What are some common auto part defects?

We rely on the transportation that is available to us. Whether we drive our own vehicle, travel by train, take a taxi or fly by plane, our safety and well-being is dependent upon how well-made those vehicles are when released to consumers. Although cars and other vehicles go through extensive research, design and safety testing, far too often manufacturers don't realize that an error has been made until it is too late. This leaves unsuspecting consumers in California at risk of being seriously injured or killed.

A spinal cord prognosis depends on many factors

California construction workers, police officers, road construction workers, truck drivers and more all perform their duties despite the enormous risks they face every time they show up for work. Work-related accidents in these and other high-risk industries often result in catastrophic injuries that may come with lifelong repercussions.

New blood test detects brain injuries

When it comes to serious harm such as brain and spinal cord injuries, quick diagnosis and treatment can be critical. Any delay may lead to additional harm and/or a delayed recovery. This is why doctors in California strive to utilize appropriate medical testing in a timely fashion.

We handle workers' compensation and third-party claims

Previously on this blog we discussed an instance where agricultural workers were harmed when they were exposed to pesticides that were being sprayed nearby. This case serves as an example of the dangerous conditions that can be thrust upon unsuspecting workers in California. Sometimes, in situations like the one discussed above, the risks could have been completely avoided. In other cases, though, the job itself is inherently dangerous, oftentimes resulting in workplace injuries.

Do I need an attorney after my accident?

After your recent car accident, you may have experienced many events for the first time. Serious injuries, a hospital stay, perhaps surgical procedures and legal issues may have seemed overwhelming and a bit frightening at times. You certainly didn't attempt to handle your medical issues on your own. Why would you feel you had to handle your legal issues without assistance?

How medical care is addressed through workers' compensation

Californians who are injured on the job may be happy to hear that they may qualify for workers' compensation benefits. However, there is often confusion about what, exactly, these benefits can cover. This week we hope to shed some light on how medical care is addressed through the workers' compensation system.

Spinal cord injuries can have a drastic impact

Severe injuries can await those in California who are involved in a workplace accident or car crash. While some of these injuries are only temporary in nature, others, particularly those involving the brain and the spinal cord, can be permanent. These individuals' lives can be forever changed by their injuries, as they often lead to physical and cognitive limitations that render them unable to carry out the daily tasks they once used to complete with ease.
