Every year, there are thousands of injuries because of dog bites. In fact, 1,000 people end up in U.S. emergency rooms every day because of dog bites.
The dangers of distracted driving are often well-publicized. Unfortunately, some people may mistakenly believe that a cellphone is the only distraction in a vehicle. Reaching for an item or changing the radio station can often result in serious motor vehicle accidents, especially when done in potentially hazardous conditions, including at a construction site. In fact, a recent crash in Illinois is said to have sent 10 people to the hospital.
Most people in Illinois would agree that police dogs play an important role in law enforcement. However, even despite their training, they may act unpredictably or accidentally identify an innocent target. Unfortunately, a woman in another state claims that she suffered multiple dog bites in an attack by a police dog while she was taking out her garbage.
Drivers are taught to drive defensively and to obey traffic laws. While doing so may go a long way toward avoiding motor vehicle accidents, even the safest of Illinois drivers is sometimes unable to completely avoid the negligent actions of others. Unfortunately, a family is now coming to terms with the unexpected death of a loved following a recent crash.
