Insurance Should Step In When There Is Damage  or  Loss of your Home

What Should My Insurance Cover?

Damage to: detached garages, decks, fencing, swimming pools and pool cages

The contents of your home

Loss of the use of your home if you are unable to live there

Payments to third parties for liability or medical expenses

Tactics to Avoid Paying You

By law, insurance companies are required to investigate and settle insurance claims in a timely manner. Delayed payments from insurance companies often leads to additional expenses that the homeowner must cover during an already financially emotionally stressful time. The Statute of Limitations regarding property damage claims resulting from a hurricane requires that the insured provide notice of the claim to the insurance company within three years from the date the hurricane made landfall or caused the damage.

How Will The Insurance Company Attempt To Negate My Claim?

One of the primary methods employed by insurance companies to avoid providing full payment is by devaluing your home and the contents within.

AAA Hurricane Insurance   claim attorneys will help you get the   compensation for property damage you need and are entitled to.

Hacve you needed additional surgeries  due to problems with your Zimmer  hip implant?

Have you been  poisoned by metallic particles (metallosis) from the Zimmer  replacement hip.

Zimmer Hip Replacement Lawyer Wins Big

Plaintiff awarded more than $2 million in Zimmer Kinectiv hip replacement case decided at trial. He is represented by Boca hip replacement lawyer Joe Osborne.

In what is believed to be the first case involving a Zimmer Kinectiv hip implant system that went to trial, the judge found the defendant responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries, awarding him more than $2 million. After a two-week trial in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the judge found that the hip implant was a defective product and it caused a number of injuries to the plaintiff, Michael Brian McDonald, PhD.

Joseph Osborne, Jr., of Osborne & Associates in Boca Raton, Fla., represents Dr. McDonald, along with other plaintiffs around the country suing hip implant manufacturers due to injuries caused by the devices. “We are very happy for Dr. McDonald and satisfied that our efforts lead to compensation for all the serious medical problems, pain and suffering he needlessly had to endure and will continue to endure,” Osborne says.

Osborne tried the case with Randi McGinn and Allegra Carpenter of McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love, P.A., of Albuquerque, N.M. There are a number of cases filed against Zimmer because alleged defective implants have caused injuries to patients.

In a 27-page decision filed on March 31, New Mexico Judge Nan G. Nash found that,

McDonald was implanted with Zimmer’s M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis with Kinectiv Technology in June 2010. Due to problems with the hip implant another surgery took place in October 2011 to replace it, then a third surgery was needed a month later for another replacement.

McDonald was poisoned by metallic particles (metallosis) from the replacement hip. Tissue in the hip area was so injured it couldn’t be surgically removed and it poses an ongoing threat of infection for McDonald, who his expected to continue to take antibiotics for the rest of his life.

The Zimmer hip replacement system limited McDonald’s functions, caused him pain, infections, multiple surgeries and although he’s currently is doing well, another hip replacement surgery may be needed at some point in the future.

A hip implant should not cause metallosis. A small amount of non-toxic corrosion or metal debris may occur with a hip implant, but one that causes enough corrosion or metal debris to cause toxic metal poisoning, as in Dr. McDonald’s case, creates an unreasonable risk of injury.

Zimmer didn’t fully or adequately test the hip implant components implanted in Dr. McDonald and because of the unreasonable risk of metallosis the hip replacement was found to be defective product and it created an unreasonable risk of harm to McDonald because it allowed the liberation of enough metal debris to injure his hip joint.

The total damages award, which doesn’t include punitive damages, totals $2,027,424.91. It includes,

$1 million for past and future pain and suffering,

$480,000 for lost enjoyment of life, and

$462,034 for past and expected future medical expenses.

“Dr. McDonald is just one of thousands of people who have suffered through defective hip implants made by various manufacturers. We have a lot of work to do for all our other clients and look forward to telling their stories and fighting for just compensation for what they’ve had to go through,” Osborne says.

If you were denied your workers compensation benefits you can appeal this decision with the help of a workers compensation lawyer.

Tampa Workers Compensation Appeal Process

It is usually best to have an experienced Tampa workers compensation lawyer help you with the process. There will be  a mediation conference within 40 days your filing .  All parties are notified of the date including your enpoyer and your employers insurance  company. This conference must be held within 130 days of the filing of the petition.  You may be asked to submit additional evidence or undergo an independent medical exam. This exam is not always a help  to  you. THis exam will be to see if you should have benefits and could benefit your employer and not you. This is another reason that you need a qualified and experienced workers compensation lawyer on your side.

The Pretrial Hearing

A pretrial hearing will be  scheduled prior to the Final Hearing.  Mediation is encouraged. If you and your employer, or your employers  insurance company, cannot reach a settlement the final hearing will  be held within 90 days.  You will need a lawyer to help you  present evidence and expert testimony.

If you  appeal the judge’s decision, you  must file an appeal with the First District Court of Appeals. You will need a workers compensation appeals lawyer to keep you out of trouble and help you win your claim

Florida Workers Compensation Lawyers On New Ruling

This ruling will give injured workers more rights by hiring an experienced workers compenation lawyer. More workers will be able to get help by appealing claim denials with expereinced legal counsel.

New Workers Compensation Ruling Help  Lawyers Help You

In a major victory for injured workers and stinging defeat for businesses, the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a law limiting attorney’s fees in workers’ compensation cases.

The 5-2 ruling is a setback for business groups who say legal fees drive up the cost of workers’ compensation insurance and threaten Florida’s economy and they must seek help from a reliably pro-business Legislature.

The long-awaited decision puts pressure on lawmakers to call a special session in an election year to referee a high-stakes battle between Republican-aligned businesses and Democrat-leaning law firms, two deep-pocketed rivals that are among the biggest contributors to legislators’ political campaigns.

The case before the high court involves a Miami man, Marvin Castellanos, who suffered head, neck and shoulder injuries while working for Next Door Company, a maker of doors and door frames in Miami.

The company waged an aggressive defense, but Castellanos won and received benefits of $822.70.

His lawyer, who worked on the case for 107 hours, sought a fee of $36,817.50.

He received a fee of $164.54, the equivalent of $1.53 per hour under a fee system the Legislature approved in 2009.

Under that law, attorneys who successfully represent injured workers are paid 20 percent of the first $5,000 in benefits obtained and 15 percent of the next $5,000 in benefits.

Writing for the majority, Justice Barbara Pariente said the law violates workers’ due process rights under the state and U.S. Constitution because it prevents challenges to the “reasonableness” of legal fees in workers-compensation cases.

Without the likelihood of an adequate attorney’s fee award, there is little disincentive for a carrier to deny benefits or to raise multiple defenses, as was done here.

Justice Barbara Pariente

“Without the likelihood of an adequate attorney’s fee award, there is little disincentive for a carrier to deny benefits or to raise multiple defenses, as was done here,” Pariente wrote. “Virtually since its inception, the right of a claimant to obtain a reasonable prevailing party attorney’s fee has been central to the workers’ compensation law.”

By replacing the former “reasonable” standard with a sliding scale of legal fees, Pariente said, “the Legislature has thus eliminated any consideration of reasonableness.”

The ruling reflected the court’s ideological split.

Pariente was appointed to the state’s high court by Lawton Chiles, Florida’s last Democratic governor, who died in 1998. She was supported by Chief Justice Jorge Labarga and justices Fred Lewis, James Perry and Peggy Quince.

The dissenters were the court’s two conservative members, Ricky Polston and Charles Canady. Both were appointed by former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, who also appointed Perry and Labarga.

Canady said the law involves a “policy determination” by the Legislature that there should be a relationship between the amount of benefits obtained in workers’ compensation cases and the amount of attorney’s fees awarded. The law has a formula that links benefits and attorney’s fees.

“The definition assumed by the majority categorically precludes the legislative policy requiring a reasonable relationship between the amount of a fee award and the amount of the recovery obtained by the efforts of the attorney,” Canady wrote. “Certainly, this legislative policy may be subject to criticism. But there is no basis in our precedents or federal law for declaring it unconstitutional.”

Workers’ compensation rates in Florida are regulated by the Office of Insurance Regulation, run by Kevin McCarty, who has resigned effective May 2 but who has offered to stay on with no permanent successor in place. Gov. Rick Scott said he wants to appoint McCarty’s successor on Friday.

McCarty said that until the Legislature acts, the state will base attorney’s fees on the “reasonable” standard defined in a 2008 case, Murray vs. Mariner Health.

“Limiting attorney’s fees has been an important factor in reducing workers’ compensation rates,” McCarty said. “A legislative remedy will be required to prevent significant increases in rates, and we look forward to working with all parties affected to bring about a sensible solution.”

Rep. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, said the ruling is not a crisis.

“The sky is not falling,” he said.

Simmons said legislators must find a compromise between outrageous attorney’s fees and the “absurd” $1.53 an hour in Thursday’s decision.

“It can be fixed,” Simmons said.

The effect on rates businesses pay for workers’ comp insurance will be clearer in about a month when the National Council on Compensation Insurance, a federal clearinghouse, is expected to submit a proposed rate filing with McCarty’s office.

McCarty said that after NCCI makes its rate filing, OIR will hold a hearing and work with the stakeholders to “help develop a legislative solution.”

The impact on Florida’s workers compensation system costs is expected to be significant,” said Chris Bailey, a spokesman for NCCI.

Trial lawyers praised the decision.

Debra Henley, executive director of the Florida Justice Association, said she hoped companies “will change their claims handling practices and start promptly paying meritorious claims from injured workers so they can get the care they need, get back to work and support their families.”

The Florida Chamber of Commerce chose its words carefully in responding to the ruling.

“The potential impact of the high court’s ruling could threaten Florida’s improving business climate,” Chamber CEO Mark Wilson said in a statement.

Business groups won a partial victory Thursday when the court declined to rule in another workers’ compensation case brought by a former Hialeah Hospital nurse, Daniel Stahl.

Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau reporters Mary Ellen Klas and Jeremy Wallace contributed to this report and information from The News Service of Florida was used.

New Baby Powder Lawsuit | Ovarian Cancer From Talcum Powder

Written by Attorney Referral Service.

Talcum Powder – Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit Division Opens

Due to the huge number of calls from women who have used Johnson's Baby Powder or Shower To Shower and now have a diagnosis of ovarian cancer a special department for  Ovarian Cancer- Talcum Powder Lawsuits has been opened. 

A New Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuit Goes to Trial in St. Louis and we know that there will be more calls from women nationwide as the news of new lawsuits hits the news.

The Ovarian Cancer- Talcum Powder Lawsuit

Two months after a jury in St. Louis awarded $72 million, a second trial is underway on behalf of a woman who developed ovarian cancer after using Johnson’s Baby Powder for 40 years.

A jury in St. Louis will soon decide whether to award compensation to a woman who developed ovarian cancer after using Johnson’s Baby Powder for over 40 years.

The lawsuit is Ristesund v. Johnson & Johnson Case No. 1422-CC09012-01 in Missouri Circuit Court.

She Used Baby Powder All Her Life

The plaintiff is Gloria Ristesund, a 62 year-old woman who used baby powder genitally for most of her life. In 2011, she was diagnosed with endometrioid ovarian cancer and had a hysterectomy.

Lawyers say her repeated use of baby powder and pre-existing endometriosis increased her risk of ovarian cancer by 214%. They say Johnson & Johnson knew about the risk but failed to warn consumers.

Slogans Enticed Her

Instead, the company marketed talcum powder to adult women with slogans like “Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away.” Ristesund says she never would have used baby powder if she had known about the risk.

In opening arguments, lawyers told the jury: “This case is about profit over human life — specifically, women’s lives. … [J&J] put a corporate philosophy of profit over the safety of their customers.”

Marketing Directed To Hispanic Women

Lawyers presented several internal memos as evidence, including one from 1992 in which the company acknowledges the risk of cancer. The same memo recommends increasing marketing efforts toward black and Hispanic women.

In another memo from 1994, an expert warned that anybody who denies the link between talc and cancer is “denying the obvious in the face of all evidence to the contrary.”

This is the third trial against Johnson & Johnson over talcum powder. In February 2016, another jury in St. Louis awarded $72 million to the family of Jacqueline Fox, a black woman from Alabama who died of ovarian cancer after using baby powder for more than 35 years.

1200 Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

Approximately 1,200 ovarian cancer lawsuits are now pending against Johnson & Johnson nationwide. The size of the litigation has grown rapidly since November 2013, when a jury in South Dakota found the company negligent for failing to warn woman about the risk of cancer.

Evidence linking talc and cancer has been growing for decades. A study in 1971 found particles of talc in ovarian tissue from women with cancer, proving it can travel through the reproductive system.

Talc is an extremely soft mineral with a structure similar to asbestos, a known carcinogen. Before the 1970s, talcum powder was often contaminated with asbestos. Baby powder is now asbestos-free, but studies continue to demonstrate a 20-30% increased risk of ovarian cancer in women who use it routinely for genital hygiene.

If you believe your diagnosis of ovarian cancer is due to your use of Talcum powder call our Talcum Powder lawsuit division today.

 

Georgia Talcum Powder- Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Helpline

Written by Attorney Referral Service. Posted in Atlanta Baby Powder lawyer, Attorney Referral, Class Action Lawsuits, Legal News, Resources

Millions of women use talcum powder everyday for routine hygiene, on sanitary napkins or to dry off. Johnson and Johnson targeted Afro- Ameican women in their ads and now  many  of these women are diagnosd with ovarian cancer in Atlanta,  Sandy Springs, East Point, Redan , Riverdale , Snellville , Conyers, Covington, McDonough, Hampton, Lawrenceville, Johns Creek, Roswell, Woodstock, Marietta, Smyrna , Mableton , Douglasville , Buford , Canton, , Albany, Athens ,Augusta Brunswick ,Columbus ,Macon, Statesboro ,Savanah, and  Warner Robbin: Georgia women  who have used talcum powder on their genitals may have put  themselves at an increased risk of developing Ovarian Cancer. You may have a diagnosis of ovarian cancer from using Talcum Powder products.

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Alert

The Cancer Prevention Research Medical Journal published a report last year which tells us that  2,000 women who used talcum powder on the genital area  had a 20-30% higher risk of ovarian cancer.

A South Dakota jury found there was sufficient evidence to link Johnson Shower-to-Shower body powder to ovarian cancer.

If you or a loved one used Talcum Powder and you or they have been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer contact our ovarian cancer lawsuit helpline  today to speak with an experienced Talcum powder  attorney to determine if you may qualify to join the Talcum Powder- Baby Powder lawsuits.

Johnson & Johnson Aggressively Marketed Baby Powder to Black Women

Black women have long been encouraged to use  talc powder to maintain a standard of hygiene. A study found that black women are four times more likely to use Talcum Powder  products than white women.

“For many recently emancipated African Americans, a clean and odor-free body signified personal progress and enterprise, and the hope for racial assimilation…”

Baby Powder is Big Business for Johnson & Johnson

Black Women Were Targeted Aggressively

Shower To Shower ads in the late 80s promised “just a sprinkle a day keeps odor away.”

Jacqueline Fox was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer

“I was raised up on it,” she later said in a deposition. “They was to help you stay fresh and clean.?…?We ladies have to take care of ourselves.”

Her son notably said, “It has to be safe. It’s put on babies. It’s been around forever. Why haven’t we heard about any ill effects?”

Fox passed away from the cancer in 2015. In February of this year, a St. Louis court ruled that Johnson & Johnson must pay $72 million to Fox’s family as the corporation was liable for gross negligence for failing to warn consumers of the cancer-causing products.

Women are currently suing Johnson & Johnson for ovarian cancer diagnosis from their talc-based products.
