You get into a motorcycle accident while wearing a helmet and the crash is not your fault. Another driver pulls out in front of you, but you still wind up in the hospital with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). You survive and partially recover, but the doctors warn you that TBIs don't always fully heal. When you head home, you'll have some significant changes with which to cope.

If you have ever tried to buy a piece of real estate, you probably learned right away that there are specific zoning regulations that govern land use. You can only use the property for things that are approved within that zone. A few examples of potential zones include:
Last year, one of Uber's self-driving cars hit and killed a woman who was crossing a Tempe road. The car had a driver in it who was supposed to stop the vehicle in an emergency, but she did not do so.
When your landlord will not fix a dangerous condition in your home or apartment, it can put you at constant risk. You deserve a safe place to live, and your landlord does have an obligation to make timely repairs.
