TALCUM POWDER

As consumers, we rely upon the safety of many common household goods to enhance the quality of our lives. Talcum powder is one such product that for years has been used to keep skin dry and prevent irritation, especially in young children. In fact, it contains unique properties that unlike other products, is best able to absorb moisture and reduce friction. However, what many people are unaware of is the fact that talcum powder is a dangerous carcinogen, and has been linked to ovarian cancer when used by women for genital hygiene. It has also been associated with causing lung cancer and pulmonary disease in those that regularly inhale the substance (i.e., daycare workers, talc miners, etc.).

CAR WRECKS

When you leave your home in your car each morning to drive to work, school, or other destinations, you probably anticipate arriving safely. However, drivers who are distracted, intoxicated, drunk, or otherwise unsafe cause 29,989 fatal car accidents throughout the U.S. annually and debilitating injuries to many other drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, or pedestrians. When you are injured in a car accident, the stress, intense pain, and rigors of medical treatment might make dealing with insurance companies and navigating the legal process an afterthought. However, medical bills, lost wages, and vehicle repair costs can intensify your anxiety and interfere with your physical and mental recovery.

Porter & Malouf, P.A. is committed to pursuing justice and the maximum compensation for victims of inattentive and unreasonably careless drivers. Our lawyers work with accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, actuaries, vehicle engineers, and many other recognized leaders in their field to construct compelling cases for our clients.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical malpractice is a doctor’s failure to exercise the degree of care and skill that a physician, surgeon, or any other medical professional would use under routine circumstances. There are a number of factors you should look for when choosing a lawyer in this field. A lawyer can tell you that he or she handles medical malpractice cases, but in reality only a few actually do. You want to be absolutely sure that the lawyer you hire really handles this type of case.

 

NURSING HOME ABUSE

Abuse and neglect happen more often in nursing homes than many people would like to believe. In the U.S., there are over 34 million people over the age of 65 that need some form of assisted living, whether it is a nursing home, assisted living facility or other elderly facility. Approximately one million senior citizens are abused in some manner every year. There has been increased awareness that elderly and dependent adults are subject to risks of abuse, neglect and abandonment.

PRODUCT LIABILITY

Products liability law is based on the responsibility of a manufacturer or other provider of goods to compensate users of the goods for injuries caused by defective or dangerous products. Product liability cases usually require preservation of the defective product. There are generally three types of product liability cases: negligence, strict liability and breach of warranty. Pursuing a product liability case is complex and expensive.

 

PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises liability is a broad term that encompasses many types of cases including those involving building design flaws, unsafe interior and exterior conditions, environmental hazards, improper traffic patterns, and a wide range of other issues related to individual security. Premises liability holds owners and occupiers of property legally responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on that property. Incidents that give rise to premises liability claims can range from a slip and fall on a public sidewalk to an injury suffered on an amusement park ride. Depending on the legal rules and principles in place, liability of owners and occupants of property will vary. The court will focus on the status of the injured party in determining the liability of the owner or occupant.

 

18 WHEELER WRECKS

There can be no dispute that an 80,000 pound fully loaded tractor-trailer combination barreling down the interstate poses a serious risk to others navigating Mississippi roadways. Approximately 438,000 large trucks were involved in collisions during the most recent year for which National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics are available. These collisions caused 3,903 fatalities and accounted for 111,000 more injuries. Because a forty ton 18-wheeler can outweigh a passenger car by 26 times, the victims injured or killed in trucking accidents are occupants of other vehicles, bicyclists, or pedestrians in more than four out of every five collisions according to the NHTSA.
