Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 22, 2014 – A recent wrongful death case in New Jersey revealed that impaired driving does not always involve driving while under the influence of alcohol. “Daniel Everett, the professional truck driver involved, was driving while impaired, but not because he was drunk. His erratic blood sugar levels made him drive in a similarly erratic manner. His 80,000-pound truck pushed a car off the road into a lake, and its driver drowned,” outlined Austin injury lawyer, Bobby Lee.  Everett was also involved in two other accidents earlier that day. The truck driver first rear-ended […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 17, 2014 – High-speed police chases almost always cause serious collateral damage. This Texas case is a prime example. “This collision took place in League City and killed six. Three of the dead were part of a larger family, and so two young teens were left without a mother, father and brother,” recalled Bobby Lee, an Austin personal injury attorney not involved in the case.  A suspected drunk driver rammed the family’s Honda Accord head-on while traveling at close to 100 mph. The driver and passenger fleeing police were killed along with a relative […]

Chicago, IL (Law Firm Newswire) October 16, 2014 – According to a new study, even mild cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect the cognition and brain matter of patients. Past research has focused extensively on severe cases of TBI, but there have been fewer studies completed on moderate to mild cases. However, mild and moderate cases make up about 90 percent of the total number of brain injuries caused by trauma, and the new research shows that even mild cases can have lasting effects. “Brain injuries are different from other types of injuries that one may sustain as […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) September 30, 2014 – Is a working employee’s distracted driving an employer’s responsibility? “This is one of those discussions that tends to come up when a company employee like a trucker or cab driver is involved in an accident. Was the employee driving while distracted? Did the employee’s driving cause the accident? What role does an employer play in such a situation?” said Bobby Lee, an Austin injury attorney. Recently, a high-profile comedian was seriously injured when a truck crashed into the back of a limo bus. One person was killed, and several others were […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) September 22, 2014 – The latest clinical findings indicate that if a child only sustains a loss of consciousness without any other signs of head trauma, he or she may not need a CT scan. “Researchers from the UC Davis Health System and Boston Children’s Hospital have released the results of a study involving over 40,000 children who arrived at emergency rooms across the nation. If children only sustained a loss of consciousness, but showed no other head trauma signals, they were not likely to have serious brain injuries. Accordingly, those without other head injury […]

Rockville Centre, NY (Law Firm Newswire) August 29, 2014 – A new study shows that physicians are prescribing Pradaxa, Xarelto, and Apixaban in higher numbers than ever, notwithstanding research linking these blood-thinning drugs to potentially fatal adverse side effects. According to an analysis published in the American Journal of Medicine, physicians have been prescribing newer anticoagulants such as Pradaxa, Xarelto, and Apixaban to treat patients with atrial fibrillation, instead of older drugs such as the popular warfarin. An editorial that accompanies the study acknowledges that “there is no antidote to reverse the anticoagulant effect with these new drugs in the […]

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) August 21, 2014 – Despite the thousands of lawsuits against the makers of transvaginal mesh slings, the devices are still in use. “As more and more women file medical negligence lawsuits against the makers of transvaginal mesh slings, it would seem sensible to take them off the market. Such a decision would not be unusual for an allegedly defective product, but it does not seem that its manufacturers are interested in making it,” said Bobby Lee, an Austin lawyer who litigates transvaginal mesh lawsuits. In one Oregon case, the victim no longer wants to get […]

According to FiercePharma, “The Germany-based company forecasts revenues will be down for the year as well, but it says by getting its house in order, its finances can improve after that.
