Philadelphia Long Term Disability Lawyer: New Unum Disability Insurance Lawsuit - A new federal lawsuit filed against long term disability insurance provider Unum Insurance Company, Weltzer v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, alleges wrongful denial of a pharmaceutical worker’s long term disability claim. Pharmaceutical sales representative, Connie Weltzer, filed for long term disability under her Unum insurance policy after 16 years of employment.  Ms. Weltzer was disabled from work due to neck pain and assorted nerve damage which limited her arm mobility and sleep disorders.  These disabling conditions left Ms. Weltzer unable to drive or perform her work duties. Upon receipt of her long term disability claim, Unum requested that Weltzer file a disability claim with the Social Security Administration. Unum retained a third party company to file and pursue the Social Security claim. Weltzer alleges that the third party company filed the Social Security claim with inaccurate information including false statements that Weltzer suffered from Generalized Anx

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers Discuss Bus Safety Regulations - There are about 29,000 large buses operating in the US. These large buses, also known as motor coaches, carry approximately 700 million passengers on an annual basis in the US.  This rate is comparable to the domestic airline industry in terms of volume. There is a growing concern among safety advocates that not enough is being done to keep passengers safe in bus accidents.  Fifteen years ago, bus accident investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board recommended safety standard improvements were needed for large buses.  Advancements were needed to make it easier for passengers to exit a motor coach after a crash.  Proposed regulations would include procedures for different occupant groups such as children and seniors to easily exit out windows and emergency exits following a bus accident.  To date, this type of regulation has not been enacted. Two years ago Congress passed legislation which directed the Transportation Department to conduct research and testing on w

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers Highlight New Study on Traumatic Brain Injuries and Minorities - According to a new study recently released by the Kessler Foundation, minorities who suffer from traumatic brain injuries have lower treatment success rates. Traumatic brain injuries can result from catastrophic sports mishaps, motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents and other incidents of negligence including slip and fall accidents.  Most traumatic brain injuries require long term treatment. Many traumatic brain injury victims suffer from long term disability and never fully recover total cognitive functioning. The Kessler Foundation study, published in the medical journal Neurorehabilitation, followed long term treatment of traumatic brain injuries in minorities and Caucasians to determine effectiveness rates. This most recent study, along with data from a 2011 study, suggested that minority patients did not have the same long term treatment success rates as Caucasian patients.  Researchers speculate that unrealistic rehabilitative plans may account for this difference in

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers Report on Recall of Defective Medical Device - The Martin & Nelson personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia keep current on important product recalls that could potentially cause harm to area residents.  One of the latest products recalled by the FDA is a medical device designed to help individuals overcome birth injuries or catastrophic injuries resulting from trauma.   DePuy Synthes, a division of Johnson & Johnson, is the manufacturer of the Craniomaxillofacial Distraction System, which has been recalled due to reports of it causing severe injuries in patients. The Craniomaxillofacial Distraction System is a device that is implanted in the jaws of patients suffering from a birth injury or another type of traumatic injury.  The jaw implant system was created to elongate the jaw and make it more stable.  However, recent findings of a product defect with the medical device has prompted a massive recall designated as Class I.  FDA reserves issuing Class I recalls for products found to cause the most severe or fatal injuries.

Philadelphia Product Liability Lawyers Explain “Failure to Warn” - Millions of people use products each and every day that they believe are safe and will not harm them.  Unfortunately, this is not always the case.  Unsafe or defective products make it to the market each year and cause seriously injuries to consumers, either from a design flaw, manufacturing defect, or the failure to warn of a known or potential risk.  The Philadelphia personal injury lawyers at Martin & Nelson are concerned about the public’s safety and want consumers to always be alert and cautious when using everyday products. Manufacturers are required to provide products that: are well designed for their intended purpose; are safe when they are used for their intended purpose, and are packaged with directions on proper use and with adequate warnings about potential risks. Product warning labels as well as enclosed written instructions on proper use need to be visible, clear and concise.  Instructions should inform consumers on how to handle a product and how to correctly us

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers: Don’t Forget to Get a Police Report When You Are in a Car Accident! - Car accidents can be stressful events for all those involved.  During the chaos surrounding an automobile accident, many car accident victims may forget to obtain a police report which is a crucial record of events that can be helpful in a personal injury claim.  This can be a huge mistake for injured individuals who may later face significant expenses related to their accident. Police reports can provide important information to assist injured individuals in making claims against responsible parties. A common misconception is that all police reports cannot be used in court due to evidentiary rules.  Police reports can fall within the definition of hearsay in many courts because police officers do not usually see the actual accident but merely report on what other people say about the accident.  The Federal Rules of Evidence do generally bar hearsay which is out of court statements that are used to prove the facts of the case.  Hearsay is problematic because it often causes a “

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer, Lawren J. Nelson, Settles Slip and Fall Case for $155,000 - On May 24, 2011 the firm’s 41 year old female client (an independent cleaning contractor) went to the Defendants’ vacation home located in the Poconos to perform interior cleaning services.  After arriving in the morning and cleaning the inside of the home with several other workers, the client exited the front door of the home, took a few steps and slipped and fell to the ground on the middle landing of a railroad tie and slate staircase located between the driveway and the front door.  It had rained the day before this accident and the wood and slate walkway was damp and covered with moss and wet leaves which made it very slippery. In the years prior to this accident, the Defendant homeowners, had landscapers perform exterior “clean-ups” in the fall and spring months.  By the Defendants’ account there was a fall clean-up of leaves and debris in November of 2010.  The spring clean-up was scheduled by the Defendants to take place after the interior cleaning by the client

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers: Canadian Study Shows Increased Risk of Auto Accident During Pregnancy - A new study reveals that pregnant women are at a higher risk of getting into a serious car accident.  Researchers in Ontario determined that about one in 50 pregnant women will be involved in a serious crash during their pregnancy, often during the second trimester.  Although the connection between pregnancy and car accidents was not entirely clear, researchers speculate that the physical symptoms experienced in the second trimester may affect women’s ability to drive safely. The study, which was published in the May 12th issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, surveyed a group of 500,000 Ontario women.  The research team, led by Dr. Donald Redelmeier of the University of Toronto Department of Medicine and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences, recorded accident occurrences starting four years before delivery and concluding one year after delivery. Researchers examined whether common pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, and insomnia were distracting wom

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers Report on Two Product Recalls that Cause Fire Hazards - The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently issued two important safety recalls that pose a potential risk of fire.  The first recall involves smoke detectors that do not properly notify the homeowner in the event of a fire.  The other product recall is due to the risk of injury from candle flames that burn too high.  The Philadelphia personal injury lawyers at Martin & Nelson want to ensure that the public is aware of current product recalls in order to prevent injury and accident. Smoke Detector Product Recall Certain ESL and Interlogix brand 400 and 500 series smoke detectors are being recalled because of reports of radio interference with the hardwired system causing the alarm to malfunction.  As a result, the alarm does not sound.  The recall affects 33 models and a total of 144,000 smoke detectors.  The units were sold between March, 2013 and February, 2014.  The defective smoke detectors were sold at various security and alarm stores and installed in homes, co
