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 PhysicianÂ’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 PhysicianÂ’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.

Kitchens could be sources of drug-resistant bacteria
16 Apr 2014 at 11:29am
By Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Cutting boards used to prepare raw poultry may be an important source of drug-resistant bacteria in hospital kitchens and private homes, according to a new study. The more bacteria are exposed to antibiotics, the higher the chance they will develop resistance to the drugs. Unnecessary exposure can happen in humans who take antibiotic drugs they don't need, like for the common cold, which is caused by a virus and not affected by antibiotics. It can also happen when large numbers of livestock are given feed laced with antibiotics to help them grow faster and larger.

Pill developed to fight measles passes key test in animals
16 Apr 2014 at 11:13am
In the study, all of the ferrets were infected with canine distemper virus, which is closely related to measles. "The emergence of strong antiviral immunity in treated animals is particularly encouraging, since it suggests that the drug may not only save an infected individual from disease but contribute to closing measles immunity gaps in a population," Dr. Richard Plemper of Georgia State University said in a statement. The drug was developed specifically for measles. Plemper said it wasn't possible to test the drug against the measles virus because there is no model that replicates human measles in animals.

Obama's departing health chief mulls U.S. Senate run: report
16 Apr 2014 at 10:49am

Departing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who took withering criticism over the botched rollout of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, is considering a run for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, The New York Times reported on Wednesday. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor, is weighing overtures from Democrats who want her to run for the Senate seat occupied by Republican Pat Roberts, the newspaper said, quoting unidentified Democrats. A run for the Senate would be a bold move in a solidly Republican state after Sebelius oversaw the introduction last October of the policy known as Obamacare, becoming a lightning rod for critics of the health insurance reform law. Republicans have made problems with the health care law, which they view as a step towards socialized medicine, as the central theme of their campaign to wrest control of the Senate away from Democrats and strengthen their grip on the House of Representatives.

Federal judge strikes down North Dakota 'heartbeat' abortion law
16 Apr 2014 at 10:46am
(Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday permanently blocked North Dakota from enforcing the country's most restrictive abortion law, a ban on ending a pregnancy once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks after conception. North Dakota's only abortion clinic had challenged the law approved by the state legislature in 2013, and U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland last July had temporarily blocked it from taking effect. "The state of North Dakota has presented no reliable medical evidence to justify the passage of this troubling law," Hovland wrote in a 25-page opinion released on Wednesday. Hovland said the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized the constitutional right of women to end a pregnancy before the fetus is determined to be viable for more than 40 years and the federal court is obligated to uphold that precedent.

AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young takes leave due to illness
16 Apr 2014 at 10:45am

AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young will take a break from the Australian hard rock group he founded because of ill health, the band said in a statement on Wednesday. The pioneering group dispelled speculation that they would disband after Young, 61, took his leave, saying "the band will continue to make music." "Malcolm would like to thank the group's diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support," the group said in a statement. The band did not say what sort of illness Young was suffering from or whether it would cease from touring without one of its founding members. The Scotland-born Young founded AC/DC with his younger brother, Angus, in 1973.

U.S. consumer groups win unsealing of lawsuit over infant death
16 Apr 2014 at 10:06am
(Reuters) - In a victory for consumers, a federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered the unsealing of litigation about a product whose use led to the death of an infant. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a lower court judge was wrong to let the product's manufacturer, known in court papers as Company Doe, keep the case brought by the Consumer Product Safety Commission under wraps. The case was the first legal challenge to the CPSC's implementation of a public database for reports of unsafe products, which had been mandated under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. Three consumer advocacy groups - the Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union and Public Citizen - sought to unseal records of the case and the identity of the manufacturer, but U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams in Greenbelt, Maryland allowed the case to be tried pseudonymously.

Abbott Laboratories profit beats forecast, but sales lag
16 Apr 2014 at 9:35am
Abbott Laboratories Inc reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Wednesday, but combined sales of its nutritional products, medical devices and generic medicines were slightly below Wall Street expectations. Analysts, on average, were expecting 36 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Wells Fargo analyst Lawrence Biegelsen said operating expenses of $2 billion in the quarter were $100 million below his forecasts, and bolstered results. Shares were up 0.4 percent at $38.14 in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange, amid a 0.7 percent gain for the ARCA Pharmaceutical Index of large drugmakers. "But management is very confident that business will accelerate in the remainder of the year, led by nutritionals, where they should be able to recapture market share." Sales of nutritional products, the company's biggest product line which includes Similac infant formula and Ensure beverages for adults, fell 4 percent to $1.63 billion in the quarter.
