Lawsuits & The RMS Titanic Disaster
If you didn't know, Tuesday was the 102-year anniversary of the Titanic disaster. One of the social media posts I saw on the topic had a comment “If the Titanic disaster happened today, there would be so many lawsuits.” While this statement is supposed to be a condemnation of today’s “litigious society,” it shows a (quite common) misunderstanding of the civil justice system. If everyone owned up to their mistakes, played fair and paid for the harms they've caused, we wouldn't have to file lawsuits. Unfortunately, that’s not how the world works. A lawsuit is oftentimes the only way of compelling a negligent company to pay for the harm that they've caused.
Were lawsuits filed against the RMS Titanic (White Star Line)? Absolutely. Survivors and families of those killed filed claims totaling about $16 million.

Negligence vs Gross Negligence
The essential element in any personal injury case is proving negligence. What's more difficult is being able to make the determination of gross negligence.

The possibility of daycare abuse is something that we do not like to consider and daycare deaths even less so, but staying informed is the best defense.

Australian Woman Texts, Hits Cyclist With Car, Says She "Doesn't Care"
A 21-year old Australian woman who texted on her phone 44 times while driving on a short errand hit a cyclist, severely injured him, and was then quoted as saying she just didn't care.

After striking the cyclist from behind, fracturing his spine and more, she neglected to help him and instead parked 300 feet away and called police.

U.S. House of Representatives Committee Releases >600 Pages of Documents Related to GM Recall

Remember how it came out a few months ago that a top GM engineer first encountered the ignition switch problem with the Cobalt way back in 2004? It turns out that engineer was none other than Gary Altman, the program engineering manager for the Cobalt in 2004 and 2005, and one of two engineers currently suspended with pay as part of the investigation.

According to these documents, Altman inadvertently turned off the car after bumping it with his knee. However, he later testified in the lawsuit filed by the family of Cobalt victim Brooke Melton that he did not feel the car was unsafe, and was the one who rejected a fix for the ignition switch because it was too expensive and would take too long.

It makes you wonder what it would take for Altman to consider a car unsafe then.
Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee tasked with investigating the timeline of the General Motors ignition switch recall released more than 600 pages of documents related to the issue. Jalopnik's review of these documents reveal deeply entrenched problems at the automaker.

In November of 2013 the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published the results of a study that indicated testosterone therapy causes an increase in a person’s risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.

On January 31, 2014, the #FDA announced it is conducting research into the risk factors of heart attack, stroke, and death in men using testosterone products.

According to a January 2014 study the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism published, many men in the United States receive testosterone treatments even when their levels are normal or only underwent one test.
Recent developments in the medical field have provided documentation of serious conditions related to testosterone therapy. Our Dallas lawyers can explain.

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is facing a million-dollar lawsuit on behalf of a Carrollton, Texas man who fell on stairs at the museum and who is now a quadriplegic.

The #lawsuit, filed Thursday, says the museum failed to make a portion of the stairs safe, and the man's attorney says the museum focused too much on aesthetics when the museum was designed and built, rather than on safety.
