Brain injuries can occur from a car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident, as well as from a fall or being struck by a blunt object. Some brain injuries result even with no direct blow to the head. The effects of a brain injury may be permanent or long-lasting and the injury may range from mild to severe. Mild brain injury may result in a slight change in alertness, while severe brain injury may lead to loss of consciousness, memory loss or loss of cognitive or executive functioning.
Construction accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, including negligence, product defects and failure to adhere to safety policies and procedures. Construction accidents may occur because of a lack of training, improper training, no safety precautions, inadequate safety measures, poor supervision, accidents involving cranes, harnesses, mechanical failures, scaffolding collapses, misuse of equipment, falling debris, electrical failures, welding accidents and fire.
Defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of injuries every year. A manufacturer or seller may be liable for allowing a defective product to injure you. Determining liability presents unique challenges and requires skilled legal counsel.
Prescription drugs treat diabetes, heart disease, depression, social anxiety disorders, and many other medical conditions. Regrettably, sometimes the drugs used to treat patients can do more harm than good. The drugs may not work effectively at treating the condition and, even worse, they may cause unexpected side effects or significant harm to the patients who took the prescribed medicine. When dangerous drugs cause injury, the manufacturers and drug companies must be held responsible.
Dog Bite and Dog Attack
Dog bites and dog attacks are vicious. The injuries can result in infections, lasting scarring and deformation. The injuries often require expensive medical treatment. Additionally, the unfortunate victim might not be able to work and earn an income to take care of those expenses. Laws exist to protect you from dog bites and dog attacks. When these laws are broken, you are entitled to compensation.
Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management. Unfortunately, medical records are challenging to understand. If you or a family member was injured as a result of medical negligence, you should know what happened and why it happened.
Premises liability occurs when a property owner fails to provide a reasonably safe premises and their failure to do so caused you injuries. To prevail on a premises liability case, the injured person must prove that the property owner failed to meet the standard of care with respect to ownership or maintenance of the property, which caused harm. Suffering an injury alone on someone else’s property does not mean that the property owner was negligent. The existence of an unsafe condition alone does not mean that the property owner was negligent. You must show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the premises was in an unsafe condition, failed to take proper steps to make the premises safe, and that you were injured as a result.
Slip and Fall Accident
A slip and fall accident occurs when a property owner fails to provide a reasonably safe premises and their failure to do so caused you injuries. Just because you slipped and fell on someone else’s property does not mean that the property owner is at fault. The existence of an unsafe condition alone does not mean that the property owner is at fault. You must show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the property was in an unsafe condition, that the property owner failed to take proper steps to make the property safe, and that you slipped, fell and were hurt as a result.
Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. Filing for Social Security Disability benefits can be a complicated and daunting process. Statistics have shown that the Social Security Administration (SSA) is more likely to approve someone who is represented by an attorney. Because social security disability can be complex, retaining legal counsel as soon as possible is critical.
Every occupation carries some risk of injury, whether from an accident on the job, the strain of repetitive motions, or occupational exposure to chemicals and other hazardous substances. Workers’ compensation insurance provides a valuable safety net for individuals who suffer work-related injuries or illness. This insurance coverage includes medical expenses and a portion of lost wages for employees who become injured or ill on the job as well as employee rehabilitation and death benefits.
Wrongful death claims require special skills to pursue because these claims are controlled by statute. In the past, a person who had been seriously injured but lived would be able to recover significant compensation for his or her economic or non-economic losses from the at-fault party, but no one could recover should the victim pass away due to his or her injuries. States have since passed laws to allow certain family members of people who have been wrongfully killed, or the decedent’s estate, to pursue recovery for their losses.
