Are you familiar with defective medical devices?

It goes without saying that you rely on your medical team to provide you with high quality advice and guidance. Furthermore, you hope that any medical device you come in contact with will improve your level of health. Unfortunately, there are times when a defective medical device harms or kills a patient.

Despite the fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does its best to keep these products off the market, they continue to slip through the cracks. As a result, thousands of innocent people are harmed every year.

When a hip replacement doesn’t go as planned

A hip replacement surgery is meant to make your life better, to relieve you of pain and allow you to reclaim the mobility you have lost that has kept you from participating fully in your favorite activities.

Unfortunately, there are times when these procedures do not go as planned. For example, DePuy hip replacement surgeries resulted in a recall of approximately 90,000 units of hip implants.

Understanding Car Insurance Quotes

It's easy to forget how wonderful car insurance is until you need it. Car insurance can greatly reduce or eliminate your out-of-pocket costs when an accident occurs, whether it's your fault or not. This is also where it can be confusing, too. What will insurance cover? What policies did you purchase, and what are you responsible for?

An auto defect can cause a serious accident

When you purchase a vehicle, you hope that you are getting something that is 100 percent safe. You know that you could be involved in an accident, but you don't expect to be injured as the result of a defect.

Every year, auto manufacturers issue recalls in hopes of fixing a problem that has been brought to their attention. Unfortunately, some people don't follow through with a recall repair. As a result, there is the chance that the defect could cause serious injury or even death.

What To Do if You Have a Rental Car Accident

So, you've rented a new car for a dream vacation. While on your getaway, you get into an auto accident...not so dreamy any more, right? Car accidents can happen at any time to anyone under a number of circumstances, even while renting a car on vacation.

Renting cars has become second nature to us. They are no longer just for vacations. We rent cars for work trips, while ours cars or trucks are in the shop, moving or hauling, or when we simply need a different type of vehicle. The problem arises when we get into an accident.

Knowing what to do can be confusing, especially since accidents and insurance is something we don't think about every day. Do the normal rules apply? How is the process different? And what can we do to be prepared?
