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.

5 Common Kentucky Motorcycle Accident Myths Debunked

Published on Oct 2, 2017 at 5:05 pm in Motorcycle Accidents.

Kentucky motorcyclists love sharing the open road with one another and enjoying the fresh air as it sweeps past their bikes. There’s nothing quite like a weekend motorcycle trip. One other thing bikers in our state share, unfortunately, is a great deal of public misinformation. A surprisingly large percentage of drivers of passenger vehicles and motorcycles alike are incorrectly informed about motorcyclists and motorcycle accidents.

To help stop the spread of misinformation, here are 5 of the most common motorcycle accident myths and the truths behind them:

  1. Other Drivers Can Easily See Motorcyclists

Many motorcycle riders feel that drivers in passenger vehicles and trucks can easily see their bikes since they have greater visibility and larger mirrors to assist them. This is false. The smaller size of a motorcycle makes it easy for them to hide in a passenger vehicle’s or truck’s blind spots. Furthermore, larger vehicles have more blind spots which can be potentially dangerous.
