A proposed Bayer settlement has been reached in the Bayer Yaz/Yasmin/Ocella Multidistrict Litigation. The multi-million dollar settlement, which has been preliminarily approved by the Court, would provide compensation for 32 claimants. The Settlement Allocation Model employs a point-based system, with points assigned to primary injuries and with injury modifiers that adjust either positively or negatively to calculate each individual client’s allocated award.
“I have to maintain my car?!?” A typical statement out of the mouth of a vehicle-owning teenager. Hanging out with friends, playing video games, listening to music, cruising the neighborhood are all far more important than a simple six month basic preventative maintenance check-up on their vehicle.
"Punish" the other driver..." - possibly for the first time in this country, a judge, The Honorable Richard Eade, right here in Broward County, Florida, recently granted a motion to allow for punitive damages in a civil negligence suit due to the defendant driver’s alleged driving while texting

For almost 40 years, Florida’s Supreme Court has been a model of judicial independence. Judges are appointed, not elected, to the Florida Supreme Court. The process includes significant input from the Florida Bar Association, made of lawyers from all places and sides of the legal arena.
In July 2012, I lectured to a crowd of approximately 300 police officers and employees, prosecutors, and officials in the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement at the 2012 Institute of Police Technology and Management Symposium on Alcohol and Drug Impaired Driving Enforcement in St. Petersburg Beach.
There are just some clubs or groups you would do anything not to join. Believe me, this is one of them. Just got off the phone with a Mirena 'victim'.... we discussed the side effects and made me realize that either the doctors are NOT giving you enough information, or you aren’t asking enough questions about what could possibly happen to you from the hormones in the IUD cartridge.... insomnia, mood swings, night sweats, horrible break-outs, etc.

For years you have heard that lawyers are sharks and that they prey upon folks just like you. They charge huge fees and give you nothing. That they file frivolous lawsuits while their clients remain hurt.
Can you tell me what you are covered for under your automobile insurance policy? You may be surprised, but most people cannot.
As a plaintiff’s attorney who represents those injured by automobiles, I have learned of a new constant other than death and taxes – data flow.

I have spent most of my adult life in the workforce, the majority of the time as a certified paralegal working both plaintiff and defense sides of the fence. My career has been focused on medical issues, whether personal injury from premises liability, product liability, malpractice, or motor vehicle accidents. But up until I started working with Zebersky Payne, I had never come in contact with the atrocities thrown upon women as those dished out by the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies in general.
