Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
There are many benefits to retaining a personal injury attorney if you have been hurt in an accident. A lawyer takes on the responsibility of dealing with the insurance companies, so that you will not have to continue to receive constant phone calls from adjusters. In addition, an attorney can conduct their own investigation into the case to determine who is at fault and what the proper compensation should be. Finally, a personal injury attorney knows the law and how the legal system works. A lawyer can make sure that your case is being handled properly with the insurance companies as well as in the court system.
Having an experienced personal injury attorney can also ensure that you are getting the full compensation that you are owed for your injuries. This can include costs for medical bills, lost wages, disability, scarring and disfigurement, impaired earning ability, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and any other damages that are reasonably related to the injuries that you sustained in the accident. A lawyer can safeguard you from insurance companies offering you a settlement that is worth far less that what you fully deserve for your claims.

01/21/2015 - Florida Hospital patient claims she was exposed to HIVFlorida Hospital is under fire over a woman's claim that medical staff exposed her to HIV. The female patient has to wait another month before the hospital can run its next round of tests, then she’ll have to wait three months for more testing to find out if she contracted HIV. The 75-year-old woman, who did not want to be identified, went to the hospital with bronchitis. “Nothing, nothing compared to what I could have,” the woman said in Spanish. The patient said she went to Florida Hospital East campus in November and ended up in a shared room with a patient who is HIV-positive. During her stay, the woman said hospital workers abruptly changed her room, then admitted a nurse used the same IV line for her that had been connected to the patient with HIV, therefore exposing her to the virus. “I cannot imagine how an HIV-positive patient is sharing a room with a non-HIV-positive patient,” said the patient’s attorney, Lou Pendas. Her family hired Pendas as their attorney when they couldn’t get help from the hospital. “While they admit that it occurred, they’re denying that they’re responsible,” Pendas said. Pendas said the hospital claims the nurse was a contracted employee from a third party. He said even if it’s true, he doesn’t care. “The hospital has to become responsible for it,” he said. The woman said she’s scared to be close to her family and she constantly thinks about what will happen if she does have the virus. She wants the hospital to take responsibility. “The anguish and pain, not only for me, but for my family,” she said in Spanish. The family said the hospital did initially offer her treatment, but didn’t follow up. Hospital officials released a statement that read, “We have not been served with a lawsuit regarding this matter. However, we have strenuous policies to safeguard the health of our patients. The patient’s first incubation period of 3 months, ends in February and she’ll be tested again for the virus. Three months after that, more tests will be conducted. Health officials say HIV can take several months to show up in someone’s blood work."
