Attorneys Michael D. Marrese and John M. Phillips of Morgan & Morgan Recover $939,276.78 Verdict for Woman Injured in Car Accident

(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 05, 2010 ) Jacksonville, FL - Morgan and Morgan trial attorneys Michael D. Marrese and John M. Phillips have recovered a $939,276.78 verdict on behalf of their client, a woman who was injured in an auto accident. As a result of these injuries, she has had to undergo extensive medical treatment and will need medication for the rest of her life.

On August 13, 2008, a 31-year-old mother of two was rear-ended at a stop light on Atlantic Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida. The next day, she sought treatment from her primary care doctor, as well as chiropractic treatment and pain pain management care from Physician’s Group. In April 2009, she had a two level percutaneous laser microdiscectomy performed on her lower back in Tampa, Florida. She continued to treat with Physician’s Group for Piriformis Syndrome, a painful condition that affects her left hip. She has had between 12 to 15 pain injections in her back and hip and will require pain medications for life. A jury in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida awarded her $939,276.78 in damages.

This case was tried by attorneys Michael D. Marrese and John M. Phillips of Morgan and Morgan.

Air pollution to kill millions more without change of energy policy: IEA
26 Jun 2016 at 4:15pm

By Nina Chestney LONDON (Reuters) - Premature deaths from air pollution will continue to rise to 2040 unless changes are made to the way the world uses and produces energy, the International Energy Agency said on Monday. Around 6.5 million deaths globally are attributed each year to poor air quality inside and outside, making it the world's fourth-largest threat to human health, behind high blood pressure, dietary risks and smoking. Harmful pollutants such as particulate matter - which can contain acids, metals, soil and dust particles - sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides, are responsible for the most widespread effects of air pollution.

Factbox: Major U.S. Supreme Court abortion rights cases
26 Jun 2016 at 5:06am
(Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court's key rulings on abortion, dating to the landmark 1973 decision that legalized the procedure nationwide, have long provoked social, religious and political tensions. As the court majority became more conservative over the decades, it set standards that enhance states' ability to regulate abortion. Here is a look at the court's major abortion rulings.


U.S. Supreme Court poised to issue major abortion ruling
26 Jun 2016 at 5:03am

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court is due on Monday to issue its first major abortion ruling since 2007 against a backdrop of unremitting divisions among Americans on the issue and a decades-long decline in the rate at which women terminate pregnancies. The court's decision on whether a Republican-backed 2013 Texas law placed an undue burden on women exercising their constitutional right to abortion is one of three remaining cases for the court to decide on Monday, the last day of its term. The last time the justices decided a major abortion case was nine years ago when they ruled 5-4 to uphold a federal law banning a late-term abortion procedure.

26 Jun 2016 at 1:22am

The World Bank said on Sunday it has approved $150 million in additional financing to help improve Bangladesh's health systems and services, bringing its total support for health projects in the country to $508.9 million.

Bangladesh has reduced under-five child mortality by 29 percent between 2007 and 2014, and during the same period, births attended by medically trained professionals increased from 21 percent to 42 percent.



Opposition Labour health policy chief resigns after Brexit vote
26 Jun 2016 at 12:53am

The health policy chief of Britain's Labour Party resigned on Sunday, saying the country needed a credible opposition after voting to leave the European Union and that she did not believe party leader Jeremy Corbyn could provide it. "As much as I respect you as a man of principle, I do not believe you have the capacity to shape the answers our country is demanding and I believe that if we are to form the next Government, a change of leadership is essential," Heidi Alexander wrote to Corbyn in a letter she posted on Twitter. Alexander's resignation comes after Labour's foreign policy chief Hilary Benn also told Corbyn he had lost confidence in his leadership, prompting Corbyn to sack Benn.

Pope urges Armenia and Turkey to reconcile, shun vengeance
25 Jun 2016 at 10:30am

By Philip Pullella and Margarita Antidze YEREVAN (Reuters) - Pope Francis urged Armenia and Turkey on Saturday to seek reconciliation and to shun "the illusory power of vengeance" a century after 1.5 million Armenians were massacred in the dying days of the Ottoman Empire. Francis made the appeal in an evening prayer service with leaders of the Armenian Apostolic Church on the second day of a trip in which he has risked Turkey's anger by labeling the events of 1915 a genocide, a term Ankara rejects.



Brazil's Temer says women should retire earlier than men: paper
25 Jun 2016 at 10:08am

Brazil's interim President Michel Temer told local newspapers women should retire earlier than men, explaining why he did not support making a potential minimum retirement age equal for both sexes as his government tackles pension reform. "A little difference is reasonable," Temer said according to an interview published in O Globo newspaper on Saturday. "The woman, in addition to outside work, does the inner work in the home, she is a mother, etc., sometimes cares for siblings." Former Vice President Temer took over from President Dilma Rousseff, Brazil's first female leader, after she was placed on trial in the Senate for breaking budget rules last month.



Global doping agency suspends Rio lab weeks before Olympics
25 Jun 2016 at 1:44am

By Pedro Fonseca RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has suspended the credentials of a testing laboratory in Rio de Janeiro for failing to comply with international standards, just over a month before the city hosts the Olympic Games. Although the suspension adds to embarrassments for Brazil in the runup to the Olympics, it is unlikely to affect the Games since the agency has arranged testing elsewhere, as it did when the same Rio lab lost its credentials before the 2014 World Cup. The lab at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro said on Friday that its operations should return to normal in July after a technical visit from WADA, ahead of the start of the Games on Aug. 5.



China tightens controls on paid-for internet search ads
24 Jun 2016 at 10:12pm

China's internet regulator said on Saturday that search engines should tighten management of paid-for ads in search results, making clear which results are paid-for and limiting their numbers. Chinese regulators last month imposed limits on the number of lucrative healthcare adverts carried by Baidu Inc following the death of a student who underwent an experimental cancer treatment which he found using China's biggest internet search engine. Wei Zexi, 21, died in April of a rare form of cancer, and the case sparked widespread public anger.



Arizona says it has run out of drugs for executions
24 Jun 2016 at 6:52pm

The Arizona Department of Corrections' supply of midazolam, a sedative, expired on May 31 and it has not been able to replace it, state lawyers said in the filing in Phoenix's U.S. District Court. "What is more, the Department's source of midazolam has vanished under pressure from death penalty opponents," the court document said. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of seven death-row inmates who allege that Arizona's use of midazolam and two other drugs violate the U.S. Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
