Workplace negligence A man from Lubbock, TX, suffered a traumatic brain injury after falling from a flatbed trailer that had been loaded unevenly. He took the company who employed him to court to try and prove that the workplace environment was unsafe and had caused his injury. He won his case because the judge decided that the company should have provided him with safety equipment and more supervision while he completed his task. Medical malpractice/negligence A woman in San Antonio, TX checked into a hospital with extreme pain in her leg. She informed the medical personnel that she had a history of blood clots. However, the doctors diagnosed her with a condition that was less serious. A few days later, Connie was taken to another hospital where doctors were forced to amputate both her legs due to a serious blood clot. She has been unable to fight her case in court due to unyielding Texas laws concerning medical malpractice , though her injuries are certainly catastrophic .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
