The FDA Medical Device Approval Process
Defective medical devices that are implanted inside the body can result in physical injuries that can sometimes be life-threatening and which can also cause excruciating pain and have a significant negative impact on the quality of life. The trauma often associated with these defective devices can lead to massive unforeseeable medical expenses and economic losses. According to a 2011 study published by a health research group, between 2005 and 2009, 113 medical devices were subject to recall and 80 of those made it to the market through the 510(k) process.
Texas Drivers Are The Third Worst
A recent study by a company that compares auto insurance rates attempted to rate all 50 states' driving records by looking at statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in a number of different categories, including the accident fatality rate, the number of fatal accidents involving failure to obey traffic signals, wear seatbelts or maintain a valid license; and the number of fatalities involving speeding, careless driving and drunk driving, as well as the fatality rates involving bicycles and pedestrians. When they added all of the scores together, Texas scored a solid third, meaning we have the third-worst drivers in the country.
Dangers of Drowning for Adults and Children
Negligence involving water hazards may cause serious injury or death in many different ways; perhaps a school with a swimming-related physical education class doesn't provide enough supervision, or a spa doesn't maintain its equipment to manufacturers' standards or inspect it often enough. Obviously, death is a major risk from drowning, but there is also a potential for serious injury, including brain damage, which is often caused from the lack of oxygen endured by drowning victims.
Why Are Motorcycle Accidents So Deadly?
The devastation experienced by a motorcyclist in an accident is usually far worse than any other motor vehicle accident, mostly because they are not protected by a steel cage surrounding them and keeping them safe and they are smaller than everything else on the road. Motorcycle accident fatalities are roughly 30 times more likely than deaths in passenger cars. The number of deaths from motorcycle accidents is been trending up for years, with the number of fatalities in 2014 being more than double the number in 1997.

Electrocution in the Texas Workplace
Electrocution in the workplace usually comes from employer negligence on some level. It can be caused by frayed or old wires or loose connectors, machines that have not been properly grounded or wires that are improperly placed, such as under carpets or under equipment.
