Trucks are notorious for causing some of the most damaging accidents on the road. Unfortunately, some of these accidents are not as “accidental” as their name entails. In fact, many truck collisions are a direct result of reckless or negligent behaviors that, had they been avoided, could have prevented the accident from occurring altogether.

It never ceases to amaze me how the poor judgment of an adult can lead to disastrous consequences for a child. Particularly with the use of recreational activities, adult carelessness frequently contributes to situations where a child is harmed because the adult watching him or her failed to provide necessary instruction to a child regarding: safe operation of a vehicle; hazards in the area; and the importance of using safety equipment.

Throughout the United States, pedestrians account for the majority of fatalities resulting from train accidents. In 2010, 725 people died on our nation’s railroads.

The Food and Drug Administration voted that the birth control Yaz needed new warnings related to the drugs risk of causing blood clots. On December 8, 2011, Food and Drug Administration panelists voted 21-5 that Bayer’s current labeling on Yaz and Yasmin, (drospirenoen containing drugs,) is “inadequate” and “needs more information” regarding the potential risk of blood clots in the legs and lungs.
As part of their efforts to prevent the injurious consequences of high greenhouse gas emissions, legislators in California passed regulations requiring producers, refiners, and importers of diesel and gasoline to reduce their carbon footprint by 10 percent over a decade. In late December, a federal judge issued an injunction preventing California from enforcing its rules on the grounds that California's regulations were in violation of the Commerce Clause in the United States Constitution.
