Fire Department. Officials have completed a search of the cars, she said. #personalinjurylawyers   #pittsburghpersonalinjurylawyers

Just How Dangerous Is Texting And Driving? See These Five Startling Statistics. #Infographic  

Do you still think texting and driving is harmless? Think again.

Texting while driving is downright dangerous. Avoiding it should be a no brainer.

But if you need another reason not to text while driving:  Teens report that if their parents drive distracted, then they think it okay to do so too.

In a recent study by “Students Against Destructive Decisions” and Liberty Mutual, 66% of teens surveyed said that their parents texted, talked on the phone, or participated with another distracting activity while driving.

It's shocking to people the penalties associated with a second DUI in Georgia.  After being slapped on the wrist for a first DUI, the penalties for a second DUI include jail time, loss of license, and at least 30 days of community service.   #second  #dui #georgia #georgiaduilawyer   #georgiaduiattorney

Falling Asleep Behind the Wheel

In 2012, a poll was conducted by the AAA Foundation, which revealed that a large percentage of Americans claim to have fallen asleep while driving. The results were in congruence with those published by the National Sleep Foundation Polls (NSF). Driving when drowsy means a far higher risk of car accidents. In a recent study conducted by the NSF, it was shown that a third of surveyed people admitted to drowsy driving in the last 30 days. As many as 60 percent of drivers admitted to have driven while they were drowsy. Furthermore, 37 percent of the respondents claimed that they had fallen asleep behind the wheel.

The Risks of Drowsy Driving

It is a well known fact that drowsy driving can be extremely dangerous and can put the lives of the driver, passengers, and other people on the road at risk. However, many people fail to recognize the risks. Our St. Louis car accident attorney feels that educating drivers on the risks of drowsy or sleepy driving is the key to preventing accidents and unnecessary injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 100,000 car accidents reported every year to police are caused by fatigue and sleepiness. It is unfortunate that such accidents occur even when they can be prevented by taking some simple steps.

Are You Sleep Deprived?

Experts believe that the root cause of accidents caused by sleepy driving in the United States is that many Americans are sleep deprived. In a study published by Lancet it was revealed that almost a quarter of all adults feel that they are sleep deprived and that almost 10 percent of all adults suffer from what is known as full-fledged insomnia.

Insomnia poses numerous risks to drivers. Studies have shown that people who suffer from insomnia show symptoms similar to that of severe sleep deprivation, leading to a higher risk of car accidents. Those who get less sleep than what is required are more likely to fall asleep behind the wheel, especially when driving for long distances or alone. They also pose a risk to other drivers sharing the road.

The Effects of Driving While Drowsy

Even if a person is not suffering from insomnia, but is simply tired, he or she is at a higher risk of being involved in a car accident.

Fatigue or sleepiness behind the wheel can cause the following:

 - Impaired judgement, reaction time, and vision.
 - Decreased vigilance, performance, and motivation to focus on the road.
- Impaired ability to process information and poor short-term memory.
- Aggressiveness and increased moodiness while driving.
