The Effects Of A Serious Injury May Last Your Entire Life

Minor physical injuries can be managed with no interruption to your daily life such us working, self-care, well-being and happiness. Such injuries seldom set off psychological and emotional trauma. However, people who have pain and suffering from a serious personal injury related to vehicle, sports, accident, or accidental fall may develop feelings of stress and trauma, and disorders such as anxiety, depression, frustration, isolation, lack of motivation or substance use or abuse well after they have completed medical rehabilitation. While it is normal to experience these feelings and to have an emotional reaction to injury whether it’s minor or serious, it is just as important to understand that if the stress remains constant, and continues to affect your quality of life, psychological counseling may be needed to resume a normal lifestyle. If you or a loved one have been injured through no fault of your own but by someone else’s thoughtless behavior, you may be entitled to compensation not just for the physical damages of the accident, but also for your pain, trauma and suffering.

Do You Really Need Legal Help For A Minor ‘Fender Bender’ Auto Accident?

While “minor fender benders” in South Florida often result in negligible property damages, it is never safe to assume that such simple accidents always result in logical outcomes. “Fender bender” is a low-speed minor accident that can turnout exceptionally costly when all is said and done. Vehicle occupants, for instance, could have suffered injuries that were not immediately apparent at the time of the collision. And since insurance company adjusters are not necessarily agreeable with these premises – often offering inadequate compensation to individuals involved in car crashes dealing with lesser property damage – it is highly recommended that, if you’ve been involved in any kind of auto accident, you take these immediate important steps: First, contact law enforcement to report the accident. With a report, the driver at fault will not be able to deny the accident never occurred. Second, take pictures to document any damage to your car. Third, visit a doctor as soon as possible, as a trained physician can detect physical damage that may not be immediately apparent. Very often, injuries occur days or weeks following the accident. And lastly, secure…Read More

It’s that magical and exiting time of the year once more for hungry goblins, elves and witches, and while just about everyone enjoys trick or treating, it’s important to remember that Halloween can be one of the most dangerous holidays for kids of all ages. Pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to kids and teens on Halloween. Following are some simple and easy-to-follow rules to help make this holiday as safe as possible for all: Make flashlights available to both the children and the accompanying adults, and choose brightly colored costumes and/or reflective patches to increase visibility. Avoid masks if possible because they can limit or block eyesight.

Just because one car stops, does not mean all will stop – careless drivers represent the major threats…Read More

Skilled Nursing Facilities Often Fail To Provide Sufficient Care. Are You A Victim?

According to a study conducted by Medicare’s Inspector General, the rate of medical errors resulting in injuries and death in skilled nursing facilities was much higher than that reported for hospitals. Skilled nursing facilities, which include certified nursing homes, typically provide follow-up treatment for patients after they have been discharged from acute care or postoperative care at a hospital and need to recover in an environment outside of the hospital. As reported by the study, medical errors at these establishments are not as widely reported as those that take place at hospitals. Red flags at these facilities are not always obvious. Errors that occurred during patient treatment – including everything from dispensation of the wrong medications to infections – resulted in damages both temporary and permanent, and more than half of the patients who were harmed had to be hospitalized at additional expense. The study also revealed that a majority of these errors were actually preventable. If you or a loved one has been victimized by nursing home errors or wrongdoing, please be aware that you have legal recourses available. At Fenstersheib Law Group, P.A.,…Read More
