Product Recalls Occur Every Day, But Who Pays The Price?

Product Recalls Occur Every Day, But Who Pays The Price?Despite the best intentions of product manufacturers and food producers everywhere, recalls can happen. When a defective item causes injury, or a contaminated food causes illness, the items must be recalled in order to protect the masses from further injury or harm.

The romaine lettuce recall that occurred early this past summer sickened over 210 people in 36 states with 96 hospitalizations, 27 reports of kidney failure, and 5 deaths before it ended in June. The cause was eventually traced back to the canal water in the Yuma growing region.

The current E. coli outbreak associated with romaine lettuce has sickened 59 people in 15 states and Washington D.C., with 23 people being hospitalized. Adams Bros. Farming., Inc. has been identified as the source... ...read full post

Learning When Insurance Companies Are Trying To Sabotage Your Personal Injury Case

Learning When Insurance Companies Are Trying To Sabotage Your Personal Injury CaseBefore you experience an accident in southwest Florida, you may be under the impression that your car insurance provider is on your side. Your insurance provider may have promised the world before you signed your policy, and they may be pleasant while you’re making your premium payments without actively requiring their services. However, it’s important to remember that insurance providers are businesses first, and like any business, they’re going to look after their bottom line as the top priority. For this reason, you may be surprised at how far insurance companies are willing to go to minimize your settlement amount or have your claim tossed out altogether.

Car accident attorneys in southwest Florida are well-versed in insurance company tactics when it comes to minimizing settlements. The best way to protect yourself against these strategies is to have an experienced Florida auto accident attorney by your side.

How A Car Accident Can Affect You Both Mentally And Emotionally

How A Car Accident Can Affect You Both Mentally And Emotionally Most people think about the horrible physical injuries that can occur in an auto accident. Everything from whiplash to traumatic brain injuries can have an impact on your daily life. Not many people, however, think about the emotional and mental effects of an auto accident.

Changes To Your Life

There are several ways in which an auto accident can change your life and even decrease its quality.

• Self-care can be compromised when injuries or depression make it difficult to shower, brush your teeth, or change your clothing.
• An accident can compromise your ability to work and earn a living. This can be especially difficult when you’re the sole support of the family, leading to feelings of loss and failure.
• Relationships can suffer when anxiety and depression keep you from caring for your loved ones and interacting with friends.
• Pain, suffering, and the challenges of recovery from an auto accident can take away your ability to find pleasure in activities you once enjoyed.

Common Injuries In Florida Trucking Accidents

Common Injuries In Florida Trucking Accidents When a truck accident occurs, it’s the drivers and passengers of other involved vehicles who are more likely to suffer devastating injuries than those occupying the truck. Large trucks travel with great size and force, and when an accident occurs with a regular-sized passenger vehicle, it’s the occupants of that vehicle who are likely most at risk. These injuries can be permanent, long-lasting, or even deadly, which makes receiving compensation incredibly important to the healing process.

The Top 5 Most Common Injuries Suffered In Truck Accidents

A DUI Dual Perspective: The Victim And The Passenger

A DUI Dual Perspective: The Victim And The PassengerPeople like to enjoy themselves over the holiday season. Some people in southwest Florida might enjoy themselves a bit too much. When a night of festivities leads to an unfortunate accident, parties on both sides can suffer.

The Victim: Injured Through Innocence

Nearly 30 percent of all fatal car accidents in Florida are the result of someone driving while under the influence of alcohol. Though sometimes it is the drunk driver who suffers the fatality, there are many innocent people who suffer in this type of accident. Driving home from a late shift at work, a family gathering, or a night out with friends can result in the loss of life when other people are careless.

But death is not the only injury that can occur in a car accident with a drunk driver. As the victim of a drunk driving accident, some of the serious injuries that one can sustain include:

• Head injuries, including traumatic brain injury
• Spinal cord injury, including paralysis
• Broken bones and fractures
• Bruises, cuts, and lacerations
• Internal injuries
• Whiplash and soft tissue injuries
• Limb amputation or disfigurement
