Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Am I Reading This Wrong?

I was messing around on google this morning. I got so caught up in what I found, I can't even remember what I was looking for in the first place. Need more coffee. I came across a law firms page on the web containing recent verdicts they had received for their clients. Reading these had me scratching my head.

First of all. Who decides they want to be a Pleasanton motorcycle accident attorney, or an Injury lawyer? Do they actually specify which type of accidents they want to represent? Is this based on results after years of practicing or something they get into while studying law?

So I'm reading these verdicts, while scratching my head, a little sad for the families of the injured and deceased and a little confused. For instance. One family sued a rental car company when a tire blew during a trip from Texas to California. Most of the passengers walked away with scrapes and bruises, but a baby was ejected from the car and had severe head trauma causing hemiparesis and possible development delays. The rental company was found "at fault" for not repairing the tire correctly or not inspecting it after someone else did it. The thing is...the baby that sustained the injuries WAS SITTING ON THE MOTHER'S LAP. Now, I'm not saying that the company wasn't at fault, but couldn't this child's injuries been avoided if they had been in a car seat? I'd be interested to know how that played out in court and in the determination of settlement.

Another case that caught my eye was of a 19 year old that sustained major trauma to both hands when I wine press he was working on malfunctioned. OUCH!
