When it comes to tracking legal news for the public, we here at LawInfo try our best to stay current on all issues Americans are facing. These range from writing on new laws or law updates such as Deferred Action, significant product recalls such as food products containing Salmonella, tips for finding great local attorneys, and more. One of the topics we absolutely stay on top of is products, drugs, environmental issues and various other issues that can lead to injuries – both physical and monetary. We call these our “Hot Topics” and we link to the most recent news directly in the middle of our homepage on LawInfo.com.
What Are the Most Common Hot Topics?
When consumers are injured en masse it’s usually the result of a large catastrophic event like an earthquake, or as the result of taking a defective medication or having a defective medical device installed.
Prescription drugs are notorious for leading to unexpected or undisclosed side effects that can lead to serious injuries and even death. If you or a loved one is taking a regimen of meds, please bookmark LawInfo’s Harmful Drugs page and make sure to check regularly to determine whether a drug has been recalled, is under investigation, or has lead to serious injuries.
