By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

The Signs and Severity of Traumatic Brain Injuries

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

Our brains have an interesting contradiction. On the one hand, they are probably our most important organs—the core of who we are as people. On the other hand, when our brains are injured, we may not immediately feel pain. In fact, at first, we may not even recognize anything is wrong at all. And… Read More »

Privileges and Confidentiality: Here’s When and to Whom it Applies

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

You are probably aware of attorney client privilege. This is the doctrine that makes everything that you say or write to your attorney, and everything your attorney says or writes to you, absolutely private, privileged, and confidential.  Nobody can ask you or your attorney what either of you said to or told each other….

Knee Airbags May be a Big Failure

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

When we think of a car’s safety features, we think of airbags. And you may already know that airbags in our cars are everywhere—in way more places than they used to be, many years ago. Side, and passenger airbags are pretty commonplace now. But did you know that there are also airbags lower down—at… Read More »

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

If you are injured in an accident, the injury itself is usually the first priority. But there is another, perhaps more dangerous, secondary condition, that can potentially kill people after an accident: shock.

Improperly Stacked Shelves Can Cause Items to Fall on Victims’ Heads

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

When you go onto store property, and you look out for dangers, it is natural to look down. That is, to look at the ground to see if there are wet spots, objects in the walkways, or anything else that could cause a fall hazard. Many people don’t think to look the other way—upwards…. Read More »

There are Different Ways to get the Evidence That You Need

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

When you start a personal injury case, one thing is certain: In almost every kind of case, at the very start, the Defendant has more evidence about the case than you do. That doesn’t mean you’re going to lose, or that the evidence is bad for your case—it just means that they have the… Read More »
