  • Pedestrian, bicycle, motor vehicle, or airplane accidents, such as large truck crashes, uninsured motorists, poor road maintenance, blind intersections, and drunk drivers
  • Nursing home neglect or abuse, including medication errors, unsanitary conditions, or falls
  • Workplace accidents, such as construction sites, falling objects, and electrocutions
  • Medical malpractice, including medication errors, surgical malpractice, bacterial infections or birth injuries
  • Criminal attacks or unsafe premises, including residences and retail stores, industrial settings, and/or hazardous waste spills
  • Poor or faulty security, including unsafe dorms or apartments and non-functioning video surveillance
