What can you do if a defective product hurts you or a loved one?

You interact with numerous products every day. You wake up on your mattress, use multiple cosmetic products, get dressed, make coffee, heat oatmeal and commute to work in a car. You could easily use over a dozen different products just getting ready for your day.

You likely purchased all of these items with the expectation that they meet specific standards and perform their intended job. That is what most products do, but some products are simply defective. They don't stand up to the standard use for which they were designed. They may break or malfunction in a way that causes injury, property damage or even death.

Filing your injury claim after a commercial truck accident

If you recently experienced an accident involving a commercial truck, you may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of building your claim and pursuing it. Unlike accidents between consumer drivers, commercial truck accidents typically involve the driver's employer, the owner of the truck itself or some other party who may be responsible for the damages.

Do not assume that the other party will do the right thing and volunteer full compensation for all of your losses and injuries. In reality, the party who is responsible for the accident will probably do everything they can to reduce the amount they must pay, especially if the accident involves a large corporation with a strong legal team.

Valsartan Recall Continues To Expand

Valsartan is commonly used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. However, in July 2018 the FDA issued a major recall on valsartan medications, after discovering that many contained a dangerous carcinogen called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).

There is no shortage of potential truck accident causes

Safely operating a passenger vehicle is easier said than done. There is trouble lurking around every corner, and it's your job to avoid it at all costs.

In addition to single vehicle accidents, you have to concern yourself with being involved in a crash with another vehicle. This is particularly true of commercial trucks, as an accident with a large vehicle has the potential to cause extensive damage and serious injury.

Driving may seem like second nature but risks are everywhere

The biggest concern in the aftermath of a car accident should be your health and well-being. While the condition of your vehicle may be concerning, your health comes first.

Even a minor fender bender has the potential to result in many types of injury. Understanding the different types of injuries can help you receive the right medical care. These injuries could include:

  • Head injuries: A concussion is a common car accident injury, since you may strike your head in the crash. However, a traumatic brain injury could also occur, which is much more serious.
  • Back and neck injuries: These range from sprains and strains to fractures that cause paralysis. The more forceful the impact, the greater chance of a back or neck injury. A rear-end collision often leads to whiplash.
  • Broken bones: You can break almost any bone in a car accident. Your arms, legs, hands and feet are the most susceptible to injury, but you should never ignore pain in other parts of your body.
  • Soft tissue injuries: A soft tissue injury can be an ACL tear or muscle strain. Muscle and ligament damage can cause immediate pain and ongoing issues, if not treated quickly.
  • Abrasions: When your body is thrown around the cabin and debris is flying, you could suffer abrasions or deep lacerations.

Stress Could Be Causing Poor Sleep Quality

Stress and sleep are closely linked! If you've been suffering from poor sleep quality, stress could be the cause. Conversely, if your sleep schedule is insufficient, your stress levels are at risk of increasing. To avoid the long-term negative effects of stress, take preventative measures now.

Failing to diagnose breast cancer can hurt a patient's prognosis

Receiving a diagnosis for a serious cancer, such as breast cancer, is never what you want to experience at the doctor's office. You hope that your concerns are not the result of anything serious. However, failing to get a diagnosis that accurately reflects your condition could have a profound impact on your prognosis.

Women who go to the doctor presenting symptoms that could indicate breast cancer expect their doctor to take these concerns seriously. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

Forceps deliveries can lead to birth injuries

When you found out you were pregnant, it was one of the happiest, but scariest, moments of your life. You worried from the first day that something could go wrong with the pregnancy and that your child would end up with an injury.

People told you time and time again that everything was fine, even when you felt that something wasn't okay. You ended up going into labor early, and that's when you knew that mistakes were made. The doctor was late, and your child wasn't in the right position. That led to the use of forceps that injured your child.
