Defective Guardrails. Defective Guardrail Lawsuit.

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

One may think that a guardrail cannot be defective.  However, that thought is false.  A guardrail can be defective in the following ways:

1) Design defect of the guardrail; 2) manufacturers defect of the guardrail; 3) incorrect installation of the guardrail; 4) faulty guardrail maintenance; and 5) negligent or shoddy guardrail repairs.

The purpose of a guardrail is obvious.  But, what most people do not know is that a guardrail must react to a collision in a specific way.  If someone is involved in an accident on the road involving a guardrail and that accident was catastrophic in nature, the accident many times could have or should have been minor if it wasn’t for the guardrail.

The key to successfully litigating a defective guardrail case is to follow up with an attorney immediately so that the proper photographs and investigation of the guardrail can be conducted by your lawyers experts.

If you or a loved one were involved in an accident and a guardrail was hit please call the Guardrail Lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT for a free consultation.  No fee unless we win your case.  We have convenient locations all over New York.  Hospital and home visits are available.

Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms & Signs – Call 1(800)WE-FIGHT

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

Minor traumatic brain injury is a very difficult condition to diagnose and goes largely undiagnosed because it frequently presents in car accidents or any type of accident that, seemingly, does not involve severe impacts.

Even if the impact was seemingly slight, as long as the impact was jarring enough you may be suffering from minor traumatic brain injury.  An impact involving whiplash or a jerking of the neck or a head impacting with a windshield or other part of the car or object puts one at risk.  As such, if you have experienced this you should see a neurologist right away.

The warnings signs or symptoms of minor traumatic brain injury include but are not limited to difficulty concentrating, short term memory loss, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, and headaches.  If a neurologist determines you may be suffering from minor traumatic brain injury he will refer you to a neuropsychologist for cognitive testing.

If you were hurt in any type of accident you may be suffering from minor traumatic brain injury.  Choosing a lawyer experienced in minor traumatic brain injury cases is vital.  Call the today for a free, confidential consultation at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.

Traumatic brain injury can be caused by many types of accidents.  Unlike minor traumatic brain injury, traumatic brain injury lends itself to accidents involving severe impacts.

You usually see traumatic brain injury in accidents involving trucks or motorcycles or construction accident cases.  This list is not exclusive, obviously, and it should be noted that traumatic brain injury can also happen in seemingly less serious accidents.

Navigating through the complex medical records and reports meticulously when reviewing whether a person has sustained a traumatic brain injury is critical to success in the courtroom.

Attorneys experienced with traumatic brain injury cases have an advantage.  Choosing the right brain injury lawyers in New York makes all the difference.  If you or a loved one were in an accident and have sustained traumatic brain injury call the New York Brain Injury Lawyers right away at 1(800)WE-FIGHT.
