America is truly a nation on the move. An incredible variety of vehicles criss cross our nation's roads, railways and airspace on a daily basis: trucks, vans, buses, cars, SUV's, pickups, motorcycles, scooters, bicycles, recreational vehicles, freight and passenger trains, and private and commercial aircraft. Unfortunately, all of this movement can sometimes lead to serious injuries for even the most cautious of drivers, passengers and pedestrians. At the Scanlan Law group, we have been helping the victims of transportation injuries to recover damages for more than 25 years, and we know what it takes to bring a transportation case to a successful conclusion.
One of the marvels of the modern era has been the power of technology to make our lives better. It seems as if every day a new product or technology is invented that helps us to do something faster, easier, better or much more cheaply. But there can be a dark side to all of this technological advancement. As our ability to make better products increases, so too does our ability to injure ourselves from defects in these products. For example, auto travel is probably a lot safer since the invention of air bags, but air bags can also kill and maim.
Despite all of the headlines about child sexual abuse, it is still largely a silent epidemic. Many children who have been abused do not tell their parents or other caregivers about it, or they delay informing anyone about it until long after the abuse has occurred. Even if a child informs his or her parents about an incident of abuse, many parents (for various reasons) often fail to take any action about it. At the Scanlan Law Group, we are experienced in handling sexual abuse cases, and we don't hesitate in taking every action necessary to bring these cases to a successful conclusion.
For more than 25 years, the Scanlan Law Group has represented individuals who have been injured as a result of medical malpractice. Unfortunately, it's a tragedy that happens all too frequently. Every day, doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals across the country commit acts of negligence that can result in serious and permanent injuries for the unfortunate patient. Whether it involves a physician's failure to properly diagnose an illness, a pharmacist filling the wrong prescription, or a nurse's mistake resulting from her failure to properly read a patient's chart, medical malpractice in the U.S. results in millions of dollars of additional medical expenses for injured patients, and a lifetime of pain and suffering, both for the patient and for his or her loved ones.
The workplace can be a very dangerous place. According to statistics from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there were almost 5 million nonfatal workplace illnesses and injuries in 2002, and more than 5,000 fatal work injuries. Although these numbers appear to be decreasing, almost everyone is likely to suffer some type of work related injury illness during their working career.
