2000px-Chrysler_Group_logo.svgFiat Chrysler has announced a recall of 1.1 million vehicles throughout the world because of the gear shift design is causing driver confusion over what gear the vehicle is in.  Even though there are two reminders in place for safety in the vehicles now, including a chiming/alert message if the door is opened when not in park and an indicator light that tells drivers what gear it is in, drivers have had difficulty.  Fiat Chrysler has decided, after at least 41 injuries have been reported, that they will change how the gear selector works and improve warnings.   

The affected vehicles for the recall include 2012 to 2014 Dodge Chargers and Chrysler 300 sedans, as well as 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee sports utility vehicles.  The gear shift has already been changed by Fiat Chrysler in newer vehicles, so they have known this design to be a problem while making newer models. 

If your Chrysler vehicle has the recalled shift design, Fiat Chrysler has indicated the company will contact you.  If you or a loved one has been injured due to the confusing shift design, do not hesitate to contact the professionals at Inserra & Kelley Law Offices to see if you may be entitled to compensation.

Cell_phone_use_while_drivingAlthough we are a little late getting the news out that April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, this is a subject that should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind every month, given the lethal problem it has become in society.  People often want to think of teen drivers as the culprits, but this is not true.  This problem has become the vice of adult drivers, with teen texting frequency being 31 percent for 16 to 18 year olds, young adult texting frequency being 42 percent for 19 to 24 year olds, and 20’s texting frequency being 45 percent for 25 to 29 year olds.  It does not stop there, either, as drivers older than that are certainly not immune to engaging in the distracted driving practice causing injuries and fatalities.  In fact, studies have shown that typical drivers out on the roads on a daily basis are distracted over half the time they drive.  The distractions can be anything that makes them take their eyes off the road, even for a second.

Use_Sunscreen_Spray-_Avoid_Open_Flame_(9196637400)As the weather warms up and the urge to do any activity that involves sunshine revs up with spring and summer, often time the bottles and tubes of sunscreen come out.  There is a warning out about a side effect of sunscreen that may have people rethinking slathering the stuff on liberally and often.  Copenhagen researchers have found that UV filters in sunscreens are made up of chemicals that are endocrine disruptors that mimic the female hormone progesterone.  While that sunscreen’s endocrine disruptors are filtering the sun, they could also be filtering the proper functioning of sperm, with the progesterone mimicker messing up the signals in the sperm cells and possibly affecting fertility.  Research found that even in small quantities the UV filters had an impact on sperm.  Sunscreens are not the only products containing UV filters, so it is good to check any of those lotions and creams used often on a daily basis year round. 

Many might be mumbling to themselves at this point that here is another product that one is supposed to use as prevention for one thing (cancer), but now it is found to possibly cause another (infertility).  If the possible infertility is a concern, skin cancer risks can be minimized by avoiding sun exposure during midday hours by staying inside or wearing hats and clothing to protect the skin.  Inserra & Kelley Law Offices wants you to be safe and healthy to live life to the fullest, and will keep its readership up to date on things that can interfere with that health and well-being.

scopeMedical scope contamination is a bigger problem than understood with 300 to 350 patients and 41 hospitals worldwide (most in the U.S.) reporting patients being stricken with bacterial infections linked to the scopes.  These figures may even be under-representing the true statistics given the fact that many hospitals do not always test patients for antibiotic resistant superbugs that cause the infections.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been criticized for its lack of attention to this problem being the fault of the manufacturer rather than the hospitals.  Hospitals have reported following manufacturer instructions for in-hospital cleaning of the scopes, but infections have continued.  Olympus is a Japanese manufacturer of medical scopes and is the most prevalent manufacturer of medical scopes used in the United States.  The FDA decided to keep the Olympus medical scopes on the market, but the complex design of the scopes makes them very difficult to clean appropriately to prevent infection.  Body fluids and other debris can be stuck in the medical device’s crevices and joints despite manufacturer informed efforts at cleaning and disinfecting them. 

If you or someone you love has experienced a bacterial infection after a medical procedure involving Olympus or other brand name medical scopes, contact your medical provider and do not hesitate to contact the caring experts at Inserra & Kelley Law Offices to see whether you may be entitled to compensation.
