Zantac is a popular over-the-counter medication used to treat heartburn. Its generic name is ranitidine, and it has been available since 1981 as a prescription medication. In fact, it was so wildly successful that it was the best-selling prescription by 1987. Eventually, demand for the drug combined with low risk led to its availability as an over-the-counter medication.

Fifteen years ago, the Ohio legislature enacted a law placing a cap on what a jury could determine that a wrongdoer should have to pay to their victim. Since the enactment of that legislation, any time a jury decides the wrongdoer owes the victim more than $250,000 ($350,000 in certain scenarios) in noneconomic damages, the verdict will be reduced by the judge, as required by this law. While there are a few very narrow exceptions to this cap, the majority of civil cases have been significantly impacted by the vise grip that the Ohio legislature has placed on the jury system.

Some employers may require new employees to enter into mandatory arbitration agreements, which prevent claims from being handled in court. Arbitration agreements also reduce many of the legal rights afforded to employees by federal law. Instead, workplace incidents are handled internally. By requiring employees to enter into mandatory arbitration agreements, employers may be able to avoid lawsuits relating to workplace discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.

A husband and wife working for the Michigan Department of Corrections filed a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination and retaliation. The suit resulted in an $11.4 million unanimous jury verdict award. Federal law protects employees from harassment, which includes any instance of discrimination over an individual’s race, ethnicity or marital status. At the law firm of NachtLaw, P.C., we understand how reporting workplace harassment or discrimination may result in an employer retaliating against you.

“The question before the court of appeals was whether the trial court erred in holding that the Andersons could not prove the fault element of their defamation claim. The issue whether the publications were defamatory was not before the court.”

Motor vehicle accidents are increasingly common and increasingly deadly. Yesterday, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published an alarming article about the incidence of car wrecks occurring due to driver blackouts. Drivers suffer loss of consciousness or syncope for a variety of reasons, including atrial fibrillation (“A Fib”) and other heart rhythm abnormalities, strokes and TIAs, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), anxiety attack, drug abuse and anemia.

If you are like most adults, you probably have specific routes that you travel to work and other obligations each day. You may take the same streets habitually, leading you to feel comfortable and safe driving in those areas. However, what you feel is a false sense of security based on your familiarity with those roads and not on the statistical danger you face.
