The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that on Saturday night, April 20, 2024, around 9 p.m., at least 15 tourists riding the popular back lot tram ride at Universal City Studios were injured when the motorized tram vehicle they were riding on hit something and then tipped, causing many of the tram’s riders to be thrown from the ride.

The exact details and causes of this California amusement park injury incident are currently under investigation by the CHP, including possible driver negligence, vehicle brake failure and other causes.  Meanwhile, reportedly at least 15 of the tram riders were taken to a local hospital emergency room, with unspecified injuries.  So far Universal seems to be taking the position that the injuries ranged only from minor to moderate, yet at least 15 riders were taken to the hospital.

Heavy Metals and Neurodevelopmental Disorders: What Research Says

If you are involved in a serious injury accident in California, or you have a relative that suffers a wrongful death due to someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury and wrongful death lawyer that you can really trust, not a lawyer from a billboard or radio or television commercial.  This is a common mistake made by  many people who may never have hired a lawyer before and do not know what exactly to look for.

If you are hiring a law firm for your very important personal injury or wrongful death case, see if you can talk to the lawyer who will be representing you and your family. If you cannot talk to the lawyer and only get to speak with a receptionist, or if the lawyer sends an “investigator” to your home or hospital to try to pressure you into signing with them, then you should not hire that law firm.

Make sure you read everything that a law firm sends you when you are considering hiring that law firm. Our firm has an easy and simple to understand one page Retainer Agreement. We try to make everything as easy as possible for our clients in their difficult time.  Some firms have five or ten page retainer agreements, which may not be a bad thing by itself, but it is a bad thing if they are using the multiple pages to sneak in terms that are not beneficial to the client. Many of the firms that advertise heavily do not care as much about having happy clients at the end of the case, so they will sneak things into their agreements to use against the clients. Oftentimes the clients won’t realize those terms are in their agreement until after they have settled.  Do not fall for this. Read the entire contract. If you have a question about anything in our contract, ask us, we will happily explain it to you.

Why Does Using Roundup Increase Your Cancer Risks?

The use of the weedkiller Roundup can increase your risks of developing cancers. When Roundup is used in the soil to kill weeds around a home garden, or weeds around crops in the farmer’s fields, the residuals of the dangerous chemicals in Roundup stay in the soil to leach into the water later on. A dangerous ingredient used in Roundup is glyphosate, which is a known carcinogen to humans and animals. If you are exposed to glyphosate in any quantity environmentally you can develop symptoms and side effects from coming into contact with this highly toxic chemical. As a winning Los Angeles Roundup law firm, we can help.

Leaching of Glyphosate into Soil Can Be Affected by the Weather and Ground Conditions

What Are the Cytotoxic Properties of Glyphosate in Roundup?

The chemical glyphosate (n-(phosphonomethyl) glycine) is used as a broad-spectrum type of weed killer. It is used globally to kill unwanted plants, by disrupting the shikimic acid pathway the amino acid of a plant, preventing the binding of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to the enzymes necessary for the plant to grow. In short, it kills plants dead! The problem with the use of glyphosate is that it goes into the ground and then can be found in our food, drinking water, and can affect humans through exposure to this hazardous chemical. For this reason, glyphosates are toxic and can cause cancers such as:

 Liver cancer

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?

If you have had a hernia mesh surgical procedure that went awry, then you know that you are not out of the woods just because you are out of the operating room. There is a high likelihood that even after your surgery is complete, that the hernia mesh did not “take” or properly become implanted where it was meant to go. You could be up for a second surgical procedure, to manage the damage of an improperly implanted hernia mesh.

Additionally, if your hernia mesh was one that was defective in some way, and may need to be removed if it caused more harm in your body than good from being implanted into your internal cavities. It can take some time and many days of healing, to determine if your hernia mesh procedure is going to be truly successful to fix your hernia without other issues involved in the healing process.
