The $1 billion award in a number of hip implant lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson has been cut in half by a federal judge. U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade in Dallas recently cut the $1 billion verdict in half. Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics division had been ordered to pay the sum but Kinkeade cited “constitutional considerations,” which limits the amount that plaintiffs can be compensated in such cases. The six lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson and DePuy alleged that the companies’ hip implants caused injury to patients. Staff Report, Reuters 01/04/2017
The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled that a woman can file a wrongful death lawsuit over a miscarriage she suffered in June 2012. This reaffirmed the state high court’s previous ruling that children are protected by Alabama’s wrongful death law from the point of conception. The lawsuit alleged that the plaintiff’s doctor caused her to miscarry because he treated her for the wrong kind of pregnancy. According to the lawsuit, the doctor treated the plaintiff for an ectopic pregnancy, when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus. However, the lawsuit alleges that the drugs used to treat the presumed ectopic pregnancy caused the woman to miscarry her child. Kent Faulk, AL.com 01/03/2017
Why “Free Consultations” Or “Personally Returned Phone Calls” Should Not Be A Selling Point When Choosing Your Lawyer
Most personal injury lawyers offer free consultations and personally return calls. I do too. I have to to figure out if you have a case worth taking. The only way to do that is to talk to you! Below are the real questions you should be asking yourself when looking for a lawyer which are answered in the book on accident law:1. “Do I even need a lawyer for my case?”2. “What kind of lawyer is best for my case?”3. “How do I choose a lawyer?”4. “How does the attorney relationship work?”
The Alabama Rules of Professional Conduct require the following language to be posted: “No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.” Also, “These recoveries and testimonials are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.”
