2016 sees many injuries, fatalities in Texas work zones

While road construction may always be going on in Texas, summer is when many people may notice an increase in orange cones and barrels as they make their commute to or from work, travel to one of the state's many theme parks and recreational areas, run their errands or simply go to visit friends and family. While a person may worry that having to slow down in a construction zone will make them late or at the very least make them aggravated, it is important to remember that the reduced speeds in construction zones are meant to keep both motorists and construction workers safe.

Unfortunately, there will be those who choose to drive faster than the posted speed limit in a construction zone, tailgate other drivers or talk on their cell phone. Any of these behaviors can lead to an accident that injures or kills another person. And, as 2016 statistics from the Texas Department of Transportation show, this is not an insignificant problem.

Dangerous side effects may outweigh potential drug benefits

Something may have been bothering you for a while. It could be fatigue, not sleeping at all, severe body aches or pains, migraines or even something more severe. You go to your doctor and find out you have an illness or condition. What if you were given medication by your doctor? You trust your doctor and his treatment suggestions, but how would you know if it is indeed safe to take?

 Medication is supposed to help

Wrongful death suit may be right when a defective drug kills

Medicine is designed to help Texans get better. In most instances, medicine does just that. But not always. Some Texans take medicine thinking it will help them heal when that medicine actually exacerbates their problems or creates a new, deadly one.

Widely prescribed drug may cause birth defects

Pregnant women are probably aware that many drugs can be bad for a fetus. Not all medications are safe to take during pregnancy, so it is imperative that drug companieslabel their products correctly. When a pregnant woman unknowingly takes an unsafe medication, the results can be serious for mother and baby alike.

What is a dangerous drug?

Houston residents are prescribed thousands of prescription drugs each year by their medical providers. People need these drugs to stay healthy or to recover from an illness. But occasionally medication cause dangerous drug side effects to unsuspecting consumers. So what is a dangerous drug?

What do you not know about drugs in the U.S.?

Most Houston residents take a prescription drug at some point in their life. These drugs are necessary in order to recover from an illness, cure a disease or maintain a person's health. We take these medications because medical providers have told us that they will help. And, fortunately, most of the time the drugs do help. But occasionally they do not help; instead, they cause unintended side effects and even death.

What do you need to know about recalls?

Some days it seems like every time you turn around in Houston there's another product that has been recalled. There are recalls for cars, toys, baby products, food and many other products. Drug recalls also occur and some of these can be serious. So what should a consumer know about recalls?

What are some common ways in which drugs harm Texans?

It seems like there is a pill to cure all ailments. But just because Texans cannot turn on their television or open a magazine without being flooded with ads pressing drug after drug does not mean that each of these drugs has a flawless track record. Quite the opposite. Defective drugs and medicine are often at the center of product-liability lawsuits.

What actions constitute a medical device recall?

While medical devises could provide many benefits to patients in Texas and elsewhere, it is possible that these devices fail to work in the way they were designed to. In these matters, a recall is likely issued, however, such a measure may not prevent serious or even fatal injuries from occurring because of a defective medical device.
