Trial lawyer and co-founder of Lawyer Minds, Mike Campbell interviewed about myriad aspects of his profession. He spoke on preparation, the importance of trial lawyers and their benefits to society, and also shared insight to the struggles he overcame when he first began practicing and how those experiences have shaped his career.

As a dedicated lawyer, Campbell is always striving to learn more and find ways to improve. He uses this information to create strategies and implement them for his clients in the courtroom. He also noted the importance of having the fortitude to forge ahead through fear or nerves, even if there are moments of shakiness or stuttering. Sharing a personal anecdote where a judge informed him his voir dire was all wrong, Campbell said that while he felt paralyzed, he realized he had a decision to make: to sit down or to keep asking questions and move forward.

How Often Is Alzheimer’s Disease Misdiagnosed?

Published on Mar 31, 2020 at 12:41 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

Misdiagnoses happen in medical settings more often than people realize. In some cases, the patient can seek a second opinion and get the treatment they need before their condition worsens. When an elderly person is misdiagnosed, however, the consequences can be fatal.

Often times, nursing home residents have to rely on the judgment of the home’s medical professionals and employees. If the proper professionals aren’t there, misdiagnosis is a real possibility—especially if the resident has Alzheimer’s disease.

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Published on Mar 11, 2020 at 5:17 pm in Car Accidents.

Being diagnosed with degenerative disc disease can be scary and worrisome, especially if it’s the first time you are hearing those words. Unfortunately, much like lawyers use confusing latin phrases, doctors can use terms like “degenerative disc disease” and fail to explain what it means because they hear the term on a daily basis. So, what does degenerative disc mean? And if you were involved in a car accident or any other type of personal injury, how does a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease affect your case? Let’s explore this below.

According to Cedars Sinai, degenerative disc disease is “not actually a disease”, but rather “a condition in which a damaged disc causes pain.”

What Does the Term “Crashworthiness” Mean and How Does it Apply to My Case?

Published on Jan 23, 2020 at 7:00 pm in Car Accidents.

Crashworthiness is defined as the degree to which a vehicle will protect its occupants from the effects of an accident. In other words, it means how safe a vehicle is. Although it might seem as though a car’s safety features focus on protecting the passengers from the initial collision on the exterior of the vehicle, they actually protect passengers from the second collisions between them and anything inside the vehicle, like the steering wheel or the dashboard.

Those impacts can be the most dangerous of any accident. So when a vehicle is not as safe as it is supposed to be and causes more injuries for the passengers after an accident, the case falls under product liability.

Can a Herniated Disk Happen After a Car Accident?

Published on Jan 8, 2020 at 6:21 pm in Car Accidents.

At some point after a car accident or a personal injury you may notice that the pain in your neck or back has not gone away. Or, you notice that have you numbness, tingling, or some other sensation in your arms or legs. You can’t quite figure out what the issue is and you tell a doctor. The doctor has you go through some physical therapy, but that doesn’t help either.  Eventually, the doctor orders an MRI and tells you the news: You’ve got a herniated disk. Unfortunately, the doctor doesn’t spend much time talking to you about what this means for you and how it happened. So, you want to know more and you want to know if the herniated disk was caused by a wreck. First, let’s examine what a herniated disk is.

Can Bulging Disks Occur After a Car Accident?

Published on Dec 2, 2019 at 7:17 pm in Car Accidents.

After a car accident or any other type of personal injury you may notice pain in your neck or back. Wisely, you decide to go see a doctor and he tries to resolve your pain conservatively (without surgery) by recommending anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, and home stretching programs. However, your pain doesn’t go away and eventually the doctor orders an MRI. When your results come back, the doctor tells you that you have a “bulging disk” somewhere along your spine.

Unfortunately, doctors can fail to understand that this is the first time you’ve ever heard the term “bulging disk”. Just as with every other profession, a doctor probably hears the term “bulging disk”, just as often as a lawyer hears the term “lawsuit”. For clients and patients though, these terms are a foreign language and can be scary to hear. A doctor may tell you it’s not serious, but you want to know more. Hopefully the below will help you understand what a bulging disk is and what it means for your car accident case.

How Do Nursing Homes Handle Understaffing?

Published on Oct 28, 2019 at 3:47 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

Discussing long-term care options with your loved one can be difficult. When round-the-clock, professional care becomes a necessity, you’ll want to choose the best facility for your loved one to reside in. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes provide the quality of care their residents deserve. In fact, a staggering number of nursing homes in the United States are severely understaffed. As a result, residents are forced to live in unsanitary and depressing conditions.

When a resident is abused or neglected in Missouri, family members can file a personal injury claim on their behalf to seek compensation for losses and hold the negligent facility accountable. If you find yourself in a situation like that, getting in touch with an attorney is your best chance at seeking justice.

In order to ensure your loved one is receiving the care they deserve in their long-term care facility, it’s important to understand why understaffing is so common, what can happen when it’s an issue, and what can be done to ensure that every resident is allowed to thrive physically, emotionally, and socially.

How Fault Is Determined in Car Accidents Caused by Traffic Violations

Traffic violations happen all the time. They can range from something as minimal as parking in front of a fire hydrant, to something as dangerous as driving under the influence. A traffic violation is when a driver violates any law that regulates vehicle operation on streets and highways. While committing a traffic violation is wrong and can cost you a ticket and fine, it’s even worse if it leads to a car accident.
