How Can You Assert Your Rights in a Rockwall County Personal Injury Case?

Terrell is Kaufman County’s Budding Business and Recreational Hub

People on the roadways. As more businesses and people move into town, Terrell is going to see an uptick in personal injury and wrongful death cases. The numbers simply go hat-in-hand with one another. The bigger the city, the more accidents and deaths related to motor vehicle travel.

We get it. Lawyers, in general, get a bad rap. We are portrayed on TV as money hungry people who will do anything to get ahead. We readily admit that there are those in this industry that are that way, especially in personal injury. But, let me ask you this: are there people like that in your industry? I bet there are. There is probably a lot of them, and I would not for one second automatically think that is what you were simply because you work in the same industry as those people. At Guest and Gray, we work hard for our clients.

At Guest and Gray, our goal is to serve the people of our local community and protect them from being taken advantage of by insurance companies, hospitals and medical providers. That is our number one priority. After you have been injured in an accident, a lot of things happen: you are hurt. You need treatment, so you go to the hospital and then probably follow up treatments, etc.. That is expensive. Emergency hospital care can cost upwards of $100,000 depending on the types of treatments performed. On top of that, your car is messed up and either needs to be fixed or replaced. Your own health insurance company will pay for a lot of the medical bills, but they will want a cut out of any personal injury settlement you get. So, they will be hounding you about settling. The at-fault insurer will give you LOTS of run around about how much they are actually going to cover and what amounts they will not. You may be missing time from work.

personal_injury_law-300x215Res Ispa Loquitur is one of those cool old latin legal terms that has made its place in modern law and is here to stay. It is one of the more useful ones, as well, especially in medical malpractice claims.

The term Res Ipsa Loquitur literally translated means “the thing itself speaks”. In law, it means that the occurrence which brought about the injury would not, and could not, have happened absent a negligent act. It is a way of presuming negligence without having to prove it with a lot of evidence. What is a good example of that? A sponge. Yep, a sponge.

….. A sponge that was left in a person’s abdomen during surgery that was left there with “no medical justification for leaving it there.” Yeah, Res Ipsa Loquitur definitely should apply there. Leaving a sponge or other object in a person’s body after surgery can lead to infection and even death. The fact that a sponge or other foreign object was made to remain in a person’s body after surgery can only have happened because someone forgot to remove it. Therefore, the fact that it is even there is due to someone, namely the doctor conducting the surgery, was negligent in failing to remove it. Period. End of story.
