Personal Injury Cases Commonly Arising in Poplar Bluff, Missouri
Slip and falls, auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, and motorcycle wrecks are common in Poplar Bluff. Unfortunately, so are instances of medical malpractice and nursing home abuse. Being able to recover compensation for medical bills, time off from work, and other losses following an incident will normally depend on whether you can establish the at-fault party’s negligence. In the context of injuries occurring on someone else’s property, owners (and their employees) generally have a duty to keep the premises free from hidden dangers or otherwise unsafe conditions. Examples could include a leaking cooler at a grocery store or an uneven surface.
Auto accidents occur throughout Poplar Bluff, especially on busy roadways like Highway 60. Drivers in Missouri must act reasonably behind the wheel at all times. This means drivers should refrain from speeding, reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and taking unnecessary risks. If you were injured in a wreck, you may require immediate treatment at a medical facility like Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center at 3100 Oak Grove Road, Poplar Bluff, MO 63901. Negligent drivers will be held responsible for their actions and resulting damages, which could include medical bills, surgery costs, prescriptions, vehicle repairs, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other losses. However, getting the defendant to admit responsibility can be challenging. Speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney in the Poplar Bluff area can make the difference in whether you are able to recover full compensation or not.
Medications are supposed to be safe, plain and simple. When a doctor writes you a prescription for diabetes, high blood pressure, or any other medical condition, you should not expect the medicine to have been created in an inherently dangerous fashion that causes unintended side effects. While drugs are supposed to obtain FDA approval before they are introduced into the marketplace, some companies hide research regarding negative side effects in an effort to bring the drug to market quickly and maximize profits. Pursuing a drug company for injuries often falls into the product liability area of personal injury law. Big drug manufacturers have legal teams devoted to defending injury claims, so you should retain legal representation of your own with the resources needed to take those companies on. If your medication injury was caused by being prescribed an incorrect dosage, you may be able to assert a medical malpractice claim.
