Circus Acrobats’ Plunge May be Due to Faulty Carabiner Clip

It has been almost three months since the accident at a Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus event that sent shockwaves throughout the country. The acrobats had practiced and were, by their own reports, prepared for the unique ‘hair-hanging’ stunt they execute each day without incident. This stunt calls for eight women to hang in chandelier formation from their hair and perform a combination of choreography “…including spinning, hanging from hoops, and rolling down wrapped silks, all while being suspended 35 feet in the air by their hair alone…” Included in the feat is a session where the weight of three girls is held by the hair of one. It was said to be an amazing exhibition – when … Continue reading

Los Angeles Dodgers Partially Responsible for $18M Verdict in Beating of Fan

Baseball fans love the arrival of spring; going to the game, sitting in the stands, cheering on your favorite team, enjoying hot dogs and popcorn and the general camaraderie of others who share your passion. For many, there is no better way to spend a spring afternoon. That was the case for Bryan Stow, Louie Sanchez, and Marvin Norwood; three men whose lives were forever changed after the March 31, 2011 game between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan, wore his jersey to show support for his team. It has been reported that throughout the game Stow had several drinks. It was also reported that there was a verbal altercation with … Continue reading

Teens Crash Jet Skis in West Palm Beach

It sounds like something out of an action movie, but a jet ski accident June 28 was all too real—and had tragic consequences. Two teenagers fled authorities on stolen jet skis and ended up crashing into rocks, getting badly injured in the process. The teens had apparently stolen the jet skis earlier in the day, but it was nightfall when the Palm Beach Sherriff’s Office (PBSO) was first tipped off. A PBSO marine unit heard the jet skis in the dark, and went to investigate. Jet skis are prohibited at night, largely because riding at high speeds in the dark is not safe. But when the PBSO officers came upon the teens, the two decided they would rather run than … Continue reading

Navy SEAL Death Raises Training Safety Questions

Accident attorney Michael Steinger says the family deserves answers CORONADO, CA – A Navy SEAL was killed in a parachuting accident during training last week. San Diego accident attorney Michael Steinger says that even in military accidents, victims and their families have rights. Chief Special Warfare Operator Bradley Cavner had been a SEAL commando for nearly 10 years according to San Diego 6 News (retrieved 06.30.2014). He died during a training exercise in El Centro, although the Navy has not offered many details. All military personnel accept a high level of risk, Steinger said, but when a death or injury is caused by an accident rather than enemy fire then they have legal protections like any other accident victim. “I … Continue reading

Preventing Tragic Outcomes – Child Safety Seat Tips

A report out of Imperial, California illustrates the importance of a properly-installed child safety seat and the protection it can provide in the event of an accident.

Window Screen Gives Way in San Diego Youngster’s Death

Summer is here and that means open windows to catch cool breezes. But if you are the parent, guardian or babysitter of a small child, those windows can also be a source of tragedy. This became all too clear in San Diego last week for a family whose 11-month-old died. The little girl fell from a third-floor window of her family’s house, and although she was rushed to the hospital, she was pronounced dead on arrival. This isn’t the kind of case we usually see in the news. The child wasn’t doing anything seemingly dangerous and the parents were not guilty of any wrongdoing. It’s an accident in the truest sense of the word—but it was, nonetheless, preventable. When the … Continue reading

Scarred Child Never Asked To Leave KFC

Attorney Michael Steinger says there are better ways to pay for a surgery than to lie to the public. JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI – THE tale of a scarred three year old girl being booted from a KFC restaurant is likely a fake, according to new evidence that emerged in the last week. Attorney Michael Steinger of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene says that dog bite victims don’t have to resort to lying to receive help.   Victoria Wilcher, who was badly wounded and scarred in a dog attack in April, was supposedly thrown out of KFC because her face “scared other diners,” according to her grandmother. But the story is contradicted by video and other evidence according to Fox 8 News (retrieved … Continue reading

Recall of Foster Farms Salmonella-Tainted Chicken

As a nation, we love chicken! Chicken is usually considered a healthy protein option and can be prepared in a myriad of ways. For many people, it is the ‘go-to’ dinner meal. There are even restaurant chains that showcase chicken as their primary menu item. According to information from the National Chicken Council, chicken consumption in the United States has gone from 70.4 pounds per capita for 1994 to 83.5 pounds per capita in 2014. Our high rate of consumption makes it extremely important that we can trust that our food supply is free from illness-inducing contaminants. California-based Foster Farms has recently announced a recall on salmonella-tainted chicken. The chicken has been sold under the Foster Farms name as well … Continue reading
