Traveling by vehicle is one of the main ways that people get around. However, because not every driver operates their vehicle in a safe manner, this means people can get severely hurt. Drivers may be reckless by speeding, running a red light, tailgating, or another behavior that puts the lives of others in jeopardy. If you have been injured in a car accident due to a careless driver, then you could be owed more compensation than you realize. In fact, insurers often undervalue a claimant’s situation so that they don’t have to pay them as much. But with representation from a DC injury lawyer, you have someone advocating for your fair settlement.
A Doctor’s Mistake
When a medical professional, such as a doctor, nurse, or other practitioner commits an error in regards to a patient, this can lead to injury, illness, or fatality. A doctor’s mistake can take on various forms, including but not limited to medication prescriptions, treatment plans, diagnosis, failure to run testing or diagnostics, misinterpreting lab results, surgical errors, misuse of anesthesia, improper use of birthing tools, and more. By law, doctors must abide by certain standards of care when treating patients, and can be liable for how patients were harmed due to grave mistakes. If you suspect a doctor has made a mistake which led to your worsened condition, now is the time to reach out to our team so we can evaluate your case.
Dog Bite Attack
Most people would agree that a dog truly is a man’s best friend. But this doesn’t mean they are incapable of causing harm. Dogs may bite or attack for several reasons, such as due to fear, protecting their family or environment, or guarding a valued item. Owners by law are responsible for how their dog behaves, so if their animal were to ever bite someone else and their own negligence was an aspect of that, then they may have to pay for the victim’s medical bills and other losses. Dog bites can be painful, emotionally traumatic, and leave behind lasting scars.
