January 1, 2013–Charlotte, North Carolina, and Boynton Beach, Florida–A woman suffered serious injuries as the result of a dog bite incident involving a pit bull, according to WCNC-TV News. The Charlotte woman, who has not been identified, is said to have suffered life-threatening injuries from bites to her leg by a pit bull dog, although the extent of her injuries and their exact nature remain unclear. Authorities were called to a home at Linda Vista Lane to find the woman in serious condition as the result of bites by at least one pit bull and possibly two of the animals. It is unclear if the woman was the owner of the dogs; at this point, no charges have been filed.

In the meantime, a two-year-old was bitten in the face in Boynton Beach in another pit bull attack, according to WPTV News. The little girl is now out of the hospital, but her face is severely damaged by the attack. The child was sitting in her grandfather’s lap and holding a toy when the dog lunged at her and bit her. The dog belonged to the child’s uncle, who had the animal euthanized after the attack. The child will be faced with a series of further surgeries to repair her facial wounds.

Pit Bull Attacks Account for High Percentage of US Fatalities

A woman was severely injured in a Los Angeles car accident, which involved several vehicles. According to a report in the Los Angeles Daily News, the major injury crash occurred at Victory Boulevard and Whitsett Avenue in Valley Glen, the morning of June 19, 2012. Officials say a man with a history of seizures was driving eastbound on Victory Boulevard when he veered into oncoming traffic.

The man was apparently driving against the flow of traffic when he crashed into an oncoming vehicle that was westbound. Both vehicles spun out and crashed into several stopped cars on Whitsett. The at-fault motorist showed no sign of seizures, but complained of pain. A female driver suffered a broken leg and was critically injured. Three motorists were transported to an area hospital. A total of six cars were involved in the pileup.

My heart goes out to the injured victims of this car accident. I wish them the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

In Los Angeles, Rodney King is somewhat of an infamous icon; his videotaped police beating is so well-known that searching “police beating” on Wikipedia.org will take you right to it. Rodney’s tragic beating followed his high-speed pursuit by the police while he was intoxicated, which makes his recent arrest all the more interesting. Rodney’s initial 1991 beating by Los Angeles police department officers resulted in brain and kidney damage as well as skull fractures.

During these harsh times, catastrophic injury victims are having a difficult time recognizing when their case warrants a personal injury law firm evaluation. Since insurance companies are denying claims like a prom queen at a dive bar, car accident victims are taking matters into their own hands and taking their cases to small claims court. Under some circumstances, this is the best thing to do; under most, it is the worst possible action one could take to receive compensation for their injuries. So how is one to know when they need an attorney? The answer differs on a case-by-case basis.

Personal Injury Cases with Minor Injuries

No accident victim wants to hear that their injuries are minor, but if you want to obtain fair compensation you will have to adhere to a thought process that is anything but just. Insurance adjusters are in the business of making money. They do not care that your life has been flipped upside down and that you will forever be scarred as a result of your accident. They prove this every time they limit insurance payouts. If they deny a claim and the injuries are relatively small, personal injuries attorneys will not pick up your case because it will cost too much for you to pay them. This has resulted in many victims with minor injuries to seek justice in small claims court, but many of them did not realize the extent of their injuries until it was too late.

Being involved in a catastrophic injury accident is difficult enough without having to deal with the likes of Farmers Auto Insurance. Farmers has been known to deny legitimate claims and offer very low settlement amounts for accidents that result in huge medical expenses. Victims of these horrific car accidents are left to wonder why an incident that should have been taken care of immediately ends up taking years to wrap up.

Founded in 1928, Farmers Insurance is the third largest insurance company in the U.S. providing various types of insurance including polices for cars and truck. Since their inception, they have managed to perfect the art of limiting payouts and have even helped pioneer computer programs to give them excuses to do so.

Just Blame Colossus

One way that Farmers likes to redirect criticism for their underhanded tactics is by blaming their indiscretions on a computer program they call Colossus. Colossus was designed to evaluate personal injury claims and put a number on what the claim is worth. As you can imagine, entering all catastrophic injury victims into a one-size-fits-all emotionless printer/popcorn machine isn’t going to produce the results that injured victims need. Although victims need compensation for their physical disabilities that resulted from their accident, that is not all. Many suffer from post traumatic stress after their SUV rolls over fifteen times at high speeds down the freeway, have to recover from the loss of a family member that was in the vehicle, or are no longer able to perform the same job. Blaming a heartless denial of a claim to a person because of a computer is just plain ignorant.
