Understanding Lawyers - Don't Think the Worst

I got into a car accident when my daughter was 2 years old. My daughter was not injured in the crash, but I was. The accident was caused by a distracted driver talking on her cell phone. The driver insisted that I was attending to my daughter and I took my eyes off the road. I unfortunately had many medical bills to pay and I had very little time to fight with insurance companies over settlement payments. I was concerned about the cost of an attorney, but I met with a lawyer anyway to help with the accident claim. The lawyer relieved my stress and dealt with the insurance company and the other driver. I want you to know that lawyers can be helpful, kind, and caring. Most people think the worst of these professionals, but I want you to know that lawyers should not be feared or avoided.

3 Questions Answered About Trampoline Injuries

When it comes to being injured on a trampoline, there are many things to consider. If the injury is significant enough, you may be faced with huge medical bills and lost time from work. It's ideal to be prepared if this situation happens to you by knowing some questions to ask in advance about a serious trampoline injury.

Question #1: Who's responsible for the injury?

The first question that may come up during this time involves the person that caused the injury. There are several possibilities and these are listed below:

1. The property owner that had the trampoline on the property.

2. The manufacturer that made the trampoline and the accident was due to a defect.

3. The person using this item wasn't old enough to do so or had a physical handicap that led to the injury.

When it comes to finding the right person to sue, all of the details of the case must be thoroughly examined.

Question #2: What would make the Property Owner responsible for the accident?

There are certain conditions that could cause the owner of the property to be faced with the lawsuit. Some of these are listed below:

1. Improper maintenance – If the trampoline were not maintained as well as it should have been and had holes or tears in it that contributed to the accident, this would be the responsibility of the owner.

2. Improper supervision – Not being mindful of the ages of children that play on the trampoline and additionally supervising these children could be the reason for a legal action to be filed.

3. Not enclosing the trampoline – It's the responsibility of the owner to put a fence or gate around this piece of equipment to prevent children from simply entering without warning.

Question #3: When is the accident blamed on the injured individual?

There are times when the trampoline accident you were involved in may simply be your own fault.  For instance, if you entered onto the property without having the permission of the owner, this could be considered trespassing and may make you liable for you own injuries.

Additionally, if you're accompanying another person to a party, but you weren't specifically invited and were hurt, this could be your own fault.

The challenges of dealing with any type of injury are numerous and may make it difficult to get on with your life with ease. Be sure to rely on the expertise of a personal injury attorney, such as those at Otorowski Johnston Morrow & Golden P.L.L.C., if you feel this is something that warrants taking legal action against another individual.
