Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 7, 2008
LegalView, the number one site for anything and everything legal on the Internet, informed readers of a new truck accident information portal that will offer victims of a truck crash with updated news and statistics on truck accidents as well as links to locating truck accident attorneys and truck accident lawyers, who may be able to offer truck accident victims assistance and protection as well as the chance for monetary compensation.
According to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI), a research institute that works to gather and provide nationwide statistics on car, truck and bus accidents throughout, the number of fatal truck accidents has risen 5.8 percent over the last ten years and continues to grow. Additionally, UMTRI studies have determined that sources of harm for heavy truck accidents include aggressiveness of trucks, the greater mass and frame stiffness of a truck, geometric mismatch of trucks and other vehicles on the road, rollover thresholds and greater stopping distance required. Individuals who have been in a truck accident should speak with an experienced truck accident lawyer or for additional information on developing a truck accident lawsuit that may provide monetary compensation and relief from the bills associated with the severity of a truck accident injury.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) also reported that in 2007 there were 136,468 non-fatal large truck accidents, 54,961 injury-related large truck accidents and 80,752 injuries occurred involving large truck accidents. To learn more about what to do if an individual has been involved in a truck accident, it is advisable to locate a truck accident law firm that will be able to provide the services of a truck accident attorney, legal consultation on the development of potential truck accident litigation.
LegalView hosts a variety of information portals in order to provide victims of legal issues with easy-to-access information as well as updated news articles, the most recent jury verdicts and in some instances, forums or blogs for victims of legal issues to share their stories. LegalView's most recently updated information portals include the revamped Avandia site, the Levaquin information portal and the Digitek digoxin practice area.
The Avandia portal was re-launched to offer the most recent news on the type 2-diabetes drug that has been prescribed to millions of Americans. Studies have linked the use of the drug to severe side effects including an increased risk of heart failure and early on-set osteoporosis that can also cause a higher chance of Avandia osteoporosis.
The anti-bacterial prescription medication known as Levaquin has been prescribed for an array of infection types ranging from bronchitis and pneumonia to Chlamydia and skin infections. However, researchers are finding that one of the more serious Levaquin side effects cause patients to suffer from Achilles tendon rupture. The risk of the tendonitis occurring in patients is allegedly so severe that in can occur in patients who previously took the drug more than two years prior.
Digitek digoxin is prescribed to individuals with congestive heart failure or irregularity with heart beat rhythms. However, in April 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that a Digitek recall would occur because of a manufacturing error that caused the medication to be released with double the recommended dose, increasing a patient's risk of toxicity and overdose.
