Serious injuries can have a life-altering impact on your physical well-being.  Extensive surgery and medical treatment, long-term physical therapy, and permanent loss in physical function and ability are just a few of the physical symptoms that a victim of serious injury may experience.  While great focus and attention is given to the obvious physical symptoms of a serious injury, the lingering emotional and mental health symptoms often go undiagnosed and untreated.

What Were the Worst Cases of Corporate Misconduct in 2017?

Published on Dec 19, 2017 at 2:41 pm in Personal Injury.

2017 was an unparalleled year for news regarding corporations that committed fraud, allowed employees to take part in sexual misconduct, or took part in financial scandals and cover-ups that wronged workers and/or customers. We’ve all heard the news stories and consequently had our lives affected by the Equifax scandal, the Takata airbags debacle, the misconduct Wells Fargo took part in, and the flood of sexual harassment allegations that are currently sweeping through the news and entertainment industries.

When corporations put profit margins before the safety and welfare of employees and customers, injustice occurs. These are the instances when lawsuits do the most good and can ensure corporations put an end to wrongful decisions and behaviors. Oftentimes, corporations conduct themselves poorly for one fact and one fact only– They think they can get away with it. Lawsuits help make sure they can’t get away with misconduct and treat employees and customers alike fairly and equally.

Carmen and her friend were jumping into the water from the top level of the boat dock.  Her father, Jimmy Johnson, lowered a metal ladder into the water so the girls could climb out.  Just minutes later, he heard his daughter’s friend scream for help.  He jumped into the water and immediately felt the piercing electric shocks.
