One of the leading causes of fatalities in America is related to vehicular accidents. An alarming percentage of these accidents are due to defective tires. Whatever your form of private transport – tires remain an imperative part, no matter what.

Your tires maintain constant exposure to the actual, proper road and a defective tire could be the cause of an accident that, at the very least, would be costly in a financial way or could cost lives. A manufacturer could broadcast a years old tire as new and that alone could mean some devastating results. Many people are made to withstand extreme consequence due to defective tire-caused vehicular accidents. If you have found yourself in a situation where you have been severely inconvenienced due to a defective tire, you are liable to pursue legal assistance.

A lot of the cases that involve defective tires are because the malfunction caused a car accident that now requires an unprecedented cost for repairs from the victim. Sometimes, accidents of this nature involve additional medical expenses and cost for insurance. There is nothing to be done to reverse the damage done after any vehicular accident occurs but hold the one responsible accountable for their actions.

Manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility towards their consumers to provide only the very best in their products in order to assure mass satisfaction and, more importantly, safety for their customers. Should anything wrong occur as a lack of preparation or care, then they need to pay the victim the financial compensation that the complainant deserves. If the proper standard is not met due to negligence or malicious intent, you are warranted to file a formal complaint of defective tires against the guilty party.

Should you be in this most unfortunate situation, it is advisable for you to seek the best legal option available to you immediately.

Talcum Powder Dangers

Posted by on Oct 6, 2014 in Dangerous Products | 0 comments

To treat diaper rash and minor irritations on infants’ bottoms, nannies, nurses, and mothers usually use a silky white powder that is developed from talc (or magnesium silicate), a naturally-occurring mineral made up of magnesium, oxygen and silicon. Besides the very popular Johnson’s Baby Powder, which contains talcum powder, talc is also used as a component in foot powders, medicated powders, facial powders, perfumed powders, blush products, deodorant powders, sanitary & incontinence pads and many others. In fact, talcum powder has been a fixture in majority of American nurseries and bathrooms due to its soothing substance and the absence of warning to the public about its possible dangerous effect, especially to babies and women.

In 1971 a warning was issued regarding the development of ovarian cancer in women, who were more frequent users of talcum powder (studies have shown that many women sprinkled talcum powder on sanitary pads and undergarments and used it to dust private parts; diaphragms and condoms were also sprinkled or coated with it).

Ovarian cancer claims the lives of almost 16,000 women in the U.S. every year, making it the fourth deadliest type of cancer in women. According to the website of Williams Kherkher, despite the warnings and studies from medical experts and private organizations (like the Cancer Prevention Coalition, the New York Center for Constitutional Rights, and the International Association for Humanitarian Medicine), though, the US Food and Drug Administration remains unmindful, taking no action – not even the inclusion of the dangers of talc or talcum powder on product labels.

The FDA’s silence remained even after the first baby powder-related ovarian cancer lawsuit was won by the plaintiff in 2013. Presently, class-action filings have been made, especially against Johnson & Johnson, by women who used the giant firm’s product for many years.

A talcum powder lawsuit will not erase or take away any of the victims’ sufferings, but it can provide the compensation that may help the victim receive and afford the costly medical treatment caused by the use of the product.
