Texas Insurance Caps - Birth Injury Safety
 
01:33
http://www.trialfirm.com/birth-injury/ - Attorney Laura Brown discusses Texas law for insurance caps for birth injury cases. Texas law caps the recovery for people in a medical malpractice case on something called non-economic damages. In layman’s terms what that means is if there is pain and suffering, if there is loss of enjoyment of life, if there is mental anguish that the types of damages that aren’t established by a receipt or a bill, Texas caps those. In my opinion arbitrarily and unfairly for somebody who’s severely injured. Babies, who have cerebral palsy as a result of a birth injury, can have significant contractures of their body where their arms and legs and muscles are really tight. That’s really painful. Also they lose a lot of the normal qualities of life and it’s a major issue, but unfortunately in Texas those are just capped. So when a child in Texas suffers a birth injury, it’s very important to find lawyers experienced in handling cases like that, to understand how to develop a case, in order to maximize the types of damages that are recovered under Texas law, in order to help the family with medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, and to better the child’s life and the family’s life together as much as possible.

What losses are covered by uninsured motorist insurance?
 
02:20
San Mateo County Personal Injury Attorney Reuben Donig: The same losses are covered by your uninsured motorist policy as you are able to collect from the other side. You're entitled to collect all of your economic and all of your non-economic damages. Economic damages means your past and future medical expenses, your past and future income losses, your past and future other out of pocket expenses, if you're going to need long time healthcare or long time assisted living, if you're going to need to have a maid as a result of being unable to take care of your house, or a gardener. All of these out of pocket expenses are damages, economic damages. And, you're entitled to collect them from your uninsured motorist policy just the same as if you were making a claim against the driver who caused your injuries. And, you're also entitled to collect your non-economic damages. Your pain, your suffering, all of the reasonable compensation that will fully and appropriately compensate you for the harm, the non-economic harm, the unwelcome lifestyle changes, the pain that you have experienced and will experience, and the effect of those pains. If you lose the use of an arm, and you liked to play a musical instrument, the piano, and you can't play it anymore, that's a huge loss to a great component of your life. And, you're entitled to be compensated for that. If you're unable to sleep well at night due to pain; if you're unable to be close or intimate with family members or your spouse; if you're unable to socialize as before; if you're unable to enjoy activities as before, recreational or do household chores. All of those things have to computed and calculated in some fair and reasonable fashion to compensate you for your non-economic damages. You are entitled to recover those economic damages from your uninsured motorist policy, so long as the amount of your claim does not exceed the policy limit that you've purchased. Attorney Reuben Doing: It applies when you've been injured by a motorist who doesn't have insurance which would include a hit and run driver or who doesn't have enough insurance to fully compensate you. One of the most common misconceptions that people have is that they think they're only covered by their uninsured motorist policy when they're involved in a car accident in their own car or in the covered car. That's just simply not true, that's not the case. If you're walking across the street and you're hit by a uninsured or under insured driver, your uninsured motorist coverage will apply. If you're on a bicycle and a car hits you, your uninsured motorist coverage will apply. If you're sitting on a sidewalk cafe and a car jumps the curve and causes you injury, your uninsured motorist coverage will apply. It applies not just when you're in your car; it applies anytime another driver operating a motor vehicle causes you injury and damages. (Attorney Reuben Donig specializes in personal injury law and premises liability, including auto and car accidents in San Mateo County, Santa Clara County, Alameda County and San Francisco County.

Why are There Caps in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits?
 
01:07
In 1975 the California legislature passed a number of laws that were intended to reduce the cost of malpractice insurance for doctors and hospitals. These laws, which together were called the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA), included a $250,000 limitation on all non-economic damages in any medical malpractice case (e.g. pain and suffering damages only.) There is no limit to the amount of damages that can be recovered for economic losses in a California medical malpractice lawsuit.

What is my Accident Case Worth? Berger and Green Injury Lawyers
 
02:01
http://www.BergerandGreen.com. 1-800-999-2626. Another question that's very important to potential clients is, what's my case worth? That's a difficult question to answer, particularly at the beginning of the case. Cases are valued based upon the injuries and the treatment the client undergoes. There are a number of other factors such as, out of pocket costs, liens from health care providers, including the Department of Public Welfare and Medicare. All of these elements add up to provide us with a sense of the valuation of the case. Medical treatment and the records reflecting that treatment are a main driver for the damages that the client has sustained. In Pennsylvania there are two general areas of damages that are recoverable, there's economic and non-economic. Economic damages are those damages that consist of things that you can calculate, lost wages, liens, out of pocket costs. Non-economic damages are those damages that relate to the clients individual pain and suffering, scarring, disfigurement, the lost of the enjoyment of life as a result of somebody else's negligence. Of course, those elements and damages are important to review specific to each clients case. So, what I often tell my clients, when they ask me, when they retain me, what's my case worth?, I often tell them that once I have all of the medical records and they've concluded their treatment, either by reaching maximum medical improvement or released from treatment, that I will review all of the records and the economic damages and prior to making a demand upon the negligent party I will contact them and tell them exactly what I think the value of their case s worth.

If you've been injured in an automobile accident, you may be entitled to a number of different non-economic damages. Unlike economic damages that were previously discussed, these damages are not easily quantifiable. The three biggest non-economic damages that we typically see are for pain and suffering in the past and future, mental anguish in the past and future, and physical impairment. Once again, both past and future. Establishing these damages can be done in a number of ways. One way is through the use of medical evidence. That will obviously indicate any functional limitations you have. Our office, when necessary, obtains experts who can establish these damages, whether it be doctors or life care planners.
We the People - Challenging Georgia's malpractice caps
 
09:43
The following is a short film on Betty Nestlehutt. After receiving plastic surgery, Mrs. Nestlehutt, 72, was left with severe injuries to her face. Her ordeal and the botched procedure has caused Georgias arbitrary $350k cap on damages to come under fire at the GA Supreme Court. Warning: This film includes graphic images and may upset some viewers. In 2005, the Georgia legislature passed a law (SB 3) to substitute their judgment for that of the people in the courtroom. This law offends the constitutional rights of patients who, like Mrs. Nestlehutt, are left permanently disfigured by the negligent acts of another. Now, Ms. Nestlehutt is challenging this law. The Supreme Court of Georgia will be ruling in March 2010 on the constitutionality of Georgia's $350,000 cap on non-economic damages. The law was ostensibly passed to respond to the high cost of medical liability insurance. But, as the film shows, rates have not dropped significantly in the last five years, and have tracked with national trends. What's more, the new laws have not spurred competition in the medmal insurance market: in 2005 there were 139 insurers offering coverage in Georgia. Today there are only 138. Caps didn't solve the insurance problem, it just increased the profits of insurers. It's a one-size-fits-all, big government solution that restricts the fundamental rights of injured patients and their families.

Texas Tort Reform Didn't Work
 
07:35
DALLAS - Health care is a major issue in this presidential election. Everyone is trying to figure out how to pay for it without bankrupting our country. During his run for the White House, Governor Rick Perry pushed states to do as Texas did back in 2003 and cap medical malpractice lawsuits. The idea was, by eliminating frivolous lawsuits and capping the amount a jury can award, those benefits would be passed down to patients in the form of lower healthcare costs and more doctors working in Texas. But Fox 4 found some families don't buy it. "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine," Jennifer Dickerson sings to her baby daughter Ava on a family videotape. Dickerson will never forget those final moments when her daughter took her last breath. "I don't know how long I held her. It didn't seem long enough," Dickerson said. The Bernal family is reminded daily of what might have been for their 4-year-old, Kaylee. "They told us they did not know the extent of the damage without having a heart beat that long," Robert Bernal said. And Bill and Kelly Putnam watched Kelly's dad drown in front of them at a nursing home. "He is flailing his arms and legs for his last breath and then he stops," said Bill Putnam. These North Texas families all believe they were victims of medical malpractice and they all hit the same brick wall. "No one will take the case," said Jennifer Dickerson. "It is going to be too expensive." "We cannot even get it filed," said Robert Bernal. "There is nothing we can do because of tort reform," said Bill Putnam. Back in 2003, the Texas Legislature passed tort reform and later Governor Rick Perry and his wife pushed voters to change the constitution. "Proposition 12 protects your family," said Anita Perry in a television commercial. But did it? The reform put caps of $250,000 on non-economic damages like pain and suffering. That means people who don't work, like the elderly, babies and stay-at-home parents are limited even if they win a malpractice lawsuit. Perry called it a win for Texans and during his presidential run he claimed much-needed doctors were coming to Texas. "This last year, 21,000 more physicians [are] practicing medicine in Texas because they know they can come there and do what they love and not be sued frivolously," Perry said. But within days Politifact, a government fact checking project run by the Tampa Bay Times, reported Perry was "flat out wrong." It said his numbers were off by almost 8,000. With the courthouse doors being closed off to so many, Fox 4 questioned who are the winners and the losers. "The big winners have to be the patients who have more access to specialized and timely care than they previously did," said Jon Opelt of Texas Alliance for Patient Access. The group represents doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and insurance companies. "The physician growth in Texas has been dramatic since the passage of these reforms," said Opelt. "It has been dramatic in Dallas, Texas." "Some of that is simple distortion," said Charles Silver, a law professor at University of Texas at Austin. Silver says doctors are coming to Texas because the population is growing. Silver is part of the only educational research group that studied the historical growth rate. Was it dramatic? He says not even close. "Doctors came to Texas in numbers every year before 2003 and they would have kept coming here after 2003, had there been no tort reform," Silver said. In fact, Silver's group, which gets no money from special interests, says the rate of growth actually slowed after tort reform in Texas. "Texas has fallen farther and farther and farther behind the average U.S, state." he continued. So what about insurance coverage? "We had 13 insurance companies writing coverage in this state and that dwindled to just 4," Jon Opelt said. Opelt said after tort reform was passed, insurance companies returned to Texas and premiums for doctors have gone down substantially, around 50 percent. So have those costs been passed on to consumers like us? "We are paying higher bills," said Tom Smith of Public Citizen. "The cost of health care premiums in Texas has gone up 51 percent." Studies show the average Texas family paid around $9,000 for health insurance in 2003 and more than $14,000 in 2010. That is $655 higher than the national average of $13,871. "The number of people who have insurance has increased. As a percentage of the whole, it has decreased," said Opelt. In other words, more people have insurance in Texas because our population has grown but studies show more than a quarter, 27.8 percent, have no insurance -- giving Texas top honors for the most residents uninsured. "Someone needs to stand up and say this has got to stop," said Bill Putnam.

No Cap Insurance for Birth Injury Claims - Birth Injury Safety
 
02:00
http://www.trialfirm.com/birth-injury/ - Contact the Texas birth injury attorneys for questions about insurance caps for claims. When a child suffers a severe injury at birth, an injury to his or her brain, there are lots of damages that occur as a result of that. There will be medical expenses for the child, in the past and also into the child’s future. There will be rehabilitation costs that are needed for the child, future medical care and rehabilitation to maximize the child’s potential. Those are what we call economic damages. There are also non- economic damages, things like physical pain and suffering. A baby with a birth injury can have contractures of his body where the arms or legs are very very tight and that’s very painful to the child and needs, child needs treatment as a result of that. There can also be significant impacts to the quality of that person’s life. Those kinds of damages are typically referred to as non-economic damages. Some states will place a cap on the recovery of non-economic damages, it’s just an arbitrary number, there’s just a maximum that can be recovered and that’s it. Other states don’t have that cap and they allow a jury to listen to all of the evidence about the effect of the child and they let the jury make a determination about what’s fair in that particular circumstance. So if you have a child that suffered a severe birth injury, you need to know what the law is in your particular state. You need to know what types of damages are recoverable and then whether or not there will be any caps applied to your child’s recovery. So you need to find an attorney who is experienced in birth injury law and litigation and who can advise you about what the law is in your particular state and help you understand what you may be able to recover for your child’s future.

http://www.austinpersonalinjurylawyer.us - Austin Personal Injury Lawyer 1511 E 6th St Austin TX 78702 Unfortunately, in some cases, personal injury can be severe and result in death. Losing a loved one becomes even more difficult to cope with when your loved one's life is unexpectedly taken and the circumstances causing death might have been prevented. Whether your loved one lost their life by an 18 wheeler accident, through medical neglect or any injury related incident, you have the right to seek compensation for the pain and suffering you must endure as a result of someone else's negligence. We strongly encourage you to speak to an experienced wrongful death attorney. Your attorney should properly advocate for your family's rights and provide the best possible advice/outcome for survivors What Is a "Wrongful Death" Suit? A wrongful death suit is a civil action which charges another with being liable for injury resulting in another's death by reason of negligent actions or a failure to act which could foreseeably result in death. The plaintiff (the executor or administrator of the estate of the decedent, family member, or spouse) must prove that the decedent would not have died but for the negligence of the defendant. In Texas, wrongful death suits exist because the Legislature has passed a law permitting them, and so these suits are controlled by and limited by this law. Does Every Death Result in a Lawsuit? Of course, not every accidental death case results in a successful claim. However, you're strongly recommended that you discuss your wrongful death claim with an experienced Austin personal injury attorney. This consultation is will help you understand in which of the following areas you may be able to receive compensation such as: your loved one's pain and suffering before death, a lifetime of lost earnings, medical expenses , property damage, death, loss of consortium (spousal services) and/or punitive damages. Who Can Recover in a Wrongful Death Suit? A wrongful death suit is intended to compensate a surviving spouse, next of kin, or children of a person who is unexpectedly killed. Economic damages in a wrongful death case include an award for the financial contributions which the decedent would have made to the surviving spouse, children and/or parents had he or she survived. Compensatory damages, which are intended to make restitution for the amount of money lost, are the most common damages awarded in wrongful death actions. If you prevail in a wrongful death suit, you may recover medical and funeral expenses in addition to the amount of economic support you could have received if the decedent had lived and, in some instances, a sum of money to compensate for grief or even companionship. Non-economic damages include loss of love, society, companionship, comfort, affection, solace or moral support. Austin wrongful death attorneys at OMD have helped many families through difficult times after a tragic loss. They understand the difficulties you are facing and are sensitive to your concerns. They will work with you to see that your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve. For more information, please visit the Austin personal injury attorneys of OMD.

www.copleyroth.com 913-451-9500 Survivors are allowed to recover any medical expenses that the descendant incurred before passing away. Funeral expenses and any lost wages or loss of income that the beneficiary suffered as a result of the death would be the economic damages. The harder issue is to determine what would be the non-economic damages. In Missouri, you are allowed under the right set of circumstances to pursue a claim for punitive damages. In Kansas, there are no punitive damages offered. However, the punitive damages are recoverable as part of what is called a “survival action” and that is for any pain or suffering that loved one experienced before someone passes away. You are able to assert a punitive damage claim for the survival action. You are not able, in Kansas, to pursue a punitive damage claim for wrongful death.

Jacksonville Accident Lawyer - What Are Human Damages (Non-Economic Damages)?
 
05:37
Experienced personal injury attorney Eric S. Block explains what types of “non-economic damages” an injured accident victim may recover in certain types of auto accident cases, including pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and more. These damages can be complicated and difficult to calculate because they are based on intangible losses, so you always want the assistance of an attorney who understands how to accurately calculate this type of damages. Mr. Block explains that Florida law only allows non-economic damages in certain cases involving permanent injuries and further discusses how to know if an injury qualifies as “permanent” within the context of the law. The permanence of injuries is often hotly contested by defendants and their insurance companies because non-economic damages can often be highly valued. For this reason, Mr. Block provides examples of actions you can take to ensure you are properly and fully compensated for any permanent injuries you suffer in an accident. Law Offices of Eric S.

What Potential Caps on Damages Could Mean for Your Personal Injury Case -- MO Lawyer Ben Schmitt

What Potential Caps on Damages Could Mean for Your Personal Injury Case -- MO Lawyer Ben Schmitt http://www.injuryattorneysm.com (816) 389-4014 Personal injury attorney Ben Schmitt discusses the recent talks about caps on damages and what that could mean for your personal injury case. A cap on damages means that there would be a limit to the amount of money that you could recover in the event someone has caused you harm after an accident. But you need to know that it doesn't mean that all of the damages are limited. Each claim you make -- whether it's about lost wages or a loss of companionship with your spouse -- is referred to as a damage. Some are economic damages like medical bills and lost wages. Whereas loss of companionship plus pain and suffering fall under the non-economic damages category. The laws being passed focus on the non-economic damages, especially pain and suffering. They want to tell you that even if you're unable to walk or you're missing an eye, you're not entitled to more money than someone who broke a bone or only partially lost vision. We're here to fight for your rights and those of all of our injured victims. And we plan on doing so until all of your rights are protected and you're able to get all of the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. Watch this video to learn more.

05:11
Clips from rallies and TV appearances Dr. Donald Palmisano and other doctors in AMA during the battle for medical liability reform in 2002-2003. Nightline TV etc. The medical liability bill passed the House of Representatives and there was majority support in the Senate but a filibuster blocked it in the Senate as it was not possible to get 60 votes for cloture on July 9, 2003 to end the filibuster. However, reform was accomplished in some states in 2003 including the landmark law in Texas where the state constitution was changed by patients and doctors in Texas working together to pass Proposition 12 to allow caps on non-economic damages and the legislature put a cap on non-economic damages. Medical liability policies immediately dropped in cost and so many doctors moved to Texas as a result that the licensing board had to hire more people to process the applications.

What is the Limitation on Damages on a Medical Malpractice Claim?

What is the Limitation on Damages in a medical malpractice case? How could limitation on Damages effect my medical malpractice case? http://www.davidrickslaw.com/ David Ricks of the Inland Empire Law Group handles personal injury in Rancho Cucamonga and throughout the Inland Empire in Southern California. Navigating medical malpractice claims can be difficult. You may ask yourself: Do I have a good case? Do I need a lawyer? How much compensation can I get for my pain and suffering? David wants you to have the information and knowledge you need. We provide legal services in the following personal injury practice areas: *Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Pedestrian, and Cyclist Accident Cases *Slip and Fall Accidents and Premises Liability Cases *Dog Bite and Animal Attack Cases *Medical Malpractice and Surgical Error Cases *Wrongful Death Cases 8600 Utica Ave., Suite 200 Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730 TELEPHONE: (909) 481-0100 In a medical malpractice case there are certain limitations of damages. These limitations prevent us from recovering more than the amount that the law has imposed as a maximum for what is called pain and suffering or general damages. Now let me give you an example of the difference between what might happen with a medical malpractice case or, let's say a truck accident. In a truck accident if you had a serious injury there's no limitation of the amount that a jury could award you for pain and suffering. But in a malpractice case, if the doctor cased the same or similar injuries as the truck accident your maximum recovery is two hundred and fifty thousand dollars for pain and suffering damages, or disfigurement, or something like that. Now, there are some other damages that can be awarded, these are called special damages, such as loss of employment, future medicals, past medical expenses, things that can be itemized. But pain and suffering is limited to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in California. There are some exceptions, and to get around those limitations you need to make sure you consult with a really good medical malpractice attorney.

Cap on Medical Malpractice Verdicts - Info from Virginia Injury Attorneys
 
01:39
Jim Lewis and Mark Favaloro, two experienced Virginia medical malpractice attorneys, discuss the cap on damages for medical malpractice lawsuits. Mark explains that a damage cap is a limit on the amount of financial damages that can be pursued by a victim seriously injured through medical negligence. The logic behind damage caps is flawed and results in jury verdicts being struck down or reduced for no good reason, aside from the cap. Below is a link explaining the damage cap in Virginia: http://www.hsinjurylaw.com/faqs/what-is-the-virginia-medical-malpractice-cap-and-what-does-it-mean-to-a-patient-injured-by-a-med.cfm .

Limits to Medical Malpractice Settlements in SC
 
02:12
South Carolina law limits how much patients and their families can obtain in a settlement for injury or death caused by poor medical care. A South Carolina malpractice attorney explains how these caps work, and why your case may well be worth pursuing despite them. \n\n Transcript \n\n We're talking about medical malpractice settlement limits in South Carolina. If you've been harmed by a medical mistake the law limits or caps your compensation. For the specific dollar amounts check out our website it just makes it easier to pinpoint your situation or you can call or email us right where you are. Generally the law limits your compensation in two situations. First, for non-economic damages also called pain and suffering. These amounts can change every year because they're adjusted according to the Consumer Price Index and they do not apply to private providers who are guilty of recklessness or dishonesty related to the harm, like altering medical records. Second, the law limits all compensation you can get from a government affiliated provider. Usually a county hospital or an office they own these are hard caps, meaning they include economic losses like lost wages and medical bills. These caps never change. \n\n So the question becomes what do you do about it? Well if you've been permanently hurt or lost a loved one as a result of a medical mistake bringing your case may be the only way the harm gets recognized so it won't be repeated. You’ll need a sharp experienced attorney to find every potential provider who contributed to your harm to maximize your chance at the most compensation allowed by law. We have a very select malpractice case load. If you want to find out about your options and your rights feel free to call or email us or live chat us right where you are to see if you qualify to be one of our malpractice clients. I thank you for thinking about this with me and I hope I see you soon. \n

Mesothelioma Causes Asbestos refers to a set of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals: chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite. Among these, chrysotile and amosite asbestos are most common. Although asbestos fibers are microscopic in nature, they are extremely durable and resistant to fire and most chemical reactions and breakdowns. These properties of asbestos were the reasons that supported its use for many years in a number of different commercial and industrial capacities. The strength of asbestos, combined with its resistance to heat, allowed it to become the material of choice in a variety of products, including, but not limited to, roofing shingles, floor tiles, ceiling materials, cement compounds, textile products, and automotive parts. Asbestos is now strictly regulated as exposure to this toxic mineral can now be directly and scientifically linked to a number of lung and respiratory conditions including mesothelioma. Mesothelioma Symptoms Mesothelioma Symptoms Symptoms of mesothelioma can often be confused with the symptoms of other diseases. Therefore, it is important to know the potential signs of mesothelioma, especially if you have a history of being exposed to asbestos. By recognizing symptoms right away, mesothelioma patients have a better chance of receiving an early diagnosis, which can improve overall prognosis and life expectancy. Most Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma Mesothelioma can take a long time to develop, and the symptoms of the disease often do not present themselves until the cancer has progressed to later stages. Early signs of mesothelioma can be easily mistaken for common, everyday ailments, and as a result, early symptoms are often ignored, dismissed, or misdiagnosed. Symptoms can also vary significantly based on the type of mesothelioma a person has. The table below provides an overview of the most common signs and symptoms of late-stage mesothelioma based on the location of the tumors.
