Corpus Christi Refinery Accident Lawyer

October 22, 2012 @ 01:26 PM -- by

Corpus Christi refinery accident lawyers need to understand the causes of refinery accidents. Because of the many dangers involved in working at oil refineries, there are many important safety protocols and procedures which have to be followed. Often highly experienced and professional workers follow the rules and do everything right, but are still seriously injured at work. This may be due to poor working conditions, faulty equipment, or improperly trained coworkers.   

Texas NuvaRing Lawyer

September 13, 2012 @ 02:14 PM -- by

As a Texas NuvaRing lawyer, I am following the developments in the litigation of this medical device. NuvaRing is a non-biodegradable, flexible, latex-free vaginal ring which has a combination of the hormones estrogen and progestin. Etonogestrel, the active metabolite of desogestrel, is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring (female) sex hormone progesterone.

The NuvaRing vaginal contraceptive ring was originally developed by Organon, which is a Dutch pharmaceutical company. Organon received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration to sell NuvaRing device in the United States on October 3, 2001. Interestingly, in October 2003, The New England Journal of Medicine addressed research indicating that desogestrel, when taken orally, can significantly increase a person’s risk of blood clots. However, by 2007, approximately 1,500,000 women were NuvaRing around the world.

Texas Bard IVC filter lawyer

August 30, 2012 @ 11:42 AM -- by

As a Corpus Christi and Texas Bard IVC filter lawyer, I continue to stay informed about problems with these medical devices. Inferior vena cava ("IVC") filters are small umbrella-like devices which are used in persons who have a risk of pulmonary embolism, but cannot use various anticoagulation medications. The IVC filter is a safety net which is put in the inferior vena cava, which is a large vein. The inferior vena cava moves deoxygenated blood from the body’s lower extremities to the upper part of the body. This filter is designed to catch blood clots forming in the lower body prior to their travel to the lungs, where they may become dangerous pulmonary emboli. 

Texas GranuFlo Lawyer

August 17, 2012 @ 01:13 PM -- by

As a Corpus Christi Texas Granuflo lawyer, I am closely following the recent developments of this medical product. GranuFlo and Naturalyte are the most widely prescribed dry acid products currently being used in dialysis. Granuflo is a powder which has an ingredient which the body converts into bicarbonate. Essentially, bicarbonate is a chemical buffer which keeps the blood from becoming either to acidic or to basic. Because lots of doctors were not warned and did not know of the higher levels of bicarbonate present in the patient’s bloodstream, these doctors did not take the higher levels into account when they prescribed additional bicarbonate. This bicarbonate overdose has unfortunately caused a 6 to 8 fold increase in cardiac arrest, heart attack, and other severe and catastrophic cardiovascular injuries. 

Corpus Christi Ocella lawyer

July 03, 2012 @ 12:02 PM -- by

As a Corpus Christi and Brownsville Ocella and Yaz lawyer, I have been following recent developments with this medication. Yaz and Yasmin are birth control pills which are made by Bayer Healthcare. Ocella, the generic brand, is distributed and marketed by Barr Laboratories, Inc. Both Yasmin and Yaz contain drospirenone, which will cause increases in blood potassium levels. The United States Food & Drug Administration has warned Bayer that these higher serum potassium levels can be dangerous. Too much serum potassium can cause a person to have "hyperkalemia." Hyperkalemia may heart rhythm disturbances, including pauses, extrasystolies, and bradycardia. If left untreated, hyperkalemia can be fatal and lead to strokes, heart attacks, and blood clots if it is not treated.

Corpus Christi Pradaxa Lawyer

May 25, 2012 @ 12:52 PM -- by

As a Corpus Christi Pradaxa lawyer, I am aware of the many complications with this medication.  Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate) was approved by the Food & Drug Administration as a medication for reducing the risk of stroke in persons who experience non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Pradaxa is a prescription blood thinner which was made to reduce the risk of blood clots and strokes. Pradaxa interferes with thrombin, which is the body’s main clotting agent, and thus prevents blood clot formation. Pradaxa is given to patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) which is not caused by heart valve problems. 

Corpus Christi electrocution lawyer

March 28, 2012 @ 01:32 PM -- by

As a Corpus Christi electrocution lawyer, I am aware of the terrible injuries which occur when one is electrocuted. Indeed, some very horrible personal injuries occur when there is an electrical accident. The electricity which goes through a person’s body may disrupt nerves and the brain’s motor controls, causing horrific consequences. Also, serious burns and sometimes death are a result of electrocution accidents. These electrical accidents sometimes cause long term personal injuries which may affect vital organs in the body, including the heart, nervous system and brain. 

Corpus Christi Burn Lawyer

As a Corpus Christi burn injury lawyer, I am aware of the numerous causes of severe burns. Some of these may include:

   Industrial fuel explosions, often at the job site,

   Chemical burns at work, at homework or on construction or work sites,

   Electrical explosions,

   Gas explosions,

   Pipeline explosions,

   Defective product issues dealing with barbecues, stoves or heaters,

   Defective industrial products,

   Defective candles,

   Fires in homes, motels, apartments or offices, and

   Burns caused by improperly exposed marked wires, both above and below ground. 

Corpus Christi trucking accident lawyer

March 14, 2012 @ 01:13 PM -- by

As a Corpus Christi trucking accident lawyer, I keep abreast of the issues involving eighteen wheeler accidents. Corpus Christi and the surrounding area is experiencing explosive growth with the recent Eagle Ford Shale drilling. This has brought numerous eighteen wheelers and trucks to the area. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of accidents because of this increase in traffic. 

Texas Jones Act Lawyer

January 25, 2012 @ 02:08 PM -- by

As a Texas Jones Act lawyer, I study the details of the Jones Act regularly. This maritime law is named after Senator Wesley Jones of Washington state, who was the author of the Act. Because of the Jones Act, injured seafarers have the legal right to obtain fair and just financial compensation for injuries they suffer because of the negligence of another or because the vessel was unseaworthy. The Act is titled the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, but it is now known as the Jones Act, after its author and sponsor. 

Texas Risperdol lawyer

January 23, 2012 @ 12:18 PM -- by

As a Texas Risperdol lawyer, I am aware of the numerous problems with the side effects of this medication. Risperdal is a drug prescribed for bipolar mania and schizophrenia. Risperdal interferes with the communication of nerves in the brain. Risperdol releases neurotransmitters in the brain which helps the nerves to communicate with each other. These neurotransmitters attach to the receptors of nearby nerves, which causes changes in the cells which have receptors. 

Houston Cruise Ship Accident Lawyer

January 16, 2012 @ 02:39 PM -- by

As a Houston cruise ship accident lawyer, I represent passengers and crewmembers who are injured due to negligence. Just recently, a major cruise ship accident occurred off the coast of Italy. The owners of the Costa Concordia, a $450,000,000 cruise ship which ran aground and partially sank near Giglio, a small island about 18 miles off the Tuscan Coast of Italy, and killing at least six people, has said that human error by its commander caused the mishap. The Costa Concordia is 5 years old and cost $570,000,000 to build. The ship has state-of-the-art navigation equipment. The ship apparently struck a rock and rolled over on its side in shallow water on January 16, 2012. There were over 3,000 passengers, 120 of which were American, and over 1,000 crewmembers aboard. 

United States cruise ship injury lawyer

January 03, 2012 @ 03:05 PM -- by

As a United States cruise ship injury lawyer, I handle cases dealing with injuries to both passengers and crewmembers. Cruise ship cases often have difficult and challenging legal issues for the lawyers in personal injury matters. For instance, cruise ship tickets have a forum selection clause which restricts where an injury lawsuit may be brought. Thus, an injured passenger must submit to the jurisdiction of the state where the cruise ship company has its corporate offices. This is usually in Miami, Florida. I typically work on these cases with local lawyers in Miami.
