By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

You were the one in an accident. You know, and your lawyer confirmed, that the other side did something wrong to cause your accident. So why is the other side blaming you? What on earth could you have done wrong, to cause your own accident? It may seem at first ridiculous that you, an… Read More »

Understanding Wrongful Birth Claims

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

Difficulties in Pedestrian Accident Cases

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

No legal case is actually “easy.” But if there’s one type of case that the general public misperceives as easy, it is cases where a car hits a pedestrian. While, seemingly, a car should never hit a person, and thus, the case should be one that is simple to win, there are actually a… Read More »

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

In an ideal world, no medical malpractice should ever happen. But it does, and when it does, it can be catastrophic and traumatizing. But there is actually a category of medical malpractice that is so bad, so unacceptable, that these events are called “never events,” for the idea that there is no scenario when… Read More »

Things You Can Do to Help Win (or Better Your Chances of Winning) Your Case

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

Can you win your case, by yourself? Probably not; a good personal injury attorney knows how to get the best settlement, or win your case at trial, and you alone, without an attorney, are no match for the other side, which likely will have a team of lawyers at their side. But that doesn’t… Read More »

Product Labels and the Failure to Warn

By Fox, Farley, Willis & Burnette |

It seems that almost every product we bring into our home has some kind of label on it. The language on the label is written in almost illegibly small type, and some of the instructions are seemingly so obvious, it may discourage people from even reading them. But knowing how to use any kind… Read More »
