New York Personal Injury Lawyer Seeks to Protect Bicyclists From Harm




New York (PRWEB) May 21, 2009

As subway fares and the cost of gas rise , more and more people are using bicycles to get around the city. Bicyclists need to know the safety laws. They also need to know their rights.

David Perecman, a leading New York personal injury lawyer based in Manhattan, can tell you how dangerous it can be to cycle on New York’s busy streets. One among the most respected New York personal injury attorneys, Perecman has seen his share of bicycling accident victims.

“Often times, the drivers blame the bicyclists even though they were doing nothing more than riding the bike. And, in many cases, personal injury victims take blame for the accidents in which they’re the victim,” says personal injury lawyer Perecman.

Not surprisingly, the majority of accidents that occur between bicycles and motor vehicles are the fault of the motorist. A New York City survey completed in 2005 cites poor driving, particularly driver inattention, as the major contributing factor to these crashes which often result in personal injury.

In New York City, there are approximately 23 fatal bicycle accidents a year, according to a published government report. Most recently, on May 6, 2009, Stephen Hoadnett, a 40-year old Englishman died after being hit by a 10-wheeler truck while riding his bicycle in Richmond Hill.

An injured cyclist will need to find a personal injury lawyer with vast experience handling personal injury accident litigation in New York, or they may find themselves without a bicycle and without the appropriate personal injury settlement they may deserve.

New York personal injury lawyers, many of them bicyclists themselves, support and promote a more bicycle friendly environment.

Product Liability Attorney Advising ASR Hip Replacement Recall Victims on Ways to Protect Themselves from Further Harm



Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2010 –

ASR hip implants manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedic, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson have been recalled in the United States and Worldwide. The medical device company issued the hip implant recall after an independent research study released by the National Joint Registry found that the ASR hip implant had failure rates of up to 13%, well above the acceptable average.

According to the study, out of the 93,000 ASR hip replacement patients, 12,000 may experience hip replacement failure within 5 years. Most hip implants last for 15-20 years on average. Victims of the ASR hip implant recall may require a painful second revision surgery to correct the failing hip implant.

An investigative report released by the New York Times in 2008 revealed that hip replacement surgery is an intensive medical treatment costing up to ,000, requiring 2-4 days of hospitalization and months of physical therapy rehabilitation.

To protect the rights of hip replacement recall victims, the California product liability lawyers of Nagelberg Bernard Law Group have compiled the following information on steps to take if affected by the ASR Hip Recall. http://www.4injured-losangeles.com/practice-areas/product-liability/hip-replacement-recall/

1. Find Out If You Have a Recalled ASR Hip Implant

Contact your doctor or the hospital that performed the hip implant surgery to determine if your hip replacement implant was involved in the ASR hip replacement recall.

2. Which Defective Hip Implant Devices Are Being Recalled?

The hip implant recall involves all of the devices used in DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.’s ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing Platform.

3. What are the Symptoms of Hip Implant Failure?

Defective hip implants can cause crippling pain and impair the quality of life for those affected by the hip implant recall. Hip implant failure can cause bone fractures, hip joint dislocation, inflammation, infection, and extreme discomfort.

4. How Many People Are Affected by the Hip Implant Recall?

The National Joint Registry, an independent medical research team has discovered that 1 out of every 8 hip replacement patients will likely require a second hip implant operation, called a revision surgery. Out of the 93,000 people that have undergone hip implant surgery with an ASR Hip Implant, an estimated 12,000 may now require the hip replacement revision surgery.

5. Should I Speak with a DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Representative?

Never speak to any DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. or Johnson & Johnson representatives or sign any documents. Anything you say or any documents that you sign may endanger your personal injury claim and be used against you as evidence in court.
