Mississippi Workplace Injury Attorneys Talk About Marine Towing Accidents

Saturday, August 13th, 2016

Did you know that the leading cause of death among towing industry workers is falling off of vessels? Last year, six towing industry workers fell to their deaths. Fortunately, crew fatalities have been declining steadily overall within the industry. In 2015, there were seven deaths per hundred thousand employees in the towing industry, which is lower than the fifteen or so deaths per hundred thousand in the overall transportation sector that includes air, rail, trucking, and every other type of transportation. Within the towing industry, one hundred and nine injuries were reported in 2015, and only two of them were classified as severe. During that same year, most of the accidents involving towing vessels were not very serious and resulted in only minor injuries and damages.

Statistics like those mentioned above provide only a glimpse into the dangers of working in the towing industry. Tugboats have enormous amounts of horsepower, and they have many moving parts that can pose a risk to their crews, like giant winches, large steel tow lines, and rotating drums. Tugboats work in all kinds of weather, so decks can be slippery when wet or icy, or if oil spills onto them. Slips and falls are relatively common, and as mentioned above, falling overboard poses a great risk to life.

As is the case with any other industry, the owners of towing vessels have a duty to keep the work environment on their vessels reasonably safe. Workplace injuries on towing vessels are governed by the Jones Act, which enables injured workers to file causes of action for lost wages, pain, suffering, and other types of damages against their employers for damages in situations where either the employer or an agent of the employer was negligent. The Jones Act also provides a wrongful death cause of action for the survivors of seamen killed in workplace accidents.

The Jones Act mainly applies then the vessel is on the water, but much of the work of towing industry workers takes place at docks and terminals. Fortunately, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations apply to those locations, so the safety of towing industry workers is protected whether they are on land or the water.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorney Explains How You Can Still Recover An Award Even If You Are Partly To Blame

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

The defense will always try to blame the injured person for causing an accident. In years past, the injured party could not recover any award if they somehow contributed to causing the accident. The jury could return a verdict awarding zero dollars if the injured party, called the plaintiff in court, was merely one percent at fault. Courts observed over the years that this rule was very harsh and unjust. Mississippi was the first state in the U.S. to change that rule. The new rule allows for plaintiffs to receive a jury award even if they did something wrong that contributed to their injuries.

The new rule, called comparative negligence, is found in Mississippi’s statutes. The comparative negligence rule applies in wrongful death cases, personal injury cases such as car accidents, as well as property damage cases. The rule says that if the person injured, or the owner of the property or the person who is in control of the property that is damaged did something wrong, then the injured party does not automatically lose. The percentage of fault for which the plaintiff is responsible reduces the jury award by that amount.

The theory is relatively simple in practice. The jury must find a percentage of fault for both the plaintiff and the defendant. The jury assesses damages at the amount proven by the plaintiff. The plaintiff will win the full amount of the award if they jury found the plaintiff did not contribute to the injuries. The jury must reduce the award if they find the plaintiff contributed to the accident or his injuries. If the jury finds that the plaintiff somehow contributed to the injuries, then the jury must reduce the total award by the percentage of fault the jury assigns to the plaintiff.  It is possible, under this theory of law, for the plaintiff to be 99% responsible and the defendant 1% responsible for the accident. In that case, the jury would award the plaintiff 1% of the total award.

The defense in every personal injury, wrongful death, or property damage case will blame the plaintiff for their injuries. The defense will claim that the plaintiff did not use reasonable caution to avoid an accident. The defense, most often a lawyer for an insurance company, will argue if the plaintiff was not careful, then the defendant is not responsible for all of the injuries the plaintiff suffered. The argument is designed to keep the insurance payouts lower.

A person should always be careful but given human nature and the various distractions we face in our modern society we can easily slip up. A person can try to remember a few simple rules to avoid contributing to their injuries if they are indeed unlucky enough to be in an accident.  A driver must always remain vigilant and follow the rules of the road. Remember to make full stops at stop signs and red lights and yield when merging. Also, you should always use your directionals when turning. Never, ever, drink and drive. Also, you should never text and drive. Try not to use your mobile device at all while driving. If you must use your device, then switch to hands-free mode. Hands-free will help you keep your eyes on the road and not looking down at your cellphone.  Pedestrians should bear the same rules in mind. Pedestrians must exercise caution when walking in the street by crossing on the correct light, crossing at a corner, and paying attention while walking and not being distracted by a cellphone.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Explain What Happens At An Independent Medical Examination

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Courts permit independent medical examinations of plaintiffs in certain lawsuits. An independent medical examination, or IME, is a tool for the defense to use against a plaintiff to determine if the plaintiff has reached a full recovery or reached a medical result for treatment. Attorneys defending insurance companies commonly use IMEs to show that the plaintiff’s injuries have healed, or the plaintiff is not limited or permanently disabled in any way.

The defense cannot simply order you to go to a doctor you did not choose. The defense must ask the court hearing the case for permission to send a plaintiff to an IME. Generally speaking, however, the defense is entitled to ask the court to allow an IME if the plaintiff claims physical injuries caused by the defendant.  The court can order the plaintiff to attend an IME if the defendant shows there is “good cause” to send the plaintiff for the IME. The judge will not allow an IME unless the defendant shows why good cause exists for an IME. The IME can be a physical examination or a mental health examination.  The plaintiff’s medical condition must be an issue in the trial before a judge orders an IME.  The defense must give the plaintiff notice of when and where to appear. Also, the examination is not without strict boundaries. The IME’s limitations must be specifically spelled out, meaning the doctor cannot examine the plaintiff for anything and everything. The examination must be related to the injuries that are an issue in the case.

The defendant cannot show good cause simply because a plaintiff sues a defendant for damages stemming from injuries caused by the defendant. The defense must prove to the judge that there is no alternative but to have an IME. That means the defense has to look through all of the medical records produced in the case as well as all of the other sources of information at their disposal. Other sources of information include interrogatories or written questions, and depositions, especially depositions of medical experts.

The IME is limited to the order made by the judge. The time, place, identity of the qualified medical professional who will perform the examination as well as the scope of the examination. The defense is not allowed to select any physician it wants to perform the examination. These requirements make certain that the IME is conducted fairly, without stacking the deck for the defense.  The plaintiff should object to the doctor nominated by the defense if the doctor is known to be defendant-friendly or otherwise impartial in some respect.  The whole idea is to have an “independent” physician examine the plaintiff. It is often best that the parties agree on the doctor performing the exam. That way the plaintiff can feel comfortable knowing that she had a say in the process. The judge will appoint a doctor if neither party can agree on a physician. The plaintiff can feel comfortable in this situation as well because the physician will have no bias toward either side.

An IME can benefit the plaintiff. If the doctor who performed the IME writes a favorable report about the plaintiff’s condition, then the plaintiff can use that report in court to help prove her case.  In reality, if the results of the IME favor the plaintiff, the defendant will look to settle the case.

Mississippi Workplace Injury Attorneys Discuss Drillship Accidents

Sunday, April 24th, 2016

A seaman from Mississippi filed a lawsuit against his former employer and another company. The man claims that he was operating a high-pressure lance on a drillship when he fell, sustaining severe injuries. In his lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants did not give him the gear and equipment that he needed to do his job safely, among other things. The lawsuit also touches on issues involving whether there were unsafe working conditions on the drillship and whether the ship’s crew was adequate.

Drillships are one type of offshore oil and gas drilling rig. These enormous and powerful machines drill holes for the extraction of oil and gas. Drillships and other offshore oil and gas drilling rigs present significant safety hazards to the people who work on them. Between 2001 and 2010, there were over eight hundred fires and explosions on offshore drilling rigs. One thousand three hundred and forty-nine injuries and sixty-nine deaths occurred in these workplaces during that same period.

Some of the hazards that are present in an offshore drilling work environment are slippery surfaces, unfavorable weather conditions, heavy machinery, fires, explosions, and falls. As is the case in any workplace environment that involves the use of machinery, equipment failure can cause injury or death and improperly maintained equipment presents an increased risk of harm to the workers who use it. Crew members who do not receive proper training and support are at risk for injury, and they also put other workers at risk because they are unable to work safely or to support their co-workers in doing so. There are many ladders and stairs on a drillship, and falls from ladders, staircases, and other tall pieces of equipment may cause severe and sometimes fatal injuries. Oil and natural gas are combustible, so fires and explosions are a very real risk in offshore drilling workplaces.

If you work on a drillship and you get hurt, seek medical attention right away. Prompt treatment ensures that you can know the full extent of your injuries and begin receiving essential medical care right away. As is the case with any injury, immediate treatment provides the best possible chance at a full recovery. Missing work because of an injury could deplete your financial resources quickly. In addition to helping you recover sooner so that you can return to work, seeking treatment right away helps provide the documentation that will support your claim for damages.

Mississippi Products Liability Attorneys Discuss the Mirena IUD

Friday, April 1st, 2016

One option for birth control is the intrauterine device or IUD. There are two main categories of intrauterine devices, those made with hormones and those made without hormones. Mirena is one of only three types of hormonal IUDs that are on the market. Marketing materials for the Mirena IUD target mothers who already have children, touting the product as a simple, reversible, no-hassle birth control method. The Mirena IUD has caused some serious health issues, and there have been over one thousand lawsuits filed against the manufacturer of Mirena since 2011 due to damages and losses that may have been caused by the product.

A recent lawsuit involving the Mirena IUD claims that the device caused Intracranial Hypertension, a condition which is also known as pseudotumor cerebri, or the dangerous and life-threatening buildup of fluid around the brain. When fluid builds up around the brain, the pressure inside of the skull becomes abnormally high, causing symptoms that include vision problems, severe headaches, and inability to tolerate light. The woman who filed the lawsuit experienced these symptoms and had a lumbar puncture performed to remove the excess fluid from her skull.

Other lawsuits alleging harm caused by the Mirena IUD involve situations where the IUD migrated after it was implanted, causing complications. Some of the damages suffered by plaintiffs in Mirena lawsuits include uterine perforation, miscarriage, organ damage, and ectopic, or tubal, pregnancies. Many of the lawsuits claim that the warnings provided with the product are insufficient and do not adequately communicate the risks associated with Mirena to those patients who are considering using it. At least one lawsuit alleges that the harm caused by the Mirena IUD resulted in a wrongful death. The plaintiff in the wrongful death lawsuit had a Mirena IUD implanted in 2009, and in 2013, she gave birth to a stillborn son. In her lawsuit, she states that the device became embedded in her uterine wall, greatly increasing the risk of harm to her fetus when the device did not prevent pregnancy like it was supposed to.

There have been many lawsuits that allege harm caused by the Mirena IUD, and the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation considered the possibility of consolidating the claims into a class action lawsuit. In 2014, the panel declined to consolidate the claims. The panel did not combine the claims into a class action lawsuit because the individual claims are not so similar to each other that it would make sense to treat them as a group. There are various types of harm alleged in the current lawsuits, and, for now, each claim will be handled individually. It is possible that claims could be consolidated in the future as new plaintiffs continue to come forward and file lawsuits.

Giddens Law Firm, P.A.: Support for Those Harmed by Defective Products

Medical devices like the Mirena IUD often provide some health benefits, but the patients who use them are also at risk for serious side effects. If you believe that you are experiencing an injury or illness in connection with your use of a Mirena IUD, seek medical attention right away. If your IUD played a role in your injury or illness, the Mississippi Products Liability Attorneys of the Giddens Law Firm, P.A. may be able to help you.

Mississippi Workplace Accident Attorneys Discuss Barge Accidents

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

A recent barge accident on the Mississippi River has claimed the life of a worker. The accident occurred near the U.S. 190 bridge. While little information is known about this particular accident because it happened very recently and because it is currently under investigation, this tragedy calls attention to the dangers of working on the river. Many workers work on or near the river every day, and, just as is the case with any other type of workplace, there is the potential that injury or even death may occur at work.

The Mississippi River is a very busy waterway, with barge and towboat traffic that can be rather heavy at times. The towboats and barges that operate on the Mississippi and on other major waterways can be dangerous places to work, especially in crowded areas where there are many vessels in close proximity to each other on the water. Water and weather conditions can change suddenly, which can increase accident risk dramatically. Workplace accidents on barges and towboats can occur when vessels collide, as well as when vessels are moving along the waterway and even when they are docked or at anchor. Slips, falls, and other sudden injuries can occur on barges and towboats, as can injuries associated with lifting heavy things and operating machinery.

Since workers on barges and towboats can be seriously injured or killed, it is important that these workers and their families understand that the worker’s compensation laws which govern most workplace injuries do not apply to individuals who are injured while they are working on navigable waters. When a worker is injured while working on navigable waters, a law called the Jones Act serves as the means by which the injured worker can collect damages.

The Jones Act differs from ordinary workers’ compensation in a couple of ways. One major difference is that a worker must prove negligence on the part of their employer before they can be awarded damages. Another difference is that the Jones Act provides for payment of some categories of damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment, that regular worker’s compensation does not. The Jones Act also provides free medical care and maintenance payments that help injured workers pay for their living expenses as they recover from their injuries.

Giddens Law Firm, P.A.: Support for Mississippi Workplace Accident Victims

Barge and towboat accidents are different than regular worker’s compensation cases, but that does not have to stop you from recovering for your injuries or damages. If you were hurt while you were working on navigable waters, you may be eligible for one or more types of relief under the Jones Act. An experienced Mississippi workplace accident attorney can help you understand the various types of relief that may be available to you, as well as how you can pursue any relief that you may qualify for.

Mississippi Workplace Injury Attorneys Talk about Construction Accidents

Monday, March 28th, 2016

A recent construction accident in Shelby County claimed the life of a construction worker. The worker was working on a bridge project when he became trapped between two pieces of equipment. Despite the efforts of medical personnel to treat the worker’s injuries, he died at the scene of the accident. Unfortunately, fatal construction accidents like this recent tragedy do sometimes occur and numerous nonfatal construction injuries happen on job sites across Mississippi and elsewhere.

If you are a construction worker, you may already know that your job is more dangerous than many other jobs. There are numerous types of hazards that can be found on all types of construction sites, from road and bridge construction to building homes or office buildings. Falls are one of the most common causes of construction site injuries, and falls are also a leading cause of construction-related fatalities. Other common causes of construction site injuries and deaths include being crushed in between heavy objects or machinery, as happened in the recent fatality described above, electrocution, and being struck by moving or falling objects or machinery. Injuries caused by exposure to chemicals or by repetitive motion are also not uncommon among construction workers.

The risks that lead to construction accidents can be reduced by careful attention to safe work practices, but they cannot be eliminated entirely. If you work in construction, it is important that you know what to do after a construction accident in case you get injured on the job. When you get hurt, you will more than likely need to leave the job site to obtain medical care. It is important that you do so right away, so that you injuries can be treated and you can begin to heal. Be sure to fill out an accident report right away, and make sure that your employer gets a copy of it. Keep a copy of it for yourself, in addition to a detailed set of notes about what happened, so that you can remember all of the important details later on. It is also important to speak with a workplace injury attorney so that you can file a claim for damages that can help you recover financially from your accident while you work to recover from it physically.

Depending upon the type and severity of your injury, you may have to take additional time off of work to recover from your injury. Continue to document your experience with notes, pictures, and other information. When your doctor begins to discuss your recovery in the context of going back to work, pay close attention to their recommendations. It can be difficult to learn that you may not be able to return to the job that you had before you were injured. Your doctor may be able to help you learn about what other work options may be suitable for you.

Giddens Law Firm, P.A.: Support for Individuals Affected by Workplace Injuries

If you are a construction worker who has been hurt at work, you may be interested in filing a worker’s compensation claim.

The Mississippi Worker’s Compensation Attorneys of the Giddens Law Firm, P.A. may be able to help you with your claim. To learn more, call us today, at (601) 355-2022.

Mississippi Birth Injury Attorneys Talk about What Birth Injuries Look Like

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

The term “birth injury” does not, on its own, refer to any one specific type of injury. It refers to an injury that occurred during labor or delivery. There are a variety of types of birth injuries, and they are not all visible immediately after the baby is born. While some birth injuries may be noticeable right away, such as injuries that affect the nerves of the brachial plexus, other birth injuries do not get discovered until parents begin to notice things about their child that indicate that there may be something amiss.

Delays in reaching developmental milestones are one clue that may lead parents to investigate the possibility that their child was injured at birth. Every child develops at his or her own rate, but there are general and widely accepted guidelines that describe ranges of time within which almost all children do certain things like making eye contact or crawling. Pediatricians are often very helpful in working with parents to determine whether a child has a developmental delay or, in the alternative, whether the child is taking his or her time with a particular milestone. If there is a developmental delay, a pediatrician may be able to investigate possible causes of the delay, including the possibility that the delay is caused by a birth injury.

Seizures, tremors, spasms, or other abnormal body movements, are another thing that can alert parents to the possibility that their child was injured at birth. Not every child who has seizures or abnormal movement was injured at birth, but it is important to discuss them with your child’s pediatrician right away, so that the pediatrician can look into the cause of the seizures or abnormal movements and help your child obtain any necessary treatment.

If you are working with your pediatrician to address an issue with your child’s health and development and you suspect that your child may have a birth injury, it is important to think back to your birth experience and remember as much about it as you can. In particular, it is useful to think about whether risk factors for birth injuries were present during your labor and delivery. Some risk factors include the use of forceps or a vacuum extractor or an emergency cesarean birth. If you had an emergency c-section, try to remember as much as you can about how the decision to operate was made by medical staff and how much time passed between the decision to operate and the time that your surgery began. Any and all information that you are able to remember could help doctors determine whether your child was injured at birth.

Giddens Law Firm, P.A.: Mississippi Birth Injury Attorneys

If your child is exhibiting signs of a birth injury, it is only natural to wonder whether their injury was caused by medical negligence. Some birth injuries will eventually heal, while others may require additional care throughout your child’s lifetime. A birth injury lawsuit could help your family provide the support that your child needs. The Mississippi Birth Injury Attorneys at the Giddens Law Firm, P.A. may be able to help you.

Mississippi Medical Malpractice Attorneys Discuss Common Reasons for Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

A 2015 survey conducted by Medscape reveals the most common causes of medical malpractice. Nearly four thousand primary care physicians and specialists participated in the survey. Survey participants were fairly evenly distributed among age groups, but there were a much larger number of male participants (70%) than female participants (30%). One of the things that this study revealed is the percentage of doctors who are sued for malpractice, which is just under sixty percent. The study also shows that over half of the time, it is not a single doctor who is named as a party in a medical malpractice suit, but rather a group of doctors and other parties.

The two most common reasons for medical malpractice lawsuits are equally common, with thirty one percent of lawsuits being related to failures to diagnose and thirty one percent of lawsuits being associated with abnormal injuries. Some of the specific types of claims that were made in those categories are failure to diagnose cardiac emergency and late or missed cancer diagnosis. Other common reasons for medical malpractice lawsuits include failure to treat, medication errors, poor documentation, lack of informed consent, and failure to follow safety procedures. Some of the specific types of cases that are included in the aforementioned categories are postoperative infections, birth defects, hospital room falls, and injury or death during surgery.

An interesting outcome of the Medscape study is that it sheds some light on how long medical malpractice cases typically take from start to finish. Just under twenty percent of the doctors involved in the study reported that their medical malpractice cases took less than a year. Over thirty percent of the cases were resolved in between one and two years’ time. Approximately the same amount of cases lasted for three to five years, and a few doctors reported that their medical malpractice cases lasted longer than five years.

One of the things that doctors talked about during their participation in the Medscape study is whether they planned to take any action to change the way that they practiced medicine in order to serve their patients better and avoid future medical malpractice lawsuits. Many of the doctors involved in the survey said that they planned to be more meticulous about documentation. Others plan to improve the ways in which they communicate with patients, including making more time to discuss patients’ questions and concerns.

Mississippi Workplace Liability Attorneys Discuss Injuries Caused by Overexertion

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

One of the most common causes of workplace injuries year after year is overexertion. Overexertion involves pushing the body past its physical limits in some way. Lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, and engaging in repetitive motions are some of the ways that people exert themselves at work, and sometimes those exertions go too far. It is estimated that injuries caused by overexertion cost employers over fifteen billion dollars in 2013 alone.

Injuries that are caused by overexertion can be either acute or chronic in nature. Many cases of acute pain can be remedied with treatment, although in some cases, particularly where the injury was caused by a repetitive motion, the pain can become chronic, resulting in conditions like osteoarthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome. It is important that workers in all professions understand the risks associated with overexertion injuries, because they are not strictly limited to occupations that require a great deal of physical labor like construction or forestry. Plenty of individuals who work mainly in an office environment sustain overexertion injuries, either related to repetitive motions like typing or related to the occasional exertion like lifting a heavy package.

Fortunately, many overexertion injuries are preventable. Workplace training programs often address potential overexertion risks and educate employees about how they can avoid overexerting themselves by using safe work practices like team lifting and practicing good posture, taking recurrent breaks, and knowing their personal physical limitations and choosing to work within those limitations.

Some types of injuries that are related to overexertion are caused by fatigue. Fatigue affects many Americans, as they push their minds and bodies past their limits trying to get as much done each day as they possibly can. While an occasional late night at the office is not likely to cause an injury, getting insufficient rest on a regular basis can put a person at risk for accidents and injuries. Fatigue increases the likelihood that a person will make a poor decision regarding exertion or they will not realize that lack of sleep has sapped their strength and attempt to exert themselves in a way that their body simply cannot accommodate at that time.

Just as fatigue can increase an individual’s risk of overexertion, dehydration and hypoglycemia also increase overexertion risk. Sometimes, workers feel as though they are too busy to eat or drink at work. Unfortunately, this can lead to severe dehydration, especially in workplaces where the jobs are physically demanding, or hypoglycemia, if employees go without eating for prolonged periods of time.

Giddens Law Firm, P.A.: Supporting Mississippi Workplace Liability Plaintiffs

If you experienced an overexertion injury at work, you may be facing a long road to recovery. Fortunately, you may be able to recover for the damages that you have suffered.
