2016 Traffic Fatality Totals Are the Worst They’ve Been Since 2008

Published on Nov 16, 2017 at 6:18 pm in Car Accidents.

Many people in the U.S. are losing their lives on the highway. The fatalities have increased, but the main causes of death are the same ones we’re warned about. Drunk driving, speeding, and not wearing seatbelts all contributed to the increased highway fatalities in 2016.

Other people who share the road with cars also lost their lives at a higher rate. Motorcyclist, bicyclist, and pedestrian deaths have increased more than a third since 2008.

Car accidents can be fatal or cause injuries that change your life forever. It’s frustrating when this happens because of another person’s reckless driving behavior. Your injuries could keep you from working or require weeks to recover. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to go through this alone.

Older Adults May Be at Risk for Serious Prescription Drug Reactions

Published on Nov 9, 2017 at 5:14 pm in Product Liability.

When you need medical treatment, taking prescriptions drugs is usually part of it. By the time you’re an adult, you have a good idea of what drugs you’re allergic to or what side effects you experience when you take a specific drug.

But your body changes as you age. Older adults might have a stronger response to a drug than a young adult. This reaction could lead to further health complications.

Drugs sometimes have adverse effects that aren’t clearly advertised on the bottle. Or, pharmaceutical companies might have cut corners with research to push the drug to the market faster. These actions can hurt the people who take them. In these situations, you need an Atlanta product liability lawyer. Bey & Associates will stand up for your rights when a product is defective or dangerous.
