  • Can a Jones Act personal injury attorney sue company doctors for medical malpractice?

    Had a surgery on my joint. Could not recover with PT for 6 month. Cuff repair failed followed by biceps tear during PT. MRI proved first surgery was wrong. Went through revision surgery to fix old and new tear with the same doctor

    Brian’s Answer

    Medical malpractice cases are extremely challenging but under the Jones Act, you can sue your employer if you got hurt on the job and subsequently you were the victim of poor medical care.

    You should talk to a Jones Act lawyer immediately.

    Brian’s Answer

    You should call a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer immediately to determine your options. Many of the best will offer you a free Case Analysis.

    Be careful, though: Some lawyers advertise for trucking cases but don't have any real track records handling large, complex cases. So make sure you call an accomplished attorney with a proven track record of success.

  • Looking for a lawyer who handles offshore injuries and you can contact when needed

    I fell down the stars of a work boat.I it had no non skid and I ended up getting 3 hernias.Took me a year to fully heel and is not the same person anymore

    Brian’s Answer

    I second what Jeff Meyer said. You need an experienced offshore injury lawyer. Your case could be a significant case, but you need a lawyer with experience in these types of cases b/c the law is completely different than land-based law. In fact, your case probably falls under the Jones Act.

  • My husband was in a one car accident. Swerving to miss an object in the road the car flipped. He was thrown out and is now in

    ICU with 7 broken ribs, a collapsed lung and 3 broken bones in his neck. He also has bleeding on the brain. Can I sue my car insurance to help with medical bills?

    Brian’s Answer

    You need to see if you can identify the source of the object in the road. If you can, it could be a case worth pursuing. I think you should get a lawyer to investigate for you immediately.
