Fears Nachawati Takes on Texas Wrongful Death Case

On August 3, 2016, a Texarkana man was tragically killed in Sabine County, Texas as a result of a motor vehicle accident involving a tractor trailer and an unoccupied vehicle. Jerry Lee Woods, 58, was the driver of a 2006 tractor trailer carrying a load of asphalt and paving equipment. It appears that the tractor trailer’s brakes malfunctioned which prevented Woods from stopping the vehicle at an intersection of two major highways. The vehicle rolled over and Woods was ejected from the truck. Woods had two passengers with him at the time of the accident who both sustained serious injuries.

Trucking companies have a duty to maintain and service their vehicles in a reasonable manner. Further, additional state and federal regulations apply to owners of large tractor trailers as the 40 ton vehicles have the potential to cause substantial damages, significant injuries, and even death. These regulations are set in place not only for the public’s safety but also for the safety of the truck drivers and passengers.

Fears Nachawati is representing the heirs of Jerry Woods regarding his wrongful death. Woods’ tragic and unexpected death has taken a heavy toll on his children and family. Fears Nachawati is committed to pursuing the claims of Woods’ children in order to obtain just and fair compensation for the death of their father.

Partner Matthew McCarley appointed to Plaintiffs' Executive Committee in IVC Filter Multidistrict Litigation

 Matthew McCarley, a partner at Fears | Nachawati Law Firm, has been appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee (PEC) in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) regarding Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filters manufactured by Cook Group, Inc.   IVC Filters were implanted to prevent blood clots from becoming coronary or pulmonary embolisms. However, reports first surfaced in 2005, that the radial arms and struts of the retrievable filters had broken off inside the body of patients and led to many dangerous health complications. Since the first reported complications, patients with filters implanted longer than 6 months have experienced complications at high rates of occurrence.  The complications include but are not limited to, erosion of the filter into the wall of the Vena Cava, perforation of the radial arms and struts into major organs and arteries, and tilting of the filter. 

 
As part of the Plaintiff’s Executive Committee, Mr. McCarley will be working alongside other nationally prominent attorneys as lead plaintiffs’ counsel for all IVC filter plaintiffs.  
 
If you or a loved one experienced any issues because of an implanted or removed IVC filter, we encourage you to consult with one of our IVC Filter attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim against the responsible party will ensure relief from the burden of costly medical expenses. We will also pursue compensation for the pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work as a result of IVC filter complications.

Fears | Nachawati Law Firm Wins Substantial Verdict For Client in Donald R. Maddox v. Inland Truck Parts Company

We are proud to announce that our experienced team of legal counsel has recently won a substantial verdict for our client, Donald R. Maddox. On July 22, 2014, our council, headed by attorney Garnett Hendrix, appeared before a jury in the 44th Judicial Court in Dallas County. There, the jury rendered a verdict of more than $1,700,000.00 to our client. The verdict takes into consideration pain and mental anguish sustained in the past and in the future, as well as loss of earning potential that resulted from our client’s accident.

Our counsel became involved in Mr. Maddox’ case after an avoidable mechanical failure severely injured his knee. The civil case of Donald R. Maddox v. Inland Truck Parts Company began after Maddox, employed as a truck driver, was unloading a truck that had recently been serviced by Inland Truck Parts Company. The transmission of his truck shifted from the bell housing assembly that housed it, causing the transmission to shift, causing repeated injuries to his knee. It was later found that Inland Truck Parts Company had left off essential bolts from the mechanism. Because the truck was not serviced properly, our client Mr. Maddox was left in debilitating pain that ultimately required a total knee replacement. This injury has severely hindered our client’s ability to work and to go about his day-to-day activities.

We anticipate that our client finds some solace in this jury verdict decision. Accidents, especially ones that could have been avoided, can be emotionally, physically and financially difficult. If you have been injured due to a company’s negligence, you may be entitled to pursue a claim against the responsible party. Our experienced team of physical injury attorneys at Fears | Nachawati can provide the legal guidance and representation you need to successfully achieve a claim against the responsible party.

Lubbock Trial Attorney Violates Client's Constitutional Rights

In 1996, Evangelina Cruz died of a gunshot wound in Lamb County, near Lubbock, Texas. The legal repercussions of that gunshot continue to reverberate in the west Texas legal community. 

 

The men accused of killing Ms. Cruz, Jesus Ramirez and Alberto Sifuents, were initially prosecuted and convicted of capital murder. In 2008, however, they succeeded in appealing the verdict. The appeals court overturned their convictions, concluding that the attorneys who represented Mr. Ramirez and Mr. Sifuents provided legal defense at trial so insufficient as to violate the clients' constitutional rights. Now, Mr. Cruz and Mr. Ramirez have filed suit in a Lubbock federal court, seeking $12 million in damages on the basis that the original trial in Lamb County constituted a conspiracy aimed at an unlawful conviction. 

 

At the heart of Mr. Ramirez and Mr. Sifuents's conspiracy claim is the appellate court's conclusion that their original trial defense was so inadequate as to vitiate their constitutional right to legal representation.

 

Fears | Nachawati recognizes that not all attorneys provide the legal representation that they should. Some counsellors are so poor, in fact, that a court would refuse to acknowledge their representation as meaningful legal counsel, as the Ramirez-Sifuents case suggests. You deserve excellent legal counsel. If your attorney has done such a poor job in your case as to substantially impair your ability to recover, your legal rights may have been injured as a result. To fight back, contact us! For a free consultation, call 1.866.705.7584 or email info@fnlawfirm.com.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Faces Long, Uncertain Road after Traumatic Brain Injury

 Recovering at a Houston hospital, Rep. Gabrille Giffords has begun rehabilitation after what doctors describe as her “spectacular” recovery from a gunshot wound infamously sustained in a Tuscon, Arizona shooting. Nevertheless, as her doctors have explained, retraining the brain after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can take years and often includes intensive speech, occupational and physical therapy. Said Dr. Robert Stevens, an associate professor of neurology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, “You can’t be in a hurry. This is a long, drawn-out process, and it can be extremely frustrating.”

 

Giffords ordeal shines a light on the costs and difficulties associated with TIBs. If you or a loved one has undergone a traumatic brain injury – caused by a fall, a gunshot wound or other kind of accident – you need a medical and legal team that can help you navigate the long and difficult days ahead. Fortunately, you can ask for no better than the experienced and expert attorneys at Fears | Nachawati.

Apple lawsuit over privacy concerns

Apple, maker of the iPhone and iPad, has been sued on behalf of numerous consumers by Fears | Nachawati.  The lawsuit alleges that Apple allowed application makers access to users personal data, without the knowledge or consent of the users.  This data in turns allowed advertisers and marketers to track users unique data, including their location, online habits and activities.

Firm sues Apple and others over user tracking

Fears | Nachawati has sued Apple and a number of its iPhone application makers for various privacy violations.  The firm and its client allege that Apple and the application makers helped advertisers secretly create detailed profiles of iPhone users without their knowledge or consent.  Apple and the applications makers allegedly mined data from the consumers' use of their iPhones, including browing habits, location, and shopping habits.  This invasion is possible because Apple assigns a unique identifier to each iPhone, which allows advertisers to correlate data to specific individual end users. 

For more information about the lawsuit and Fears | Nachawati, please call the firm at 1.866.705.7584 and also see this article at wired.com. 

Apple's unique identifier lets advertisers secretly track consumers

A lawsuit recently filed by Fears | Nachawati alleges that Apple Inc.'s Unique Device Identifier (UDID) permits advertisers to secretly track which applications users download and how frequently they use those applications.  Unlike cookies, there is no way for a user to turn off or block the UDID.  These privacy invasions violate federal and state law.  Apple knew about the invasions.  Rather than disclosing to iPad and iPhone users that advertisers could find out this information, Apple did not inform or obtain consent from its customers.  The lawsuit names Apple as a defendant, along with the makers of several popular applications.  Consumers seek injunctive relief ordering Apple to stop these privacy invasions, along with money damages. 

For more information about this lawsuit, please see this article in the American Bar Association Journal or call the firm at 1.866.705.7584. 

Fears | Nachawati files suit in California over privacy concerns

Your personal injury lawyer will thoroughly prepare you for the deposition by telling you what questions to expect and going over your answers with you. Your attorney will depose the defendant as well.

 

The good news for you as the accident victim is that your Texas personal injury lawsuit will generally require very little participation on your part. Your attorney handles all of the paperwork as well as the communications with the party against whom you are bringing the suit.

Construction site accident facts and statistics

Every day in the United States, workers are injured while on the job. Sadly, the number of injuries – and fatalities – is far higher for those working in the construction industry. In fact, in 2004, the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics stated that the construction industry has the second highest number of fatalities of all industries in the U.S. The study also revealed that construction workers have a higher-than-average number of days off from work due to illness or injury.

Other studies have indicated that one out of every ten construction workers will be injured on the job at some point during their career.

The stakes are even higher for construction workers in Texas. Since 1992, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas has ranked either first or second in the number of workplace injuries per year – construction site accidents accounted for the largest number of those injuries. In 2004, for instance, Texas was in second place with 114 fatalities in the construction sector.

Other shocking statistics related to construction site accidents include:

·         Research conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health showed that, in 2007, construction accidents caused the highest number of fatalities of any industry.

·         In 2007, over 1,100 construction-related fatalities were reported.

·         Falls are the most common cause of fatal construction site accidents.

·         After falls, transportation accidents, falling objects and electrocution are the most common causes of construction-related deaths, respectively.

·         Of all workers compensation costs across the country, 15% are due to construction site accidents.

As these statistics show, the construction industry is a highly dangerous occupation that puts workers at serious risk of suffering an on-the-job injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction site accident, contact us today.

 

The Texas personal injury lawyers of Fears | Nachawati provide free legal advice to victims of construction site injuries. Simply email us at info@fnlawfirm.com or call us on our toll-free number at 1.866.705.7584.

Man arrested after Fort Worth auto-pedestrian collision

At the Law Firm of Fears & Nachawati, Majed Nachawati leads a team of Personal Injury attorneys that represent clients throughout the state of Texas that have been involved in a serious auto accident.  " Right now as our state is enjoying fiesta, NBA playoffs and the start of the baseball season we will have to endure an increase in the amount of innocent victims that will have their lives dramatically changed by the actions of another driver.  My team is prepared and ready to fight for victims of auto accidents! " Majed Nachawati

FORT WORTH -- One man was in the hospital and another man was in police custody early Monday following an overnight auto-pedestrian collision.

It happened just before midnight Sunday in the 3200 block of North Main Street on the Fort Worth's north side, said Sgt. Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the traffic investigation unit.

A 48-year-old man was struck by a passing vehicle as he and his nephew were crossing the street, Bangs said.

The driver of the car slowed but then fled the scene, Bangs said. Motorists who witnessed the collision followed the car to a nearby bar two blocks away.

The witnesses said the man parked and went into the bar. They contacted officers who responded to the injured man and gave a description of the man who had gone into the bar, Bangs said.

Officers found the 19-year-old man inside, Bangs said.

"He subsequently confessed to the offense," he added, "and was taken into custody."

The man would be charged with causing the accident, but there was no evidence that the man was drunk, even though he was found in a bar, Bangs said.

The pedestrian who was injured was in critical but stable condition at John Peter Smith Hospital early Monday, Bangs said.

Baby Boy Abdallah Khader Returns Home

Our clients' son, Abdallah Khader, who was critically injured in an accident caused by the perfect storm of irresponsibility, has been released by Cook's Children's Hospital in Fort Worth and is now being cared for by his loving family.  Abdallah has the ability to breathe on his own.  However, his brain function remains minimal at best.  Bars believed to have overserved alcohol to Richardson, who in turn crashed his vehicle into the Khader family's vehicle as they returned home from a family gathering, need to be aware of potential negligent conduct and take responsibility for preventing intoxication in serving future patrons.  This tragic drunk driving crash was caused not only by Richardson, but any bars believed to have overserved Richardson.  His blood alcohol level was over three times the legal limit-.28.  The Fears | Nachawati Law Firm remains dedicated to sending a message to all bars that the law requires serving alcohol to its patrons in a responsible manner, such that tragic incidents and the suffering of innocent motorists and, in particular, children are eliminated.  Questions concerning dram shop suits, which address bars that overserve patrons can be directed to the lead personal injury lawyer, Majed Nachawati, who will stop at nothing to hold bars and drunk drivers accountable to the fullest extent allowed by our civil justice system.  Fears | Nachawati Law Firm - Toll Free Phone Number 1.866.705.7584, email - mn@fnlawfirm.com.

Texas Woman Breaks Neck, Back In Airplane Turbulence

A woman who was paralyzed after disobeying warnings to remain in her seat during a turbulent flight over Texas has suffered the same type of catastrophic injuries as the late Christopher Reeve, according to her doctor.

"She is paralyzed from the nipples to her toes," said Dr. Trey Fulp, the spinal surgeon who will perform a second operation today on the passenger at the McAllen Medical Center in McAllen, Tex. The woman was one of two passengers and one crew member on Continental flight 511 from Houston to McAllen who were injured early Saturday morning in mid-flight.

Fulp described the severity of the passenger's injury as a "hangman's fracture," a term used to describe the neck break commonly seen in patients who hang themselves.

Fulp's wife, Kathy Fulp, was one of the first nurses to treat the patient. She told ABCNews.com that the 47-year-old Spanish-speaking woman, whom she declined to identify by name, suffered a broken back at the thoracic level and a fracture between the C1 and C2 vertebrae in her neck, the same injury that left Reeve paralyzed after falling off his horse in 1995.

"She had gotten up and gone to the bathroom," said Fulp. "When she was in the bathroom the flight apparently hit turbulence and she was thrown to the ceiling, which is how she got the C1 C2 fracture. Then she was thrown back against the toilet, which broke her back."

It was not immediately known if she will be able to walk again.

Kathy Fulp said that flight attendants rushed to the passenger's side and moved her into the aisle of the aircraft for the remainder of the approximately 50-minute flight.

The two other individuals were treated for minor injuries, according to Fulp, who said one of them had torn a ligament in her knee. The injuries were sustained during the descent of the aircraft, approximately 15 minutes before landing.

Mary Clarke, a spokeswoman for Continental Airlines, confirmed that three individuals from Flight 511, en route from George Bush Houston Intercontinental Airport to the McAllen-Miller International Airport, had been taken to the local hospital after being injured in the turbulence.

Storms in the Houston area had delayed the flight several hours and had caused major delays for both inbound and outbound aircraft.

Fears | Nachawati Reaches Settlement on Behalf of Employee Injured on the Job

This week, Fears | Nachawati Law Firm obtained a significant confidential settlement on behalf of an employee, who was a tile setter, in the pool industry and was injured on the job, herniating two disks in his back that later required surgery.  Each year, thousands of white-collar and blue-collar workers are injured on the job--oftentimes creating a future loss of employment capacity and tragic life-changing circumstances such as divorce and financial difficulties.  Employers that do not purchase approved workers' compensation insurance policy coverage, can be held liable under Texas law through filing a state court lawsuit on an injured worker's behalf.  Oftentimes, the only way to independently verify whether an employer is subject to suit in state court is by contacting an experienced law firm that can verify worker's compensation coverage with the Texas Workers' Compensation Commission.  An injured worker can also check online with the commission through the Online Employer Workers' Compensation Insurance Verification System, which is not always 100% accurate.  If you are unsure of your legal rights and want to be informed concerning whether you can sue or have a case, contact an attorney or law firm experienced with on-the-job injuries.  Questions can be direct to Fears | Nachawati Law Firm, Phone 1 (866) 705-7584 or by email at info@fnlawfirm.com.

 

 

Digitek / Digoxin Nationwide Drug Recall - Digitek


The law firm of Fears | Nachawati is currently taking cases for individuals who have suffered injuries due to Digitek, also known as Digoxin. Recently, a drug manufacturer, Actavis Totowa LLC, a United States manufacturing division of the international generic pharmaceutical company Actavis Group, has initiated a Class I nationwide recall of Digitek (digoxin tablets, USP, all strengths) intended for oral use. The products are distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc., under a "Bertek" label and by UDL Laboratories, Inc. under a "UDL" label. Actavis manufactures the products for Mylan and the products are distributed by Mylan and UDL under the Bertek and UDL labels. Bertek and UDL are affiliates of Mylan.

The nationwide recall is due to the possibility that tablets with double the appropriate thickness may have been commercially released. These tablets may contain twice the approved level of active ingredient than it appropriate.

Digitek is used to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. The existence of double strength tablets poses a risk of digitalis toxicity in patients with renal failure. Digitalis toxicity can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, diarrhea, excessive urination, low blood pressure, swelling, abnormally slow heartbeat, heart palpitations, loss of appetite, cardiac instability and bradycardia. Death can also result from excessive Digitalis intake. Several reports of illnesses and injuries have been received.

If you or a loved one has been injured, hospitalized, or has lost their life due to digitalis toxicity, contact our law firm immediately to learn about your legal rights. Fears | Nachawati Law Firm, 1 (866) 705-7584 or by email at mn@fnlawfirm.com
