What Injuries Are Treated at a Trauma Center?

The Danger of Injuries from Falls Down Stairs

An American Journal of Emergency Medicine article electronically shared by the National Library of Medicine in 2018 detailed how researchers had combed through 23 years worth of emergency room records. They found that more than 24 million Americans, or the equivalent of more than a million patients annually, had been treated for stair-related injuries during that time frame. These statistics and others led them to conclude that stairs are an all-too-common source of injury and that their rates are increasing. Why do we bring this study up? Because[...]

Are Lawsuit Settlements Taxable?

If you’ve received or will receive money from a lawsuit, you’re probably wondering if that money is taxable or not. The answer to that question is that it depends.

One child was killed, and the other suffered severe burn injuries. This was, unfortunately, not an isolated incident. It’s estimated that close to 10,000 firework injuries occur each year across the country. Even worse, this number seems to be rising. It was reported that the number of firework-related deaths and injuries rose 50% from 2019 to 2020. The majority of these incidents occurred[...]

In a personal injury case, the burden of proof is placed on the plaintiff. This means that you must be able to prove beyond the preponderance of the evidence that the defendant's actions were the proximate cause of your injury.

How Often are Punitive Damages Awarded in Pennsylvania?

When a person is harmed from an accident and someone is found to be negligent, that person has the option of filing a personal injury case. If the case is successful, the guilty party is forced to pay lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. However, when the responsible party acts in an extremely reckless manner or causes intentional harm, an innocent victim may be entitled to receive additional punitive damages. Unfortunately, these types of damages are not awarded often. To pursue the option, it is best[...]

What Season Do Most Accidents Caused by Negligence Happen?

Negligence causes most accidents. When a person doesn’t practice the basic amount of care that they are expected to, or if they fail to act when there is a duty to do so, then they could be considered negligent. When that negligence leads to an accident and a subsequent injury to another person, then a personal injury claim could be filed against the negligent party. Any kind of accident can be caused by negligence, but the most common types are car collisions and slip and falls. (more…)
