By |August 27th, 2014|Defective Products|

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said earlier this month that Hyundai Motor Company agreed to pay a $17.35 million fine for delaying the recall of 43,500 vehicles.

Your New Tires Might Not Actually Be New At All

By |May 6th, 2014|Blog|

May 6, 2014

Yesterday, San Diego’s 10 News released an investigative reporting that indicated new tires being sold in San Diego, and nationwide, may not be new at all.

Sen. Boxer Publicly Endorses California Micra Reform

April 11, 2014

Summary: Proponents of California’s MICRA reform have just received significant support with Sen. Barbara Boxer’s public endorsement for MICRA improvement yesterday.  Perhaps with her support, Sacramento can do the right thing by enacting the Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act – an act that would give victims of medical malpractice enough compensation to fully heal from their physical and mental injuries.

The medical community’s smear campaign against the trial lawyers that support Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) reform has just become more difficult.  Yesterday, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) publically endorsed [...]
