We’ve all seen the ads for Hydroxycut; you know, the ones in which an overweight individual is depicted before a skinnier version of that same person appears, the implication being that Hydroxycut made all the difference. According to the ads, it might seem like all you have to do to lose weight is take the dietary supplement, which comes in various forms including powder to mix with water and chewable gummies.

Birth control pills are supposed to prevent unplanned pregnancies and bring stability to the female body; unfortunately, some forms of birth control can yield a far graver consequence: death.
Erika Langhart was 24 years old when she died in 2011 of a pulmonary embolism, an often-fatal complication during which arteries in the lungs become blocked. Langhart’s family contends that the untimely death – which occurred just before Erika was set to begin law school at Georgetown University – was no random accident, but rather the result of the widely-used birth control device NuvaRing, manufactured by pharmaceutical behemoth Merck.
When Erika’s …

According to the conclusions of three separate studies, as reported by Forbes, roughly 12 million Americans are misdiagnosed every year, a consequence of the fact that doctors often times fail to follow-up on so-called “red flags” for grave illnesses such as cancer.
Statistics within the report indicate that those 12 million Americans who go misdiagnosed account for roughly 1 in 20, or 5%, of all patients seen in the United States, a significant portion of medical attention-seeking individuals who place in the hands of doctors their health and wellbeing. What is the result of a misdiagnosis? If you think …

Senior citizens are among the most vulnerable members of our society; when they move into a nursing home, they and their families expect them to be treated with the utmost care and respect. When these largely helpless individuals are mistreated, they and their families have the right to take legal action against the person or people responsible.
At the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, our personal injury attorneys often represent elderly individuals and their families, when said seniors have been the victims of what is known as nursing home neglect. Below, we’ve outlined responses to some questions that are …

There is arguably no field of law so burdened by misconceptions and untruths as personal injury law, practiced by attorneys – such as our lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg – who represent individuals who have sustained injuries due to the recklessness and/or negligence of others. Therefore, today, we’d like to take the time to address just a few of the more frequent and false remarks leveled at our field of law; these flawed notions often times fuel lies regarding the specifics of personal injury cases and thereby undermine the likelihood of victims being able to obtain …

As experienced South Florida personal injury attorneys, we know that when an individual is harmed due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, they have a right to take that individual to court in pursuit of compensation for the damages sustained as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing. A caveat to this rule lies within subsection s. 768.13 of the Florida State Statutes, otherwise known as Florida’s “Good Samaritan Act.”
No, this isn’t the type of Good Samaritan Law that was a part of the series finale of Seinfeld—you know, when Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine were …

The pharmacy whose evident negligence played a major role in causing a meningitis outbreak last year has preliminarily agreed to setting up a $100 million fund for the victims of the meningitis outbreak.
The negligent company, the New England Compounding Center, dispersed steroid injections throughout the United States last year and it was eventually determined that the widespread meningitis outbreak was linked to the steroid injections that came from the New England Compounding Center, a Massachusetts-based company.
The meningitis outbreak did not simply cause a need for individuals to see a doctor; according to a report by the CDC…

The family of a young and now brain dead California girl is reeling following two weeks of unfathomable hardship and distress. A relatively low-risk, common surgery, the tonsillectomy, was performed on 13-year-old Jahi McMath; the procedure was recommended by two doctors, both of whom contended that removing the tonsils would resolve issues such as sleep apnea, weight gain and inability to concentrate, which had been plaguing McMath.
Instead of yielding the anticipated positive results, the evidently botched operation has left McMath brain dead; the hospital in which she is being treated has declared her legally dead and has moved …
