Truck accident statistics stagnant even with new ELD rules

With the number of large trucks that are on the road, there is a natural fear on the part of Ohioans that they will be involved in a truck accident. Their size and speed is compounded by the concern that truckers will be distracted behind the wheel, drive under the influence, and flout the rules for how much time they can spend on the road leading to drowsiness. Rules are in place to reduce the risk, but as one recent study shows, the mandate for truckers to have an electric logging device has not reduced the number of crashes.

FDA Warning: Fluoroquinolones and Aortic Dissections or Aortic Aneurysms

In December 2018, the FDA added new warnings to fluoroquinolone antibiotics after receiving reports of rare but serious ruptures or tears in the main artery of the body, called the aorta. These tears, called aortic dissections, or ruptures of an aortic aneurysm, can lead to dangerous bleeding or death. These serious side effects were seen in patients who had been treated with systemic fluoroquinolones given by mouth or through an injection.

Asbestos-related illness a concern after classroom discovery

With the understanding of the dangers of asbestos and asbestos-related illness when the substance is found, Ohioans and people across the nation are understandably surprised when reports of an asbestos discovery come out. Unfortunately, it happens quite frequently throughout the U.S. People who were exposed to asbestos when it was considered a miraculous discovery can have various medical issues that inevitably result in death. Considering the knowledge of its risk, it is a concern when there is a chance of exposure. This is especially true when it is found in a school. Those who think they might have been exposed at any time and are afflicted with asbestos-related illness should know they have the right to consider legal action.

Car and truck accidents could be linked to handheld devices

When out on the road in Ohio and across the nation, the concern about distracted drivers is a realistic one. Because the growth of smartphones and handheld devices has grown exponentially in recent years, it can be an irresistible temptation to check it repeatedly. A distracted truck driver is especially dangerous because of the size of their vehicles, the speeds they travel and how much damage they can do if there is a crash. Paying attention to various studies of how distracted driving behaviors are impacting road safety is useful for those who have been in an accident and are preparing for a legal filing to seek compensation.

A little-discussed potentially life changing injury: Eye trauma

Every part of your body has vulnerabilities. No matter how hard you try to keep yourself from suffering an injury, you may not have any choice in the matter if someone else does something negligent and you happen to get caught up in it. For instance, you can't plan for a car accident. You can do as much as you can to keep yourself safe, but it may not be enough.
