Last month, it was made known that Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, the companies responsible for manufacturing the blood thinner Xarelto, are pushing for additional FDA approvals for their drug. Xarelto is already being prescribed to patients to treat blood clots, such as deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolus (PE), that occur more frequently in patients who have had certain types of surgeries, like knee and hip replacements. Now, the companies want the FDA to approve the use of the drug in stroke patients. 

Bayer and Johnson & Johnson are pushing for this new approval, even after lawsuits against them have already been consolidated against them in two U.S. courts. Currently, Xarelto is leading sales and has captured the largest share of the market, raking in $1.5 billion in sales in 2013 alone. By soliciting more approvals, the companies are essentially attempting to increase profits, even while hundreds of patients hurt by Xarelto are taking legal action against them. A new trial, called the NAVIGATE-ESUS study, will include 7,000 patients and will focus on whether or not Xarelto is a better and safer alternative to aspirin for patients susceptible to strokes. 

 

Legal Commentary

A freak accident occurred this Tuesday morning in New York City that left one female pedestrian severely injured. A massive construction-saw blade came loose at a construction site located in Hell’s Kitchen near Ninth Avenue and West 48th Street, and sliced the woman’s leg. According to witnesses, the saw disk disconnected from the machine at almost 60 miles per hour, hitting a curb and flying 10 feet into the air before hurting the unnamed female. Although she suffered deep lacerations, she is stable and is expected to make a full recovery. 

An investigation conducted by the city’s Department of Design and Construction is investigating how a blade that is used to cut concrete could possibly become disconnected and harm a passerby. Until the investigation is concluded, the site’s contractors have been directed to stop using any other saws until all equipment is inspected. 

EMTs transport the woman who was struck in this freak accident by a blade-saw:

Legal Commentary
If an investigation finds that the site contractor or employees were acting in a negligent manner that would have caused such an accident, the most pertinent legal matter to pursue is a civil case. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of workplace, and motor vehicle accident tragedies. The injured female in this situation should consult with an attorney to file a suit against the responsible party. A successful civil claim will enable the victims and the victims’ families to cover all of the medical and/or final expenses. A successful claim can also cover time lost from work and pain and suffering caused by the injuries received from the accident. Although no monetary value can ever compensate for the trauma and injuries inflicted, a successful claim will allow an individual to be unburdened by medical expenses. If you or a loved one was affected by this or a similar incident, contact the experienced attorneys at Fears | Nachawati Law Firm by sending an email to mn@fnlawfirm.com or by calling our office at 1.866.705.7584.

On December 11, 2013 two school buses from the Athens Independent School District (AISD) collided after school on Wednesday. Both buses were filled with unsuspecting students who were taken to the emergency room to be evaluated after the accident. Unfortunately the driver of one of the buses needed to be transported to East Texas Medical Center because of injuries.

Legal Commentary
Automobile accidents are very common and extremely unfortunate for those involved. However they seem to be even more tragic when they involve innocent children–especially two entire buses full. In this scenario a potential civil case could benefit those families with children who may have received injuries from the accident. Although it is not yet known who was at fault in this accident, the victims’ families could file a civil claim against the school district. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families involved in motor vehicle accidents. The families of these children and the drivers should consider consulting with an experienced attorney to file a personal injury claim against either the school district or the person at fault. A successful civil claim will ensure the injured children and/or driver(s) will receive support for the unexpected medical expenses they incurred and for the pain and suffering from their injuries. It will enable the families of the victims to pay off these costly medical bills without being burdened by out-of-pocket expenses.

Just after midnight on Tuesday December 3, 2013 a 45 year old man, Ignacio Mesa was attacked by three pit bulls on Crump Street near 32nd Street in Forth Worth (the approximate area of attack is shown in the map below). The attack left Mr. Mesa hospitalized from several bite wounds. His 26-year old daughter, in an effort to help him was bitten by these aggressive dogs as well. Officials think Mr. Mesa may have been attacked as he was out searching for his own dog. Interestingly enough, according to a report from the United States Postal Service, Dallas is ranked as one of the worst cities for dog attacks. Although this report was specifically regarding mail carriers, it demonstrates the possible danger of dogs from simply walking through a neighborhood. Because of the accident officials had to shoot the three pit bulls.

The Black and Decker Corporation is undergoing a series of lawsuits from consumers claiming received injuries caused by a table saw. The company is alleged to designed, making, and selling a defective product. According to the lawsuit, the saw is said to not be equipped with a device called a riving knife—a small piece of metal that reduces the chances of the wood jerking back and pulling the operator’s hands into the blades of the saw. Because of the lack of this device in these Black and Decker table saws, many have had severe and permanent injuries to their fingers and hands from unexpected contact with the saw blade.

Legal Commentary

While tragic, hit-and-run accidents occur quite frequently. In these situations, two corresponding legal matters arise: a possible criminal case and a possible civil case. Report indicate that Mr. Pereanez is already in custody. Criminal charges will likely be brought against Mr. Pereanez once the case is turned over to the district attorney.
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of hit-and-run accidents, as well as all other forms of automobile accidents. These victims should most certainly consult with an attorney to file personal injury claims against Mr. Pereanez. A successful civil claim that is pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will generously compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages from time missed from work.
