What Causes Most Auto Accidents?

No one gets in their car and expects to be hit by a negligent driver. But it does happen. Every day in Jackson, people suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents. We are here to help. We can assist with accidents that were caused by:

  • Inattentive drivers
  • Drunk or drugged drivers
  • Distracted or texting drivers
  • Reckless drivers
  • Road hazards that happened because the city did not maintain the roadways

After an accident, seek medical attention and have your injury documented. Get the name and insurance information of the other driver and names and contact information of any witnesses. Take pictures or photos as soon as you can after the crash. We will investigate the scene and speak with the people involved. The insurance company may try to contact you. It is in your best interest to avoid speaking with the insurance company. Instead, have your attorney do the talking.

An Established Firm For Birth Injury Representation

Birth injuries are injuries that happen to the mother or baby during the birthing process. There are many, many types of injuries, but the most common are:

  • Broken bones
  • Uterine rupture
  • Nerve injuries
  • Vaginal tears

Some injuries and some bad outcomes are not preventable. However, when negligence is the cause of an injury or death, then it is time to take action. If your doctor did not follow the appropriate procedures, did not administer medication correctly, or ignored red flags or warning signs, these may be indications of negligence. Speak with a member of our team in a complimentary consultation to determine whether your injury was due to negligence.

When A Baby Is Hurt During Birth

When those who are in charge – doctors and nurses – fail to adhere to the protocol or fail to provide the care that is entrusted to them and a baby gets hurt, it is time to consult with an attorney. Why? For three reasons: One, you, your child and your family deserve to know the truth about the injury. Two, if a medical provider is making serious mistakes, there may be underlying causes that need to be investigated so that no one else gets hurt. Lastly, if the injury that was caused is serious and requires surgeries, prolonged care or another treatment, this can incur significant cost to you that you may not be in a position to undertake.

We will work diligently to ensure your child receives the care needed. We will also hold the responsible parties accountable.

Causes And Types Of Birth Injuries

Many things happen during a birth. Some of these injuries are minor and will heal in a few days. Other injuries take more time or endure for months, years or a lifetime.

Birth injuries are caused by a wide range of actions or inactions. These include the failure to diagnose, monitor or plan for a C-section. Misusing instruments or using excessive force can also hurt a baby. Exposure to bacteria, lack of oxygen and respiratory distress can also cause injury.

We can help if your child was injured. We assist with:

  • Brain, nerve and spine damage, including cerebral and Erb’s palsy
  • Shoulder and brachial injuries and bone fractures
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Disfigurement
  • Meningitis
  • Caput succedaneum
  • Horner’s syndrome

Many surgeries are more effective while a baby is months old. Early intervention and physical therapy can work to ensure healthy muscle development. We will aggressively pursue the care your baby needs to grow and thrive.
