Michigan No-Fault Reform Act Puts a Harness on Independent Medical Examiners On June 11, 2019, Michigan Governor Whitmer signed House Bill 4397. This new bill (which I will refer to as the No-Fault Reform Act) provided many significant changes to Michigan Auto No-Fault law. Among the most substantial changes were the regulations imposed on insurance company-hired Independent Medical Examiners (IME). These changes are intended to provide initial safeguards in an attempt to prevent potential abuse by the insurance companies. Specifically, the No-Fault Reform Act provides the following changes to IME: (1) the IME doctors must be licensed in Michigan; (2) If a specialist is providing medical care to a patient who needs to be examined by an IME, then the IME must also be licensed in the same medical specialty as the specialist providing the care; and if the physician providing the care is board certified in their specialty, then the examining IME physician must also be board certified in .....

Pittsburgh Corning Asbestos Trust & Exposure Company History The Pittsburgh Corning Asbestos Trust was established to help victims of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma obtain compensation. Pittsburgh Corning was founded in 1937 following a merger of two established glass making companies, Corning Glass Works and Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company. Up until 1947, the newly established Pittsburgh Corning specialized in the production of glass blocks which were sold for installation in residential, industrial and commercial structures. In 1947 Pittsburgh Corning shifted focus to the production of FOAMGLAS; a type of insulation primarily used in construction. Unlike the majority of its counterparts at the time, FOAMGLAS did not contain asbestos. In 1962 Pittsburgh Corning entered into a new purchase agreement with a company named UNARCO Industries. The agreement gave access to a new line of insulation products which contained Amosite asbestos, a form of asbestos imported from South Africa......

Mesothelioma Compensation and Financial Assistance After filing a mesothelioma claim, compensation may be awarded after the court trial. Mesothelioma compensation can be distributed in several different ways including trust funds. Amount of compensation The amount of compensation that can be awarded to a person differs with each specific case. With each case, the differing details of the severity of asbestos exposure, location of exposure, and amount of time exposed to the asbestos will all play a role in the settlement award. On average, a mesothelioma case settlement compensation is between 1 million and 1.4 million dollars. As it can be difficult to estimate the amount of money that will be awarded, it is important to speak with a lawyer who can help guide you through the process as well as identify the amount of money that may be awarded for your specific case. How to receive compensation In order to begin the process towards mesothelioma compensation, one must first find a la.....

Company Regulations of Talcum Powder in Cosmetic Products It can be easy to overlook the ingredients of everyday coveted cosmetic products, despite the importance each one may have with skin and health. This could be in part of general knowledge that its presence in-store assures for safe ingredients approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Although this may be true, there still is no absolute guarantee that every product put on the shelf is completely unharmful. Talcum powder, or talc for short, is a mineral that absorbs moisture and acts as a softening, anti-caking agent. It has been used in a variety of cosmetic products – including blush, eye shadow, face powder, foundation lipstick, mascara, and even children’s makeup. Under poor regulation conditions, products that contain cosmetic-grade talcum powder can become contaminated with asbestos. Asbestos is a natural mineral that is the only known cause of the mesothelioma – a rare and deadly disease. A mesothelioma pr.....

The “Breath Biopsy” Tested to Detect Malignant Mesothelioma by UK Scientists Identifying malignant mesothelioma prior to diagnosis can be difficult – especially due to the amount of time it takes the diseases’ symptoms to become apparent. To better aid with detecting the asbestos-related disease, a UK-based medical manufacturer has announced the start of clinical trials for their new disease breathalyzer – the Owlstone’s Breath Biopsy®. In both Canada and the United States, the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers (IAHFIAW), whose members are knowingly at risk for the malignant mesothelioma, has partnered with the Cambridge based Owlstone Medical for such trials. President of the Insulators Union, James McCourt, stated, “The population of those who have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk of having an existing early-stage disease or developing malignant mesothelioma later in their lives includes a substantial portion of our membership. The lon.....

Johnson & Johnson’s Claim A Woman’s Mesothelioma Diagnosis Was Spontaneous A carcinogenic mineral was found in many industrial work environments. A significant amount of the mineral was found near some deposits of talc as well. Malignant mesothelioma is known to be caused by exposure to asbestos. The talc-based products used in Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder caused the company many issues. The attorneys of Patricia Schmitz accused the company of selling the talc-based products contaminated with asbestos. The company’s attorneys claimed that Patricia’s mesothelioma cancer was caused by other factors. If the diagnosis was spontaneous, it contradicts where the disease originated. California Woman Accuses Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder Of Causing Her Fatal Disease Over the course of a seven-week trial, Patricia Schmitz provided evidence to support her case. The company was aware their products contained an exceeding amount of asbestos. The 61-year-old woman used their products for alm.....

Asbestos, a string-like fiber, is a substance that is mined and utilized for many purposes. According to 2017 CDC data, it has been linked to mesothelioma – a rare disease which causes about 3,000 deaths annually. Although the widespread use of asbestos within building products (including insulations), was discontinued years ago, the use of asbestos, though limited, is still present in various industrial settings. Such settings include chemical filtrations and various vehicle brakes. If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 mesothelioma, we may be able to help you. A proper mesothelioma diagnosis is critical to understand your prognosis. Due to many of asbestos’ harmful side effects, a tough blockage relating to the importation and manufacturing of asbestos has been set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency in April of 2019. Prior to the ban, the EPA had set a decade-old partial ban. Unfortunately, within this partial ban were loopholes which could have st.....

The nose possesses extremely delicate anatomy which is responsible for its shape, proportions, and position. To reconstruct this anatomy accurately, in some cases it may be necessary to resort to cartilage grafts obtained from the ribs. In this article, we will see why the rib is chosen as a source of grafts, what advantages it has, how it is used and what complications may arise. Why are rib grafts used in some secondary rhinoplasty cases? The use of grafts is usually necessary for patients with a history of unsatisfactory rhinoplasties or previous trauma. This is because revision patients typically need to add volume to their nose in order to supplement or replace the anatomical structures that have been damaged. The problem is that in order to do this, a large amount of cartilage is necessary. Under normal conditions, the nasal septum and ears offer sufficient quantity and quality of cartilage to meet the needs of a typical secondary rhinoplasty. Both structures offer between 2 an.....
