Common injuries in the agriculture industry

Not every industry in California a person can work in is fraught with hazards. However, one industry that does rank as high risk is agriculture. Anyone working in this industry should make themselves aware of the risks and what they can do to be safer on the job. 

Brain injury and assault

From playgrounds with dangerous equipment to motor vehicle collisions, people injure their brains in many ways. Unfortunately, some of these injuries are the result of an intentional act, such as physical assault. Many of the brain injuries that occur in the U.S. each year are caused by an attack and the consequences can be absolutely devastating for victims. In some instances, a brain injury may be so severe that the victim will never be able to enjoy the lifestyle they had prior to the attack. Kampf, Schiavone & Associates understands the obstacles that those with injured brains face and we hope that people struggling with these injuries can move forward.

If your loved one passed away in a nursing home and you believe that their death occurred because of an employee's poor behavior, you may want to look into the case further and pursue the justice your loved one deserves.

How risky are routine surgeries?

The chances are good you have had or known someone who has had a routine operation or procedure in California. Such medical care is called "routine" because it is something done quite often and therefore a procedure that doctors know how to do well.
