slip and fall accidents

Who is responsible for an injury resulting from a slip and fall accident?  Many thousands of people are injured each year - some very seriously - when they slip or trip and fall on dangerous floors, a flight of stairs, or a rough patch of ground.  Sometimes the property owner is responsible and sometimes they are not. 

Slip and fall accidents most commonly occur in grocery stores, restaurants, parking lots and even apartment complexes. 

We tackle slip and fall cases by examining all the aspects of the incident.

Consider that, nationwide, in 2007 there were 6.2 million police-reported motor vehicle crashes. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 41,000 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes. That's an average of 112 lives lost every day in 2007, someone died in a motor vehicle crash every 13 minutes.

According to statistics compiled by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), 1096 people in Missouri and 468 people in Kansas were killed in car accidents in 2007, and thousands more suffered serious injuries.

breast cancer misdiagnosis/Delay in diagnosis

Medical malpractice means that a doctor, whether a family physician, internist, ob-gyn, or even an oncologist, fails to properly diagnose and treat illness or disease, such as breast cancer. If you feel a possible lump or tumor during your self-exam, make an appointment to see your ob-gyn or primary care doctor immediately and you should probably have a mammogram or breast biopsy done.

When a medical doctor fails to properly diagnose you, or causes a delay in proper diagnosis by not sending you for test, misreading or ignoring testing results, that doctor, clinic or hospital may be liable to you for malpractice injury or premature death due to breast cancer, especially if a contained cancer spreads to lymph node or body tissues and organs.
