More than one million slip and fall accidents occur in the United States every year. People suffer traumatic brain injuries, fractures, and other life-altering outcomes which require surgeries and rehabilitation. Slip and fall accidents cause death and also result in many lawsuits being filed.

Property owners and their managers have to deal with a lot when it comes to day-to-day running of their premises. Each property has it’s own vulnerabilities and concerns. Careful attention to injury-prevention and safety of employees, customers and visitors is essential for the continued success of any enterprise.

Whether you decide to file a third-party insurance claim with the property owner's insurer, or take the matter to court right away via a personal injury lawsuit, a number of Texas laws and legal doctrines will almost certainly affect your case. Two of the most important of these are the statute of limitations deadline for filing a slip and fall lawsuit, and "shared fault" rules that can affect your right to recover compensation if you bear some amount of responsibility for the accident.

Medical records are crucial because they can make or break the case. Your medical records are needed to prove your injuries, the severity of your injuries, and the treatment that you have received. If you enlist the services of a medical malpractice attorney, your attorney requires them to:

  • Determine if the injuries sustained were caused by the defendant’s negligence.
  • Decide damages and liable parties.
  • Recognize any loopholes that can hurt your case.
  • Prepare for expert review.

Medical record retrieval can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive process.

A PATIENT'S RIGHTS UNDER HIPAA.

The State and Federal laws govern how you and others may access your medical records. The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) ensures your right to privacy, limiting who can access and receive your private medical information. The HIPAA has also established a regulatory framework for accessing your medical records which includes:

More than 14 million children in the country are in some form of day care each day. Children deserve the safest and healthiest environments where they can learn and grow. Parents need to take extra precautions by interviewing caregivers and examining facilities carefully before leaving their child at a day care provider.

Negligence in a day care setting is the breach of the day care provider’s duty to the children, which is to treat them with reasonable care. This duty includes keeping children safe and providing for their physical, emotional, and psychological needs, including proper food, rest, and appropriate activities within a secure environment.

Facts about Childhood Injuries

  • More than 12,000 people between the ages of 0 and 19 die from unintentional injuries each year.
  • More than 9 million people in the same age group are seen in emergency rooms for injuries each year.
  • Children between the ages of 1 and 4 had the highest rate of nonfatal falls.

When parents and guardians drop their children off at daycare or put them on the bus in the morning, they do so with the assumption that the adults in charge of their care will keep them safe. No parent expects a phone call during the workday telling them that their child has suffered an injury after being involved in an accident. Unfortunately, these phone calls are made every day throughout Texas.

Walking on streets in TEXAS is becoming increasingly dangerous with each passing year. The Governor Highway Safety Association had predicted that in 2019, there would be 6,600 pedestrian deaths in the country. This figure was the highest number of pedestrian deaths recorded in more than 30 years. The report also projected that pedestrian deaths would account for 17% of all traffic related deaths in 2019.

Most victims of pedestrian accidents require months or even years of intensive medical treatment and rehabilitation before they recover. Pedestrians have no protection if they are involved in an accident unlike motorists who have seatbelts and airbags, or motorcyclists and bicyclists who wear helmets and other protective and safety gear.

GROUPS OF PEOPLE MOST LIKELY TO BE INVOLVED IN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS.

While any pedestrian is in danger of being involved in an accident, certain groups of people are at a higher risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following are most at risk:

Ride sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft have become increasingly popular all across the country. This meteoric rise in the popularity of these companies is based on the convenience of being able to book a ride from your phone, getting picked up in a few minutes from your preferred location and having to pay a price for a trip much lower than a conventional taxi.

However, as the number of Uber and Lyft vehicles on our roads increase, the chances of accidents involving drivers of these ride sharing companies also rises. If a driver of an Uber or Lyft hit you while you were driving, biking or walking or if you were a passenger in an Uber which was involved in an accident, you should immediately seek help from a experienced Houston Board Certified Uber and Lyft accident lawyer.

HOW YOU COULD BE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT INVOLVING AN UBER OR LYFT?
