Why Should I Call JMB?

There are many reasons that a phone call to me, JMB, can help you with your case whether or not you choose to retain us.

First and foremost, we are looking out for you, the person who was injured through no fault of their own. Rather than continue to victimize you like the insurance industry does, we stand up to them. They are no different than schoolyard bullies trying to push you around and we won’t tolerate that. We take pride in the special care we give to all of our clients because we know how traumatic injuries can tear the fabric of a family apart. How a family’s entire life can be turned inside out and upside down by an accident or on the job injury.

Second, I’m from here. I was born and raised here. I’m not some corporate law firm that has blown into town with a lot of advertising telling you that they care about you and want to be your lawyer. You see me around town shopping in the same stores where you shop, eating at the same restaurants, at the same events you go to, out on the ballfields coaching my son and others in sports. This is my home. If you want to come and talk to me all you have to do is drive to my office and talk to me.

Third, I’m a fighter. Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m a fighter. I’ve been fighting for my clients for over 35 years now and when the insurance industry sees my name they know they are in for a fight. We are not afraid to take a case to court and go to trial and that makes a difference in how the insurance industry deals with us.

Fourth, we know how trauma affects the human body and we can assist you in getting the appropriate treatment for your injury. Many injuries go undiagnosed and untreated because injured people don’t see doctors who are trained to deal with trauma. Your primary care doctor is not a trauma specialist and many times specialized medical care is needed.

Fifth, we know how to gather and preserve evidence to put your case forward in the best possible light. Dont think for a minute that the insurance company isnt building a case against you. Every time they talk to you they are trying to get you to say something that hurts your case. That’s why it’s best to have an attorney speaking for you.

Lastly, it’s free. We don’t charge you to talk to you about your case. We’d love to hear from you so why not call us now? 888-WE FIGHT



Health Violations at Memphis Dentist Clinic Pose HIV Threats

The SPT Dental Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee was ordered to close down on July 1st by the Shelby County Health Department for putting patients at risk for blood-borne diseases. Inspectors reported having found unacceptable conditions in the clinic such as improper handwashing techniques and unsanitary dental instruments. Therefore, health officials have advised patients to test for Hepatitis B and C, and HIV. While no specific diseases have been officially connected to the dental clinic, a significant amount of patients could have been exposed to serious infection.
“More than 3,000 patients who have been treated there since 2007 could be at risk,” said Alisa Haushalter, the director of the Shelby County health department.

The investigation began when a patient at SPT Dental Clinic reported to the Tennessee Board of Dentistry complaints regarding sterility. Shelby County health officials have since reported on conditions in the dental clinic that were unhygienic to the point of possible disease transmission. Dr. Alfred Brown, the dentist who operated the clinic, has had his license suspended and is currently not commenting on the situation.

Free testing for blood-borne illness in Shelby County is scheduled for Monday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and has availability on weekdays.

The attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers believe that medical professionals have a responsibility to ensure that their patients are receiving the safest care, but, unfortunately, we see issues like this all the time. We are concerned for the safety of individuals in Shelby County, and will be happy to consult with anyone who may have been infected with a serious illness due to the negligence of a dentist. If you believe you have been injured by a medical professional, please contact our medical malpractice attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers today at (844) 275-8422.



Three injured in Tennessee fair accident

At a fair in Greeneville, Tennessee, three girls fell from a Ferris wheel on Monday, August 8. The Georgia-based Family Attractions Amusement company remains operational despite a similar incident that happened in North Carolina in 2013, which injured five people and caused the owner’s son to be imprisoned. In Tennessee, 6-year-old Briley Rae Reynolds, her 10-year-old sister Kayla, and a third girl, fell 35 to 40 feet to the ground after the accident.

Investigators concluded that mechanical failure caused the gondolas to flip over, sending the three girls to the ground and causing Briley Rae to suffer a traumatic brain injury. Kayla sustained a broken arm, and the third girl, only identified as a 16-year-old, sustained critical injuries, reported The Robesonian. Greeneville Police Detective Captain Tim Davis said inspectors hired by the Greene County Fair Board are further investigating the incident to find out what caused the malfunction that led to the accident.

Sardines Recalled Due to Botulism Concerns

The Greenland Trading Corporation is ordering a recall on Al Rasheed Sardine products from retailers in California, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. The most recent batch of sardines, marked with the expiration date 3/17, reportedly contains Clostridium botulinum. The bacteria cause an especially dangerous form of food poisoning, botulism.

According to the FDA, botulism can cause general weakness, dizziness, double vision, and trouble speaking or swallowing. Anyone currently experiencing these symptoms should consult a doctor as soon as possible. Medical authorities are strongly discouraging the consumption of these products because even the smallest exposure to the bacteria can mean death. Instead, consumers should return the sardines to the place of purchase for a refund.

Defective products such as these can have life-altering consequences. The attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers are experienced in holding companies accountable for negligent practices and obtaining restitution for the victims of toxic food products.

Study shows that majority of police officers from 2010-2014 were killed in auto accidents

A report released by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund on Friday, July 29 analyzed the deaths of 684 police officers over a five-year period (from 2010 to 2014) and discovered that 272 police officers were killed in automobile accidents or were hit by a car.

Of 91 police officers who lost their lives while responding to a dispatcher’s call for service, many were responding to calls of domestic dispute.

When examining the 132 deaths of police officers who were either responding to dispatcher calls or were conducting their own self-investigation, one can learn that 129 of them died from wounds caused by guns.

The report was released at an optimum time, as it was “being finalized, the nation is reeling from the ambush shooting deaths of five Dallas, Texas police officers, followed days later by a similar attack on uniformed officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in which three officers were killed”.

The financial burden associated with a personal injury accident caused by the negligent actions of other individuals is not only unfair, it is also very inconvenient. File a personal injury claim with the legal help of our attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers if this happened to you in Memphis or other areas in Tennessee.

Crash victim’s family suing the City of Memphis

The family of 80-year-old Memphis resident Lucille Grose, who lost her life in a two-vehicle accident on July 18, 2015, filed a lawsuit against the city’s police department. The lawsuit in the United States District Court of Western Tennessee charges the Memphis Police Department and the Memphis Fire Department with negligence. The family is seeking $5 million in damages.

According to police investigations, Grose pulled from a private driveway onto Shelby Drive in her 2000 Mazda when a Ford pickup traveling west on Shelby Drive crashed into her driver’s side door. The plaintiffs claim that even though a DUI police officer came to the scene of the accident, “a decision was made by MPD not to do a field sobriety test for alcohol or drugs upon the defendant of this fatality to see if this was a factor or possibility of drugs and alcohol was a causation to this fatality.”

The car accident attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers in Memphis understand the immediate physical and emotional damages of a crash may be too difficult to shoulder. Call us at (844) 275-8422 to see if legal action could help hold others responsible for your loss.

Tesla should forget Autopilot project – Consumer Reports

Product reviews and ratings magazine Consumer Reports urged California-based energy storage and automotive company Tesla Motors, Inc. to temporarily discontinue its Autopilot models until such time that the mechanism is updated to ensure that drivers are required to have their hands on the steering wheel at all times.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had earlier reported that 40-year-old Canton, Ohio resident Joshua Brown, the driver of a 2015 Tesla Model S sports car that was using the autopilot system, lost his life when his car drove into the path of a tractor-trailer on May 7, 2016, in Williston in Levy County, Florida. This counted as the first fatality using Tesla’s automated vehicle system.

Tesla’s Autopilot system makes use of cameras, computers, and radars to determine if there are objects in the vehicle’s way and a crash is imminent, using such incidents to determine when to veer away from said objects.

If you had been injured in a car accident in Memphis or other areas in Tennessee because other motorists are making illegal or dangerous maneuvers, driving under the influence, or driving while distracted, our attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers can help you take legal action against these irresponsible people when you call our offices today at (844) 275-8422.



Handicapped teenager files lawsuit against TSA, Memphis airport after bloody inspection

Nineteen-year-old Memphis, Tennessee-based St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patient Hannah Cohen was injured and then taken into custody by security workers at a Memphis International Airport checkpoint, according to a recently filed lawsuit by Cohen’s family against the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration and the Memphis airport.

According to Cohen’s attorneys, Cohen was impaired due to radiation and removal of a brain tumor, and is limited in her ability of using motor, cognitive, and sensory functions such as talking, walking, standing, hearing, and seeing. Court documents stated that when Cohen and her mother were going through a security checkpoint operated by the Memphis International Airport Police Department and the TSA, an alarm went off and Cohen became confused by the alarm and the security officers’ attempt to search her.

Shirley Cohen, the plaintiff’s mother, said, “She’s trying to get away from them but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor. There was blood everywhere.”

Cohen was then arrested, booked, and on the night she should have been celebrating the end of her treatment at St. Jude at her house in Chattanooga, she was detained at Shelby County Jail East Female Correctional Facility.
