        What Juries Do Not Know – The Truth About Insurance and Trial Lawyers

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        What Juries Do Not Know

        99% of trials in personal injury cases are about insurance.  What juries do not know, is that the true battle is between the injured individual and the insurance carrier who represents an individual or corporation who is being sued.  The jury is led to believe that the Defendant is an individual or a corporation, but the case is really about his insurance policy and the insurance company… and the droves of attorneys for the insurance company who will fight not to compensate fairly and pay what’s due.

        Common Construction Site Accidents

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Construction sites are rife with potentially fatal hazards. This is one reason why OSHA and other governing bodies are so strict when it comes to enforcing jobsite safety regulations – reducing construction site accidents is of great importance.

        Unfortunately, many construction zone managers and third-party companies who work onsite overlook workplace safety laws. This often leads to serious and potentially deadly injuries to workers and innocent bystanders.

        The construction industry is responsible for 20 percent of all on-the-job fatalities in the United States. In other cases, injuries lead to permanent disabilities and prevent victims from returning to work.

        An American-Made Cigarette Lighter Caught Fire in My Hand

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Question:

        On the 31.05.01 I had a serious accident involving a cigarette lighter from an American manufacturer. After following careful refuelling instructions, the whole lighter burst into flames, severely catching my left hand on fire in the process.

        The injuries I received to my left hand were that severe that it required emergency medical attention for severe burns plus further treatments including physiotherapy.

        Still today, after a year of my accident I still have problems with two fingers on my left hand that were worst effected by this. I still have a small reacurring amount of pain, discomfort and stiffness from the joints of these two fingers. I also suffer from reacurring nightmares of my accident

        I have sought legal advice about my accident and have been told that I have a strong claim for compensation from this manufacturer, backed up with photographic evidence of my injuries sustained.

        The reason why I have contacted yourselves is to ask, if you think I have a strong enough claim for compensation? Also, being that I am from England, would yourselves consider handling my claim for compensation with me being an overseas client?

        I strongly believe that by using an American law firm to handle my claim, it would be handled with far greater efficiency than that of an English law firm. I would be extremely grateful to yourselves if you would consider handling my claim for compensation.

        Can I Sue a Restaurant for Burns from a Hot Plate?

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Question:

        I was eating at a restaurant when the server dropped a hot plate and it was heading for a baby’s head. I jumped out of my chair and grabbed for the plate causing burns on my arms and I also threw my back out of place. Is this grounds for a lawsuit and can I get some type of compensation without having the attorneys involved?
