DISTRACTED DRIVING: A RISING HAZARD ON THE ROADS

Stop Distracted Driving

Some traffic accidents are probably unavoidable, the result of bad weather, a mechanical failure, or poor road conditions. But the vast majority of mishaps on the road are preventable. Numerous studies of crash causation, conducted in the United States and elsewhere, have concluded that human error accounts for more than ninety percent of all crashes. Some of the most obvious forms of error include excessive speed and driving while intoxicated.

According to data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,...

UNDERSTANDING THE HOW AND WHY OF A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT

class action logo

A class action is a type of lawsuit in which one or several plaintiffs represent a larger group (or “class”) of people who’ve suffered similar damages. The number of claims involving common damages makes it more efficient to combine them into a single cause of action. Filing a class action lawsuit, instead of numerous individual lawsuits, can benefit a large number of plaintiffs through a single legal action, which saves on costs and court time, prevents inconsistent verdicts, and allows individuals to combine their resources to make their case exponentially stronger. But to get started can be daunting – just...

Payday Loans: A Matter of Life and Debt

Payday Loan Check

The unemployment rate is at the lowest it’s been in decades, but our nation’s economy is still more fragile than many people realize. An estimated eight out of ten American workers — close to 95 million people — are reportedly living paycheck to paycheck, with little in the way of cash reserves to tide them over in the event of a financial emergency.

Payday lending is an undeniably controversial...

baby powder

Thousands of women and their families have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and other talcum powder makers, claiming that using the product led to the development of ovarian cancer. Although the industry has strongly contested such claims, some researchers believe there’s a strong scientific basis for such a link. Questions about the purity of the talc, the possibility of contamination with asbestos, and other concerns have also played a part in the litigation, which has resulted in some sizable plaintiff verdicts — and more questions about just how “healing” consumers’ experience with talc has been...
