Commercial truck drivers deliver food and other goods around the country. However, if truck drivers are distracted, drowsy or act in another negligent manner, they can cause an accident. Since trucks are much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, they are more likely to cause catastrophic injuries.

Unfortunately, it is also possible to suffer injuries while under a medical professional’s care. Common types of medical malpractice cases include surgical errors, misdiagnosis, medications mistakes and birth injuries. If you believe that you are the victim of medical malpractice, it is important to speak with an attorney promptly about your legal options.

Slip and fall accidents can occur in many different settings, from grocery stores to parking lots. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe for others.
