Dog bites, kills 7-year-old Wisconsin boy – Las Vegas Review-Journal

A 7-year-old boy has died after being severely bitten by a dog in Dodge County in eastern Wisconsin.

As a California personal injury attorney that is handled many dog bite cases throughout the years, this case is reprehensible.

 

We all love dogs, but each year dogs do devastating damage to human beings. They may look cute and cuddly, but under the right circumstances a dog can cause devastating injuries.

 

I have done cases or a woman’s face was bitten off, a woman was almost disemboweled by a bite to the stomach, a beautiful young lady suffered permanent facial scars as a result of a dog bite, and numerous people of lost the function of their hand due to bites which damage delicate hand nerves.

 

In this case, a young child was killed by dog bite. I highly recommend that if you going to have dogs, that you take the dog through professional obedience school, and have the dog’s temperament professionally tested. Some dogs no matter how much you train them, have a propensity to bite. These types of dogs should never be kept by human beings.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

Owners of dogs and other pets are strictly liable for the actions of their pets in the state of California.

What this means is that a victim of a dog attack, or an attack by another one of your pets, on a victim, does not have to prove negligence in order to recover from you.

You can be the most vigilant animal or dog owner in history, it does not matter, in the state of California and many other states, you will be held legally strictly liable for the actions of your pets.

I believe that pit bulls are a dangerous breed of dogs, and are not safe to keep.

Based upon my experience as a dog bite attorney in the State of California, pit bull dogs have caused more injuries to my clients than any other breed.

I am a dog lover just like many other people. However, I am also practical. It does not make sense to keep a breed of dog in your home that can be unpredictable, and they can cause massive financial liability to you if it attacks somebody.

If you do have a dog that has attacked somebody, it is best to get rid of them. More often than not they will do that activity again.

Cellphone use causes over 1 in 4 car accidents

See on Scoop.itCalifornia Personal Injury Lawyer

The National Safety Council reports that the mobile devices are involved in 26% of all motor vehicle crashes.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

Cell phones are no joke. Just yesterday as I was riding my motorcycle down Pacific Coast Highway, I saw a young girl who literally was looking down at her lap texting pretty much the entire time she was driving. How in the heck is she supposed to be paying attention to traffic, if she is looking down texting while driving. The answer is obvious, she is not paying attention to what she is doing.

Anytime I handle a motor vehicle accident, car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, or other type of accident involving a vehicle, and we get into litigation, I subpoena cell phone records for around the time the accident occurred. If it turns out that the defendant was texting, or on the phone at the time of the accident, it helps me to prove liability in a personal injury case.

The fact that the national safety Council reports that 26% of all motor vehicle crashes now involve the use of cell phones, just goes to show how dangerous and distracting these devices are when you’re driving.

If you’re going to use a cell phone while driving, absolutely use a hands-free device. Not only will you save yourself an expensive ticket in most states, with California my home state especially, you may save a life, or yourself significant money. I can assure you that if you injure one of my clients in a car or other motor vehicle accident, I will be looking at your cell phone records to see if you were distracted.

Facial dog bites in children may require repeated plastic surgery

See on Scoop.itCalifornia Dog Bites

Dog bites to the face are a relatively common injury in young children, and often require repeated plastic surgery procedures to deal with persistent scarring, according to a new report.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

We all love our dogs, but you would be suprised at the damage they do to human beings each year. Some of my biggest cases have been dog bite cases. It is not a smart idea to keep dogs around small children.

Porsche sued over Paul Walker car crash
SheKnows.com
According to the lawsuit, Kristine Rodas claims that her husband Roger was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT at a safe speed of 55 mph before the accident occurred.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

I know this appears to be a flat our excessive speed / negligent driving case, but everything is not always what it seems in some cases. The makers of Porsche , sell the car as a psuedo racing type of car, and expect that their buyers will drive them fast. If there was a defect in the design that may have been a contributing factor in the crash, it will be up to a jury to apportion Porsche’s percentage of fault if any.

Alarming increase in deadly motorcycle accidents

The most recent data reveals that primary causes of motorcycle-involved crashes are speeding, unsafe turning and impairment due to alcohol and other drugs.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

5 motorcycle riders have died so far this month in the Inland Empire. This figure is appaling. The worse part is most of these deaths were the riders fault themselves. 

Check you six all. Don’t drink and drive, and ride safely. The only thing between you and the ground is your clothes.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

I have dealt with my share of military member accidents, both car and motorcycle accidents, as a personal injury attorney.

I am calling for our armed forces to implement some kind of driver training classes for service members as a mandatory condition of letting them drive on base.

When I was in the Air Force, there were no training programs.

I am sure that if someone were to sit our troops down and explain to them that they are dying in car crashes, and that many of the crashes are due to alcohol, or speed, and that these vehicle accidents can be prevented, many of our troops will heed the warning.

It is time for the commanders to intervene.

California pushes to finish driverless car rules – USA TODAY

See on Scoop.itCalifornia Car Accident Lawyer

89.3 KPCCCalifornia pushes to finish driverless car rulesUSA TODAYCalifornia’s law requires autonomous vehicles to log records of operation so the data can be used to reconstruct an accident.

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

I am very excited about the prospect of automated self driving cars. I think this technology could be a real solution to the traffic nightmares many of us face each day. if car computers could be linked together let’s say in commute mode, bumper to bumper traffic could theoretically be eliminated. If you wanted to drive to Las Vegas or New York, just program the car to drive and go. There probably needs to be some sort of sensor that would sound an alarm to wake us up if we fall asleep. This technology could also greatly reduce car accidents.Norm

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

There is no excuse for law enforcement to not follow basic traffic laws unless they are on a call which requires lights and sirens.  I have dealt with cases where my client was hit by a suspect in a police chase,  while riding his motorcycle.  It was not pretty.  I have personally observed law enforcement drive at excessive speed with no lights or sirens, not use turn signals,  and even put lights on for a few seconds just to skirt a traffic light.  This case is a horrible example of what can happen when law enforcement violated the rules of the road without justification.
