Use of Force and Law Enforcement

TASA ID: 4252

Law enforcement personnel are often faced with difficult decisions, perhaps, none more difficult than using force. The primary objective for law enforcement when engaged in a use-of-force incident is to restrain and control while utilizing an “objectively reasonable” amount of force. The often asked, debated, and second-guessed law enforcement question is how much force is necessary, required, or acceptable? The following terms require discussion:

Excessive use of force: This term can be described as using more force than a reasonable person would deem reasonable and necessary.

Unnecessary or unreasonable amount of force: This term refers to law enforcement personnel who utilize force where a reasonably prudent and well trained police officer would not. If law enforcement personnel are accused of utilizing too much force, accountability for the incident(s) will include, but not be limited to, possible discipline for violating department policy and standards, agency rules and regulations violations, internal investigation complaints, possible criminal charges, and civil lawsuits.

How to Use Neuropsychological Measurements to Enhance Your Presentation

One of the most overlooked aspects of litigation is the power of measurements---numbers, math, statistics and “proof” of pain and agony in cases involving personal injury.  Some of the brain injured claimants may provide 20 subjective complaints and most contain memory difficulties, especially recent or immediate memory difficulties.  Remembering three items on a shopping list or pain intrusion can be part of the current complaints.

Personal Injuries and Cycling

TASA ID: 1199

CNN Money[1] recently announced, "For entrepreneurs, cycling is the new golf." In fact, Google that thought and you will see quite a few references. The popularity of bicycles has expanded faster than any other participant sport in America.  Recent sales figures indicate a 33.2% increase in volume from only a few years ago. To put that in perspective, there are far more cyclists in America than golfers, tennis players and skiers combined.  The participation profile indicates many more adults, from their mid-20s through their mid-60s are now riding and even racing bikes.  While a lot of us are enjoying our bicycles, we cannot forget the ever present risks.  Many of the new crop of mature freedom-loving riders are more secure financially, so those risks are worth calculating. 

Medical Spas Acting Beyond Their Expertise: Adverse Complications Resulting in Potential Litigation

TASA ID: 3797

The very term "medi-spa" or "medical spa" raises a conundrum which the industry does not want to address. Is this a medical facility which, therefore, should meet the standard of care expected of physicians?  Is this a spa facility which conjures expectations of a pampered experience consisting of massage, nourishment, meditation and the like?  Or is this a combination of the two?

Dog Bite Cases

TASA ID: 1218

There are about five million dog bites reported each year in the United State . . . Those reported dog bites are likely a very small percentage of dog bites that actually occurred . . . In some states a prior history of aggressive or biting behavior must be established before pursuing liability beyond medical claims. It is important to ask the right questions, and it is not always the best timing to bring in an expert after the depositions have been taken.
