Distracted Driver Causes Accident on I-65 in Indianapolis, Indiana

Pictured above: the resulting traffic caused by the distracted driver's accident 

On Wednesday morning, a distracted driver of a semi-truck caused a messy wreck in Indianapolis, Indiana. The accident occurred on Interstate 65 near 38th Street. The unidentified driver was heading south on I-65 when he veered off the road and drifted onto the shoulder of the highway and into an abandoned car. Officials say that he had taken his eyes off the road in order to change the radio station. Unfortunately, the semi the driver had been driving was carrying 17,000 pounds of the chemical potassium hydroxide and burst into flames on impact. 

Officials are using the accident to warn other drivers on the road how easy it is to get distracted while driving. Although no one was injured, hazmat cleanup crews were forced to shut down the southbound lanes of I-65 for three hours in order to clean up the spillage. It took a total of ten hours for the crews to finishing cleaning up the mess. For other drivers on the road, this meant additional hours of traffic. According to officials, the driver of the semi could be facing charges after an investigation.

Should Patients on Xarelto Undergo More Frequent Blood Monitoring?

When Xarelto was first introduced to the general pharmaceutical company, it was touted as a much more convenient alternative to traditional blood thinners like warfarin. The drug was originally prescribed to patients who had undergone knee and hip replacement surgery and who were at a higher risk of blood clots following those procedures. The advantage, Bayer Healthcare claimed, was that patients would not have to be subjected to weekly and inconvenient blood testing while using Xarelto. They aggressively marketed the drug as a "one size fits all" solution to traditional means of blood testing. 

Unfortunately, however, many patients have suffered unfortunate side effects after taking the drug. Because doctors supposedly do not have to regularly monitor their patients on Xarelto, they are not as in tune to how their patients are doing. Many patients on the drug have experienced serious bleeding side effects that include internal and excessive bleeding. Unlike warfarin, Xarelto has no antidote to speak of and patients who experience issues may be at risk of hemorrhaging or death if they do not receive immediately medical care. Although not a perfect substitution, warfarin usage requires that patients undergo regular testing, which could more easily alert doctors to any potential problems before they occur. This undoubtedly brings up the issue of whether doctors who prescribe Xarelto should monitor their patients more frequently in order to prevent any possible complications from arising. 

Legal Commentary
Xarelto attorneys within our firm are studying, examining and investigating current Xarelto claims on behalf of people or families injured by the drug. Some of the side effects include hemorrhaging, internal bleeding, stroke and or death. If you or a loved one has experienced any side effects while taking Xarelto, contact our Xarelto lawyers to discuss the facts of your potential case.

An unfortunate accident on Sunday morning in Fort Worth, Texas resulted in the death of five people and injuries to several others. The accident happened early Sunday morning on the westbound lanes of I-30 near the Oakland Boulevard exit.

The accident resulted in 5 deaths at the scene of the accident. Additionally, two others were hospitalized in critical condition and another suffered serious injuries. Ten others had minor injuries, including the driver of the 18-wheeler. It is still unclear what exactly caused the crash but Fort Worth police are conducting a full investigation.

Fourth Megabus-Related Crash in Indiana Leaves Several Injured

Pictured above: the Megabus in question after the crash 

The safety record of the low-fare carrier Megabus is coming under increased scrutiny after its latest accident in Indiana. Early Monday morning, a double-decker Megabus was traveling from Chicago to Atlanta when it crashed on I-65 near Edinburg. The driver of the bus, Kimberly Lane, was driving south in the left lane at around 5:30am and failed to stop at a construction project. The bus she was driving struck the rear of a semitrailer truck that was stopped, which then set off a chain reaction crash. 

In total, 19 people were hurt as a result of the accident. This if the fourth time in six months that a bus operated by Megabus has been involved in a crash with injuries on an Indiana highway. Although known for their economical prices and consistent routes, Megabus has been involved in 22 crashes since June of 2013, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Additionally, their drivers tend to be removed from service at a higher rate, 8.7,  than the national average, 5.5. Lane underwent a portable breath test and alcohol has been ruled out as a factor in this crash. Authorities say that the bus will go through a mechanical inspection later this week to make sure that mechanical problems were not a contributing factor. 

Legal Commentary
Although uncommon, bus accidents like this one can result in serious injuries. With many more passengers, bus drivers have the added responsibility of ensuring that everyone gets to their destination safely.

Deadly Chain Reaction Crash Results in Two Deaths near Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri

Pictured above: the scene of the accident 

On Wednesday, April 10th, an accident involving a semi truck and several cars occurred in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. The accident happened around 3pm on the westbound lanes of Highway 54 near Route W in Miller County. Robin L. Dinwiddie, 50, and her daughter Kenda L. O'Leary were driving in a 2004 Pontiac Vibe when it was rear ended by a 2007 Freightliner tractor-trailer. The driver of that semi, Daniel Burch, set off a chain reaction crash that, in total, involved eight vehicles. 

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Dinwiddie and her daughter O'Leary were killed at the scene. Four other people, including Burch, were taken to nearby hospitals for the treatment of minor to serious injuries. Burch has also been arrested on two counts of second-degree involuntary manslaughter, along with careless and imprudent driving. This accident could have likely been prevented had it not been for Burch's irresponsible driving.

Joint Status Conference for Transvaginal Mesh Manufacturers May Lead to More Settlements

In a recent pretrial order, the Honorable Joseph R. Goodwin of the Southern District of West Virginia has set a joint status conference for June 2nd of this year. The conference has ordered some of the largest manufacturers of transvaginal mesh and bladder sling plastic devices to appear before Judge Goodwin. The list of manufacturers named include American Medical Systems (AMS), CR Bard, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Ethicon. Neomedic has been the only company to not be called to appear. 

Plaintiffs and their lawyers hope that this recent move will push manufacturers of transvaginal mesh devices to try and settle their respective cases before June. According to court records, Judge Goodwin is currently over seeing more than 70,000 mesh-related cases. As the number of lawsuits increase, it's important that these current cases be settled quickly. Otherwise, many of them will be remanded and sent back to their federal districts for individuals trials, a process that will continue to flood the court system.

For the women who are suffering from pain after having had a transvaginal mesh device implanted, this means waiting even longer for compensation for their pain and suffering. These devices originally came under fire because of the numerous negative side effects that they developed as a result of these devices. Some of the unfortunate side effects that women experience include internal injuries, urinary problems and pain. Many women have had to undergo costly and painful revision surgery to address these issues. Hopefully this most recent move will speed along current cases so that plaintiffs who have been hurt by a mesh device can find some recompense. 

Legal Commentary
The complications caused by these devices have left many women to suffer with horrid recoveries, large medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing pain. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of the complications from the transvaginal mesh device. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these problems because of an implanted or removed Mentor transvaginal mesh or sling, we encourage you to consult with one of our transvaginal mesh attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will help compensate the victims for the costly medical expenses, and hopefully for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. Further questions can be directed to the Fears | Nachawati Law Firm by emailing the lead TV Mesh lawyer, Majed Nachawati at mn@fnlawfirm.com, or by calling our office at 1.866.705.7584.

Drunk Driver Kills Young Couple in Providence, Massachusetts

Pictured above: an officer near the the young couple's destroyed vehicle 

Over the Easter weekend, a deadly wrong-way crash resulted in the death of a young couple. The accident occurred early Sunday morning on Route 6 in Providence, Massachusetts. Joel Norman, 24, was driving under the influence and driving the wrong way when he crashed into Tiffany Sical, 21, and Bryan Rodriguez-Solis, 23, resulting in their deaths. He himself was severely injured and had to physically appear in court in a wheelchair.

He was arraigned at the ACI Intake Center on two counts of driving under the influence, death resulting, and two counts of driving to endanger, death resulting. His bail has been set at $100,000 with surety. According to the prosecutor assigned to this case, Sical had attempted to avoid Weber's car, having been at full skid for over 60 feet. Unfortunately, Norman's recklessness resulted in the senseless death of the young couple, who leave behind a 5-year-old daughter. 

Massachusetts is currently working on a new system that would include warnings to drivers if there is a driver driving the wrong way or in the same lane. Currently, Route 6 is on the list to receive these improvements. On the road, there is only one "do not enter" sign and two "wrong way" signs. Although obviously frustrated, the families of the young couple hope that these improvements will save the lives of others.

Xarelto Lawsuits Increasing as More Patients Develop Negative Side Effects

This year has seen a significant increase in the number of law suits being brought against the manufacturers of Xarelto, Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Corp.. Individuals and their families allege that they have faced harmful negative side effects after taking the drug and that Johnson & Johnson and Bayer knew this, but still aggressively marketed their blockbuster drug to consumers. Dozens so far have filed lawsuits in a California federal court. 

When Xarelto was first introduced to the market, doctors and patients quickly flocked to it. Because this particular blood thinner requires little to no monitoring after a patient is prescribed it, it seemed like a great alternative. More traditional anticoagulants require frequently, weekly monitoring by a doctor. However, when patients are monitored more regularly and undergo frequent blood testing, it is easier for a doctor to spot any potential issues more quickly. For that reason, the hands-off approach that occurs after patients begin taking Xarelto puts patients more at risk of internal, uncontrollable bleeding. 

As patients are being made more aware of these potentially deadly side effects, they are increasingly resorting to the courts to seek compensation. In December of 2014, almost two dozen lawsuits were consolidated in Louisiana. In January of this year, there was a creation of a new mass tort in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas. Plaintiffs allege that the manufacturers of Xarelto did not properly warn patients of the potentially deadly complications that could result from taking the drug. 

Legal Commentary
Xarelto attorneys within our firm are studying, examining and investigating current Xarelto claims on behalf of people or families injured by the drug. Some of the side effects include hemorrhaging, internal bleeding, stroke and or death. If you or a loved one has experienced any side effects while taking Xarelto, contact our Xarelto lawyers to discuss the facts of your potential case.

Zimmer Persona Knee May Result in Costly, Painful Revision Surgeries

Zimmer, one of the most prolific knee manufacturers, has really come under fire after recalling all of the lots and sizes of its Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate/Persona TM Tibia. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was posted in March of this year and stated that the parts had been voluntarily recalled due to reports of radiolucent lines and loosening. 

Not all medical devices are required to undergo human clinical trials and formal safety and efficacy reviews if the devices is deemed sufficiently similar to an already approved device. These medical devices can instead go through a expedited process called the 501(k) process. The Zimmer devices in question went through this quick process and therefore were not adequately tested before they were introduced to the market. 

These hurried processes have consequences for patient. In this case, patients may have had to undergo revision surgery after having these particular Zimmer knee parts implanted. Revision surgeries may unfortunately involve multiple surgeries, which in turn are more costly and can be more risky than the original implant surgery. These types of surgeries can result in several painful complications as well; many times, patients do not return to their condition before their implant and their recovery may be much longer than the original surgery. 

When dangerous products like the Zimmer Knee are recalled, patients are not the only ones who suffer. They will have to pay for revision surgery, physical therapy and future medical care. They may also suffer professionally and personally, since they have to take time away from their careers and families. For that reason, it's important to demand the proper compensation. 

If you or someone you love has had any of the lots or sizes C-J of the Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate implanted as part of a knee replacement surgery and have experienced pain, loosening, discomfort or have had to undergo additional revision surgery to fix these problems, you may be able to pursue a claim against Zimmer Persona. Individuals who have had problems with these implants are alleging that the company failed to test the design and perform the adequate research required before it was approved for the market.

If you or someone you know has been injured by a recalled or defective product, you deserve to understand the full extent of your legal rights and the compensation you may be entitled to receive. The attorneys at Fears | Nachawati Law Firm have successfully represented hundreds of clients who have been hurt by recalled pharmaceutical devices and products.
