Orange County Personal Injury Lawyer Dan Carlton Comments on Report about Tour Bus Accident Resulting in 10 Injuries

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2013

Irvine, California personal injury lawyer Dan Carlton said the next several weeks may be a difficult time for victims of a recent crash involving a tour bus headed to a casino in Southern California.

The bus accident, which occurred near Temecula, resulted in injuries to 10 people, according to an NBC 4 report (Tour Bus Crashes on Way to Southern California Casino, Sept. 2).

According to NBC 4, the driver told California Highway Patrol officers that he noticed a brake problem before the bus crashed into a ditch. The accident is under investigation, according to the report.

Injuries from bus accidents should not be taken lightly, said Carlton, who represents victims of negligence and families who lost loved ones in accidents. Its critical for victims to seek medical attention immediately and continue to follow up with their doctors. What might seem like a minor injury might get worse with time.

Carlton said bus accident victims and their families have legal rights.

While this particular incident is under investigation, in general a bus company has a duty of care to its passengers, Carlton said. This means they must check to make sure brakes, tires, lights and all equipment is functioning properly. And they also must keep records of bus maintenance. If an accident occurs, a company might be held legally responsible for the victims injuries if a mechanical problem is found to be a contributing factor.

NBC 4 reported that the bus was carrying 19 people on Sunday night when it crashed on its way to Pauma Casino, about 50 miles north of San Diego. The bus, unable to stop while entering a curve, slammed into a guard rail and then hit trees and a boulder on the right side of the road, according to NBC 4. Police said they are planning a full investigation to determine if the bus crash was due to mechanical error or driver error, NBC 4 reported.

NBC 4 reported that details of the injuries were not immediately available, but police said people had various complaints of pain.

Carlton said victims injured in bus accidents may be entitled to compensation for their losses. A personal injury lawyer can help them pursue monetary support and closure, Carlton said. The attorney for a bus accident victim also can help send a message that negligence by bus companies will not be tolerated. Companies need to be held accountable when they fail in their duty of care to passengers.

New York Construction Accident Lawyer David Perecman Empathizes with Construction Worker Shot in Heart with Nail Gun

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2013

Carpenter Eugene Rakow, 58, was working on a neighbors decking when he shot himself with a nail gun. The spike punctured his chest wall and missed his coronary artery by just 2mm, reported Fox News (10.3.13). Attorney at Law David Perecman can empathize with Rakows need for help paying the bills. The self-employed worker underwent open-heart surgery to remove the nail, but did not have health insurance.

Rakows daughter set up a Paypal account for donations to pay the medical bills, said Fox News.

Medical debt following an accident is a cause of financial struggle for many people Ive worked with on cases ranging from personal injury and auto accidents to workers compensation, said Perecman.

According to CNBC (6.25.13), medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy filings in the U.S.

Employees who are covered by workers’ compensation may have their doctor and hospital bills covered by workers’ compensation. Workers not covered may include independent contractors or the self-employed. For those not covered by workers’ comp, a lawsuit against negligent parties may provide the medical coverage an injured worker needs to pay the bills. A personal injury claim may also result in the compensation a worker needs to cover the medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages suffered in a workplace injury.

Businesses or people found to be liable for causing the plaintiffs injuries will typically need to pay for the injured partys medical expenses, said Perecman.

For more than 30 years, the construction accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm in New York have aggressively helped injured workers and-or their families obtain compensation following construction accidents in New York. Contact The Perecman Firm at 212-977-7033.

Fort Worth, Texas Car Accident Lawyer Jason Stephens Comments on Recent Drunk Driving Arrests

Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) June 23, 2013

In the wake of several high-profile DWI arrests involving members of Fort Worth and Dallas law enforcement agencies, Dallas-Fort Worth car accident lawyer Jason Stephens of Stephens, Anderson & Cummings, LLP, said its important for all drivers to follow the law.

People who drink and drive in Dallas and Fort Worth gamble with their lives and the lives of every single driver, passenger, and pedestrian they come into contact with, said Stephens, whose firm has represented people seriously injured in Texas car accidents.

In a June 11 story published by NBC 5 titled Two Dallas-Fort Worth Officers Investigated for Alcohol-Related Offenses, it was revealed that two Fort Worth police officers were either arrested or seriously injured in incidents only one day apart.

One officer was arrested for allegedly operating a boat while intoxicated, endangering himself and a child in the process, according to the article. The other officer crashed his motorcycle after a truck had failed to yield at a road sign, resulting in serious injuries to the officer and a female passenger, according to the article. The NBC 5 article stated that investigators are waiting for results of the officers blood test and suspect he was driving under the influence.

Weeks before, according to a June 1 WFFA article titled Dallas Officer Facing DWI Charge, a 22-year veteran of the Dallas police force was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. Another Dallas police officer, too, was arrested on a DWI charge in nearby Rockland after police responded to reports of an accident and suspected intoxication to be a factor, according to the report.

Regardless of who is behind the wheel, the attorneys at Stephens, Anderson & Cummings, LLP, know that drunk driving is a serious offense that can have deadly consequences, Stephens said.

Its not uncommon for drunk drivers to engage in risky behaviors such as speeding, ignoring road signs, and reckless driving, Stephens said. Rear-end accidents and rollover accidents are also common in these cases, with any accident at risk of turning fatal. Victims of these serious drunk driving accidents demand strong legal representation from an experienced drunk driving accident lawyer at the offices of Stephens, Anderson & Cummings, LLP.

New York Personal Injury Lawyer Reminds Drivers to to Look Out for Bicyclists Following Death of Amazon.coms First CFO

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, a New York law firm that represents bicyclists injured in accidents, urges drivers to be on the look out for bicyclists. Amazon.com’s first CFO was killed in a bicycle accident when she collided with a delivery minivan that turned left, directly in front of her bicycle, reported USA Today (9.20.13).

Joy Covey, 50, was wearing a helmet and riding on a rural road in Woodside, California, when she collided with the van, said USA Today. The accident is under investigation.

Every time a bicycle and an auto or truck collide, the larger vehicle will win, said personal injury lawyer Perecman.

According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, there were 5,819 police reported crashes involving bicyclists in 2011. Those crashes resulted in 5,738 injuries and 57 fatalities. Human factors were determined to be the primary cause of 43 of the fatal bicycle accidents.

Motorists need to pay close attention when driving near bicyclists and pass them only at a safe distance, said Perecman. Bicyclists do not have the tons of protective steel surrounding them like the occupants of cars and trucks do.

Drivers of vehicles can also take a number of other responsible actions to avoid tragic bicycle/motor vehicle accidents.


Drive defensively and share the road.

Give cyclists plenty of clearance when approaching them with the intention to pass.

If there is approaching traffic, slow down to allow the oncoming vehicle to proceed then pass the bicyclist and the oncoming vehicle at the same time

Make scanning for bicyclists second nature when making a right hand turn. Look to the right and then down the side of the vehicle to make sure there are no bicyclists intending on going straight.

Stop and wait for the cyclist to turn if the bicycle is in the lane of traffic in front of the vehicle signaling for a left turn.

Obey the speed limit.

By taking basic precautions, drivers can help save lives and prevent injuries to cyclists, said Perecman.

MA Injury Lawyer Releases New Informational Graphic About Massachusetts Workers Compensation Coverage

(PRWEB) September 16, 2013

Massachusetts requires all employers to provide workers compensation coverage for their employees. This is an insurance program that covers certain expenses like weekly lost wages, medical and prescription bills, and other benefits. In order to qualify for benefits employees must have suffered a work-related injury. Employees should file the proper paperwork as soon as possible and keep copies. According to the Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents, 50% of all claims are disputed by the employer or insurance company (i). People whose benefits have been disputed or denied should talk to an workers compensation attorney. An experienced lawyer may be able to successfully appeal the denial and the employee does not pay attorneys fees because the law requires the insurer to pay these fees. Additionally, if a claim is not successful no attorneys fees will be charged if the lawyer uses a contingency fee.

Workers compensation provides coverage for employees because on the job injuries can occur in any environment. In addition to this insurance program, employers also have to take employee complaints about safety and health seriously. A recent settlement between the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and True North Hotel Group has reaffirmed that every employee has the right to raise workplace safety and health concerns without fear of retaliation or termination. According to a recent press release from OSHA, this settlement was reached after True North Hotel Group fired a Massachusetts employee who raised such concerns. The employee then filed a whistleblower claim with OSHA and it determined that the complaint had merit. The company agreed to pay $ 22,225 to settle the claim and it also agreed to provide whistleblower training at its nationwide locations. This training includes posting factsheets, providing new hires with materials on the subject, and training employees who are in managerial and supervisory roles (ii).

The Massachusetts workers’ compensation infographic provides steps to take after an injury in order to improve the chances of obtaining benefits. dOliveira & Associates has helped injured and disabled people in Southern New England for more than two decades. The law firm works with some of the more experienced MA workers compensation lawyers, who use a contingency fee. This means that there are no fees unless they are successful and if they are successful then the insurer pays these fees. To contact the firm call 1-800-992-6878 or submit a contact form online.
