The Difficulties Presented by a Brain Injury
A brain injury is usually caused by a sudden, powerful blow to the head, such as striking a steering wheel. Symptoms vary, depending upon the part of the brain that was injured and the severity of the accident.

Accident victims may suffer any of the following:

A mild brain injury or concussion, including temporary confusion and headaches
A moderate brain injury, including nausea, memory loss and chronic headaches
A traumatic brain injury, including convulsions or seizures, memory loss, headaches, mood swings, personality changes, or the inability to function as before
It is not uncommon for the victim of a brain injury to feel normal in the immediate aftermath of an accident. They may feel only slightly dizzy or fatigued, and refuse any medical treatment. However, this can prove to be a major mistake as the symptoms of a brain injury may not fully appear until later. By then it may be too late. It is therefore absolutely imperative that anyone who suffered some form of head injury seek the appropriate medical screening and treatment as soon as possible.

Compensation for Your Losses

Liquor Liability & Dram Shop

Choosing a Qualified Houston Dram Shop Injury Lawyer

A dram shop is a place where alcoholic beverages are sold. Under the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, the Dram Shop Act provides for two causes of action for a plaintiff’s injuries that resulted from the provision of alcoholic beverage by (1) a commercial provider to an obviously intoxicated adult or (2) any adult not authorized by statute 2.02(c)(1) to a minor under the age of 18. Tex. Alco. Bev. Code statute 2.02(b),(c).

Providing Alcohol to Intoxicated Adult – Houston Dram Shop Injury Lawyer
The purpose of the Dram Shop Act is to discourage providers of alcoholic beverages from serving alcoholic beverages to obviously intoxicated individuals who may inflict serious injury on themselves or others. F.F.P. Oper. Parters v. Duenez, 237 S.W.3d 680, 683 (Tex. 2007); Smith v. Sewell, 858 S.W.2d 350, 354 (Tex. 1993). A provider’s liability is direct because it is based on the provider’s own wrongful conduct.

Liability under the Dram Shop Act for providing an alcoholic beverage to an adult recipient does not require that the defendant’s provision of the alcoholic beverage contributed to the recipient’s intoxication. Therefore, the plaintiff is not required to prove the recipient actually drank the alcoholic beverage the defendant provided; simply proving the defendant provided the beverage is sufficient.

Providing Alcohol to Minor – Houston Dram Shop Injury Lawyer
The Dram Shop Act permits the recovery of damages from an adult who provides alcoholic beverages to a minor under the age of 18 who, as a result of intoxication, injuries another person. Tex. Alco. Bev. Code statute 2.02(c).

It is a violation of criminal law for most persons to sell or provide alcohol to a minor or to purchase alcohol for a minor. A parent, guardian, spouse, or custodian of a minor may purchase alcohol for or give alcohol to the minor if the person is visibly present when the minor possesses or consumes the alcohol.

Choosing a Qualified Houston Worker Compensation Lawyer
When to Find a Houston Worker Compensation Lawyer RJ Alexander Law PLLC
If you are hurt on the job, you need a Houston workers’ compensation lawyer to represent you. Workers’ compensation claim can be complicated and time-consuming, and your employer’s insurance company will be trying to minimize the settlement for your injuries. If you have been hurt at work, you need to find a Houston personal injury law firm that handles worker compensation cases. The Houston worker compensation lawyer RJ Alexander Law PLLC can help you file your claim.

Workers’ compensation is an insurance system that is similar to auto accident claims. Your employer pays for an insurance policy that protects them from being sued if their employees are injured. Instead, when the employees are injured, they file a claim with the insurance company, who then negotiates with the workers’ attorneys to determine the settlement grounds. Even if your employer recognizes that your injury was an accident and states that they want to make sure you are compensated fairly, it is important to remember that you will not be negotiating with your employer directly. You will be working with the insurance company, and the company’s goal is to minimize your Texas workers’ comp settlement.

There are many types of benefits that a worker can get from an insurance company. The first type of benefit is compensation for medical care. The insurance company will handle the cost of doctor’s appointments, surgeries, and physical therapy if the treatment is related to your injury. Another type of benefit is a payment for time lost from work. There are also additional benefits if a worker is killed or permanently disabled. While this may seem cut-and-dry, the insurance company will try to argue that your treatment is unrelated to your injury, that you can return to work when you truly cannot, or that your injury was not caused by your job duties. You need a dedicated and experienced Houston workers’ comp attorney to stand up for you against the insurance company and get you the maximum Texas workers’ comp payments for your injuries.

Workers’ comp injuries come in many different forms. They can be anything from broken bones to lacerations to blindness to cancer. Some of the most common injuries to workers are back injuries, knee injuries, and shoulder injuries. These types of injuries happen when a worker is engaged in physical labor, and although they are usually treatable injuries, they can permanently affect a worker’s capacity to earn a living in the future. Some of the most dangerous and even fatal types of injuries include fall injuries, head injuries, and cancer like mesothelioma from exposure to toxic substances. Whether your injury was temporary or permanent, you still deserve a fair amount of workers’ compensation payments to compensate you for your medical care and lost wages. If you have been hurt on the job in any capacity, a Houston worker compensation lawyer that can help you with your claim.

If you have been injured in a work accident and you would like to know more about Texas worker compensation law, call RJ Alexander Law PLLC firm to hire a Houston worker compensation lawyer.

AMPUTATIONS
Your Costs Are Lifelong And Should Not Be Underestimated
Serious injuries, such as amputations, require regular medical treatments, multiple surgeries and custom prosthesis in many cases. The recovery process is one that can take months, if not years. Those suffering from a significant loss, such as the loss of a leg or an arm, must endure challenges on a daily basis.

Amputations Are One Of The Most Difficult Injuries To Recover From
The loss of a limb, even a finger or toe, can be very challenging for the injured victim. From a psychological standpoint, recovery from an amputation can be a lifelong struggle.

The level of pain during the recover process can also be tremendous. The concept of phantom limb pain can also be present, meaning the pain extends beyond the amputation to where the limb used to be.

Pain can continue for a significant time period, and the body can take months to generate the same level of sensitivity and protection that it had prior to the accident.

When our attorneys bring a wrongful death suit, it addresses the tragedy of the loss of a loved one, by holding the persons or companies who are responsible for it accountable.

Whether your loved one died as the result of a fatal car crash or some other kind of injury, our attorneys will make certain the parties who are responsible for causing this enormous loss pay maximum money damages to estate of the deceased.

Short Statute Of Limitations For Wrongful Death Claims Under New York Law
In cases involving a claim for wrongful death, New York law allows a shorter time for you to bring an action, than in the case of personal injury, therefore it is extremely important that you consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible to gain a full understanding of your case and your legal options.

No insurance company is fully on your side, not even your own.

Our lawyers protect your rights and interests, and we relieve you of legal burdens, so that you are allowed appropriate time to grieve and cope with loss.

Barrie Accident Injury Lawyers

Accident injuries leave you vulnerable. In times of your greatest need, you look to your insurance carrier to uphold its duty of good faith. You may discover, however, that your insurance company is resistant to pay you what you are owed. If you persist, it may do everything in its power to minimize the value of your claim.

You can fight the battle with insurers. You do not have to do it alone. Not everyone has the energy to pursue a prolonged conflict, especially when they are hurting. That is why every day in Ontario people retain lawyers to help them. In Barrie, you can retain Ares Law, an intimate, personal service-oriented firm to help you.

Sacredness And Trust Of A One-On-One Relationship

Ares Law is small, and for good reason. The firm’s lawyers believe in an ongoing, one-on-one relationship with their clients. To us, you are not just a number. You are not just another file on someone’s desk. You are a whole person, in need of real advocacy. Our goal is to help not only you, but your entire family that depends on you.

Firm clients feel comfortable and at ease, in our offices and during the length of their legal case. Firm opponents know that we are tough and never conclude a case too early. Ares Law beats the determination of insurance companies to pay out less than what you are owed, by matching their strategy at every turn.

Barrie Speeding Accident Lawyers

Speeding is a form of aggressive driving with serious consequences. According to a 2011 Transport Canada report, 27 percent of car accident fatalities and 19 percent of injuries are caused by speeding. If you have been hurt in an accident caused by speed in Ontario, you are not alone. You can access help. Ares Law in Barrie is on your side, as the person who was an innocent victim of a crash caused by reckless driving.

Firm lawyers have one purpose: to fight on your behalf in the face of insurer opposition. There are two parts to any car accident claim in Ontario: the first is to obtain no-fault benefits. The second is a lawsuit against the speeder who caused the collision. Ares Law will walk through all aspects of the legal process, so you understand how your case is progressing and what you are up against for the long haul.


Dedicated Advocacy For Serious Accident Injury

Speeding is a dangerous activity. When a speeding car comes into contact with another vehicle, there is not enough time to react and avoid a collision. Cyclists and pedestrians, who are moving slower across crosswalks than cars on the road, may be particularly vulnerable. In addition to driving fast, speeders are often engaged in other risky behaviour. The same Transport Canada report found that one out of three speeding drivers who caused a fatal accident had also been drinking.

Extraordinary circumstances, like being the victim of a speeder, require top-notch legal advocacy. Even if you were not at fault for your accident, your insurance company may take steps to prove otherwise — and give you insufficient benefits to recover from your injuries. Ares Law is dedicated to serving injured people, and can help you get what you need.

Contact Ares Law

If you were involved in a highway accident caused by speed or other serious vehicle collision, schedule a free consultation with Ares Law. You owe the firm nothing until you obtain compensation. The number is 705-792-7887 in Barrie, or you can contact the firm online.

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

Barrie Slip-And-Falls Lawyers

Many people who are hurt in a slip-and-fall write it off as “just an accident.” They think they are alone while they recover, without legal options. That may not be the case. Often, if the fall was caused by negligence, an injured person can take legal action. In Ontario, this type of claim is based on occupiers’ liability. It means the owner of the property, or the company leasing it, did not take the right steps to ensure safety of visitors.

Slip-and-fall claims are often hard-fought by the other side. The store, city authorities or even your neighbour may refute your version of events when hit with a slip-and-fall lawsuit. Lawyers at Ares Law in Barrie are trial counsel first and foremost. This means that the firm has what it takes to mount a strong case and to see it through to its conclusion.

Everyday Hazards Causing Serious Injury

A slip-and-fall can be just that: a slip on an icy sidewalk or on a spill in a grocery store, and a fall that results in broken bones or even more serious injury. In addition to helping those who fell at the store or on slippery streets, Ares Law represents people who have been hurt as a result of:

Broken staircases
Uneven steps
Unstable handrails
Uneven flooring
Dimly lit passageways
Obstructive store displays
To see what options are available to you, it is wise to contact a lawyer. Prompt action is particularly important in the case of occupiers’ liability claims; strict timelines are in place to take legal action, and store staff may act quickly to remove evidence of a spill.

Contact Ares Law

Meeting with the firm’s lawyers is free. To arrange a consultation, contact the firm as soon as possible. The firm’s number is 705-792-7887 in Barrie, or you can use the online contact form. Ares Law represents people in and around Barrie, including throughout Central Ontario, who have suffered serious harm from slip-and-fall events.

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

Barrie Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers

Over the past few years, people in Ontario have become more aware of the serious danger caused by distracted driving. Activities that were once common, such as talking on a cellphone while driving, eating or applying makeup, are now seen as unsafe. Cautious drivers are encouraged to keep their eyes on the road, and their attention on operating their vehicles.

Injuries happen every day as a result of texting and driving accidents. The insurance companies for both drivers will take steps to gather evidence and assign fault. Ares Law can represent you, the innocent victim in the crash, to show the truth of what happened. When your recovery is at stake, you need and deserve the strongest advocacy and fair results.

Your Lawyers For Serious Injury

In September 2013, the Ontario Court of Appeal confirmed that it is illegal in Ontario to hold a cellphone while driving, even if just for a moment and even if the cellphone is turned off. This provision of the Highway Traffic Act is therefore taken very seriously, and for good reason. When someone is driving in busy traffic, it only takes a split second for tragedy to occur.

As the victim of such a tragedy, you should not have to worry about fighting with an insurance company to receive benefits. Car accidents caused by distraction can result in life-changing injuries that require extensive, ongoing care and treatment. This should be your priority and will be if you retain a law firm to work on your behalf.

Ares Law is focused on personal injury. That means the firm works for you, the injured person, and never for the insurer. To injured clients the firm provides compassion, sensitivity and personal dedication. To insurers, the firm is a feared adversary that does not buckle under pressure to settle.

Contact Ares Law

For a free consultation after a distracted driving accident, contact the firm in Barrie. The number is 705-792-7887. You can contact the firm online.

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

Bicycle And Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Cyclists and pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable people in a vehicle collision. Physically exposed, the impact can cause serious head, neck and spinal injuries. Cyclists may be thrown to the ground and experience significant bleeding from road rash. Medical recovery is the priority for these accident victims. Pedestrians and cyclists should receive prompt emergency care and ongoing treatment to ensure they have full access to the tools of recovery.

Once the reality of serious injury sets in, people hurt in a bike accident or while walking in Ontario may not know where to turn. As they were not driving, they may have complex legal questions about where to go for help with the expenses they incur when they cannot work, and the medical costs not covered by OHIP. The lawyers at Ares Law are here, in Barrie, to answer questions, provide information and be advocates for those who need assistance but do not know the steps to take after a car accident.

Helping You Navigate The Legal Maze Of An Accident Claim

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a car accident, you may have many legal options. If you know who hit you, Ares Law can take legal steps to claim on insurance and pursue a lawsuit if appropriate. Like with all car accidents, it is important to remember the details of what happened and, if possible, get the names of any witnesses to the event.

Ontario also has resources for people injured by a hit-and-run driver, or who have been hit by someone who did not have insurance. In short, if you need help, give the firm a call. Ares Law can help you find what you need to support your recovery.

Contact Ares Law

The firm helps people locally in Barrie and neighbouring communities throughout Central Ontario who have been injured in an accident while biking or in a crosswalk accident. To see if the firm can help you, call 705-792-7887 or contact the firm online.

Barrie Drunk Driving Accident Injury Lawyers

Laws have gotten tougher on drunk drivers in recent years. Novice drivers must have a blood alcohol concentration of “zero” while on the road. Experienced drivers face serious criminal and civil penalties for driving under the influence. Despite these facts, people in Ontario still drink and drive. Victims of drunk driving accidents suffer injury that affects them physically, mentally and emotionally. If you are living with the aftermath of a collision caused by impaired driving, you deserve every tool at your disposal to rebuild.

Ares Law in Barrie is a personal injury firm. This means firm lawyers do not get involved with the criminal side of any drunk driving case; the focus is solely on the people who have been hurt. As their advocates, Ares Law takes every step possible to ensure they receive the right medical care, ongoing treatment and insurance benefits to maintain their financial stability.

Strong Advocates In Complex Legal Claims

There are many steps to a legal claim following a drunk driving accident. They may include a claim on no-fault benefits from your own insurer. In the case of serious injury or fatality, it may also include suing the drunk driver who caused the accident. Since this driver may have breached his insurance because he or she was driving under the influence, however, this aspect of the legal claim has an extra layer of complications.

Ares Law will make your legal options clear and easy to understand. When you come to the firm, no one wants you to feel lost or intimidated. Staff and lawyers alike will be welcoming, helpful, compassionate and your strong advocates.

Lawyers For Accident Injuries Caused By Harsh Weather

Ontario winters are notoriously hazardous. Harsh weather conditions make safe driving difficult, and weather-related accidents are unfortunately a regular occurrence. A vehicle collision is complicated at the best of times; but when your insurance claim has the added details of bad weather, you might be questioned about your role in the crash and whether you were at fault.

Ares Law in Barrie handles complex car accident claims on behalf of injured people. Firm lawyers are experienced trial counsel who know how to handle detailed evidence. When your insurer does not provide the benefits you need and expect for you to recover, Ares Law can be the advocates you need.

Legal Advice For Complex Accident Claims

The weather can affect driver behaviour in several distinct ways. Low visibility can prevent a driver from seeing a clear path ahead. Slippery roads and high winds can cause a car to swerve, possibly into a neighbouring lane, risking collision with oncoming traffic. Prudent drivers will take steps to make up for such conditions but sometimes, your insurance company will claim you did not do enough.

There are two main types of legal cases involving accident injury caused by harsh weather conditions. One is a claim against your own insurance company for no-fault benefits. The other is suing the person at fault for the crash. In the case of harsh weather conditions, it may be appropriate to file suit against the government for inadequate maintenance of the road or highway where the accident happened.

Ares Law will take you through your legal options. In particular if suing the government is appropriate, it is essential to contact the firm right away. Notice requirements for suing municipalities and the Ministry of Transportation can be as short as 10 days. If you have been injured, you deserve to have all your legal options investigated and not lose out on the potential to file a claim because of a technicality.

Barrie Disability Insurance Claim Lawyers

Insurance should provide security for times of distress. Disability insurance, whether obtained privately or through your employer, is supposed to be there when you need it — when you cannot work due to serious illness or injury. Unfortunately, not all insurers meet their obligation to provide that peace of mind and security.

Many injured people have to be assertive with their insurers. Lawyers at Ares Law in Barrie believe no one should take on the fight alone. When the firm’s clients are facing opposition from an insurer in Ontario, Ares Law steps in to help – by preparing for trial and fighting as long as necessary to reach a fair result.

Strong Representation In Disability Benefits Litigation

People who claim on disability benefits often run into difficulties in one of two ways. Either their claim for long-term disability insurance coverage is denied outright, or benefits are paid at first but then stop after a period of time. People who have been denied or had benefits ceased know only that they are unable to work and need support. The technicalities of coverage are not their primary concern, and should not be.

Fire Loss Claim Lawyers

The loss of your home due to fire can be devastating. Not only is there the potential for serious physical injury; but the centre of your family life can be damaged beyond repair in mere moments. Home insurance should provide comfort in these times of financial and emotional difficulty. The insurance company, however, looks out for its own interest first. You may need a lawyer to look out for you and your family.

Ares Law can help you pick up the pieces, by giving you advice that you know is in your best interest. The firm is not paid until you are, so you know Ares Law’s fire loss claim lawyers in Barrie are always putting your needs first. The firm can sue the insurance company to recover what you and your family need to rebuild.

Looking Out For Your Needs First

There are many practical steps that need to happen after fire loss. Ares Law can help you through it. Firm staff and lawyers can help you with the details of a fire loss insurance claim, including cataloguing the property that was damaged in the fire. Often homeowners have to decide whether a house will be repaired, rebuilt or scrapped. Firm lawyers walk you through these difficult issues and the related legal issues.

Most important from a legal perspective is the determination of liability — in other words, who or what caused the fire. Liability will directly affect how your insurer chooses to deal with your claim. To determine liability the insurer will obtain as much information as possible and conduct its own investigation; you need a lawyer who will protect your rights, in particular if the insurer decides the circumstances of the fire are suspicious.

Contact Ares Law

Ares Law is first and foremost here to protect the interests and rights of clients. To reverse an insurance denial or to obtain assistance with other aspects of fire loss claims, contact the firm. Meetings are free of charge and obligation. The number is 705-792-7887 in Barrie, or you can contact the firm online.

Importance Of Treatment · Barrie Law Firm

After an accident many people do not see a doctor right away. Even if they do get immediate treatment, either in the emergency room or from their family physician, they may delay follow-up medical visits. For your health and the strength of your legal case, it is important for you to not only remain in touch with your doctor, but participate in ongoing rehabilitation and therapy.

Treatment helps you recover. Lawyers at Ares Law also know it is vital to defending your case. Firm lawyers in Barrie are seasoned advocates in the face of corporations and insurers who will use every detail to minimize your injuries and reduce the benefits they are willing to pay. If you are actively engaged in your medical rehabilitation, you will have the documentation you need to support your legal claim.

Following The Advice Of Medical Professionals

Ares Law assists people who are living with serious injury following car accidents, slips-and-falls and boating accidents among many others. Each of their circumstances is unique, and the treatment plan a doctor provides is tailored to each person. Participation in physiotherapy and vocational retraining, for example, might be central components to a successful recovery. Ares Law brings resources to each case; so you can access what you need to get the right diagnosis and full treatment.

Your legal claim is in large part dependent on the work you do to get better. In law, you have a responsibility to mitigate your damages; this means you have to do your part to reduce the harm that you have suffered by actively trying to get better. Not doing so can give the insurance company a reason to cease your benefits, reduce the payment amount or refuse to pay them altogether.

Contact Ares Law

Ares Law understands the importance of treatment for you, personally and legally. To get help from a lawyer at no charge to you until your claim is settled, get in touch. The number is 705-792-7887 in Barrie, Ontario, or you can contact the firm online.

1. We are a boutique personal injury firm. Please learn more about us to see what this means. The quality of our staff and the care and attention they give to each client.

3. The resources we bring to each and every case. If an MRI is needed, we get it. If a neurosurgeon is needed, we get the best one.

4. The speed with which we move files through.

5. Personal attention. We will know your life and your medical history better than you do.

Helping You Rebuild After Serious Injury

In many ways, a personal injury lawyer is more than a student of the law.

With these details, your lawyer can pinpoint what you need and fight to get it for you.

Motorcycle Accidents
Representing Motorcycle Accident Victims in the Clearlake , California, Area
When drivers of cars and trucks fail to accommodate motorcyclists, roads and highways can become dangerous places. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents involve negligence by the drivers of these other vehicles.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident – or if you have lost a family member in a fatal motorcycle crash – you deserve to learn about your rights and legal options. I am Lakeport motorcycle accident lawyer J. David Markham, and I represent clients throughout the Lake County and Mendocino County area of California. Please contact my law offices today to learn how I can help.

Injuries Resulting From a Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycles lack an outer protective layer, so there is nothing preventing a motorcyclist from flying off the bike on impact. This explains why motorcycle accidents so often result in serious, life-threatening injuries.

I represent individuals who have suffered any serious injury in a motorcycle crash:

Bone fractures
Road rash
Neck injuries
Brain injuries
Head injuries
Skull fractures
Back injuries
Spinal cord injuries
The costs associated with treating these injuries, in addition to the other costs associated with an accident can cause financial instability.

Wrongful Death
If you have lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident, you are undoubtedly going through a lot of pain. You may be concerned that consulting a lawyer about a wrongful death action will only make matters worse.

Many people in this situation, understandably, want to sort through their personal feelings and wait a while before talking to an attorney. Unfortunately, this can often lead to the loss of important evidence and greater difficulty in locating witnesses.

If you have suffered loss of support and companionship from a loved one due to an auto accident, another driver’s insurance company may legally owe you compensation.

If medical and funeral costs are giving you another burden to deal with, you may be able to get relief. Contact me for a free consultation to sort out the legalities and seek what is fair.

Clearlake Trial Attorney Focused on Your Needs
My goal as a lawyer in wrongful death cases is not to exploit your tragedy but to give you an honest assessment of whether a wrongful death lawsuit is likely to lead to you receiving compensation.

I will also honestly inform you, given my experience as an advocate for wrongful death clients in Lake County and Mendocino County courts, about what the process of a lawsuit is likely to entail. I will always respect and implement your decisions about your case rather than pushing you.

Losing a loved one in a car, truck or motorcycle accident is a sudden and tragic situation. If you talk to a lawyer about a wrongful death lawsuit, it should be someone whose focus will be on relieving your suffering to the greatest extent possible.

Biloxi Large Truck Accident Lawyers
A “large truck” is defined as any whose total weight is over 10,000 lbs. These vehicles are involved in a large percentage of traffic accidents and fatalities and, because of their size, those accidents that do involve these vehicles carry an increased likelihood of severe injury and/or death.

It is estimated that nearly 10% of all individuals injured in large truck crashes will die. Large trucks are also more often involved in “pile-ups” – multiple-vehicle crashes – than passenger cars. Large trucks are regulated by both federal and state agencies, which set rules pertaining to equipment safety and hours of the drivers.

Trucking companies are legally bound to maintain records. In event of a large truck accident, it is necessary to access and research these records. Faulty equipment, driver fatigue, and other factors may be to blame for crashes, and the careful study of records is one of the best ways to determine if negligence has occurred.

If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance, call Lumpkin & Reeves, PLLC at (228) 374-5151 or toll free (877) 377-5152 or submit an online questionnaire. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations.

Biloxi Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal Injury Law includes the physical or emotional injury or damage of personal property by another person. Legally, the injured party in such a case is allowed to seek compensation for the damages.

Another name for personal injury law is “tort” law. State and federal government enact tort laws to protect your rights. Case particulars aside, tort actions have three elements:

a legal duty between the defendant (the wrongdoer) and the plaintiff (the injured)
that duty must be breached (by the defendant)
damage must result from that breach
Citizens are expected not to harm or damage one another, including personal property. When someone harms you or your posession, they become liable to the applicable tort laws. This harm may occur through intentional, willful action or through inaction, negligence. Either way, the tort law is broken.

Intentional actions are designed to cause harm or injury. While committing the action, the person wants to harm you. A negligent action, on the other hand, results when someone fails to take the appropriate action, causing you to be harmed.

For example: a person smashes your car window with a brick: intentional action (also a criminal action, in this case). If, instead, the same person, driving carelessly, runs into your car, that is negligence. In both cases, the defendant failed in his/her duty not to injure you or your property.

“Strict liability” is another form of tort law. It is a more rigid interpretation or enforcement of responsibility for damage. Put simply, the burden of proving intent or negligence is lifted and the evidence of injury or damage is enough to prove liability. For example, if a person is injured by using a medicine as prescribed, it does not matter whether the drug company caused the injury through intent or negligence, simply that it occurred. The manufacturer is resonsible, regardless.

After the comission of a personal injury, the defendant is responsible for rectifying the situation, for compensating for damage done. This process may occur through private means, such as a settlement (often through the defendant’s insurance company). In a legal case, the court will award “damages,” the legal term for the financial equivalent of injuries sustained. Personal injury law is the legal mechanism for determining who is in the wrong, or in other words, who is “liable”, and what the liable person should have to pay for the damage caused.

Should you be the victim of a personal injury, bear these points in mind:

Seek proper medical attention, including follow-ups with the proper authorities and your own insurance company.
Contact an attorney to discuss your case.
Avoid any discussion of the matter, except with your insurance company, legal counsel, and trusted loved ones.
Cooperative fully police, you medical professionals, and your own insurance company.

Biloxi Hazardous Products/ Product Liability Attorneys
Defective, unsafe, dangerous, and hazardous products are addressed in personal injury law by product liability. Simply put, product manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers are responsible for injury and damage resulting from use of their products. This includes virtually all consumer products, food, drugs, real estate and more.

Often, product liability is subject to a classification of personal injury law called “strict liability.” This means that the usual burdens of proof of specific, intentional or negligent acts is dismissed; the simple fact that an injury occurred is proof of liability on the part of the product manufacturer or retailer.

Product liability, for the most part, assumes proper use of an unmodified product by the plaintiff. Using a product in a way other than as directed or altering the product (such as disabling safety features) may void any liability on the part of the manufacturer or retailer.

Above and beyond strict liability, distinctions of negligence and breach of warranty also exist under product liability. Regarding negligence, the company may have been inadequate (negligent) in testing and assuring the safety of its product. Regarding breach of warranty, the “warranty of fitness and freedom from defect” implied when an item is sold may be breached if the product is later found to be defective or unfit for the purpose intended.

A defective product may become so at different times during production/manufacture. Three areas are generally accepted:

Failure to warn. This refers to incomplete or inadequate directions for use and safety, which can render a safe product deadly. For example, toxicity information and directions for use on antifreeze for automobiles ensure that is it ingested by cars, not people.
Defect of design. A defect is built right into the product; it is flawed in its planning and conception. A car wheel designed with an inadequate number of bolts may lead to a wheel detatching from the car while on the highway, even though production/manufacture was flawless.
Defect of manufacture. In this case, the design is sound, but something has gone wrong during production, creating a defect that would not exist if the product were created as intended. A car wheel designed with adequate bolts that are then cross-threaded during production may lead to the same problem of a wheel detatching while on the highway, but through the fault of production rather than design.
For success in cases of product liability, the product in question shoudl be preserved, along with all paperwork detailing the product’s origin and chain of ownership.

Biloxi Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Current estimates put the number of individuals in this country experiencing spinal cord injury (SCI) each year at 10,000. SCI includes any spinal cord damage which results in loss of function or mobility. Sudden trauma or violence or degenerative disease can lead to SCI, resulting in loss of sensation and/or movement. Auto accidents currently the leading cause of SCI in this country.

SCI is either complete or incomplete. “Complete” means that the victim is completely without sensation and movement, on both sides of the body, below the level of the spinal cord injury. “Incomplete” means that some degree of sensation and/or movement remains.

Medical professionals define SCI’s with reference to the affected area of the spine. The vertebrae closested to the injury is used to identify the injury. For example, an injury to the fifth cervical (neck) vertebrae is called C-5, while the first thoracic (upper back) is T-1 and the third lumbar (lower back) is L-3.

The higher the injury on the spine the greater the potential for injury. A neck injury can lead to quadriplegia (paralysis of all four limbs), while thoracic and lumbar injuries may only cause paraplegia (paralysis of the legs). The severity of the injury determines the level of dysfunction, whether the injury is complete or incomplete.

Another effect of SCI, especially in the initial weeks and months following injury, is swelling of the spinal cord. This may lead to loss of mobility and sensation in much the same way as the physical damage to the spinal cord can, except that once the swelling subsides, those symptoms will disappear.

There is currently no “cure” for SCI. Current treatment includes stabilizing any damage to the vertebrae, preventing movement in the injured area, reducing swelling, and physical therapy. The most promising potential areas of development for treatment are those related to stem cells.
