Enforcement Change Leads to Surge in Drug Recalls

2010-08-28
Drug recalls soared by 300 percent to a record number of 1742 in 2009. One drug company--now defunct--accounted for over 1000 of those recalls, but the increase is still 50% over 2008. Although the marked increase has led some to speculate about a decline in product safety, according to pharmaceutical injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm, the difference is more likely an attitude shift toward increased enforcement than a sudden change in product safety. Industry analysts cite a number of factors that led to the increase, including: - Drug repackaging - Rush to produce ...

Newer Employees Means More On-The-Job Injuries

2010-08-28
With the economy showing some signs of recovering, many companies have ended hiring freezes. While positive for the jobless, the influx of new workers into the corporate world often means an increase in on-the-job injuries - and increased workers' compensation costs for employers.

However, Arizona's attempts at passing their own law have hit a roadblock after a federal district court judge issued an injunction against the state's measures. Arizona's Immigration ...
