Consideration was given for the editing and publication of this post.

Medical malpractice is a serious issue and one that occurs more often than many people think. This is a problem that can affect adults and youngsters and it can devastate families in more serious cases. This is why you need to ensure you take appropriate action in the event you or a family member falls victim to medical malpractice. Finding an expert in medical malpractice law means that you can get your case dealt with speedily, efficiently, and by someone with specialist knowledge and expertise.

If you feel that you or someone you know has fallen victim to this type of malpractice, it is important to seek legal advice as quickly as possible. There is often a lot of work to be done in order to prove your case and get you the justice you deserve, so the earlier you take action the better your chances of success. Depending on the extend of damage or injury stemming from this malpractice, you could be entitled to a serious amount of compensation. An experience legal expert will be able to boost the chances of the case going in your favor and getting the compensation you are entitled to.

How to Find the Right Lawyer

So, how do you find the right lawyer to deal with your medical malpractice case? Well, there are various key factors you need to consider in order to make the right choice. It is important that you make an informed decision with regards to which legal professional to choose to deal with your case. Your choice of legal expert can make a big difference to the success of your case as well as the amount of compensation you get for the damage and injuries sustained as a result of the medical malpractice.

It is important to find a lawyer that has plenty of experience when it comes to dealing with medical malpractice cases, as this can boost the chances of a successful outcome for you. Take some time to do your research and speak to the law firm to learn more about the level of experience the professional has when it comes to dealing with cases involving medical malpractice. You can then also learn more about the outcome of these cases, as this will give you a better idea of how likely it is that you will win your case.

You should also check online reviews to find out more about what other people think of the service provided by the lawyer. Many people who have used the same lawyer will leave reviews online and this provides you with a great opportunity to get some background on the legal professional, find out more about their communication and service levels, and find out how reliable and efficient they are. This then means you can make a more informed choice with regards to the lawyer you choose to deal with your medical malpractice case.

One more factor to consider is the cost of getting the legal help you need for your medical malpractice case. Different lawyer will charge different fees and rates to deal with your case, so this is something you need to check on. In addition, the way in which they charge can also vary with some charging on an hourly basis and others charging a set fee or charging on a contingency fee basis.

By taking all of these factors into account, you can find an experienced, reputable and affordable legal expert to deal with your medical malpractice case.

What’s Crime Really Like in England and Wales in 2018?

Consideration was given for the editing and publication of this post.

Crime trends in the UK have changed a lot over the years, not least because society altered its habits and technology has become more advanced. Cyber crime was once an alien concept, for example, yet these days it’s one of the biggest challenges faced by the authorities all over the world.

So what has happened to crime in England and Wales? The Office of National Statistics has rounded up some interesting figures for the year of 2018, which will shed some light on the current state of affairs.

Crime in England and Wales

The most notable piece of information from the data is on homicide. Not only has it been on the rise for four consecutive years, it is currently at the highest rate it’s been for a decade, making it stand out against the other crimes which naturally wave up and down over the years.

Murder, manslaughter and infanticide (the killing of infants) is all up there as a rising figure, according to recent data from the Home Office. This figure excludes deaths from terror attacks or major disasters including Hillsborough. Instead, it’s focused on smaller scale homicide.

It’s worth noting that higher rates of homicide actually reflect a higher number of people being caught by the authorities, and this figure is not necessarily connected to the number of homicides actually being committed.

Violent crime has risen

Offences which are based around violence, such as robbery, knife crime and assault, have also been on the rise, contributing to an overall 9% rise in all police recorded crime in England and Wales.

Figures revealed that violent crime is increasing, with a 12% rise in crimes which involved a sharp weapon. Greater Manchester Police has been excluded from these figures, as there was an issue with recorded data and comparability problems, but the figures represent other forces in England and Wales.

Some crimes are falling

While there are some figures on the rise, the released stats do show that some crimes are on the decrease. Computer misuse is down by as much as 30%, which includes various offences including unauthorised acts with intent to commit a further crime, unauthorised acts which create risk of serious damage, and unauthorised acts with intent to impair the operation of the computer.

Bicycle theft is another recorded crime which has fallen in England and Wales in 2018, though the BBC reported that these figures were “pretty high” last year, suggesting it has just evened out.

Been involved in a crime?

If you or someone close to you has been a victim of crime, there are a number of steps you can take. Of course, in an emergency you are advised to call 999, or call the police on 101 in a non emergency.

However, in some cases you might be accused of a crime, in which case you need a criminal defence solicitor. Get in touch with Carter Moore Solicitors and see what help is available.

Can You Sue Workers’ Compensation for Pain and Suffering?

Consideration was given for the editing and publication of this post.

An on-the-job injury can result in more than the loss of your wages — it can also result in pain and suffering. But workers’ compensation in Atlanta does not include damages for pain and suffering. Find out whether or not you can get paid for your troubles and how you can get help.

Does Workers’ Compensation in Atlanta Include Pain and Suffering?

Workers’ compensation laws vary by state. However, there are some similarities among all of the states in the US. No matter where you live in the US, you can’t sue workers’ compensation for pain and suffering.

Unfortunately, Georgia is no different than the other states. If you file a workers’ compensation claim in Atlanta, you are only eligible for two things. First, you are eligible for your lost wages from missed worked. Secondly, you are eligible for money for your medical expenses.

By filing your case, you give up any right to sue your employer for pain and suffering. Although you might have emotional trauma and significant pain, your hands are tied.

What Can You Do?

It IS true that you can’t file for workers’ compensation in Atlanta and still get paid for your pain and suffering. However, all isn’t lost. The legal system has many loopholes and other laws that can protect you. Here are a few ways you might be able to fight back for the money you deserve.

1.   File an Emotional Distress Claim

In some states, you can file an emotional distress claim. This claim is different than your workers’ compensation claim and is a separate case. However, Georgia does not allow you to file both types of claims. Emotional distress claims are more relevant to personal injury cases.

2. Sue Your Employee for Unpaid Workers’ Compensation

If your employer fails to pay you the money you earned from your workers’ compensation case, you can sue them. Although you might be upset about needing to take legal action, you shouldn’t be.

When you need to sue your employer for the money, you get an opportunity to sue for pain and suffering. This loophole makes it possible for you to get more than your wages and medical expenses.

3. Opt Out of Workers’ Compensation

Currently, only Texas and Oklahoma allow employees to opt out of workers’ compensation. The laws in Georgia require employees to participate in workers’ compensation programs.

4. Sue for an Injury from Someone Other than a Co-Worker or Employer

Even if an injury occurs in the workplace, the injury could be caused by someone other than an employer or co-worker. If this happens to you, then you can sue the individual for pain and suffering.

It is possible for you to still have a workers’ compensation claim and a pain and suffering case against another party. However, it’s a complicated case that requires expertise.

4. Work with a Lawyer

There aren’t many ways to get workers’ compensation in Atlanta. It’s a complex issue that can be difficult to understand. When you handle it on your own, you could experience some challenges.

If you want to find out more about getting pain and suffering for your work-related injury, you should speak to a lawyer. There might be a way for you to get money for your pain and suffering, but you need to speak to an expert to learn about your options.
