West Side Crash Kills Man

Posted on February 15th, 2013 No Comments

A driver was instantly killed after a car rear ended his vehicle on West Side Highway, Sunday officials said.

The unidentified driver was reportedly moving slowly when a car driven by a uniformed off-duty deputy of Bexar County Sheriff’s Office slammed into the back of his car, San Antonio police reported. Officer Michael Moore said the off-duty deputy was surprised when the slow moving vehicle apparently swerved in front of his car. The two vehicles then slammed to a concrete barrier, pinned the other driver inside his car as a result of the impact. The pinned driver was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation by military personnel who happened to be also on the scene, but could not be revived. Two other passengers of the rear ended car were rushed to the hospital for minor injuries.

The off-duty deputy himself was reportedly uninjured and is unlikely to face criminal charges.

Losing a loved one, particularly in an unexpected accident, is difficult. Our attorneys at the Chris Mayo Law Firm send their thoughts and condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of the driver killed in this accident.

Death of former Altanta Falcon player may change course of NFL concussion lawsuits

Posted on April 26th, 2012 No Comments

The death of former NFL star, Ray Easterling, last week may change the course of the NFL concussion lawsuit from a personal injury case to a wrongful death case.

Easterling was found dead in his home after suffering, from what police believe, a gunshot wound that was self-inflicted.

A Philadelphia”In the last six months, I guess, I could tell he was not on his game. He kept repeating himself and getting confused. It’s pretty tough, pretty tough.” Nearly 61 lawsuits have been filed which state that the NFL was negligent in treating concussions, which lead NFL players to suffer from long-term head injuries as a result.

Automated defibrillators may save fewer lives

Posted on December 1st, 2011 No Comments

Ten years ago, based on a recommendation by the American Heart Association, hospitals across the country purchased millions of dollars worth of automated defibrillators made to help save lives in the event of a patient going into cardiac arrest.

New research, however, has shown that this equipment may have been a mistake, and that the older, low-tech defibrillators in fact save more lives.  Committee members of the American Heart Association endorsed the new products because they were designed so lesser-skilled hospital employees could operate them.

Chair of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, Dr. Steven Nissen, stated, “Why would we want to dumb things down to a level of having a machine do the thinking for us?”

Staple Center Named in Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Posted on June 3rd, 2011 No Comments

Los Angeles’ Staples Center has been named in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a toddler who fell to his death from a skybox during a Lakers game last year.

According to Los Angeles Superior Court documents, the family of 2 year-old Lucas Tang claims Anschutz Entertainment Group and L.A. Arena Co. did not warn fans about the “dangerous” design of the luxury boxes in the Staples Center. The Tang family is seeking an unspecified amount of damages and an injunction that would require taller barriers in front of the luxury boxes.

According to the lawsuit, Tang fell between 30 and 50 feet from a third-level luxury box just minutes after the conclusion of the Lakers’ game against Golden State on November 20. Tang suffered massive head injuries and died at a hospital later that night.

The lawsuit claims that “in order to obtain the highest price possible for use of the luxury boxes, the Staples Center designed and maintains the luxury boxes in a dangerous condition.”

Attorney for the Tang family, Scott Wellman, said that “beyond providing some measure of compensation to the grieving family,” the purpose of the wrongful death lawsuit is to “compel Staples Center to prevent similar accidents from happening again, even if installing basic safety features reduces the maximum price it can charge for tickets.”
