HEAD INJURY LAWYER

A brain injury is a catastrophic injury from which victims literally can never fully recover. Unlike most body tissues, the brain can’t regenerate its cells. Once cells are damaged or connections between them are broken, the functions they perform are simply lost unless the brain can learn to perform them in new ways. Victims may have permanent problems with their movement, senses, emotions or cognitive abilities, or even changes in personality. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.4 million Americans sustain some kind of traumatic brain injury every year, with about 235,000 requiring hospitalization and 50,000 more dying. Falls and car accidents are the most common causes of brain injuries, but these injuries can be caused by any blow to the head, including sports injuries and gunshot wounds. Thousands more sustain non-traumatic brain injuries because of disease, stroke or oxygen deprivation, sometimes due to medical malpractice. About 5.3 million people in the United States — two percent of our population — need permanent, daily help with everyday tasks because of a brain injury.

PRODUCT LIABILITY

In California, there are two main legal theories one can base a product liability lawsuit upon negligence and strict liability. A suit on the grounds of negligence requires the injured party, or plaintiff, to prove the defendant’s negligence in the creation or manufacture of the product in question. Negligence is any act or failure to act that causes the individual or company to breach its duties of care to consumers. For example, the company may have been negligent in its training procedures, manufacturing regulations, or safety protocols, resulting in a defective product. Strict liability laws allow an injured party to sue for damages without having to prove the manufacturer’s negligence. Regardless of whether the defendant was negligent in the creation of the good, it will be liable for damages that a defective product causes if it has one of the three main types of defects: inherent design flaws, manufacturing errors, or marketing defects. Design flaws are mistakes the company makes in the design of the item, such as an electronic children’s toy that catches on fire when left out in the sun. Manufacturing errors describe mistakes that make an otherwise safe item dangerous. For example, a swing that comes off of the assembly line missing a link. Manufacturing mistakes during any phase of the process can result in an unreasonably dangerous product. A marketing defect is a failure to warn of known hazards. If the company knows or reasonably should have known about a hazard the item poses, it has a duty to warn consumers. Failure to do so, resulting in consumer injury, is grounds for a strict liability lawsuit. Strict liability laws are in place to protect consumers from goods that are dangerous due to defects.

BURN INJURIES

When a burn injury occurs, the immediate concern pertains to the shock and blood loss involved. It is also critical to do whatever can be done to prevent infection. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the broken skin. For the long-term, burn injuries can impact nearly every aspect of the victim’s life. Depending on the location and severity of the burn, the individual may feel a lack of self-esteem. Of course, the medical bills must be taken into account when discussing the impacts of a burn injury. Depending on possible treatment options, this may require multiple hospital visits until you reach the desired result. The person responsible for the injury should be liable for the monetary damages you face. This is why filing a personal injury claim during this time is so crucial. It can help you get the evidence you need to prove negligence in the matter and move forward with confidence.
