What Happens During a Consultation at a Personal Injury Firm?

Published on Mar 8, 2018 at 1:00 pm in Personal Injury.

If you’re thinking about contacting a personal injury lawyer for an accident you were injured in, you likely have some questions. One of the most common questions potential clients have at our law firm is the question regarding the initial case consultation. Many potential clients wonder about the costs for a consultation, what will happen during the consultation itself, and what determines whether or not a case is accepted.

At the Law Office of Mike Campbell, we believe in being honest and upfront with our clients at all times during the process of filing an injury claim. Here is some information you may find useful if you choose to contact our firm for an initial case evaluation:

Bar Fights and Your Rights

Published on Dec 14, 2017 at 4:30 pm in Personal Injury.

We all go into bars and clubs expecting to have a good time.  We expect that the bar staff and bouncers are trained to keep us safe and to watch out for any signs of trouble.  Unfortunately, many staff members and even bouncers are not trained to properly handle bar fights that happen.  Even worse, some bouncers actually end up hurting members of the general public when they try to break up fights or make things worse when restraining people they think are fighting.  Sometimes these bouncers believe they have a free pass in their job and are able to use any force necessary to restrain people.

Know this: If you are assaulted by another patron in a bar, if a staff member assaults you, or if you are assaulted by a bouncer at a bar, you have rights.

What to Do After Being Assaulted in a Missouri Parking Lot

Published on Oct 6, 2017 at 1:46 pm in Personal Injury.

When you go to a bar, restaurant, grocery store, or any other establishment you expect that you will be safe coming and going from your vehicle.  However, even with security cameras, violent crimes occur in areas where there is inadequate or no security and opportunity for criminals to attack.  Many injuries occur during muggings, assaults, robberies, and other violent acts on parking lots.  These injuries may include, but are not limited to, broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, eye injuries, injuries on the neck, face, and other exposed areas.  

Unfortunately, the lasting affects of these assaults may lead to PTSD or other mental trauma that requires counseling.  As a result of these injuries, medical bills and anxiety pile up while the victim goes on and tries to live his/her life. Oftentimes the assailant flees and is never caught.  Or, even if the criminal is caught, he/she doesn’t have the financial means to cover the victim’s medical bills. The question then becomes whether the parking lot owner should have done more to protect people on the premises.

Who is Liable After a Construction Accident in Missouri?

Published on Jul 12, 2017 at 1:01 pm in Personal Injury.

Construction sites are dangerous work environments full of hazards and potential for disaster.  Simple errors in judgment, defective equipment, and falls from high areas are common construction site accidents that can have fatal consequences.  Explosion injuries, electrocutions, and injuries from falling debris are more examples of the hazards present at many Missouri construction sites.

Missouri construction site workers should be aware of safety precautions they need to take to stay safe.  However, it is the job of the construction site manager to maintain the site and meet all safety expectations.  Unfortunately, this does not always happen and workers are then exposed to dangers that can lead to debilitating and even fatal injury.

How to Protect a Loved One in a Nursing Home

Published on May 10, 2017 at 12:39 pm in Personal Injury.

If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it’s completely natural to feel somewhat helpless over their care at times. How can you be 100% sure they’ll remain safe? How can you trust healthcare professionals to watch over your loved one as necessary? It isn’t easy to place trust in nursing care facilities, but by keeping a close eye on your loved one and the facility, you can potentially protect them from getting hurt, harmed, or abused.

Here are 3 ways you can protect a loved one in a nursing home:

Visit Often and Diversify Your Visits

One of the best ways to ensure your loved one is being taken care of properly is to visit them often. Diversify your visits so staff members are not expecting you. This lets you see how they really care for residents. During your visits, always keep your eyes, ears, and nose open for red flags (see below). Pay attention to how staff members split up shifts and how meals are served. Notice how often the rooms are cleaned and how quickly your loved one’s requests are fulfilled.

5 Common Forms of Medical Malpractice

Published on Oct 11, 2016 at 11:00 am in Personal Injury.

Medical malpractice is a form of negligence that can occur at hospitals or any medical institution where professionals are expected to provide medical care that prioritizes the health and safety of its patients. All doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals have a duty to protect their patients and deliver the best care possible. When these expectations aren’t met and a mistake that results in injury or suffering is made, we call this malpractice.

Many hospitals and doctor’s offices are understaffed, which can unfortunately lead to oversights and poor medical care.   Even though many doctors and nurses do a wonderful job and do their best to provide great care, there are occasions where medical malpractice happens. As a result, we always need to keep an eye out for any signs of malpractice should it ever occur. When we’re aware of the facts, we learn how to take action to protect our loved ones.
