RAMEY & HAILEY LOOKS BACK OVER ITS 43RD YEAR OF PRACTICE

As the 2019 year draws to a close, we at Ramey & Hailey feel thankful to have completed our 43rd year representing clients who have suffered catastrophic losses. To us, our work means    so much more than winning compensation for our clients; it’s our way of carrying the banner for causes designed to make our communities safer – and our society a little fairer – for everyone.

Some important accomplishments this year involved:

Gun violence

One major initiative for us this year was to reach innocent folks whose lives were thrown totally off track because they or someone they love was victim of a gun accident. Of course, no amount of money recovered in a lawsuit can undo the catastrophic physical damage of a shooting or bring the murdered back to life. What we have been able to do is use our experience and legal knowhow to help “recover” or win dollars. Those were dollars sorely needed to pay for the extensive medical and psychological treatments for the injured or dollars to help support dependents of the no-longer-present breadwinner.

Nursing home abuse

This year several of our important cases centered around abuse and neglect in senior care, violations that have become all too common in nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities. When family members trust caregivers to alleviate loved ones’ suffering and preserve their quality of life and that trust is breached, it is of crucial importance to hold the facility legally liable, sending a message to all that such treatment is unacceptable and that there will be consequences.

Slip and fall accidents

The start of this year marked an ending to a very large slip and fall injury case handled by our firm, ending in a settlement to the plaintiff enough to take care of her for the rest of her life. This case of a healthy woman permanently disabled, with estimated lifetime medical expenses numbered in the seven figures, demonstrated the importance of remaining vigilant and of seeking legal representation after a slip and fall accident.

Sexual abuse in schools

One aspect of our work this year focused on helping parents of children sexually abused by either another student or by a staff member file civil suits against the school districts involved (no simple matter, because there is a very complex and time-sensitive complaint process that needed to be followed). Sexual abuse is always a very sensitive crime to discuss, yet seeking help is the first step in identifying and convicting offenders and helping victims to heal.

Medical practitioner defense

While Ramey & Hailey, since its inception, has been involved in malpractice litigation against medical practitioners, this year many medical practitioners have turned to us for their own protection as well. We were called upon to help medical professionals deal with the emotional and financial damage they suffered when their careers were unfairly threatened. Because we are experienced in dealing with both board proceedings and malpractice litigation, we are able to protect both “sides” from unfairness and harm – the patients and the physicians upon whom those patients depend.

Other litgation areas

In addition to all these areas, clients came to Ramey & Hailey asking for help in matters involving birth injury, school bus accidents, and even environmental issues. We worked especially hard this year to keep our blog readers informed on current events, reporting on and interpreting important developments through our NewsBlog series.

Community involvement and professional development

Throughout the year, our firm continued to focus on community and professional development activities. At the Andrew J. Brown Academy charter school, Richard Hailey and law partner Mary Beth Ramey funded a three year cloud-based literacy program called Achieve 3000®. Meanwhile, both attorneys remained involved in training other legal professionals through the annual Deposition College program.

“There is a value in practicing personal injury law,” explains the Abraham Lincoln University website,”that goes beyond a dollars-and-cents argument…It’s a difficult, competitive field – and it’s incredibly rewarding.”  For the attorneys at the Ramey & Hailey personal injury law firm, its 43rd year was (as the Frank Sinatra song goes), “a very good year”.
