Watkins Construction and Roofing of Jackson Mississippi joins with Owens Corning to donate free roof for United States Army Veteran.

I have been very excited about being part of this project, we have really rallied together as a company, and it feels really good to be helping an Army Veteran”

— Michael Dier

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES , February 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jackson Mississippi-based Watkins Construction & Roofing is giving back to the community by donating a free roof to United States Army Veteran Arthur Mikell. A resident of Jackson Mississippi, Michael said he was having to sleep in his den due to roof leaks in his old roof.

The philanthropic move comes as a part of the Owens Corning national project called Roof Deployment, which aims to help troop members and veterans in need. The Roof Deployment Project aims to inspire, activate and match its network of independent Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractors with military families around the country in order to provide them with new roofs.

"I have been very excited about being part of this project, we have really rallied together as a company, and it feels really good to be helping an Army Veteran," said Michael Dier of Watkins Construction and Roofing. The company wants to address the additional stressors and challenges that military families face on a day-to-day basis, which occur as a result of military life. Household responsibilities can be one of the main stressors, which is why roofs can fall into disrepair and cause issues for people living in these homes.

"The Roof Deployment Project will play a key role in bettering the lives of United States servicemen, women and their families," said Martin C. Boire, Executive Director of Support Our Troops®. "It's a great symbol of support here at home for those who protect our country on a daily basis."


Watkins Construction and Roofing works to build quality residential and commercial roofs of all shapes and sizes in Jackson, Madison, Brandon, Byram and surrounding areas of Mississippi. They provide a wide range of services and ensure that customers' receive reliable customer service, high-quality materials and the best craftsmanship.


When troops are away from home, family life can be stressful for those left behind, and home repairs are often overlooked. That's why Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractors are working with Habitat For Humanity to offer new roofs to service men and women in need. Together, we can build a better future.

Alaska Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Employee of a Nursing Home or Healthcare Provider in Alaska To Call About Rewards If Their Employer Is Gouging Medicare with Overbilling

If you are a healthcare worker in Alaska and your employer is overbilling Medicare every day for unwarranted medical procedures or treatments please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 ”

— Alaska Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, February 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Alaska Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are appealing to an employee of any type of healthcare provider in Alaska to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a discussion about potentially very lucrative whistleblower rewards-if their employer is routinely gouging Medicare by forcing patients to undergo medically unnecessary medical treatments. We are also very interested in hearing from healthcare professionals if their employer is billing Medicare for procedures that never happened." http://Alaska.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The types of healthcare workers in Alaska the Alaska Corporate Whistleblower would like to hear from about federal whistleblower rewards include potential whistleblowers who have proof of the following:

* An employee at a nursing home in Alaska that is short staffed and not capable of providing mandated daily medical treatments to their Medicare patients, but the facility is billing Medicare as if they are fully staffed.
* A ER doctor who can prove their hospital/employer in Alaska is routinely admitting Medicare patients for medically unnecessary tests or procedures.
* An employee at a skilled nursing facility that is forcing Medicare patients to undergo medically unnecessary rehab-therapy-every day, or almost every day. Managers at the skilled nursing facility force their rehab therapists to perform these medically unnecessary procedures—or the therapist is forced to-work-part-time, or they get fired. The skilled nursing facility or rehab center could be located anywhere in Alaska such as Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, etc.
* An employee of an Alaska based hospice provider that is signing up Medicare patients for hospice-even though the patients do not qualify for hospice-because they are not dying.
* An employee of a hospital anywhere in Alaska that is routinely up-coding Medicare bills to the highest reimbursement levels beyond what the actual treatment that was provided.

The Center says, “If you are a healthcare worker in Alaska and your employer is overbilling Medicare every day for unwarranted medical procedures or treatments please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and allow us to explain how the federal whistleblower system works. The wrongdoing must involve at least a million dollars for a whistleblower to get properly compensated. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?" http://Alaska.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Alaska Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multimillion dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Alaska based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Alaska can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Alaska.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com.

Preventable Train Accidents: Personal Injury Lawsuits May Provide Relief

Florida Train Accident

If you've been involved in a train accident, call The Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin at (561) 557-4546 right away for a free consultation.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On February 4, 2018, an Amtrak Silver Star train traveling to Miami, Florida collided with a CSX freight train in South Carolina, killing two crew members and injuring more than 100 passengers.

On January 31, 2018, an Amtrak train carrying Republican lawmakers from Washington, D.C. to West Virginia collided with a garbage truck stalled on the tracks. The person in the truck was killed, and six people were injured.

On December 18, 2017, the new Amtrak Cascades train line in Washington State failed to slow down when approaching a 30 mph turn. The train, going 80 mph, derailed killing three people and injuring more than 80.

These major Amtrak train incidents, killing six people and injuring many more, occurred only over the last three months. Many other recent major accidents come to mind when thinking about train derailments, such as the New Jersey Transit train that did not slow down and drove into the Hoboken Train Station. Recall also the Amtrak crash near Philadelphia in 2015, in which the train derailed as it sped through a sharp curve, killing eight people.

Train accidents do not always include derailments. Take, for example, the Brightline train in Broward County. Over the last year, a Brightline train has hit a pedestrian or bicyclist four separate times. As another example, take the person who was struck by a falling metal pole when walking in a Washington D.C. Metro station. The metal pole was being used to close an area of the Metro station, and it had become dislodged. The accident resulted in traumatic brain injury to the pedestrian. It was an injury so serious that he could not return to work for the foreseeable future.

What Could Have Been Done to Prevent These Accidents?

With regard to the Brightline train example, it appears that the Brightline operation employed barriers to alert pedestrians and cyclists to oncoming trains. Some of the pedestrians and cyclists were injured or killed because they were trying to “beat the train.” In a handful of cases, the fatality was deemed a suicide. However, it does appear that more work needs to be done to foster a culture that respects signage and alerts around the Brightline train.

With regard to the Washington D.C. Metro accident, it appears that pure negligence caused that terrible result. In fact, the victim instituted a $50 million lawsuit against the Metro authority for failing to properly inspect and maintain the Metro station.

Finally, with regard to the many train derailments and spills we hear about in the news, three words are constantly repeated: Positive Train Control.

Positive Train Control

Positive Train Control (PTC) is technology that reliably and functionally prevents train-to-train collisions, over-speed derailments, incursions into established work-zone limits, and the movement of a train through a main line switch that is in the wrong position. In 2008, following a California railroad accident that resulted in 25 deaths, Congress required all railroads to install Positive Train Control by the end of 2015.

In late 2015, when it became clear that Amtrak and other railroads were not going to make the deadline, Congress extended the deadline to the end of 2018. Unfortunately, the facts appear to indicate that PTC could have prevented the tragedies that occurred in Washington State and more recently in South Carolina.

When A Lawsuit Can Hold A Railroad’s “Feet To the Fire” For Negligence

Railroad companies have a legal responsibility to provide safe passage on their trains. In addition, they have the responsibility to build and maintain safe train stations and railroad crossings. In legal terms, that is their legal duty. That responsibility also includes complying with all state and federal laws applicable to the industry. In sum, railroad companies have a duty of safety, and the applicable state and federal laws establish a particular standard of care that must be followed.

When a derailment occurs, when a crossing signal does not function, and when a train station has falling scaffolding because it is not properly maintained, then the railroad company has breached that duty to the riding public. If an injury occurs as a result of that breach of duty, then train accidents will, appropriately, lead to personal injury lawsuits.

The key to any personal injury lawsuit involving a train accident is to ensure that the railroad’s breach of duty, i.e., its failure to provide the required standard of care, was the cause of the resulting injury that resulted. Negligence on the part of the railroad – which is the actual breach of the railroads duty of care – can occur in many ways. It can be lack of, or poor, training of employees. It can be failure to maintain equipment, or allowing faulty equipment to remain in place. It can be ineffective, or non-existent, safety measures.

Interestingly, with regard to Positive Train Control, it appears that it cannot yet be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit in negligence. Given that Congress has extended the deadline for railroads to install the PTC systems to the end of 2018, it appears that lack of a PTC system cannot be used as a basis for a breach of the standard of care on the part of the railroad.

That said, there are many other ways in which a negligence lawsuit can be developed in order to hold railroad companies to their responsibility of providing safe travel.

Obtaining A Personal Injury Attorney

If you, or a loved one, have been involved in a train accident, either as passenger, crew member, or pedestrian outside the train, you deserve to know whether the injury you suffered can be compensated by the railroad company. Contact The Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin at (561) 557-4546 right away for a free consultation. We will have the wherewithal to investigate all of the facts surrounding the incident, strategize a way in which to learn more information from the railroad company to find precisely where the breach in duty occurred, and pursue a personal injury lawsuit appropriate to your situation. It would not be wise to stay in the dark with regard to injuries you suffered from a train incident. Contact an experienced, seasoned personal injury attorney today.

WELL Launches Personal Dashboard for its Crowdsale Supporters

WELL has announced the launch of its personal dashboard for crowdsale supporters, which will serve to improve the crowdsale process and insure compliance.

We wanted to make sure we could give as many people as possible the chance to participate and receive the whitelist bonuses we are offering. ”

— Ildar Fazulyanov, founder of WELL

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, U.S., February 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — WELL has announced the launch of its personal dashboard for crowdsale supporters, which will serve to improve the crowdsale process and insure compliance.

WELL’s personal dashboard has been launched on February 15th, in advance of its new crowdsale dates. The Whitelist pre-sale was originally scheduled to end on February 24th, with the public sale (ICO) beginning on February 25th and ending May 15th. The personal dashboard allows WELL to transition from Whitelist to public pre-sale, which will now run until April 15th. The Public Sale will run from April 16th to May 15th (no change will be made to the end date). This change has been made in order to accommodate overwhelming demand from supporters and to add more functionality to the WELL platform, and should come as good news to those who have been asking for an extension on pre-sale bonus rates and purchasing times. WELL is also expanding its focus to include diversified healthcare supporters, as well as offering its token sale to the traditional crypto-community and ICO supporters.

With this in mind, WELL has also developed a new bonus schedule, allowing more time for contributors to receive the maximum bonus of 40%. That 40% bonus will now be available until March 15th, with a 30% bonus given from March 16th to April 15th. When the crowdsale begins on April 16th, there will be a one-day bonus of 25%, which will decrease each week, ending with a 0% bonus during the last week of the Crowdsale.

WELL co-founder Alex Prokhorov emphasized, “Contributors who already participated in our pre-sale during the first week of February, receiving a 30% bonus, will now get an additional 10%.”

“We wanted to make sure we could give as many people as possible the chance to participate and receive the whitelist bonuses we are offering. We’ve been meeting with people interested in the cryptocurrency and healthcare space at recent conferences on our roadshow and have found that the response to our message has been overwhelmingly positive,” said WELL CEO and founder, Ildar Fazulyanov, who along with Prokhorov has been traveling through Asia this month speaking at various conferences and meeting with local clinics.

About WELL:
WELL is creating a global blockchain platform for high-quality healthcare, which will eliminate country borders and connect healthcare specialists and patients worldwide. The WELL token will enable an on-demand system that solves the current problems of cross-border payments, data accessibility, and payment risk, allowing areas with the highest quality of healthcare to serve the entire world. You can visit the WELL website https://joinwell.io to learn more. If you are interested in participating in the WELL pre-sale, please contact us at crowdsale@joinwell.io or join Official Telegram Channel https://t.me/joinwell.

Santa Clara County Judge Awards Nearly $1.6M in Interest and Costs Following an Almost $7M Verdict

Attorney Timothy McMahon

With $1.6M in interest and costs added by the court's post-trial order, the judgment now exceeds $8.5M, and interest continues to accrue at $60K/month.

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, February 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The San Jose, California personal injury law firm of Corsiglia McMahon & Allard has announced that a Santa Clara County judge has awarded an additional $1,600,000 in interest and costs on top of an almost $7,000,000 jury verdict, because the defense rejected a settlement offer in 2016 for an amount that was one-third of the jury's verdict. Interest of approximately $60,000 per month will continue to accrue until the judgment is satisfied. Attorney Timothy McMahon represented the injured plaintiff, 48-year-old Malte Selck, in Selck v. Tran, Santa Clara County Case No. 113CV246033. Mr. McMahon states that GEICO, the defendant’s insurer, that refused an earlier offer to settle for the policy limit of $100,000.00, is liable for the full amount of the judgment, including interests and costs. Mr. McMahon asserts that although GEICO had the right to settle or resolve the case at any point in the litigation process, it refused to pay its $100,000.00 policy limit when the limit was requested by Mr. Selck in writing early on, then rejected settlement offers on several occasions thereafter.

On January 29, 2018, GEICO's attorney sent Mr. McMahon a letter claiming that he and his firm had "disparaged" the insurance giant in making a public statement on Dec 7th 2017 about the verdict and trial result including a specific reference to the claim that GEICO was responsible for an additional $3,100,000.00 in prejudgment interest and costs. GEICO claimed that $3,100,000.00 had not been awarded and that it was not responsible for payment in any event. Mr. McMahon reports that, Plaintiff’s claim for pre-judgment interest and expert costs was actually $2,851,000.00 (not $3,100,000 as originally referenced) and subject to the court's ruling on a post-trial motion. According to Mr. McMahon, following the hearing on February 2, 2018, the court awarded almost $1,600,000.00 in interest and costs, with post-judgment interest accruing. He advises that since the date of the verdict, approximately $120,000.00 in additional interest has accrued.

Mr. McMahon reports that GEICO's attorney also stated that it was not a party to the litigation but thought the prior public statement about the verdict gave that impression. According to Mr. McMahon, "GEICO was not a defendant, however, GEICO was central to the defense of the litigation. GEICO is the defendant's auto insurance carrier, and as such, it both selected and paid for the defense attorneys, and paid all defense experts. In fact, the original defense attorney selected by GEICO was a GEICO employee." Mr. McMahon states that GEICO had the right to settle or resolve the case at any point in the litigation process, and that in 2016, when offers to settle exceeded the defendant’s policy limit, GEICO refused to provide independent counsel for the defendant, to advise her concerning potential exposure of personal assets. Moreover, according to plaintiff's counsel, it ignored Mr. McMahon’s February 25, 2016 written offer to pay for the defendant's consultation with an independent attorney to advise her concerning protection of her interests.
