When Does a Pedestrian have the Right of Way?

 WMBF.com is reporting on the tragic death of Deajah Hough – a 15-year-old pedestrian who was struck and killed while attempting to cross a busy intersection in Darlington South Carolina recently.

Deajah was hit by both an 18-wheeler and a mini van as she ran across the intersection to catch her school bus. The South Carolina Highway Patrol did not charge either vehicle with a crime as they say the girl was unlawfully crossing the busy highway at the time.

Being both a driver and a pedestrian is a hat most of us wear each and every day. After the tragic loss of such a young life, both drivers and pedestrians are left to wonder – when does a pedestrian lawfully have the right of way?

South Carolina Pedestrian Law

Any person on foot is considered a pedestrian. This includes runners, walkers, individuals in wheelchairs and people pushing strollers. Skateboarders and roller-skaters are also categorized as pedestrians.

According to the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles every mode of transportation has equal access to the roadway and generally it is a driver’s responsibility to yield to a pedestrian. If a driver sees a pedestrian they must make every attempt to slow down and prepare to stop.

Pedestrians always have the right of way when a crosswalk is present and it is safe for them to cross.

Tips for Pedestrians

Pedestrians are an active part of the roadway system. However, they must use diligence when traveling by foot. It is important to keep in mind that it takes a car traveling at any rate of speed several seconds to slow down and stop. Below are a few more tips to keep in mind when you are acting as a pedestrian.

  • Stay within the designated crosswalk lines at all times.
  • Only cross when given the proper signal to do so.
  • When available, always walk on a sidewalk.
  • Wear bright, reflective colors to be visible to passing cars.
  • Always be aware and check for cars before crossing any roadway.
  • Do not become distracted by a cell phone while attempting to cross a roadway or street.
  • Never walk behind a car.

Tips for Drivers

 A driver never knows when a pedestrian is going to attempt to cross a roadway so it is best to operate your car as though a pedestrian could try to cross in front of the driver at any time. The following are a few strategies to keep in mind when acting as a driver.

  • Always stay alert to the present of pedestrians, especially children.
  • When near a school or park a driver should take extra precautions for the presence of children and check twice before placing their car in reverse.
  • Sound your car horn to get a pedestrian’s attention.
  • Drive very slowly down a street lined with parked cars to avoid striking a pedestrian coming out from between the vehicles.

If everyone stays alert and minds the above guidelines, both drivers and pedestrians can both safely enjoy the road. However, accidents do happen.

How to Stay Safe from Semi/Tractor-Truck Accidents

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

How to Stay Safe from Semi/Tractor-Truck Accidents

 At least 60 people or more were seriously injured recently when an Amtrak train collided with a large semi-truck in Halifax, North Carolina.  CBS News reports that the oversized semi-truck was unsuccessful at an attempted left turn and backed the trailer onto the railroad tracks in order to correct itself. The truck then remained on the tracks as the train approached. The truck and its large load were sitting in the middle of the tracks when the train collided with it and then derailed.

In 2013, 95,000 people were injured in crashes involving large semis or tractor trucks. Of those injured, 71% were occupants of the passenger vehicle involved in the accident with the usually much larger and heavier truck.

The trucking industry is vital to our way of life and our economy. Mail, money, animals and virtually all types of marketable goods are transported around our nation by way of semi or large tractor truck. But the danger these very heavy, speeding loads create is quite real and the personal injury inflicted can be catastrophic for the victims.

 Truck Accident Law and Liability

 Several bodies of law govern the trucking industry. At the federal level, Title 49 Transportation of the Code of Federal Regulations dictates the standards owners and drivers must meet. This Code is critical in determining which party is liable when a trucking accident occurs.

The U.S Department of Transportation (USDOT), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and each state’s own legislature also mandate their own set of trucking regulations.

It can be tricky labeling the correct defendant when a collision with a semi truck occurs. Many different parties may be responsible for the victim’s injuries. These parties may include the driver of the truck, the truck’s owner, the company that leased the truck from the owner, or even the manufacture of the truck’s pieces and parts. It is imperative that victim’s retain the help of a qualified semi-truck accident attorney.

 Truck Accident Causes

 Semis truck collisions happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is as simple as a manufacturing issue – a tire that is poorly made and blows while the truck speeds down a highway. Other times, it is the owner of the truck who is at fault because he or she did not take the time to properly inspect the truck before sending it out onto the roadways.

Unfortunately, it is most often the truck driver who is to blame. The driver is often monetarily incentivized to drive a very long distance in as short a time as possible. A driver may speed or take very wide, dangerous turns to deliver a load quickly.

The driver may not take the proper number or length rest stops and could be under the influence of medications in order to help him or her stay awake for long periods of time.

 How to Stay Safe

 The average weight of a passenger vehicle is almost 4,000 pounds.  The average semi weighs close to 80,000 pounds. When the two collide, the passenger vehicle will almost always sustain serious damage.

To stay safe, consider the following tips:

  • Always stay in the semi truck’s line of sight and assume the driver has several blind spots.
  • Keep a safe distance from the semi truck whenever possible. The truck’s weight and speed make is very difficult for it to slow down quickly.
  • Make a pass by a semi-truck quickly.
  • Do not drive next to a semi-truck for long periods of time.

Finally, remember that a collision with a semi-truck can happen quickly and cause very serious injury to all of those involved.

Car Accidents and North Carolina’s Good Samaritan Law

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

 Car Accidents and North Carolina’s Good Samaritan Law

It is a situation no one wishes to ever be placed in. You witness a car accident. You can see that there are victims in need of immediate help.  Everyone wants to say that they would jump right in and assist the victims in anyway possible. And if you do – can the victims sue you later if your help actually causes him or her further injury? What if a victim dies because of help you administered?

It is a worst case scenario that unfortunately plays out in North Carolina and states around the nation each year – good Samaritans caught between what they know is right and protecting themselves from a potential lawsuit.

What are Good Samaritan Laws?

Generally, good Samaritan laws protect the average person who sees someone in need and extends help. A person, or “good Samaritan” who steps in to aid is shielded from liability because of they help they administer. Unless, the “good Samaritan” is completely negligent in helping, no lawsuit may be filed against the Samaritan.

Good Samaritan laws are often invoked in the context of car accidents.  If you attempt to aid a victim of a car accident, you are generally protected from any lawsuit based on the care you give.

In the United States there is no general duty to rescue someone in need. Further, the victim of an accident cannot sue a person who passed by the accident and did nothing to help.

However, as a matter of public policy, state legislature would like to encourage citizens to help one another, and thus have written good Samaritan laws.

Each state and the District of Columbia has a version of a good Samaritan law codified within their state statutes.  The laws vary greatly from state to state so it is important to know the law of the land in your particular state. 

What is the law in North Carolina?

North Carolina’s Good Samaritan Act statute protects a Samaritan from liability for civil damages if that person acted without compensation and in good faith.  The statute also states that the Samaritan must have acted voluntarily; it must also have been reasonably apparent under the circumstances that prompt actions and decisions were necessary and that any delay of treatment would have caused even more harm.

How to Safely Help After a Car Accident

If you do see a car accident occur while you are driving, what can you safely do to help the victims?

  1. Park your car a safe distance away from the scene: Do not park too close to the accident or block emergency vehicles access to the victims. Turn on your bright headlights to signal to emergency responders that they are nearing the scene.
  2. Check on the victims: From a safe distance at first, determine how critical the accident was, the number and severity of the injuries, and if you can safely provide further assistance.
  3. Call 911: You are being the most help by calling authorities and alerting the proper medical professional of the accident.

Car accidents and personal injuries occur every day on the roads.  If you need more information on the good Samaritan laws or were the victim of a personal injury, the experienced personal injury attorneys at Bice Law, LLC can provide you with excellent legal information.

FAQs: Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim in South Carolina 

In South Carolina, workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees that are injured while on the job. In exchange for these benefits, the employee gives up his or her right to sue their employer in negligence. Employees who are injured while working in South Carolina or develop an illness as a result of their working environment are eligible to collect benefits under the state’s workers’ compensation system.

What body of law governs workers’ compensation in South Carolina?

The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission has been granted statutory authority to create and administer the state’s workers’ compensation regulations.

The Commission decides the procedure to be followed in order to file a claim and to achieve a hearing. Visit their website for more information.

Who will pay my workers’ compensation benefits?

Any employer in South Carolina with more than with employees must purchase workers’ compensation insurance from a licensed insurance company.  The insurance company will then pay you on behalf of your employer.

How do I file a claim?

Usually, an employer requires you to inform them directly after you have been injured on the job or develop an illness.  You must give your employer notice of the injury within 90 days or risk losing your right to any benefits. The employer is then required to fill out a First Report of Injury form and file it with the Commission.

What if my employer refuses to report the accident to the Commission?

If your employer does not report the accident to the Commission, you will need to file a claim with the Commission yourself. You will need to fill out an Employee’s Notice of Claim form and pay a $25.00 fee in order to file the notice. You have two years in which to file your claim.

What type of medical care am I entitled to?

You are entitled to medical care for all reasonable work-related injuries or illnesses. All necessary treatments will be paid for by your employer’s workers’ compensation policy.

However, in South Carolina, your employer and their insurance carrier have the right to choose what doctor you are treated by. You may not be able to see your own doctor. If you choose to see your own doctor, your treatments will not be paid for under the workers’ compensation program.

Can I collect benefits for punitive damages?

Punitive damages are often awarded in negligence cases to compensate for things like pain and suffering. Under a workers’ compensation claim you are not entitled to punitive damages. When you file a workers’ compensation claim you are giving up your right to sue your employer for negligence and thus may not collect punitive damages.

How will I be compensated for my lost wages?

If you are unable to work because of a work-related injury or illness, you will be paid the wages you would have earned while you recover. You will receive 66 2/3% of your average weekly wages and this will continue until your doctor “releases” you, or approves your going back to work.

Workers’ compensation insurance exists in order to provide for both you and your family after you are injured on the job.  The process is complex and time consuming, especially at a time when you are not feeling your best. If you have been hurt on the job, contact the personal injury attorneys at Bice Law today. Your consultation with one of our skilled attorneys is free and will help to get you on the road to recovery.

Online Defamation on Social Media  

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram…the list of popular online social media sites goes on and on. Millions of people around the world are posting and tweeting their every move every day. These sites are an incredible way to make our world smaller and allow us to understand one another like never before

But, just like the Internet generally, social media sites create drama and trouble. To some people’s dismay, social media sites allow for “comments” – or free and open speech and discussion about a topic, blog or picture posted by another. Everyone has an opinion on everything and these sites allow that opinion to be shared with millions in just seconds.

What about when these “comments” become personal, accusatory, mean or downright false? Can someone be held liable in South Carolina, or anywhere for that matter, for defamation of someone’s character online?

Defamation in South Carolina

The Supreme Court of South Carolina defined defamation as spoken, written or otherwise communicated statement about another person that has had a natural tendency to harm that person’s reputation. Spoken defamation is known as slander and written defamation, or the type you would find online, is called libel.

In order to establish a case for defamation in South Carolina, a plaintiff must establish the following:

(1) A false or defamatory statement was made by the defendant;

(2) That the statement was unprivileged and published (or communicated) to a third party;

(3) Fault of the defendant for communicating the statement; and

(4) Damages of a special sort of harm to the plaintiff’s reputation.

What Does and Does Not Constitute Defamation Online?

A statement of fact made online is not defamation. Truth of the statement is an absolute defense to a defamation claim. A plaintiff’s case will be dismissed if the statement communicated is found to be true.

An opinion posted online is not a statement of fact and therefore not defamation. However, most courts will hold that if a reasonable person would deem the opinion as a statement of fact, the opinion will be considered a statement of fact, in which case, if false, it would be defamation.

Altering a photo or video posted online is defamation. If someone edits a picture to make another appear in a way that may damage his or her reputation, a defamation case is likely to succeed.

Who Should You Sue in a Defamation Case?

The proper named defendant in a case stemming from defamation online is the person who posted the libelous statement or photo. The proper named defendant is not Facebook or another website. The Unites States Congress passed the Communications Decency Act that protects websites like Instagram and Facebook from defamation suits.

Defamation online is a hot topic, and as long as people have access to the Internet, cases involving libel online show no signs of slowing down. Our personal injury attorneys at Bice Law, LLC are available to you if you have been the victim of online defamation.  Please contact our offices today to speak with one of our skilled attorneys about your case.

How Do I Protect Myself from “Superbugs” at the Hospital?

 

 

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

The same “superbug” strain of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (sometimes referred to as CRE) that killed two people in Los Angeles has found its way to a Charlotte-area hospital. A spokesman for the Carolinas HealthCare System reported that so far 15 patients were admitted to the hospital with the CRE bacteria while an additional 3 patients contracted the superbug while in the hospital. Another patient has died, although the precise cause of death is not clear.

What is a “Superbug” and Where Did CRE Originate?

The term “superbug” refers generally to any bacterial strain that has become resistant to current antibiotics and other medical treatments. The present strain of CRE was first discovered after seven patients at the UCLA Medical Center contracted the bacteria following endoscopic procedures. Testing later traced the bacteria back to two medical scopes that had been disinfected according to guidelines but still carried the bacteria.

Is There Any Way to Protect Myself from “Superbugs?”

Superbugs are, by definition, resistant to antibiotics and most conventional forms of medical treatment. This means that other forms of prevention and treatment are usually necessary in order for an individual protect him- or herself from infection. In particular, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises people in general and especially hospital patients to:

  • Inform their doctor of all hospital stays, including what facility the person was treated at;
  • Take antibiotics only as prescribed;
  • Be sure to continue taking any prescribed antibiotics until discontinued by a doctor’s order – even if the person feels he or she no longer needs antibiotics;
  • Insist that any healthcare providers wash their hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based cleanser before and after touching the person’s body or tubs going into the person’s body; and
  • Wash their hands thoroughly before preparing or eating food, before and after changing bandages, after using the bathroom, and after blowing one’s nose, coughing, or sneezing.

What Should I Do if a Loved One Contracts CRE?

If a loved one contracts CRE, it is important that he or she follow his or her doctor’s advice and direction. It can be frightening to be diagnosed with a superbug, but treatments are still available. Unfortunately, the person may be ill for a lengthy period of time, resulting in not only pain and suffering but medical expenses and time missed from work.

Furthermore, a superbug infection obtained from a hospital or medical center does not always mean the infected person can obtain compensation through a medical malpractice case. The heart of such a case requires the infected person to show he or she suffered an infection as a result of actions by the facility that deviated significantly from what a reasonable healthcare facility should have done. If the facility did not wash and disinfect scopes according to accepted guidelines, an infected patient may have a case; however, a facility which followed all applicable state and national disinfection guidelines cannot usually be held liable for a patient’s infection and resulting injuries.

At Bice Law, LLC, we are committed to helping those injured by medical mistakes and carelessness recover compensation for their injuries. If you or a loved one have been injured or become sick following a hospital stay, contact us at (855) 500-BICE right away to discuss your case.

What Should I Do After A Winter Car Accident?

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

The southeast is being slammed with wintery weather recently. Snow, sleet and icy conditions are predicted for many counties in North Carolina and the end is nowhere in sight.

Winter weather such as this creates dangerous and unpredictable road conditions for drivers who are unprepared to deal with the quickly developing hazards. Unfortunately, the number of car accidents and the severity of these accidents increase dramatically throughout the winter months.

What should you do if you are in a car accident? Such a situation can be very chaotic and everyone involved will be experiencing different emotions from fear to relief. However, it is imperative that you stay as calm as possible and call immediately for help. The following are a list of things you can do at the scene of an accident, or immediately afterwards, in order to ensure everyone’s safety and recovery.

Remain at the Scene of the Accident

North Carolina law requires that all drivers of cars involved in an accident remain at the scene if the accident resulted in any personal injury or property damage. Do not leave the scene of a car accident for any reason. You may leave to quickly call the police or to obtain medical help, but always return to the scene as soon as possible.

Check on all Drivers and Passengers Involved

When you have determined that you are not injured, check on your passengers. Then check on the drivers and passengers of the other cars involved or any pedestrians.

Call for Help

Always seek medical attention and help for victims who need it first. Do not move an injured party. Wait for medical professionals to administer medical care. A North Carolina driver involved in a car accident resulting in personal injury or property damage must call the police.

Exchange Contact and Insurance Information with all Drivers

All drivers involved must exchange names and contact information. Exchanging insurance information is not legally necessary, however, it is advisable. North Carolina does require a driver carry a minimum amount of car insurance. Be sure that your personal policy adheres to these minimums.

Speak with Anyone Who Witnessed the Accident

Talk with anyone who may have seen the accident occur. Ask if you may obtain their name and contact information. Both you and your passengers may be shaken up from the accident so it is important to verify what happened with those not directly involved.

Take Pictures

Use your cell phone or camera to take pictures of the scene of the accident. Be sure to get clear images of the road’s conditions, posted speed limit signs, and any damages.

Contact Your Insurance Company

You will need to contact your insurance agent to let him or her know you were involved in an accident. You should do this as quickly as possible after the accident.

Keep Good Records of your Costs Incurred

Whether it is for a personal injury or damages to your car, keep records of all costs you sustain after the accident. Keep good track of your medical bills related to the accident. Ask your auto body repair shop for a full, detailed invoice of the damages to your car and the costs to repair those damages.

Be Careful What You Say

It is best to not speak with anyone involved in the accident after you have left the scene of the accident. If someone contacts you, ask him or her to contact your legal representation. Do not pay any money to anyone without speaking to an attorney first.

Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

Being involved in a car accident is a frightening experience. The personal injury attorneys at Bice Law, LLC can help you navigate the complex and confusing events that take place after an accident. Contact our offices today to consult with an experienced attorney about your injuries.

Birth Injury Leads to South Carolina Medical Malpractice Suit

Charlotte, NC Personal Injury Lawyer

Parents of a newborn infant who suffered birth injuries have filed a federal medical malpractice suit against various healthcare providers. The suit alleges that the mother began seeing the defendants when she was 36 weeks pregnant. She initially received a sonogram, which revealed the presence of excessive accumulation of amniotic fluid around the baby. Despite this, the mother was never informed of the dangers of proceeding with a vaginal birth under these circumstances.

The mother was admitted several weeks later to a healthcare facility for the induction of labor. She was administered several doses of Pitocin to induce contractions. Throughout the delivery and despite signs that the fetus was in distress, a Caesarian section was never offered to the mother as an option. Nor was the mother informed of the possibility of birth defects and injuries as a result of the use of Pitocin. As a result (the suit alleges) the baby suffered a brachial plexus injury and was diagnosed with Erb’s palsy.

Will These Healthcare Providers Be Held Responsible?

In a medical malpractice case, a healthcare provider can be held responsible for injuries caused if the injured plaintiff is able to show that the treatment or care rendered by the provider fell below an “objective standard of reasonableness.” In other words, if the healthcare provider acted in a manner that a reasonable provider with the same background in the same community would not have, then the healthcare provider will be considered negligent and can be held responsible for the damages he or she caused.

As one can imagine, showing that a healthcare provider acted contrary to an “objective standard of reasonableness” is not always easy. Oftentimes, one or more medical experts are needed in order to establish not only what the provider should have done under the circumstances, but also that no reasonable provider would have done what the healthcare provider did in fact do. For instance, in the suit discussed earlier, the parents of the injured newborn will need to show that (for example) no reasonable South Carolina doctor would have continued to administer Pitocin to induce contractions under the circumstances.

How Does a South Carolina Medical Malpractice Attorney Help?

Some individuals injured by a healthcare provider believe their case is “clear cut” and can be easily won in court or settled out of court. However, just because a person is injured at a doctor’s office or in a hospital does not mean that person is entitled to compensation – first, it must be proven that the healthcare provider was so careless no other reasonable healthcare provider would have done what he or she did. A South Carolina medical malpractice attorney often has the resources necessary to find and produce medical experts who can evaluate and critique the level of care you received.
