Nevada second in deaths from running red lights

According to a recent authoritative study, more are dying because drivers are running red lights. In the most recent year of available data, close to 940 people died in the U.S. from red-light runners. The fatality figure is the highest in a decade and shows a nearly 30% increase since 2012.

Unfortunately, Nevada and Arizona are the national leaders in deaths from blowing through red lights. In both states, there are about five deaths from red-light running per million people per year.

How to document a dog bite

It doesn't matter if you love dogs or prefer to keep your distance, there's something you need to know. You could be the victim of a dog bite at any time.

If a dog bites you, here are the first things you need to do:

  • Call for medical care, such as by dialing 911
  • Exchange information with the dog's owner, if possible
  • Ask witnesses for their contact information
  • Contact animal control

5 steps to take after a motor vehicle accident

While no two motor vehicle accidents are identical in regard to the circumstances, there are general steps you can take if you find yourself in this challenging position.

Here are five steps you should attempt to take:

  • Move to safety: By moving your vehicle out of the flow of traffic, you reduce the likelihood of additional trouble. The best thing you can do is move to the shoulder of the road or a nearby parking lot, if possible.
  • Check yourself and passengers for injuries: Even a minor motor vehicle accident can result in serious injuries, such as broken bones and concussion, so don't wait to take this step.
  • Call 911: The dispatcher can help keep you calm, while also sending an ambulance and local police officer to the scene. This will go a long way in putting your mind at ease, which can help prevent a mistake that worsens your situation.
  • Exchange information: This isn't a priority if you're injured, but it's something to consider if you're able to do so. You don't have to discuss the details of the accident. Ask the other party for their insurance card, while also taking notes regarding the make, model and color of the vehicle. Placing blame at this time will only make things worse, so stick to the basics.
  • Document the accident: If possible, take photos of the accident scene, your injuries and damage to your vehicle. You can also document the accident by requesting a copy of the police report.

What should you do about a partnership dispute?

Working with a business partner is beneficial in many ways. From helping you grow the company to taking on some of the risk, there are many reasons to go into business with a partner.

Unfortunately, partnership disputes are all too common. While disagreements are sure to happen every now and again, it's up to you and your partner to avoid an all-out battle.

These car accident injuries are among the most common

You never know what could happen if you're involved in a car accident. It's your hope that you walk away without suffering an injury, but this isn't always the case.

Here are some of the most common types of car accident injuries:

  • Head injuries: This encompasses many types of injuries, such as concussions, bleeding on the brain and skull fractures.
  • Broken bones: Every bone in your body is at risk of injury in a car accident. From your skull all the way down to your feet, it's possible that an accident will result in at least one broken bone.
  • Neck and back injuries: These include but are not limited to herniated disks, fractures, strains and sprains. The most serious neck and back injuries can result in paralysis.
  • Burns and abrasions: For example, if your vehicle catches fire, you could suffer serious burns. If you're ejected from your vehicle, abrasions and deep lacerations are likely.
