Civil suit strikes West Sacramento

Posted by on Aug 29, 2017 in Personal Injury | 0 comments

Kentaro Inoue, a professor at The University of California, Davis, met a cruel death last summer after he was dragged 45 feet by a Waste Management garbage truck. Inoue’s lawyer is now filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Waste Management for damages related to the incident. An article in The West Sacramento News Ledger highlighted the details of Inoue’s gruesome experience.

The professor, a 48-year-old man, was commuting to UC Davis on his bicycle from his home in Sacramento on August 31st, 2016. As reported by the West Sacramento police, Inoue was wearing a helmet and riding in a bike lane as he headed westbound on West Capitol Avenue. Craig Michael Tivey, a driver for Waste Management, was driving a large trash truck in the same area. At the time of the accident, Tivey was at a stop on Poplar Avenue waiting to turn right on red a light. Inoue rode through the intersection and in front of Tivey’s truck just before Tivey turned right onto West Capitol Avenue. At this point, Inoue was in the bike lane directly to the right of the truck and Tivey sped up to pass the bicyclist.

Upon arriving at the El Rancho Mobile Park in West Sacramento, Tivey took a sudden right turn and caused a collision. Inoue crashed into the truck on the right side when the garbage truck abruptly passed in front of his path. After the incident, Tivey told the police “he had heard and felt something” at the time of the accident. However, he assumed he was experiencing engine problems because his truck was in need of repair. A janitor tried to get Tivey’s attention so he would stop his vehicle, but it was too late. Tivey killed Inoue by dragging him 45 feet into the driveway of the mobile park.

Agnew & Brusavich is representing Amy Brown, Inoue’s wife, in a lawsuit against Tivey and Waste Management. They claim Tivey was negligent for mistaking the accident for engine issues. Tivey is also facing vehicular manslaughter charges brought by the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office. He says his truck’s mechanical problems caused his failure to recognize that he hit Inoue. According to Bruce Brusavich, “Waste Management was grossly negligent in the maintenance of its truck, and it cost Kentaro his life. Tivey had written up engine problems, but if they had been promptly resolved, Kentaro might be alive today.” Tivey will face a separate criminal jury trial on September 25, 2017.

The attorneys at Amerio Law Firm hope this lawsuit will hold Waste Management accountable for their gross negligence. When reckless drivers cause accidents, they should be held responsible for the damages they cause. Losing a loved one is a painful experience that is made worse when their death was preventable. We hope this Sacramento personal injury lawsuit offers community awareness and helps to prevent future risk of serious injury or death caused by negligent drivers.

Breast Surgery

Posted by on Aug 14, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Breasts come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes, but no matter what the shape or size, they can create problems. People can find their breasts too big, too small, too low, too different from each other, or just not the shape they desire. Changing the source of an insecurity leads to a happier and healthier life, so cosmetic breast surgeons have spent years perfecting techniques to improve their skills to give people the confidence that comes with the removal of their source of insecurity. These surgeons, such as the cosmetic breast surgeons with Bergman & Folkers Plastic Surgery, can perform:

  • Breast implant removals
  • Breast augmentations
  • Breast reconstructions
  • Breast reductions
  • Breast lifts
  • Breast lift and implant combination
  • Breast implant exchange

Large breasts are not always the goal, they can also be the problem. Large breasts can create back problems from the burden of their weight on a person, severely affect posture, and pose a significant financial burden from the cost of buying specially made brassieres and tailoring clothing to fit over the breasts. A breast reduction can improve all these problems large breasts impose.

Besides augmentations and reductions, the surgeons can also perform reconstructions, which can help recreate the shape and size of a breast after a mastectomy performed on a cancer survivor. One of the most common treatments for breast cancer is a mastectomy, a procedure in which doctors remove the breast. Breast reconstruction is now at the stage in which cosmetic breast surgeons can closely recreate the exact size and shape of the survivor’s breast.

Breast cosmetic surgery can vastly improve a person’s outlook on life by giving them the confidence they deserve, whether it be by reducing breast size to take a weight off their shoulders or by recreating what an illness took away from them.
