Toxic Torts

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Toxic tort cases are complex litigation cases that seek recourse for a person injured by hazardous materials and chemicals. In the United States, toxic materials are found in the air, water, food, work place, and even at home. Harmful substances include lead paint, pharmaceutical drugs, toxic mold, pesticides, chemicals and asbestos.

Many people come in contact with toxic materials by occupational exposure or pharmaceutical drugs. Because of the abundance of toxic materials in our country, there is a serious risk of exposure that can lead to  injury, disease, and death. Victims of a personal injury caused by exposure to a toxic substance may seek recourse for serious injuries.

Additionally, these cases often result in a class action law suit, because toxic exposure usually affects more than one person.

If you or a loved one has had an injury or illness due to a toxic substance, we may be able to help. If you have any questions or need additional information, call us toll free and without obligation at 1-888-442-7947 or send us an e-mail at ggreen@gGreen.com.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), often referred to as a “closed head injury,” is typically, but not always, preceded by an external blow to the head. Injury to the brain caused by lack of oxygen or blood supply to the brain is called an “anoxic injury.” While the injury may not have seemed detrimental and no loss of consciousness occurred, any type of trauma to the brain can lead to impairment in brain functions with permanent damage.

You may have suffered a traumatic brain injury if any of the following conditions resulted from trauma to the head:

  • Loss of consciousness for any period of time
  • Loss of memory either before or after the incident
  • Any modification in one’s state of mind at the time of the incident e.g. feeling confused, disoriented or dazed
  • Any sort of neurological deficit e.g. numbness or tingling sensations, loss of balance, dizziness, paralysis or loss of muscle control of any type, inability to speak
  • Any sensory loss such as hearing, vision, sense of smell, or taste.

While not all of these symptoms may occur immediately following the incident, it may precipitate a series of events that can be adverse. The possibility of significant damage should be a concern if any of these symptoms follow a head injury. While the listed symptoms may be evident, other inconspicuous symptoms such as irritability, inability to concentrate, and fatigue may signify that trauma has indeed occurred.

A traumatic brain injury will not always show up on an MRI or CAT scan. Dangerous or severe brain injuries can exist while imaging studies appear negative or normal. For example, shear injuries occur at the cellular level where the damage is microscopic in nature, which would not be revealed in conventional imaging techniques. Although it may not be obvious at the time, if you have suffered another serious injury as the result of a specific event, the probability of a brain injury greatly increases. If you suspect that you have been the victim of a traumatic brain injury, yet conventional testing reveals no damage, you should seek a reputable neuro-psychologist who can test your brain function capacity.

The role of an attorney representing an individual who has suffered a traumatic brain injury is vital. Often it will be your lawyer who makes the referral to a neuro-psychologist and Life Care Planner. Our attorneys become your advocate in the medical and insurance community. They help ensure that you get the necessary specialized treatment–especially in cases where misdiagnosis or mistreatment is suspected. We have the experience and compassion necessary to act successfully on your behalf in your best interests.

Law Offices of Gary Green is a corporate sponsor of the Brain Injury Association (BIA) to whom a donation is given for every victim we represent. If you suspect you have suffered a traumatic brain injury call us toll free and without obligation at 1-888-442-7947 or send us an e-mail at ggreen@gGreen.com if you have questions or need additional information.

Personal Injury

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Personal injury damages can be both to the body and to the mind. When victims suffer from severe injury there is often reduced income and possibly a lost job. If the injured persons need medical care, it can become very expensive financially and mentally taxing, as the compromised lifestyle of the victim and their loved ones may suffer from stress, trauma and even depression. All of these damages can be reduced to a dollar sum in the eyes of the law, with compensation paid by those responsible. Monetary compensation is intended to put the victim back to where they should have been if the incident had not occurred and is an effort to return the injured to their normal lifestyle.

To insure all the rights of those injured are protected and the optimum compensation is obtained, the personal injury victim should consult with a law firm that is licensed to practice in the state where the incident occurred and have lawyers who have experience in the specific injury. Law Offices of Gary Green are located in Little Rock Arkansas, Memphis Tennessee and Springfield Missouri. Our lawyers are familiar with the individual laws of each state, and practice in the following types of injury:

The injured should consult a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Not having a personal injury attorney can lead to problems with proving a case, obtaining fair compensation and possible issues arising from statutes of limitations.

Passenger Van Wrecks

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Passenger vans were designed in the 1970s when very little testing was done by manufacturers to assess the vans’ propensity to rollover or handling characteristics. These vans are exempt from many federal motor-vehicle safety standards because they are neither considered school busses nor passenger cars. Despite the fact they were originally designed to carry cargo, they often carry people. 15-passenger vans not only have a risk of rollover, but also have weak roofs that crush while rolling over. A passenger van wreck is not an accident when the faults are well known and nothing has been done to change them.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is an agency responsible for investigating motor vehicle defects and establishing and enforcing safety performance standards. The NHTSA publishes a list of warnings for consumers summarized by the following:

  • Children (pre-school and school-aged) should not be transported in 15-passenger vans
  • The number of occupants in a passenger van greatly increases the risk of rollover. ( 5 + in 15-passenger vans)
  • A passenger van containing only a driver has a rollover rate 5 times less than that of a van with a full passenger load
  • All occupants of passenger vans should wear seatbelts.

Despite these public advisories and warnings, the NHTSA had (only until recently) exempted 15-passenger vans from all federal motor vehicle safety standards.

Furthermore, in 2003 the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommended the NHTSA strive to improve safety standards in the areas of occupant protection and restraints for passenger vans. The NHTSA now warns people of the dangers of 15-passenger vans, but no new safety standards have been established.

If you have sustained injuries as the occupant of a passenger van, we may be able to help. Call Law Offices of Gary Green toll free and without obligation at 1-888-442-7947 or send us an e-mail at ggreen@gGreen.com.

Class Actions

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

A class action lawsuit is nothing more than the consolidation of several related lawsuits into one. Not all lawsuits are eligible to become class actions, in fact, most cannot. However, if there are numerous plaintiffs (or possibly defendants), all with common legal issues to resolve, then a judge may allow them to join as a class. Class action plaintiffs can include consumers hurt by defective products and small businesses bringing suit against large corporations for unfair business practices, persons harmed by pharmaceuticals, persons who have lost money in the securities markets, and many other types of common losses suffered by many people.

The ideal of the class action allows a remedy en masse to those who otherwise might not be able to afford access to the courts. Currently, cases can be under either state or federal jurisdiction and claims can be large or small.

For a class action lawsuit, a named plaintiff stands in for a group of similarly situated plaintiffs injured by the same defendant or group of defendants. The need for resources and ability to keep track of the many parties and issues involved make these very complex cases to handle. Many class action suits fail because the issues presented are not clear enough.
