In the courts:

We continue to be very busy, even as most courts remain on a limited calendar due to the pandemic. We continue to be on the forefront of both the national Zantac/ranitidine Litigation (the federal MDL continues to progress), as well as the national Paraquat Litigation which was recently centralized in Illinois. (Paraquat is an herbicide that has been allegedly linked to Parkinson’s Disease.)

Article: Gaps in Treatment

After being injured in an accident, your doctor may want you to go for additional testing, come back for follow-ups and even see other doctors. You may be tempted to cancel your doctor’s appointment or skip your treatment sessions because you are starting to feel better. Or, you may have trouble making appointments because of work or family commitments. Missing appointments can quickly lead to “gaps” in treatment. 

To learn why these gaps can be very detrimental to your case, click here.
