Personal injuries happen everywhere: Be sure to protect your rights

Every minute, every day, someone is injured across this country.

People are killed or injured seriously in vehicle accidents, they’re hurt in falls in workplaces or in public places, and they’re hurt in a wide range of incidents that we don’t even think about until it happens.

In Barnesville, Minn., a 51-year-old man was killed earlier this month when he was trapped underneath a closing garage door inside his business, according to a story in Minneapolis Star Tribune.

In Auburn, Mass., a four-year-old boy died when he fell from a second-floor escalator in a department store in a suburban shopping mall, according to a story in The Boston Globe.

And in the New York City metropolitan area, two separate discount tour bus crashes in a span of two days killed 14 bus riders on a Bronx highway and two riders in an accident on the N.J. Turnpike, according to stories in The New York Times.

Things happen and people are seriously hurt or killed.

In all of these cases, victims and their families will have to look at what occurred and determine what legal recourses to take to protect their futures.
