Chronic Pain Patients – Must We Live With It?

In our law practice, we see many people who live with chronic pain – frequently of the back and neck.  Often they try numerous therapeutic approaches such as pain medications, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, or even back and neck injections.  Unfortunately, those treatments do not always result in the complete elimination of pain.  Does that mean people who have achy backs and necks, arthritis, sore shoulders, and headaches must just learn to live with the discomfort?  Not always.  There may be a simple way to approach chronic pain that is of a muscular origin.

Corvette Recall – Faulty Hood Can Fly Open 

The 2020 Chevrolet mid-engine Corvette is undergoing a recall due to a faulty hood.  Drivers are being warned that they should remain alert for warning chimes and lights indicating that the car’s hood is not completely latched.  Failure to heed those warnings could result in the hood flying open while the car is in motion.  The Corvette recall is being issued in response to a number of complaints that have been made to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and to Chevrolet from drivers who report that their vehicle’s hood has sprung open while the car was being operated, obscuring the driver’s vision completely.

Child Passenger Safety in Autonomous Vehicles

Self-Driving Vehicles, also known as Autonomous Vehicles, are already being tested on the road in communities throughout the United States.  Given that, consumer advocates are urging regulators and manufacturers to take immediate action to promote child passenger safety.

Pain Awareness Month – Time Out for Empathy

September is Pain Awareness Month.  Millions of Americans suffer from conditions that cause chronic pain.  Often we may not know by looking at a person what he or she is going through.  Chronic pain is an unwanted yet constant companion for many of our clients at AutoAccident.com.  Part of our holistic approach to client care means we help our clients seek different avenues of pain management.  While surgery is an option for some, others are best cared for by other modalities such as chiropractic care, acupuncture, spinal injections, or physical therapy.  We also provide resources for our clients to seek nutritional support and options for gentle strengthening exercises such as yoga.  

Labor Day Celebrates American Workers

Monday, September 7, 2020, is Labor Day.  Each year we designate the day to remember the achievements and contributions that American workers have made to the country.  The holiday was founded in the late 19th century by the labor movement.  In 1894, it became a federal holiday.  Additionally, it is a traditional symbol for the last days of summer and the start of a new school year.  It is commonly celebrated (in non-pandemic years) with parades, parties, and sports events.

Understanding Catastrophic Injuries

In personal injury law, we often use the term “catastrophic injury,” but what does that actually mean?  There may be differing definitions, but one key aspect of an injury that makes it catastrophic is that the victim’s life never returns to the way it was prior to the injury.  Perhaps the simplest definition for catastrophic injuries is that they are life-changing.

Assessment of Personal Injury Damages

The facts of every automobile accident are unique.  As a result, each personal injury case is different, as well.  It is difficult to estimate how much a case will be worth, especially at the beginning.  There is no precise formula for assessing personal injury damages, but there are a few key categories that affect the value of nearly every case.  We explore three such categories below.
