When Accidents Happen

Accidents that happen to and around us, are most probably due to our own fault yet many accidents that happen these days are due to the negligence of another party.

Just a few weeks ago, an 11-year old child died after he was electrocuted when he accidentally fell and his legs touched an exposed lamp pole at the playground. I don't know whether the parents will be suing the local municipal council for it. It's not in our culture to do that, as it wouldn't bring their darling son back, but someone must pay and learn from it and give something back to the victim's parents. It's just not right. Compensation in any form must be given.

In Malaysia, you don't hear many stories of people suing others that caused them harm even in the slightest. In the U.S. however, you can practically sue people for anything.



In the case of the Depuy lawsuit, a large number of people experienced pain and swelling so severe that a second hip replacement surgery became necessary after getting hip implants by DePuy Orthopedics (a company owned by Johnson & Johnson).

So if you're located in the U.S. and are one of those people suffering from such incidences, and looking for lawyers to represent you in personal injury, the lawyers at O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath are the answer to your prayers. They will be your own Erin Brokovich.

Whatever the case, accidents are what they are. They're unintentional. Yet, when things like this happen, there should be someone who takes responsibility for it. Come to think of it, if I were living in the U.S. with my family, my daughter Allie would probably sue me for causing her to fall and injure her chin. :[
