Health Insurance Attorneys After Denied Claims
Medical insurance is more complicated now than ever. When you have been injured, having an experienced attorney on your side may make the difference between crippling insurance debt and getting the medical benefits you paid for. Health insurance adjusters and representatives are not working on your behalf, though it might seem like it at times, but are there to serve the companies they work for. Often, working with an attorney to deal with medical claims can help you quickly and quietly get what you need in out of court settlements.
Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
If you placed a loved one into the care of a nursing home or other medical care facility, you are entrusting them with caring for your family member with dignity and experience. All too often, life at a nursing home can turn into a nightmare for loved ones, left alone and neglected or suffering injuries. Negligent care and mistreatment in nursing homes is a very serious problem that can even lead to death. At Emerson Scott, LLP, we believe nursing homes should be held accountable when they have not fulfilled their duty of care and placed a higher priority on profits than caring for residents’ needs.

Drug Injury or Medical Device Injury
If you have been injured by a medical device or drug, Emerson Scott, LLP may be able to help you recover from an injury and hold manufacturers accountable. Poorly made medical devices and drugs can cause injury or death to patients, especially if they have not been throughly tested before being released to consumers. In many instances, one person coming forward who has been injured by a medical device or drug can help prevent many more people from being harmed or killed. Learn More →
Oil Field Accident Attorneys
A drilling rig or other operations related to oil and gas drilling can be the cause of significant accident, injuries, or death when the equipment is not properly used or properly maintained. Also, oil and gas fields and related equipment can be extremely dangerous if abandoned without taking safety precautions or left improperly secured. Unfortunately, many individuals have been hurt by oil field equipment, including children who were injured while playing on oil field equipment left unsecured. At Emerson Scott, LLP we help clients who have been injured or killed by oil field equipment. Learn More →
Trucking Accident Attorneys
Trucking accidents can be catastrophic, leading to severe injury, dismemberment or disability, and even death. If you or a loved one was injured in a trucking accident, attorneys at Emerson Scott, LLP may be able to right the wrongs caused by a truck driver who was inattentive, speeding, drunk, drugged, and/or sleep deprived or who operated defective trucking equipment resulting in injury or death. Trucking and shipping regulations were created to protect individuals from harm caused by big wheelers and long-haul rigs. However, in an effort to meet strict deadlines and tight budgets, some trucking companies and drivers ignore regulations and cause truck accidents. Learn More →
Railway Workers and Asbestos
The Federal Employers Liability Act (F.E.L.A.) requires railroad companies to provide a safe working environment for their employees, which is why the Arkansas and Texas attorneys at Emerson Scott, LLP feel a duty to seek justice for rail workers who became sick from on-the-job asbestos exposure. Exactly how were railroad and railway workers exposed to asbestos, which is the primary cause of mesothelioma and a major contributing factor to lung cancer? There are three ways that our lawyers have learned from experience that rail employees came into contact with potentially lethal asbestos products:
- They worked on or near locomotive insulation.
- They worked on or near electrical switches and components.
- They worked in the vicinity of asbestos-containing brakes.
Over the course of an entire career working for railroad or railway companies, thousands of people in this industry were exposed to asbestos and later became sick. And because this constitutes an unsafe work environment, these workers have the unique resource of being able to hold the company for which they worked responsible for medical expenses by bringing a claim under the F.E.L.A. statute which promises protections for railroad employees. In addition to providing compensation for medical expenses, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2003 that railroad employees may be eligible for additional funds under the F.E.L.A. statute because of the “mental anguish” brought on by coping with health-related stress. The asbestos and “meso” attorneys at the Firm work with victims who became sick from occupational asbestos exposure each and every day. Our mission is to provide swift, compassionate justice for these tradesmen and women. If you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos during your work as a railway worker or in some other occupation, contact John Emerson or David Scott today. Learn More →
