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. Getting active for at least 30 minutes a day can also help you control blood pressure and lower blood sugar, which is vital to kidney health. Control Blood Pressure and Diabetes. High blood pressure and diabetes are the leading causes of kidney disease and kidney failure. Managing high blood pressure and strict control of blood sugar levels can slow the progression of kidney disease. Speak with your doctor if you are having trouble managing diabetes or high blood pressure. WE’RE ALWAYS HERE TO HELP The experienced attorneys at Cory Watson Attorneys understand the importance of kidney health because of their ongoing work with the Proton Pump Inhibitor, Zantac, and C8 Environmental litigations.

Andy Jones Named to Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for Paragard Litigation

Cory Watson attorney R. Andrew Jones has been named to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) for In Re: Paragard IUD Products Liability Litigation; the multidistrict litigation involving serious complications linked to the Paragard IUD. Mr. Jones is one of 17 attorneys appointed by U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May. The PSC will continue to investigate and develop the Paragard IUD injury claims. The committee also oversees the coordination, preparation, and presentation of the cases. “It is a tremendous honor to serve among a highly talented, passionate group of attorneys as we pursue this nationwide litigation,” said Jones. “We realize the gravity of the responsibility to fight for justice on behalf of consumers who were harmed by this dangerous product.” The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation established MDL 2974 in December 2020, consolidating cases involving Paragard in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. More than 100 cases have been transferred to the federal MDL, with hundreds more expected to be filed against the manufacturer of Paragard. Paragard was approved by the FDA in the 1980’s as a non-hormonal birth control device. However, since approval the FDA has received thousands of reports from women and their healthcare providers about Paragard devices breaking upon removal. This can lead to broken pieces of the Paragard device becoming embedded in a patient and often require surgical removal. “At the end of the day manufacturers always have a responsibility to fully investigate and warn patients about serious side effects associated with their products,” Jones said. “Paragard’s manufacturer failed to do that for its consumers, so we will hold them accountable.” 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. The firm has recovered more than $3 billion for clients across the country. Cory Watson Attorneys are frequently at the forefront of major class actions and multidistrict litigations involving product liability related to burn injuries from defective products, and are often appointed to leadership positions in national cases. Firm practice areas include Personal Injury, Product Liability, Class Action, Asbestos, Business & Commercial Litigation, Dangerous Pharmaceuticals, Defective Medical Devices, and Environmental/Toxic Torts.

Nina Towle Herring Named To Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for Elmiron Litigation

Cory Watson attorney Nina Towle Herring has been named to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) for In Re: Elmiron (Pentosan Polysulfate Sodium) Products Liability Litigation; the multidistrict litigation involving Elmiron medication linked to serious eye damage. Mrs. Herring is one of 25 attorneys appointed by U.S. District Judge Brian R. Martinotti. The PSC will continue to investigate and develop the Elmiron (Pentosan Polysulfate Sodium) claims. The committee also oversees the coordination, preparation, and presentation of the cases. “It is a great honor to pursue this nationwide litigation alongside a highly talented, passionate group of attorneys,” said Herring. “We take seriously the opportunity to fight for justice on behalf of consumers who were harmed by this defective drug.” The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation established MDL 2973 in December 2020, consolidating defective drug liability cases involving Elmiron in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. Over 130 cases have been transferred to the federal MDL, with hundreds more expected to be filed against the manufacturer of Elmiron. Elmiron was approved by the FDA in 1996 for the treatment of painful bladder syndrome (interstitial cystitis). However, studies released in 2018 and 2019 showed a link between Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) and pigmentary maculopathy. The Elmiron label was changed in June 2020 to warn for retinal pigmentary changes. Symptoms of pigmentary maculopathy may include trouble reading, trouble adjusting to dim lighting, glare, blind spots, and in severe cases, blindness. The majority of plaintiffs represented in the MDL are anticipated to be women as interstitial cystitis, the medical condition that Elmiron was prescribed for, largely affects female patients.  “Despite Elmiron being an older drug, manufacturers always have a responsibility to fully investigate, and warn users about, serious side effects,” Herring said. “The manufacturers of Elmiron failed to do that and we will hold them accountable.” About Cory Watson Attorneys Cory Watson Attorneys is a nationally recognized personal injury law firm with offices in Birmingham, Alabama; Memphis, and Nashville, Tennessee.

Cory Watson Investigates Wrongful Death Lawsuit on Behalf of Family of Koby Edwards

Cory Watson, a nationally distinguished personal injury firm, has been retained by the family of Koby Edwards to investigate a wrongful death lawsuit against the Cuthbert Police Department. Koby Edwards was shot to death by two Cuthbert Police Department officers. The following statement is issued on behalf of his family: We remain heartbroken in the aftermath of Koby’s tragic and completely unnecessary death at the hands of two City of Cuthbert police officers. While we understand that the Randolph County Grand Jury requested indictments be returned for reckless conduct against the two officers involved, many questions remain unanswered as to the officers’ motives in allegedly chasing down and using deadly force against a teenager while investigating a property crime. Far too often, black people are deprived of justice in these circumstances. We appreciate the diligent work of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and District Attorney Ronald McNease, Jr. in their investigation and presentation of evidence to the Grand Jury. While this initial proceeding is a significant first step, we look forward to uncovering the truth surrounding the death of our beloved Koby, however unsettling those facts may be. In this country, there exists a long history of unwarranted, excessively violent, and abhorrent use of deadly force by law enforcement against black people, and especially young black men. We are deeply troubled that Koby’s life was ended under these same circumstances and demand that this cycle of violence come to an end. We want to make clear that Koby did not pose a danger to society. His unwavering dream was to serve both his community and his country as a member of the armed forces. For those of you hurting with us, sending your kindness to us, and supporting us during this difficult time: We thank you for your love, light, and empathy. To all others, we request privacy pending the full outcome of this matter and ask that you direct any and all inquiries to our spokesperson.

Could Your Holiday Party Get You Sued? What Every Party Host Needs to Know

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Friends, neighbors, and co-workers find time to get together and host holiday festivities — from Christmas parties to New Year’s celebrations. In addition to food and entertainment, hosts often provide beer, wine, or other alcoholic drinks to their guests. But what are the legal risks involved when you provide alcohol to your guests at a holiday party or similar get-together? In fact, if one of your guests has too much to drink, you could be held responsible for paying damages to anybody they injure or kill in a drunk driving accident. What is Social Host Liability? “Social host liability” results when a host serves alcohol to a party guest who is obviously drunk, and the intoxicated guest hurts or kills another person, at the party or offsite. The common case is when an intoxicated guest drives away from the party and wrecks into another vehicle, hurting or killing its occupants; those victims can then sue the drunk driver as well as the party host. The laws which allow the lawsuit against the host are called “dram shop” acts.  These laws were initially focused on holding bar and restaurant owners responsible for injuries to others caused by their overserving of visibly intoxicated customers. Alabama Dram Shop Act Almost all states have dram shop acts, but these laws vary widely as to whether they cover public places like bars, restaurants, and clubs, as well as private individuals who serve alcohol to party guests. For example, Alabama’s Dram Shop Act allows individuals injured by an intoxicated person to sue the drunk and any person or business that provided alcohol to the intoxicated person. The private host serving alcohol is not liable for overserving the partygoer, unless the partygoer is a minor. Alabama also has a law known as the Civil Damages Act, which is specifically to protect minors (in Alabama, a person under the age of 19). It states that anyone providing alcohol to a minor who is subsequently hurt or killed because they are intoxicated can be sued for the injuries to, or death of, the minor. This is a very different law from the Alabama Dram Shop Act. Party Without Problems No matter what the social host liability law is in your state, you owe it to yourself and your guests to make sure that your party is a safe one, and that the alcohol you serve does not become a source of tragedy or liability. Follow these safety tips to minimize alcohol-related risks both during and after your party: Keep the kids away from the booze. Not only should you not serve alcohol to minors, but you should also make sure that they aren’t able to serve themselves in the middle of a hectic, crowded party. Hire a pro. If you’re responsible for serving drinks in addition to all of your other duties as host, or if you have an open bar, it can be hard to keep an eye on folks’ consumption and keep them from overserving. Professional bartenders are trained to spot intoxication and can help keep guests from having one too many or alert you to potential issues. Keep it together. The last person you want getting too drunk at your party is you. If you have too much to drink, it will make it difficult if not impossible to evaluate how your guests are doing during – and more importantly, at the end – of your party. Food and (non-alcoholic) drink. You’ll probably be serving food at your party, which can safely slow down the absorption of alcohol in the body. Additionally, have water and non-alcoholic drink options available so your guests can switch from booze if they want to slow down a bit or stop drinking for the night. Options for getting home – or staying. The biggest danger is an intoxicated party guest driving home drunk. Not only should you check and see if your guests have a designated driver in their group, but you should also have other transportation options available to them, such as Uber or Lyft. Make it clear that it’s okay for your guests to leave their cars behind, and if possible, offer your overserved guests the option of sleeping it off. All of us at Cory Watson Attorneys extend our best wishes to our friends, clients, colleagues, and their families for a happy, safe, and joyful holiday season. WE’RE ALWAYS HERE TO HELP We have made it our mission to fight for the rights of injury victims wherever and whenever they need us. If you or a loved one has been injured by someone else’s negligence, we want to fight for you. Call (877) 562-0000 or fill out our online form for your free and confidential case evaluation. We look forward to hearing from you.

Halloween: The Scariest Night of the Year for Personal Injury Attorneys

For those who celebrate Halloween, this is a wonderful time of the year filled with tricks and treats. For an experienced personal injury attorney, however, Halloween can be a very scary night. Children in colorful costumes running from house to house, collecting treats from strangers in dark, unfamiliar neighborhoods. Adults gathering for parties with friends, often drinking late into the night. Use these tips to help keep your community safe and avoid a lawsuit this Halloween! Halloween Safety Tips for Kids Make sure that children’s costumes fit properly, so they can walk easily. Don’t hide faces behind elaborate hats or masks that may reduce vision – opt for face paint instead and avoid wearing any tripping hazards. Bring along glow sticks and flashlights to light the way. Trick-or-Treating Safety Plan on going in a group, and stick together or buddy up to keep everyone accounted for. Set curfews for older, unsupervised children. Be sure that kids stop at the curb, look both ways and listen for traffic before crossing the street. Stay on a sidewalk whenever possible. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic so drivers can easily see you. Wait until you get home to dig into the candy. That way, parents can check for tampering, spot treats with allergens and discard homemade food items or anything deemed unsafe. Halloween Safety for Drivers Be on high alert while driving – With so many more people walking around, drive slowly and watch for pedestrians on the street. Dark costumes may be hard to see, and children might be wearing a mask or hat that obstructs their view. Don’t drive drunk. Adults might celebrate by drinking at a house party or bar. Have a designated driver, or take an Uber/Lyft service home. Avoid distractions– don’t use your cell phone while driving. Halloween Home Safety Tips If you’re in charge of handing out treats, here are some tips to make sure your visitors enjoy themselves. Clear your property and light the path so guests can easily find your door. Excited children may cut through your lawn, so check that you haven’t left out obstacles that could trip someone. If you have a dog, keep it safely away from the door. Not only will some children be afraid, but the constant doorbell ringing and stream of trick-or-treaters may overwhelm your pet. Provide store-bought treats. Play-Doh, erasers, and other small Halloween toys can be a fun surprise for those with allergies, but avoid anything homemade in case of food poisoning. Halloween Personal Injury Lawyers Halloween should be fun, not dangerous. Spread the word around your neighborhood to keep your community safe. If the worst should happen and you or your child is injured, the personal injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys can help. Contact us today for a free evaluation of your claim. Have a happy and safe Halloween from everyone at Cory Watson Attorneys!
