Negligence on Cruise Ships: Holding The Cruise Lien Responsible

Recently, a Miami jury awarded nearly $2 million to a former Royal Caribbean Cruise crew member for her injuries sustained due to the negligence of the common carrier. Teresa Di Trapani was awarded $388,000 for past lost earnings, nearly $710,000 for the loss of earning capacity, $95,000 for past medical expenses, $610,000 for pain and suffering, disability or physical defect as well as payment for the loss capacity of the enjoyment of life. The jury also awarded her $92,250 for past maintenance. It’s a big ticket for the inattention of the cruise line, which ultimately dramatically changed her life.
She first accused Royal Caribbean Cruise Line for allegedly failing to provide prompt and adequate medical care when her right kidney failed.

Filing A Wrongful Death Lawsuit For A Work Related Fatality

On the job wrongful death claims try to remedy the damages family members and loved ones suffer after the unexpected loss of their deceased loved one. Although there will never be enough money that is measureable to the impact this person had on their loved ones, filing such a claim can bring relief to the costs of after-life care. In doing so will be worth the try because there may be a legal remedy; especially if the death was linked to negligence in the construction industry.

Fatal work injuries involving contractors accounted for 17 percent of all fatal work injuries in 2014. Out of 4, 251 worker fatalities in private industry in the calendar year of 2014, 874 or 20.5% were in construction.

7 Most Common Work Related Injuries

Injuries on the job can occur anytime and under nearly every conceivable circumstance.  You are entitled to worker’s compensation coverage the minute you begin work for an employer.  A common misconception is that you have to be employed for 90 days before you’re entitled to worker’s compensation benefits.  Not true.  Anytime you sustain an injury or work related condition, you’re entitled to worker’s compensation benefits.  Below are some of the most common types of work related injuries that occur on the job, or as a result of exposure on the job.  The list is by no means a complete list of all types of work related injuries.  If you, a friend, or family member, is uncertain about whether the injury is work related, contact our office for a free consultation.

I Signed a Nursing Home Arbitration Agreement – What Are My Legal Options?

Placing a beloved family member into a nursing home is emotionally painful. Discovering that they were abused or neglected by the staff of the nursing home is heart wrenching and infuriating. Plaintiffs in nursing home cases want to sue for compensatory and punitive damages on behalf of their loved ones but often run aground in their efforts due a clause called the arbitration agreement.

Blunt Force Head Trauma - Cause & Effect

When we hear the term blunt force head trauma we may immediately think of violent crimes like assault. This is because the term is frequently used in the news when the exact cause of injury is not yet known. “The victim was taken to the hospital with injuries resulting from blunt force head trauma,” would typify a line from the morning news. The truth is that blunt force head trauma can be caused by any blow to the head which does not penetrate the skull.

What is a Carpel Tunnel Injury?

The American Academy of Family Physicians has found that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) affects approximately three to six percent of all adults in the United States. While the percentage may sound small, it means that as many as 15 million people may suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist.” The median nerve is responsible for controlling the movement of the thumb and first three fingers. This “pressing” or “squeezing” on the nerve tunnel makes that canal smaller, resulting in an irritation of the nerve.

Chris Zachar is a nationally recognized trial attorney. Although my practice is in Clearwater, we have interacted with Chris multiple times on several issues including Floridians who were injured in Arizona. Chris provides personal attention to his clients and the service his firm affords is quite impressive. However, the most important factor in judging Chris as a lawyer is his track record in taking cases to trial. Insurance carriers are well aware of his reputation. Hence the reason we would not hesitate to recommend Chris Zazhar and Zachar Law Firm to anyone who has been physically injured due to the negligence of an individual or corporation.

Steven Gursten has a well earned national reputation as one of the premier plaintiff civil trial attorneys in the U.S. I have personally worked with both Steven and his law firm on behalf of two clients on separate cases wherein the individual resided in Florida but was injured in Michigan. He is a phenomenal lawyer and an even better person. His staff is equally a pleasure to deal with and the law firm is simply a first class operation. Steven was very attentive to my client's needs and he made certain that this was an easy process for them. I would not hesitate to recommend Steven Gursten or his law firm to anyone who has been physically injured due to the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. Steve is known as a pre-eminent trial lawyer, but I was surprised at just how humble and pleasant he is in our dealings. Finally, this is the lawyer you call when your dealing with a defendant with unlimited resources. Steve and his firm have the ability to deal with even the biggest corporate giants and hold them accountable for the harms they caused and the losses you have suffered. - Matthew A. Dolman, Esq.

Tina is an elite lawyer and I am proud to call her my friend. As a practicing trial lawyer, I can attest to the fact that very few of my colleagues actively litigate cases. Further, even fewer attorneys possess the resources, knowledge and experience to competently handle catastrophic injury cases. Tina Willis is an attorney that I would not hesitate in recommending her services to any individual or family that has been harmed due to the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. - Matthew Dolman

I have had the opportunity to work with Bill Hurst and Alexander Limontes on Indiana cases and they are truly among the finest trial attorneys and personal injury lawyers in the U.S., let alone Indiana. Bill and Alex provide phenomenal service and personal attention to their clients which is rare in a business dominated by television lawyers who spend significant funds to obtain clients whom they ignore and allow a paralegal to run the case. In fact, we often hear many individuals complain that they never speak to a lawyer during their case. Bill and Alex are just the opposite and clients have all reported back to me that they were extremely satisfied with the prompt and personal attention they received. Bill has a national reputation as a civil trial attorney which is well deserved. I would not hesitate to refer future clients (when the client either resides in Indiana or the accident took place there) to Bill Hurst and Alex Limontes.
