X-ray of a feet-on-dash car crash victim

Feet on Dashboard Accidents

Here is an excellent reminder why it is ALWAYS a terrible idea to ride in a car, or allow anyone to ride in a car with you, with feet on the dash.

Feet on dashboard accident injuries are ALWAYS horrific, ALWAYS life-changing, and ALWAYS end badly…even when everyone else in the accident walks away unscathed.

An X-Ray shared by police in Wales in the U.K. tells the devastating story of what can happen to passengers who ride with their feet up on the dashboard in the event of a crash.

The graphic image shows a broken femur and hip and a drastically dislocated other hip, likely caused by airbags going off during a collision, driving the passenger’s own legs back at her at speeds up to 350 km/h.

Authorities call the injuries “life-changing.”

$8 Billion Risperdal Judgment Reduced to $6.8 Million

The judge presiding over a case which saw Johnson & Johnson hit with an $8bn jury verdict has reduced the amount the company has to pay in damages to $6.8m.

Last October, J&J was ordered to pay $8bn in damages to a US man who claims he was not warned that taking the company’s antipsychotic Risperdal could lead to breast growth.

A jury in Philadelphia agreed with the allegation that J&J’s Janssen unit had downplayed the risk that use of Risperdal (risperidone) in male children can cause enlarged breasts, a condition known as gynaecomastia.

Lawsuits against 3M moved to federal court

Lawsuits filed by nearly 40 U.S. veterans who sued 3M Co. for defective earplugs and hearing loss have been moved to federal court.

The cases were moved from Hennepin County District Court to the federal court in Minnesota at the request of 3M, court records show. 3M has denied wrongdoing in the cases.

The complaints are the latest of at least 635 veteran lawsuits making similar allegations against 3M and Aearo Technologies, which 3M bought in 2008.

The lawsuits — the first of which a military veteran filed in December 2018 — represent more than 1,700 individuals, according to documents 3M filed with U.S. regulators in April.

More lawsuits are expected, plaintiff attorneys said.
