As I write this post, I am on Cape Cod, in the early hours of July 4 2018, having spent a glorious, happy day on the Cape Cod National Seashore. I am, with thousands of other people, celebrating our nation’s Independence Day. Everyone seems happy. Yet, hidden among the pleasure, happiness and enjoyment that bring […]

Summer is usually a time when thoughts turn to cooling off and leisurely days around a swimming pool (especially during heat waves such as we’ve had here in Massachusetts recently.)

The story is also timely, since it’s summer now. Read on, and you’ll find out why. Ever visit a friend who has a pool in their back yard, on […]

Summer – it’s almost here. That’s when everyone enjoys summer barbecues, lemonade, and pool parties galore in the backyard. I’ve written in this blog previously that swimming pools bring with them inherent risks. The risks of injury are very high. Depending on the type of swimming pool injury involved, an area of law known as […]

OK – Here it is, July 2 2017 and people everywhere are celebrating the Fourth of July (in what will very likely turn out to be a very short work week this coming week – added bonus, no?) Yes, that means parades, cookouts and each outings.  I love this time of year; I’m a summer […]

A few days ago, I posted on the subject of a Massachusetts dangerous products lawsuit involving an inflatable swimming pool slide and Toys R Us, where almost $21 million was awarded in 2006 by a Massachusetts jury to the family of a woman killed in an accident due to this defective product.
