Labor & Employment Law
Since the dawn of the Industrial Age, citizens and legislators have been working tirelessly to create better working conditions for both business owners and their employees. This hard work is crafted into what is generally known as Employment Law. While many people are familiar with employee rights, Employment Law applies to both sides of the equation—protecting employee rights as well as supporting business owners to ensure their business is in a good position.
In a Personal Injury case, damages in the form of money are awarded to the person who has been injured (the plaintiff). And, the person who is found to be legally responsible for the injury pays this money (the defendant). The damages are awarded to the plaintiff in order to compensate for what has been lost. This can include recovering the cost of medical bills, loss of property at fair market value, and even lost wages.

Zantac and Ranitidine has been recalled by the FDA due to its propensity as a human carcinogen and likelihood to cause cancer.
