Wrongful death lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania court

A wrongful death suit has been filed in a Pennsylvania federal court by a woman who claims her husband died as a result of taking the drug Pradaxa. Her husband had been on the medication for several years to treat non-valvular atrial fibrillation, or a problem with the heart's rhythm. The wrongful death suit is against the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the drug.

AUTO INSURANCE, Part I: WHAT EVERY MOTORIST IN PA SHOULD KNOW

Auto insurance coverage may be one of the more important items you purchase, but do you really know what you are getting? Are you and your loved ones truly covered? Are your decisions on your auto insurance based only on the price? If so, you may want to take a closer look at what you are getting when you make your insurance selections. Motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States (source: CDC). It is important that you are educated on what your insurance covers and that you have adequate protection, before an injury happens.

Low T drug considered dangerous product in Pennsylvania suit

A dangerous product suit was recently filed in a Pennsylvania court. The suit is against two pharmaceutical companies that manufacture and market a drug sold to men who feel they suffer when their testosterone levels decrease as they age. The plaintiff feels that the stroke he experienced was due to a dangerous product specifically targeting men who are going through what is commonly known as Low T.

Snowmobile driver injured in collision with station wagon

As winter begins to thaw, people throughout Pennsylvania are putting away their snowmobiles and getting out the boating and fishing gear. Unfortunately, many people won't be able to enjoy the outdoors as much this year because of injuries suffered in snowmobile accidents.

Teens seriously injured in 4-wheeler collision

Accidents involving recreational vehicles such as ATVs and snowmobiles may require careful investigation to determine exactly what caused a collision. Sometimes these vehicles have defective parts; other times, dangerous premises factor into why a vehicle flipped. When juveniles are injured in a recreational vehicle accident, it is important to determine whether the kids were properly supervised.

Defective implant cause for Pennsylvania product liability suit

A Pennsylvania man is filing a product liability suit against a medical technology company that produced the artificial knee that he had implanted by surgeons. The suit also claims negligence along with product liability stemming from his injuries. A report would not identify the compensation amount he is seeking, just that it was enough to cover medical and legal costs and the sum he has lost and will continue to lose due to being unable to work because of the defective implant.

POLICE OFFICER LINE-OF-DUTY INJURIES: COMPENSATION MAY BE AVAILABLE

There is a prevailing myth in law enforcement that the dangers associated with it are all "just part of the job". Being injured by a drunk driver, a negligent driver or in any other manner while in the line of duty, is not "part of the job." Officers certainly face real dangers that are caused by both intentional acts and also by the negligence of others, yet many police officers are not aware of their rights when an on-the-job accident causes a serious injury. The truth is that both Pennsylvania and New Jersey law do not distinguish between public safety officers and the rest of the population when it comes to being compensated for injuries. Police officers have the same rights as every other citizen.

Pennsylvania product liability suit after faulty knee replacement

A request has been made to move a product liability case that was filed in a Pennsylvania Common Pleas Court. Legal representatives for Smith & Nephew, a medical technology company, have asked that the product liability case be transferred to federal court for reasons of diversity of citizenship between the parties and that the damages claimed exceed $75,000. Another medical technology company, Stryker Corp., was also named in the lawsuit.

Injury on someone else's property at Pennsylvania concert

For most people, there are risks every day of being injured on someone else's property. A judge has awarded a woman over $1 million in damages when she was injured on someone else's property. The site of the injury was a concert held at a Pennsylvania venue that featured an unexpected stage dive by the lead singer of the performing band.

If a student suffers a sports injury, must a school accommodate?

A few weeks ago, we discussed the tragic death of a young athlete and the battle his family faced when trying to hold his university accountable. The man suffered a serious head injury while playing football for the school, and his parents sued for wrongful death. The result of that case depended on who was responsible for the brain injury. What happens, however, when a person survives a brain injury but needs special accommodations in school because of it? Does the school have to agree?
