Washington Woman Files Dog Bite Lawsuit Against Campground Owners

Posted on August 11th, 2011 No Comments

A woman in Washington has filed a dog bite lawsuit against the owners of a West Virginia campground.

According to U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia documents, Jessica Barker filed the dog bite lawsuit against the owners of a Bruceton Mills, W.V. campground. The lawsuit names Christopher Ogden, Rebecca Ogden, Alyeska Inc., Big Bear Lake Country Store, Big Bear Lake Real Estate, Big Bear Lake Property Owners Association Inc., and Bear Foot springs as defendants.

According to the lawsuit, the Ogdens owned, leased and/or rented a site at the campground. Barker says the family owned a “vicious and dangerous dog.” The lawsuit claims the defendants knew that the dog was violent and that it had previously attacked and bitten, or attempted to attack and bite, other individuals at the campground.

“The dog was known by all Defendants to be aggressive and a danger to Plaintiff and the public,” the lawsuit alleges.

Barker was a guest at the campground on May 21, 2010 when she was attacked and severely bitten by the Ogdens’ dog, the lawsuit says. As a result of the attack, Barker claims she suffered severe permanent injuries, tissue loss to her right forearm, puncture wounds to her left calf, and severe emotional distress. She is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.

Austin accident victims sue hospitals over liens

Posted on April 1st, 2011 No Comments

It is common for hospitals to file liens against patients as a way to ensure they are paid, even by the 25 percent of people without health insurance in Texas.  However, more and more hospitals in Texas seem to be abusing liens by overcharging high numbers of accident victims.  For example, UMC Brackenridge in Austin has filed more liens than any other hospital in Central Texas with 18,300 filed since 1999.

In addition, a spokesperson from the Seton Family of Hospitals told reporters that the only times the hospital does not automatically file a lien is when a patient’s hospital bill is less than $5,000.  One attorney said in reference to the liens, “The hospital has this lien statute, and they’ve got all the power.  You have no ability to negotiate until you file suit and go to court.”

In one case, an Austin woman, Jean Bogardus, was the victim of a pedestrian accident after being run over by a car in a parking lot in 2007.  Bogardus’s leg was broken in three place and she spent two days at UMC Brackenridge after doctors performed surgery on her leg.  The hospital charged her $31,115 and, rather than billing her medical insurance, the first thing officials did was file a lien for payment.

22-year-old Victor Garza was hit by an SUV as he was walking down the interstate center near Boerne. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. 65-year-old Michael Gilbert drove the Ford Excursion that hit Garza. He and his passenger, 55-year-old Jose Cisneros, were both taken to the hospital and were released after treatment.

According to the Boerne Star, “At the same time deputies were dispatched to the scene of the rollover accident, they were alerted that a man wearing dark clothing had been seen walking in the middle of the highway in that area, Chief Deputy Matt King said.” Gilbert told officers he swerved to avoid hitting Garza and flipped his SUV. The Department of Public Safety Report indicated that, “the driver had taken evasive action,” according to the Boerne Star.
