What is an 'inevitable accident'?

When you're involved in a car accident, it may seem obvious who the at-fault driver is. However, sometimes a driver who is held liable can argue in court that it was an "inevitable accident." This defence is sometimes used when an accident was caused by factors that were beyond the driver's control.

Study: Controlled exercise may help heal a concussion

Concussions and other brain injuries are an increasing source of concerns for parents of athletes in their teens and even younger. Too many are never diagnosed or reported, so their true frequency can't be known. Even CAT scans and MRIs sometimes don't detect whether a concussion has occurred.

Falls are a real danger after a spinal cord injury

The thought of a spinal cord injury is truly frightening because we all know that it can result in partial or complete paralysis and the inability to walk again. However, most spinal cord injuries -- nearly 70 percent -- are incomplete. That means that the spinal cord hasn't been fully severed. Many victims of incomplete spinal cord injuries can and do walk again with intensive physical therapy and rehabilitation.

What is social host liability?

Most people are aware that "commercial hosts," such as bars and restaurants, can potentially be held liable if the employees continue to serve a customer alcohol, despite the fact that he or she is clearly intoxicated or if they allow a customer to leave in an intoxicated state and then that person harms someone and/or themselves. However, individuals, or "social hosts" can also be held liable if a guest leaves their home or an event intoxicated and gets into an accident or otherwise causes harm or is harmed because of his or her condition.
