On January 20, 2015 our client broke his leg when he was hit by an SUV while he was attempting to purchase an automobile at an auto auction. The driver of the SUV was a worker sent over by Pacesetter to drive cars at the Manheim Big H auction center. Our client was safely crossing the road when he was struck by a Ford Explorer being driven by the defendant.
Our client was back to work in just 9 months. He turned to Jim Hart and Steve Kherkher to handle his case and handle the case they did.
Steve and Jim spent many long nights strategizing and prepping for trial. After a rigorous trial before Harris County 55th District Court Judge Shadwick, the jury came back with a UNANIMOUS decision in favor of the plaintiff. They awarded the client $750,000 for pain and suffering as well as $750,000 for physical impairment for a whopping total of $1.5 million dollars.
Here at Williams Kherkher, we are so proud of Jim and Steve and the work they put in on behalf of their client and know they will do the same for you or your family members.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about the potential risk of teething tablets and gels to infants and children.
Specifically, the agency urged consumers to temporarily stop using homeopathic tablets and gels after numerous deaths related to the tablets occurred. The products included in the recall were tested by the FDA and found to contain belladonna.
Recently, Hyland’s, a manufacturer of homeopathic teething products, announced it will stop distributing teething tablets and gels in the U.S. following the precautionary warning by the FDA. In a statement released by the company, the manufacturer insisted the products were safe for use because they contained only a tiny amount of belladona, a toxin derived from a poisonous plant. The FDA is urging its consumers to consult with a physician before using any medicine. For a full description of the products included in the recall, you can visit the FDA website.
If your child was affected by Hyland’s homeopathic teething products, we at Williams Kherkher can help you draft a legal case against them. Get in touch with us at (888) 220-0640 to discuss your situation.
The US Food and Drug Administration pushes hospitals to streamline their process of reporting problems related to medical devices.
After receiving reports about the potential risk of using hysterectomy surgery devices, the FDA is said to be enhancing the agency’s current reporting system by determining how a medical device causes deaths or injuries. They are also looking at the possibility of forcing all hospitals to submit death and injury reports related to the issue.
The FDA is currently targeting laparoscopic morcellators following the death of a 51-year-old woman who died from uterine cancer. According to reports, the Brigham and Women’s Hospital did not report a case in which a power morcellator reportedly triggered the proliferation of cancer cells in the patient’s body. Meanwhile, the U.S. Government Accountability Office is currently conducting an investigation and will be releasing a report in January.
If you or someone you know has developed cancer after undergoing a surgery involving a power morcellator, get in touch with a lawyer from Williams Kherkher at (888) 220-0640.
