I have cancer. Do I have a valid claim for disability benefits?

There is nothing as frightening as a diagnosis of cancer, and the last thing you want to worry about at this time is your financial health. However, with cancer often comes treatments and chemotherapy that may leave you unable to work for an extended period of time.

Wills versus trusts: The right tools for your estate

Estate planning is not something solely reserved for the wealthy, but is a wise step for any person who wishes to maintain control over what happens to his or her estate in the future. Having a will is the most basic step in estate planning regardless of a person's income or wealth, but there are also other ways to protect yourself, such as by establishing a trust.

Amusement Park Accidents

Amusement parks can be a lot of fun, but they can also be the cause of injuries. It was recently reported that 12 children were injured at a festival in Connecticut when a malfunction caused a swing ride to come to a sudden halt. Injuries from amusement park rides vary considerably in severity, from minor bruising to severe trauma requiring hospitalization and sometimes even death.

Defective Toy Injuries

Toy safety is a major concern for parents. Reports of toys being recalled due to safety issues occur all too frequently. Only recently it was reported that Toys R Us recalled "Journey Girl Travel Trunks" because of the danger of laceration. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the store received reports of six incidents involving the trunk handle, including a report of one person who required stitches due to laceration.

Steps to Take Following a Swimming Pool Accident

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that swimming is the most popular recreational activity among children and teens. Disturbingly, however, in 2008, nearly one in eight routine pool inspections resulted in immediate closure due to serious public health and safety violations. Owners and operators of pools have a duty to ensure their pools are safe. If they were negligent and as a result of that negligence you or your child have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Examples of negligence are failure to adequately supervise, failure to properly maintain the facilities and failure to warn.

Tennessee Dog Bite Law

In 2012, more than 27,000 people received reconstructive surgery as a result of a dog bite. Clearly dog attacks can be a serious problem, so what are you options if you or a loved one is bitten by a dog?
