Commenting on the GM recall settlement, Elizabeth J. Cabraser of +Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP  stated, "On behalf of our over 100 crash victim clients, we take Ken Feinberg's announcement as positive news, and commend his effort. The announced protocol -- assuming it is administered independently as GM promises -- will provide prompt and reasonable compensation to many ignition switch defect crash victims. Others with strong and serious claims are not-yet-included under the protocol. We hope and continue to urge that the protocol be expanded to include all recall vehicles, that its provisions add flexibility to deal with the realities of actual defect-related crashes, so that it can become a truly effective alternative to litigation for most victims."

Testosterone products can cause dangerous blood clots in the legs, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says, and makers must include a warning on the label. The risk of deep vein thrombosis comes on top of the suspected risks of stroke, heart attack, and death from taking testosterone pills or using testosterone creams.  Learn more about the legal rights of men prescribed testosterone products who suffer heart attacks and stokes at http://www.lieffcabraser.com/Personal-Injury/Drugs/Testosterone-Therapy-Side-Effects.shtml

Commenting on the Supreme Court's denial of the petitions from the cigarette companies, Elizabeth Cabraser stated, "We are pleased with the Supreme Court's decision to deny certiorari in the federal Walker case and the nine state cases, which endorse a fair and efficient process for trials on smoker-specific causation and damages. We greatly appreciate the willingness of the state and federal courts to allow the Engle class -- Florida smokers and their survivors harmed by smoking-related diseases back in the '90s and before, in the era of concealment of tobacco addiction and its deadly consequences -- to have their individual days in court."
