Should gun manufacturers be responsible for injuries?

When a car malfunctions and hurts its driver or a restaurant serves tainted food, injured consumers have the ability to sue the company for the damage it caused.

How not to spread fake news

Recent news has shown that Americans have serious difficulty distinguishing between real news and fake news.

Drivers blame sunlight for recent pedestrian crashes

Have you ever traversed the streets in the evening and had to shield your eyes because the sunset was so bright?

In some cases, a fatality that results from a negligent boater may legally be considered a wrongful death.
