Children: Potentially at risk in winter

Children are some of the most at-risk individuals during the winter. They love being outside, but with outdoor activities come danger. While parents put their children's needs first, that's not always the case when your children are with others. For instance, a child who goes to school should be monitored. If he or she is on the playground, it's important for someone to be watching to make sure he or she doesn't get hurt. In the winter, this is even more important, since temperatures could drop dramatically and result in hypothermia or frostbite.

Fire chief puts life on the line to save victim in car crash

When an emergency medical worker, firefighter or other medical provider sees someone hurting, it's normal for him or her to put others first. This unusual story shows how important it is to some to put others before themselves, even when they're in life-threatening danger themselves.

Proving a wrongful death case is possible with good documentation

Whenever a person dies because of another person's negligence or errors, that person's death is considered wrongful. A wrongful death lawsuit focuses on laying liability on the person who caused the individual's death. Unlike a criminal case, a wrongful death lawsuit requires a lower standard of proof, so it's possible for someone who caused a death not to face criminal charges while still being found liable for a death.
