Truck Law… Did you know?

Wayne Grant – GA Personal Injury and Board Certified Medical Malpractice Attorney

Truck accidents: Did you know that federal regulations govern carrier’s responsibilities in hiring truck drivers? A trucking company that hires a driver that they should have recognized as incompetent at the time of application for employment can be held liable on a theory of ’negligent hiring’. Whether or not a trucking company was negligent in hiring or retaining a careless driver should be investigated in any serious case.

I am preparing this week for a mediation session for a case that we are handling in Seattle. Mediation is a way of attempting to resolve a case without going to court. In mediation, the parties and their lawyers all appear before a neutral mediator, usually an attorney and try to reach agreement.

It’s been crazy busy, both in the office and at home. Things have calmed down. In the office today, I am working on a tragic case involving malpractice following a routine surgery to repair a broken arm bone in a 4 year old. The arm was wrapped way too tightly after surgery, causing a lack of blood flow that resulted in the death of muscle and nerves. His arm could not be saved and had to be amputated.



Can I Afford a Lawyer?

I’ve often been asked the question “can I afford a lawyer?” In a case involving serious issues, such as a medical malpractice case or a case involving permanent life-long injury, people are often intimidated by the prospect of hiring a lawyer. Knowing that these cases obviously can take years, which entails hundreds, if not thousands of hours. Paying a lawyer on an hourly basis to take on such a case is prohibative for most people. The answer to the question “can I afford a lawyer?” is YES!

At my law office, we take these cases on a contingent fee basis. We screen and evaluate carefully, and we don’t accept all of the cases that we are approached with. If the case has merit, and if the case justifies pursuit, then we will handle it on a contingent fee basis; that is, the attorney fee is figured as a percentage of the recovery, and is paid at the time of the recovery. If there is no recovery, there is no attorney fee. In addition, we do not charge for an initial consultation. If we decide that your case has merit and justifies pursuit, we will partner with you, and take on the risks of handling your case. We will put in our time, our effort and our resources in an effort to try to successfully conclude your case; and bring you not only closure, but adequate compensation for future injury.

The Law Offices of Wayne Grant is joining with federal, state and local highway safety, law enforcement and motorcycle organizations in proclaiming May as “Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month”. By increasing safe riding and cooperation between all road users and motorcyclists, we can reduce the number of fatalities and injuries on our nation’s highways.

As the weather improves, more and more motorcycle riders are hitting the roads throughout the country. The goal of this campaign is to remind motorists and other road users to look out for and “share the road” with motorcycle riders. Motorcycle riders are reminded to follow the rules of the road, wear safety helmets and other protective gear that will increase their visibility, and never ride impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Let me tell you a little story. I represented a career federal air marshal, who became aware of practices and procedures by the government that he believed posed a threat of danger to the flying public. He agreed to specifically speak out and be interviewed on a national news broadcast, because he thought that shedding some light on these practices and procedures might result in some change. And, it did. Read the rest »

Every year I take on one or two cases without charging any attorney fee. That’s right no attorney fee at all! Why do I do that? Let me tell you the story of 4-year-old Brianna. Brianna came to my office with her parents and she was absolutely gorgeous. I noticed that she had scarring on her forehead. I found out that Brianna had suffered seizures and was sent to the hospital in order to have a 24-hour EEG test. In essence, what they do is they take a headband and place it on the forehead, which has electrodes underneath it, and they monitor the brainwaves for 24-hour period. Read the rest »
