Medical malpractice cases arise when a medical patient has been injured through the improper action (or inaction) of a healthcare professional or medical facility.

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which care provided deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient. Standards and regulations for medical malpractice may vary by state. Medical professionals are required to maintain professional liability insurance to offset the risk and costs of lawsuits based on medical malpractice.

Employee rights arise from federal and state laws that, over time, have established various rules that govern the employer-employee relationship.
More broadly viewed, the phrase is often used to refer to rights not explicitly mentioned in law but inferred from legal protections.

When you suffer injury in an auto, truck, motorcycle or boating accident, you need an experienced lawyer to represent you.

Attorneys Al Priddy & Don Meade provide auto accident victims with the professional and ethical representation needed to protect your legal rights, pay your medicals and help you receive any punitive compensatory damages you are entitled to.

TBI is a major public health problem, especially among males ages 15 to 24, and among elderly people of both sexes 75 years and older. Children aged 5 and younger are also at high risk for TBI. Males account for two thirds of childhood and adolescent head trauma patients.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), results from damage to brain tissue caused by an external force. Leading causes of TBI are motor vehicle accidents, acts of violence, falls, sports and recreational injuries, lightening strikes, electric shocks, and blows to the head. TBI can occur without any outward physical evidence of injury or trauma. Examples include, whiplash, and shaken babies.

Accidents happen, but many times those accidents cause severe physical or psychological injuries that may result in incapacitation.

When accidents occur due to the negligence or fault of others, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from the person whose negligent conduct caused the injury compensation.

We provide accidental injury victims with the professional and ethical representation needed to protect your legal rights, pay your medicals and help you receive any punitive compensatory damages you are entitled to.

Al Priddy is an experienced maritime attorney who can help you determine whether you have the right to sue a negligent third party for damages and advises clients whether a maritime lawsuit represents a more complete recovery for them than a negligence claim under state law.

You do not necessarily have to be right next to the water to recover negligence damages under maritime law. If you drive a forklift and are injured a quarter mile inland while stacking cargo and the accident was caused by poorly secured loads or repacking at sea, you possibly have a claim against the owner of the vessel.

A “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” is the generic term for an injury which occurs when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. It includes falls as a result of water, ice or snow, as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard, such as a gap or hard to see hole in the ground.

The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates that in 2004, more than 8 million people were injured in falls.
