Lessons to Learn From Zimmerman and Martin

Honestly, I did not follow the George Zimmerman criminal trial. On the surface it appeared to be a tragic outcome but I refuse to follow the media when it attempts (successfully unfortunately) to focus public attention on situations that don't warrant the focus. Personally, I was far more moved by the 19 young, elite firefighters who lost their lives attempting to save their fellow citizens' property and preserve a section of America. In my opinion, those men and their families deserved the attention and I would have watched. Instead the public was focused on a single episode on a street in Florida.

In Many States Citizens Have Already Lost More Than Their Guns

Regardless of your opinion on the great gun debate that has again resurfaced, the National Rifle Association (the "NRA") and its members have to be applauded for their determination and drive in fighting for rights vested by the United States Constitution. The NRA is perhaps the most influential lobbying organization in the United States. When the NRA talks, legislators listen. Legislators listen because there are between three and four million members in the NRA and those millions of members regularly go to the polls and vote. The Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings were tragic beyond description and certainly provide a legitimate reason to re-examine gun safety issues. Re-examining those issues has caused a swell of national news coverage and invoked provocative debates across America. I wish the same were true with victims' rights because debates are good. At a minimum, debates demonstrate that people care.

TRIAL LAWYER: WHY HIRE ONE?

It is widely known in the Pittsburgh legal community that only a small percentage of medical malpractice and personal injury cases are brought to court. However, if you are involved in one of the cases that are tried in court, it is crucial that you have one of the best trial lawyers on your side. Why? According to an article published in the Boston Globe, many attorneys have no trial experience, which is one of the things insurance companies look at when making offers. Insurance adjusters know who does, and who does not, go to trial and the same case with an attorney with no trial experience may seem worthless to an insurance company.

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY RECOMMENDS BREAST MRI'S FOR WOMEN WHO ARE HIGH RISK FOR BREAST CANCER

According to new guidelines published by the American Cancer Society, approximately 1.4 million women in the United States have an unusually high risk of developing breast cancer. These women should undergo an annual MRI examination as well as a mammogram. A recent study also suggests that women newly diagnosed with breast cancer should undergo MRI examination. For women with a new diagnosis of cancer in one breast, MRI is much better than mammography for determining whether the other breast carries a cancer. Women at very high risk of breast cancer can be diagnosed much earlier when combining the two technologies rather than using mammography alone.

Birth Injuries and Cerebral Palsy

Despite extensive access to prenatal care and a level of medical technology undreamed of in previous generations, almost 5% of the children born in the United States suffer from birth defects. Some of these children - those with minor injuries - may recover quickly and completely, but others are subject to a lifetime of disability. Unfortunately, the negligent and avoidable errors of doctors, hospitals and nursing staff during the birthing process can cause such injuries, such as cerebral palsy.
