AskTheLawyers.com™ Interviews Attorney Michael Perez About The Difference Between A Malpractice Claim And Surgeon Errors

Attorney Michael Perez

Attorney Michael Perez

In a video interview with AskTheLawyers.com™, attorney Michael Perez explains how to tell the difference between a surgical error and an unsuccessful operation.

These deadlines are so important because, in a lot of cases, if you don't file by that deadline, even if you have the best of cases, it can be thrown out for being untimely.”

— Michael Perez

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a video interview with AskTheLawyers.com™, Michael Perez, an attorney with Warshauer Law Group, P.C., explains how to tell the difference between a surgical error and an unsuccessful operation.

In the interview, Perez explained that a surgical error is a preventable mistake that occurs because the medical staff failed to follow the medical standard-of-care, which then goes on to cause an injury in a patient. Between 44,000 and 98,000 surgical patients die every year because of medical errors that could have been prevented, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. All surgery involves some measure of risk and even the best of surgeons can have a bad outcome. It takes a skilled attorney to investigate and determine what factors led to the injury.

Perez said that if you are still experiencing side effects from your operation months or years later, you should act fast as there are certain deadlines that could affect your case.

"It's very important for people to know what the deadline is to file your case, as it varies by state," Perez said. "In Georgia, the statute of limitations (deadline to file) is two years. That means you will have two years from the date of surgery. These deadlines are so important because, in a lot of cases, if you don't file by that deadline, by that statute of limitations, even if you have the best of cases, it can be thrown out for being untimely."

Michael Perez is an attorney based in Atlanta, Georgia, with Warshauer Law Group, P.C. He focuses his practice on medical malpractice and personal injury cases. Contact Michael Perez directly by calling 888-981-5602. Learn more at his AskTheLawyers.com™ profile.

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 13, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The most successful small business owners and entrepreneurs are always boosting their marketing skills. Even if you are long past your startup days, or have a marketing team in place it is essential to have knowledge in every area of your business. This, of course, includes both offline and online marketing strategies.

A good eCourse on marketing will help decision-makers in both marketing and non-marketing positions build a solid business foundation. This begins with getting really clear on your business vision, mission, goals, and objectives.

Next, you need to focus on developing your ideal client profile. Understanding who your ideal client is helps you craft a message that speaks directly to the people whose problems you can solve. A good eCourse on marketing will also help you determine what makes you unique. This is an important step because it helps you differentiate your course from the competition.

After you have your ideal client and USP completed it is time to jump into the multitude of both offline and online lead generation strategies. This will help position your product or service.

An eCourse on marketing should also include templates and plans to help keep you on track. These plans must include numerous metrics to test and measure the strategies you have chosen to put in place.

Lastly and most importantly a great eCourse on marketing should have an accountability aspect.

Accountability is such a huge part of business, especially when you are the sole owner. It’s important to find someone to help hold you accountable. When you do this, you’ll move forward faster than you imagined possible. It’s far too easy to make excuses when you only have to answer to yourself. Having an accountability buddy increases the likelihood of actually following through and completing your goals! Your accountability buddy will motivate you, call you out and push you to take the next step toward growth. They can often see what you’re really capable of and will inspire you to go the extra mile. A good accountability business buddy will help you foster a positive mindset and can become an essential part of your personal and professional growth. Essentially they help you to become the best version of yourself.

Testimonial:

“After completing the Marketing By Design Ecourse, I have a better grasp on how to communicate to my ideal clients which is much more fruitful than the less targeted approach I was using in the past. Committing to the course forced me to carve out time to update my marketing plan. It’s an inspiring ongoing process and I am excited about pursuing new business for the first time in a long time. I had to set aside the time to complete the course but the cost of time and money has been easily re-covered by the new business that was generated.”

Rebecca G, Financial Planner

Summary: A great eCourse on marketing will be skill-based and will focus on the practical aspects of marketing your small business. So get down to it and chose a program that will help you reach your goals.

Georgia Mesothelioma Victims Center Has Endorsed Attorney Erik Karst of the KVO Law Firm to Ensure A Navy Veteran or Person with Mesothelioma in Georgia Gets the Best Compensation Results on An Expedited Basis

Moms 4 Housing Encouraged to Peacefully Depart on Eve of Possible Oakland Eviction

Oakland Squatters Group "Moms 4 Housing" is offered free shelter and moving costs by Wedgewood Properties to Leave Oakland Home

We encourage Moms 4 Housing to accept this offer before eviction. We respect what they are saying, but we cannot condone the theft of the company’s home. We have offered free shelter and moving costs”

— Sam Singer, Wedgewood Spokesman

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 12, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wedgewood today again urged the Moms 4 Housing group which is illegally in its home at 2928 Magnolia St., Oakland, to leave voluntarily and peacefully and encouraged them to accept the company’s offer of free temporary shelter and moving costs.

“We are disheartened to read in Tweets and posts about the Moms 4 Housing squatter’s group statement that rejected the company’s offer of temporary shelter for two months and moving costs to be paid for by Wedgewood to Catholic Charities of the East Bay to assist the women and their children who are illegally in the company’s home.

“We again encourage the women to accept this offer before eviction. As we have said all along, we respect what they are saying, but we cannot condone the theft of the company’s home. We hope they see that we continue to reach out and ask them to depart our home voluntarily and peacefully. That is in the best interest of all parties,” said Wedgewood spokesman Sam Singer.

The Moms 4 Housing group lost a court case Friday when a judge confirmed they have no valid claim to Wedgewood’s home. They face eviction by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department in the coming days. The group broke in and has been in the home illegally since Nov. 18 last year.

Yesterday, in an effort to provide shelter and to move the Moms 4 Housing group’s belongings out of its home, Wedgewood offered to pay Catholic Charities to house them for the next two months so the mothers and their children can find new accommodations.

Woman Who Transformed an Electric Utility Tells Story on TV

Green Mountain Power electric generation is 90 percent carbon-free

Twenty years ago electric utility executives were skeptical about renewables, but in the last three years they’ve made them part of their systems. “We can’t go fast enough,” with renewables, he says.”

— Jan Vrins, Global Energy Practice Leader Guidehouse

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — How did a woman trained as a fine artist become the transformative head of an investor-owned utility? This is the intriguing story told on this week’s “White House Chronicle,” the news and public affairs program on PBS, SiriusXM Radio’s P.O.T.U.S., and other outlets.

“I call myself an accidental executive,” Mary Powell, the outgoing President and CEO of Green Mountain Power in Colchester, Vt., tells Executive Producer and Host Llewellyn King.

Powell expected to make a living as an artist but found that hard to do and so, 21 years ago, she got a job at Green Mountain Power, the utility company serving Vermont. A decade later, she was CEO of the then modest utility with assets of $500 million. Now it has assets of $2.5 billion.

She is joined on the episode by Jan Vrins, Managing Director and Global Energy Practice Leader for Guidehouse, a major public sector consultancy. He heads a team of about 800 people and has helped Powell transform the Vermont utility.

In particular, Powell and Vrins say they are proud that Green Mountain Power is at a point where its generation is 90 percent carbon-free and just over 60 percent from renewable resources, the difference being made up by nuclear, which Powell tells King is a “bridge” to 2030 when the utility will be 100 percent renewable.

Powell says she’s always been environmentally conscious, and it wasn’t hard to sell renewables to her customers who are too.

Twenty years ago, Vrins says electric utility executives were skeptical about renewables, but in the last three years they’ve made them part of their systems. “We can’t go fast enough,” with renewables, he says. “Climate change is here,” he adds, noting Puerto Rico and other places in the world that have been impacted by weather ructions.

Toward the end of the half-hour episode, airing this weekend, Powell and Vrins talk about the future — the uses of wind and solar and storage, including a role for hydrogen in storage as electric utilities, and those who serve them, try to find ways of compensating for wind droughts and cloudy days and adding resilience.

“White House Chronicle” airs nationwide on select PBS and public, educational and government (PEG) access stations. The audio airs four times weekends on SiriusXM Radio’s P.O.T.U.S., Channel 124. The programs airs worldwide on Voice of America Television and Radio in English and Chinese. All episodes are available on the program’s website and on Vimeo.
