I've been scheduled for a deposition. What does that mean?

If you suffered an injury while at work, you have more than likely already applied for workers' compensation benefits. However, you may have discovered that you could pursue additional compensation from a third party such as a manufacturer or motorist, among others, depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident. You may have determined that filing a lawsuit against that third party could help you obtain much needed compensation not provided by your workers' compensation benefits.

Defective product leads to truck recall

When consumers buy products, they expect them to be safe for their intended use. Whether one buys a toy for their child, food for their family, or even clothing to wear to work, the last thing they expect is to be injured by it. The same holds true for automobiles. Yet, with the numerous parts that go into making a functioning car or truck, there are bound to be issues, despite extensive safety regulations being put into place. The defective auto parts can leave unsuspecting individuals susceptible to injuries.

New study may change the way spinal cord injuries are treated

Far too many individuals who are injured in car accidents and workplace accidents are left with injuries that leave them utterly debilitated. Amongst these injuries are those that affect the brain and spinal cord. Fully recovering from these injuries is unlikely in most cases, and the rehabilitation process can be extremely expensive, tiring, and time-consuming. While this can be disheartening, advances in medical research and technologies may be creating more effective ways to treat these injuries.

Worker killed in cement factory accident

Going to work should never be an event that is feared, but the sad truth of the matter is that no profession is immune from workplace accidents. Teachers can be hurt while lifting boxes, pizza delivery drivers can be hurt in an auto accident, and police officers can be injured when arresting a suspect. Regardless of one's profession, he or she needs to know what he or she can do after being injured on the job, as the aftermath of a workplace accident can leave him or her with serious losses. These losses can include lost wages and medical expenses.

Experienced firm handling workers' comp and 3rd party claims

Those who are injured in a workplace accident can find themselves struggling to reclaim their health and get back to work. It can be an uphill battle, complicated by a number of legal issues. Workers' compensation, of course, is one of the best ways for these individuals to recover compensation, but even recovering these benefits can be challenging. Even if workers' compensation benefits are obtained, they may not be enough to cover the full extent of one's losses, which is why, as we discussed previously on the blog, it may be beneficial to consider pursuing an additional third-party claim, if warranted.

Determining liability after a tour bus accident

Every driver is expected to exercise caution behind the wheel. New drivers learn about defensive driving skills and the great responsibility they have to avoid behaviors that may cause injury to others. There are some drivers, however, whom you may expect to use even more care. For example, you certainly hope your grandchild's school bus driver or the tractor trailer driver hauling a tank of flammable liquid is not impaired or texting behind the wheel.
