Mutually Repugnant Policies: A Prime Example of Why You Need to Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer After a Car Accident

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Aug 16, 2014 11:15:00 PM

We have said it before: insurance companies too often care more about the bottom line than they do about injured negligence victims.  Whether it is a cunning adjuster or a tricky policy provision, these companies do everything that they can to avoid paying out under the policies that they issue.  To see this truth in action, we need only look at what happens in cases involving two or more auto insurance policies with mutually repugnant excess provisions.

Manufacturer Recalls Youth Bicycle

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Aug 9, 2014 11:10:56 PM

Last week, bicycle manufacturer Dynacraft recalled its Avigo “Turn N’ Burn” model youth bicycles due to a dangerous product defect.  Sold at Toys “R” Us, the recalled bicycle poses a risk of injury due to a front wheel that can detach from the bike frame while in use.  The recalled bicycle is a 20 inch model, meaning that those at risk of injury are young children.  A full description of the recalled bicycle is available on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.

Unfortunately, personal injuries related to mass-produced bicycles are more common than you may think.  While there is a danger of defective manufacture or design with any bike, the relatively inexpensive models available at large retailers are often cheaply designed and manufactured.  When businesses cut corners, though, it is innocent personal injury victims who suffer.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go All the Way to Trial?

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Aug 3, 2014 11:18:17 PM

I’ll see you in court.  It’s a phrase we have all heard, typically uttered in a movie or a television show by a vehement attorney or an angry client.  But when a personal injury victim sustains an injury, is her claim really likely to proceed all the way to trial?  Not according to the most recent Ohio court statistics.

When Are Suppliers Liable for Defective Products?

We recently discussed the heightened risk of appliance fires during the summer months due to increased use of air conditioning units.  Hardly a week goes by where we do not read about an unfortunate victim of an appliance-related fire.  As we explained in our previous entry, when a defective air conditioning unit or any other defective home appliance causes a fire and you or a loved one suffers property damage, personal injury, or death, you have the right to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the defective product.
