Bird Box Challenge Taken…While Driving!

There’s a show on Netflix called Bird Box where people walk around blindfolded in order to avoid encountering an evil force that’s all around us, or something.

Well, leave it to a 17-year-old kid in Utah to be the first person, that we know of, to take the bird box challenge while driving.  That’s right the teenager got behind the wheel of car and started driving while blindfolded.  And guess what happened.  It’s not good, that I can tell you.

Not only is this ridiculously stupid but there’s a good chance the kid’s insurance company is going to deny coverage for the ensuing accident because driving blindfolded is not negligence…it’s a very dumb intentional act.  Much like, BTW, drinking and driving, which also raises insurance coverage issues when those accidents eventually happen too.

So today’s lesson is an easy one: don’t drive blindfolded!

29,000 Pounds of Jimmy Dean Sausages Recalled

29,000 pounds of Jimmy Dean breakfast sausages have been recalled because customers have been finding pieces of metal inside their sausage links.  We all need a little iron in our diets, but not this way.

This kind of stuff happens, it’s real, and I get calls all the time from people in the emergency room sometimes suffering from serious consequences after having eaten some foreign substance in their food.

The most important thing in any product’s liability case like this is to preserve the product so it can be sent off to a lab or an expert who can test it and confirm what went wrong.

The second most important thing is to call me.  I love product liability cases.

Hampton Inn Being Sued by Woman Who Claims She Was Secretly Filmed

Hampton Inn, which is owned by Hilton Hotels, is being sued by a woman who claims a hotel employee secretly filmed her while she was in her room with a hidden camera.  Similar thing happened to sportscaster Erin Andrews a while back and last year a jury awarded her $55 million in damages.

Apparently the hidden camera was there for a while, so anyone who’s recently stayed at the Hampton Inn in Albany, NY should run a few internet searches on themselves.

The fact that it was a hotel employee that did this does not bode well for Hampton Inn.  This is a story that has legs, and I can see hundreds of millions of dollars being paid out to victims.

Not your typical personal injury case, but these people have certainly been wronged, and I could help make it right.

Tesla Inc. Just Can’t Stay Out of The News

Elon Musk’s Tesla company just can’t stay out of the news.

This week a Tesla employee admitted to sabotage against the company, which include altering code to some important programs.

Also, hackers have figured out ways to trick the autopilot feature on Tesla’s driverless cars, and now the feds are getting involved.

And another Tesla electric car spontaneously blew up, this one belonging to a hollywood actress. 

We’re living in a brave new world with all this technology and artificial intelligence attempting to run our lives. In the meantime these for-profit companies are going to be held accountable by personal injury lawsuits when people get hurt – and that’s a good thing.

Just remember, when you’ve been wronged, I’m here to make it right.

Dancing FBI Agent Arrested

The dancing FBI agent who’s gun accidentally went off in da club after he did a back flip has been arrested and charged with 2nd degree assault.

The gun shot hit another patron in the leg and he was hospitalized but is expected to survive, thanks to another patron applying a tourniquet, because they’re saying he would have otherwise bled out and died.

So here’s an another example of a case that has both criminal consequences as well as civil personal injury consequences.

And if toxicology repots show that our Michael Jackson wannabe was intoxicated at the time, well then let’s just say his dancing days are definitely over.
