Did tenants suffer from asbestos exposure?

Many of the buildings in Ohio have a rich history, but not all of it may be good. Living in an older apartment building could come with certain risks to the tenants. For instance, if the structure was built decades ago, the risk of asbestos exposure remains a concern. Most residents don't give it a thought since they expect their landlords to ensure they are safe from toxic materials.

Fleeing after vehicle accidents may deny victims justice

Whether due to fear of prosecution, disorientation or some other strong motivation, some drivers flee from crash scenes. Not only does this hinder the investigations of vehicle accidents, but it also keeps victims and their families from understanding what led to the injuries and deaths that happen. Once hit-and-run drivers are in police custody, those victims and families, whether here in Ohio or elsewhere, may find some justice and closure.

Warmer weather often means more all-terrain vehicle accidents

The end of winter and the beginning of warmer weather means Ohio residents are getting outside more just like people elsewhere in the country. Sadly, this could also signal an increase in all-terrain vehicle accidents as people participate in more outdoor activities. Many of these crashes result in severe or fatal injuries, as four people and their families recently discovered.

Food and Drug Administration under scrutiny re foreign-made drugs

More than likely, Ohio residents diagnosed with high blood pressure are more than aware of all of the recalls for their prescribed medications. The recalls have caused a great deal of trepidation for patients and doctors as they try to deal with the shortage of drugs that do not contain the defects that caused the recalls. Now, the Food and Drug Administration is under scrutiny regarding its policies and procedures when it comes to foreign-made drugs.

What life may look like after a rare, asbestos-related cancer

One of the first things that people diagnosed with mesothelioma hear is that this particular condition is incurable, and often terminal. Nearly everyone who contracts this rare cancer does so through exposure to asbestos. Those fortunate enough to survive through their treatment protocol never quite return to their normal lives.

One driver's actions can lead to vehicle accidents

People who do not take their obligation to drive safely seriously endanger everyone on the road, whether they live here in Ohio or elsewhere. It only takes one driver failing to pay attention due to distraction, impairment or fatigue to cause a crash. The resulting vehicle accidents could end with at least one person dead and several others injured.

Stop signs are not a suggestion and prevent car accidents

Traffic signals and signs are not designed to aggravate or inconvenience drivers. In Ohio and elsewhere, their primary intent is to control the flow of traffic and prevent car accidents. When drivers fail to heed them, they put the lives of everyone in their vicinity at risk for serious or fatal injuries.

What patients should know about all these FDA drug recalls

In the last year, numerous medications have been recalled due to impurities, manufacturing and contamination. The most notable involve several blood pressure medications that the Food and Drug Administration says contain chemicals that could cause cancer. There is no hard estimate from the FDA or the manufacturers regarding when supplies will be replenished, but the bigger worry for many patients here in Ohio and elsewhere is what they need to know about all these recalls.

What parts of the body are affected by asbestos-related cancer?

Ohio residents who suffered from asbestos exposure at some point in their lives could live for years, decades in fact, wondering whether that exposure will come back to haunt them. The possibility of contracting a rare asbestos-related cancer called mesothelioma could loom over their heads for up to 50 years. The question that could be on their minds is what parts of the body this cancer affects.

Failing to obey traffic signs often leads to vehicle accidents

Traffic signs, particularly those at intersections, are designed to control the flow of vehicles, pedestrians and others. When drivers obey these signs, they increase the odds of avoiding vehicle accidents. On the other hand, when those signs are ignored, or a driver obeys them but misinterprets or fails to see the traffic, crashes happen.
