Raptiva and the FDA

Yesterday, the FDA announced the voluntary withdrawal of Raptiva from the US Market by its manufacturer Genentech. According to the FDA, there have been three confirmed and one possible case of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) in people taking Raptiva; three of those people died.

Sources tell us that PML is caused by a virus that affects the central nervous system. PML usually occurs in people whose immune systems have been severely weakened. It leads to an irreversible decline in neurologic function and death.

If you have taken Raptiva for more than three years, you may be entitled to compensation. If you have suffered form PML symptoms, which may include unusual weakness, loss of coordination, changes in vision, difficulty speaking, and personality changes, you may be entitled to compensation.

There is no known effective treatment for PML. Raptiva was approved by the FDA in 2003. It is a once-weekly injection for adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. The drug has been on the market for 6 years.

Are US vehicles still safe?

With so many bailouts by our government to auto manufactures, one cannot help but wonder, if the vehicles that are been produced are safe for the consumers in general. The government is bailing out the industry, but who would bail out the consumers?

According to the associated press, GM and Chrysler, which employ about 140,000 workers in the U.S., have to submit completed restructuring plans, but neither company is expected to finish its work. GM owes roughly $28 billion to bondholders. Chrysler owes about $7 billion in first- and second-term debt, mainly to banks. GM owes about $20 billion to its retiree health care trust, while Chrysler owes $10.6 billion.

With all of these crisis, who is monitoring the automakers products? How many lives are going to be at risk?

Why do we need experts witnesses

Texas Rules of Civil Procedure 192.3(e) creates three categories of experts witnesses. It is important to know the distinction between them in order to use them more efficiently.

The first category is the consulting expert. This is an expert who has been consulted, retained or specially employed by a party in anticipation of litigation or in preparation for trial.

The second category is the reviewed consulting expert. This is an expert whose opinions and mental impressions have been reviewed by the testifying expert.

Finally, the testifying expert. This is an expert that may be called to testify as an expert witness at trial.

The Texas Rules of Civil Procedure create an exception from discovery for the identity, mental impressions and opinions of consulting experts. On the other hand, the rules also designate information that is discoverable regarding reviewed consulting experts and testifying experts.

The utilization of experts in personal injury cases is crucial for the sauces of the case. Our law firm utilizes the most prestigious and knowledgeable experts available.
