Everyone knows insurance is available for purchase to cover a car on car collision; it is a state law requirement. So what coverage is available for a bicyclist? Comprehensive bicycle insurance is not sold in the United States unlike some European countries. What happens when a person on a bicycle is injured, or hit by a car?

Vessel owners operating in navigable waters have a duty to maintain their vessels in a "seaworthy" condition. Whether an injured seaman has a claim for vessel unseaworthiness is often an issue in maritime injury litigation. "Seaworthiness" is more than a vessel's ability to travel from Point A to Point B. Courts often define the term to require that the vessel be constructed, outfitted, manned, and in all respects fit for a voyage at sea.

Photo of Benny Agosto

In 2013, the most recent year for which finalized statistics are available, 3,541 truck-related wrecks killed 3,964 people - an increase of 17.3 percent in just four years since the recession. In 2014, the number of deaths resulting from truck accidents was down slightly, but the total number of crashes and injuries increased. When the recession began in 2008, profit margins for shippers shrank and bankruptcies rose, prompting a desperate industry to step up its lobbying effort. Today, this lobbying has led to methodical and substantial changes in the trucking industry, leading to higher profits for companies, but at the expense of highway safety.
