Accident Investigations – Hiring the Right Expert at the Right Time

TASA ID: 16816

Investigating any accident is typically a complex endeavor in which there are numerous intrinsic processes and interrelated elements that have usually led to the accident.  Therefore, it is important that the expert investigating the accident has the training and experience to deal with that specific type of accident relating to your case.  Often, I see law firms reaching out for experts who have acronyms after their name (assumed to ensure credibility) but they do not possess the necessary background, experience or training related to the specific accident being investigated. Not all accidents are the same... construction, property or slip, trip and fall are all quite different.  The investigator has to have the experience with that accident type to be able to identify and analyze the individual elements that were or were not in place.  The investigator then must be able to piece the elements together to understand their relation to the “whole” of the accident to determine the root causes and liabilities associated with the accident. 

CPS Checklist for Discovery

(While this applies primarily to California Child Welfare Agencies, it can be applicable to Child Welfare Agencies in the counties of other states as well.)

If you have not had a great deal of experience in litigation against county child welfare agencies, then there are some things which are helpful to know up front.  Like most people being sued, CPS agencies don’t like it.  They see themselves as “on the side of the angels” for children being abused and neglected and as proponents for strengthening families.  And indeed, the vast majority of the time, they are.  However, owing to a number of factors, including caseloads, insufficient staffing, divergent levels of skills, personal bias, ill-serving mindsets, and lack of resources; to name a few, mistakes will occur.  Sometimes in my experience, they are unintended. They may not be deliberate owing to the press of work that rushes a judgment or fails to look at all the details, including exculpatory evidence.

The number of individuals using these devices are living longer lives and enjoy a higher quality of life after receiving these life-saving implantable cardiac devices. Unfortunately, there are still several factors which can cause these devices to fail and not deliver the therapy to these patients as they are designed for. Some of these may include cardiac pacemaker lead failures 4, ICD lead failures 5 , pulse generator failures 6, interactions with electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems 7 , Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities 8, infection, and others which can potentially affect the proper functioning of these implantable cardiac devices.

Dental Malpractice: Is there a Case?

TASA ID: 16998

Whether on the defense or the plaintiff’s side in dental malpractice allegations, there are key questions and considerations that underpin the validity of any claim. These include: What is the nature of the injury? Is the injury severe enough to bring litigation? What is the standard of care for the particular circumstances? Was the injury due to a violation of the standard of care? This article was written to help attorneys define the standard of care in dental malpractice cases, more readily evaluate if the standard has been violated and work more productively with their experts.  

What Can a Literary Agent Do for You?

Backstory: As publishing companies feel increasing financial pressures and pressure from other media competing for leisure time, dollars, more and more editors are being let go. There is no corresponding diminishment of manuscripts flowing into those companies. Literary Agents serve as a filter for publishers.  Today agents are considered the gatekeepers of the publishing process. Many publishers will not look at a manuscript or proposal unless it arrives with an agent.
