Nursing Home Injury Rates are Increasing in Orange County

Nursing Home Injury Rates are Increasing in Orange County

The Centers for Disease Control, or CDC report that nursing home injury rates are increasing in Orange County and across the United States.  The number of falls resulting in seriously injuries has increased, especially here in California.  California has the highest rates of restraint in our nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities.  This is often due to understaffing, and the inability to meet standards for patient care.

How Insurance Adjusters Make Low Offers to Maximize Profits

Insurance Adjusters make low Offers

How do insurance adjusters make low offers to maximize profits for their employers?  There are several tactics that insurance adjusters use to minimize the exposure of insurance companies when you’ve been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence.  The first tactic is to turn the “friendly” side of their personality up to “full on” in an attempt to gain your trust and make it seem as if they are looking out for your interests. The second tactic relates to time.  Insurance adjusters want to settle your case quickly.  If they offer a settlement quickly call us immediately for a free consultation at 949-305-1400.  The harder they push to settle the more you should seriously consider contacting our office.  After more than 40 years of experience with accidents involving injury, I can tell you that many injuries do not fully present for weeks and sometimes months.

Holding a California Government or Public Entity Financially Accountable for Injury

California Government or Public Entity Financially Accountable

California law allows its citizens to hold a California government or public entity financially accountable for injury. The first and most obvious source of exposure for public entities would be public transportation such as buses and trains. The Orange County Transportation Authority or OCTA operates the OCBus and the Metrolink train services. If you are injured in an accident caused by an OCTA bus or train, or the LA Metro or Amtrak my law firm can hold them financially accountable and provide the resources you need to recover from your injuries and move forward with your life. Another example is an accident caused by a municipal vehicle such as a police or sheriff’s cruiser, fire or emergency vehicle. Even if the siren is on, or if the police are involved in a high speed chase the municipality has a responsibility to protect citizens from exposure to risk, and that includes

Los Angeles Sheriff Hit and Severely Injured a Pedestrian in Lynwood

A Los Angeles Sheriff hit and severely injured a pedestrian in Lynwood last evening.  The department released a statement noting the deputy had struck a pedestrian in the 12300 block of Long Beach Boulevard sometime around 6:30 PM.  The Sheriff was responding to a call for service at the time of the accident. Both the injured pedestrian and the Sheriff’s Deputy were transported to the hospital.  While the deputy is not seriously injured, the pedestrian was admitted in extremely critical condition. Can the pedestrian hold the Sheriff’s Department accountable for all bills, expenses and financial damages associated with their injuries?  If the pedestrian does not survive what options might be available to the pedestrian’s family?

Suffered a Head Injury in a Car Accident

Suffered a Head Injury in a Car Accident

Have you or someone you loved suffered a head injury in a car accident?  One of the most common injuries in a serious car accident is a head injury.  The forces involved in a car accident tend to severely affect the head and neck as the body reacts to the impact.  Impacts from the side can lead to an impact with the frame of the car, support beams or the window next to the victim.  Head on and rear-end impact accidents can often result in open-head and closed-head injuries including traumatic brain injury or TBI.  If you or a family member suffer a head injury in a car accident it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced injury attorney. Head injuries can be quite severe, and victims of skull fractures and traumatic brain injury can require long-term care and even modification to their homes.  My name is Rivers
