Safety Tips for Hailstorms

Posted by on Jun 28, 2017 in Natural Disasters | 0 comments

When you hear natural disasters, hailstorms are probably not one of the first things that come into your mind, because those spots belong to earthquakes and hurricanes. This is understandable, but you should not completely disregard hailstorms, because they too can put you and your properties at risk, just as well as the other natural disasters.

Never underestimate hailstorms, and do the following to ensure that the damage they may bring to you and your family is minimized.

Secure communication devices

The last thing you want in disasters is to not to be able to talk to your loved ones, so the best thing to do is to secure a fully charged communication device, like a mobile phone. But your family members are not just the ones you should communicate with, because your local authorities are just as important. Make sure that you have radios with fully charged batteries, so you can hear the latest news about the hailstorms.

Park cars in covered areas

Before the hailstorm even arrives, you can already minimize damage by securing the things that it can potentially destroy, such as your cars. You can park your cars in your garage or in any other covered space where they can be safe from the hard objects that are about to fall from the sky.

Bring valuable things inside the house

Like your vehicles, the other valuable things outside of your house that can be damaged by the hailstorm should be taken into the house. The most common valuables outside the house are cooking materials like grills, furniture like benches and chairs, and recreational materials like bicycles.

Stay away from windows

The three entries above should be done before the hailstorm, but what you do during the hailstorm is just as important. Stay away from areas that may possibly break, such as windows, because you may get hit by debris, such as flying glass and hail itself. It also helps if you put curtains or other protective materials around the windows so they can act as shields against debris.

Check the damages

It is important to point out that staying indoors during the hailstorm is the most important thing, so make sure that you only start assessing the damages once the hailstorm is over. Refer to local authority announcements for this. The most common damaged areas are the roofs, metal gutters and pipes, and windows.

Call your insurance

Before attempting any repairs or throwing away unsalvageable materials, it is important to call your insurance company first to know your options. It also helps if you properly document the damages. According to the website of K2 Consulting & Services, LLC, insurance companies may give you less than you deserve, so you should also be cautious of insurance bad faith.

Dangerous Head-on Collisions

Posted by on Mar 12, 2017 in Car Accidents | 0 comments

Traffic accidents may have enough force to seriously injure someone. On the worst cases, those involved even end up dead. One of the most fatal kinds of traffic accidents is called the head-on collision. This happens when the front ends of two vehicles collide. What makes head-on collisions devastating is the fact that the drivers and front passengers are near the source of impact. This may be enough to put them at risk of brain trauma, paralysis, amputation, and even death.

The most tragic head-on collisions are those that have occurred because of the carelessness or negligence of another driver. The following are just some of the circumstances how these accidents may occur:

  • Distracted drivers not seeing that they are already driving the wrong way
  • Drowsy or fatigued drivers not paying attention to their positioning
  • Drunk drivers losing control and swerving into the opposite lane
  • Mentally impaired drivers who are traveling the wrong way
  • Speeding drivers traveling a curve abruptly and ending up on the other side of the road
  • Reckless drivers who intentionally swerve to the opposite lane to overtake a vehicle

According to the website of these Brownsville car accident attorneys, those who have been hurt in car accidents have legal options, like getting compensatory settlements for the damages.

The damages they sustain may come in many forms, such as the following:

  • Injuries that have been sustained in the accident
  • Hospital bills and other medical expenses that have surfaced because of the injuries
  • Temporary or permanent loss of earning capacity because of injury or disability
  • Physical pain, emotional and psychological trauma, and other forms of sufferin

Death, funeral expenses, and suffering from losing a loved one
Even though victims may get monetary compensation and justice for all the above, sometimes they are not enough to counterbalance all the pain and suffering of getting involved in a high-impact head-on collision. When it is considered that they have done nothing wrong and that the negligent driver is the only one at fault, the situation becomes more tragic.

The Necessity of Modifying Custodial and Support Arrangements

Posted by on Aug 17, 2016 in Divorce, Family Issues | 0 comments

In a contested divorce,two major issues which spouses need to settle are child custody and child support. Psychologists and other child custody experts know how important it is for a child to continue having a strong relationship with both parents, specially after divorce. Due to this, if both parents are seen fit by the court, then the court usually decides on granting joint physical custody, wherein both spouses are given equal time with their children. Joint custody is, of course, a special case as the normal decision is to grant custody to only one parent (whom the court sees as the most able to cultivate a positive relationship between the child and the non-custodial parent). Whatever decision is made, though, judges, in all U.S. states, consider one common factor: the best interest of the child.

There are instances, however, when the court-appointed custodial parent fail to live up to the court’s expectations, becoming neglectful in his/her obligations either in the proper performance of a custodial parent’s functions or in recognizing and respecting the non-custodial parent’s rights.

These failures may call for a modification in the court’s original decision. The following acts are considered to be failures committed by a custodial parent:

Alienating the child from the non-custodial parent by creating situations that will denying him/her of his/her visitation rights;

Taking away a child’s affections for the non-custodial parent through false accusations, ill-talks, and/or negative comments ;

Consciously and systematically brainwashing the child in order to turn him/her against the non-custodial. This negative attitude is called Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS); and,

Ignoring a divorce decree stipulation that says he custodial parent should inform the non-custodial parent about any plan of moving to another city or state, or any plan of a change in residence.

Petition for modification in custody, though, is not the only thing a non-custodial parent may ask the court to make; so is a change in child support agreements. As explained in the website of the law firm Marshall & Taylor PLLC, modification of support fall under two types: increasing child support payment and decreasing child support payment.

Petition to increase child support payment is usually made by a non-custodial parent due to any of the following reasons:

  • Increase of income;
  • Income of custodial parent has decreased;
  • The financial needs of a child or the children have increased; and,
  • There is a sudden increase in health care costs for a child

On the other hand, petition to have child support payment be decreased may be due to any of the following reasons:

  • Income of the custodial parent has significantly increased;
  • The support required for the care of the child has decreased;
  • The custodial parent remarried; and,
  • The child will soon be turning 18

Whether a non-custodial’s parent is request for modification in child custody or child support ruling, it can be advantageous to have a knowledgeable attorney guiding him or her every step of the way.

Social Signs That Your Elder Might Need Assisted Living

Posted by on Mar 23, 2016 in Senior Care | 0 comments

When we become busy with our lives, there comes a time where we pay less attention to our loved ones, especially our elders, according to SeniorAdvice.com. We go on to continue our careers or start families away from home, and there won’t be any family members left to accompany the seniors. Whether or not our elders can still take care of themselves, there are different factors that contribute to the health problems that they may encounter. They may physically be able, but the lack of bond with family or friends could lead to desolation, which, in turn, could compromise and complicate their health.

Whether you think your elder is still strong, you should consider the following social signs that may indicate that it is time to send them to an assisted living facility, according to caring.com. Firstly, observe whether or not the elder still has active friendships – whether the elder spends time with friends or is participating in group activities. The lack of companion may lead to sadness and heart problems in the future, so it is best for the elder to still connect with people.

The next thing you should look into is if your elder spends the days just staying at home, may it be because the elder is not capable to do so or is generally scared of going out. According to caring.com, people may perceive sending elders to an assisted home as “locking them away,” but in truth, these facilities are made to provide care and happiness to the residents. Assisted living exists to make the lives of the elderly easier and make their living situation feel more normal by helping them achieve daily tasks like taking a bath, dressing, eating, and many more. Assisted living also helps the elderly by providing spaces for socializing and special conditions (such as Alzheimer’s). According to the Mayo Clinic, including physical activity in daily routines can help seniors as they age.

Help Keep Roads Safe: Don’t Drive Drunk

Posted by on Oct 26, 2015 in Personal Injury | 0 comments

It is an unfortunate truth that car accidents are a standard event in the States. According to data in the US Census Bureau, there were 10.8 million documented motor vehicle injuries in the year 2009. The road may pose plenty of dangers for drivers. That’s why it’s significant that drivers assist in keeping the roads safe by subsequent security techniques and prescribed traffic principles.

Traffic infractions and crimes often lead to a court date plus more than simply fees. Drivers that are careless and negligent on the road could cause injuries and serious accidents. This really is especially true for those who insist on driving while intoxicated. As found by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, alcohol-DUI happens too often in roads all over the country. In reality, data shows that drinking and driving have triggered over 10,000 deaths in 2012. One way the government tries to curb these amounts is by stricter execution of important traffic policies and regulations.

Among the policies which have been useful in recent years are sobriety checkpoints established throughout the nation in several states. They could then check for the motorist’s blood alcohol content (BAC) amount usually via a breathalyzer test. Anyone discovered driving with a BAC level beyond what’s legally required can stand to encounter penalties such as license suspension and jail time. It’s illegal for private individuals to be driving with a BAC level above 0.08 percent. For business drivers, the authorized BAC level reaches 0.04. Meanwhile, anybody under age 21 is under a zero tolerance policy, meaning they should not have any hint of alcohol in their system.

Driving under the influence of alcohol may lead to devastating consequences, especially when others become seriously hurt in the accident. Such consequences are easy to avoid as long as motorists remain mindful of their duty behind the wheel as the website of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP puts it. Understand that you can consider action at law when you have been hurt in an accident brought on by a drunk driver and receive just compensation for the trauma you experienced. It’s better to check with an attorney operating in your area.

How The Jury Affects Your Settlement

Posted by on Jul 23, 2015 in Personal Injury | 0 comments

The amount of compensation from a personal injury claim that a plaintiff or claimant can depend on a number of factors, but they can be settled out of court. Settlement occurs between the plaintiff/claimant and the defendant or the liable insurance company. What most people are not aware of is that even in out-of-court settlements, the jury can still affect the result of the settlement and the compensation.

Settlements are generally a compromise between two parties, an agreement they both have set considering how much the jury would award the plaintiff/claimant as well as the odds of winning the case. How a jury awards compensation depends on certain factors, and it is important for both the plaintiff and the defendant to know how these factors affect the outcome of the compensation in order to make the settlement fair for both parties. Here are the factors to consider:

  • Apportionment of Liability – this can depend on the state that the accident was tried, but the jury is responsible for apportioning (or measuring) the liability of the parties involved in the accident (including the plaintiff), along with the non-parties, and appropriately reduce the award. Jurisdictions in every state can differ – there are some that allow shared liability, while others (who follow comparative negligence) will not award any compensation if the defendant is determined to be less than 51% at fault for the accident.
  • Collateral Source Payment – the amount of compensation awarded can be cut down by any collateral source payments. These are payments given by third parties (such as workers’ compensation or medical insurance) given to compensate for the plaintiff’s injuries. In majority of the cases, the jury is not notified of the any collateral source payments since they can unfairly influence them to not award any compensation. The final decision whether to award the compensation will still rest with the judge.
  • Jurisdictional Damage Caps – depending on the jurisdiction and state laws, limitations can be put on the amount of reward that the plaintiff can get. Jurisdictions have complete control over the caps on compensation, so best to consult with a personal injury lawyer.
  • Reduction to Present Value – future economic damages can be very difficult to compute, so in order to protect both the plaintiff and defendant from issues that can arise in a long-term payment plan, the jury is responsible of lowering the future economic damages according to present value. Personal injury lawyers are the best people who can explain how the computation goes.

Are There Damaging Side Effects with Xarelto?

Posted by on Jun 25, 2015 in Personal Injury, Product Dangers | 0 comments

Recent evidence through the various cases of complaints against Xarelto, as manufactured by Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, that there are very serious and damaging side effects upon consumption of the drug. Some of the side effects include vomiting blood, urinating with unnaturally colored urine (red, pink, or brown), or defecating with stool that is either red or black with an unnatural consistency that resembles coffee grounds.

There are more damaging side effects that have been linked with Xarelto. One of which is severe internal bleeding – especially in the gastrointestinal area. When there is internal bleeding surrounding an organ (such as the brain, heart, liver, etc.), there is a strong likelihood that the organ will malfunction or cease from operating entirely, putting the person at risk. Another side effect that has more lethal consequences is that it could possible cause brain hemorrhaging in a patient.

This kind of situation is not one that should be taken lightly. Upon its approval by the FDA in 2011, sales of Xarelto soared and it remains to be widely popular, according to the website of Williams Kherkher. Worldwide, its sales reach up to $1 billion. The manufacturers of this drug are then profiteers of the pain and suffering that this drug has caused. Some of the lawsuits filed against the manufacturers, with regard to Xarelto, have claimed that the potentially harmful side effects had been known from the very beginning and that this knowledge was concealed from the public, still allowing for the drug to be mass produced and consumed by thousands of people.

If you or someone you know has suffered injuries or fatalities due to the consumption of this drug, it is recommended that professional legal help with experience in handling lawsuits concerning defective pharmaceuticals is contacted in order to receive proper and competent representation in a court of law.

Symptoms Involved with Bloody Stool

Posted by on Mar 19, 2015 in Personal Injury, Product Dangers | 0 comments

Finding blood after a bowel movement is an uncomfortable and frightening occurrence. The presence of blood in stool may be a sign of a serious health concern that should be taken seriously and dealt with in a swift manner. Bloody stool might have other complications and pain associated with it, from abdominal pain to difficulty breathing that may help identify the cause of the bloody stool.

There may be a number of reasons for red and black matter in stool, however it is a common side effect of the blood thinner Xarelto. Xarelto and its manufacturers Bayer and Johnson & Johnson are claimed to cause serious bleeding incidents that were not warned against or disclosed to their patients prior to prescription of the drug. Blood in the stool is a strong indicator that a medication may be causing internal damage and a physician should be consulted immediately.

Abdominal pain is often the first sign of a serious health problem. This can be accompanied by indigestion, flatulence, or nausea. More serious signs that require medical attention would be the accompaniment of vomiting or blood in the stool. These symptoms in tandem may be signs of a life-threatening condition.

Chest pain or pressure, excess bleeding, fever, fatigue, and rapid heart rate are normal indicators accompanying bloody stools. According to the website of lawyers at Williams Kherkher, bowel movements may also appear dark black or have the consistency of coffee grounds. These signs may allude to more serious health concerns caused by stress, medication, or other factors.

If you or a loved one noticed blood in stool or experienced other side effects after being prescribed Xarelto, you may be entitled to compensation of the physical and emotional damages sustained. Contact a Xarelto lawyer in your state to discuss your legal options.
