People have always wanted someone to tell them there’s another way to lose weight that doesn’t involve diet and exercise. So, in the 90s when Fen-Phen the miracle weight loss drug reached the market, people were eager to give it a try. Fen-Phen is the combination of fenfluramine and phentermine. Pharmaceutical companies made similar versions of Fen-Phen, like Redux. As more people tried these drugs, it became apparent that they might not be the miracle drug everyone had hoped for.
Dangerous drugs can severely harm a person physically and mentally. It’s not fair for a person to have these experiences when they’ve been told the drugs were safe. In situations like this, you have the right to seek legal action. Thomas Law Offices handles dangerous drugs cases in Kentucky and we might be able to help you.
Trump said that over 90% of the heroin in the country comes from Mexico. He plans to combat this problem with preventing drugs from crossing the border. He believes his wall will inhibit the influx of drugs and reduce the supply and outreach so fewer people can be affected. Other people aren’t so sure that the President’s wall will fix the opioid epidemic because a lot of opioids are prescribed by doctors in the country.
These prescription uses could be the event that gets people addicted. When the prescription is done, the people still crave the drug and try to find other ways to get opioids.
The President also stated that he believes we can be the generation to end this crisis. Trump focused on another factor of the opioid issue, saying that we need to be tougher on Americans who purchase and use these drugs. “There is nothing admirable, positive, or socially desirable about it,” Trump said.
On Tuesday, October 24th, the U. S. Senate voted to end a rule that prohibited banks from including language in their contracts that prohibited individuals from filing class action claims against banks.
A class-action lawsuit is when a group of people has suffered the same or similar injuries or financial damages from the same source, and they sue the party responsible as a group.
Because the Senate killed this rule, Americans seeking legal action against banks may be forced to settle things in private arbitration. This potentially reduces the options for a favorable settlement. In addition, this makes it easier for banks that use this language in contracts to get away with actions similar to the events that recently took place during the Wells Fargo debacle where the bank created millions of unauthorized accounts or the Equifax debacle where the corporation attempted to stop Americans from filing a class action after a major security breach.
While no members of the Democratic party voted for this, most of the Republicans did. Every Republican except John Kennedy and Lindsey Graham voted in favor of getting rid of the rule. After the vote was tied 50-50, Vice President Mike Pence gave the final vote to kill the rule.
We’ve all been distracted while driving. If we miss an offramp while enabling GPS or quickly text a friend when stuck in traffic, we’re distracted. When we’re chatting with a friend in the passenger seat and miss a turn or eat a burger on the way home from work and almost miss seeing a stop sign, we’re distracted.
Some acts of distraction are potentially more dangerous than others, but the bottom line is simple:

Thomas Law Office was exceptional in handing my daughters car accident. They went above and beyond working with all the medical bills to get them lowered and with the insurance company to get us the best possible settlement w/o having to file suit. They were quick to always answering emails and phone calls. They even helped with answering questions we had with other issues that didn't involve our current case. They were great to work with. I highly recommend them and their services.read more
