Breast Implants & Possible Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma

Back in 2011 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced a possible link of breast implants to anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), which is a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  Since that time, the World Health Organization has come out and concurred with he findings and research and data has continued.  Women who have had breast implants run the risk of developing a rare T-cell lymphoma and it is thought that the breast implants with textured surfaces have had a higher occurrence of the problem than those with smooth surfaces.  Since there is still not definitive knowledge on this subject, medical providers are receiving recommendations to monitor their patients with breast implants with routine care and support with awareness of the risk that appears to still be rare at the present time.  It is also recommended that consumers do their research prior to making the decision to undergo breast implant surgery, and for those individuals who opt to have it, it is important to follow medical instructions to the letter on how to monitor breast implants and notice any changes.  It is vital at this point that all cases of ALCL be reported so that governing medical bodies, researchers, medical providers, and makers of breast implants can stay abreast of the risks and developments of problems. 

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a problem related to breast implants, or any medical device, drug, or other product, consult your medical provider and please contact  Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys, to discuss your possible claim and entitlement to compensation for your damages.     

Polaris Sportsman 850 & 1000 ATV Recalls

Polaris has announced recalls involving its all-terrain vehicle models Sportsman 850 and Sportsman 1000 due to burn and fire hazards.  Both models run the risk that the right-side panel heat shield will melt, which could lead to fire risks and burns to riders.  The Sportsman 1000 model also poses the risk of exhaust leaks, fire risks, and burn injuries due to its exhaust springs at times stretching the exhaust seal.  Polaris has received complaints of a minimum of 793 problems with the ATV’s, with reports of warping, melting, and burned side panels, as well as 47 fires, and 4 burn injuries.  The recalled models come from 2015 and 2016, so it is vital to check the Polaris website at http://www.polaris.com/en-us/rider-support/off-road-recalls to enter a vehicle identification number, or call the company at 800-765-2747.

Abilify and Impulse Control Like Gambling Addiction

The latest drug linked to problems for patient consumers is Aripiprazole, and anti-psychotic medication better known under the names of Abilify, Abilify Maintena, and Aristada.  The  U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has come out with a warning that people taking the above drugs have had impulse-control issues, such as out-of-control desires for sex, shopping, binge eating, and gambling.   To make the link stronger to these drugs, people reporting problems with uncontrollable urges in these areas have found that the urges came to an abrupt end once doses of the prescribed drugs, including Abilify, were stopped or reduced.  The FDA insisted that new warnings be added with these drugs’ labels and medication guides that compulsive behaviors have been linked to them. 

The FDA says that both patients and caregivers, who notice excessive urges, should see their healthcare providers right away so as to hopefully stop or at least lessen the consequences of such uncontrollable urges, given that urges in any areas listed can cause very harmful results.  Medical and mental health professionals should be aware of, and ready to warn about, the uncontrollable urge side effects of these drugs when prescribing for patients with conditions such as Tourette’s, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autistic related irritability.  While these drugs can decrease hallucinations and other symptoms that come with these conditions, and help with things like disorganized thinking and mood regulation, the risks of compulsive, unbridled behaviors in the areas of sex, gambling, spending, and eating might make the risks outweigh the benefits.  It is important that the risks and benefits be weighed carefully by medical providers and patients/caregivers. 

If you or a loved one has already suffered the ill effects of compulsions taking Aripiprazole under any of its brand names or generic names, consult your medical and/or mental health provider and contact  Inserra Kelley Sewell, personal injury attorneys, to discuss whether you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries.     

Tips from Snowplow Drivers on Driving Safe in Blizzard Conditions

Although we are getting a little closer all the time to Spring, we still have some winter left for 2017 and the possibilities of being stuck driving in blizzard conditions.  Fortunately, there are ways to drive as safe as is possible in such conditions with the advice of those out fighting the roads to help us stay safe, the snowplow driver.  The first thing these professional want us to know is that it is simply best if you do not drive at all!  This seems like simple logic, but in our fast-paced, demanding world there are unfortunately more and more unable to, or choosing not to, heed such advice.  Of course there are those like healthcare providers, public servants, first responders, and so on who simply have to get out there on those roads.  The snowplows can better do their jobs to get us out there again sooner, however, if we just let them have the roads to themselves. 

If you do find yourself as one of the unlucky ones out there during blizzard or any bad weather conditions, following too closely is just not advised.  Again, this seems like it would be common sense that every driver would know, but there are too many tailgating drivers who just cannot seem to help themselves driving in good or bad conditions.  It is wise to leave plenty of space in front of and behind you in slick and blizzard conditions, as stopping will not happen on a dime and could cost you your life or the lives of others.  It is wise to not only leave plenty of space, but to also drive much slower.  If you should find yourself sliding without the ability to stop, do not do the natural reaction and slam on those brakes or your car could lock up and/or fishtail. 

Another thing snowplow drivers want drivers out there in ill-advised conditions to know is that four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems do not mean vehicles will be able to stop or steer safely in icy or slushy conditions.  If you wonder, just look around at many of the vehicles seen in the ditches during icy or slushy conditions after barreling down the road with the operators having faith they are immune to anything with four-wheel or all-wheel drive!   It can also be helpful to have specialty winter tires, especially if living in areas prone to winter driving difficulties.  Although they can be a significant investment, they are an investment in safety and can be lifesaving. 

Finally, know that even snowplow drivers can find themselves the victims of wrecks when conditions get extremely bad, or when conditions such as black ice catch them unaware.  Watch out for snowplow drivers for both your own safety and theirs.  Inexperienced or careless drivers can hurt themselves or the professionals when out driving in blizzard conditions, so it is best to heed the warnings, road, and weather reports rather than gambling with your life or the lives of others. 

If you or a loved one has already been injured in a motor vehicle accident, whether caused by bad weather conditions or something else, do not hesitate to contact  Inserra Kelley Sewell, personal injury attorneys, experts in auto accident claims, to discuss your possible injury compensation.
