    Florida Supreme Court tosses out medical malpractice cap on damages

    http://www.tampabay.com

    TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the centerpiece of the 2003 medical malpractice overhaul, blasting the Legislature for creating an "alleged medical malpractice crisis" and concluding, in a 5-2 ruling, that a cap on wrongful death noneconomic damages violates the U.S. and...

    Most doctors are good wonderful human beings who help and don't hurt. However, if you harm someone, you should be responsible for the full measure of the harm you cause. The $250 cap was put into place more than 38 years ago. Let's raise it to reflect the rate of inflation. Let's also say asking doctors to pee in a cup is not a bad thing! Good docs should not be afraid of this change!

    "Trial lawyers and consumer groups are pushing a measure that would raise the cap on pain and suffering damages in medical malpractices cases from $250,000 to approximately $1.1 million. It would also require doctors to be drug tested and to check a statewide database when prescribing certain medications to clamp down on prescription drug abuse."

  • Burn Injury Attorneys Los Angeles

    Life-Changing Personal Injury

    A burn injury is among the most devastating types of injuries, and is oftentimes caused by the incompetence and negligence of someone else. At The Haggai Law Firm, serving Los Angeles and the surrounding area, we are experienced in personal injury law, including burns and it is our job to preserve the rights of burn victims and seek out compensation for their injuries and other damages.

    Burns can be quite heinous personal injuries, and they can leave the victim with horrible, lifelong medical problems, scar tissue, and disfigurement. Burns can take years to heal. Recovering from a burn oftentimes requires expensive and painful medical procedures, like skin grafts, in order for the burn victim to realize some sense of normalcy again. The cost of treating a burn injury can easily run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. No matter the cost, treatment does not always restore the victim to their pre-injured state, as burns can cause severe neurological and nerve damage that cannot be reversed. If a burn is serious enough, it can be fatal. In these instances, the burn victim’s family is entitled to compensation.

    Burn injury victims in Los Angeles need the help of the experienced lawyers at The Haggai Law Firm. We have won millions of dollars in compensation for our clients over the years, and we stand ready to fight for you or your loved one.

    Recovering Money for a Burn Injury in Los Angeles

    As soon as possible following the injury, it is important that the burn victim or their family contact a lawyer who is experienced in personal injury law. Victims must understand their legal entitlements and options that are available to them. The Haggai Law Firm can help root out the responsible party, whether a victim was burned at home, work, or elsewhere. We can help burn victims file a claim for compensation from the at-fault party, whether that means going up against an individual, business, or even a big corporation. We will fight to negotiate a monetary settlement for the burn injury victim that will cover the victim’s expenses, including:

    • Medical bills - The cost of treating a burn injury can really add up, not only during the time that the victim is recuperating, but also on down the road when the victim needs physical therapy and subsequent surgeries. Many times the burn injury victim will also need plastic reconstruction procedures. The at-fault party can be held responsible for past, current, and future medical care.
    • Lost wages - The burn injury victim may be unable to work for an extended period of time, and some may even be permanently disabled due to their burn injury. The responsible party must pay lost wages and in the case of permanent or partial disability, an award is often sought for the injured person’s diminished capacity to earn a living. This monetary award reflected the victim’s lower potential to earn a living, based on his injuries.
    • Pain and suffering - Burns are among the most painful injuries imaginable. A substantial award for pain and suffering is usually given to the burn injury victim.

    Your personal injury law firm will also seek out other compensation for which you may be entitled due to your burn injury. A burn injury has many legal ramifications and the representation that the victim chooses should never be taken lightly. Call The Haggai Law Firm now to schedule a consultation with a California burn injury lawyer with the experience and know-how to file your burn injury claim, negotiate with the insurer or at-fault party, and if necessary, litigate your case in a court of law to recover every penny that you are entitled to for your injuries.
