Families once again rally to file lawsuit against PG&E

Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) is facing another major lawsuit after a family’s home was destroyed during a gas pipe explosion in September, reports the San Bruno Patch. Many people who file such cases use lawsuit loans from lawsuit cash advance providers to help them fund their cases.

Gale and Salvatore Bologna were forced out of their house, which they considered a safe haven for the wife as she requires a daily oxygen tank and is a paraplegic. Salvatore had to fill up two gas tanks and carry her out of the house as the neighborhood went up in flames.

Now that they have nowhere to live, the Bolognas fear for the life of Gale.

The lawsuit claims PG&E caused emotional agony, major disruptions in daily life and is liable for trespassing and negligence. While this is not a medical malpractice lawsuit, the couple is suing for damages that include the cost of healthcare.

On September 9, 2010, a pipeline explosion killed eight people and burned 37 homes to the ground. Many families involved in the explosion have filed lawsuits seeking damages for the pain inflicted upon them.

PG&E is currently awaiting a decision from the Judicial Council of California to see if one judge will hear all the cases filed against the company.

Mother sues jail doctor for medical malpractice after her son dies

A mother has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Trumbull County, Ohio, on behalf of her son, an inmate, who died after being shot with a Taser while incarcerated, reports The Vindicator. Many people who suffer personal loss or damage from such incidents contact a provider of lawsuit loans to get help with financing.

Joan Padula, the mother of Kurt Platzer, 32, from Warren, Ohio, said he had problems dealing with alcohol withdrawal while in his cell, which led to poor behavior.

Padula named Dr. Philip Malvasi as a defendant; as the medical director and physician of the jail, the mother believes Malvasi should have treated Platzer for his withdrawal.

Malvasi allegedly never saw Platzer, failed to provide treatment and did not send him to a hospital.

According to the suit, Platzer was fulfilling a 30-day jail sentence after he showed up in court under the influence of alcohol.

Padula claims Platzer became delusional on the second day of his jail term and fractured his cranium from banging his head against the wall.

On the third day, Platzer allegedly failed to co-operate with officers, who then used a Taser on him. Three hours later, the man was pronounced dead at a nearby medical facility.

According to Joan Padula, officers at the jail had knowledge of his condition and proceeded to use the Taser on him anyway. “To be [shot with a Taser] while in custody is completely unreasonable,” said Padula’s attorney. “There were multiple people on hand who should have managed the situation.”

Freddie Prinze Jr. sued for car accident

Former teen heart-throb and husband of Sarah Michelle Gellar Freddie Prinze Jr. has been named as the defendant in a car accident lawsuit after he allegedly rear-ended another driver, reports TMZ. Many people who file such claims use lawsuit funding from legal loan providers to help them finance their cases.

Legal documents obtained by the Hollywood news site said Prinze Jr. was driving a vehicle registered to Sarah Michelle Gellar in 2009 when he supposedly rammed into another car stopped at a traffic light.

The other driver alleges he sustained severe neck injuries from the crash and has lost the ability to perform at work. Reports did not state his job title, but the man claims he has been advised to seek surgery in order to repair the damage.

Sources close to TMZ state the alleged victim did not want to actually sue Prinze Jr. but was forced to after his insurance company refused to pay for medical treatment.

Calls to representatives for Prinze Jr. have not been returned, but sources also stated the driver is seeking over $100,000 in damages.

Prinze Jr. recently became a producer and director for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

Toyota lawsuit becomes a $10 million settlement

In what is being classified as one of the most difficult legal battles in Toyota’s turbulent history, a family has won a $10 million award in a car accident lawsuit, reports the Los Angeles Times.

News of the crash caused shock waves around America after it was alleged that the wreck was due to a defect in some of Toyota’s vehicles. An audio recording of the accident was caught on 911 in “bone-chilling” detail, according to the Times and led to the recall of numerous vehicles manufactured by one of the world’s largest car companies.

The lawsuit, filed in March, claimed Toyota was liable for creating a faulty product and wrongful death. Mark Saylor was driving with his family when the car suddenly accelerated to 120 miles per hour, crashed into another vehicle, through a guard-rail and into a field where it flipped multiple times before exploding, states Reuters.

Relatives of each passenger in the vehicle had filed the suit on behalf of the deceased and reached a settlement in September, but the amount had been kept under wraps until recently.

Toyota expressed regret that the sum of the settlement had been released, but maintained that it was not an admission of liability.

Lawyers for the family of the deceased, however, claimed, “Ten million dollars [$10 million] is a strong indication of admission of liability by Toyota.”

Family sues Toyota for the death of their daughter

Toyota Motor Corporation is facing another car accident lawsuit, this time regarding the death of a couple’s daughter in 2008, reports the Los Angeles Times. Many people who suffer personal loss or damage from such incidents contact a provider of lawsuit loans to get help with legal financing.

On December 19, 2008, Brian Martinez, 18, was driving his girlfriend, Kathleen Recinos, 18, in a 2009 Toyota Scion when it accelerated unexpectedly and refused to slow down. Both Recinos and Martinez died in an accident when the Scion crashed into two vehicles.

The parents of Recinos have filed the lawsuit, claiming the car has a faulty electronic throttle control system and said Toyota’s vehicles should have an override system that cuts off the accelerator if the brake and gas pedals are pushed down at the same time.

A spokesperson for the automaker said, “This lawsuit is based on a wholly unsubstantiated and speculative claim that there is a defect in Toyota’s electronic throttle control system that causes unintended acceleration.”

According to the family’s lawyer, Recinos was pregnant when she died.

The news source did not state how much the family is seeking in damages.

As cop awaits trial, family plans for lawsuit

Many people who suffer personal loss or damage from such incidents contact a  provider of lawsuit loans to get help with legal financing.

Ashlie Krakowski and David Servin, both 19, died as they were driving in Orange, Connecticut, on June 13, 2009. Officer Jason Anderson was reportedly returning back to Milford after responding to a call in West Haven.

Members of the Krakowski and Servin families were in court last week as Anderson declined a plea deal regarding the charges he faces in the accident.

Both families chose not to speak with reporters but a lawyer for the Servins’ said they planned to file the suit sometime in the earlier portion of next year.

The families are waiting because they want to see dashcam video tapes from Milford police cruisers. According to the Post, hundreds of hours of footage were erased from the video, but no decision has been handed down regarding whether foul play is confirmed or denied.

“I think this is going to take a subpoena,” said the lawyer regarding how he plans to get the tapes.

Couple sue doctor for unexpected child

A couple has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a physician from Eugene, Oregon, after he failed to properly perform a vasectomy, reports The Register-Guard. Many people who file such cases use legal loans from lawsuit cash advance providers to help them fund their cases.

Scott and Donnita Bassinger alleges Dr. Stephen Schepergerdes of the Oregon Medical Group did not tell the couple that he was unable to complete the vasectomy on Bassinger, despite saying there was complications in his records.

The procedure which occurred in 2007 was meant to prevent the couple from having any more children, but in December 2008, Donnita learned that she was pregnant.

While they claim to be happy about their newborn child, they are suing Schepergerdes for the cost of raising a baby they never planned on having. They also allege the doctor misread a lab report which clearly showed Bassinger still had viable sperm, despite telling the couple he was sterile.

The lawsuit seeks $650,000 to pay for their son’s welfare during his childhood and his college education and damages stemming from the “professional negligence, misrepresentation and the risk our family was subjected to,” according to documents.

Many people who file such claims use lawsuit funding from legal loan providers to help them finance their cases.

Brandon Lee Jessie, 24, was allegedly driving a stolen vehicle and fleeing police when he reportedly hit James Fentress Jr.’s car. Fentress, 36, died at the scene of the accident.

The family says police officers were reckless while pursuing their suspect, which resulted in Jessie’s collision with Fentress. Had police stopped at the intersection where the crash took place, the accident may not have occurred, they said.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for lost wages, emotional trauma and punitive damages, to deter similar activity from occurring again.

Jessie has already been indicted for murder and assault with an automobile in addition to other charges involving the accident.

The potential high cost of using an attorney can sometimes lead to the need for a plaintiff advance from a lawsuit loan supplier.

A medical malpractice lawsuit has ended in a mistral after a doctor named as the defendant treated a juror who fell ill in the courtroom, reports The Jonesboro Sun. Many people who suffer personal loss or damage from such incidents contact a provider of lawsuit loans to get help with legal financing.

During the opening statements of a case against Dr. Stephen Eichert for not administering the proper test before performing surgery on Cristina Renee Chaffin’s back, the juror became sick.

Chaffin alleges Eichert did not follow protocol before the procedure and failed to explain the risks involved with the back surgery performed in 2006. After her condition did not improve, Chaffin visited another doctor who recommended corrective treatment.

Eichert treated the unnamed juror in front of other members of the jury, which led the attorneys for the defendant and plaintiff to agree that a mistrial had occurred. According to the news source, a new trial will start on January 11, 2011.

In the suit, Chaffin seeks $75,000 in damages for follow-ups required from the original surgery. In addition she is suing for mental and physical suffering, lost wages and other costs.

Man dodges lawsuit first time, but plaintiff gets an extension to serve

A car accident lawsuit originally filed in July has received an extension to serve the claim against a defendant, reports the Clarion Ledger. Many people who file such cases use legal loans from lawsuit cash advance providers to help them fund their cases.

Stuart Irby, a Jackson, Mississippi businessman, is facing a lawsuit from Jeremy Sherrod who was reportedly injured in a rear-end crash Sherrod claims was caused by Irby.

Sherrod is seeking $25,000 in damages and cites Irby for being negligent while driving when he collided with the back of Sherrod’s vehicle.

According to the lawsuit, “The impact of the defendant’s vehicle striking against the rear of the plaintiff’s automobile was so forceful and violent that it caused severe damage to the plaintiff’s automobile and said impact further caused plaintiff to sustain painful and serious bodily injury.”

However, police reports say no one was injured when they came to the site of the incident. Irby was ticketed for no proof of insurance.

The lawsuit received an extension to serve Irby because a process-server was told the businessman was on vacation and it was not clear when he would return. Irby has still not been served, but lawyers for Sherrod say they plan to act soon.
