Serious Injuries Will Have a Long Term Impact on Your Life and The Lives of Your Loved Ones!

The long-term effects of a serous personal injury are not always immediately apparent. Memory loss, motor skills, chronic pain, and the onset of other symptoms years after the injury often lead to expensive long-term medical treatment and loss of earning capacity. It is important to have an advocate that has extensive experience in the longer term aspects of your injury so that you can recover proper compensation.

We consult medical experts and financial impact analysts to accurately quantify the economic impact of your injury. We build our cases on the basis of the nature and severity of an injury and the financial costs created as a result. When additional medical treatment is needed or disability threatens, we want our clients to be financially prepared to meet the needs and challenges created ad a result of their injury. Such burdens should be shouldered by those responsible for the loss rather than the victim or the public.

Changes to Tennessee Work Injury laws- Nashville Attorney Jim Higgins

Changes to Tennessee Work Injury laws- Nashville Attorney Jim Higgins


Male: Time for Legal Eagles and changes could be on the way to the states Workers’ Comp law yet again.

Female: Joining us know and telling us more on why that could be a bad thing for employees, we have Jim Higgins from The Higgins Firm. Another change for workman’s comp?

Jim Higgins: Yes. Well, you know, the legislature is back in session and there’s just bills and bills are coming in and one thing that they’ve addressed over the past few years and they’re doing again is the workers’ company laws. And there’s been this trend over the past few years to kind of take away things from the worker.

Female: OK. And I guess it depends on what side your own on that but it – it’s a little disheartening for people like my office that represents employees because there’s really just limited benefits now as it is. I mean, the comp laws there to give people medical care and get them a check while they’re healing and get them back to work.

And to take away from those modest compensations that you have right now is a little tough. But two things that are – that are kind of big is one is they’re trying to take away repetitive injuries from the work comp law. So, in other words, carpal tunnel or anything that you do from overuse that creates a problem, they’re saying, OK, that’s not going to be covered to the comp law.

And what’s hard about that is, you know, they’re all just kind of a case-by-case basis. I’ve got somebody that’s worked as a mechanic for 20 years and everyday he comes in and use power tools and his – and he starts developing a problem with his hand then it’s probably work-related.

Female: Right. Right.

Jim Higgins: You know, and to say that he’s not going to get any help or he can’t get any type of medical care for that is, I think, a little harsh. But that is one thing that the committee is considering and putting through right now.

Male: And there’s a second item as well that you’re talking about?

Jim Higgins: Well, the other one that’s interesting is, right now, if you’re a drug-free workplace and someone test positive for drugs, there’s a presumption that that’s what’s caused the accident which I think everybody’s fine with, you know, where nobody can come in, say, we’re for drugs.

Female: Right.

Jim Higgins: But what happens is they’re trying to change that to, say, if you test positive that you just don’t get any benefits or that the burden it gets a benefit is so hard, you won. And the problem with that is, you know, I’m seeing cases where people have had something in their system that may have been from a week prior. They have – I’ve had accidents where – where clearly not their fault, where they were, you know, accidently struck by another employee, you know, hammered or things like that have had happen that there was no way they could avoid and you’re really just punishing that person for something that had nothing to do with a positive drug screen.

So it just seems that, you know, we’re taking a way what our system is for and that’s really to take these cases as they come.

Female: So, for right now, where do we stand on this? Because you said these are bills that are apparent before them and you think they’re going to be passed or what’s going to happen next?

Jim Higgins: You know, who knows? I think a majority with the legislative changes, if it’s – if it’s deemed to be more pro-business, it seems that those things are getting through so there’s a good chance that these bills or some of these – form of these bills may pass. So, if you’ve got an opinion, you’re either for or against it, you know, now’s your time to call.

Male: Right. There’s really a move on Capitol Hill to sort of deregulate and to make it easier on business right now. We talked about tort reform. I know you’ve been on here talking about that. So, these are sorts – they’re sort of bills that we’re seeing and business friendly, perhaps but not necessarily lawyer friendly.

Jim Higgins: Yes. You know, injury or client-friendly. I mean, it’s just hard. I just hate putting everything in this blanket no more benefits than this.

Female: Right.

Jim Higgins: And the same thing with the caps and things like that, there’s cases that they’re just not good for and it’s hard for a legislator to say, OK, we’re taking that away from the judge and the jury and we’re going to tell you what it’s worth.

Changes To Illinois Child Support Laws For 2017

Changes To Illinois Child Support Laws For 2017

In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, attorney Kevin O’Flaherty of O’Flaherty Law discusses upcoming changes to Illinois Child Support Laws in 2017.

On August 12, 2016, Governer Rauner signed into law Public Act 99-0764, which will change the manner in which Illinois divorce courts calculate child support. The law will be effective on July 1, 2017 and will modify two sections of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (“The IMDMA”), specifically 750 ILCS 5/505 and 750 ILCS 5/510.

According to the current child support law, which you can read about here, courts are directed to award as child support certain minimum percentages of the non-custodial parent’s net income, regardless of the income of the custodial parent. The new law replaces these minimum guidelines with an “income shares” model, which is already in use in most other states.
