Doing anything in a parking lot—driving, walking, steering a cart—requires your full attention. Even though all the cars and people move slowly through parking lots, an accident can happen very quickly and cause a lot of damage. Tens of thousands of crashes happen in parking lots each year, and cause hundreds of deaths, according to the National Safety Council. Parking lots are full of movement and plenty of people forget how dangerous they can be if they’re not vigilant.

Published on Jun 18, 2020 at 7:02 pm in Premises Liability.

As summer approaches in Columbia, so does concert and festival season. Sure, concerts happen year-round, but many places hold a summer concert series or music festivals because outdoor concerts add another level of magic to a musical performance. Even though shows and other festivals are meant to be fun activities, whether outdoors or indoors, they can become serious when fans or attendees get injured.

You shouldn’t have to deal with your injury alone, especially when it was the fault of the venue, so hiring a personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Mike Campbell will ensure that you have the representation you need to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions or inaction. Let’s look at the different scenarios that could have led to your injury at a concert so you know what kind of claim to file.

Hiring a lawyer keeps your from suing the wrong entities, and helps you figure out what case to file according to your situation.

Missouri Car Seat Laws

Published on Jun 18, 2020 at 6:33 pm in Car Accidents.

When you’re traveling with your little one in the car you want them to be as safe as possible, so you strap them into a car seat in the back seat. You might have a front-facing car seat for your one-year-old, but if you’re in the state of Missouri, that could soon be against the law.

While front-facing car seats allow you to more easily see your child in the rear-view mirror while driving, it might not be the safest mode of transportation for them, depending on your child’s size and age. Staying up-to-date on the state’s car seat laws is the best way to ensure your child is safe.

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.
