How Much of Your Personal Injury Award Can You Keep After Bankruptcy?

By |January 14th, 2019|Personal Injury|Comments Off on How Much of Your Personal Injury Award Can You Keep After Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy has the potential to swallow up a large part of the award you receive from a personal injury claim. How much you get to keep depends on the exemptions that apply. Every state has their own set of exemptions, and the federal government provides exemptions, too. Sometimes, you have to use the state exemptions (as in Ohio); other times, you can choose which set you use (as Kentucky allows). [...]

Communication Break Downs and Medical Malpractice

By |January 7th, 2019|Medical Malpractice|Comments Off on Communication Break Downs and Medical Malpractice

According to a BMJ study published in 2016, medical errors are the third most common cause of fatalities in the U.S. behind cardiovascular disease and cancer. Making the issue even worse, most of these errors are unreported. Over the course of an average hospital stay, the typical surgery patient is transferred between various departments, eventually observed by as many as 27 separate medical professionals. In the ideal scenario, a patient’s [...]

Defective Equipment is a Hunter’s Biggest Threat

By |December 24th, 2018|Defective Products|Comments Off on Defective Equipment is a Hunter’s Biggest Threat

Hunting season is in full swing and hunters have the right to expect the equipment and tools they depend on in the field will function safely. This includes not only firearms, but also bows, tree stands, traps, and blinds. If you use any of these devices that prove faulty, the potential to sustain an injury exists, and you may also have a legitimate defective product claim for compensation. Although hunting [...]

US Maternal Mortality Rates Light a Fire Under Congress at Last

By |December 20th, 2018|Medical Malpractice|Comments Off on US Maternal Mortality Rates Light a Fire Under Congress at Last

Over the last 18 months, ProPublica and NPR, and USA TODAY, launched in-depth investigations into the causes behind America’s high maternal mortality rates. What they uncovered shocked the country: that the U.S. is the only developed nation whose maternal death rates are on the rise, and that the primary causes of these deaths were complications arising from preeclampsia and post-partum hemorrhage.

DO YOU REALLY KNOW HOW FAR AN EXPENSIVE COLLEGE EDUCATION WILL TAKE YOUR KIDS?

By |December 11th, 2018|College|Comments Off on DO YOU REALLY KNOW HOW FAR AN EXPENSIVE COLLEGE EDUCATION WILL TAKE YOUR KIDS?

I heard a joke a few years ago. It went like this: A couple is at home when their heater breaks. Neither one knows how to fix the heater, so they call the local handyman to come and take a look. He gets to the home, checks out the heater, and diagnoses the problem. The couple agrees to pay the man $1,000 (it’s soooo cold!), as long as he fixes [...]

Surrendered Medical License? Just Practice in Another State

By |December 10th, 2018|Medical Malpractice|Comments Off on Surrendered Medical License? Just Practice in Another State

It takes a lot for a Medical Review Board to revoke a doctor’s license. That is why, when it does happen, you can be sure that the doctor who lost his or her license must have either done something truly egregious, or have had a number of complaints lodged against him/her. In order to help protect patients, the states keep a running list of licensed doctors, accessible online. You can [...]
