Personal Injury Articles Archives

Assumption of risk on the slopes

Snowboarding and skiing are relatively dangerous sports with potential dangers that can cause injury or death. While skiers and riders are encouraged to enjoy the sports while remaining in control, one occasional premise for injury is boarders or skiers losing control and crashing into each other. Those who enjoy these sports understand that there is risk, but sometimes there is still potential for a personal injury lawsuit.

It's the season for slip and fall injuries

Slip and fall injuries can happen any time of year. However, walking seems to get more treacherous every winter as fewer people shovel their sidewalks and temperature shifts mean snow melts and then freezes into ice patches. Even handrails can ice over leaving those on foot to struggle with the very real fear that they could break a hip, injure their spin or become concussed if they hit their head when they fall.

New non-invasive equipment tests for concussions

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently cleared a new medical device called the EyeBox for detecting concussions. The relatively modest-sized piece of equipment (as opposed to a CT scan) designed by a neurosurgeon tracks the movements of the eye to detect signs of concussion. This clearance is based on years of testing and can be used on patients ages 5 to 67 years old.

Stores use robots to decrease accidents and injury

It is commonplace for shoppers to see staff stocking shelves and keeping stores clean and safe. A new sight in the coming year, however, will be the appearance of Marty - a wheeled robot that patrols aisles to alert human staff when there is a spill or inventory that fell off the shelf. The robot will signal an off-site operator who will then notify store staff. Once the notice is acknowledged, Marty returns to the site of the broken jar of mayonnaise, sprig of basil or fallen box of containing a Nerf toy and waits. The staff then presses a button on Marty acknowledging a cleanup.

Injuries increase during this time of year

New Years day is a time to think about resolutions. For some this can mean more exercise, but many find themselves thinking about a lawsuit after injury due to careless negligence of others. According to news reports, the holidays and other hard-partying days like the Super Bowl lead to a surge in personal injury lawsuits.

J & J admits to asbestos in baby powder, but it gets worse

Johnson & Johnson has been the leading manufacturer of baby power for decades. Then the company was slapped with a $4.7 billion verdict against it after 22 women claimed that the company's baby powder caused their ovarian cancer. This July 2018 ruling led to further investigations of the company.

New report released on most dangerous toys

It is hard for parents to keep up. They may be careful in their own purchases for the kids, but Aunt Ethel whose kids are grown or confirmed bachelor Uncle Steve may inadvertently go rogue while shopping for Christmas and birthday gifts. While birthdays can still be managed, Christmas may be a blur moving hands and flying paper. This is then followed by racing around house at top speed with the bounty.

New protocols for kids with concussions

The increase awareness of concussions and their lingering effects have been one of the major recent issues in medicine. Whether it is professional sports figures forced to follow protocols or changes in the rules for football, we see precautions all around us. This has carried over to younger children as well with parents, teachers and healthcare professionals who look after them.

Bedsores: Potentially serious, infection-causing wounds

There are mistakes that happen in nursing homes, like failing to check on a patient regularly or neglecting duties to a patient who is immobile. Usually, missing one check-up isn't the end of the world, and the staff takes steps to make sure it doesn't happen again. However, when patients go without care for a more significant length of time, that's when the real trouble starts.

Fitness weights recalled after many serious injuries

The weightlifting equipment manufacturer and distributor Cybex has recalled 15,000 units produced over a 20-years period. Primarily used in health and fitness clubs, the plate-loaded weightlifting equipment has been tied to 27 reported injuries, including spinal fractures and paralysis, after the weight bar unexpectedly fell on the user.
