Summer Safety Tips: Heat Safety

Summer is a time for enjoying the great outdoors with family and friends. However, it’s important to remember that the long, hot days of summer can be dangerous if you don’t take the right precautions. At Cory Watson Attorneys, we are committed to helping victims who have suffered personal injuries and passionate about keeping our communities safe. Have fun, but stay safe this summer with these quick tips. Heatstroke Safety We are more likely to suffer from heatstroke, heat exhaustion, or dehydration during the summer. Spending too much time outdoors can cause the body to overheat. It’s important to recognize the signs of heatstroke, which include nausea, dizziness, and confusion. Stay hydrated by drinking more water than usual and take breaks in the shade to help you stay cool. Food Poisoning Injury According to the CDC, 48 million Americans get food poisoning each year. The warm weather is definitely a target for bacteria, and food-borne illnesses peak in the summer. It’s costly for businesses to keep food at the right temperatures in the heat, and not always obvious when food is contaminated. Make sure that your meal is always clean, cooked well and properly handled. An outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at the Sheraton Atlanta during the busy summer travel season is another reminder that dangerous bacteria can lurk in hotel hot tubs, showers and air-conditioning units. Hot Cars Can Be Deadly Animals need shade and water, just like we do. Moderate their exercise and keep pets indoors when it’s hot. Never leave children or pets in a vehicle, as they can quickly succumb to the heat exposure. Temperatures inside a car can easily reach 140°F to 190°F within 27 minutes. Look before you lock! Worker’s Heat Stress Workers who are exposed to extreme heat or work in hot environments may be at risk of heat stress. Exposure to extreme heat can result in illness and injuries such as serious burns. Workers in outdoor environments such as firefighters, construction workers, farmers, and factory workers are all at risk. Take safety precautions to prevent on the job injuries. Don’t be afraid to get out and enjoy the summer sunshine with your friends and family. Just be sure to be prepared, use common sense, and know when it’s time to take a break in the shade. Any of these summer accidents can cause severe injuries. Don’t wait until it’s too late to contact an Alabama personal injury attorney. You’ll need compensation to cover your recovery costs.

Stay Safe on Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance, set aside for honoring those who have died serving our country. It also marks the unofficial start of the summer season. Many people celebrate the long weekend by going to the beach, lake, or road tripping with family and friends. However, holiday celebrations, crowds, and fun tend to increase the risk of injury, so it’s important to do everything you can to keep yourself and your family safe this Memorial Day Weekend. Don’t Drink and Drive this Memorial Day The three-day weekend is typically filled with family activities, parties with friends, and a traffic-filled drive to the beach. Those plans may also involve alcohol, and there can be devastating consequences if an impaired driver gets behind the wheel. With more drivers on the road, some of whom may be under the influence of alcohol, the risk of being involved in a car accident significantly increases. Remember these simple Memorial Day Weekend safety tips to avoid injuries: Don’t drink and drive, or get in a car with an intoxicated driver Don’t use your cell phone while driving Wear your seat belt and make sure backseat passengers are buckled up Obey posted speed limits, even if you’re in a rush to get to your destination Have a designated driver available to take you home. Even a relatively small amount of alcohol can dangerously impair judgment and affect reaction times Keep these water safety tips in mind if you and your loved ones are enjoying the lake or beach: Holidays are not the best time for beginner boaters to learn how to operate a vessel. Inexperienced operators are among the leading causes of boating crashes in Alabama and Tennessee. New boat operators should participate in boating safety course before heading out on the water. Practice water safety. If you’ll be out on a boat or by the pool, always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved PFD (life jacket), and never leave children unattended. When towing or pulling individuals on tubes or water skis, avoid spending prolonged periods in small areas. Look for calm, open water where boating traffic is light. Don’t drink and operate a boat, watercraft, bike, or engage in activities like swimming that require good judgment and coordination For more information on Memorial Day Weekend water-safety tips from ALEA’s Marine Patrol Division, visit Safe Boating | Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. Remember Our Veterans and Their Families Please remember to give thanks and offer prayers for our fallen soldiers and their loved ones.

Severe Side Effects of BEOVU® Lead to Lifelong Injuries

BEOVU® (Brolucizumab-dbll) entered the market in October 2019 as a new injectable drug treatment for patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD). Wet AMD is a chronic eye disease that can lead to blurred vision and/or blind spots. Those suffering from wet AMD saw this new treatment as a way to better manage or even improve (based on early announcements from BEOVU®’s manufacturer) their eye condition. Unfortunately, dreams of a better future instead brought new horrors to life for several wet AMD patients. BEOVU®’s Side Effects At the outset, the manufacturer Novartis announced the potential for certain side effects, like redness or light sensitivity, for patients who received these eye injection treatments. Unfortunately, additional concerns became evident soon after the drug’s release.  These new concerns were not included on the product label or in the information provided by Novartis to physicians and patients. These new concerns beg the question, “Is BEOVU® safe to use to treat wet AMD?” Uncommon, Yet Significant, Adverse Reactions to BEOVU® Adverse reactions not listed by Novartis upon its release include:  Blindness Intraocular inflammation Retinal artery occlusion Retinal vascular occlusion Retinal vasculitis Retinal vein occlusion Sudden vision loss BEOVU® Product Labels Updated, But Not Soon Enough On June 11, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updated the product labels for BEOVU® to include warnings for adverse reactions like the ones listed above. The drug, however, had already been in use for approximately 8 months, meaning tens of thousands of shots had already been administered without the warnings. Have You Suffered After Receiving BEOVU® Injections? If you or your loved one suffered from an adverse reaction listed above after receiving injections of the BEOVU® drug, then you may be able to pursue a class action personal injury lawsuit against Novartis. And you don’t have to do it alone. Reach out to our nationally recognized law firm today.

Initial 3M Earplugs Verdict: $7.1 Million Awarded

After a five-week trial, a Pensacola jury awarded three former service members a total of $7.1 million in damages in the first bellwether trial of the far-reaching 3M defective military earplugs lawsuit. More than 200,000 active and former service members who used the dual-ended 3M Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2) could receive significant recoveries for the hearing loss-related injuries. This is the first verdict rendered among 3M defective earplug lawsuits, and there are two more bellwether trials scheduled in the coming weeks. Cory Watson Attorneys is investigating cases from current and former service members nationwide who suffered hearing loss and/or tinnitus due to using defective 3M Combat Arms Earplugs. These earplugs were sold to the U.S. military and distributed to thousands, putting soldiers at risk for permanent injuries. The Combat Arms Dual-Ended Earplugs were standard issue equipment for military personnel in all branches from 2003 to 2015. In those 12 years, the earplugs were distributed to thousands in the U.S. military, putting service men and women at risk for permanent hearing loss or tinnitus. The earplugs were too short for proper insertion, causing them to gradually loosen in user’s ears until they were effectively rendered useless. According to the federal complaint, the earplugs “have likely caused thousands of soldiers to suffer significant hearing loss and tinnitus.” According to the VA, “hearing problems—including tinnitus, which is a ringing, buzzing, or other type of noise that originates in the head—are by far the most prevalent service-connected disability among American Veterans.” A whistleblower alleged that 3M knew about design problems as early as 2000, when the earplugs failed to pass safety tests.  3M continued to market and manufacture the dual-ended earplugs.  In July 2018, the Minnesota-based 3M Company agreed to pay a $9 million penalty to the federal government to resolve the whistleblower’s allegations, though the company has admitted no wrongdoing. Learn more about Cory Watson’s efforts to get affected military service members justice here. Thousands of military service members who suffered significant hearing loss and tinnitus choose Cory Watson to handle their case against 3M. Our experienced defective product lawyers are fighting for clients’ rights to compensation and justice. If you or a loved one served in the military any time between 2003 and 2015 and has been diagnosed with hearing loss or tinnitus, you may qualify for financial compensation. This lawsuit is not against the government or armed services and does not affect disability benefits.

Paragard IUD Injuries & Lawsuits

Cory Watson Attorneys are investigating potential lawsuits for women who have been injured by the Paragard IUD birth control device. Several thousand reports of Paragard IUD breakage have been filed with the FDA since 2013. Of those cases, over a hundred have reportedly resulted in hospitalization or life-threatening complications. Broken Paragard IUDs can lead to complications, infections, and surgeries. Despite reports of injury, the Paragard IUD remains widely available to consumers as a popular hormone-free alternative to other hormone-based IUD devices.  As more reports of Paragard-related injury and complications come in, Cory Watson Attorneys remain committed to seeking justice and potential damages for consumers who may have suffered due to Paragard usage. To ensure that our clients receive the aid they need during the healing process, Cory Watson Attorneys will advocate aggressively on your behalf and handle your case with the utmost care. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or required surgery from a broken Paragard IUD, contact our legal team immediately. What is Paragard? Paragard is an intrauterine birth control device (IUD) which relies on copper rather than hormones to prevent pregnancy. The Paragard IUD was first approved by the FDA in 1984 and was available on the market as far back as 1988.  Paragard is a T-shaped device featuring copper around both arms and the central trunk. The copper in the Paragard IUDs is a natural spermicide and encourages an inflammatory reaction within the uterus to prevent fertilization.  Paragard is the only copper-based alternative to hormonal IUDs available in the US, contributing to its popularity and widespread usage. Paragard is also billed as a “longer-lasting” IUD, and claims to remain effective for up to 10 years or longer. Reports of Paragard-Related Injury Voluntary reports from consumers to the FDA illustrate an alarming number of Paragard-related injuries. An investigative report conducted by the Sinclair Broadcast Group in March of 2021 used the FDA’s own Adverse Events Reporting System database to uncover thousands of injuries and complications reportedly caused by Paragard since 2013. Among those cases, there have been: 3,186 reports of “device breakage” 1,910 of which have been “serious” With 102 reports of hospitalization and life-threatening complications These reports may only represent a small portion of related injuries across Paragard’s 33-year availability. However, to date, Paragard has not been recalled by the manufacturer specifically for breakage issues. No class action claims have been filed against the manufacturer, though dozens of individual lawsuits have been brought.  Paragard’s manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, is currently facing lawsuits alleging that it failed consumers by not warning them that the IUD could break upon removal, among other claims. Among existing lawsuits, claims include that: The companies responsible for Paragard acted negligently. The Paragard IUD was defectively designed and manufactured. The risk of breakage is not included on the product warning label. Injuries Associated with Paragard Many of the reported claims of Paragard-related injury have centered on device breakage. Even under the supervision of physicians, the IUD has been known to break during the removal process. In some cases, ultrasounds have been required to locate broken or missing IUD fragments followed by surgeries to remove those fragments. Injuries associated with Paragard breakage include: Perforation of the uterus Device migration Copper wire left inside the body Pelvic pain Expulsion Infections Scarring Organ damage Some injuries, such as uterine perforation, can further contribute to life-threatening complications such as hemorrhaging or sepsis. Internal bleeding and infection can require costly surgeries to repair and an excessively long and painful recovery period.  Litigation History Despite the absence of pending class-action lawsuits against Teva Pharmaceuticals, enough individual cases have been filed (more than 100 lawsuits to date) to warrant consolidation into multi-district litigation.  As of March 2021, momentum is continuing to build against Paragard and its manufacturer. Stories of Paragard-related injuries are making the rounds on social media with one such Facebook support group including nearly 9,000 members.  At Cory Watson Attorneys, we continue to monitor legal action against Paragard’s manufacturer, with one of our own attorneys, Andy Jones, being recently named to the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee for In Re: Paragard IUD Products Liability Litigation–the multidistrict litigation involving serious complications linked to Paragard. As one of 17 attorneys appointed by US District Judge Leigh Martin May, Andy will help oversee the investigation, development, coordination, and presentation of potential Paragard injury cases.  So far, neither Teva Pharmaceuticals nor the Federal Drug Administration have taken meaningful action to address the risks associated with Paragard breakage. As momentum against the manufacturer continues to build, however, this may swifty change. Seeking Justice Cory Watson Attorneys have been seeking justice for personal injury victims for over 38 years–considerably longer than Paragard has been available on the US market. In that time, we’ve successfully litigated on behalf of our clients against some of the most powerful and influential companies in the world, including Fortune 500 companies. Excellent legal representation, honesty, integrity, and innovation are among the many hallmark values cherished and demonstrated by our team. If you’ve suffered an injury due to Paragard breakage, you’ve already been through enough. We’re prepared to handle your case without further, undue stress or hassle to get you what you need on your path to recovery.  Our personal injury lawyers are regularly called to serve as Lead Counsel, Class Counsel, and in other leadership positions in legal actions, including multi-district litigation and class-action lawsuits.  Consumers who may have been harmed by Teva Pharmaceuticals and the Paragard IUD deserve justice, and Cory Watson Attorneys are here 24/7 to help them achieve it. If you or someone you know has been injured or affected by a Paragard IUD, contact us today. Our personal injury lawyers are ready to fight for you.

Judge Rules in Favor of Cory Watson Clients to Award $40+ Million in Damages

Cory Watson has always been honored to stand up for our clients by taking on the big corporations who wronged them. Our experienced attorneys understand that oftentimes the fight for justice is a marathon—not a sprint—and that it sometimes requires a jury to make a defendant appreciate the full extent of the harm it caused to our clients. After initially filing a lawsuit in November 2017, a Columbus, Ohio jury unanimously reached a verdict in March 2020 that held DuPont responsible for two separate testicular cancer diagnoses to Travis Abbott and awarded him $40 million in compensatory damages. Following the ruling DuPont requested a significant reduction in the amount of compensation and for a new trial. However, in a 32-page order, U.S. District Judge Edmund A. Sargus issued a final ruling that awarded Mr. and Mrs. Abbott $40.3 million for their combined damages and suffering, denied DuPont’s request for a new trial, and denied its request to reduce Mr. Abbott’s award. “We are very pleased with the Court’s most recent ruling in this case,” said Cory Watson Principal Attorney Jon Conlin. “Despite multiple motions from DuPont trying to overturn the jury’s $40 million dollar award to Travis Abbott, the Court correctly upheld the verdict and agreed that the evidence in our case clearly supported the Abbotts’ multi-million-dollar awards.” Oftentimes our attorneys must prepare to take on expansive defense teams on behalf of injury victims for the long haul. Cory Watson takes deep pride in the sustained fight to get our clients the compensation they deserve. “Travis Abbott suffered devastating injuries because of the company’s decades-long dumping of the forever chemical PFOA (C8) into the community drinking water,” Conlin said. “While Ohio Tort Reform did result in a reduction in Julie’s award to the maximum allowed statutory cap, Travis’ sum (and the multiple millions of additional dollars in stipulated pre-judgment interest) will remain fully intact.” Attorneys Jon C. Conlin, F. Jerome Tapley, Nina Towle Herring, Mitchell Theodore, Beth Chambers and Brett Thompson are honored to represent the plaintiffs and secure a $40.3 million judgment on behalf of the Abbott family. The case is Swartz, et al. v. E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., S.D. Ohio, Case No. 2:18-cv-136, and Abbott v. E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., S.D. Ohio, Case No. 2:17-cv-998. About Cory Watson Attorneys Cory Watson Attorneys is a nationally-recognized personal injury law firm with offices in Birmingham, Alabama as well as Memphis, and Nashville, Tennessee.

March is National Kidney Month

Information and graphics provided by kidney.org: Kidney Health Facts: The kidneys are the body’s chemical factories, filtering waste and performing vital functions that control things like red blood cell production and blood pressure. But over time, the kidneys can become damaged with little or no physical symptoms to warn you that your kidneys are in trouble. “Of the 26 million American adults estimated to have kidney disease, most don’t know they have it. That’s why taking care of your kidneys, especially if you are at risk for kidney disease, is vital,” said Joseph Vassalotti, MD, National Kidney Foundation Chief Medical Officer. “There are a few simple things people can do to keep their kidneys healthy and strong.” 1 in 3 American adults is at high risk for developing kidney disease today. High blood pressure, diabetes, a family history of kidney failure and being over 60 are major risk factors for developing kidney disease. 1 in 9 American adults has kidney disease — and most don’t know it. Early detection and treatment can slow or prevent the progression of kidney disease. Kidney disease risk can be reduced by controlling blood pressure and blood sugar, quitting smoking, regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding excessive use of pain medications. The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease. For more information, visit All Americans can do 5 simple things to protect their kidneys: Get Tested! Ask your doctor for an ACR urine test or a GFR blood test annually if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, are over age 60, or have a family history of kidney failure. Get screened for free through the National Kidney Foundation’s KEEP Healthy program by visiting www.kidney.org/KEEPHealthy. Reduce NSAIDs. Over the counter pain medicines, such as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), may alleviate your aches and pains, but they can harm the kidneys, especially if you already have kidney disease. Reduce your regular use of NSAIDs and never go over the recommended dosage. Cut the Processed Foods. Processed foods can be significant sources of sodium, nitrates and phosphates, and have been linked to cancer, heart disease and kidney disease. Try adopting the DASH diet to guide your healthy eating habits. Exercise Regularly. Your kidneys like it when you exercise. Regular exercise will keep your bones, muscles, blood vessels, heart and kidneys healthy.
