Personal Injury Triage - The Dean Standish Perkins' Way

Imagine that the facts of your case - you were rear-ended and the insurance company refuses to pay, your neck hurts and you've had to see your doctor three times since you got hit - are individual vehicles in a 10-car pile-up on I-5 N, and everyone in them is awaiting medical attention. The ambulances pull up, and the able and experienced EMTs rush out. They run from patient to patient, assessing the medical treatment each patient needs and determining who, based on severity, they must help first.

How can vigilance keep you safer during a train commute?

When your commute requires you to take the train to your job in Washington, it is important that you are aware of how to be safe in and around a train to minimize your risk of getting injured or killed. It is not unheard of for people to become distracted by their electronic devices and accidentally wander or fall onto a platform as a train is approaching. Using vigilance is one valuable way that you can protect yourself and encourage other passengers to do the same.
