Products liability news: Class I recall issued by Cook Medical

Cook Medical Inc. manufactures a device used primarily in patients suffering from a blunt traumatic aortic injury, here in Georgia and elsewhere. The company then received reports of adverse health consequences to patients in whom the Zenith Alpha Thoracic Endovascular Graft was implanted. The company could be facing significant products liability claims, especially since the Food and Drug Administration has labeled this recall as Class I.

What happens after the shock of a mesothelioma diagnosis?

The word "disbelief" may come close to summing up how you feel after receiving such a dire diagnosis from your Georgia doctor. Perhaps you knew that being exposed to asbestos could one day come back to haunt you, but as the years turned into decades, you hoped you had dodged that particular bullet. Unfortunately, medical science has discovered that the incubation period for mesothelioma ranges anywhere from 25 to 50 years. By the time you received your diagnosis, you may have all but forgotten about your risk.

What Causes Mesothelioma?

If a doctor recently gave you or a loved one a diagnosis of mesothelioma, you most likely have many questions. Can this be treated? If so, what does treatment involve? What is the long-term prognosis for someone with the condition? And finally, what causes this disease?

Slip and fall incidents can lead to terrible injuries

Premises liability is an area of law that covers a wide range of injurious events or dangerous conditions. For example, if a restaurant or club doesn't provide adequate or well-trained security and an incident occurs that leaves people injured, then a premises liability lawsuit may be in order. Similarly, if a heavily damaged sidewalk causes someone to suffer injuries, or if a store owner fails to clean off a dangerous condition in front of their store, then they could be held accountable via a premises liability lawsuit.
