Mississippi BP Oil Spill Attorneys Discuss Possible Effects of Oil Spill on Fertility

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

The BP oil spill in April of 2010 was an unusual event that piqued the curiosity of the residents of coastal communities. The spill was all over the news, but the beaches remained open, so curious people could get as close as they wanted to to the oily water. Some of the people that went to look at the beach even went in the water. Most people who went to look at the oil spill walked along the beach, surveying the damage from what they thought was a safe distance. They were not thinking about whether the oil spill posed a threat to their health. Oil does have a profound effect on human and environmental health, so it is a good thing that the beaches eventually closed, and people were prohibited from going near them.

The environmental and economic effects of the BP oil spill were disastrous and far-reaching. Some of the people who suffered effects from the spill are the people who walked on the beaches or swam in the water after the spill. Some of those people have experienced illnesses or injuries because of their exposure to oil and oil spill cleanup agents. The health effects include respiratory ailments, rashes, fertility problems, and other ailments. Some of the children born to women who were able to conceive after being exposed to the oil were born with respiratory issues, skin sensitivities, and other health concerns. Research on the health effects of petroleum hydrocarbons does indicate that exposure to those substances increases the risk of spontaneous abortion in women and poor semen quality in exposed men. Unfortunately, the health effects that the people who live in the area of the oil spill are suffering are sometimes difficult to link directly to oil exposure. This means that many of the claims for damages that were filed by people who got sick, who had children that were born sick, or who had fertility issues after the oil spill were denied.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Talk About Single Vehicle Crashes

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

A recent single-vehicle accident claimed the life of one man. The man was driving his truck, and it suddenly left the roadway and hit a tree. He was not wearing a seatbelt, and he was ejected from the vehicle. This tragedy serves as a reminder that single car accidents are more deadly than other types of accidents.

Approximately sixty-five percent of fatal automobile wrecks are single vehicle crashes. Unfortunately, fatal single-vehicle crashes are also the toughest accidents for accident investigators to understand because the person who had the most information about what happened is deceased.  While the cause of an individual single-vehicle accident can be hard to discern, there is plenty of information available on the topic of how drivers can prevent single vehicle crashes.

For example, scientific evidence has shown that tired drivers drive similarly to drivers who are under the influence of alcohol, For this reason, it is no surprise that tired drivers are often involved in single-vehicle accidents. Getting the rest that you need is a way that you can decrease your risk of being involved in a single vehicle accident. Sometimes, even drivers who started their journey well rested experience fatigue after driving for hours. If you are driving and you begin to get tired, find a place to rest before you continue on your way. Taking that rest break could save your life.

Another frequent cause of single vehicle accidents is alcohol use. Many single-vehicle wrecks occur when a vehicle leaves the roadway and either hits a tree or flips over down an embankment. When a driver has consumed alcohol, their reaction time is slower than normal, and their judgment and depth perception are reduced. When a driver operates their vehicle while they are under the influence of alcohol, it is all too easy for them to misjudge a curve in the road or to fail to make a necessary course correction in time to avoid an accident. Avoiding alcohol use before and during driving significantly reduces your risk of being in a single-vehicle accident.

Distracted driving and speeding are other frequent causes of single-vehicle accidents, and it is not difficult to understand why – those activities take the driver’s attention away from the road and deprive them of valuable time that they may need to avoid an accident. Fortunately, in regards to the common causes of single vehicle accidents, there is a common characteristic that provides an opportunity for drivers to avoid single vehicle accidents – choice. Speeding, driving tired, distracted driving, and drunk driving all happen when a driver makes a choice about what they will do both before and during their drive. This is good news for drivers because it empowers them to make choices that can reduce the chance that they will be involved in a single-vehicle accident.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Discuss Pile-Up Accidents

Monday, August 29th, 2016

A recent nine car pile-up accident left three people dead and several others injured. The cause of the wreck is under investigation. The fiery wreck took hours to clear and serves as a reminder to drivers that accidents can happen quickly and without much time for you to respond to them.

When you drive anywhere, you share the road with other drivers. At some times, there are many drivers on the road with you and at others, there are few. However, it only takes one other vehicle, an animal, and sometimes even no other vehicle at all for an accident to occur. Once an accident occurs on a roadway, there is a danger that other vehicles will become entangled in it if they are unable to avoid it successfully. When one or more vehicles collide with a vehicle or vehicles that were involved in a collision, the result is called a chain reaction accident or a pile-up crash.

There are a few things which increase the likelihood of an accident turning into a pile-up crash. Traffic is one obvious factor because vehicles are traveling close to one another with little time and space for sudden maneuvers. Chain reaction accidents can also happen in bad weather when the road conditions are slippery, and the visibility is poor. Pile-up accidents can be caused by distracted drivers on even the sunniest, driest days of the year.

Fortunately, you can take action to decrease the likelihood that you will be involved in a chain reaction accident. For example, maintaining a keen awareness of your surroundings will go a long way towards giving yourself every opportunity to avoid any obstacle in the roadway, including a wreck. Also, move over whenever you see a vehicle stopped on the road or the shoulder so that you don’t collide with it. Follow other vehicles at an appropriate distance to reduce the risk that you will get caught up in chain reaction accident. Leave a gap of one car length for every ten miles per hour of speed that you are traveling so that you can see what is going on in front of your vehicle and have enough time to respond to it and avoid a collision. Do not forget to adjust your driving to the weather and the road conditions. Remember that fog, rain, sleet, and snow affect both traction and visibility and adjust your speed and driving style accordingly. Paying close attention to road conditions and how you are driving gives you the best possible chance of avoiding a pile-up crash because it gives you more time to respond to things in the roadway like accidents, animals, or traffic that has slowed down or stopped.

Mississippi Trucking Accident Attorneys Talk About Accidents Involving Multiple Trucks

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

A recent accident involving three tractor trailers and other vehicles claimed the life of a UPS truck driver. The accident occurred on Interstate 20 in Newton County. The driver of one of the trucks and his passenger got hurt in the wreck, and the driver of the third eighteen-wheeler was not injured. This accident started out with one rear-end collision, and a third truck crashed into the back of the second truck. The driver who died in the crash was driving the third truck.

Tractor trailer accidents are often both severe and fatal. Because eighteen-wheelers are so large and so heavy, any accident involving one or more of them can cause fatalities, serious injuries, and massive amounts of property damage. Unfortunately, accidents involving multiple tractor trailers can happen at any time. However, the risk of those accidents happening is higher during morning and evening commute times, when the roads are crowded with trucks and other vehicles. When trucks are traveling near each other, there are several ways that they might collide with each other. Sometimes, as happened in the accident mentioned above, one eighteen-wheeler rear-ends another and sometimes other trucks or vehicles hit with the first two trucks. These rear-end collisions often cause a lot of damage to the trucks. Also, the driver of the truck that collides with the rear of the first truck can become trapped in the cab of their truck, resulting in serious injuries or death from injuries, fire, or an explosion. Pile-up or chain reaction accidents are another way in which multiple eighteen-wheelers can collide. Side impact accidents are another possible multiple-truck accident scenario, especially when tractor trailers are driving close to each other.

Whenever there is a trucking accident, there is often a complicated set of facts. This can make it difficult for accident victims and their families to pursue claims for damages. The reason for the complexity is that trucking accidents involve more parties than the drivers and any passengers who may be at the accident scene. Some tractor trailers are driver-owned, but many others are owned by trucking companies and are covered by commercial insurance policies. The trucking company and insurance company are parties who have interests in the outcome of the accident investigation, so whenever an eighteen-wheeler gets into a wreck, the trucking company calls its insurer to notify them of the crash and the insurer often immediately dispatches a team of investigators to the accident scene.

The “accident response teams” that respond to accident scenes on behalf of insurers and trucking companies are not neutral parties. If you are ever at the scene of a trucking accident, remember that those individuals represent interests that may be contrary to yours. You are free to refuse to speak with them until you have consulted an attorney.

Mississippi Worker’s Compensation Attorneys Discuss Workplace Deaths

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Did you know that an average of one American worker dies on the job every two hours? This sobering statistic is just one of many numbers that describe the picture of workplace deaths in America as compiled by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organization’s (AFL-CIO) twenty-fifth annual Death on the Job report.

In addition to the workers who die on the job, other former employees die from illnesses that are related to their former employment, such as black lung disease and silicosis. It is estimated that fifty thousand former employees die from job-related illnesses each year. Unfortunately, in addition to presenting statistics that show numbers that exceed what many of us would think are the numbers of people who die on the job each year, the report also discusses ongoing issues that create continued safety risks to American workers. For example, the fines that state and federal Occupational Safety and Health Administrations (OSHAs) are low enough that they do not deter unlawful conduct by employers. Also, the OSHAs on both the state and federal levels are understaffed – under two thousand inspectors are charged with the monumental task of inspecting approximately eight million workplaces. If you calculate that statistic out, each workplace would have a state inspection once every ninety-seven years and a federal inspection once every one hundred and forty-five years.

Mississippi residents take note – your state is the state with the fourth most workplace fatalities. As far as professions are concerned, oil well and refinery work, construction, logging, farming, and fishing were the occupations with the most fatalities. The statistics show that older workers are more likely to die on the job than younger workers. Causes of death on the job include murder, and murders accounted for nearly twenty percent of female workplace fatalities and eight percent of male workplace fatalities.

The report also detailed the current state of legislation affecting workplace safety. A 2015 two-year budget agreement includes a law that increases federal civil fines and adjusts them for inflation. The agreement also authorizes state and federal OSHAs to raise the maximum penalties by approximately eighty percent, which adjusts them for inflation that occurred since the last time the penalties were calculated in the 1990s. For example, the maximum penalty for a serious violation would increase from $7,000.00 to approximately $12,500.00, and the maximum penalty for a willful or repeat violation will increase from $70,000.00 to $125,000.00.

Mississippi Trucking Accident Attorneys Discuss Dangers of Dump Truck Work

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

A dump truck driver went missing after the truck he was operating slid down a slope and into a river. The man was picking up slag rocks off of barges when the accident happened. Rescue crews with boats worked through the night trying to locate the driver in the water, and search and rescue teams continued to look for him as the investigation into why and how the dump truck rolled into the river began.

Dump truck operators face dangers on the job every day. When an accident occurs, there is great potential for serious injury or death. Dump truck accidents can happen in ways that are as varied as the work that dump truck operators do. For example, an accident in a landfill resulted in the death of a dump truck driver who was buried underneath several tons of construction materials that were dumped on top of him and on top of his truck by another dump truck operator.

Dump truck operators can be injured or killed in accidents on roadways, in the same manner that drivers and passengers in other types of vehicles can. When dump trucks are present at construction sites, there is always a danger that a dump truck operator who is outside of their truck could be struck by another dump truck as it passes through the site. Loading and unloading create other situations in which a driver may be outside of their truck and at risk for rocks, dirt, rubbish, and other materials to fall on them, which could injure or kill them. Other dump truck accidents occur near waterways, in quarries, or in other areas where the ground underneath where the trucks are working creates a hazard of tipping, falling, or other unexpected movements of the truck, which can hurt and kill the driver.

Accidents involving dump trucks are similar to other types of trucking accidents in that dump trucks are often owned by trucking companies and insured with commercial insurance policies. Accidents involving dump trucks can involve a lengthy and complicated claims process involving multiple parties. A dump truck accident can leave a driver seriously injured and facing lost work time as well as a long recovery.  A dump truck accident could also rob a family of a loved one suddenly and without warning. Both of these situations make it difficult for those with personal injury or wrongful death claims to pursue them.

Mississippi Whistleblower Attorney Explains the Sealing of False Claims Act Complaints

Monday, August 15th, 2016

When a whistleblower complaint gets filed under the False Claims Act, the United States Department of Justice needs time to investigate the allegations of fraud. The government’s interest in the secrecy of the complaints is so crucial that the defendants in these types of claims are not even served with the complaints until the cases are unsealed. For this reason, whistleblower complaints that are filed under the False Claims Act are filed under seal and must remain under seal for sixty or more days.

Sometimes, though, information gets out despite the sealed status of a case. In the highly publicized False Claims Act case against State Farm, the attorney who represented the homeowners sent documents from the case to journalists from a variety of high profile media outlets while the case was still under seal. The whistleblowers, in that case, the Rigsby sisters, did win a bellwether verdict in federal court in Mississippi when a jury found that State Farm had submitted a false flood claim to the United States government.

State Farm appealed the decision and presented an argument to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the case should have been dismissed because the seal order on the case had been violated. The 5th Circuit denied the appeal and refused to set a standard that seal violations would automatically result in dismissal of the case. Instead of automatic dismissal, the 5th Circuit adopted a balancing test from a 1995 case in the 9th Circuit, U.S. v. Lujan. When the court applied the Lujan test to the State Farm case, they arrived at the result that the Rigsbys’ suit should not have been dismissed because the whistleblowers themselves did not violate the seal order in bad faith. The court said that it was their lawyer who violated the order, and it would be unfair to impute that mistake to them.

The case and the issue of seal violations are before the Supreme Court, and State Farm filed its merits brief on July 29. State Farm’s argument is that False Claims Act complaints are not supposed to serve as litigation bargaining chips, and they could become just that if there is not severe punishment for private whistleblowers who go public with their allegations. The case is still before the Court, and many different interest groups are interested in seeing what the Court will say about the matter in its decision.

Mississippi Whistleblower Attorneys Talk about Job Loss after Going Public with Information

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

A young professional is out of a job after he informed the public that there are lead joints in Jackson’s water distribution system. The man was working for the Jackson Public Works Department as an engineer-in-training was working on a water main replacement job when he discovered a band of shiny, corroded lead connecting two pipes. He was surprised to find lead in the city’s water pipe system, and he showed people at a local newspaper what he had found. The newspaper reported the man’s findings, making them public knowledge.

Before the incident involving the lead on the pipes, the young man was working diligently for the city, doing things like inspecting newly installed water lines and preparing contract documents. He had recently taken on the task of managing the city’s storm water permits, and he was even expecting a promotion. Unfortunately, the city fired him shortly after he disclosed to the public that he had found lead in the water distribution system. The man wants to continue working for the city, and he will appear before the city’s personnel board to ask to return to his previous position.

The attorney who represents the young man feels as though his client got fired for speaking to the media – for engaging in his Constitutionally protected right to free speech. The city is concerned the man’s conduct in sharing his findings with the newspaper may cast the city in a false light and damage its reputation.

As is the case with many whistleblower situations, the man approached his superiors and informed them of the situation before he went public with any information. His supervisors discouraged him from approaching the city council about the issue and they warned him not to talk to the press. The response from his supervisors left the man feeling like he was being asked to withhold the information, and that did not sit well with him because lead in water is a serious public health issue. In fact, lead in water is a serious public health problem in Jackson because testing had previously revealed high levels of lead in water samples collected in homes throughout the city. The city maintained that plumbing within the individual homes was the likely source of the contamination and made no mention that the lead could be coming from the city’s water distribution pipes.

Barrett Law PLLC:  Helping Whistleblowers Expose Wrongdoing throughout Mississippi

Cities and towns provide essential resources to their residents. Infrastructures like water and sewer systems serve city residents, and while most of the time there is nothing but benefit flowing to the residents from the use of the infrastructure, there are situations in which damage or disrepair to the infrastructure can put the public’s health at risk. Fortunately, once someone sees a potential hazard, it can then be made known to the city so that they can take steps to address the issue. However, cities and towns are not always willing to address issues right away, and sometimes the only way to ensure that they address the issue is to notify the public. If you have disclosed information to the public about a problem with a city or a town, the Mississippi Whistleblower Attorneys at Barrett Law PLLC are here to help you.  We understand the complexities of the whistleblower lawsuit process, and we will help you pursue a just result.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Talk About ATV Accidents

Saturday, August 6th, 2016

A woman recently died when the ATV that she was riding got hit by a train. A man was driving the ATV, and the woman was riding with him. The train struck the ATV while the man was trying to free the ATV’s tire from the rail because it was stuck. This horrific accident illustrates some of the dangers that associated with ATV use.

Many people use ATVs for recreation and work. ATVs are both fun and useful, and they can be safe when riders use them properly, use good judgment, and wear a helmet every single time they ride. As is the case with any vehicle, ATV accidents do happen. An ATV accident can leave the victims with serious injuries, or the accident could even be fatal. Victims of ATV crashes and the families of people who died in ATV wrecks may be able to be compensated for their injuries or losses. Filing claim for compensation after an ATV accident could help you and your family pay for medical bills, funeral expenses, and other expenses associated with the accident.

ATV accidents can result in some different types of injuries. Some newer ATVs have seatbelts, but many others do not. Because of this, ejection from the ATV is a common occurrence in ATV accidents. Ejection often causes head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, especially in situations where riders are not wearing helmets. It can even cause immediate death. ATV accident victims can also suffer facial injuries, back injuries, broken bones, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, and paralysis, among other things. Unfortunately, fatalities are relatively common in ATV accidents.

There are many causes of ATV accidents. Some ATV accidents are caused by young or inexperienced riders. Other accidents happen when a rider is operating the ATV in an unsafe manner or riding too fast. Sometimes, ATV operators consume alcohol, which impairs their ability to operate the ATV safely. Alcohol slows a rider’s reaction time and impairs their judgment, so it is not surprising that alcohol use is a factor in many serious and fatal ATV accidents. Other causes of ATV accidents include mechanical malfunction of the ATV or parts and accidents caused by rough terrain or obstacles in the path of the ATV.

Barrett Law PLLC:  Supporting Mississippi Accident Victims One Case at a Time

ATV accidents can be severe, and they are often deadly. If you were hurt or someone that you love died in an ATV accident, know that one or more parties may be responsible for your injuries or your loss. The ATV owner might be responsible for some or all of the damage or loss if they engaged in negligent conduct such as letting an inexperienced rider operate the ATV or failing to keep the ATV in good repair. The person who was operating the ATV might be fully or partially responsible for injuries and damages caused by the crash. Other potentially responsible parties are the property owner, the ATV manufacturer, and companies who manufactured parts used to repair and maintain the ATV.

Mississippi Whistleblower Attorneys Talk about Threats to Severance

Monday, August 1st, 2016

In a first-of-its-kind decision, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) challenged the validity of a severance agreement clause that companies have used to prevent employees from collecting severance pay in situations where the employees notified Federal agencies of rule violations at their former employers’ firms as the employees were leaving those businesses. As the result of that decision, Atlanta building supply company BlueLinx Holdings will pay a fine for attempting to prevent departing employees from blowing the whistle on violations as they departed from employment with the enterprise.

In 2013, BlueLinx started requiring workers who were leaving the company to sign severance agreements in which they promised to waive their rights to any awards that they might win if they were to bring a federal whistleblower case and prevail. Theoretically, the employees who signed the agreements were still free to report violations, but the forfeiture of any award that would come from a victory against the company would discourage employees from reporting. Employees did not have a meaningful choice about whether or not to sign the agreements because any employee who did not sign it would not receive severance pay or other benefits.

The SEC ruled that since the severance agreement requirement was designed to prevent former employees from blowing the whistle on their former employers, it was not valid because it violates the purpose of the SEC whistleblower program. The case involving BlueLinx does not involve any would-be whistleblowers but is instead based solely upon the existence of the severance agreement policy. The company claims that it never intended to discourage whistleblower lawsuits, but the existence of the severance agreement policy would certainly deter such suits regardless of the intent behind the policy’s existence.

To make the situation right, BlueLinx will pay a penalty of $265,00.00 and, perhaps even more importantly, discontinue use of the old severance agreement. A new severance agreement has been adopted that contains language that indicates that the former employee may not sue the company but that they may file whistleblower complaints with government agencies.

Reddy said the company has since re-tooled language in the severance agreement to make clear that employees agree not to sue the company, not foregoing compensation that may flow from whistleblower complaints to government agencies. What’s more, former employees who signed the old severance agreements within the past five years will not have to forfeit any awards that may come to them if they disclose possible violations to the SEC.
