Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
LegalView, the most comprehensive legal resource available on the Internet, updated its traumatic brain injury information (TBI) blog readers with essential new details on top-rated brain injury rehabilitation hospitals in the United States. The hospitals were ranked on a rigorous statistical mill, according to U.S. News, where the full list of hospitals by specialty were ranked. TBI can be a difficult and often life-changing experience, which is why finding the best assistance can prove beneficial to a TBI victim. Individuals who currently live with TBI should consider contacting a traumatic brain injury lawyer who can aid in the development of any potential traumatic brain injury lawsuit.
Also, the International Brain Injury Association recently estimated that the number of Americans living with TBI has likely risen to 5.3 million. TBI can be caused by an array of factors, but researchers believe that a victim's type and quality of care may determine the outcome of their condition, which is why the list's merit ranks highly among victims and their families and friends. According to the list, the top ten 2008 rehabilitation centers include: The Rehabilitation Center of Chicago, The University of Washington Medical Center, The Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation in New Jersey, Memorial Hermann-TIRR, The Mayo Clinic's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center, Craig Hospital in Denver, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, Rusk Institute of the NYU Medical Center, Shepherd Center, and Ohio State University Hospital. Individuals who may be suffering from a brain injury can learn more about earning monetary compensation to pay for the costly medical bills associated with their injury by locating a traumatic brain injury attorney.
LegalView also offers additional resources on several other legal topics including the latest information on the rising risk of truck accidents as well as the latest on pharmaceutical product and drug defects or recalls.
Truck accidents can affect millions of individuals and are considered the most costly and fatal vehicle wrecks that can occur. Unfortunately, truck accidents have been steadily increasing over the past 10 years and thousands are at risk for suffering from these unforeseen vehicle accidents, which could leave an individual physically or mentally impaired without the necessary resources to find assistance. Victims of a truck accident are encouraged to locate a truck accident attorney who can provide the necessary details to garner financial security from a truck accident lawsuit.
Additionally, LegalView provides resources on the most recent pharmaceutical controversies, such as the Avandia dangers, and medical device manufacturing defects, including the Zimmer Durom cup. Avandia is a prescription drug used to treat type 2 diabetes, a growing epidemic in the United States, according to researchers from the American Diabetes Association who have estimated that more than 23 million Americans are living with some type of diabetic condition. Avandia, however, has been associated with several serious risks. Among the Avandia side effects are the increased risk of heart disease and osteoporosis. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in mid-2007 cited the risk of severe heart disease among patients consuming Avandia. Since that time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added a more severe warning to the drug's label, but has not recalled the medication.
The Zimmer Durom cup, however, is on the brink of a potential recall after hundreds of doctors across the country began submitting complaints that the Zimmer Holdings' hip socket, used as an artificial component in hip replacement surgeries, was failing in many patients and likely leading to an additional hip replacement surgery. Individuals who are among the 12,000 patients to have received the faulty hip socket are advised to not only seek medical assistance immediately, but to contact an experienced medical device law firm to discuss the potential for a Zimmer Durom cup class action lawsuit.
