Texas Insurance Caps - Birth Injury Safety
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 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.

Lets ask the Lawyer about Catastrophic Damages and Tort Reform
http://www.Mattlaw.com Catastrophic injuries are usually very obvious to identify and include brain injuries, paralysis, loss of a limb, blindness, or loss of an important bodily function. Despite the obviousness of their appearance, what is not so obvious is the long term needs that a person with a catastrophic injury will have. Catastrophic injuries generally result in monumental expenses. A child who is deprived of oxygen at birth that causes severe brain damage may require 24 hour nursing care and expensive medical assistance to provide the highest quality of care possible. The costs for such care over the life of the child can reach 15 to 25 million dollars. Or the loss of a limb may require extensive physical and vocational rehabilitation training to help bring victim back to the highest level quality of life. Also, they may need prosthetic appliances, wheel chairs, or numerous other items that are extremely expensive, and this equipment wears out and needs replacing and maintenance on a constant basis. In a trial when we ask a jury to award these past and future medical expenses, we use the assistance of experts who meet with each of the medical doctors to determine what needs and assistance the victim should have for their future care. These experts quantify the cost of each piece of equipment, tell us how long the equipment will last, and they tell us how many times the particular piece of equipment will need to be replaced during our client's expected life. Then using inflation rates for medical services and appliances they can accurately predict the costs of the services and equipment needed to help the victim maintain the highest quality of life. Unfortunately, the insurance companies will often say "why should we have to pay for these equipment and services when the state will provide it for free?" The answer is quite simple, it is the person who caused the injury who should bear the cost and burden of these expenses and not the taxpayers. Why should the insurance company who's responsible for the injuries to the victim be allowed to avoid their responsibility and cause the victim to become a burden on the state of Florida? Additionally, as we are all aware, the state of Florida is already burdened by millions of people who need very extensive medical care, and the resources are very limited. As a result, most of the people who rely upon the state of Florida to provide healthcare, receive only the minimum and substandard services available. It is quite clear that an injured victim's quality of life is greatly improved when the best healthcare services are provided to keep the victim living at their highest and fullest capacity. http://www.MattLaw.com

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.

Why are There Caps in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits?
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.

Texas Tort Reform Didn't Work
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.

What is my Accident Case Worth? Berger and Green Injury Lawyers
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.

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.

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.

We the People - Challenging Georgia's malpractice caps
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.

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.

Nix Tort Reform Video Short.wmv
This video discusses Senate Bill 863, which passed the Oklahoma Senate today. This legislation places a arbitrary $250,000.00 damages cap on non-economic damages in all civil cases in Oklahoma no matter how catastrophically injured the Oklahomans (brain injured child, paraplegic, quadraplegic, etc.) This law benefits negligent corporations and their multi-million dollar insurance companies and victimizes the most vulnerable and severely injured Oklahomans.

injury attorney
injury attorney A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights. Even though personal injury lawyers are trained and licensed to practice virtually any field of law, they generally only handle cases that fall under tort law including work injuries, automobile and other accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, and slip and fall accidents. The expression "trial lawyers" can refer to personal injury lawyers, even though most cases handled by personal injury lawyers settle rather than going to trial and other types of lawyers, such as defendants' lawyers and criminal prosecutors, also appear in trials.

How Do You Collect for Pain & Suffering After a Car Accident?
http://www.ithacainjurylawyer.com New York car accident cases always have two main issues: 1. Liability: Who is at fault? 2. Damages: What are the medical bills, wage loss, and human losses (pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life) This video explains why you have to prove serious injury in New York to collect for pain and suffering (human loss) damages. There are specific criteria that have to be met. This threshold is vital to any New York car/ truck accident case. As a chiropractor, I testified in Court on behalf of patients, gave depositions, and wrote medical reports for personal injury cases. With this perspective in mind, I take you behind the door or the scene so to speak to the thought process of a chiropractor/lawyer who understands the connections, links, and bridges that must be made for a successful personal injury case. I am a doctor of chiropractic and attorney at law. My law practice focuses on criminal defense, and auto injury. To learn more about how injury law works in the State of New York I encourage you to explore my educational materials. My you tube library has over 100 medico-legal videos or you can visit my blog.

Car Accident in NY- You're Hesitant to Bring Lawsuit...Here's What You Need to Know
Car Accident in New York- You're Hesitant to Bring Lawsuit...Here's What You Need to Know http://www.oginski-law.com/library/new-york-car-accidents-12-key-deposition-techniques-in-a-car-accident-case.cfm New York Car Accident Lawyer 516-487-8207 Email: Gerry@Oginski-Law.com There are some car accident victims who feel that despite their injuries, they should not bring a lawsuit. They feel guilty. They feel embarrassed. They worry what their friends, neighbors and family will think. They don't want to be like “Those other greedy people” who bring a lawsuit at the drop of a hat. They are not litigious. They're not the type of people to sue. If that's how you feel, that's perfectly okay. However, before you reach that ultimate conclusion, you need to think strongly about what the future will look like for you. Will you be able to pay your ongoing medical bills for the injuries you suffered as a result of someone else's carelessness? Will you be disabled and unable to work into the future? If so, how will you provide for yourself and your family? How will you pay for your kids education and college if you're unable to work as a result of the injuries caused by a careless driver? Will you lived contentedly with the pain, suffering, aggravation and inconvenience with injuries that were wrought upon you? Is it fair to have to live your life with a permanent disability without being fully compensated for the harms and losses you suffered? In this video, I have no intention of convincing you to do anything you don't want to do. If you feel bringing a lawsuit is not something you're able to do because of your religious or moral beliefs, there is nothing wrong with that. However, keep in mind that the longer you wait to bring a lawsuit against someone who caused you harm as a result of their carelessness, the greater chance that you will miss the deadline to file suit. If you're able to show successfully that the other driver was careless and violated the rules of the road and that carelessness was a cause of your injuries, then the law also requires them to repay you a debt that they now owe as a result of you suffering these terrible injuries. You can choose not to do anything. That's your choice. However, if you wait too long and the time limit to file a lawsuit has expired, there is nothing you will be able to do after that point in order to seek money for all the injuries you experienced.

What losses are covered by uninsured motorist insurance?
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.
