Published on Mar 13, 2018 at 3:03 pm in Title IX.

In the ongoing legal cases against Larry Nassar, former sports physician for the U.S. gymnastics team who was served with more than 150 lawsuits for sexual crimes he committed, another gymnast has come forward with a lawsuit. Gold medal Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman filed a lawsuit in California state court earlier this month alleging USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee failed to protect her and other athletes from Nassar’s misconduct.

The lawsuit claims that the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics looked the other way when Nassar sexually harassed and abused Raisman on dozens of occasions under the guise of medical treatment. Raisman says that the organizations shielded Nassar from the investigations and allegations that surrounded Nassar’s history and did not take the proper actions to keep the gymnasts safe.

We expect our medicine to be safe and to help with the reasons why we’re taking it. Drugs are supposed to go through many steps before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves it to be on the market. But sometimes drugs can have something wrong with them or there is an issue with its packaging. These instances often turn into product liability cases. If the drug’s instructions have an error or depicts using the drug in an improper fashion, people could get hurt. Sometimes, all possible side effects aren’t printed on the box so people don’t know the risks.

Unfortunately, people can get hurt from this. Once there’s evidence that there’s an issue with a drug, it can be recalled and taken off the market, but people were still injured. If you’ve taken a drug that was later recalled, you may be eligible for compensation. A Kentucky dangerous drug lawyer from Thomas Law Offices can help you recover damages for your pain and suffering.
