How to File a Claim for Celebrex Injury

How to File a Claim for Celebrex Injury

by: Jefferson Highway, General Counsel

There is mounting evidence to suggest that Celebrex (aka celecoxib) is linked to an increased risk of blood clots, heart attacks and strokes. Celebrex is one of the newer anti arthritic drugs called COX-2 inhibitors that were launched in the 1990s, and is marketed by Pharmacia Corporation and Pfizer Inc. The drug is prescribed for osteoarthritis, adult rheumatoid arthritis, and menstrual cramps. The FDA is currently taking independent advice on whether these COX-2 inhibitors, and Celebrex in particular, are safe to remain on sale. Current studies “strongly suggest” the COX-2 inhibitors increase the risk of cardiovascular problems, says Dr. Ned Braunstein, senior director of Merck Research Laboratories.

Introduction
Deciding to make a Will and then actually putting the decision into action can be a somewhat stressful, upsetting and daunting task for some people. So it may be a little disconcerting to learn that after you have put all that effort and thought into planning your Will that there might be some opportunity for those left behind to change your instructions and alter your Will. after you are gone. It is a perfectly sound argument to point out that you have the right to leave your possessions to whom you please and therefore why should disgruntled beneficiaries be allowed to change your instructions?

The Hidden Danger of the So-Called “Right to Die”

The Hidden Danger of the So-Called “Right to Die”

by: Terry Mitchell

In October of 2003, the case of 39-year-old Terri Schiavo once again brought into focus the debate over the so-called “right to die.” The Florida woman was temporarily removed from her feeding tube (via a court order received by husband), but was put back on it a few days later when the Florida legislature authorized Governor Jeb Bush to issue a stay. As of this writing, her fate is still being debated in the courts and her case might now be headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. But I wonder if the right to die is something we really want? I always shudder a bit when politicians start talking about giving me more rights. Rights have a funny way of morphing into obligations.
In the state where I live, you can legally make a r...
