Recalled deli meat could have caused personal injury

Families trust that whatever they purchase at a store is safe for their families. Whether it's medicine, a toy for a child or something to eat, they assume that the item will not harm anyone if used correctly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and people may end up buying something that could injure, sicken or even kill someone they care about. A recent recall of deli meat in a grocery store here in Arizona could have necessitated a personal injury claim if the store hadn't taken action.

Personal injury risk from taco seasoning and salmonella

Consumers trust that the products they buy at stores are safe for them and their families. That trust is particularly important with anything that a person may ingest, such as medicine or food. When a product is exposed to contamination, it can hurt more than just a company's bottom line -- it can endanger people, leading to the possibility of a personal injury claim. This is exactly what could have happened to someone in Arizona after Williams Foods LLC reports that some of its taco seasoning may have been exposed to salmonella.

Study examines causes of medical malpractice

When it comes to health, people generally trust medical professionals to provide them with the highest standard of care. Though the vast majority of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals do everything within their power to help their patients, mistakes can still happen. When they do, they can be deadly. One recent study examined some of the biggest reasons that people have to file medical malpractice claims, and the results may be surprising for Arizona families.

Potential product liability related to children's cough syrup

Arizona parents trust that the products they buy for their children are safe. Generally, products meant for children have been through rigorous testing and have a high set of standards manufacturers must adhere to according to regulations. Unfortunately, there are times when a dangerous product still makes its way to the market, resulting in the potential for products liability claims if someone is harmed. This could have been the outcome of a recent product recall issued by the Food and Drug Administration.

Apple facing product liability claim after fatal iPad fire

By the time a product hits the market, Arizona consumers assume that it is safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, as companies sometimes overlook certain defects in a rush to generate a profit. One product that has faced a great deal of scrutiny in recent years is the lithium-ion battery. These products are frequently used to power electronics such as smartphones or tablets, and manufacturers that make them have been targeted in numerous product liability claims. One woman alleges that a fire caused by a lithium-ion battery is responsible for the death of her father.

Product liability: Fisher-Price recalls thousands of toy cars

Parents generally want only the best for their children. When considering issues around child safety, things like car seats and protective sports gear come to mind. Arizona families trust that what their children play with is completely safe. Unfortunately, toys and other products for kids that can pose a hidden danger sometimes hit the market before they can be stopped, creating the possibility of product liability. Toy company Fisher-Price recently issued a recall for several thousand toy electric cars due to the danger they may pose to kids.

Medical malpractice: Dentist faked anesthesia certification

It is not uncommon for people to have fears in relation to visiting the dentist. Most of the time, dentists are professional and have their patients best interests in mind. However, this area of medical care is not without problematic providers. A recent medical malpractice claim filed here in Arizona illustrates that exact issue, with a patient alleging that his dentist faked certain credentials and put him in harm's way.

Medical malpractice case highlights need for proper patient care

When families here in Arizona need to go to the doctor, they trust that they will be given the best of care. Most of the time, this is exactly what happens -- physicians and other medical experts work to ensure that patients are treated properly and professionally. If a patient is hurt, that trust is irrevocably broken, not to mention the physical and emotional toll that it can take on a victim and his or her family. Medical malpractice is a serious issue, as one recent out-of-state case highlights.
