PERSONAL INJURY LAW for OVER 45 YEARS! We Have Won Over 98% of Our Cases*

If you are involved in a serious injury accident in California, or you have a relative that suffers a wrongful death due to someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury and wrongful death lawyer that you can really trust, not a lawyer from a billboard or radio or television commercial.  This is a common mistake made by  many people who may never have hired a lawyer before and do not know what exactly to look for.

If you are hiring a law firm for your very important personal injury or wrongful death case, see if you can talk to the lawyer who will be representing you and your family. If you cannot talk to the lawyer and only get to speak with a receptionist, or if the lawyer sends an “investigator” to your home or hospital to try to pressure you into signing with them, then you should not hire that law firm.

Make sure you read everything that a law firm sends you when you are considering hiring that law firm. Our firm has an easy and simple to understand one page Retainer Agreement. We try to make everything as easy as possible for our clients in their difficult time.  Some firms have five or ten page retainer agreements, which may not be a bad thing by itself, but it is a bad thing if they are using the multiple pages to sneak in terms that are not beneficial to the client. Many of the firms that advertise heavily do not care as much about having happy clients at the end of the case, so they will sneak things into their agreements to use against the clients. Oftentimes the clients won’t realize those terms are in their agreement until after they have settled.  Do not fall for this. Read the entire contract. If you have a question about anything in our contract, ask us, we will happily explain it to you.

Many People Are Accidentally Poisoned by Roundup and Glyphosates Today

You can be accidentally poisoned by Roundup and glyphosates quite easily, if you are anywhere in the vicinity of where these dangerous chemicals are being administered and used in outdoor applications. Roundup is commonly used as an herbicide to manage weeds in residential and commercial settings. The herbicide Roundup is especially potent, and can be deadly if ingested or exposed to it. You can be “minding your own business” and still be exposed to glyphosates. That is because once it is unleased into the environment, it is highly toxic and can affect you if you are even exposed to it for a short amount of time. Glyphosates are dangerous in all types, and can cause serious reactions to anyone exposed to these hazardous chemicals. Many times, there will be some concern with the exposures to Roundup, in regard to know how to treat the exposed areas or to manage any poison control if the herbicide is accidentally ingested. This concern is because the formulas for glyphosates and surfactants can vary widely by manufacturer and by herbicide, it is difficult to know the exact formula that is used in any one application. Children as well as adults are susceptible to poisoning from Roundup and glyphosate use and applications in the environment.1

People are accidentally poisoned by glyphosate when it gets into their food, on their hands and they touch their mouths or food resources or it is airborne and they inhale it in contaminated environments. Anywhere that there are agricultural and industrial uses of Roundup, as well as in residential home environments where weed killers are used, there is a risk of an accidental poisoning of glyphosate. Technically, whether you are outside or inside, you can still be susceptible to being poisoned by Roundup, if it is stored in an area that you may be near, pass by, or have access to in a storage area. This can apply to an area where the chemicals are stored in a commercial or residential area. That means, if you are working in an office or near a home, you can accidentally be poisoned by someone else using Roundup and glyphosates in that environment. A person can accidentally ingest Roundup in any season, summer and winter included, when there is an improper storage of the chemicals and containers of the herbicide.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Ventral Hernia Mesh Surgical Procedure?

Ventral hernia repairs are usually performed with an open or a laparoscopic surgical procedure. This can shorten the recovery time of the person getting the procedure, to allow the person to get back to the normal scheme of life quickly. Many times, how quickly you get back to normal after a surgery is called your “quality of life.” If you are able to recover quickly after a surgery, then it may stand to reason that your quality of life will remain the same as it was before the surgery.

If you take a long time to recover from a surgery and experience prolonged pain in relation to the surgical procedure, then you may experience a lowered quality of life after your ventral hernia surgery.1 

Are Los Angeles Hernia Meshes Used Equally on Men and Women for Hernia Repair Procedures?

Hernias that occur in the groin area can affect men and women, although it is more common that a hernia affects men. If a woman has an inguinal hernia, the way to diagnosis it is to use an ultrasound. Ultrasonography can help diagnoses a hernia in women, and if there are complications after a hernia repair as well, it can be found using this equipment. The use of magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is also popular to diagnose a hernia, as well as a herniography which uses an injection of contract media into the hernial sac to identify a hernia.1

Does the Type of Hernia Mesh Matter that is Used in a Hernia Repair Surgery?

How Does the Weight of a Hernia Mesh Affect the Patient After the Surgery for an Open Ventral Hernia Repair?

The most common hernia meshes used for an open ventral hernia repair are the medium-weight and heavy-weight mesh, for open retromuscular ventral hernia repair. In order to prevent chronic pain as a complication of a ventral hernia repair, it is common that the heavy-weight permanent synthetic meshes are used to reduce risk of complications after the surgery.2 The heavy-weight hernia mesh has a higher level tensile strength, and can lead to some complications, such as a risk of chronic pain after a hernial repair surgery. But when reviewed against the medium-weight hernia mesh, there were advantages to using the larger weight hernia mesh, including:

Why Does the Implantation of Hernia Mesh to Repair a Hernia Cause Nausea?

Yes, it is possible that the implantation of a hernia mesh to repair a hernia can cause you to experience nausea after the operation. Nausea can turn into a chronic condition for some people, who have a reaction to the hernia mesh, whereby a gallstone-like bezoar formation on the intraluminal hernia mesh causes a small bowel obstruction and chronic abdominal pain and other complications, after a hernia mesh repair surgical procedure2.

Can a Hernia Mesh Cause Migrating Headaches?

Yes, in some cases the hernia mesh implanted to repair your hernia can cause migrating headaches. Oftentimes it can be the case that the hernia mesh chosen to repair your hernia is not getting along well with your system, or that the hernia mesh that was implanted is somehow being rejected by your body at this time.
