Apartment residents evacuated as asbestos exposed

Most weeknights one will find the majority of Georgia residents tucked in their beds resting before the next work day. But, when hazmat and health officials knock on the door ordering all apartment residents to vacate because of possible asbestos exposure, the thought of sleep quickly diminishes. In fact, rather than worry about lack of sleep, these residents now have much more to worry about.

Jury awards over $12 million in products liability case

Georgia residents often undergo surgery as a means to alleviate medical problems. They are looking for relief from pain, removal of a concerning mass or other such benefit. With all of the medical precautions and procedures in place, it is generally assumed that the methods and products used within the operating room are safe and will do more good than harm to the individual. When this is not the case, there may be a products liability concern that should be addressed.

"Right to Try" legislation and mesothelioma patients

There is a lot of talk and publicity regarding one's rights. One of the most recent rights addressed is the Georgia resident's "Right to Try." Under this new legislation, terminally ill patients are given the right to try experimental drugs that have not been fully cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). For some mesothelioma patients, this may offer an element of hope.

There are different types of mesothelioma

If you ever worked around asbestos, you may already be aware that it could cause you to develop a rare type of cancer called mesothelioma. Whether a particular person develops this incurable disease depends on numerous factors, but that may not be the most unique characteristic of this particular form of cancer. It could take decades after your exposure to asbestos for you to even know whether you will end up with a diagnosis of this condition.

Children's nasal spray recalled due to products liability concern

As far as most Georgia parents are concerned, their children's health is of primary importance. When a child is sick, the concerned parent will give over-the-counter medication if the illness appears to be a minor one. Additionally, if the child suffers from allergies, doctors often recommend, and parents often give over-the-counter allergy medications to the child. These medications are generally assumed to be safe and free from products liability concerns.
