Abilify Lawsuits Continue as Drug Goes Digital

Despite concerns about risks and dangers associated with Abilify, the product has crossed a digital milestone. Abilify MyCite is now the first digital medicine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And while it has been approved for treatment of some conditions, the expanded applications of drug continue to raise concerns about its association with compulsive behaviors and serious injuries reported in Abilify Lawsuits

Fatal motor vehicle accidents can change holidays forever

There may not be much, if any, snow during the holidays in Florida, but that does not keep people from celebrating and enjoying them anyway. They often look back on prior holidays and smile, even at that one relative who had a little too much "holiday cheer." However, when fatal motor vehicle accidents happen on a holiday, how the family left behind perceive it often changes. It could take some time to smile at that same holiday again.

Abilify Lawsuits: What We Know So Far

On May 3, 2016 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the generic drug aripiprazole (Abilify, Abilify Maintena, Aristada, and generics) were found to be associated with impulsive behaviors and diminished impulse control. Following the FDA's announcement, investigations into whether the manufacturers acted negligently began and Abilify lawsuits began being filed by the hundreds as people injured by the drug sought justice. These Abilify lawsuits involve a wide range of injuries and damages associated with the user's diminished capacity to control their impulses. 

Far too many young lives are ended by motor vehicle accidents

Like other parents around the country, those here in Florida do what they can to keep their children safe. Even as they travel on the state's roadways, most are keenly aware that they hold their children's lives in their hands. The problem is that other drivers may not be as careful, and far too many young lives end in motor vehicle accidents.

Workers' compensation does not always compensate

Like many states, Florida's workers' compensation system has its flaws. Workers may complain about the amount of benefits they receive, and employers complain about the cost of keeping everyone insured. Nevertheless, in general, the idea of providing this type of insurance for employees benefits everyone.

Abilify Lawsuits Tie Drug to Compulsive Sex, Gambling, and More

Can a drug cause you to engage in dangerous sex, excessive gambling, compulsive shopping or binge eating? Evidence filed in Abilify lawsuits indicates that the drug is connected to these compulsive behaviors and the FDA has made a safety announcement regarding dangerous behaviors associated with Abilify. 

Seeking disability benefits for fibromyalgia

The pain of fibromyalgia is undeniable. Like many who suffer from this mysterious illness, you may have been perfectly healthy, perhaps even athletic. Out of nowhere, the symptoms struck, turning you from an active, energetic person to someone who can barely get out of bed some days.

Understanding Hernia Mesh Recalls

Over the past twenty years, hernia repair surgery has become synonymous with hernia mesh. Hernia mesh is used in a growing number of procedures to restore the structural integrity of the hernia site in an effort to prevent a hernia from recurring. Unfortunately, many people have found themselves further injured by these surgical mesh implants, the complications they can cause, and wondering why they were not warned about these potential risks. Hernia mesh lawsuits are being filed to investigate this issue and protect the rights of injured patients. 

A day at the fair could turn into a personal injury claim

Everyone knows that Walt Disney World, Epcot Center and the other Disney theme parks are here in Florida. However, the Sunshine State also hosts numerous fairs with rides and attractions that people love to visit. The problem is that some of the rides at the fairs could potentially be personal injury claims waiting to happen.

The wreckage can say a lot about motor vehicle accidents

Many Florida residents drive by crash scenes and speculate what happened based on the wreckage. For instance, if passing motorists see a vehicle that appears to no longer have a trunk or back seat, they more than likely assume that it was struck in the rear. It may not necessarily be difficult to figure out how vehicles collided in some motor vehicle accidents, but the factors that led to them are often more elusive.
