Personal Injury: what does it mean and what are your rights?

| Serious Injuries, Defective Products

Beasley Allen attorney Graham Esdale visits the Beasley Allen Report to discuss personal injury claims. He talks with show host Gibson Vance about what defines a personal injury or product liability case, and how individuals can pursue a claim. Graham worked as an assistant district attorney prior to coming to Beasley Allen. He says his work in the DA’s office prepared him to work with victims of personal injury or product liability, who are struggling with situations involving catastrophic injuries, or who have lost a loved one. Many times, when a personal injury lawyer investigates a case, he discovers a defective product is to blame.

Graham is currently working on cases involving Toyota Sudden Unintended Acceleration. In these cases, which involved the recall of more than 14 million vehicles worldwide, vehicles would suddenly speed out of control, often resulting in crashes, serious injuries and deaths. The auto manufacturer blamed the problem on faulty floor mats and accelerator pedals, but lawyers insist the problem is linked to the vehicle’s electrical system. Single vehicle accidents that result in catastrophic injury and death are very often linked to defective products, such as tires, seat belts, air bags, seats and even weak roofs that collapse in a rollover accident. Product liability claims also may arise from injuries from defective consumer products.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
