Defective Hanging Light Fixtures (Ceiling Boxes)

Submitted by jrlaw on Nov 6th, 2013

Ceiling Box RECALLToday's recall of ~22,400 Ceiling Boxes by Cooper Crouse-Hinds is interesting. The CPSC says that the ceiling boxes can crack, which can cause the light fixture to fall from the ceiling, posing an impact hazard to consumers. While no injuries have yet been reported as a result of this product defect, the potential for injury or death is still there for those who do not seek a replacement or refund. Many people using this product in their homes will probably never even know it was recalled.

Discovering Nursing Home Abuse

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 11th, 2013

Abusing somebody in a nursing home facility is an egregious enough offense that most people really don't want to accuse anyone of having done it. Unfortunately, this may lead people to doubt very good instincts about whether or not someone they loved is being abused in such a facility. Here are some of the things that may lead you to take action if you believe that someone you love who is in a nursing home is being abused. Remember, you can also report nursing home abuse if you believe it is happening to somebody else at the nursing home facility with whom you have no real emotional involvement. You very well may be doing them a favor.

Overmedication

Overmedication is one of the most common forms of nursing home abuse. It is also sometimes the result of simple negligence. If you go to visit a loved one and they don't suffer from any sort of a disorder that would affect them cognitively, watch out for signs that they may be being overmedicated. They may, for example, seem like they are intoxicated on a drug. They may wander in their conversations, have a difficult time paying attention, be nearly sedated or exhibit other signs that they have taken too much of a given drug. This has to be reported immediately, as it can quickly turn into a deadly situation.

How Birth Injury Attorneys Help Clients

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 11th, 2013

Birth injury attorneys help clients by filing a specific type of medical malpractice claim. If you take a look at many of the birth injury claims in the news, you'll see that a lot of them have to do with cerebral palsy. This is simply because cerebral palsy is a relatively common type of condition that results from birth injuries, hence many lawsuits are filed over a child being afflicted with this particular condition. When birth injury attorneys step in, they will typically start to take a series of actions to benefit their clients.

Expert Evidence

Because birth injury attorneys handle medical malpractice claims, they will have access to experts who can help to shore up their client's cases. The experts will take a look at the specifics of the claim, the child's condition, the conditions in the hospital, delivery room or the type of medical care the mother received before the injury was sustained and determine whether or not they believe that medical negligence likely played a role in the child's injuries.

Tips for Finding a Vehicle Accident Lawyer

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 11th, 2013

Assuming that you've already decided that you need to file a lawsuit over a car accident, you still have some big decisions in front of you. First and foremost is deciding upon which attorney you want to represent your claim. The field of personal injury law is full of practitioners, so you do have plenty of options, but there are also some sensible criteria that you can use to determine which attorney would best be able to represent you. Here are some things to consider.

Accident Recreation

If you've ever studied anything about trials, you know that eyewitness accounts aren't given much weight during the course of a court proceeding. This is because people, no matter how much they will protest hearing this, really don't have very good memories on the average. Your memory is very complex and, if you happen to have been in a car accident, you definitely are likely to have holes in your memory that result from the adrenaline of being in the accident, the intense fear of knowing that an accident is coming, if you did see it coming, and other factors that play into this.

Vaccine Scares May Be Endangering Children

Submitted by jrlaw on Jun 25th, 2013

You may have heard about claims that vaccines cause autism in children. This has become a popular Internet conspiracy theory and one that does an excellent job of making parents fearful of something that could actually save their child’s life.

There have been cases in the past where drug companies have put very dangerous products on the market. There are, in fact, thousands of cases working their way through the civil courts right now over these matters. Vaccines, however, have not been linked to autism by any serious scientists and not vaccinating children may mean making them take risks that are completely unnecessary.

Blind Spots on Semis Cause 1/3 of Accidents

Submitted by jrlaw on Jun 25th, 2013

According to information from Road Safe America, a full one third of accidents involving semi-trucks occur in the blind spots around these vehicles. These are areas that other drivers can actually avoid. The blind spots on a truck are minimized with the use of very sophisticated mirrors and, as technology advances, there are other types of sensing devices that are being employed to allow drivers to get a better idea of what is alongside them. For the present, however, it’s imperative that drivers in passenger cars are aware of what a semi driver can see and cannot see so that they can avoid getting into a crash with one of these massive vehicles.
