Does a blow to the head justify a personal injury claim?

There are many ways that you might suffer a blow to the head because of some other party's negligence or mistake, whether that is in a car accident, a slip-and-fall, or while riding on public or private transportation. Regardless of where you receive a blow to the head, if some other party is responsible for the injury, you may have grounds for a personal injury suit, It is wise to understand the issues at hand before moving forward with legal action.

Property owners owe different duties to different visitors

Premises liability law may cover situations where an individual is hurt while on property owned by another. Whether or not a person can recover for injuries depends in part upon his or her status on the property. A trespasser, for example, is someone who does not have the right to be on the property. Property owners generally do not have a duty to warn trespassers of dangerous conditions, but they may be liable for willfully injuring a trespasser.

Golf course may have duty to get rid of wasps

The next time a person steps on a golf course, he or she may worry a little less about bees or other insect attacks. This is because a California court has ruled that a golf course has a duty to protect patrons against dangerous insects. While this happened in a different state, it is not inconceivable that courts in New York will come to the same conclusion.
