Most People Need a Lesson in Boating Safety

Posted by on Oct 24, 2017 in Personal Injury | 0 comments

It was a beautiful Fourth of July day to be out on the lake with friends, in our rented boat, at least that was how it started.  We were just a bunch of dumb 20 something-year-olds, dancing and drinking without a care in the world.  Then, out of nowhere, some dumb teenage kids, racing jet skis, must have decided to try and see if they could, one-by-one, launch themselves and their jet skis over our above average size vessel.  It should not have taken a genius to realize that this was a horrible idea with quite possibly disastrous outcomes in its future.

We, on the boat, did not realize what they about to do, let alone what they had planned to do, until the first brave, yet also stupid, soul tried to launch himself over our boat, but missed and landed in my sister’s lap.  His jet ski slammed into the water and sent a huge wave our way that almost capsized our boat, at least it felt like it would.

Once we realized that this was just the first of four idiots out there with the same plan, and after we got over the shock of a surprisingly not drunk or half-baked teenager landing in our boat, we next tried to wave off, frantically, by the way, the next wave of teenage stupidity.  There is no way in heaven or hell that the next one could have possibly thought that our waves and yelling were signs of encouragement.  But, bless his probably big heart because he did it anyway.  It all happened way too fast, and they’re way too many other boats around, for us to try and move our boat and avoid all of this chicanery.

I don’t know if he forgot to lift the jet ski, or did get as good of a running start as his other friend over here, but this guy never even left the ground.  He plowed right into us, causing a jet ski sized hole to form right in the middle of our boat.

We didn’t really even bother to look to see if he was alive.  That was his friends’ job.  Instead, we, the boating party, scrambled around for the life jackets, which we learned too late were non-existent on this vessel.

While fully acknowledging that we were about to sink, we all jumped overboard.  Fortunately, we can all swim because we’re all not morons and know basic life skills.

Nearby boats help us into their boats, and gave us towels.

The kids that still had their jet skis picked up their friends and scurried away.  Fortunately, other boat owners out here saw what was happening and called the coastguard, who was waiting for them amidst the crown of party boats. Someone suggested that we research a Scranton Personal Injury Attorney to help us file a suit against those responsible for the trauma. 

Needless to say, both this set of juveniles and the people who rented us the boat, who did not give us enough life jackets and recommended this particular spot to park our boat, will be hearing from our parents’ very powerful and very expensive attorneys.

Everything You Need to Know About Hypnosis and Addiction

Posted by on Sep 18, 2017 in Hypnosis | 0 comments

Addiction Explained

Addiction is a compulsive need and use of substances such as alcohol, nicotine, or drugs. When you are addicted to something, your tolerance for that substance or activity (gambling and porn can be characterized as addictive activities) increases and going without that produces definite physiological changes, and this is known as withdrawal.

Addiction can’t be outsmarted. It is not a defect of character, and it is more than a bad habit. At the root of addiction is often a desire to escape physical and/or psychological pain or uncomfortable emotions. As an addict, It is common to think you are alone in your suffering, but approximately 20.6 million people suffer from some form of addiction in the United States.

How does hypnosis get rid of an addiction?

Hypnosis can help individuals get rid of their addiction in a non-intrusive way. AA and 12-step programs, while effective, are not for everyone. Hypnosis may be a preferable alternative for those who are uncomfortable speaking in groups. Hypnosis can also be a powerful supplement to those who are 12-step participants but want to supplement meetings with more than just focusing on abstinence.

Hypnosis addresses the emotional and psychological issues surrounding the addiction. The philosophy behind hypnosis is not just to encourage a person to stop drinking or using drugs, but to address why they use drugs or drink in the first place. Hypnosis gets to the core of the illness rather than just treating the symptoms. Instead of teaching someone they are powerless against their addiction, hypnosis helps people fix their coping mechanisms by solving their underlying issues.

What are benefits/what can you expect from hypnosis addiction therapy?

The hypnotherapy process puts someone into a deeply relaxed state, a place where you are somewhere between being asleep and awake. You are aware of your surroundings, yet unable to direct your focus which opens your unconscious mind consciously. This allows you to receive suggestions more willingly. Hypnotherapy techniques are created to change brain triggers, stop self-sabotage issues, release trauma and redirect the neural networks in the brain. During work with a hypnotherapist, he/she will explain your behavior to you, create a strategy for change, help you change via hypnosis and/or visualization, and then evaluate your progress. Unlike what is portrayed in movies and TV, hypnosis can’t force you to do anything you don’t want to do. Hypnosis is not magic or party trick. It is a respected, scientific process that helps beat addiction.

The experts at the Orlando Hypnosis clinic say that many people find that hypnosis calms the mind, body, and releases stress and anxiety. For those who averse to taking pills, hypnosis can be a helpful alternative for them. Hypnosis is quick, easy, safe, effective. Those who undergo hypnosis experience fewer, less painful withdrawal symptoms. Hypnotherapy is not just about getting you sober but keeping you sober.  It is important to note that while hypnotherapy is effective, it shouldn’t be used as one’s primary therapy. Do not agree to undergo hypnotherapy treatment with anyone who is not a licensed mental health professional.

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.

Factors That May Influence Child Custody Decisions

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017 in Child Custody, Divorce | 0 comments

Divorce is a legal nightmare. You have to navigate through laws concerning alimony, division of assets, and division of liabilities. But it gets worse if there are children involved, because you have additional laws to navigate through, such as those relating to child custody and child support.

A child custody lawsuit is always the most emotional in the family court. This is because either parent wants to get custody. Whether the child goes to the mother or father, it doesn’t change the fact that there will be major changes in their lives.

But how is child custody decided? There are certain factors that need to be considered.

Earning Capacity

There may be a lot of factors that may influence child custody, but they boil down on the same core idea – it is for the best interest of the child. To determine best interest, each parent’s ability to provide for the child is considered, and this generally means each parent’s financial stability to give the child food, shelter, education, healthcare, and security.

Medical Condition

The physical and mental conditioning of each parent is also considered, because these things can negatively affect the child. Those with physical and mental conditions, such as illnesses and anger management issues, may have a harder time fulfilling parental obligations and may even hurt the child in the long run, so they are less likely to get custody.

Relationship with Child

It is not always about money and health. Sometimes, it is about who is closer to the child and who is doing more for the child, such as on the following domestic aspects:

  • Bonding with the child, like participating in recreational activities
  • Handling the hygiene needs of the child, like giving him a bath and changing his diaper
  • Handling the medical needs of the child, like taking him to the dentist and doctor
  • Handling the nutritional needs of the child, like preparing him meals and packing him lunches for school

Child’s Choice

A child, especially one that is already rational enough, may have a voice regarding custody. However, his choice does not top the other entries in this list, because the best interest of the child is still the absolute criteria for child custody. But in the right conditions, the child’s choice is definitely considered in the decision process in child custody.
