Texas Drivers: 20 percent of Texas drivers are uninsured motorists. Full coverage does not mean you are protected - Find out the Two Insurance Types that will Provide you Coverage against Uninsured Motorists There are thousands of auto accidents and trucking accidents in Texas every year and many drivers in Texas may be under the assumption that full coverage protects any accident scenario. As a Texas driver, you should be aware that just because your insurance is full coverage does not mean you are fully protected. But I have full coverage! If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist, even full coverage may not protect you. A recent caller to our office asked if his auto insurance would cover his medical bills when the driver that hit him did not carry any insurance. He said he had "full coverage" and thought that meant his medical bills would be covered. Unfortunately, many Texas drivers may be under this assumption. Like most drivers, the caller thought that "full coverage" includes everything, but in reality the term "full coverage" only means comprehensive, collision and liability coverage. Comprehensive coverage covers the property damage to your car for incidents such as vandalism, theft, flood, hail and fire damage. Collision coverage only covers repairs to your car for any kind of collision including single-car accidents. Liability covers someone else's property damage and injuries if you are deemed at fault for the accident. Uninsured Motorist (UM) and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) There are two types of insurance that will protect you against uninsured motorists. Uninsured Motorist/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) are not included in "full coverage," but you should always ask your agent for UM/UIM and PIP coverage since it is better to be safe than sorry in the event you are hit by an uninsured motorist. About twenty percent of all Texas drivers do not have any insurance to protect you if they injure you in a wreck.

DePuy Update: New Lawsuit Filed for Another DePuy Hip System - Lawsuit Claims Both Hip Systems Defective Patients who received the recalled ASR hip implant systems have filed lawsuits because of DePuy's failed implants, but five people have filed a new lawsuit that targets another of DePuy's hip implant systems. The new lawsuit, filed earlier this month against DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., claims that the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has caused problems for hip implant patients, including elevated metal levels in the blood, disability, severe pain, and other complications. These are similar to complications of the company's ASR hip replacement systems. DePuy's parent company, Johnson & Johnson, has set aside $950 million for DePuy lawsuit litigation. Hip implant patients should be aware that pain months after hip replacement surgery could be a symptom of the recalled defective hip implant. Get answers to your questions on ourDePuy information page , and watch a video to show you why the recalled ASR hip implants are defective. The ASR hip systems were estimated to have failure rates of about 12%, but recent estimates suggest that almost half of the recalled DePuy ASR hip systems may lead to problems within six years, requiring revision surgery.

Ford F-150 recall expanding to almost 1.2 million trucks Ford Motor Co. is expanding a recall of the popular F-150 pickup truck due to air bag issues. Models from 2004 through 2006 are affected by the recall, bringing the estimated number of defective trucks to 1.2 million. An electrical issue may cause the air bags to deploy unexpectedly, injuring drivers. Earlier this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration wanted Ford to recall all 1.2 million trucks, but Ford replied that the full recall was not justified because owners got a warning of the problem from the dashboard's air bag warning light. NHTSA disagreed and Ford officially agreed to the full recall earlier this week. Ford's F-Series pickup truck is a popular brand in America, and the F-150 makes up about 60 percent of F-Series sales. Defective air bags can cause devastating accidents. Recalls of certain products can have harmful, and even fatal, results. You can get updated on the latest product recalls, including the DePuy hip implant recall, by reading our blog. Our firm currently represents patients in Texas and nationwide who have suffered because of recalled products.

Vitamin Overdose can Be Dangerous - Soladek vitamin users urged to stop use Vitamin overdose can have serious consequences. Vitamin A or D overdose can cause fatigue, headache, anemia, birth defects and other problems. The Food and Drug Administration has warned consumers to avoid using Soladek vitamin solution because the product may have dangerously high vitamins levels. The FDA has received seven reports of health issues among consumers using Soladek, with symptoms ranging from vomiting to kidney malfunction. Samples of the vitamin solution may also have unsafe vitamin A and D levels. Those who use Soladek are urged to stop use immediately and contact a doctor if they are experiencing symptoms. Soladek is marketed by a company based in the Dominican Republic called "Indo Pharma S.A." The FDA said the product violates U.S. law because it claims to treat various medical conditions, like rickets and infection, but it has not been proven safe before they were marketed. Many companies put products on the market before conducting proper safety testing. Most companies are looking out for their bottom line, not about consumer safety.
