What is an Attractive Nuisance and How to Deal With Them

Attractive nuisances can have a significant impact on our home insurance policies. Let’s take a closer look.

An attractive nuisance sounds like an oxymoron and it is exactly that. Note that insurance companies just do not like them. So, you may be wondering what exactly they are, where they are and why they are considered a nuisance if they happen to be so attractive.

Attractive nuisances are sort of similar to fatal attraction, and very often we happen to find them in our own very backyards. They happen to be attractive to a demographic that can be best described as being one of the most unassuming victims, yes we are talking about children. You may have gone through the process of child-proofing your home to the best of your ability but know that there is a lot to child-proofing than having to just worry about electrical outlets. Children may often unfortunately not realise that they are placing themselves in the way of harm because the whole thing seems very innocent to children and also adults at times. It doesn’t matter what appearances, intent  or direct responsibility there were, when there is an accident that involves a child, the courts do take a drastically different approach. That approach is what is known as the attractive nuisance doctrine. Insurers will in all cases want to avoid having to pay for any accidents that may happen due to an attractive nuisance.

What is an attractive nuisance?

Simply put, attractive nuisances are things that exist on your property that have the potential to be dangerous, and in most cases, it is so for children and also the elderly. It is something that you have intentionally put inside your property and although it may be attractive, it poses certain risks and dangers, opening the room for different types of insurance claims to be filed.

Attractive nuisances will include a wide variety of things. Some of these are very obvious and some, not so much. It is very important to know exactly how much of these nuisances exist in your property so that you can make the correct decision of how much coverage to purchase. Let us take a look at some of the most common types of these nuisances.

1. Railroads:

We all know how fascinated and content children are by the very simple process of looking at toy trains running laps around and around. You may think that this is why railroads pose no real threat. But it is not such a small matter, afterall, real railroads and the safety of children is no small matter. It is for this very reason, the allure of railroad turntables, that eventually did lead to the “turntable doctrine”. This is what preceded the attractive nuisance laws after it was established that homeowners are responsible for trespassing children.

2. Swimming Pools

The very attractive and beautiful pools that many people have in their backyards have the potential to be the ultimate attractive nuisance, in fact, they seem to be the best example of what exactly an attractive nuisance is. We all love swimming pools in the summer, like literally we all do. Sometimes our pets also love them. While it may all be a lot of fun to take a dive in the pool on a hot day of summer, it definitely is not that fun when people and especially children do not understand the concept of boundaries around the pools they are at. One thing that is definitely not funny is the unfortunate deaths and injuries that we see arising from pools and nor is it funny if you have to bear the brunt of the expenses in any accident that may happen to take place on your very own property. If you happen to have a pool then your home insurance company will in all likelihood require that you have your pool gated securely and that it remains locked at all times. If you do not do that, and it does not matter if you don’t do it before buying the policy or afterwards, you will be facing denial of coverage from insurance providers. You will also have to deal with claims that are denied, policies being cancelled and very likely, large liability lawsuits which you are responsible for settling on your own and out of your own pocket.

3. Farm Equipment:

A lot of people and especially people who reside in the countryside, often have farms within the confines of their property. Farms do vary a lot when it comes to size but one that courts believe in is that all farmers should install fencing that is safe. In other words, safe fencing. Also, courts have ruled that it is not necessary to move large farm equipment and they have also ruled that live animals are also not an attractive nuisance.

How Do Attorneys Decide to Represent a Personal Injury Case?

To Represent or Not to Represent

For an attorney, taking on representation of a personal injury client is a commitment on several levels.  First, you must believe the client needs help and you can provide it.  Second, you must believe you will be successful in providing said representation.  Third, you must believe the potential recovery (and resulting fee) is an efficient use of your time.  That is, you will profit once the case is resolved.

The Economics of Personal Injury Law

It would be nice if the practice of law was only concerned with the pursuit of justice and every case is one where we “fight the good fight”.  But there is the way things should be, and the way it actually is.  Like it or not, business drives the legal profession.

At first blush, this may be a depressing thought, but the situation is certainly fair.  In “free” market economies, efficiency is the name of the game.  It makes sense that the lawyer (business) which provides the best service, in the most efficient manner, will thrive.

Because business concerns (profit and loss) are of primary importance, they play into every decision a personal injury lawyer makes.  This is true from the time the attorney tries to determine if a particular case is worth the time.

For example, a personal injury case where the client didn’t go directly to the emergency room, didn’t see a doctor until two weeks after the accident, and had soft tissue injuries will likely only yield a small recovery and fee.  A potential client who was airlifted to the hospital and spent a week in intensive care is obviously a more valuable scenario for the client and the attorney.

But much of the work still takes the same amount of time as far as the attorney is concerned.  So the determination ultimately comes down to the amount of money made vs. the amount of time spent on the file.  In other words, what is the attorney is making for his time – the only commodity he/she has to offer the marketplace?

Making the Determination

I was taught to never take a case unless you are willing to put in the time it would take to bring that case to trial.  I still think this is a good rule of thumb for attorneys trying to build a practice.

I realize that many attorneys take on cases to see if they can settle the matter “pre-suit”.  And especially for an attorney looking for cash flow, this can be an attractive policy.  The idea is to try to work up the case, make a few phone calls and send a few letters to see if the adjuster will put some money on the case.  If not, the client is released to try to find another attorney before the statute of limitations runs.  I think this practice is short sighted though and could bite you in the backside later on.

Even if you are just starting out, you will undoubtedly be getting new clients.  As you practice, old clients sometimes become recurring clients and more importantly, referring clients.  Many older attorneys will tell you past clients are a large source of their referral business.

If you are unable to settle a case, and unwilling to take it into suit, that client will surely not be happy.  A client who is only half-heartedly represented is not a referring client.

In addition, you will have wasted time on a case that yielded you no fees whatsoever.  Further, when the case is finally ready to settle, you forego possibly working on larger cases with more profit potential.

The Answer

So how do you decide which cases to take?  First, decide how much you want to make per hour of your time.  In the personal injury game, we don’t bill hours, so you are probably better off deciding which cases by their estimated case value.  Then you can calculate your expected fees in rough terms, divide that number by the amount of hours you work and you will have a rough estimate as to how “heavy” a personal injury case must be for you to consider representation.

If you are just starting out and need some, albeit rough, estimates as to what a case is worth, you can ask some of your peers.  You can also use the crude method of multiplying the medical expenses by three.  These are not perfect estimations by any means.  However, they will give you a general idea of your potential fee if all goes well.

Once you decide your threshold, make sure to you stick to it.  I remember taking cases not trying to disappoint a friend or acquaintance.   These will undoubtedly cause you to work the hardest for almost no revenue.  Resist the temptation to be a people pleaser and politely pass.

Obviously, these are some broad strokes, but the concept is clear – make sure you are providing value, and don’t forget that business drives the profession.  Keep this in mind and you and your clients will be that much better off.

Thanks for listening.

What Accidents Commonly Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) cause changes in brain function. Though they may occur spontaneously due to strokes or other medical events that take place within the body, a significant percentage of TBIs are caused by external force. It is the latter that we will concern ourselves with here: accidental brain injuries for which another party’s negligence or recklessness may be to blame. Tragically, there are a great many types of accidents that may result in such injuries.

If you have suffered a TBI in an accident, you are no doubt overwhelmed by physical and cognitive symptoms, not to mention loss of income and financial burdens. Once you have been properly diagnosed and are being treated for symptoms that accompany such severe injury, it is imperative that you or a family member contact a personal injury attorney with experience in brain injury accident cases. A talented lawyer with a history of successful outcomes can mean the difference between an unremitting financial struggle and a secure future for you and your loved ones.

Types of Accidents That Commonly Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries

Though our brains are designed to be well-protected by the bones of the skull, a hard blow or collision can result in severe injury to their delicate tissue. Depending upon what part of the brain is impacted, it is possible to suffer a broad range of symptoms, including:

  • Loss of consciousness (briefly, for a prolonged period, or permanently)
  • Sensory loss (e.g. loss of sight, hearing, tactile sensation, smell or taste
  • Motor impairment, partial or complete paralysis
  • Cognitive deficits, such as memory loss or mental acuity
  • Mood disorders, depression, inexplicable rage
  • Inability to speak
  • Seizures

The harsh reality is that accidents like those listed below may, in a matter of seconds, result in death or permanently alter your life.

Traffic Accident Brain Injuries

As the media makes us aware, serious traffic accidents occur on a daily basis and some result in TBIs. Whether you are driving or a passenger, traveling in a car, truck, bus or trolley, riding a motorcycle, motor scooter or bicycle, or simply a pedestrian, a traffic accident can damage the organ you most depend on.

If someone else is responsible for the serious harm that has come to you, you are entitled to receive substantial compensation. If you were hit by a drunk, speeding, or otherwise reckless driver, were the victim of a poorly maintained public vehicle or a poorly maintained road surface — an aggressive traffic accident attorney will protect your rights.

Sports Accident Brain Injuries

In many cases, so-called sports “accidents” are caused by improper supervision (especially of children and teenagers on school or recreational teams) or defects in helmets or other protective gear. In such cases, a savvy sports injury attorney may well be able to win damages from the school district, athletic organization, camp, or manufacturer of defective sports equipment.

Examples of sports in which you may have suffered a brain injury include:

  • Contact sports like football, hockey or boxing
  • Diving
  • Cycling
  • Horseback riding
  • Basketball or baseball

Don’t just assume that sports injuries are nobody’s fault. It is very possible that you may have legal recourse.

Slip and Fall Brain Injuries (Premises Liability)

While some falls are simply the result of clumsiness or misstep (tripping over your own shoelace, for example), many TBIs occur as a result of someone else’s negligence. If you trip on your neighbor’s property, at a store, office, public building or sidewalk as a result of an unmarked:

  • Hole
  • Obstacle
  • Slippery floor
  • Broken step or banister
  • Falling debris
  • Construction materials

a competent slip and fall attorney may be able to win damages for your injury and its concomitant expenses. Whether your TBI occurs when you’re making a deposit at the bank or walking in your local supermarket’s unsanded icy parking lot, you need a knowledgeable premises liability lawyer to see your case through.

Nursing Home Brain Injuries

It is painful to realize that a certain number of elderly patients in nursing homes suffer severe injuries due to negligence or abuse. While most nurses and aides are dedicated to their patients, some allow them to fall and suffer TBIs by:

  • Not supervising them carefully enough
  • Failing to assist them when they need to go to the bathroom or want to walk, leaving them to navigate unsafely on their own
  • Overmedicating them to keep them submissive, which impairs their balance and makes them disoriented, increasing the risk that they will fall
  • Shoving them or slapping them so that they fall and hit their heads

If your loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury due to such awful treatment, you should contact a nursing home negligence/abuse attorney to give your family the best chance of obtaining justice. 

Medical Malpractice Brain Injuries

No one likes to admit the possibility that medical professionals may cause injury or disease, least of all doctors or nurses themselves. Still, the grim reality is that a certain number of patients suffer TBIs due to one of the following types of medical malpractice:

  • Anesthesia error
  • Failure to diagnose a condition that might lead to a stroke
  • Misdiagnosis of a brain infection that delays treatment
  • Medication error (e.g. accidental overdose)
  • Birth injuries that occur due to negligent obstetric care

Even though in all but the rarest cases, medical mistakes are unintentional, the person or entity responsible for your loved one’s injury must be held accountable. You will need a skilled brain injury attorney to fight vigorously for the funds that will be needed now and going forward.

What an Accomplished Brain Injury Attorney Will Do to Help

No matter whether the brain injury suffered was one the patient was able to recover from through surgery and/or extensive rehabilitation, or has resulted in permanent disability or death, your lawyer’s job will be to:

  • Investigate the accident carefully
  • Pore over the police report
  • Exam all medical records
  • Interview witnesses
  • Consult with experts who may be able to give pertinent testimony
  • File all required legal documents promptly

More than that, your personal injury attorney will commit to fighting tooth and nail to win you the damages you deserve. 

Recoverable Damages in Brain Injury Cases

TBI cases result in some of the highest verdicts and settlements because the consequences of brain damage are so often catastrophic. How do you calculate what a patient is owed for blindness, loss of memory, constant confusion, loss of the use of one side of the body, complete paralysis? Depending on the particular circumstances, your attorney will seek to provide you with resources to pay for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost income, present and future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability
  • Physical, psychiatric, and occupational therapy
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Alterations to make your home accessible
  • Long-term nursing and home care

Though it is hard to carry on with your life after a traumatic brain injury, with the help of a highly competent, compassionate attorney, you will have the very best chance of overcoming this tragedy and moving forward in a positive direction.

Ask the DUI Lawyer – FAQs on Traffic Offences

You cannot exercise your right if you do not know it. This is the reason many people face convictions that far outweighs the crime they allegedly committed.

Knowing the law is for your good, therefore, you should not see it as the sole responsibility of the attorneys and the legal stakeholders alone.

In light of this, this article will proffer answers to some DUI-related frequently asked questions.

Traffic laws are more interpreted by the state judiciary than the federal legislative system. As a result, you should be particular about finding out the peculiarities of these laws in your state.

What Is the Meaning of DUI?

DUI is a legal acronym for one or several traffic offenses by a driver. In full, it means driving under the influence of illegally unacceptable substances for people behind the wheel. These substances are usually things capable of intoxicating and affecting the driver’s sense of reasoning.

Such substances include alcohol, tobacco, heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and other psychoactive substances and items.

What Is the Difference Between DWI and DUI?

The interpretation for both DWI and DUI are different, and so are the offenses in some parts. DWI is an acronym for Driving While Intoxicated/Impaired (depending on state definition), while DUI is a shortened form for Driving Under the Influence.

The practical difference between DWI and DUI is determined by the state and not the federal judicial system. This is because some states consider both offenses as similar, while some term them as different criminal counts.

Can You Still be Alleged a DUI Offender after Passing a BAC Test?

You can still be charged for committing a DUI crime even if you pass the Breathalyzer test. This is the situation in many parts of the country as offenders are first noticed because of some reckless driving action.

So, other reasons you may be convicted of this offense include reckless driving, failing a sobriety test, and a few others.

Can You be Charged as a DUI Offender for Using CBD?

Legally, you cannot be charged for using CBD products that do not exceed the 0.3% THC content. However, we strongly recommend that you stay away from using these drugs when you want to drive.

This is because of the inability to truly ascertain the THC content by law enforcement agents when using a Breathalyzer. Also, many cannabidiol brands are not truthful about the exact amount of THC concentration in the product.

As a result, it will be better to avoid the complications using this product can cause in this regard.

Can a DUI Record be Expunged?

A Driving Under Influence conviction falls under the category of charges that cannot be expunged. This is why alleged offenders should seriously consider all the options presented by their lawyers. Also, this stresses the need to take traffic laws seriously.

Should You Hire a Private Lawyer or a Public Defendant for Your DUI Charge?

You are strongly advised to do all within your power to get a capable private lawyer. This is because of the massive workload of public defendants and how the system is often handled.

Many public defendants selfishly convince the alleged offenders to accept a plea bargain. This is even if the client is innocent of the allegation. To protect your interest in every possible way, you should give serious thought to being represented by a private counsel.

What Are the Possible Penalties for DUI Offenders?

DUI or/and DWI offenders can face legal penalties such as fines, suspension of driving license, community service, and jail time.

You should know that factors such as the location of the offense, the offender’s criminal record, and other factors determine the specificity of the punishment meted out.

Usually, first-time offenders are handed a light penalty. On the contrary, the penalty is more severe for felons and drivers that have a similar criminal history.

Can You Have Your Case Dismissed If You are Not Read Your Miranda Right?

You cannot legally maintain that your DUI case should be dismissed if you are not read the conventional Miranda right. However, this means that your responses to interrogatory questions subsequent to the arrest should not be presentable in court.

However, it is important that you state clearly that you want your legal counsel present from the moment you are arrested. This also means that you should not answer questions until your lawyer is available. For more answers to other FAQs on this subject, you can check here.

On a Final Note

We have gone over some important things you should know if you are faced with a traffic charge. Finally, you should respect every traffic rule as obtained in your state. This is so that your chances of being charged with any traffic offense is minimal or non-existent.

Hiring a Lawyer for an Accident Case in Ontario

If you want to get remuneration for injuries sustained due to an accident at the workplace or others’ recklessness, a lawyer is the right person to work with. And not just any attorney would be ideal for this type of situation.

In an accident case, personal injury lawyers are the ideal professionals to get in touch with. They are best equipped to help represent your interest and get the much-deserved compensation for your troubles.

Most people have to wait till there is an accident before they go looking for this type of legal representation, and as such, are not adequately informed about how to seek restitution in a law court.

Can you Represent Yourself in an Accident Case?

Is it worth it to hire a personal injury lawyer? Maybe not! You could save yourself the money and get yourself in front of the judge and jury to seek compensation for your woes.

But think about it. Do you know legal proceedings and how to present your case in a law court? This is important if you want to get a good chance at victory.

Another thing is that you’ll only get the chance to represent yourself if you don’t sustain any serious injury. In this case, you will need someone to help you present your case in court. And not just anyone; they have to be good at what they do, so you need all the help you can get to find the right legal representation.

Getting the Right Representation

There is every likelihood you may not have contact with an injury lawyer, but the right thing to do in this case will be to get in touch with an attorney. So you want to see if they know anyone they can refer you to regarding the situation.

Most people don’t mind working with their attorney, who may not have experience handling related cases. It is possible they could provide adequate representation and help present your case. Still, when it comes to ensuring you get compensation, you want someone with the appropriate experience and training. This is why you will need to hire a personal injury lawyer above anyone else if you have the option of making a choice.

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Again, you don’t just want to get someone with the title into the courtroom as your attorney. They have to be professionally equipped with the training to help you win the case. While many expert lawyers are out there, finding those experienced to represent you in an accident situation may be where the challenge lies. But luckily, there are ways to find just the right service for you.

· Law Firm or Lawyer?

You may have to conclude whether you want to hire a company or work with a professional instead. Getting the right representation is all that matters, and there are no restrictions on who to work with as long as they have experience with legal proceedings and success with accident cases.

If you already have a legal team for your family or business, and there happen to be an accident, there is nothing wrong with getting in touch with them to represent you in your claim suit. However, if you haven’t needed legal representation before the unfortunate incident, there is the chance that you may have to work with an individual.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the cost of hiring a law firm is more than what you will get for working with an individual. So you want to factor all this in when looking for the right representation.

· Experience Levels 

You want to be particular about the experience of whoever you’ll be working with. As a matter of importance, ask about their previous cases and how they could get compensation for their clients.

Also, check through their educational qualifications and request the necessary paper works regarding their profession. If you are working with someone in a lawsuit, you want them to be well versed in the dictates of the law and the matter at hand. So if you have the chance of working with an attorney who has helped someone with a similar predicament like yours, they may be the better choice.

In addition to qualifications and appropriate certifications, you also want to consider the success rate of getting compensation for their clients. If you will be taking the stress to look for one and hire them, they have to be able to get you something that will be worth your troubles (and more). So it pays if you check how they fared with their previous cases.

· Protecting your Rights

This is one of the critical things you want from your injury lawyer. And you should expect the opposition to try and trample on them. Insurance companies hire some of the best legal professionals to represent them in settlement cases, and if you want to defeat them at their game, you need to have someone who understands human rights.

The first thing you want to do is get enough evidence of the accident. A photograph of the incident or eye witness will be ideal for helping push your case. In severe cases, the police may have to check through camera footage around the area to get evidence. But it helps if there is enough to present your case before a judge. You can find more on this website on what to do in the event of an accident.

· Cost of Services

You want to agree on compensation and the cost of services before you hire a personal injury lawyer. This will prevent any confusion later regarding the fee. Most lawyers will charge a percentage of the settlement fee, bill you by the hour, or ask that you commit to a retainer. Whichever one appeals to you should be the best option.

Final Note 

Finding a professional to represent you in an accident claim either in a car crash or at work, you want to work with a personal injury lawyer. They have the training to get you the restitution you need.

What are my Rights After Being Injured by a Dangerous Product

Thousands of consumers are injured every year because of dangerous or defective products. When you find yourself in such a predicament, you’ll be entitled to a product liability claim. The claim for the injuries will compensate for the medical bills, time away from work, rehabilitation, pain, and suffering that you’ve had to go through.

The product manufacturer will be held liable for the injuries. You might be aware of your rights but going up against a big insurance company could prove to be a challenging task. Such corporations have experienced attorneys by their side to protect their interests. In this article, we’re going to highlight the rights you have as a consumer and how to go about the process of hiring an attorney for your case.

Product Defect Claims

There are three main types of product defects: manufacturer’s defects, defects in labeling and warning, and design defects. The legal implications will vary from one product defect claim to another. You can see more at Flagler Personal Injury Group.

Defect in Design: An example is with the braking system in a motorbike. If the cables disintegrate when the rider steps on the brake, the manufacturer will be liable for the injuries that come about as a result of the defect.

Defect in Manufacturer: An example is a car with a steering rack that doesn’t fully rotate when taking corners. Such a defect can cause serious accidents and even death in some cases.

Defect in Warning: An example is with space heaters. There should be sufficient labeling and warning for a unit that is prone to overheating if it is left on for extended periods of time.

Legal Recourse for Defective Products

The law will vary from one jurisdiction to another but the underlying principles are the same. There are remedies provided by the law in the case of a defective product. There are two main theories of product defect cases and they include:

Strict liability: In such a situation, the manufacturer will be the one that is strictly liable for the product defect. The onus will be on the plaintiff to prove liability for the product defect in order to be compensated.

Negligence: Proving negligence is the basis of any personal injury case. The plaintiff will need to prove beyond reasonable doubt of suffering damage because of the defects of the product. A good example is with a motorcycle that was not properly inspected. If the wheels come out and result in injuries, the plaintiff is entitled to file a claim for the damages.

Who Should Be Sued

When you’ve been injured because of a defective product, one of the important things you’ll have to figure out is the parties that should be sued. It could be a complicated endeavor to identify the companies that are liable for the injuries. The majority of state laws will require the same type of defendants in a lawsuit that involves a defective product.

Manufacturer

The manufacturer of the product will be the source of the distribution chain. The size of the manufacturer could vary depending on the product. It could be an individual working from their garage or a Fortune 500 company with factory outlets across the globe. All the parties involved in the manufacturing process should be included in the lawsuit.

Retailer

The retailer might not be involved in the manufacturer of the product but they’ll still be liable for selling something that is defective. It should be noted that the defendant is not conveniently chosen. The lawsuit will require that anyone that is involved in the distribution of the defective product should be a defendant in the lawsuit. If you’re figuring out if the retailer should be included in the lawsuit, there will be a couple of things to keep in mind:

You don’t necessarily have to be a buyer: You don’t have to be the buyer in order to file for a claim. An example is when you take painkillers that were given to you by a friend. You can still file for a claim even if you’re not the one that purchased the painkillers from the retail store.

You can recover for used products: The product can still be defective even if you bought it used. That doesn’t exempt the manufacturer from liability.

Corporation

There are situations where the defendant could be a corporation. The law considers corporations persons that can be held liable in a court of law. You’re still able to sue even if the defendant is a foreign corporation.

The More Defendants, The Better

One of the reasons why you’d want to identify all the defendants is because each defendant will be held jointly and severally liable for the injuries. What this means that even if one defendant fails to pay, another will carry the cross. This is why a personal injury attorney will try as much as possible to identify all the defendants in the supply chain of the product.

Getting an Attorney For Your Defective Product Claim

It can be an extremely complex process to identify all the defendants involved in a defective product claim. That is why it will be a good idea to look for an experienced attorney depending on the nature of your case. To make sure you’re working with an experienced attorney, you’ll want to find how long they’ve been practicing. The more the years, the more the experience. You can also ask for references just to be sure.

Conclusion

It can be intimidating fighting with a big corporation. They have attorneys to safeguard their interests. There is no reason why you’d want to file the claim on your own when you can reach out for help. Most personal injury attorneys will work on a contingency fee basis.

Flagler Personal Injury Group is a law firm that believes in fighting for the rights of motorcycle users. Our attorneys are highly trained and experienced with personal injury law. We’ll help you handle all the legal aspects of filing for a claim so that you’re getting the compensation that you truly deserve.
