Nationwide recall issued for child sandals and bike racks

Posted on December 18th, 2013 No Comments

A line of infant sandals and bicycle racks are among the latest dangerous products to be recalled nationwide.

Falls Creek brand is recalling its “Susan” sandal. The sandals are intended for toddlers ages 3 months to 12 months. The top strap has been deemed a choking hazard since it can easily be extracted from the shoe.

The recalled bicycle racks were used to connect children’s trailer bikes to adult bicycles. The racks were available for purchase from November 2011 through September 2013. They are being recalled because of their susceptibility to breakage.

Consumers should hold manufacturers responsible should they sustain injuries due to defective products. If your child has been injured by a dangerous toy in the Louisville area, contact the Sampson Law Firm. Speak with one of our experienced attorneys today by calling 502-584-5050.

Louisville car accident kills one

Posted on November 22nd, 2013 No Comments

A motor vehicle crash at the intersection of 26th and Chestnut in Louisville, Kentucky that occurred on the afternoon of Sunday, November 17 resulted in the death of one person and the injury of another.

The Metro police identified a male driver who was speeding in his Monte Carlo north on 26th Street, causing him to crash into a female driver’s Hyundai after failing to stop at a red light. The impact caused the Hyundai to spin around and the Monte Carlo to strike a telephone pole.

According to witnesses, they weren’t able to hear tires screeching before the Monte Carlo and the Hyundai collided, which led them to believe that the driver of the Monte Carlo did not bother to hit the breaks to avoid an accident.

The male driver died at the scene of the accident, while the female was hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries.

Narcotic painkillers recommended to be more restricted by the FDA

Posted on November 1st, 2013 No Comments

On Thursday, October 24 the U.S. Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) recommended instituting new regulations that would tighten the reins on usage of painkillers that contain the narcotic hydrocone. These drugs are used to administer relief for injury, dental extractions, arthritis pain, and more. Around 47 million people were prescribed hydrocone-containing drugs in 2011.

It was found out that hydrocone-containing drugs form 70% of all opioid prescriptions, and that they were widely abused because of the lax restrictions imposed on them.

In effect, the new regulations would halve the drug supply that a patient can obtain without a doctor’s prescription, making it 90 days. At present, a patient can refill a prescription five times over a six-month period before he will be required to obtain a new prescription.

The FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research director Dr. Janet Woodcock said the new regulations will likely go into effect next year.

Johnson & Johnson recalls infant Motrin due to dangers of plastic particles

Posted on September 14th, 2013 No Comments

New Jersey-based health care company Johnson & Johnson is recalling 200,000 half-ounce bottles of Motrin due to the danger that they may carry shards of plastic particles, according to the Associated Press on September 7. According to the company, no injuries have yet to be reported to date.

McNeil vice president Ed Kuffner said in an interview with the Associated Press that they issued the recall because the products were obtained in the same shipment of ibuprofen, products that actually contained the particles, from a third-party supplier, and they believe that the third party supplier’s manufacturing process had something to do with why the products were tainted in the first place.

The recalled bottles have the lot numbers DCB3TO1, DDB4RO1, and DDB4SO1. Kuffner said consumers should stop using the tampered product and call them for a refund at 1-877-414-7709.

Suffering from the effects of using a faulty product may be harmful to your health at the slightest and fatal at worst; however, with the help of our Louisville attorneys from the Sampson Law Firm, you might be able to get compensation for the undue suffering you have suffered.
