Vaping Illnesses and Deaths Are Increasing: Are the Devices Themselves to Blame?

By |November 12th, 2019|Product Liability|0 Comments

Vaping used to be marketed as a safer alternative to cigarette smoking. Not anymore. Doctors are now working hard to find out why so many vaping illnesses and deaths are occurring. Originally, researchers focused on “tainted vape oil containing cannabis or nicotine extracts,” according to USA TODAY. A recent report has suggested that vitamin E acetate could be the link to the illnesses. Other research, however, is looking to see if the devices themselves may be to blame. Dr. Tony Casolara, who formerly worked as a clinical chief of the National Institute of Health’s pulmonary medicine [...]

Could Your Doctor Have Given You Dangerous Breast Implants?

By |October 29th, 2019|Product Liability|0 Comments

You assumed you would be getting an FDA approved medical device when you went in for your breast implant surgery consultation. You researched doctors, found one you were comfortable with, chose the implants you wanted, and booked the surgery. The doctor is legitimate, so why would you have to worry about whether your implants would be? Not all implants, however, are safe, and yours may not be FDA approved at all. An Idaho plastic surgeon is about to learn from his error in judgment as he awaits sentencing for inserting breast implants imported from China into [...]

Commercial Truck Safety is Cost Prohibitive. It Shouldn’t Be.

By |October 23rd, 2019|Truck Accident|0 Comments

If you drive on a regular basis, you have probably seen this more than you ever should have – a tractor trailer flipped on its side, passenger vehicles crushed, and first responder vehicles scattered throughout the scene. Whatever the truck was hauling may be strewn everywhere, causing the roadway to be closed and traffic diverted. Commercial truck accidents have become the norm, not the exception, and they are terrifying. Transportation companies have been notorious for pressuring drivers to stick to tight delivery deadlines for years. After all, time is money. This industry practice has come under [...]

Have you ever had someone spray too much Lysol around you and your eyes sting, or you feel like the air is heavier to breathe? Maybe your co-worker’s perfume is giving you a headache again. Have you ever wondered why it bothers you? It may not be allergy-related, as some people believe. Unless you have had a specific reason to research VOCs, such as exposure in the workplace, you have likely never heard of this acronym, but it’s becoming more important by the day. It stands for Volatile Organic Compounds – AKA, dangerous chemicals. Several of [...]

By |October 8th, 2019|Sexual Assault|0 Comments

The I-20 corridor, which runs from Birmingham, Alabama to Atlanta, Georgia, is known as the “sex trafficking super highway.” If you were unaware that Alabama had a sex trafficking problem, you are not alone: this particular crime is usually associated with more populous, urban environments, and Alabama is a largely rural state. As Christian Lim, professor of social work at University of Alabama, UAB’s Institute for Human Rights, explained, there are a lot of misconceptions about sex trafficking. Today, we wanted to start with the basics. What is trafficking? “Trafficking” is dealing or trading in illegal [...]

The answer, like with so many things, is “it depends.” When an app creator is [...]

By |September 12th, 2019|Car Accidents|0 Comments

Alabama law requires all individuals occupying the front seat of a motor vehicle to wear a seat belt while the vehicle is moving or on the road, with some minor exceptions.
