Dangers of Buses

Many do not think twice when they get on a bus - whether it be on a commercial bus for a short trip instead of taking an airplane, getting on a bus for a church outing, or putting their child on a school bus. What many of us do not think about is how dangerous busses can actually be. CNN reported recently that 18 children and 2 adults were killed in Beijing when an overloaded school bus collided with a gas coal truck. The bus involved was a nine-seater minibus with 64 people on board at the time of the accident. In addition to the 18 deaths, another 45 people were injured and are being treated at a hospital.

New Year, New Car Seat Requirements

New California law makes requirements much stricter for those children who want to kiss their booster seats goodbye. Currently, California law allows children by age 6 or 60 pounds to leave behind their booster seats. On October 4, 2011, Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law that increases the age requirement from age 6 to age 8, or the child being 4 feet 9 inches tall - whichever comes first. The new law will become effective on January 1, 2012.

Football season and looking again and brain injury

New Brunswick Considering to Increase Personal Injury Cap on Minor Injuries

Currently in New Brunswick, the cap on pain and suffering for minor injuries is capped at $2,500. However, a group appointed by the government is recommending this be increased to between $4,000 and $6,000. The current cap was set initially to stem insurance premium increases. People opposed to this current cap, argue that it is too low and that many injures, that are not "minor," are being labeled as such. The chairman of this government appointed review group, Michel Leger, said one of the most important changes to this is the definition of what counts as a minor injury. He said "[m] inor personal injury should be a sprain, strain or whiplash-associated disorder or a combination thereof, which results in minor consequences in a person's life."
