Pennsylvania Injury Lawyer Julia Munley Comments on Right-to-life battle of 13-year-old

Posted January 8th, 2014 by Munley Law.

The family of 13-year-old Jahi McMath, an 8th-grade girl from California who was declared brain dead after suffering complications from sleep apnea surgery, has achieved its goal of moving the girl to a new facility for long-term care to care for her injury.

Jahi underwent surgery at Children’s Hospital in Oakland on December 9 to treat sleep apnea. Surgeons removed her tonsils and other parts of her nose and throat to widen the air passages. While recovering in the Intensive Care Unit, she bled heavily from her mouth and nose and eventually went into cardiac arrest. Doctors at the hospital declared her brain dead three days later and moved December 20 to remove her from the ventilator.

Posted January 8th, 2014 by Munley Law.

As an experienced injury lawyer at Munley Law of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Marion Munley has seen many teens start out as careful, cautious drivers, but it only takes a few months behind the wheel before teens feel over-confident in their driving skills and get involved in a car accident. Dialing cell phones, texting, eating, and talking to passengers are all examples of things that teens may do while driving. Multitasking distracts teens and all drivers from the road, a skill that still requires their full attention.

This topic was recently published in the Jan. 2 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine from a study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development. The data reveals that, compared to experienced drivers, new drivers engaged in secondary tasks less frequently during the first six months. Between months 7 and 15, […]

During a sudden heavy storm over the recent holidays, a chain reaction crash involving 35 vehicles closed down a section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Several tractor-trailers were mixed in the wreckage, which caused a 4-mile traffic jam. Ten people were taken to area hospitals.

According to a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer, those same wintry conditions existed when more than 40 vehicles piled up in multiple crashes on I-78, closing the interstate for a time, and resulting in more than 60 injuries.

Numerous accidents have also been reported on smaller roadways throughout Pennsylvania.
