Insurance Company Settles Our Claim

What does it take to get a fair settlement from an insurance company?

Neck Injury from an auto accident, insurance settlementUnfortunately, it takes time and a lot of persistence. We finally closed out a case for a client today for a noteworthy amount that started with an auto collision in 2015. Clearly the other driver was at fault, but the insurance carrier said our clients medical bills were too high. They didn’t seem to care that my client had a neck injury and required two rounds of steroid shots to help with the neck pain.

I filed her lawsuit, had discovery battles, depositions, and a scheduled mediation, the insurance carrier settled today for what we thought the case was worth a year ago!

Keep up the fight! We will fight for you too!

Contact us if you are ever involved in an automobile accident, regardless of who appears to be at fault.

When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Not all injury cases require a lawyer to get involved, but there are many times when a lawyer’s services are valuable, even indispensable. Insurance claims, toxic exposure, and medical malpractice cases are three examples where you are better off with legal counsel. Nolo.com offers some great advice on handling a variety of tough legal situations.

When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Insurance companies cannot always be relied on to deal fairly with someone who makes a claim. If you were seriously injured or disabled, you might have to file a personal injury suit against the responsible party or their insurance company to get a fair settlement. The responsible party’s insurance company will definitely fight if you are disabled because those payouts are so expensive.

Toxic chemicals in air, food, or water can disable or kill people. Yet, it is usually difficult to prove there was a toxic substance involved and to show who was responsible for it being in the environment. Most of these cases are too technical and to legally complicated for an individual to tackle. Powerful corporations have money and lawyers at their disposal.

Medical errors injure, disable or kill people in Texas every week. If there is evidence of negligence at the hospital, the victim or victim’s next-of-kin, should file a lawsuit with the help of an attorney. Like toxic exposure cases, medical malpractice cases tend to be complicated affairs. The hospital will fight back.

Rose Law has experience representing small businesses, individuals, and insurance companies in personal injury cases. In disability cases, toxic exposure cases, and medical malpractice cases the average citizen is at a hopeless disadvantage.

To talk about your case, don’t hesitate to Contact Us. Thanks.

Dog Bite Injuries Must Go Beyond Puncture Care

Do you know how many pathogenic bacteria are living in the mouths of dogs? Published accounts put it in the thousands. But those pathogens are just one cache of problems that comes part and parcel with dog bite injuries. The potential for developing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is unfortunately another. It’s commonly seen as a condition known to inflict emergency personnel, members of the military and law enforcement. However, it may arise in animal attack victims as well.

Dog Bite Injuries Must Go Beyond Puncture CareProof of its prevalence in injured populations may be found in a number of published documents from the 1990s through the mid 2000s. Examples include studies from issues of Pediatrics, Adolescent Psychiatry and Contemporary Pediatrics. They all make mention of the disorder and how its symptoms may manifest themselves in people under the age of majority. This is not to say that adults aren’t capable of experiencing those symptoms too.

Accordingly, the way that the symptoms present themselves may vary but the criteria for making a diagnosis among people who’ve experienced dog bite injuries remains the same. And we might add that the disorder may impact the lives of dog bite victims right up until their deaths. So, the costs of therapy sessions and medications needed to treat the disorder often have a way of adding up.

In addition, the medications used to provide dog bite injury victims comfort may not be medically appropriate for all people. Plus, they tend to have side effects that may cause animal attack victims to experience further difficulties. Let’s take alpha-blockers as examples. Frequently used to control the body’s flight or fight response, they may give dog bite victims hives, headaches, respiratory problems, chronic fatigue and gastrointestinal distress.

To learn more about PTSD and the psychological complications commonly attributed to dog bite injuries, please contact injury lawyer, Dale R. Rose. Mr. Rose offers free consultations to people living in North Texas who believe that they may be suffering from dog bite related complications.

The Epidemic of Distracted Driving

The Epidemic of Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States. At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving (Distraction.gov). In 2013, the most recent year for which statistics are available, there were 3,154 people killed and 424,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers (NHTSA, 2015). Ten percent of fatal crashes, 18 percent of injury crashes, and 16 percent of all police-reported motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2013 were reported as distraction-affected crashes (NHTSA, 2015). Many experts believe that these numbers actually under-represent the number of crashes that involve distraction because they are relying on police reports and self-reporting of drivers. Regardless, these numbers indicate that distracted driving is a dangerous problem that is likely to increase as the use of in-vehicle technology and personal electronic devices while driving increases.  Source:  Robson Forensic – 12/2/15

If you or someone has been injured in a collision due to someone’s negligence of distracted driving, please contact Dale R. Rose as soon as possible to help with your claim.
