A dog can be a great addition to your family, offering a special type of companionship, especially for children. I speak from personal experience! Helping care for a dog can also teach your kids about responsibility. But a dog is not a toy. And no matter how gentle the dog may seem, leaving small children unattended with one is never a good idea.
Many people believe that being unhappy with a medical outcome could be a basis for a medical malpractice case. The reality is that in order to have a medical malpractice case in Virginia, you have to show that a reasonable medical standard of care was not met and that there were resulting injuries.
If you have been injured through someone else’s negligence, how much your case is worth will depend on several factors. There’s no such thing as a “personal injury loss calculator” — every case is different.

A pedestrian in Virginia is anyone on foot, or anyone who is not using a motor vehicle. A person using a skateboard, roller skates, or an e-scooter could be considered a pedestrian.
It’s traumatic for all concerned when a child is bitten by a dog.
Sad Facts: Any dog will bite under certain circumstances, and all children are vulnerable to serious injuries. Dogs are more likely to attack children than adults, and dog bite injuries tend to be more serious in children. Severe dog bites most frequently involve the head and neck and occur in children younger than five, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Rotator cuff tears are common injuries in car accidents. If you have been involved in a collision and are experiencing pain in your shoulder, it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible.
If you were involved in a crash and your airbags did not deploy, you may be wondering why they didn’t. Airbags are not designed to deploy in every collision – only in certain types of accidents.
One reason people don’t go to the hospital after an accident is the high cost of medical care. Even with good health insurance, many people can’t handle the out-of-pocket expenses that come with an emergency room visit, MRI scan, or surgery. And, most people can’t predict how expensive a medical bill will be because hospitals do not normally share treatment costs publicly.
Like everyone who operates a motor vehicle in Virginia, motorcyclists are required to carry minimum liability insurance. This requirement under Commonwealth law helps hold drivers and riders financially responsible for any accidents and injuries they cause.
