    Why You Should Hire an Attorney for Criminal Traffic and DUI Offenses

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Most drivers experience a few incidents during their driving careers. Did you know speeding tickets and other offenses can have a major effect on your life? Criminal traffic and DUI offenses can harm your reputation, affect your ability to drive, raise your insurance, and cost you hundreds of dollars. Fight for your freedom with the help of a quality attorney.

    • Protect Your Reputation

    Criminal traffic and DUI charges can have an effect on your life at home and at work. With serious enough criminal charges, you could even face a jail sentence. It’s important to prove your innocence, so you can protect your reputation and not risk losing your job, family, or freedom.

    • Save Money

    If you are convicted of a criminal traffic or DUI offense, you are often required to take expensive classes. These classes can cost hundreds of dollars extra on top of the ticket amount and additional fees you are required to pay to the state. A knowledgeable attorney can help prevent you from incurring these costs.

    • Keep Your License

    With both criminal traffic and DUI convictions, you risk losing your driver’s license. Traffic tickets rack up points against your license, and enough points means a full year’s suspension from driving. Without a DUI attorney fighting for you, you could have your license revoked or face the embarrassment of using a breathalyzer each time you want to drive.

    • Maintain Low Insurance Rates

    A traffic or DUI conviction will likely result in an increase in your insurance rates, which can cost you hundreds of dollars in the long run. Preserve your low rates by fighting in court with the help of a DUI attorney.

    4 Common Birth Injuries That Can Result From Medical Negligence

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Bringing a new child into the world is a special time for parents. Unfortunately, with a busy and rushed medical system, accidents during the birthing process can occur. Medical malpractice is a common incident that can cause minor or major problems during the birthing process. If you noticed a medical condition after your child’s birth, you may need to hire a personal injury attorney.

    1.     Cerebral and Brachial Palsy

    There are a number of different palsy conditions that can occur due to damaged nerves. Sometimes, these injuries only affect your child for a few months; other times, these injuries can affect a child for life.

    2.     Fracture

    Babies are very delicate, and without extreme caution, fracture can occur during birth. If your child was injured in during or after the birthing process, you may be entitled to compensation due to medical malpractice.

    3.     Brain Damage

    Brain injuries, paralysis, and other related cases are somewhat common during birth. These injuries can occur from unnecessary force put on the child or a lack of air due to oxygen deprivation. These birth injuries can cause a number of other conditions to develop.

    4.     Jaundice

    This condition, also called kernicterus, can cause permanent brain damage if not immediately treated after a child’s birth. It is caused by uneven blood levels and must be diagnosed quickly to avoid long-term complications.

    If your child experienced an injury during birth, it’s important to know your rights under medical malpractice law. The personal injury attorneys at the Law Office of D. Hardison Wood practice in these legal areas and can help you better understand your case. To speak with a personal injury attorney at our Cary office, call us at (919) 238-4668.
