Do I Need a Lawyer? Signs of Child Sex Abuse at School

Thursday, July 1, 2021

Child sexual abuse is a serious crime that can have devastating and lifelong consequences for the victim, and it is on the rise in many education settings. Data cited recently by The Washington Post shows that reports of sexual assault at elementary schools and middle and high schools increased more than 50 percent between the years 2015 and 2018, the most recent year for data.

These reports of sexual assault rose from 9,600 in the 2015-2016 school year to nearly 15,000 in the 2017-2018 school year.

No child should have to go to school in an unsafe environment where this kind of abuse is a danger. Therefore, it is important for parents, teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, and other adults to know how to spot the signs of child sex abuse so they can, if necessary, intervene.

The CDC recognizes child sexual abuse as a public health problem, classifying it as an “adverse childhood experience (ACE) that “can affect how a person thinks, acts, and feels over a lifetime, resulting in short- and long-term physical and mental/emotional health consequences.” For example, RAINN notes that victims of child sexual abuse are roughly four times more likely to develop symptoms of drug abuse and to experience PTSD or major depressive episodes as adults.

The bottom line is that a child cannot consent to any form of sexual activity, and any adult engaging in such behavior with a minor, including teachers, coaches, and other school staff, is committing a crime.

Signs of child sexual abuse may be physical, emotional, behavioral, or a combination of all three. While it is not always easy to spot a case of child sexual abuse, some common signs include:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases or infections
  • Physical trauma in the genital area
  • Not wanting to be left alone with certain people
  • Not wanting to change clothing or bathe
  • Regressive behaviors such as thumbsucking or bedwetting
  • Sexual behavior that is inappropriate for the child’s age
  • Decrease in confidence or self-image
  • Excessive talk about sexual topics
  • Talk about a new adult “friend”
  • Mood swings (e.g., increased aggression)
  • Self-harming behavior
  • Changes in appetite
  • Excessive worry or fearfulness

These are only a handful of signs to look for if you suspect a child is the victim of sex abuse. It is highly important to note any sudden changes in behavior from the child and to report suspicious cases and situations. 

If you suspect your child has been the victim of sex abuse while at school or in the care of educators, you are not alone.

What Are Coup and Contrecoup Brain Injuries?

Tuesday, June 29, 2021

The brain is responsible for controlling our body’s most important functions, from memory and concentration to movement and speech. If you sustain any injury to the brain, you can sustain severe, long-term damage and permanent disability. Some of the most serious brain injuries are coup and contrecoup injuries, which occur when the brain hits the side of the skull. Without prompt treatment, a coup or contrecoup brain injury can be life-threatening. If you or your loved one was injured, a Bakersfield brain injury lawyer can help.

Symptoms of a Coup and Contrecoup Brain Injury

A coup brain injury occurs when your brain collides into one side of your skull, while a coup-contrecoup brain injury occurs both at the site of the initial trauma and on the opposite side of the skull. During a coup-contrecoup injury, the brain hits one side of the skull, slides to the other side, and sustains trauma on the opposite side of the initial trauma.

These injuries can be severe and result in painful symptoms, including the following.

  • Headaches
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Light or noise sensitivity
  • Coma

If you believe that you sustained a brain injury, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Without treatment, you can sustain permanent and life-threatening damage to the neurons, blood vessels, and other structures in the brain.

Legal Options After a Coup or Contrecoup Brain Injury

A brain injury can occur due to many acts, including motor vehicle collisions, falls from high places, and acts of violence. If you sustain a coup or contrecoup brain injury due to another person’s negligence, however, you may be eligible for financial compensation. You could file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the at-fault party.

To establish your right to this compensation, you will need to prove that the at-fault party was responsible for your injury and committed an act of negligence. In a personal injury lawsuit, you will need to provide sufficient evidence to prove the following four elements.

  • The at-fault party owed you a duty of care. For example, drivers have a duty to follow traffic laws and drive safely.
  • The at-fault party breached his or her duty of care. For example, a driver who runs a red light or drives while drunk breaches his or her duty.
  • The at-fault party’s breach of duty caused the accident and your coup or contrecoup brain injury.
  • You sustained damages that you can recover in the lawsuit.

You can use many pieces of evidence to prove your right to compensation, such as medical records, surveillance footage, witness testimony, and police reports.

What to Do If You Experience a Coup or Contrecoup Brain Injury

If you experience a coup or contrecoup brain injury, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Not only can emergency care help reduce the risk of life-threatening complications, but your medical records will be valuable for your future claim. Save all records related to your treatment and injuries.

Once you receive medical attention, contact a Bakersfield brain injury attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer can evaluate your case and determine whether or not you are eligible for a personal injury lawsuit. If you have grounds for a claim, your attorney will initiate your first steps toward compensation. Contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.

Critical Evidence After a Truck Accident

Monday, June 28, 2021

Truck accidents are physically and emotionally devastating events for those involved. Because of their size, commercial trucking vehicles tend to cause more destruction than a regular car would, so the risk of serious injury or even death goes up in a truck accident. In 2018, the most recent year for data, 5,096 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes according to the Federal Motor Safety Carrier Administration

Even when truck accidents do not cause fatalities, they can cause serious injuries with life-long consequences, not to mention damage to private property and mental pain and suffering.

If you are injured in a truck accident and plan on making a claim for damages, you will need to be able to prove the truck driver or another third party, such as the trucking company, was negligent. From there, you will have to show that this negligence directly caused the accident and your injury.

The best way to do that is to have ample evidence. Here are some pieces you need to be sure of collecting in the aftermath of an accident with a truck. 

Accident reports. Police create an official report of the accident when they arrive on the scene. Get and keep a copy of this report for your own records. The trucking company will usually send a certified truck inspector who will examine the vehicle before it gets removed from the scene. This person will check for things like a manufacturing defect, low tread on the tires, or other potential factors in the accident related to the truck itself. Obtain a copy of their report as well.

Electronic logs. Federal law requires all truck drivers to follow Hours of Service regulations. These rules stipulate how long they are allowed to drive and when they must take breaks. Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) automatically record this information and transmit it to the carrier. The point of these logs is to precisely record whether a trucker is keeping to their Hours of Service regulations or not. If they are not and cause an accident, these logs will be essential to your case.

Photos and witness statements. Take pictures at the scene of the accident: your vehicle, the truck, close-ups of the damage, tire or skid marks on the road, and any other visuals that could be relevant. It is also important to document cuts, burns, and other injuries. At the same time, have nearby witnesses give statements via video or written testimonials.

Evidence requested in a spoliation letter. Your attorney may send a spoliation letter. This document requests that all evidence related to the accident be preserved. That includes truck inspection reports, the truck driver’s qualifications and driving records, dispatch instructions, weigh station and loading dock reports, and the aforementioned driving logs. 

Any of this evidence will be easier to get with the help of an experienced truck accident attorney. At Rodriguez & Associates, our Bakersfield personal injury lawyers can assist you in navigating this complex area of personal injury litigation as you seek compensation for damages. Please reach out to us today to discuss your case and receive support by filling out our online form or calling (661) 323-1400.

What Are Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Saturday, May 15, 2021

Motorcyclists face many dangers on California roads. Any accident between a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle can result in devastating injuries with long-term complications. While safe driving practices can help motorcyclists avoid preventable collisions, these accidents can occur for several reasons, including poor weather, dangerous road conditions, and negligent driver behavior.

Unsafe Lane Changes

One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents involve unsafe lane changes. When a driver intends to merge into another lane, he or she must ensure that the roadway is clear before moving over. Unfortunately, a driver may rely on his or her mirrors to ensure the road is clear or fail to check the lane at all. A motorcyclist may be traveling in the driver’s blind spot when he or she is merging, leading to a serious collision.

Car Doors

A parked car can pose an unexpected risk to motorcyclists. In some cases, a driver may open his or her car door into the path of an oncoming motorcycle. The motorcyclist will then collide into the door, leading to very severe, often life-threatening injuries.

Driving Under the Influence

Alcohol and drugs impair many of the essential functions for driving. A driver may experience diminished concentration, motor skills, and judgement. He or she may be unable to focus on the road or react to unexpected situations on the road. As a result, the driver could easily lose control of his or her vehicle, run a red light, or commit another act of negligence that leads to a collision.

Speeding

Driving over the speed limit increases a vehicle’s risk of collision. If a driver is going too fast, he or she does not have enough time to react to a collision if he or she encounters a hazard on the road. Additionally, the faster that a vehicle is traveling, the greater the impact will be. A motorcyclist can sustain very serious injuries in a high-speed crash.

Motorcycle Part Defects

In some cases, driver negligence may not be responsible for a motorcycle collision at all. A defective motorcycle part, such as an improperly manufactured engine or poorly designed brakes, can cause an accident. A motorcyclist may lose control of his or her bike when an unexpected failure occurs, leading to severe injuries. In these situations, the motorcyclist could file a claim against the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of the defective part.

Dangerous Left-Hand Turns

Many motorcycle collisions occur when a driver makes an unsafe left-hand turn. The driver may run a red light or fail to yield the right of way, colliding with a motorcyclist as he or she travels through an intersection. The driver may attempt to overtake or pass the motorcycle in an unsafe manner, leading to a serious accident. Motorcycles are much smaller than passenger cars, making them more difficult to see and more vulnerable to these left-hand turn collisions.

Poor Road Conditions

Other accidents may involve dangerous conditions on the road itself, such as potholes, cracks, or poorly designed streets. If a motorcyclist encounters these road hazards, he or she can sustain a serious accident without another driver being involved. In these situations, the motorcyclist could file a lawsuit against the government agency responsible for maintaining the road.

If you are in a motorcycle accident, it is important to speak to a California motorcycle accident lawyer. An attorney can represent you in your claim against the government, product manufacturer, or negligent driver. Contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your accident and optimal path to recovery.

What Is a Hematoma and What Causes It?

Friday, April 30, 2021

Our brains serve as the command system for our bodies. Any damage to this vital organ can lead to long-term complications, including memory loss, chronic pain, seizures, and difficulty speaking or writing. Unfortunately, thousands of people suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) each year.

There are many types of TBI, which range in severity from mild damage to severe, life-threatening conditions. One type of serious brain injury is an intracranial hematoma, or bleeding in the brain.

What Is Intracranial Hematoma?

The term hematoma refers to a collection of blood outside of a blood vessel. Hematomas can occur in many locations, including under the nail bed, in the ear, and in the liver. Some of the most serious forms of hematoma occur in the brain.

Intracranial hematoma is a condition where blood collects inside of the skull. This condition occurs when a blood vessel inside of the brain ruptures or when a patient sustains a head injury during an accident. Symptoms of intracranial hematoma include the following.

  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of movement
  • Unequal pupil size
  • Confusion and dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Drowsiness
  • Vomiting
  • Worsening headache

If you believe you have an intracranial hematoma, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Without prompt treatment, this condition can lead to permanent brain damage, coma, or death.

Common Causes of Intracranial Hematoma

You can develop a hematoma in the brain for several reasons. Aneurysms, poorly developed arteries or veins, high blood pressure, and tumors can all contribute to this condition. However, hematoma often develops after you suffer a head injury in an accident. In many cases, someone else’s negligent actions cause brain injuries.

Car accidents often contribute to hematoma. You may hit your head or have an object penetrate your skull during a forceful collision, leading to bleeding in the brain and long-term brain damage. Any accident that results in a head injury can cause a hematoma, including slip and falls on someone else’s property and dangerous conditions on construction sites, such as falling debris.

The Long-Term Cost of Hematoma

Intracranial hematoma can be expensive to treat and painful to live with. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the lifetime economic cost of a severe brain injury could be as high as $76.5 billion.

Brain injuries often require thousands of dollars in medical care, long-term treatment and disability accommodations, and specialized therapy. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may be unable to work for a period of time or unable to return to your job at all.

The emotional and physical impact of hematoma can also be difficult, especially if you developed permanent complications or lost a loved one to a hematoma. If someone you loved died from a hematoma, you will also need to account for funeral and burial expenses, lost income and benefits, and the loss of his or her support, care, companionship, and love.

Legal Options for Hematoma Victims

If someone else’s actions caused you or a loved one to develop an intracranial hematoma, you may have grounds for a lawsuit or insurance claim. However, you will need to prove that the at-fault party caused the accident and the subsequent hematoma to occur. This involves collecting evidence, speaking to witnesses, and negotiating with insurance companies or defense attorneys.

In these situations, you need a California brain injury lawyer on your side. A brain injury attorney has the skills and resources you need to hold the at-fault party accountable. As soon as you receive medical attention for your hematoma, contact a California personal injury lawyer to discuss your optimal path to recovery.

The Long-Term Costs of an Accident-Related Amputation

Saturday, April 10, 2021

Amputations are serious catastrophic injuries. There are several reasons why you may need an amputation; in some cases, medical conditions require surgeons to remove a compromised limb. In others, a dangerous accident is responsible for the loss of a limb. These injuries can have serious long-term complications—taking a financial, emotional, and physical toll on you and your family.

Costs and Recovery for Amputation

Amputation often requires lifelong care. According to a 2007 report from the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, the estimated lifetime cost for amputation was $509,272. These costs have likely risen due to inflation and increasingly expensive medical care. Amputations require specialized treatment and equipment, including the following.

  • Immediate medical bills, such as surgery costs, hospital stays, and medication
  • Future medical expenses for ongoing rehabilitation and prescriptions
  • The cost of physical and psychiatric therapy
  • Prosthetics and other mobility equipment, such as wheelchairs
  • Accommodations to your home and vehicle

In addition to medical costs, an amputation can prevent you from returning to work for a period of time, leading to lost wages. In some cases, you may be unable to return to work at all, losing future income and benefits such as health insurance.

The Emotional and Physical Toll of Amputation

Amputation not only has an impact on your finances—your mental and physical health can also suffer due to the loss of a limb. The emotional trauma associated with the loss of a limb can lead to significant distress and anguish. In some cases, you may develop mental health conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression.

Your family may also suffer from the loss of care, companionship, services, consortium, or comfort. After an amputation, you may also experience physical discomfort and struggle to adjust to your new lifestyle. Amputation affects several aspects of your daily life, often leading to a diminished quality of life.

Legal Options for Amputation Victims

If you needed an amputation after an accident, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Through this claim, you can recover compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and other costs associated with the amputation. However, you will need to prove that someone else’s negligence is responsible for the amputation.

For example, if you are in a car accident with a drunk driver and lose a limb, you would have not sustained the injury if not for his or her actions. As a result, you could file a lawsuit or insurance claim against the at-fault driver. Accidents involving workplace negligence, dangerous property conditions, and medical malpractice may also qualify for a personal injury claim.

In these situations, you need a California amputation attorney on your side. Hiring a lawyer can provide significant benefits to your case, including the following.

  • The ability to calculate the full extent of your amputation-related damages
  • Access to expert witnesses who can validate your claim and help you determine your long-term care needs
  • Knowledge of personal injury law and the processes required to file a claim
  • The ability to handle all aspects of your case so you can focus on recovery
  • The ability to craft a compelling case for your right to compensation
  • The ability to negotiate with insurance companies and argue for a higher settlement on your behalf

As soon as possible after your accident, contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your case. At your consultation, your lawyer will evaluate the available evidence and explain your optimal path to recovery.

Who Is Liable for a Civilian’s Injury on a Construction Site?

Saturday, March 20, 2021

Construction sites can be very dangerous places. Civilians who visit these locations can encounter falling debris, heavy machinery, and many other unsafe situations. Although safety equipment and regulations are in place to prevent accidents, negligence on behalf of a site owner, subcontractor, or employee could lead to serious injuries. If a civilian suffers an injury on a construction site, he or she may be able to pursue legal action against the at-fault parties.

Common Causes of Construction Injuries

There are numerous accidents that can happen on a construction site. To prevent these incidents from happening, contractors, foremen, and employees must follow established safety protocols. They must ensure that all visitors to the site wear proper safety equipment and follow best safety practices to avoid injuries. They must also place barricades around the site to keep passersby at a safe distance.

Unfortunately, not all construction sites follow these safety precautions. Civilians can suffer accidents due to a wide range of dangerous conditions, including the following.

  • Falling debris and objects
  • Tripping over equipment and materials
  • Improperly marked holes and ditches
  • Defective and dangerous machinery
  • The presence of hazardous materials
  • Improper use of construction tools and equipment

Legal Options for Civilians Injured on Construction Sites

If someone else’s negligence caused an accident on the construction site, he or she may be liable for the victim’s damages. For example, if a civilian is walking by the construction site and the employees failed to place barricades around the site, he or she may be struck by falling debris. In this situation, he or she may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the company that oversees the site.

Many parties may be liable for a civilian’s injuries, depending on the circumstances surrounding his or her accident. Subcontractors, employees, foremen, and the construction company itself may be liable. In other cases, the developer or the landowner may be liable. In cases involving defective equipment or machinery, the civilian can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective item. To identify the relevant at-fault party or parties, civilians can enlist the help of a construction accident attorney who can conduct an in-depth investigation into the accident.

How to Prove Negligence in a Construction Accident Lawsuit

A construction accident lawsuit allows civilians to recover compensation for the economic and non-economic losses he or she sustained due to the at-fault party’s negligence. To secure this compensation, the civilian will need to supply evidence to prove four key facts.

  • The at-fault party owed a duty of care to keep the construction site safe.
  • The at-fault party breached the duty of care through a negligent act or omission.
  • The at-fault party’s breach of duty directly caused the civilian’s injuries.
  • The civilian suffered damages that he or she can collect in the lawsuit.

For example, say that a visitor to a construction site falls in a hole that an employee failed to properly mark. Companies are often liable for the actions of their employees while these employees are performing their job duties, so the visitor would likely bring a lawsuit against the construction company. The breach of duty would be the employee’s failure to properly mark the hole.

The civilian can use multiple pieces of evidence to prove causation and breach of duty, including surveillance footage, medical records, and witness testimony. However, proving a construction accident lawsuit can be a challenge without the resources and knowledge of a personal injury lawyer. If you sustain an accident on a construction site, contact a California construction accident lawyer to discuss your pathway to maximum compensation.

What Is the Difference Between Actual and Proximate Cause?

Friday, February 26, 2021

When you suffer injuries due to another person’s negligence, you can recover economic and non-economic damages from the at-fault party through a personal injury lawsuit. To prove your right to compensation, you will need to prove that the defendant violated his or her duty of care to you. You will also need to prove that this violation was the actual and proximate cause of your injuries.

Understanding the difference between actual and proximate cause is very important for a personal injury claim. While actual cause is relatively straightforward, establishing proximate cause can be more complex.

Actual Cause versus Proximate Cause

Actual cause, also known as cause in fact, refers to the actual cause of your accident. For example, if you are driving through an intersection and an oncoming commercial truck runs a red light, the truck driver’s actions are the actual cause of the collision.

Proximate cause refers to the legal cause, or the cause that the law recognizes as the primary cause of the accident. In your case, the proximate cause may not be the first event that contributed to your injuries. It may not be the last event that occurs before the accident either.

Instead, the proximate cause is the natural and direct cause of your injuries, and your injuries are a natural, direct, and foreseeable consequence of the proximate cause. In other words, if the proximate cause had not occurred, you would have not suffered injuries.

The Substantial Factor Test for Proximate Cause

When determining whether or not a defendant’s actions are the proximate cause of an accident, California courts perform the substantial factor test. The court must determine whether the at-fault party’s conduct was a substantial and relevant contributory factor in the accident.

For example, say that you are driving on a highway when you notice a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road. In order to avoid a head-on collision, you swerve to the side and accidentally strike the highway’s guardrail. Since you would have not swerved but for the other driver’s actions—in this case, driving on the wrong side of the road—you can establish that the defendant’s actions played a substantial part in causing the accident. Using this information, you can establish the proximate cause.

The defendant’s conduct is not a substantial factor if the accident would have occurred regardless of his or her actions. You also cannot use conduct that is trivial or far removed from the actual events of the accident.

For example, say that you are in a head-on collision while driving to work. The city has closed your usual route for construction, so you have to take a detour. When driving on the unfamiliar road, you collide into a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction.

While you would have a claim against the other driver, you cannot hold the city liable for closing your usual route. While you would not have been in the accident if not for the construction, it is too remote, or too far removed, from the actual accident to be a substantial factor. For more information, contact a Bakersfield personal injury attorney today.

If you are in an accident, proving actual and proximate cause can be difficult without legal representation. A California personal injury lawyer will understand these statutory rules and will use his or her experience to craft a compelling case in your favor. After seeking medical attention, contact an injury lawyer to discuss your claim.

Blaine Mustoe: Personal Injury Lawyer Spotlight

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Blaine MustoePersonal injury attorney Blaine Mustoe’s path to personal injury law stemmed from a personal experience. Some of his family members were victims of a terrible incident right before he started law school. While he thought the responsible party would stand up and try to make it right, they did not, and instead acted indifferently towards the damage they had done. Witnessing this injustice – one dealt directly to people he cared about – made him realize that holding wrongdoers accountable and helping the victims put their lives back together is what he wanted to do.

“My favorite part of being a lawyer is helping regular people stand up for themselves to powerful companies and organizations.”

Blaine, like several of our attorneys, was born and raised in Kern County. He came back after law school to work at Rodriguez & Associates so that he could help the community that surrounded him when he was growing up. Blaine graduated from Arvin High School, also the alma mater of Daniel Rodriguez, Senior Partner and Founder of Rodriguez & Associates. Ironically, or maybe it was kismet, Blaine met Daniel Rodriguez in high school when Blaine was part of the We the People program, a high school academic competition in which students are tested on their knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and American Government. Mr. Rodriguez had volunteered an afternoon to teach the students public speaking skills and Blaine was part of that group.

Blaine is a first-generation member of his family to attend college. He worked multiple jobs to pay his way through school while also staying active in intramural sports and political clubs on campus and earned a degree in Political Science from UC Berkeley. Blaine attended UC Davis School of Law where he took part in mock trial exercises and volunteered in outreach programs with local schools. During his last summer of law school, Blaine worked at Rodriguez & Associates and was impressed with the firm’s commitment and ability to champion local residents against powerful corporations and entities. Impressively, Blaine passed the California Bar Exam on his first try and when the partners of Rodriguez & Associates recruited him, he jumped at the chance to return home and work in the line of personal injury law, which he had been interested in from the beginning of law school.

At Rodriguez & Associates, Blaine has worked on a variety of cases including catastrophic car collisions, civil rights violations by law enforcement, and defective products.

In his spare time, Blaine volunteers as a judge and coach for We the People, the same program he was involved in at Arvin High School. He loves to be able to give back to the program that he enjoyed so much. He also likes reading novels and non-fiction, running, trying new recipes, and rooting for the Golden State Warriors.
