Attorney Joe Pierotti Obtains $122,500 Settlement for Client with Permanent Chronic Pain

Attorney Joseph PierottiThis case involved two defendants. The first defendant lost control of their vehicle, drove it off of the road, and struck a street light, causing the street light pole to fall into the roadway and into the path of travel of our client. Our client then struck the fallen street light pole. A few seconds later, the second defendant rear-ended our client’s stopped vehicle at approximately 30 MPH. Our client sustained injuries primarily to her neck, including a small central disc protrusion with radiculopathy, which required physical therapy. When physical therapy provided the client with minimal relief, she began treatment with an interventional pain physician, which involved various medications and injections to correct the issues resulting from the car accident injuries. After concluding that the client had permanent chronic pain, Attorney Joe Pierotti was able to settle the cases with both defendants, resulting in a settlement of $122,500.

Talcum Powder Dangers

Talcum powderTalcum powder is made from talc, a mineral containing magnesium and silicon that are mined in rock form. The powder is made by crushing, drying, and milling the rock into a fine powder. Talcum powder has been marketed and sold to absorb moisture and reduce friction, and has been used for diaper rash and chafing.

For some time, medical professionals have known that talcum powder is dangerous for babies and children to breath, but now women are claiming that fine-powder products gave them ovarian cancer. Lawsuits have been filed again Johnson & Johnson, a talcum powder distributor, for failure to warn of the potential danger.

Studies regarding talc and ovarian cancer started in the 1970’s. Since then, many more studies have been conducted and most of the studies indicate that talc-based powders, when used by women long term to keep moisture, odor, and chafing under control, are associated with ovarian cancer. It is believed that talc powder can travel to the ovaries and become embedded in the ovarian tissue. Although talc is a natural mineral, it is difficult for the body to remove the particles. As a result, inflammation may occur and cancerous tumors may form. In additional to the risk of ovarian cancer, talc powder can also contribute to respiratory problems and talcosis.

Despite almost all of the research that has found talc powder to be dangerous, Johnson & Johnson and other talc powder manufacturers have not placed warning about the risk on their products.

If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and your medical professional believes talc may have caused your cancer, please contact the Attorneys at Davis & Gelshenen, LLP at 866-427-2121 for a free consultation.

  • Your car is most likely to be stolen over the weekend, with Saturday and Sunday as the top two days, followed by Monday.
  • During the holiday season, the week of Thanksgiving shows a significant jump in claims. With many people traveling and shopping, there is an increase of motorists on the roads.
  • Data found that the Sunday after Thanksgiving has the highest percentage of out-of-state accidents of any day during Thanksgiving week.
  • According to the NHTSA, travelling and a higher number of alcohol-impaired drivers cause nearly twice the number of automotive deaths during summer months than during the rest of the year combined.
  • Nine of the 10 deadliest days for youth on U.S. highways fall between May and August.

Although accidents can happen at any time, data trends can show us when extra precaution may be needed. When driving, it is important to always be alert, wear a seatbelt, and follow the rules of the road.
