Jury says defective hip implants caused harm to patients

Advancements in medical technology have improved the lives of thousands of people around the country, including many here in Colorado. However, some of the devices that are placed inside patients have defects that end up causing harm to patients. One such device manufactured and distributed by Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit has been the subject of numerous lawsuits. In fact, one federal court jury sitting in another state recently determined that defective hip implants caused injuries and substantial harm to the six patients who were the subject of a lawsuit.

Marijuana use could lead to fatal motor vehicle accidents

There is evidence that the legalization of recreational marijuana use here in Colorado has led to people believing it is legal to drive while under the influence of it. This could not be further from the truth. Driving after using marijuana could lead to fatal motor vehicle accidents just as easily as drinking and driving, texting and driving or driving drowsy.

Colorado motorcycle accidents often have deadly consequences

While motorcyclists have the same rights on the road as the operators of other vehicles, drivers often pay less attention to motorcyclists. Unfortunately, given the difference in size and protection between a motorcycle and a car, motorcycle accidents are far more likely to be serious or even fatal for the biker. A fatal motorcycle crash occurred recently in Colorado, with tragic results.

A car crash can lead to a traumatic brain injury

It doesn't matter how much caution you take when you're behind the wheel, you never know if another driver will make a mistake that causes an accident. This can be as simple as another person sending a text message when he or she should be paying attention to the traffic and road conditions.
