Caring for someone with a brain injury

The brain is a delicate organ that can be injured in any number of ways including sports injuries, car accidents, falling objects, and infections. The key to managing brain injuries is to control what you can, namely how you treat yourself after incurring the injury. Major brain damage symptoms may develop after the accident event because the victim did not take proper care with returning to their routine. Your brain requires rest and relaxation to put itself back together after a major injury.

Bus operators are common carriers

A common carrier is a company or entity that engages in the business of moving people or goods from one place to another for a fee. This definition covers a variety of companies including city buses, taxicabs, freight trains, aviation, ocean shipping and sometimes even amusement park rides. If you were injured while utilizing a common carrier, like a New York City Transit bus, then you may have a claim for personal injury against the owner/operator of the bus. You, as the plaintiff, need only prove that a particular bus operator was negligent.

Your rights to doctor-patient confidentiality

Some relationships are so sensitive that certain information must be kept confidential to facilitate open and honest communication. Some relationships like lawyers to clients, psychologist to patient, priest to layperson and doctor to patient spring to mind. These relationships require a certain level of confidentiality to ensure that the person seeking help can be open and honest about their situation. This puts certain obligations and duties on the doctor or lawyer receiving the information, namely a duty to keep confidential the client's personal details.

Company issues recall for dietary supplement

It is normal to assume that the stuff you buy at the grocery store is safe. After all, there is the FDA, the CDC and any number of state agencies and acronyms that exist to make sure that you can safely buy milk and medicine. Unfortunately with what may appear to be an uncomfortable frequency, recalls need to be occasionally ordered by food and drug companies to stop consumers from purchasing potentially dangerous products. Now and then a food or drug slips through the regulatory framework and so recalls are issued by companies and by agencies, like the FDA, to minimize consumer injuries.

Wrongful death suits can give voice to victims

There are many situations in life that can throw us into an emotional tailspin. But losing a loved one unexpectedly may be the most difficult event we could ever have to endure. And if that loss was due to the negligence or wrongful act of another, we are right to expect answers and accountability. One way to hold a responsible party accountable is by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Potential compensation for brain injuries

It might be easy to forget that you got bumped on the head a while back. In fact, you may not even believe you were that injured. Sure you had a concussion but people get those all the time. Brain injuries are difficult to heal and are complicated cases because the symptoms may take months or years to fully manifest. However, just because they are complicated, it does not mean that you shouldn't try to get the compensation you deserve.
