When the coronavirus pandemic hit, many students across the country and around the world were placed in a unique situation, probably unlike anything they’ve ever faced in all in their years of schooling. Stemming from public health concerns, many schools largely shifted from in-person instruction to remote learning. Our students and leaders of tomorrow had no choice but to adapt to a new normal. Even when in-classroom meetings resumed, there were still forever-altered circumstances facing students, on top of their normal curriculum.
Ridesharing has become popular in Arizona and throughout the nation in recent years. It provides people with a convenient, cost-effective way to get around without driving. However, rideshare drivers can be involved in accidents the same as other drivers.
Daycare centers in Arizona are in a position of trust. Parents place their children in daycare when they must be away, typically while they are at work. These facilities have a duty to implement appropriate security measures to guard against dangers to the children in their care. When a child is injured due to daycare negligence, the facility may be held liable for damages.
Police have the job of stopping people from committing crimes. When an officer signals a driver to pull over with sirens and flashing lights, the driver is required to comply. In some cases, however, drivers refuse to pull over and try to outrun police instead, leading to a high speed chase. This creates a risk of injury for others on the road.
Being attacked by a dog is a terrifying experience, especially when it happens to a child. If you or someone you love was bitten by a dog in Arizona, you will want apply first aid and seek immediate medical care. You must also report any dog bite to county health officials right away.
Safe drivers check their mirrors and get their cars serviced regularly to make sure their brakes and other safety equipment are working properly. They also drive defensively to protect themselves and their passengers from careless drivers who don’t always follow the rules. But even when you take all these safety precautions, you still may suffer injuries in an accident caused by unsafe road conditions.
As Arizona’s population grows, the number of annual deaths and injuries caused by traffic accidents continues to increase. In fact, 2021 was a deadly year on our roads and highways with over 98,000 crashes, that lead to over 26,000 injuries and almost 1,000 fatalities.
More people means more traffic. And since these new drivers aren’t always familiar with our roads, we can expect these unfortunate trends to continue to rise.
At The Husband & Wife Legal Team, we believe in giving back to the community. That’s why we are proud to announce that we will be awarding two $1000 scholarships this year. These scholarships are open to college-bound high school seniors and current college students. One of the scholarships will be awarded to an Arizona student, and the other is open to students across the United States.
Motor vehicle accidents happen every day on Arizona roads and highways. In 2020, there were 98,778 traffic accidents statewide, 970 of which were fatal and 28,610 of which caused injury, as reported by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). If you have been involved in an accident, don’t count on insurance adjusters to offer you a fair settlement that covers all your damages.
An auto accident, even if minor, is a shock. The crashing sound of impact, losing control of your vehicle, the fear of death, and the pain of an injury can leave you feeling powerless, fearful, and confused. However, when possible, taking photos after an auto accident can be critical to the outcome of an injury claim. Without photographic evidence, the at-fault driver and their insurance company may assert you were wholly or partially at fault in the accident. The photographic evidence tells the story of what occurred – and the more photos you have, the better.
