Halloween safety tips for tots, parents and the community

With Halloween and trick-or-treating coming up soon, it's important to remember that a moment of inattention by an adult could turn a traditional day of fun into a tragedy. According to the National Safety Council, kids are more than two times as likely to be struck by a car and killed on Halloween than any other day.

Who's liable for a slip and fall?

Imagine you're walking through the supermarket. You're going about your business, staring intently at your shopping list and scanning the shelves for much-needed items.

Your foot rests at an unnatural angle, and a searing pain spreads through your leg.

US Tennis Association found mostly liable for player's slip and fall

At the 2015 U.S. Open, Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard slipped and fell on a wet floor in a locker room. She hit her head on the floor and suffered a serious head injury that caused her to slip from No. 5 in the world in 2014 to No. 116 today. She blamed the United States Tennis Association (USTA) for her injury.

Staying safe around swimming pools and spas

For many families, the ease of operation of soft-sided above-ground pools has made backyard swimming more accessible than ever before.
