In September, lawyers from Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, P.C., discussed legal topics related to current events and community organizations. Family law attorney Jennifer Riley invited community guests Harriet Hennigan and Claire Day of the Alzheimer's Association of Delaware Valley to discuss issues for people who have Alzheimer's disease and their family members. Ms. Hennigan and Ms. Day discussed signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's, as well as caregiver resources and tools for communication. Several Memory Walks will be coming up in October and November, including Philadelphia's Memory Walk on November 14.
Prompted by some serious injuries in a recent Eagles football game, attorneys Lewis Goodman and John Filice took on a prominent topic: head injuries in sports. For the past few years, the serious effects of head injuries and concussions have been gaining visibility, especially in the National Football League. NFL Commissioner Goodell has made concussions and head injury prevention a focus within the league. But as Goodman and Filice pointed out, most people injured in sports are not NFL players. They are children and young adults playing in youth, high school and college sports.
Greg Gifford and Bill Moore hosted a show focusing on auto insurance coverage. From the consequences of carrying too little liability coverage to protect personal assets, to the differences between limited tort and full tort options, the personal injury lawyers discussed auto insurance checkup tips.
Attorneys Eric Wilenzik and Bob Szostak discussed catastrophic injuries and the life changes that catastrophic injury victims face. The lawyers mentioned some of the various ways that people can be severely injured, from a traumatic brain injury caused by a simple slip-and-fall to a brain injury resulting from medication overdose causing lack of oxygen to the brain. They also discussed lost earning capacity and other factors involved in catastrophic injury cases.
