What are the Biggest Misconceptions about Vaccines?

Published on Jun 20, 2018 at 6:58 pm in Vaccine Injury.

In an age where anyone can pull up a website that verifies their beliefs, it can be difficult to recognize fact from fiction – especially when it comes to hot-button topics like vaccines.

How Often Do Most Personal Injury Cases Go to Court?

Published on Jun 13, 2018 at 6:56 pm in Personal Injury.

Four percent to five percent of the personal injury cases in the United States go to trial.  Most personal injury cases are settled pretrial.

A settlement occurs when an insurer or defendant makes an offer of payment to an injured person.  Accepting a settlement means that the plaintiff must sign a full liability release relinquishing all potential claims against the defendant arising out of the accident or incident.

Settlements are almost always offered in cases involving insurance companies, which is true for the vast majority of personal injury cases.  Insurance companies have the money to pay claims, expect to have to pay claims, and fear losing financial control of a claim that goes to trial.

What’s a Catastrophic Injury?

Published on Jun 6, 2018 at 5:51 pm in Personal Injury.

Some injuries may cause pain, require medical attention, and need time to heal, but eventually they do heal and you can return to your everyday life. Catastrophic injuries have a different outcome. These injuries often have long-term consequences and the person may never fully recover. Catastrophic injuries limit a person’s ability to work and often have mental repercussions as well. The trauma of the injury and the change in lifestyle can cause mental illnesses or personality changes.

Catastrophic injuries can also prove fatal. The sudden loss of a loved one is devastating, especially when it was due to negligence.  If a loved one has passed away because of catastrophic injuries, you can seek justice for them. A Milwaukee wrongful death lawyer from Urban & Taylor will stand up for your loved one and get you the compensation you deserve.
