Pikachu and Personal Injuries: The Dangers of Pokémon Go

Posted by Jamison Mark on Aug 6, 2016 3:00:00 PM

 

Pokémon Go is an augmented-reality video game that lets players use their cell phones to embark on real-world adventures. To play, you open the game and go outside for a walk. Like a scavenger hunt, you search for virtual “monsters,” called “Pokémon,” and supplies that will help you catch them and earn points. Your phone uses its GPS navigation to guide you to local landmarks, stores, and other sites to gather these items. Players meet up at locations called “gyms” to pit each other’s Pokémon against each other in battles for supremacy. The game encourages people to get out of the house and exercise while it shares educational and historical tidbits about the various destinations they visit.

When Should You File Suit for Personal Injuries?

Posted by Jamison Mark on Apr 22, 2016 2:56:00 PM

 

Whether you’ve been injured in an automobile collision, bicycle accident, workplace incident, slip and fall, or other situation, your first priority is treating your injuries. But after immediate treatment, many injuries linger for days, weeks, or years. If you’re still getting medical care, chiropractic treatment, or therapy, you may be hesitant to begin legal action to recover for your injuries. However, many claims have time limits called statutes of limitations. These periods are set by law, and when they expire, you may lose your right to recover from the individuals or companies responsible for your injuries.
