Slip and fall case leads to $1.7 million reward

Way back in 2012, a 60-year-old woman was shopping in a Dollar General store outside of the state of California. The woman was walking down the aisles when she stepped in a puddle of spilled laundry detergent. The woman slipped and fell, fracturing her leg and shoulder. The injuries she suffered required numerous surgeries to fix, and the medical bills associated with the procedures totaled roughly half a million dollars.

Medical emergencies while driving could be aided by technology

Imagine that you are driving down the road one day, and you feel a sudden pain in your chest. "That's odd," you think. You're a relatively healthy person who keeps up with his or her doctor's appointments and checkups. So you keep driving thinking it's just a weird shooting pain. But it only persists and gets worse.

31 deaths in 2016 related to dog bites

31 people were killed in the United States in 2016 due to a dog attack. What is amazing about that statistic is that of those fatal dog attacks, 22 of them occurred with a pit bull. That means 71 percent of the fatal dog bites in the country were done by pit bulls, even though this breed only makes up 6 percent of the population.
