Defective medical devices spark FDA policy changes for approval

Ohioans who need treatment for medical ailments and conditions will sometimes require the assistance of a medical device. These devices are created and used to improve the person's condition. While many achieve that goal, there is always a chance for there to be defective medical devices that do not do what they are meant to do or even have negative health implications. The Food and Drug Administration is tasked with consumer protection in these areas. Companies have a system in which they will prepare their products to go to market. Given the number of problems with these devices, that system is set for revamping.

Broken water pipe sparks concern about asbestos-related illness

In Ohio and across the nation, there are buildings that were constructed long ago. Current environmental requirements and regulations for building materials were not in place at the time they were built and that can lead to substances, such as asbestos being present. People who live or work in a location where there is asbestos present cannot help but have it in the back of their minds that asbestos-related illness is a possibility. For those who are ill or exhibit symptoms, they might have the right to file a case for compensation due to unwitting asbestos exposure.

A harmless, off-time diversion could lead to truck driver fatigue

When there is a truck accident in Ohio or anywhere in the country, there are a seemingly endless number of reasons for which it could have occurred. Distracted truckers, truckers under the influence, truck driver fatigue, speeding, recklessness and much more are oft-mentioned causes of these crashes. It is not inaccurate to say that these are frequently accurate explanations. However, there are other generally innocent behaviors that could impact truck driver safety. Research is showing that truck drivers could become more dangerous after watching Monday Night Football.

Drivers speeding to destinations could increase truck accidents

Large trucks are a constantly going to and through Ohio. Since ground transport is such an integral part of the economy providing jobs, goods and services, this is a good thing. However, the size of these trucks, the speeds at which they travel, and the frequency in which truck accidents occur is understandably worrisome to those who share the road with them. Researchers seek to learn why these crashes happen and devise ways to prevent them.

Fear of asbestos-related illness sparked by discovery at school

The debate over the dangers of asbestos seemed to have been settled long ago. However, the political climate has again sparked questions as to how dangerous it truly is and whether it can still be used for certain purposes. Still, for people in Ohio and across the nation, the mere mentioning of the word sparks concern that exposure will eventually lead to asbestos-related illness, significant health problems, and almost certain death. Understanding what steps to take when there is a belief that there was asbestos exposure is imperative in a medical and legal sense.
