The team at Inserra Kelley and Sewell are a no nonsense group of professionals that handled my case with tact and care.... Every step of the way I was notified promptly and advised on a course of action. They handled the negotiation side of things and handled all the back end work for me. In my particular case, I feel that I got what I was owed and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again if the need ever arose.

Is Flashing Your Headlights Protected by the First Amendment?

Have you ever warned another motorist approaching a speed trap by flashing your lights?  A driver in Ellisville, MO did and was ticketed for improper flashing of signals.  He chose to fight the ticket and refused to plead guilty, causing the Judge to ask him if he had heard of obstruction of justice.  Although the case was eventually dropped, the driver brought a civil rights lawsuit alleging that the act of flashing headlights constituted a form of protected speech.

In the face of ongoing public outrage over decreased privacy, this case alleged that the communication of flashing your lights was protected by the First Amendment.  The driver is being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri, who claims this type of communication is no different than communicating the same message by radio or at a local gas station.

Other states have previously addressed this issue.  Tennessee and Utah have sided with drivers and in Florida, a state law was passed to ban prosecutions for flashing headlights.  Do you agree this rises to the level of free speech, or is it obstruction of justice to warn other drivers of impending speed traps ahead?

 

Are You Aware of the Risks of Your Generic Medications?

Thanks to a Petition submitted by Public Citizen to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a change may be coming in generic drug labeling.  At the present time, FDA regulations prohibit generic manufacturer’s from updating a product’s safety label too efficiently, creating a safety gap, as potential health risks may not be available to the public on a timely basis.

The new proposed rule would allow the safety information to be disclosed to the public while the FDA reviews the information.  With the current rule, generic or prescription name brand drugs can be on the market for several years before serious safety hazards are discovered, leading to doubts about whether the amount of time a drug has been on the market has anything to do with the safety of the drug.  Unfortunately, generic drugs, with lower prices, usually cause manufacturers to stop producing the name-brand drug, making the manufacturer less informed about the latest hazards of each drug.

In 2009, the Supreme Court issued a ruling which allowed people who are hurt by a brand-name drug to sue the manufacturer for damages.  However, in June of 2013, the Supreme Court issued an opinion stating an injured person does not have the right to sue for damages caused by the design of a generic drug.  Coupled with the 2011 Supreme Court decision that shielded generic manufacturers from lawsuits regarding improper labeling, an injured person has almost no recourse if the damages were caused by a generic drug.  The one exception to the rule would be for a company that has a flaw in its manufacturing process.  There is a small group of Senators who have proposed changing the FDA regulations so consumers are able to sue for damages caused by generic drugs.  Unfortunately, due to the recent Supreme Court rulings, there is currently very little accountability for generic drug companies.

CALIFORNIA JUDGE REJECTS JOHNSON & JOHNSON’S DEPUY ORTHOPAEDICS REQUEST FOR A NEW TRIAL

A California Judge rejected DePuy’s request for a new trial, after a jury decision handed down in March left the medical device maker with an $8.3 Million award in a Los Angeles court.  The case was the result of the first Complaint to go on trial over the hip implants, which were alleged to be defective and improperly designed, manufactured and marketed.  The Judge denied the request as the Plaintiff had provided enough evidence to establish the products were defective in design according to Law360.com.  The lead physician designer of the product told jurors in the trial that he wouldn’t implant the device today.

In the second trial in Illinois, Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy was found not liable for any damages. DePuy defended the lawsuit by alleging the Plaintiff’s damages were not caused by the alleged failure of the medical device or design flaws, but rather from the Plaintiff’s own health issues.  Although the two verdicts were dramatically different, there remains good settlement value for remaining cases, some of which are estimated to bring settlements as high as $500,000.00.  DePuy Orthopaedics issued a voluntary recall for the ASR XL Acetabular Hip System in August of 2010.

This initial case leads over 900 complaints about the hip implants stemming from nearly 11,000 similar cases, which have been filed in a Multi-District Litigation case in the District Court for Northern Texas.

Can Depression Medication Decrease Your Pain Levels?

Although doctors have been prescribing antidepressants for pain for years, this practice is becoming more frequent.  The use of Cymbalta has been shown to be effective in certain cases of pain where anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers and physical therapy have failed.  Cymbalta blocks pain signals making it the only antidepressant currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for chronic musculoskeletal pain.  The drug is used largely after the healing process has begun in order to shut down continuing pain signals, sometimes described as chronic pain.

Antidepressants are classified on how they work and their chemical structure, which is why the antidepressants are moderately effective for the treatment of pain.  The dosage is started at a low dose and slowly increased, however is generally lower in dose than that prescribed for depression.  Normally, patients suffer few side effects from the use of antidepressants for pain.  If you think you may benefit from the use of antidepressants for your pain, consult your treating physician.

Chrysler Recalls Over One Million Jeep SUVs

CHRYSLER RECALLS MORE THAN ONE MILLION JEEP SUVS
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration formally requested Chrysler to recall up to 2.7 million Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty SUVs in early June. At that time, Chrysler refused to initiate a recall, however last week the auto maker announced a safety recall on more than one million Jeep SUVs. The alleged problem is the location of the fuel tanks behind the rear axle, which causes a potential fire risk in a rear end crash. Although it appears that Chrysler’s opinion on the recall had changed, they actually ended up making a deal with the NHTSA which allows Chrysler to recall fewer vehicles than initially requested, while making no admission of a defect in the vehicles. This could make it more difficult for anyone involved in a fire or crash to sue Chrysler.

The agreement also does not require Chrysler to develop any new components. Chrysler has made concessions as well by agreeing to recall nearly 1.6 million vehicles, rather than fighting the action in Court. Chrysler won a similar lawsuit in the 1990s, however they no longer have the strength of brand that Ford and Toyota do, so they are not in as strong of a position to fight the recall. Whether the decision to compromise was made to avoid bad publicity, or out of concern for the consumer, Chrysler has agreed to address the problem.

How real is the danger if you have one of these vehicles? The Center for Auto Safety has documented at least three cases where young children in car seats died in a blaze after a Jeep was rear-ended. While Chrysler and the government work to resolve the issue of the recall, Inserra & Kelley urges you to keep an eye out for recall notices for your vehicle.
