One Mistake Shouldn’t Cost You Your License...

As humans we make mistakes. Sometimes they have more serious consequences than other times but they are mistakes either way and we have to pay the price. There is no reason that the punishment should outweigh the crime but in certain circumstances of the law, this can happen. One of the areas of the law where this is prevalent is in DUI cases.

When Your Medication Causes You More Harm Than Good...

Thanks to modern medicine, many illnesses and disabilities that used to be fatal or disruptive to your quality of life are now able to be easily controlled with medication.

Accident Lawyers Might Get You Compensation If…...

If you have been in an accident, you might first go to your insurance company in order to file a claim. However, insurance companies will do anything they can to pay you as little as possible. If you do not feel you are being treated fairly, you will want to look into accident lawyers and what they can do for you. Accident lawyers can help you with your accident or personal injury claims because they know about the insurance industry and how to circumvent the various ways the companies get out of paying rightful claims. Unfortunately, the media has permeated the idea that accident claims are generally frivolous and somehow responsible for high insurance rates. There are certainly frivolous claims out there, but yours is not necessarily one of them and you should not feel guilty for going after what is rightfully yours. Talk to your accident lawyers and make sure they believe you are right to file the claim in the first place. Having that second opinion will help you feel better about your opinion. If you are truly injured, have suffered pain, have damage to your property, have lost time at work, have increased medical bills and so on, you might be able to get compensation from your insurance company or another party through your accident lawyers. You are not trying to make money off of the event, you are simply trying to make up for what you already lost. Insurance companies may not want to pay their claims, but that is why they exist. They have a contract with you and they are responsible for paying you if you have an injury, property damage, or another issue relating to an accident. You have a right to be compensated for those things...

FDA Warning Regarding Surgical Mesh Implants Reads Like a Gruesome Horror Novel...

The update that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued last year regarding surgical mesh implants reads like something straight out of a horror novel. One has to wonder why, in light of continued insistence by the FDA that surgical mesh implant complications are serious and not rare, doctors continue to routinely propose the procedure to repair prolapsed organs in the pelvic area. Especially when the FDA has also reported that surgical mesh implants have not been shown to be any better in repairing prolapses than other less riskier options. Not only has the FDA continually warned medical care providers and potential patients of the dangers inherent to surgical mesh implants, they have urged doctors to acknowledge that organ prolapse could best be treated by other methods. When doctors and patients choose to proceed with the surgery, the FDA insists that doctors adequately warn the patient about the risks involved both in terms of the surgery and for future side effects. Despite the number of patients who have experienced problems with surgical mesh implants, the continued warnings, and the multiple warnings from the FDA, lawsuits continue to be filed in cases involving surgical mesh implants as more and more patients learn that the symptoms they are experiencing following surgical implantation of mesh is the result of mesh erosion which is leading to extreme pain, especially during intercourse, and an inability to perform even the most basic daily activities. Other patients who have agreed to additional surgeries in an attempt to have the eroded mesh removed have continued to experience the debilitating side effects even after multiple surgeries. In addition, patients who are involved in sexual relations with men report that when the mesh has become exposed because of the erosion of the implants, their...

Family Law Courts Can Avert Tragedy...

For most of us, thoughts of family engender warm feelings, happy memories, and thoughts of love, acceptance, and belonging. Unfortunately, however, there are those whose reality does not evoke images or feelings of comfort and security, but of violence, assault, and abuse. In those cases, the law must protect you and your children from further attacks. In Austin, a family law attorney can help any family who considers themselves to be at risk of danger because of another family member to obtain a protective order so that future acts of violence can be averted. Sadly, the public usually learns of violence in a particular family when a horrific tragedy occurs and someone is seriously harmed, or worse, killed. However, Texas law has provisions to help prevent extreme acts of violence within a family. One of those provisions is a protective order that can keep the violent party from having access to members of the family, from having access to firearms, or even from being able to enter the work places of family members. One important thing to consider if you feel threatened by another family member is that your attorney may be able to obtain a protective order for you even if no physical violence has yet occurred. The law recognizes that the best time to prevent any kind of family violence is before it has happened. Consequently, if you feel threatened and have a reasonable fear that you or another family member could be harmed or are in danger, it is possible to get a court-issued protective order against the abusive or violent family member. In addition to keeping the abusive party from having access to you, your children, or other family members, the law requires those who have protective orders against them...
