Aggressive driving is a term used to describe driving that is dangerous and without regard for the safety of other motorists.  Tailgating, speeding, and cutting off other drivers are all examples of aggressive driving.

How Do Drug Recalls Work?

Published on Mar 29, 2018 at 5:20 pm in Medical Malpractice.

Many people depend on medication to keep them healthy and safe. Whether they’re taking prescription drugs every day, a short while to fight an illness, or over the counter drugs, people expect them to be safe and do their jobs. But this isn’t always the case. When there are issues with a drug, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) will issue a recall, but that doesn’t undo the damage that’s already been done.

If you or a loved one has been injured because of a recalled drug, you’re probably focused on healing and getting back to normal life as soon as possible. But if the drug has kept you from working or has caused you a lot of pain, this might not be so easy.

You can seek legal aid from a Paducah pharmaceutical litigation lawyer at Daryl T. Dixon Law. We understand what you’re going through was caused by someone else’s negligence and that you deserve compensation for pain and suffering and lost wages. You can take a stand against drug companies so they don’t make these mistakes again.

Examining the Opioid Crisis: What Are My Options?

Published on Feb 5, 2018 at 6:22 pm in Legal Information.

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to respond to an article a friend, Nick Rishwain, wrote about Kentucky’s opioid crisis and Attorney General Andy Beshear’s complaint that was recently filed against McKesson Corp., one of the major pharmaceutical corporations that is responsible for manufacturing prescription painkillers. According to the complaint, McKesson Corp. helped “fuel the opioid epidemic by failing to halt shipments of suspiciously large or frequent orders by pharmacies of prescription painkillers.”

In his article, Nick, legal technology expert, examined how the lawsuit will likely proceed, what both sides may try and argue, and how those arguments may take place. There’s no denying the fact that lawsuits like these will take up a ton of news headline space in the weeks, months, and even years to come. We have a great deal of work ahead of us to put an end to opioid overdoses, and our work is just beginning—here in Kentucky and nationwide.
