Trampoline Parks Rising In Popularity and Injuries

Trampoline Safety

Trampoline Parks Rising In Popularity and Rising In Injuries On a typical weekend in Mississippi, the trampoline parks here are at a large capacity with hundreds of kids and adults bouncing, jumping, and playing. Trampoline parks have now become a billion dollar industry. But, in the past several years in the United States, many people have developed severe injuries from these trampoline parks, even death. The numbers could be even higher but many injured people are forced into arbitration with those trampoline parks and ordered to sign confidentiality agreements that stop them from telling their story. In a recent video from a...

Can I Get a Copy of My Incident Report?

Incident Report Slip and Fall

Can I Get a Copy of My Incident Report? You probably would not expect to hear “No” to that question, but that is what Wal-Mart and other big box retailers will tell you when they have you complete an incident report at their store after you fall or get hurt. Don’t accept No for answer. Demand a copy. Or better yet, snap a photo of the completed form before you turn it in. You can also take a photo of the manager taking report, her name tag, the office you are completing report in and the spill that caused the fall. Keep your...

Hit and Run in Mississippi

What should I do if I’m in a hit and run car accident in Mississippi?   First, do not chase them.  Let me say that again.  Do not chase the person you were in a hit and run car wreck with.  People do this because they have a sense of justice.  I understand that, but chasing someone could get you hurt...

Do lawyers really act like Saul?

Saul - Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have become pop culture phenomenon’s on Netflix.  One of the characters is the sleazy money hungry lawyer called Saul.  He wears the car salesman suit and fits the obnoxious mold that we expect attorneys to have.  He even has this endearing side and line of ethics that he will not cross, although he always tries to figure out a way to get what he wants without getting himself in trouble.   As a lawyer, I can appreciate why people have stereotyped us, and why the show portrays Saul that way.  The purpose of this blog is...

You could be on the hook for your own medical bills and repair costs. You are...
