UPDATE: Lupron continues to be prescribed by doctors for a variety of different medical conditions. Treatment for endometriosis is one of the most common uses of the drug, and it is meant to provide pain relief. The drug may also be used to prolong the life of men who have advanced prostate cancer, and it is also used as a hormone blocker in cases where children begin experiencing puberty at an early age. However, Lupron has significant side effects that affect most patients, and in many cases, patients are not fully informed about the potential impact of using this drug.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received more than 25,000 reports of adverse issues experienced by patients who have taken Lupron. Many patients have experienced serious pain in the bones and joints, as well as loss of bone density and atrophied muscles. Other side effects include vision loss, suicidal ideation, increased risk of strokes, fibromyalgia, and convulsions. The potential health issues that patients may experience are severe enough that the FDA recommends that the drug be administered for no more than 12 months during a person’s lifetime.

illinois car accident lawyerTo operate a motor vehicle safely, one must think clearly, reason responsibility, and maintain muscle coordination. Alcohol consumption weakens all of these functions. Any injury caused by a car accident can be devastating and the injuries caused by a drunk driving accident are often preventable. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that nearly half of the vehicle fatalities in Illinois involve alcohol. Unfortunately, drunk driving is even more prominent during the summer months.

Illinois Drunk Driving Accidents

Across the nation, summer accounts for the highest level of drunk driving-related fatalities. This increase in deadly accidents makes it imperative to understand the dangers of drunk driving. Because alcohol can weaken the driver’s attention and control of the vehicle, the resulting injuries tend to be much worse. Impaired drivers may swerve, speed or even drive the wrong way on a highway, potentially leading to a head-on collision.

As drunk driving accidents remain prevalent, law enforcement has taken steps to discourage this behavior. One combative strategy includes sobriety checkpoints, allowing officers to check drivers for impairment at highly visible locations.

Rolling Meadows personal injury attorneyWhen parents drop their children off at daycare, they trust that the staff will keep their child safe. Unfortunately, some daycare facilities do not meet these expectations. When a child is injured at daycare, nursery school, summer camp, after-school program, or another type of childcare facility, the facility may be liable for damages. The parents may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost income, and other costs.

When is a Child Care Facility Legally Responsible for a Child’s Injuries?

As any parent can tell you, children get hurt all the time. However, daycare facilities are legally obligated to prevent reasonably foreseeable injuries. The facility should be kept clean and free of hazardous objects. Children should be properly supervised. Staff should be vetted for any history of child abuse. When a daycare facility fails to uphold this duty and a child is harmed as a result, the daycare may be legally responsible for the child’s injuries.

There are almost countless ways that a daycare may be liable for injuries but, often, personal injury claims against daycare facilities involve:

rolling meadows defective product lawyerWhile most companies conduct thorough testing before releasing their products to the public, certain defective products slip through the cracks.
