Christa R. Haggai, Attorney-at-Law
Good news in Florida! Hopefully, California voter will follow this lead!
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."
It is time for a change! Sometimes $250,000 for pain and suffering damages is not enough in light of the damage. Take a minute and watch this sort video - a story from a medical malpractice victim. Thanks!
Haggai Law Firm offers dedicated representation to motorcycle accident and other types of personal injury victims in Los Angeles and surrounding cities. People that have been injured in traffic accidents, workplace incidents, on business property, or due to malfunctioning equipment have the right to file legal claims for compensation. The Haggai Law Firm specializes in these types of cases, and handles legal matters such as wrongful termination, breach of contract, sexual harassment cases, wrongful termination, fraud cases and other business litigation. Christa R. Haggai, Attorney-at-law, handles cases with professionalism, experience and sympathetic understanding.
Most people have heard of multimillion-dollar awards in extreme cases, but even minor injuries could entitle victims to compensation. Haggai Law Firm offers free consultations to help clients understand the merits of their cases. People with legitimate claims do not need extensive personal resources to file lawsuits. The firm accepts cases on a contingency basis, which means that clients only need to pay if they are awarded damages by a jury or in settlement agreements.
Personal injuries generate serious consequences. In many cases, victims lose time from work, experience pain and suffering, or their ability to work may be compromised by their injuries. If someone else’s actions, property, or negligence caused or contributed to the injuries, then victims have the right to seek damages in court. Injury cases can be complex, and they sometimes last for many years. At other times, insurance companies are quick to settle, but this often means they fear the prospect of paying out much higher awards if taken to court.
Deciding whether to sue, settle, or pursue a case can be confusing and emotionally charged. Legal advice helps people make important decisions about which course to pursue. Regardless, the best practice is to consult an attorney immediately after a car accident or other injury. If possible, injury victims should always document the details of their motorcycle injuries, work injuries, or other legal claims.
The practice specializes in personal injury law, but it also handles violations of personal rights. Sexual harassment, workplace violence, breach of contract, wrongful termination, and civil rights violations routinely occur in the modern workplace, but victims of these rights violations enjoy the freedom to seek legal remedies. Legal action could put a stop to the offensive behavior and qualify for cash damages in compensation.
