The different classification systems for traumatic brain injuries

A traumatic brain injury is an injury that affects the brain. Like other types of injuries, traumatic brain injuries can range greatly in severity, with mild injuries causing temporary side effects and the most severe causing permanent damage or brain death.

Because of the varying severity these injuries can have, different classification systems for these injuries have been developed. The three main classification systems are as follows:

  • Loss of consciousness – a system that classifies injuries based on the amount of time a person is unconscious.  
  • Post-traumatic amnesia – a system that classifies injuries based on the amount or severity of amnesia a person experiences
  • Glascow coma scale – a comprehensive system that gives victims a score from 3-15 (3 being the most severe) based on their responses to questions testing the verbal, motor, and optical functions.

Toyota settles $3M sudden acceleration case

Automotive manufacturer Toyota reached a deal in a sudden acceleration case in the United States last Friday after an Oklahoma jury declared the company responsible for the 2007 Camry crash that killed one woman and injured another.

As a result of the settlement, Toyota has agreed to pay around $1.6 billion in economic losses, which could include repair costs or lowered value costs, over the acceleration issues, but did not cover any personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits. However, the jury did order the company to pay $3 million to the victims.

According to the lawsuit, software malfunctions in the electronic throttle control system of the victim’s 2005 Camry caused the vehicle to become uncontrollable, resulting in her death in a car accident.

The Camry has not been included in Toyota’s recently issued recalls.

Filing deadlines for bringing a claim against municipalities and public authorities

It’s almost common knowledge that if you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a municipality or public authority, you may be able to sue. However, New York legislation may restrict your right to file a premise liability lawsuit if you don’t complete certain steps within a strict time limit.

According to current law, a Notice of Claim, which is simply a document submitted in writing explaining the accident and the basis for the lawsuit, must be filed within 90 days of the incident. If a Notice of Claim is not filed within 90 days of the incident, a victim may lose his or her right to sue completely, except in the case of a few limited exceptions.

You can learn more about these filing guidelines and time limits, here.

Brooklyn judge fines insurance company employee on ethics violation during personal injury lawsuit

According to Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Leon Ruschelman, ACE America Insurance Company claims director Miriam Mosseri violated the “no contact” rule during settlement negotiations in April 2013, resulting in an ethics violation and fine. When finding herself alone with the plaintiffs in the courtroom, she divulged some details of the settlement offer ACE had in store for the plaintiffs, resulting in the $10,000 fine.

The American Bar Association has been known to inform insurance companies and their representatives that they aren’t permitted to “deal directly with any claimant represented by an attorney without the consent of the attorney.”

Ruschelman noted in his written opinion that Mosseri’s action “was done with a specific and definitive goal and purpose,” which was to influence the plaintiff’s decision regarding the case.

The personal injury lawsuit stemmed from a December 2008 incident in which a Duane Reade truck hit plaintiff Shirley Miller, causing her brain injuries and impaired communication skills.

British producer pays FedEx man $2.9M to settle personal injury claim

British Broadway producer Cameron Anthony MacKintosh paid a $2.9-million settlement after losing a lawsuit brought against him by a 54-year-old FedEx delivery man, who claimed MacKintosh’s slippery office floors caused his bodily injuries, according to a July 29 report in the New York Daily News.

MacKintosh, who produced critically-acclaimed plays such as Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Mary Poppins, apparently wasn’t satisfied with the cleanliness of his 1650 Broadway office so he employed the services of long-time employee Esme David to clean his W. 51st Street office. However, when the unidentified 19-year FedEx employee came to deliver a package around 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 13, 2008, he slipped, causing multiple serious injuries.

The billionaire MacKintosh, who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1996, was not present in the office when the accident happened and wasn’t questioned under oath in relation to the lawsuit.

If you too have been injured in a slip and fall accident that could have been prevented if another party had acted more carefully, call the lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP, at (212) 779-0057. We help victims of such accidents in New York seek financial compensation for their losses.
