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.

Tanning salons can be seemingly useful in many circumstances, especially to those who don’t live in sunny states like Florida. If you live in New York and want to look a bit tanner for your wedding in November, you can disregard the chilly temperatures and head to the tanning salon. Unfortunately, the more you visit the tanning salon, the higher your risk of developing skin cancer. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you’re 59% more likely to develop melanoma if you use tanning beds than you’d be if you didn’t.
The FDA will mandate that future tanning beds contain …

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 …

The FDA has just recently released new warnings regarding the popular sleep aid Lunesta (Eszopiclone). In addition to issuing new warnings, the government agency has published new requirements that Lunesta must meet in terms of properly warning consumers of the possible dangers of taking Lunesta.
One of the primary reasons for these new developments is the recent discovery by the FDA and others that taking Lunesta can seriously affect the ability of the consumers to do things such as safely drive a car the day after taking the drug.
As personal injury attorneys, our lawyers at the Law Offices of …

The company that produces the odd-looking running shoes called “FiveFingers” has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit for roughly $3.75 million. The case dates back to just over two years ago, when the first in a series of lawsuits were filed against the company, alleging that consumers had been misled regarding the health benefits of the new type of running shoes.
The marketing campaigns for the so-called “barefoot-style” shoes claimed that wearing the shoes could strengthen feet and prevent running-related injuries better than other running shoes could. Although the aesthetic concept behind the shoes was surely innovative, there is …

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 …

Amusement parks are generally destinations filled with fun; places on which families descend in anticipation of a day of thrill and, well, amusement. Unfortunately, though, as many of our clients have learned the hard way, amusement parks can be dangerous places if proper precautions are not taken.
As South Florida personal injury attorneys, our lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg have represented numerous individuals who have gone to amusement parks only to leave with broken legs or broken arms, dislocated shoulders, broken ankles, etc. How can a place touted as a center of fun be, in …

A pharmacy (a store that, in its simplest form, dispenses medicine to promote health) banning the sale of cigarettes seems like a no-brainer. But CVS is far more than your average pharmacy – it serves customers looking to pick-up a wide range of products including greeting cards, essential groceries, basic clothing, electronics, school supplies, makeup, hygiene essentials, vitamins, cold medicine, and, yes, prescription drugs. CVS Pharmacy, the division of CVS Caremark Corporation with which almost every American is familiar, saw an annual revenue last year of far more than $100 billion. With more than 7,600 locations, it isn’t surprising that …
