When residents of New Orleans think about products liability claims, they typically consider claims of defective toys, vehicles and drugs, among other tangible items. However, what many people don't consider within the realm of products liability is injuries or illnesses caused by dangerous food products. Although food poisoning is a fairly common occurrence that most people have experienced at least once in their life, such an incident may constitute a legal action on behalf of the victim depending on the circumstances.
There are likely many women in New Orleans, as there are across the country, that are looking for the perfect birth control to prevent pregnancy or for other medical reasons. Some may have heard of the birth control known as Mirena. Mirena is an inter-uterine form of birth control that its makers claim is over 99 percent effective, convenient, lightens periods and lasts for up to five years. However, once women hear about the litigation that is unfolding regarding this birth control device, they may want to consider whether the benefits really outweigh the costs.
