Were you affected by the fertility clinic disaster?

Seven hundred families in Ohio received devastating news in early March. A piece of important equipment at the University Hospitals Fertility Clinic malfunctioned, affecting 2,000 human eggs and embryos. For many Cleveland couples who have been struggling with fertility issues, these living tissues were their last chance to have children of their own.

Claire's denies asbestos exposure can happen from its makeup

Depending on who you ask, everyone comes into contact with toxic chemicals and substances, every day whether they live here in Ohio or elsewhere. However, there are some toxic substances, such as asbestos, that most people believe only exist in building materials, brake pads and other industrial products and industries. This makes the results of one study particularly alarming since it reports that asbestos exposure could take place from wearing makeup sold by Claire's, which is a popular place for teens to buy cosmetics.

Crossing the double yellow can lead to deadly car accidents

Whether it is a double yellow line or a median, crossing over into the opposing lane of travel on Ohio's roads is dangerous. Drivers can end up in the wrong lane due to distraction, impairment or simple carelessness, and it is often the occupants of the other vehicle who pay the price. Families change forever in the instant it takes for these often serious or deadly car accidents to take place.

Pharmaceutical litigation news: Opioid deaths continue to rise

Calling the opioid epidemic a crisis may be an understatement. Each year, the number of deaths attributed to these dangerous drugs continues to rise. Pharmaceutical companies marketed these medications as safe, but the reality turned out to be much different for thousands of people across the country, including many here in Ohio. More and more evidence comes to light both through research and pharmaceutical litigation regarding the dangers.

Car accidents: Should a medical condition disqualify a driver?

Many medical conditions suffered by Ohio residents threaten their lives, particularly if they are operating a motor vehicle.

Should a driver be disqualified from driving if he or she suffers from a medical condition?

Will new product give adequate protection from toxic materials?

Construction workers here in Ohio and across the country are exposed to numerous hazards on the job. Their employers should provide them with the best safety equipment possible in order to reduce the potential for injury, including those that come from toxic materials.

Preventing car accidents: Stop signs are not optional

One of the first things that Ohio drivers learn before getting their licenses is that stop signs are not optional. This traffic sign helps keep the flow of traffic moving and prevents vehicles from colliding. When a driver fails to obey this particular traffic law, it can lead to serious or deadly car accidents.

Recent car accident raises Ohio's 2018 road fatalities to 13

Far too many people die on Ohio's roadways. Each year, someone has the unenviable task of keeping track of those fatalities. Every time a car accident occurs that results in a death, that person gets added to the tally for the year. As of March 1, one crash increased the growing total for 2018 to 13.

Kratom considered a hazardous ingredient by the FDA

There is an opioid crisis raging here in Ohio and across the United States. Most of the media coverage surrounding this epidemic involves the use of prescription pain relievers given to patients who often unwittingly become addicted. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently identified a hazardous ingredient in dietary supplements that is causing a substantial amount of concern.

Asbestos exposure still a concern for workers in some industries

Even though this toxic substance is no longer widely used, it still turns up in certain industries here in Ohio as it does elsewhere in the country. As a result, workers in those industries continue to face the possibility of asbestos exposure. The danger from this substance remains high enough that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration continues to enforce regulations regarding the safety of workers when it comes to the use of this naturally occurring mineral fiber.
