An employee is entitled to be paid by their employer for all time worked. In today's economy, employers can take advantage of you by not paying overtime, paying you below minimum wage, or giving you comp time. These tactics, however, are illegal. If you think you are being cheated by your employer, you may have a wage claim.

Tire blowouts account for approximately 535 deaths and 23,000 every year across the U.S. Factors that contribute to tire blow outs include mismatched tires, under-inflation, low tire pressure, and high heat. Tire blow outs can result in the driver's loss of control of the vehicle which in turn can cause serious injuries.

Sport utility vehicles (SUV's) are more likely to rollover in an accident than other vehicles. A study found that when it comes to fatal rollovers, SUVs accounted for 36%, trucks accounted for 24%, and vans accounted or 19%. You can help prevent a rollover accident by watching your speed, checking your tires, and pay close attention while you are driving.

It is common for a person to be involved in a motor vehicle accident and the driver at fault to have no motor vehicle liability insurance. This means the injured party cannot recover their harms and losses through the at fault driver's insurance. In Missouri, vehicle operators are required to have a minimum of $25,000 uninsured motorist coverage. That way, if you are injured by an uninsured motorist, your uninsured motorist coverage will cover your damages from the accident. Since you never know how costly your damages will be as a result of an accident, you may want to increase your coverage to a significant level.

By law, property owners in Missouri have a duty to keep their property in a safe condition. If the property is not maintained and a serious injury or death occurs as a result, the property owner can be held liable. Common premises liability lawsuits stem from slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents can be caused by ice, poorly maintained sidewalks, spilled chemicals, and poor lighting. If you think you have a premises liability claim, you should immediately seek legal representation to protect your interests.

One form of medical malpractice stems from surgical errors. A study performed found that surgeons across the United States operate on the wrong part of a patients body at least 40 times per week. These surgical errors are commonly brought on by failing to mark the surgical site, increased time pressures, and operating on a patient who was given another patient's test results on accident.

When you consume alcohol and get behind the wheel of a vehicle, you are putting yourself and other people on the road in danger. A recent year long study conducted in Missouri found that 4,500 people were injured and 262 people died in accidents involving alcohol. Victims harmed by a drunk driver may be compensated for medical bills incurred, future medical bills, lost wages, property damage, funeral expenses, and future income.

According to the CDC, approximately 9.2 million children a year are seen at the ER due to unintentional injuries. Common child injuries are caused by falls, animal bites, being struck by an object, vehicle accidents, and daycare accidents. Most child fatalities are the result of transportation accidents, drowning, and suffocation. Although dealing with an attorney following a child injury or death is the last thing on your mind, it is important to contact one immediately.
