Types of Pregnancy Injuries Due to Car Accidents

Vehicle collisions can lead to severe injuries for all the occupants involved. However, a pregnant woman involved in a car crash has a greater risk of unique injuries. That’s because pregnant occupants have a different relationship between the steering wheel and seatbelts than non-pregnant occupants. This can lead to uncommon injuries not only for the pregnant woman but also to their growing fetus.
It is always advisable to seek immediate medical attention if you are pregnant and were involved in a car crash as a precautionary measure to ensure your fetus’s health.
Below is a list of injuries unique to expecting mothers.

PLACENTAL ABRUPTION

Placental abruption is a common cause of fetal loss in an automobile crash. It happens when the placenta detaches from the uterine wall, disrupting oxygen supply and nutrients to the fetus. This type of injury can occur even when pregnant women are correctly using a seatbelt. However, the risk of placental abruption increases with women who are in the later stages of their pregnancy.

UTERINE INJURY

Uterine rupture and lacerations are rare during pregnancy. Injury to the uterus in car accidents almost exclusively happens during pregnancy. That’s because a woman’s uterus is much larger at that time. When a uterine rupture occurs, the likelihood of fetal death is nearly 100%. The mother may also face complications, such as internal bleeding.

DIRECT FETAL INJURY

Direct fetal injury (DFI) doesn’t occur often. During the first three months of pregnancy, the pelvis still protects the uterus. However, as the baby grows bigger, the uterus begins to protrude from the abdomen. During this stage of pregnancy, the fetus can suffer a direct injury in a car accident. Usually, the skull is the most common direct fetal injury. It can lead to severe injuries for the fetus, including miscarriage.

MISCARRIAGE

A fetus is protected by the uterus and the amniotic fluid, which acts as a shock absorber. If a pregnant woman hits the steering wheel or another part of the car, the impact can puncture the fluid. When the amniotic fluid is low, it can lead to miscarriage. Also, suppose the expecting mother loses oxygen as a result of the car accident. In that case, it can also lead to a miscarriage.

PREMATURE BIRTH

Premature birth happens when a woman delivers her baby before the fetus is considered “full term”— before 37 weeks. Premature babies can have a myriad of health issues. The stress of a car accident can cause a woman to deliver her child prematurely.

Pregnant women face many unique injuries to themselves and their fetuses when involved in a car accident. Aside from the safety concerns, expecting mothers will face more financial damages than other car crash victims. Not only will the mother need medical attention and monitoring, but so will the fetus.

The time after an automobile collision may be particularly stressful. If you were involved in a car accident while pregnant, you might have the right to financial compensation. However, it is vital to consult with a skilled personal injury attorney at the Law Office of Daniel H. Rose to protect your rights.

A Letter of Protection and How It Helps in a Personal Injury Case

Not everyone involved in an accident may have health insurance. Or, there may be times when a covered person’s insurance denies injury claims arising from an accident.  That means that getting medical attention can be complicated. The injured person may be left with paying medical expenses out-of-pocket. As costs escalate, it increases the chances that a person will be unable to pay. So, what options does a person who was injured by another have for paying medical expenses?

Simply put, a Letter of Protection is a document that helps someone get medical care when they have been injured due to another person’s negligence. A Letter of Protection alleviates the burden that the injured party might otherwise have in paying for medical expenses themselves. Below, we discuss what a letter of protection is and the benefits of using one.

Letter of Protection

A Letter of Protection is a medical lien. When a person is injured, their lawyer will send a Letter of Protection to a doctor or medical provider, which promises to pay for medical bills once a settlement is received. The injured person will get medical treatment without health insurance or cash, asking the doctor to hold their account for collection. Once payment is obtained from the settlement, the lawyer will use it to pay back the doctor.

There many benefits to using a Letter of Protection, but there are also some drawbacks.

Drawbacks

If you are not successful in your case against the at-fault party, you are still responsible for paying your medical bills.

Benefits

One of the benefits of having a Letter of Protection is that the attorney handling the claim can arrange medical appointments. Having such a liaison will ensure that you get immediate attention for your injury. Also, in a personal injury suit, it’s necessary to document the extent of injuries by gathering medical records. It is a tedious process that may take several weeks to obtain all the relevant documentation. However, with a Letter of Protection, it is easier for the attorney to get medical records from one doctor.  Also, fewer medical bills make it easier to pay for medical costs at once.

A Letter of Protection can also protect your credit. Since a Letter of Protection is a contract, our experienced attorneys can input specific language that prevents unpaid bills from being sent to a collection agency for a while. However, a Letter of Protection doesn’t absolve the injured party from paying their medical bills. Even if the case is ultimately lost, the injured party must still pay their medical bills.

Another benefit is that when a doctor provides medical care with a Letter of Protection, they are more willing to give testimony regarding the injured person’s medical injuries. In a personal injury case, the injured party is responsible for proving the extent of their injuries because that’s how the monetary amount is determined. Having a medical expert describe the harm will allow a deeper understanding of the extent of the injury.

If your medical insurance has denied paying for medical expenses because they believe the other party should pay, or if you don’t have insurance, a Letter of Protection can be a good option. Contact our attorneys at 415-946-8900 or at Dan Rose Law to schedule a free consultation.

Safety Driving Tips for Expectant Mothers

Whether it’s your first pregnancy or third, expectant mothers have to avoid things like hot yoga, roller coaster rides, and even certain cleaning products. It’s a long list indeed, and the mother-to-be must make temporary adjustments to ensure her safety and that of her baby.

According to a national study conducted in the U.S., women represented almost half of the workforce in 2019. Plus, even if work isn’t the reason you drive, it’s something that can’t be easily avoided. However, suppose a pregnant woman is involved in a car accident and risks injury to herself and her unborn baby. Luckily, there are many adjustments an expecting mother can make to ensure a safe ride.

Seatbelts

Experts agree that seatbelts are the most effective means to save lives and lessen injuries in car accidents. And everyone, including women who are pregnant, should wear seatbelts.

If you are pregnant, ensuring that your seatbelt is placed correctly can avoid serious injury in the event of a car crash or other accident. An expecting mother should remove a coat or any other bulky clothing that prevents a seat belt from fitting snugly. The lap portion of the belt should rest across the hips or below. You never want the lap portion to go across your lower abdomen because it can cause serious injury if there is an accident or a sudden stop.

Even if uncomfortable, the shoulder strap should always be worn. It should rest in the middle of your chest. It shouldn’t be placed behind you or under your arm.

Proper Vehicle Adjustments

An expecting mother should ensure that she is adequately distanced from the steering wheel. This is especially true if the car has an air bag feature. If an airbag deploys, proper seat positioning ensures that the force doesn’t directly hit the abdomen. Any abdominal trauma sustained in a car accident can lead to severe injury or death of the fetus. For example, placental abruption could alter the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. Or the force can cause a uterine rupture.

Ideally, the driver’s seat should be about 25 cm, or a belly distance away from the steering wheel. Also, the steering wheel should point away from your belly. It should be directed towards the chest.

As your belly grows, your seat adjustments will also change. So, it is essential to position all the mirrors.

 Contact a Skilled Attorney

Pregnant women who have been injured in a car accident may have more significant expenses than other car accident victims. That is true because an expectant mother will require more medical attention, especially to monitor the fetus. Also, a mother-to-be might also have increased pain and suffering from worrying about whether her unborn child is healthy. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney at the Dan Rose Law Firm can help you assess your damages and make the right decisions for you and your family.

Filing a Lawsuit Against a Deceased Defendant

If you suffered injuries or losses because of someone else’s negligence, you may have the legal right to bring a claim to receive both economic and non-economic damages. However, in some cases, the liable party dies as a result of the accident or during the process of filing a legal claim. Learn more about what your options are regarding filing a lawsuit against a deceased defendant.

The Estate of the Deceased Defendant

If you experienced any type of personal injury that resulted in injuries or losses due to someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, you have a right to become whole and receive both justice and compensation. However, if the negligent party dies, you cannot sue them directly. However, you do have the right as a victim to file a claim against their estate, which is the remaining assets that they leave behind when they die.

Motion for Scire Fascias Substitution

A motion for scire fascias substitution is a legal action that specifically requests that the court substitute a party as a representative for the deceased party’s estate. If the negligent party dies either at the scene of the car accident (or any other type of accident) or prior to filing the lawsuit, the party that will be held responsible and liable to compensate the victim will be the deceased’s estate. In some cases, there may already be a probate case pending. If this is the case, then the victim has the legal option to either intervene in that probate case or file a different and separate civil case along with the motion for scire fascias substitution.

Finding the Executor of the Deceased Defendant’s Estate

One of the other challenges may be finding the executor (representative) of the deceased defendant’s estate. If the deceased person has their estate going through the probate process, this may be easier; however, there are instances where there is no case in the probate court which makes it more challenging to find the executor of the estate.

Legal Challenges Against a Deceased Defendant

There are several complex legal challenges that may occur when a victim files a lawsuit against a deceased defendant. Because there is an inability to interview the defendant regarding the accident, a great deal of information or evidence may be lost due to. Additionally, finding the executor of the deceased defendant’s estate can also prove challenging. Finally, a victim will have to navigate not only a personal injury case but, in some cases, the probate process to winning compensation for their injuries and losses resulting from someone else’s negligence.

Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

Our experienced attorneys at The Law Office of Daniel H. Rose can navigate both the personal injury portion of your claim as well as the probate portions of this potential lawsuit. It is important to consider visiting with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible due to the complexity and challenge of cases where the defendant has died. If you suffered injuries or losses related to another person’s negligence who has since died, consider visiting with our personal injury attorneys and legal team at 415-946-8900 or online today.

Key Differences Between Personal Injury Lawsuits and Workers’ Compensation Claims

Suppose you are injured at your place of employment during work hours. You may be wondering what options you have to recover medical expenses and lost wages. Understanding the differences between filing a personal injury lawsuit or a claim under workers’ compensation is an essential first step.

Only certain classes of workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Unpaid volunteers, independent contractors, and domestic employees in private homes cannot receive workers’ compensation. Therefore, determining whether you qualify can assist you in deciding which claim to pursue.

If workers’ compensation covers your injury, the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) provides administrative and judicial services for benefits. An injured party files a claim with their employer’s insurance carrier. For personal injury lawsuits, a case only starts when the injured party files a petition with a California court.

Below are some key differences between both claims.

  1. Workers’ compensation provides immediate relief

Workers’ compensation provides immediate relief to a worker who suffers a work-related accident. That’s because workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide the injured employee with medical treatment needed to recover from a work-related injury or illness. It may also include lost wages during the recovery period, rehabilitation, and temporary disability pension while you are unable to work. With very few exceptions, California requires employers to maintain workers’ compensation insurance, even if they only have one employee.

In a personal injury lawsuit, the court tries to quantify the worker’s injuries with a monetary award because it can’t mend broken bones. Depending on the extent of the worker’s injuries, damages can include pain and suffering and punitive damages. Workers’ compensation benefits do not have pain and suffering damages.

  1. No-Fault Needed for Workers’ Compensation

In a workers’ compensation claim, the injured party does not have to show that the employer was “at fault” to prevail on their claim. Workers’ compensation would cover specific injuries, even if the employer or supervisor were not a fault. The injury only needs to be work-related.

Not having to show the employer’s fault is crucial when compared to a personal injury lawsuit. In almost all personal injury lawsuits, the injured party must show that the employer was negligent in their actions, leading to the injury. If the employer can show that they were not negligent, they can immediately dismiss the case.

  1. Workers’ Compensation Does Not Cover All Damages

In a worker’s compensation claim, an injured employee is only entitled to recover reasonable medical care expenses, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, job displacement benefits if the injured worker cannot return to work, and death benefits.

For personal injury claims, an injured party has the potential to recover the same benefits offered under workers’ compensation, but also pain and suffering damages.

Contact a Skilled Attorney

Once an injured party files a workers’ compensation claim, they cannot file a personal injury lawsuit. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney at the Dan Rose Law Firm can help you make the right decision for you.

Can I Sue Someone for Exposing Me to COVID-19?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hundreds of thousands of people in the United States have now lost their lives a result of the COVID-19. There are certain circumstances under which a person may have the legal right to file a claim against another person or entity for exposure to COVID-19. Learn more about your legal rights below.

Basis of Personal Injury Claims

A claim regarding exposure to COVID-19 would fall under personal injury law. In order to have a strong personal injury claim, you would need to prove the following elements:

  • The person or entity had a legal duty and responsibility to you to protect you from COVID-19 exposure.
  • The person breached their legal duty regarding protecting you from COVID-19 exposure
  • You suffered actual exposure to COVID-19.
  • The exposure to COVID-19 resulted in either actually contracting the COVID-19 virus. and/or suffering any other types of economic or non-economic damages.

Legal Duty

In most cases, one human being does not have a legal duty to another human being regarding exposure to viruses. However, there have been cases regarding HIV, where someone knowingly and purposefully infected another person, resulting in a lawsuit. Given the fact that the laws in several areas now require people to wear masks and remain socially distant, an argument can be made that the failure to do so breaches a person’s legal duty and the requirement to ensure the safety of others with respect to COVID-19. Additionally, if an employer failed to provide proper safety equipment, you may have a legal right to bring a claim against your employer for your exposure and development of COVID-19.

Causation

While an argument can be made that a person has a legal duty to wear a mask and social distance themselves from others (or quarantine if they have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus), the victim must prove that they received the exposure from this exact person. The evidence to do that may prove legally complex, as it is challenging to directly determine which person gave another person the COVID-19 virus conclusively. You may have the ability to prove causation if an employer failed to send home people who are sick, failed to provide protective equipment, or large gatherings were not appropriately canceled.

Damages

Exposure to COVID-19 is simply not enough to file a claim in a court of law. A victim must have suffered actual physical, psychological, or financial harm because of COVID-19 exposure.

Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Today

To date, nearly 800 cases involving COVID-19 exposure have occurred and many of these claims are directly related to exposure issues and negligence of different parties. If you contracted COVID-19 as the result of someone else’s negligence, consider visiting with an experienced personal injury attorney today at The Law Office of Daniel H. Rose at 415-946-8900 or online who can work with you to help you understand your legal rights.

When Is a Personal Injury Considered Catastrophic?

In the best circumstances, a car accident victim will only have minor injuries that resolve quickly and require minimal medical intervention. If you are a victim of a minor fender-bender, you likely will not need weeks, months, or even years of medical treatment. However, in many car accidents, trauma victims suffer severe injuries requiring emergency medical care, hospitalization, surgeries, extended hospital stays, continued medical treatments and therapies, and ongoing medical prescriptions. In some cases, victims suffer permanent or life-altering injuries. Victims receive compensation comparable to their severity level. Learn when a personal injury is considered catastrophic and how you can receive compensation for your injuries and losses.

Catastrophic Injuries

In most cases, catastrophic injuries are considered those that require extensive medical attention and treatment following a car accident. A victim has the legal right to pursue compensation for any injuries that they receive as a result of someone else’s negligence, however the more severe the accident, the greater the chance the injuries will also be severe. Victims are allowed to receive additional compensation for their injuries, damages, and losses if their injuries are considered catastrophic. Some examples of catastrophic injuries resulting from an accident include the following:

  • Permanent or long-term disabilities
  • Any permanent or long-term bodily impairment or loss of functionality
  • Any major body system suffering permanent damage
  • Incapacitation in any way
  • Severe pain and suffering
  • Diagnosis of a terminal medical condition or death of the victim
  • Severe traumatic brain injuries, or serious injuries to the head, neck or spinal cord
  • The victim remains unable to return to any kind of employment
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Vision loss or hearing loss
  • Multiple fractures or broken bones
  • Severe damage to the central nervous system or severe nerve damage
  • Neurological conditions or disorders
  • Severe burns that result in pain and suffering, disfigurement or scarring

Catastrophic Injuries and Insurance Companies

If you were a victim of a serious accident and suffered catastrophic injuries, you may have astronomical bills associated with your injury that may include ambulance bills, doctors’ visits, surgeries, hospitalizations, prescription medications, continued physical therapy treatments, diagnostic testing, and a need for mental therapy as well. Many victims of severe accidents suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, as they endured a traumatic event that resulted in catastrophic injuries. A victim has a legal right to receive compensation for their lost wages as a result of remaining unable to return to work due to their injuries. Additionally, victims of serious accidents that result in catastrophic injuries typically suffer severe pain and suffering which can increase the total amount of compensation received in settlement packages from insurance companies. Visiting with an experienced attorney can help ensure that the calculations for pain and suffering are fair and just for a victim with catastrophic injuries.

Medical Errors That Cause Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a condition that occurs to the damage of an infant’s brain either before, during or immediately following birth. Studies show that birth asphyxia and hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) are the most prevalent risk factors for cerebral palsy, with over 63% of infants being diagnosed with one of these conditions that ultimately resulted in cerebral palsy.

The brain damage that results in cerebral palsy is typically permanent, causing a child to have challenges throughout their life with muscle control, posture, muscle tone, reflexes, coordination, posture, and balance.

Those with cerebral palsy also have challenges with fine and gross motor skills and oftentimes will need assistance throughout their lives. The severity of cerebral palsy is different for every child, however, in many cases, cerebral palsy is a direct result of medical negligence on the part of the doctor, nurse, or another medical professional during the birthing process.

Medical Errors Related to Cerebral Palsy

In many cases, the infant does not have enough oxygen to the brain, which results in permanent neurological damage. Unfortunately, there are thousands of cases of cerebral palsy that occur every year in the United States. There are ways that medical professionals can prevent this type of neurological damage that oftentimes results in cerebral palsy by taking appropriate steps that are established by protocols within the medical community. Negligence of a doctor or another medical professional can include the following:

  • Failing to discover, diagnose correctly, or appropriately treat an infection in the mother or infant
  • Failing to attach a fetal heart rate monitor to the mother, or failing to carefully observe the monitor for significant changes which would indicate a medical emergency
  • Failing to perform a cesarean section when it would be considered medically necessary
  • Failing to discover, diagnose correctly, or appropriately handle a prolapsed umbilical cord
  • Failing to use medical tools in the birthing process appropriately, such as vacuum extractors or forceps

Foundation for a Medical Malpractice Case

If you gave birth to a child that was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you may want to seriously consider whether or not medical negligence was involved in the development of your child’s condition. In many cases, medical errors either before, during, or immediately after the birth of a child can lead to brain injury resulting in cerebral palsy.

If your baby was born prematurely, the medical staff had an additional responsibility to ensure that appropriate measures were taken to ensure their health and to prevent brain damage. You may be able to file a claim against the attending physician, nurse, anesthesiologist, or other medical professionals. Additionally, if you had your baby in a hospital, you may have the legal right to hold the hospital directly responsible for the brain injuries suffered by your child.

Contact an Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney

Conducting an independent investigation can be a complex legal undertaking and visiting with an experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you understand how you may have the legal right to pursue justice on behalf of your child.

If your child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, contact the experienced attorneys at The Law Office of Daniel H. Rose at (415) 946-8900 or online today.

Medical Errors are the Third Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.

Medical errors are now considered the third leading cause of death in the U.S. When a medical error occurs, typically it is the result of some form of medical malpractice by a doctor, nurse, or another health professional acting in a negligent way that led to the death of the patient. The following are some of the most common types of medical errors by medical professionals that result in death.

Misdiagnosis

The misdiagnosis of patients is one of the most common reasons for death due to medical error. When a patient receives a misdiagnosis, this inherently leads to incorrect medications being prescribed, incorrect therapies or surgeries, or the absence of the correct medical treatments. Delays in providing the correct diagnoses for patients directly result in the loss of valuable time to treat what may be a life-threatening condition. In order to prove that misdiagnosis caused a patient’s death, the victim’s family in a wrongful death suit must prove that another doctor or medical professional acting in a reasonable manner according to established medical standards, would have been able to correctly diagnose the patient, thus preventing their death.

Birth Injuries and Deaths

Unfortunately, many mothers and newborns die every year due to medical errors in the birth and delivery process. Even if death does not occur, birth injuries to children can be devastating and include brain damage, broken bones, nerve damage, Erb’s Palsy, Cerebral Palsy, Klumpke’s Palsy and seizure disorders. While babies are born every day, if a doctor or medical professional fails to act in a prudent manner under established medical standards during a delivery, death to the mother or child may result.

Prescription Medication Errors

Medication-related errors affect more than one million people in the U.S. each year. These errors can be the result of the doctor incorrectly prescribing a medication, or simply prescribing the wrong medication altogether. They can also occur when the hospital staff incorrectly administers the medication prescribed by a doctor or attending physician. As previously mentioned, in cases of misdiagnosis, prescription medication errors are common, as doctors prescribe medication for a condition that the patient does not have. If an incorrect medication is prescribed, or an incorrect dosage is given of a correct medication, a patient can suffer irreparable harm, including severe injuries or death.

Surgical Errors

Surgery is an inherently risky procedure, which is why medical professionals should take additional care and caution during surgery to ensure that medical errors do not occur. Unfortunately, medical errors in surgeries are common in the U.S., and they account for one-third of all medical malpractice claims. In these cases, the doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and hospitals themselves can all be held responsible and liable for a patient’s death.

Contact an Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney

If your loved one died due to a medical error, you may have a case for wrongful death. While you may not want to consider filing a lawsuit, you are likely facing astronomical medical bills, funeral costs, and other unexpected expenses. Contact The Law Office of Daniel H. Rose.

What Does Pain and Suffering Mean in a Personal Injury Case?

You have just been injured in an accident in California. In addition to bodily injuries or damage to your property, the entire ordeal has taken a toll on you emotionally and mentally. Afterall, you were not doing anything wrong when you were hurt by the negligence of someone else —yet you have been paying the price for it.

Many individuals who suffer injuries and property damage from an accident assume that they will be able to recover compensation for those damages in addition to payment for their pain and suffering. However, if you have recently been involved in an accident in the State of California, you should know that pain and suffering damages are not awarded as commonly as you may think.

What is pain and suffering?

Damages for pain and suffering in California personal injury law are meant to compensate an injured party for non-economic damages caused by an accident such as anxiety, shock, emotional distress, grief, scarring, insomnia, inconvenience, humiliation, loss of enjoyment of life, inability to take part in pleasurable activities, or loss of a limb or organ (or its use).

When might I be eligible to recover pain and suffering damages?

To be eligible for pain and suffering damages, you must be able to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that you suffered the alleged harm or are certain to suffer in the future as a result of the defendant’s negligence.

How much money can I receive in compensation for pain and suffering?

Under California law, pain and suffering damages are not generally subject to a statutory cap. However, there are a few exceptions to this, including claims for medical malpractice. If you are injured by the malpractice of a medical professional, you may claim damages for pain and suffering, but they will be subject to a statutory cap of $250,000. Keep in mind that this is the maximum amount you can receive. That does not mean you will necessarily be entitled to $250,000 in pain and suffering damages in any medical malpractice claim.

In some instances where you played a certain adverse role in the circumstances of the accident in question, you may be ineligible to recover pain and suffering damages. For example, if you are injured while driving a vehicle without insurance, you will not be eligible for pain and suffering damages unless the other driver was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If you are injured while you are driving drunk and you are convicted of DUI, even if your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, you will be ineligible for pain and suffering damages.

Lastly, if you are injured by someone else’s negligence while you are committing or fleeing from a felony and you are convicted, you will not be eligible for pain and suffering damages.

Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

Winning a personal injury case is no easy feat but trying to recover damages for your pain and suffering can be even more legally complex. If you have experienced emotional distress of any kind, pain, and/or suffering as a result of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to non-economic damages.

Do not face the insurance companies alone. For the advice and representation from an advocate you can trust, contact the Law Office of Dan H. Rose today. We offer complimentary consultations and take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that you only owe legal fees if you win your case in a favorable judgment or settlement.
