law 4/19/22

Dallas, Texas has a booming economy that is growing quickly. With all growth comes growing pains. With the increase of people comes an increase in accidents and before you know it you could find yourself on the wrong side of one. If you ever do find yourself in that difficult situation, the first thing to do is establish fault. The person who is at fault will carry the burden of liability, they are also the person who will experience the increase in premiums. Buy after a car or truck accident in Dallas just how do you establish fault? I have a few tips that might help you out.

1. What Happened Before the Accident?

If you have been rear ended, then more than likely the other driver is at fault, but what about other scenarios? It can be difficult to determine fault, but if the other driver was swerving, speeding, or using their cell phone while they were driving, that could be a clear indicator of fault. If you saw the other driver doing any of these things before a car accident in Dallas, then notify the officer on scene immediately. If not then make sure you note the activity you saw them involved in and give it to your attorney when you meet with them.

2. Are There any Witnesses?

If you are lucky, there were people who saw what transpired before your cars collided. They might have seen the other driver engaged in reckless activities, and may be willing to speak out on your behalf. Make sure you get a phone number and email address where they can be reached in case you need them to make a statement. This will be very helpful in arguing your case against the insurance company.

3. Was the Driver Ticketed?

If the other driver was written a ticket by an officer on the scene, then the other person violated a traffic law. This violation could be what led to the accident. The officer might have even named the other driver at fault on the ticket, so make sure you have all of that information to present to your attorney. If there was no officer present, then notate if you saw the other driver violate any laws.

4. How Did the Other Driver React?

The moments after an accident are jarring, and the other driver may admit that they were at fault without realizing it. If they comment that they didn’t see you or apologize then they are admitting fault, and you should note exactly what they said and at exactly what time. Taking the necessary action could make the difference between dealing with an insurance increase.

Regardless of who is at fault, you need to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. Your lawyer will make sure that all of your questions are answered, and that you aren’t blind sided into saying something you wish you hadn’t by the insurance company. Contact our experienced Dallas personal injury lawyers today, will fight for your rights and make sure that you get your car accident settlements in Dallas you deserve.

What Is Medical Malpractice?
Many medical malpractice claims involve either misdiagnosis of a medical condition, mistreatment of a diagnosed condition or failure to obtain informed consent from the patient. When we evaluate a claim, we look for evidence of negligence by the doctor, nurse or hospital.

Misdiagnosis of a Medical Condition – When you go to your doctor’s office or the hospital because of a medical problem, you expect to be treated with the best of care. You expect to hear a diagnosis and then a treatment plan that lays out a course of remedies or medication. To create that plan, your doctor will take your medical history; ask you about the duration and severity of your symptoms and then order tests and/or blood work, if necessary, to determine what your actual diagnosis is.

But what happens to you or a loved one if the doctor doesn’t follow all of the steps required in standard care and offers up a misdiagnosis? What happens if that misdiagnosis leads to further physical complications, injuries or even death?

That’s where the Glick Law Firm, PA, comes in. If you suspect that your doctor did not follow standard care procedures in diagnosing a medical condition and you’ve suffered because of it, contact medical malpractice attorney Brian J. Glick at the Glick Law Firm, PA. We will evaluate your situation and determine if you have a viable medical malpractice case.

Insurance Claims / “Bad Faith”
Do You Know Your Rights in Insurance and Financial Disputes?
An insurance policy is a contract between the client and the insurance carrier. If the insurance company fails to meet its obligations, you may be able to file a bad faith claim and receive compensation for your losses. Do not settle any insurance claim before you know your rights and have been treated fairly and honestly by the insurance company.

At Glick Law Firm, PA, we know how to fight the insurance companies. We have dedicated our careers to protecting individuals from insurance company greed. In addition, we represent people who are experiencing problems with financial advisors, stockbrokers or accountants.

What is “Bad Faith?”
When you buy insurance, you expect to get a fair deal. Should an event occur for which you have coverage, you expect your insurance company to pay you promptly and fully. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Insurance bad faith is a situation in which your insurance company fails to deal with you in an honest and timely manner. The two most common types of bad faith are:

Denial of a legitimate claim
Excessive delay in payment of a legitimate claim
Insurance policies are intricate and complex legal documents. Some insurance companies play to the fact that most people don’t read through the documents or understand what their coverage fully entails. Remember – every time an insurance company pays out a claim, they lose money, and that isn’t in their best interest.

Sometimes an insurance company will acknowledge your claim, but take an unreasonable amount of time to pay you. This is an internal situation with the company. Often, if the company delays a claim long enough, they are able to stall negative financial reports to their stockholders.

An attorney that is on your side, rather than the side of the insurance company, can really help. When your insurance company realizes that you are prepared, able and willing to go to court, it becomes in their financial best interest to settle your claim as quickly as possible. A long court case is the last thing an insurance company wants.

If you are having any type of difficulties settling a claim with your insurance company, please contact our insurance bad faith lawyer in Boca Raton today for a free consultation. Once we understand the specifics of your case, we’ll be able to help you more fully explore your legal options.

Talk To Us First
Before you accept a settlement from an insurance company or another party, it is important to consider the short- and long-term expenses of your loss. Although the insurance company may pressure you to make a decision quickly, you do not have to accept the initial offer. You have a right to consult an attorney first to make sure you are receiving adequate compensation and not signing away critical rights.

If you are being treated unfairly, we can protect your rights. Call Glick Law Firm, PA, at 866-TRIALAW (874-2529) and speak to an experienced insurance claims / bad faith attorney.

Injured by a Defective Drug or Product?
Attorney Brian J. Glick is Board Certified in civil trial law by the Florida Bar. As a civil trial law expert, he has the knowledge and skill to litigate complex product liability cases, whether they involve household appliances, vehicles, drugs, toys, tools or other devices.

The firm’s product liability practice includes:

Product liability
Manufacturing and design defects
Car rollover defects
Drug recalls
We represent injury victims and their families in injury and wrongful death claims against negligent corporations. Our experienced attorneys will fight for the compensation you are entitled to receive for losses such as medical bills, lost income, monthly expenses, and pain and suffering.

Product Liability
Product liability law involves any injury sustained from the use of a defective product. This is much more complicated than it sounds. A product can be any item which, when properly used, causes injury. An example would be a barbecue grill that catches fire or a wrongfully filled prescription drug by a pharmacy that causes serious side effects.

Manufacturing Defects / DESIGN DEFECT / Defective Product
Glick Law Firm, PA, specialize in manufacturing and design defect liability law. Any time a product has a design or manufacturing flaw, the item is considered defective. When a product you buy is defective, it can cause a range of potentially harmful problems.

It is a manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that its products are safe and fit for its intended use. This is known as product liability. When they sell defective products to the public, they can be held liable for the resulting injuries and damages. Many times, a large number of defective products are being used in the public realm at the same time. When this happens, all of the victims who have been injured or harmed by the same product can join together and bring a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer responsible.

Here are a few examples of products that have caused harm in the past:

Defective automobiles, like defective tires
Defective saws, tools, blenders and toys
Defective heart and hip replacements
Contaminated foods
A product liability claim can be brought against any party involved in the chain of manufacturing distribution. This can be the original manufacturer, the manufacturer of any component parts, the distributor or the retailer.

In the case of prescription drugs, the medical professional or pharmacy that prescribed the drug may also be legally negligent if they prescribed or misfill the wrong prescription.

If you have been injured by a consumer product or prescription drug and feel you were not properly warned of the dangers, please contact our product liability attorney today. You deserve compensation for lost wages, medical bills, pain, suffering and more. Glick Law Firm, PA, will ensure you get what law entitles you to.

Who is held accountable for product and manufacturing defects? – It depends on who is specifically proven to be negligent. This could be any party involved in the chain of manufacturing, a distributor who caused damage to a product, or even a doctor who has prescribed a drug without warning his or her patient of potential dangers.

What is informed consent? – Informed consent means that you have been made aware of all the risks and side effects involved in using a product or medication before you use it.

====================
Severe Injuries
Severe Injury and Amputations
Most severe injuries which include amputations have a long-lasting financial and medical impact. If that injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, then you deserve financial restitution to help cover the costs of lost wages, doctor bills, prescription medications and more. In some cases, you can even be awarded punitive damages to compensate for your pain and suffering.

The most common cause of severe injuries is auto accidents However, virtually any severe injury you have suffered due to someone else’s negligence is a potential case. If your injury was the result of another’s actions – whether those actions were intentional or accidental – you have the right to seek restitution from that party.

The most common types of severe injury are:

Back Injury
Burns
Brain Injury
Neck Injury
Broken Bones and amputations
The symptoms of these injuries present themselves in a variety of unpredictable ways. Additionally, nervous system injuries (back, brain and neck injury) may not manifest symptoms until weeks, months or even years after the accident.

Not all doctors are able to properly diagnose such injuries. That’s why it is important to find a doctor who doesn’t work for your insurance company. First and foremost your insurance company is a business – their overall goal is to make a profit. Investing time and money into properly diagnosing and treating your severe injury is not something they may be able, or even willing, to do.

Paralysis & Brain Injuries
Spinal injuries and brain injuries can drastically alter the lives of injury victims as well as their families. A permanent catastrophic injury changes the dynamic of the family and typically causes considerable financial hardship. If you do not seek the maximum compensation you are allowed, your family could have a very difficult time in the years ahead.

At Glick Law Firm, PA, we work to ensure our clients receive full and fair compensation for medical bills, long-term care, lost income, medical equipment, medications, modifications to homes and vehicles, and pain and suffering. Catastrophic injuries require extra treatment that may last for the life of the injury victim. We employ medical and financial experts to help calculate the present and future costs you will face. Then we pursue your claim with the insurance companies, going to trial when necessary. To schedule a free consultation with a Boca Raton paralysis lawyer, please call 866-TRIALAW (874-2529), 561-391-0448.

The Need for Compensation for Spinal and Brain Injuries
Spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia or hemiplegia will permanently change the lives of the injury victims and their families. People who suffer these injuries need lifelong treatment from specialists as well as daily care from family members or nurses. Depending on the severity of the injury, they may be unable to feed, bathe or dress themselves. Many will not be able to return to work.

Brain injury victims may also need specialized care and compensation for lost income. The type of brain injury they suffer dictates the medical treatment they need. Mild brain injuries may cause personality and mood changes while leaving most mental and physical abilities intact. Moderate brain injuries can cause more serious cognitive and physical damage as well as persistent headaches and mood disorders. A severe brain injury can result in loss of speech, vision, cognitive ability and motor function. In the worst cases, severe brain injuries may result in coma or death.

It is critical that family members receive the emotional and financial support they need after a loved one suffers a severe injury. Our goal is to make that happen.

Back Injuries
A back injury can happen to anyone. You could be in a car accident, fall, or otherwise injured due to someone else’s negligence.

But then, immediately or sometimes weeks or months later, you start to have pain in your back. Perhaps shooting sensations start to run up and down your legs. You may even begin to have trouble moving or twisting your back and you’re not sure why.

It’s quite possible that the reason for your prolonged pain and continued symptoms is that back injuries can involve damage to the spinal cord. Trauma to the back can agitate the spongy material between vertebrae. Over time this material weakens and the vertebrae begin to rub together. The result is damage to the nervous system that begins to manifests itself in a variety of neurological problems.

The most common symptoms of back injury are radiating pain and limited back movement. Some other symptoms include tingling in the extremities, pain in the arms and legs, and blurred vision.

The most common causes of back injury are:

Car accident
Bus Accidents
Pre-existing medical conditions that are improperly diagnosed or aggravated
Dangerous Premises
Truck Accident
Slip and Falls
Boating Accidents
lf you’ve been injured through no fault of your own and have subsequently developed back pain, please contact our injury attorney for a FREE CONSULTATION today. We’ll help properly determine the responsible party for your back injury and help you obtain a fair settlement from your insurance company. Even if your pain appears after you’ve already settled your claim.

======================
Burn Injuries
Severe burns are horrifying and can be extremely painful. They often require expensive, long-term health care. Intricate medical procedures, such as skin grafts, may be necessary, requiring extended hospital stays. Often, the burn victim will be unable to work during recovery.

The primary cause of burn injuries are auto accidents. Another major cause of burn are use of unsafe and defective products.

Defective products are another major cause of burns.

There are six degrees of burns with first-degree burns being the least severe and sixth degree burns being the most severe. Typically, lawsuits only involve second-degree burns or higher. It is important to contact an injury lawyer as soon as possible to help determine your best course of legal action.

If your burn is the result of someone else’s actions, or inactions, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Glick Law Firm, PA, will help you seek restitution for medical expenses, lost wages, court costs and for pain and suffering.

At Glick Law Firm, PA, we operate on a strictly contingent basis. We will never charge you anything up-front, nor will we charge you anything if we don’t win your case.

================
Slip & Fall Accidents
Broken Bones, Back or Head Injuries?
Slip-and-fall accidents are one of the most common sources of injury. While some accidents result in bumps and bruises, other slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls cause serious injuries. If you hit your head when you fall, you could suffer a traumatic brain injury. Broken ribs, arms and legs are also common fall injuries. In some cases, people injure their spinal cord, back or neck.

Boca Raton Slip and Fall Attorney
To recover compensation after a premises liability injury such as a slip and fall, it is best to work with an attorney. Proving liability for slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall cases can be challenging. At Glick Law Firm, PA, we have considerable experience with these cases and understand what it takes to get results. As your attorney, we provide compassionate service while fighting the insurance company on your behalf. For a free consultation with a Boca Raton slip-and-fall injury lawyer, please call 866-TRIALAW (874-2529), 561-391-0448 or contact us online.

The Dangers of Unsafe Property
A slip-and-fall accident can happen on surfaces that are wet, slick, uneven or unstable. Trip-and-falls may occur when an object is in the path of a pedestrian. This may include items such as fallen merchandise, power cords, garbage, tools or building materials. People also trip and fall when a walking surface is broken or defective. Broken steps, ripped or bunched carpet, missing tiles and cracked pavement are good examples of defective surfaces.

You may have encountered these problems on public or private property such as:

Hotels
Pools
Theme parks
Parking lots and parking garages
Restaurants
Gas stations
Retail, discount and grocery stores
Malls
Restrooms
Sidewalks
Stairs
Apartment complexes and homes
If the property owner’s negligence caused your injury, you may be entitled to compensation. We seek damages for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, monthly expenses, and pain and suffering.

How do I know if I am to blame for a slip and fall accident?
If it took place in your own home, there is no legal action you can take. If the fall occurred on property other than your own and the walkway was flawed or unsafe, you may have a case.

What if the owner of the property did not know it was unsafe?
He or she can still be held accountable for negligence if there is evidence he or she should have reasonably known about the danger.

=============
Premises Liability Issues
Seeking Compensation for Injuries and Other Losses
Accidents that occur on another party’s property and are caused by the property owner’s negligence are called premises liability accidents. If the accident or injury was the result of inadequate security measures, it is referred to as negligent security.

Boca Raton Premises Liability Lawyer
Premises liability and negligent security are serious issues that can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured on another party’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost income, monthly expenses, and pain and suffering. Working with an experienced personal injury lawyer can make the process easier as you focus on recovering. For a free consultation with our Boca Raton premises liability attorneys, please call Glick Law Firm, PA, at 866-TRIALAW (874-2529), 561-391-0448 or contact us online.

Hurt on Another’s Property?
Our premises liability and negligent security practice covers a range of issues, including:

Slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents
Injuries to tourists
Dangerous premises
These types of accidents can happen just about anywhere, from parking lots and gas stations to hotels, grocery stores and homes. Whether it is private or public property, you may be able to hold the owner liable for negligence resulting in injury or wrongful death.

What if I was injured on government property?
The same laws apply to injuries that occurred on government properties as other privately owned properties. The only exception is that there could be a statute of limitations concerning the amount of time you have to notify them of the injury and your intention to sue.

Are the laws different if I was invited to the property where I was injured?
Yes. An invitation to the property is taken into account during the court proceedings. If you were invited to the premises where you were injured, the owner may be liable for more in terms of damages.

What if the owner didn’t know his property was dangerous?
Owners can be held responsible for any dangerous condition on their land or property, whether they were aware of the danger or not. If they were unaware of a dangerous condition, they are considered negligent according to the law.

What kinds of properties are usually involved in dangerous premises cases?
There is no restriction as to the type of property. Cases have taken place involving hotels, restaurants, commercial and office buildings, private residences, government properties – anywhere an injury has occurred excluding the victim’s own home.

We represent Florida residents and tourists who have suffered injuries such as paralysis and brain injuries, back and neck injuries, broken bones and amputations, assault, robbery, or wrongful death from drowning. With 30 years of experience, we have handled nearly every type of injury case. You can rely on our dedication to clients and our thorough case preparation.

Truck Accidents
On Your Side After a Serious Accident
When a large truck and a passenger vehicle collide, the injuries are usually catastrophic or fatal. Passenger vehicles cannot withstand the size and weight of a commercial truck, especially at high speeds or if the truck tips over. While liability for the accident may seem clear, the trucking company and its insurance carrier will try to deny any fault.

Trucking accident victims need a tough trial lawyer on their side. At Glick Law Firm, PA, we fight the trucking company’s insurance carrier until we get results. As a trial attorney with decades of experience, Brian Glick knows how to stand up to these companies and build strong cases for our clients. You can rely on us for cases involving severe injury or wrongful death claims. For a free consultation with a Boca Raton truck accident attorney, please call 866-TRIALAW (874-2529), 561-391-0448 or contact us online.

Trucking Accidents Can Be Complex
All large commercial vehicles can be dangerous in an accident, from cargo vans to interstate carriers such as:

Semis
18-wheelers
Tractor-trailers
Sea-land container trucks
Tanker trucks
Cement trucks
Construction vehicles
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations as well as state laws govern the trucking industry. The FMCSA places limits on the number of hours a driver can work without a break for rest. It also requires regular safety and maintenance checks for the vehicles. After a trucking accident, however, it is not unusual to discover that the trucking company or driver violated these regulations.

The firm will investigate the accident to determine the cause. We may work with experts who can reconstruct the accident and examine the truck, the safety and maintenance record, and the driver’s logbook. If the driver or trucking company violated state law or FMCSA regulations, we will work to prove their liability.

The victims of these collisions often suffer severe injuries such as:

Brain injuries
Back injuries
Paralysis

In the worst cases, wrongful death is the result of the accident.

Victims of catastrophic accidents often need long-term care from specialists. They may suffer temporary or permanent disability and be unable to return to work. The cost of such accidents may be in the millions of dollars.

Bus Accidents
There are two types of bus accidents related legal situations:

You were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident.
You were driving or riding in a passenger vehicle that collided with a bus.
An auto accident lawyer with the Glick Law Firm, PA, can help in both instances.

If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident, obviously the accident was not your fault. You may still deserve compensation for injuries sustained through no fault of your own. Legally, however, you must prove negligence on the part of the other parties, which can include the bus driver, the owner of the bus, and the operators of any other vehicles involved in the collision.

“Negligence” is a legal definition involving the comparative inattention towards a potentially dangerous situation that a reasonable, prudent person would have avoided. Proving negligence is not something easily done. That’s why you need an attorney on your side. Glick Law Firm, PA, has the resources and skills necessary to investigate your bus accident-related injuries and subsequent legal claims.

If you were driving a bus, or were a passenger in a vehicle that collided with a bus, you should also hire legal representation. It can be difficult to obtain compensation from a bus company after a bus accident, because it’s difficult to prove who was legally responsible. The negligent party could be the bus driver, the owner of the bus company, the bus maintenance supervisor, or a combination of these people.

Frequently Asked Bus Accident Questions

Fortunately, if you enlist Glick Law Firm, PA, you enlist an experienced lawyer. We’ll help determine who was at fault, why, and what settlement you deserve. Then we’ll pursue that settlement and, as with all our cases, we’re fully prepared to go to trial and win.

Accidents involving boats and other recreational watercraft can happen because of issues such as:

Capsizing
Sinking

Railroad & Train Accidents
It is fairly often that we read about some type of accident involving trains and the railroads. The three most common types of train accidents are:

Derailment – when the train leaves the track and damages people or property
Collision – when the train damages people or property in either a properly or improperly operating railroad crossing
Environmental – this is when a train accidents results in toxic cargo – solid, liquid or airborne – entering the ground or atmosphere
Due to the size and sheer weight of even a single train car, the destruction that can result from a train accident can be severe, if not deadly. In order to receive a settlement from any injuries suffered as the result of a train accident, you must prove that the responsible party was negligent.

The responsible party can be:

The actual train conductor
The owner of the train company, who is ultimately responsible for the proper maintenance and safety of the train
Some other party – such as another driver – depending on the specifics of your situation
Investigating a train accident to its fullest requires someone with years of experience and a wide range of resources. Frankly, without a personal injury lawyer on your side, you don’t have much chance of getting a settlement for medical bills, damages and injuries that is truly in your best interest.

Railroad Disasters
When railroad companies act responsibly and meet their safety obligations to passengers and the public, railroad disasters are rare. Unfortunately, as budgets are slashed by corporations and by government overseers, safety personnel may be cut back, inspections may be hurried or even eliminated, and safety suffers.

If safety suffers, hundreds of people can be killed or injured in railroad disasters. Glick Law Firm, PA, can make the difference between devastation and the justice that injured victims and their families deserve.

Wrongful Death
Put 30 Years of Experience on Your Side During This Difficult Time
If you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, you know that money cannot undo the damage that has been done. However, you also know that you and your family may be facing serious financial difficulties in the aftermath of this tragedy. Will you be able to pay funeral expenses and monthly bills?

Bringing a wrongful death claim against the negligent party is a way to secure financial compensation for your family. It is also a way to seek justice for your loved one. Holding an individual or corporation responsible for its actions may prevent the same thing from happening to another family in the future. You will still have suffered a terrible loss, but some people find comfort when their loved one’s death has an impact on safety regulations, personal responsibility or corporate policy.

Medical bills
Funeral expenses
Lost future income for dependents
Emotional distress
Depending on the specifics of the case, damages may also be awarded as a punitive measure against the negligent party.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
In Florida and depending on the type of case, the following people can file wrongful death claims:

Spouses
Children
Parents
Siblings
A “wrongful death” is described as any death that is another person’s fault. The most common cause is auto accidents, Roll over, unsafe products, unsafe premises, truck accidents, bus accidents, marine accidents, medical malpractice accidents, railroad accidents although any other type of death is a potential wrongful death case, as well. Survivors of the deceased typically file the lawsuit in order to seek financial compensation. The amount awarded is based upon the deceased’s projected potential earnings and medical costs, as well as emotional anguish.

While someone usually files a wrongful death case in the immediate family, other people may file a lawsuit in special situations. For instance, if the litigant is under 18, a guardian ad item is usually appointed to conduct legal matters on their behalf.

Also, stepchildren and other non-adopted children can also be awarded certain rights regarding wrongful death lawsuit filings. Much of who is allowed to file suit is dependent upon the specifics of the situation.

What sort of compensation can I receive?
It depends on the situation. Generally, the deceased’s projected future earnings are calculated, and then divided proportionally by the number of dependents. Compensation varies, however, based on how the person died. Additionally, punitive damages for pain and suffering can be awarded.

What if the death occurred in a medical setting?
Wrongful death claims are still applicable. For more information, please view the medical malpractice page.

How much does a wrongful death lawsuit cost?
Nothing. Our consultations are free, and if we take your case, you won’t pay us until it has been resolved.

==================

Have you been injured, but are hesitant to discuss with a personal injury lawyer because you do not have any money? Choosing a personal injury attorney mostly isn’t as expensive as working with other sorts of lawyers. Here are many tips to remember as you interview as well as talk with accidental injuries law firms:

Meetings Are 100 % Free

Accidental injuries lawyers do not bill you for the chance to discuss your case. You may enter, explain what went down, as well as converse the pros and cons of your situation, as well as how much the lawyer thinks your case may be worth and just how much time it might take to get benefits.

Law Suits Are Undertaken “On Contingency”

Car accident law firms will generally take your case on what is known as a “contingency fee basis.” You aren’t required to pay for any attorney’s charges until you recover against the party at fault or their insurance firm. When there is no recovery in your case, you do not pay any lawyer’s charges. In the event you do arrive at a settlement, the attorney then charges a share of your overall relief for attorney’s fees.

The exact contingency portion you will be billed differs from one location to another and from one sort of suit to another. Percentages also sometimes vary according to how much of a recovery danger the law firm thinks.

If you cannot choose a law firm to take your personal damage suit on a contingency fee basis, some attorneys will pursue a law suit charging an hourly fee, invoiced monthly. The lawyer would be paid this amount no matter whether you are successful in collecting on your damage. However be careful that failing to find a law firm to take your damage law suit on a contingency charge basis is generally a sign that you do not have a very good claim.

W****ver payment structure both you and your lawyer agree with, there are costs which are incurred in following a lawsuit that should be paid for.

Getting Your Expenses Paid While You Go

Personal injury attorneys generally pay the expense of putting together your lawful claim, such as:

  • Copies of police records
  • Medical records
  • Office expenses such as copying
  • Deposition fees
  • Court submitting fees
  • Investigator fees
  • Expert witness fees

The lawyer pays these expenses as they crop up, after this you reimburse the attorney for these charges from your pay out. It is obviously a risk on the attorney’s part, so it is a good sign that the lawyer considers you have a strong lawsuit. In some law suits in some states in America, a law firm might agree not to request you for reimbur*****t in case your claim does not produce a settlement.

It is important in case you make an agreement with a law firm to advance expenditures which you tack down how and when the expenses will be paid back. Commonly, a lawyer’s contingency fee is dependant on the gross settlement sum, prior to charges are subtracted.

It is regarded illegal in some states in America for a lawyer to advance the charges of your medical care. Nevertheless, a great personal injury attorney may be able to ***ist you in finding resources of short-term financial loans if you cannot borrow from buddies or relatives to pay your medical expenditures.

When You are Not Satisfied With Your Attorney

Individual injury litigation is often slow, and if you’ve been injured you’re likely to have fiscal demands to decide the case as soon as you can. For many individuals, this means discontentment and frustration with their attorney. If you’re worried about the improvement of your case, get an appointment to talk with your lawyer, and be honest regarding the level of your annoyance. Inquire specific queries about when you might anticipate to see results, and what the lawyer sees as the holdups in settlement.

If you are not happy with the replies you get from your law firm, there is nothing wrong with talking with another law firm for a “second opinion.” When you interview one more lawyer, listen very carefully to how the attorney responses your questions regarding how he or she might deal with the case in a different way.

If you choose to switch law firms, you will want the fresh law firm to contact your current attorney to make the arrangements. Your current attorney is not permitted to do anything whatsoever for transferring the case which can harm your case. The lawyers will work out the details of the record transfer, as well as manage any fiscal agreements that must be made. If as well as how much you’ll owe your present law firm would depend on:

  • How far you’ve advanced in your case
  • How much work your current attorney has put in
  • State laws

In a few states, law firms are permitted by law to put a lien on your court file for the money you owe them when switching lawyers, with the lien to be paid for when the claim settles.

Transparent correspondence is the key to working with your attorney. If you are interacting, your law firm will know what your anticipations are and can keep you updated in the process. Cooperating with your law firm is the simplest way to ensure that your personal injury suit will be successful.

Crashes Caused by Speeding Trucks

Truck drivers that speed or travel too fast for road and weather conditions are most likely the biggest cause of truck smashes. An excellent personal injury lawyer in GA is going to know how to figure out if speed became a contributing factor in a truck crash. If exceeding the speed limit brought on the smash, a law firm should do their best to recover comprehensive compensation for the client. Find a legal professional with years of practical experience with truck accident cases.

If you’ve been hurt because of a truck accident, speak to a law firm who can investigate your case and decide if the speed of the truck would have been a contributing factor.

Types of Accidents Caused by Speeding Trucks:

  • Inability to stop and prevent a collision
  • Driving too fast on rain-slicked highways, hydroplaning
  • Jackknifing because the driver lost control
  • Flipping due to the fact the driver lost control of overloaded truck while driving to fast
  • Colliding with the car ahead
  • Losing control and leaving the roadway

A lot of speed-related incidents are a result of a combination of factors such as a driver hurrying to meet a delivery deadline. Speed also exaggerates the consequences of other causes – brake failure combined with excessive speed will be much more hazardous than brake failure at regular speeds. A tire blowout at high speed can make a truck more difficult to manage than it would be at a lower speed. A tired driver who travels too fast is more likely to lose control of the truck.

Most of the time, the law firm should check out the motorist’s record for speeding violations, use an accident reconstructionist, video the scene and ****yze the damage to the truck to uncover proof of too much speed. A skilled personal injury lawyer will interview witnesses and talk with first responders. Furthermore, the personal injury attorney should really review the driver’s log to determine if the trip distance was in line with posted speed limits. Following a thorough evaluation, the lawyer can determine whether too much speed was a contributing factor to the incident which resulted in the client’s injuries. The personal injury attorney should then do their best to recoup full compensation for the client’s healthcare fees, lost earnings and damages for personal injuries.

Speak with a good GA personal injury attorney who knows how to investigate accidents caused by speeding trucks.

Is it just me or do the traffic lights switch a little too quickly? I can’t count the number of times I’ve been headed up or down a street and watched someone speed across the intersection while my light was turning green. This usually happens, of course, as the intersecting street’s traffic light goes from yellow to red, and drivers who are either going too fast to slow down in time or just want to make the light don’t make it in time. In my opinion, people speeding up to beat the red light make up the majority of the problem. I say this because you can usually hear their engine rev as they step on the gas at the last second. It’s a dangerous situation and I’m surprised I haven’t witnessed more car accidents – although they do happen.

Maybe I just seem to notice the problem more in this area, but this always seems to happen where busy streets cross. I consider it a good driving practice to brake early and just sit out the red light no matter where you are, but I think this is particularly important around busy intersections. People will always try to beat the red light. It seems to be a nationwide phenomenon. In general, though, it seems a lot of the traffic lights in the city could use a little more wait time to help keep any of these last-dash drivers from colliding with other cars coming across the intersection on a green light.

Defensive driving is always the best method of avoiding accidents and injuries from an automobile crash. Avoid the accident in the first place, and you don’t have to worry about any of the other complications (including lawsuits, insurance claims, finding a loaner car, getting arrested, on and on). Even the best drivers, however, can become involved in an accident caused by someone else’s careless driving or other circumstances, not under their control. In a case like that, you’ll be grateful for modern safety improvements like stability & traction control, blind-spot alerts, and anti-lock brakes, but let’s not forget the pioneer’s seat belts and airbags.

Airbags have been standard equipment in automobiles in the United States for years. The article that follows explains some basic information that you may or may not know about the invention, function, and usefulness of airbags in regards to our safety while driving.
Car airbags have become almost a standard fitment on today’s vehicles, yet the nearest most of us get to coming into contact with one is watching the TV footage of them being tested under laboratory conditions.

This, of course, is a good thing, but it’s important to appreciate how, in the event of a sudden impact, an airbag can protect us from potential harm. Airbags were first fitted to a car in the 1950s, but the early variants had limited success, due to them using compressed air, which could not inflate the bag quickly enough to make them effective in a high-speed crash. Ex-US Navy industrial engineer John W Hetrick designed the first air-cushion which we would recognize as an antecedent of the modern airbag, working in conjunction with many of America’s leading carmakers, while in Japan, Yasuzaburou Kobori was awarded patents in 14 countries for a design he devised in 1963 but it had still not been widely applied when he died 12 years later. The airbag requires some form of detonation in order for it to be able to release the gas which fills the bag and thereby protects a car’s occupants from hitting any of the hard components on its dashboard. This explosion is triggered when electronic sensors in the car detect that it is slowing down at least a minimum rate. These sensors activate a switch, which then completes an electrical circuit, and in turn sets off an explosion inside the airbag, causing it to inflate. In essence, it is like a sudden shock that causes the detonation of a bomb. The explosion causes the airbag to be very quickly filled with nitrogen, which inflates it at such pressure that it breaks out from the compartment in which it is housed and protects the part of the occupant’s body that it is intended to shield. The exterior of an airbag is made of a fabric similar to nylon, which, by all reports, has quite an abrasive surface. This is caused by the hundreds of tiny ventilation holes in the bag, which serve to let the bag deflate quickly after it has been deployed and done its job. The gas in the airbag simply escapes through these holes, and it deflates slowly once it has provided the cushioning effect which is needed to help prevent injury. The positioning of airbags is carefully designed to be the optimum for protecting parts of the body where the car occupant’s bones are at greatest risk of being broken through coming into contact with the hard surfaces and components of the vehicle’s interior. Therefore, airbags have been developed to protect many areas inside a car, and today are commonly fitted at head or chest level directly in front of each passenger, in the door sills so that they can deploy in the event of a side-impact, to the car’s B-pillars (the vertical strip which runs between the front and rear doors), and in the roof lining so that they descend to provide protection for the heads of the vehicle’s occupants. Many people are surprised that airbags will be activated at relatively low speeds, but it is the case that many minor injuries are prevented by the use of these bags, simply because greater injuries are often caused by a car’s occupants coming into contact with interior fittings of a car than by the impact of the car with another object itself.

DEFENSIVE DRIVING SCHOOL

Texas state law permits drivers to take defensive driving to dismiss one traffic ticket every 12 months. The State of Texas requires defensive driving online courses to take a minimum of 6 hours to complete. In compliance with the state, our Texas Defensive Driving course is 5 hours of material with 1 hour of total break time and may be completed at your own pace.
If you complete a Defensive Driving course, your insurance company will not find out about your ticket and the DMV will not access a point against your license. You are not eligible to take a defensive driving course for the following violations:

Passing a school bus or not stopping for one.
Not having car insurance when you drive.
Construction zone violations.
Speeding that exceeds 25 mph above the limit.

Sometimes an attorney can get traffic school when you cannot. Strange, but true.

If you have no points against your license and you are charged with driving at less than the state maximum speed, a violation of the Basic Speed Law, and radar or laser was involved, you should seriously consider fighting the ticket.

The reason for considering going to trial is because the police officer can legally hide and use his radar or laser device. However, the police officer will have a very, very difficult time proving the case at trial. The reason it’s so tough to get a conviction at trial is that there are many powerful laws, that if used, and the judge obeys the law, your chances of winning at trial are excellent!
The police officer is not a prosecutor, only a witness for the prosecution. Most courts will not have a prosecutor against you. The police officer is not a lawyer and will not be prepared, and can not argue against the tough and excellent laws that favor you.

Most police officers only have to contend with people representing themselves who will not know all the laws that make the case so hard to prove. Most of the time, its like shooting fish in a barrel. Go to court sometime and watch how often a defendant representing him or herself is found not guilty. It’s pretty sad.

My law practice has been devoted to learning and using our great laws in defending people like you. The law is so good, getting a dismissal happens in just about every case I take to trial. I believe that if you are faced with a case and the radar/laser ticket says your speed was within the limit or less (not a school zone, business district, or local road) you should strongly consider retaining a competent, experienced traffic lawyer and go to trial.

There is wisdom in going to trial and saving your defensive driving option for the tough case that is hard to win. I’m afraid that it is all too common for judges to side with the police officer when a law defense isn’t used but the case turns on the courts weighing your testimony versus the police officers.

The judge will have a hard time ignoring a law defense that compels him to find you not guilty.
I know those laws and will bring up everyone that applies in your case. Let’s go to trial.
Send me an email or call me if you want further information or just to encourage me to keep fighting the good fight for justice under the law.

Our privilege to drive is so very important. Insurance companies will raise premiums when we get points against our license. I suggest you treat a moving violation very seriously. Some insurance companies will not insure you if you have two points within a 12 month or longer period.

Most of my clients are motorists who have a problem with DMV points or getting insurance.
If you have no DMV points against your license in the past 12 months be sure you make an informed and intelligent decision before you choose to attend traffic school.

Consider this. You have no DMV points, you were driving the speed limit or less and are charged with a laser/radar. Let’s say you hired me and I brought all my great defenses and the judge ignored all the law and found you guilty after one of my ones to two hour-long trials. You are assessed one DMV point; you’ve paid me, and the court fine.

You took your best shot and still lost! However, you didn’t roll over and plead guilty, you and your lawyer fought the good fight and didn’t make it easy for them! I’m a true believer in the power of the laws that favor the defense and make it very tough for a police officer and judge to convict you in a case.

Why plead guilty! You will be assessed one DMV point and the fine. What happens when you pick up another moving violation? I win a lot of those cases because I can find all the laws and dig out all the facts and present your case very persuasively in court.

Let me offer a very possible future scenario for you to consider. You are driving on a freeway and the flow of traffic is traveling faster than the state maximum speed. You are thinking about your world with its concerns, considerations, and joys. A Highway Patrolman sees your car the cluster of cars that are in the flow of traffic. Being in the flow of traffic is no defense. Any car in the flow can be given a citation. The next time you are cruising along on a freeway, in the flow of traffic and EXCEEDING the speed limit, you are fair game for a ticket.

Medical Malpractice

I receive over 250 requests to evaluate potential medical malpractice claims a year. Most of these requests appear to have valid claims against a healthcare provider for errors in providing medical services or failure to provide services. In most situations, in order to properly evaluate a potential claim, records need to be obtained and the records need to be reviewed by a medical expert. The cost of time and money to obtain records and have them reviewed generally is between $1,500 and $2,500. About one in fifty of these potential claims appear to be “economically viable”.

It is therefore essential that I pick through the requests and evaluate only those that have a high probability of being “economically viable” unless the potential client pays for the evaluation. To properly evaluate all apparently valid claims that I receive, I would be spending about $500,000 a year ($2,000 X 250). From years of experience, I know that I will only find about five cases out of 250 that will be “economically viable”. “Economically viable” means that the chance of winning and the amount of the potential award are high enough to offset the enormous costs of time and money to pursue the case.

The cases that are potential “economically viable” are those cases that are the most outrageous, include clear liability on the part of the healthcare provider, and whose “economic damages” are in excess of a million dollars. The reason that the threshold for “economically viable” is so high is due to the roadblocks to medical malpractice lawsuits created by the healthcare industry and its insurance companies to keep YOU from successfully pursuing just and proper claims against healthcare professionals. Who benefits from this law? Who is prejudiced by this law? Who do you think was behind getting the legislature to pass laws that DO NOT hold healthcare providers liable for their errors in the same way as every other professional?

What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other healthcare provider breaches his or her duty to a patient to perform treatment in accordance with the “standard of care”. The “standard of care” requires that a healthcare provider exercise adequately the skill, knowledge, and care ordinarily possessed and exercised by other members of the profession acting under similar conditions and circumstances.

What can I recover in a Medical Malpractice Case?
As in any other personal injury case, the damages which can be recovered in a medical malpractice case fall into two classifications: “special damages” and “general damages”. “Special damages, or “economic”, damages, are the “cost” of medical care, the “cost” of special medical devices, “costs” the plaintiff will incur in on order to continue to function, the loss of future earnings, and other “out of pocket” expenses/losses. “General Damages” or “non-economic” damages, are the compensation to the plaintiff for the pain, suffering, disfigurement, embarrassment, loss of enjoyment of life, and so on.

Legislative Limit on “Non-Economic/General” Damages
The Texas Legislature limited the plaintiff’s ability to recover “non-economic” damages to $250,000. No matter how much pain the plaintiff has/will suffer, no matter how their future life has been altered, no matter the disfigurement, no matter that they will never walk again, hold their child, or enjoy the normal functions and joys of life, the limit on “non-economic damages” is $250,000.

Proving Medical Malpractice
It is expensive to gather and present the evidence needed to prove that a provider had fallen below the standard of care. Plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases need to hire expert witnesses to testify on the issues of (1) the “standard of care”; (2) the provider’s breach of that standard; (3) the causal relationship between the negligence and the injuries caused; and (4) the cost of the future care for the injuries caused; and (5) any loss of earnings over the lifetime of the plaintiff. Most plaintiffs cannot afford the cost of hiring these experts ($50,000 – $100,000+), especially at a time when they are dealing with the changes in their life caused by the malpractice. Plaintiffs are left to rely on attorneys to advance these litigation costs in the hope that the recoveries in their cases will repay those costs. The only part of the recovery by the plaintiff that can repay the costs without compromising that plaintiff’s future medical care, nursing care, equipment needs, or lost income is the “non-economic damages” portion of the recovery which has been limited by Texas law.

The Economics of a Medical Malpractice Case
When considering the costs of pursuing a medical malpractice case ($50,000 to $100,000+ in costs) plus attorneys fees and the projected outcome of a jury award, it becomes apparent that the only “economically viable” medical malpractice cases are those with very large “economic damages”.

What about a Death caused by Medical Malpractice?
In cases involving a death, the same basic analysis applies like any other personal injury case, except for the non-economic damages and the attorney’s fees. Non-economic damages remember are limited to $250,000. In addition to non-economic damages, the hires are entitled to recover the incurred medical and funeral expenses as well as loss of income that they would have otherwise received but for the death. This situation results in most death cases of a relative that was not supporting someone, being not “economically viable”, even though life has been wrongfully taken.

Why are Plaintiffs Law Firms reluctant to take Medical Malpractice Cases?
In the vast majority of cases, the profit margin is too low or non-existent. It is much more expensive to pursue medical malpractice claims than it is for almost every other type of personal injury claim with the exception of products liability claims against automobile manufacturers and drug manufacturers. The amount of work required by the plaintiff’s law firms in a medical malpractice case is as high as in auto and drug manufacturer cases. The plaintiffs’ law firms don’t want to work on and invest their money in cases that are substantially more difficult, are substantially riskier, and pay substantially less. Generally, juries are much more likely to hold an automobile or drug manufacturer accountable for their wrongdoing than they are the local doctor or healthcare provider.

What are my options?
If I believed your claim was “economically viable”, meaning it includes clear liability and/or outrageous conduct on the part of the healthcare provider and “economic damages” are in excess of a million dollars (medical expenses and lost income), I would have undertaken an evaluation of your claim at my expense and you would not have received this letter. However, I do not believe that the claim that you presented to me is “economically viable” for my firm to take on.

I suggest that you shop with other law firms. See if another attorney evaluates your claim differently than I do. Your other option is to pay a law firm to fully evaluate your claim. Some law firms will fully evaluate medical malpractice claims for a fee, generally $1,000 to $5,000 depending upon the complexity of the facts. We do not evaluate claims for a fee. If I thought it was a good idea for you to spend your money on an evaluation, I would have spent mine. If you want a full evaluation for peace of mind, then it may be worth the cost to you to pay a law firm to fully evaluate your claim.

I think you have misjudged my claim.
If you believe that I have misjudged your claim, please bring to my attention any facts or circumstances that I may have not properly considered.

Please Keep In Mind
Please keep in mind, in Texas for medical malpractice claims in almost every situation (other than minors), failure to file a lawsuit within two years of the injury results in the loss of all ability to pursue legal rights through the court system. Further, please keep in mind, that until I formally accept a case (a written retainer agreement is signed), I am not your attorney nor am I representing you. The fact that we may be corresponding about possible representation does not make me your attorney.
