Mesothelioma Lawsuit Jury Verdict Goes to Plaintiff for $12.9 Million

Mesothelioma Lawsuit Jury Verdict Goes to Plaintiff for $12.9 Million September 30, 2017. By Gordon Gibb.
Oakland, CA: No one conversant with environmental law remains so without a full understanding of the risks associated with asbestos, a substance once widely-used for its insulating properties in spite of growing evidence that asbestos is a carcinogen. While asbestos is still employed in some industrial applications, its use is tightly regulated. This, unlike the backdrop of decades past when policies and protocols around asbestos were, as alleged in scores of lawsuits, found lacking. To that end, a mesothelioma lawsuit filed by the widow of an asbestos mesothelioma victim speaks to the risks associated with direct, as well as indirect contact with asbestos fibers.

Victim told Transvaginal Mesh would make her “Feel like a 16-year-old Virgin”

Victim told Transvaginal Mesh would make her “Feel like a 16-year-old Virgin” September 26, 2017. By Jane Mundy.
Sydney, AU: An Australian transvaginal mesh inquiry underway involves complaints that would make good copy for a vulgar tabloid. One victim testified how she was told the mesh would make her feel like a “16-year-old virgin”. But if it takes sensational accounts such as these to make more women aware of transvaginal mesh side effects, all the better. These women are heroic for sharing such personal details.

Takata Airbag Recalls in China, Dorado Airbag Injury Lawsuit Filed in Nevada

Takata Airbag Recalls in China, Dorado Airbag Injury Lawsuit Filed in Nevada September 26, 2017. By Gordon Gibb.
Las Vegas, NV: The angst over potential airbag failure and the airbag recall involving primary, and some side airbags manufactured by Takata has transferred to China now, with the recent announcement that General Motors and its Chinese joint venture Shanghai GM will recall more than 2.5 million vehicles in China known to have faulty Takata airbags. Earlier, Volkswagen AG announced a recall of 4.86 million vehicles for similar reasons. Whether, or not this will result in an airbag lawsuit akin to litigation that is commonplace in the US remains to be seen – and whether recycled airbags and corresponding airbag injuries will also emerge as a tandem issue.

Actemra: Failure to Warn

Actemra: Failure to Warn September 22, 2017. By Jane Mundy.
Washington, DC: Given the fact that Actemra is marketed without warning of heart failure, stroke, and other serious injuries like its competitors must do, one would think it is the wonder drug for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. Until research and adverse event reports (AERS) got in the way and showed the med was just as likely to cause serious injuries as competing drugs - and given attorneys are investigating these AERS,  Actemra lawsuits may be on the horizon.
