Injuries From Laser Hair Removal, Other Procedures Sparking Lawsuits Against Medical Spas

Injuries From Laser Hair Removal, Other Procedures Sparking Lawsuits Against Medical Spas

Patients of medical spas are increasingly filing lawsuits over injuries sustained as a result of procedures aimed at removing facial hair, wrinkles and acnes scars, according to a report in The New York Law Journal. According to one personal injury attorney interviewed by the Journal, medical spas are lightly regulated, and are being used by consumers more frequently – a formula that could lead to an explosion of litigation involving such facilities in the coming years.

According to The New York Law Journal, medical spas are facilities where small plastic surgery procedures are performed. They should not be confused with day spas, where clients can receive facials, massages and other treatments. According to the Law Journal article, most states require that the plastic surgery procedures being performed at medical spas be supervised by a doctor. Sadly, that doesn’t always happen, and injuries can result.

According to The New York Law Journal, laser hair removal procedures are triggering many medical spa lawsuits. In one case detailed by the Law Journal article, an Arizona woman was “severely burned and scarred” during such a procedure. In another Arizona lawsuit, a man claims he sustained scarring, “extreme pain” and burning from laser hair removal on his back and shoulders.

Plaintiffs in these cases can often win big judgments and settlements, the Law Journal said. For instance, earlier this year a North Carolina woman won a $500,000 judgment against a medical spa over a serious blood infection she allegedly developed from a procedure to reduce fat in her stomach.

An attorney who represents medical spas in product liability lawsuits told The New York Law Journal that such facilities are being “targeted” by the plaintiffs bar. The attorney said such facilities could protect themselves by making sure that risks of procedures are fully disclosed, and that they obtain and document patients’ informed consent.

In the meantime, some states are moving to tighten regulations for medical spas, the Law Journal said.

Tax Debts Solutions By Veteran Tax Attorney & CPA

Tax Debts Solutions By Veteran Tax Attorney & CPA

Pasadena, CA August 31, 2009 — There are a number of tax debts solutions available to taxpayers. These options provide relief from an IRS tax problem or Franchise Tax Board situation. If you are struggling with burdensome tax debt with no relief in sight, you should consider one or more of these strategies:

1. Communication. The taxpayer or a tax professional representing the taxpayer must be in good communication with IRS otherwise collection actions just get more aggressive including asset seizure, bank account liens and wage garnishments.

2. Amount Due. First and foremost the amount of the tax liability needs to be determined and agreed with the IRS and/or the Franchise Tax Board for California taxes. The IRS depends on the taxpayer for filing tax returns and paying the tax due. As a tax attorney and CPA I can tell you that the IRS does make mistakes so the tax bills you are getting are not necessarily correct. Also the original tax return could be incorrect.

3. Installment Agreement. This is a negotiated payment plan based on the amount of tax owing. Essentially a good faith payment plan over time will generally be accepted. If the tax debt to the IRS is greater than $25,000, then additional documentation will need to be provided to the IRS before they will agree to a payment plan. Once the plan is agreed to, the taxpayer will be required to keep all current tax return filings and payments up-to-date.

4. Offer In Compromise. (OIC) This a negotiated settlement whereby the tax debts are settled for less than the taxpayer owes. Normally this requires extenuating circumstances such a job loss, divorce or death of a family member. Once the settlement is agreed to with the IRS, the tax debt is paid off in a lump sum or short term payment program.

5. Bankruptcy Filing. Your tax debts can be discharged under a bankruptcy petition to the court. This option should be carefully considered as it has severe implications including ruining your credit rating.

6. Not Currently Collectible. This is a program whereby the IRS agrees to suspend collections at this time as the taxpayer is unable to pay even an installment plan. However, if the financial circumstances of the taxpayer change, the IRS can resume normal collection action.

7. Statute Of Limitations. Generally the IRS has 10 years to collect from the date of assessment. If collection is not made in that time, the tax debt could vanish.

Taxpayers looking for effective tax debts solutions should consider engaging an experienced tax debt attorney and/or CPA to solve the tax problem. John Spurgeon is both a CPA and tax attorney in Pasadena, California servicing clients in the San Gabriel Valley and the greater Los Angeles area. John Spurgeon & Associates have the proven knowledge and skill to effectively represent taxpayers when dealing with the IRS tax or the Franchise Tax Board.

William Garvey HPI Products Sentenced for Environmental Crimes

William Garvey of HPI Products Sentenced for Environmental Crimes
Company Dumped Pesticide Waste Water into Public Sewers

WASHINGTON—William Garvey, the president of HPI Products Inc., a pesticide company based in St. Joseph, Mo., was sentenced today in federal court in Kansas City, Mo., for violations of the Clean Water Act and hazardous waste storage laws related to the company’s pesticide production, the Justice Department announced.

Garvey was sentenced to serve six months in prison, six months of home confinement and was ordered to pay a $100,000 fine for having disposed of pesticide waste water down the sewers of the city of St. Joseph. Sentencing for the company was delayed by the court.

Garvey pleaded guilty on Jan. 27, 2009, to a felony violation of the Clean Water Act for disposing of the pesticide waste. The company pleaded guilty on the same day to the same violation of the Clean Water Act as well as a felony violation of the hazardous waste storage laws.

According to court documents, HPI Products maintained warehouses at various locations in St. Joseph where it stored wastes from its operations for years without notifying the proper regulatory agencies. Many of the stored wastes were considered hazardous based upon their ingredients or their characteristics. In addition, HPI employees under Garvey’s supervision disposed of waste waters from the production of pesticides down floor drains and into the city of St. Joseph’s sewers for several years without permit.

“Compliance with our regulatory requirements is essential if we are to protect the environment,” said John C. Cruden, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. “This company and its president obtained an economic advantage over its competitors by violating the law and placing the environment and the public safety at risk. That is unacceptable.”

“By routinely violating federal safeguards for nearly 20 years, this company threatened the environment and put at risk the health and safety of the community,” said Matt Whitworth, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri. “When doing ‘business as usual’ means breaking the law, we will prosecute the offenders and hold them accountable for their actions.”

In a related case, Hans Nielsen, vice president of HPI Products, pleaded guilty yesterday to two counts of violating federal pesticides law designed to provide proper regulatory oversight and prevent improper storage of pesticides.

HPI began production of pesticides in 1980 at 417 S. 4th Street in St. Joseph. From the beginning HPI would wash its waste waters from pesticide production down floor drains and into the city’s sewers. HPI expanded its operations to 424 S. 8th Street in 1986. It eventually relocated and consolidated its operations to 222 Sylvanie Street in 1990. Its practice of using the city’s sewer system for disposal continued at all locations until EPA and Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) inspections in 2007.

In addition the two former HPI facilities and three other locations in St. Joseph were used as warehouses to store pesticides and process waste it didn’t dump into sewers. The pesticides and wastes were left for years in unmaintained buildings without the proper notification to state and federal authorities.

When authorities did discover the warehouses many of the containers were found to have leaked or spilled onto the warehouse floors and ground underneath the warehouses. Samples taken at the storage facilities indicated many of the containers held hazardous wastes. The buildings have been cleaned up by HPI under an EPA order. Further investigation of pollution of the soil around the building is pending.

The investigation was conducted by the EPA Criminal Investigation Division and MDNR. The case is being prosecuted by the Justice Department’s Environmental Crimes Section with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri.

Author Gives Away Free Debt Elimination Book Revealing the Truth about Bankruptcy

Author Gives Away Free Debt Elimination Book Revealing the Truth about Bankruptcy, Debt Consolidation, Credit Counseling, and Debt Settlement

DebtFreeLeague.com makes news with a practical solution to help people stay afloat of the staggering wave of unemployment and bankruptcies. The debt management company offers a helpful debt elimination book free to the public. Written by debt management industry author, Victor N. Chevalier, the timely and informative material provides a no nonsense comparison of the pros and cons of bankruptcy, debt consolidation, credit counseling, and debt settlement, a.k.a. debt negotiation. The book’s motive is to assist people with personal or business debt to make an informed decision in selecting the most practical solution to their financial needs.

Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2009 — For a limited time, the Debt Free League website is offering a free copy of SETTLE Credit Card, Medical & Business Debt for PENNIES on the Dollar. The book by financial industry whistle-blower, Victor N. Chevalier reveals eye-opening schemes that banks and credit card companies deviously use to entrap Americans into a perpetual debt cycle. Albeit, the author unveils powerful debt relief secrets to help disentangle debtors from their cancerous credit card debt and other unsecured debts.

The book’s key focus is to dissuade debtors against the common pursuit of filing bankruptcy. As confirmed by the U.S. courts, by June 30, 2009, bankruptcy filings increased by 35% compared to the previous year. Business filings totaling 55,021 represented a 63% recession-driven spike.

Statistics indicate that most bankruptcy filers could have avoided bankruptcy if they had an additional $250 in monthly income. This can be as simple as getting a part-time job, or working a few extra work hours

Despite all the hype, Consumer Reports confirms a 79% credit counseling dropout rate due to its inferior results.

The risky debt consolidation procedure requires a borrower to pledge the equity on his home to guarantee the loan repayment. However, besides pushing borrowers into foreclosure because of a loan delinquency, statistics warn that 75% of the people who get home equity loans assume more debt than they previously had.

Our debt settlement program boasts the lowest fees in the industry, a 100% cancellation refund just in case you’re not completely satisfied, plus it allows you to re-enroll and be credited some of the fees you previously paid

However, the author suggests a detour from bankruptcy when far better debt relief solutions exist. “Statistics indicate that most bankruptcy filers could have avoided bankruptcy if they had an additional $250 in monthly income. This can be as simple as getting a part-time job, or working a few extra work hours,” Mr. Chevalier adds.

The high unemployment rate is a predominant bankruptcy culprit. But thankfully, the book gives sufferers of income loss a number of solutions to get back on their feet. Alas, bankruptcy risks can gain a fresh start without the need to declare bankruptcy.

A key technique in the book legally empowers people to stop creditor harassment. People can also learn how to settle unsecured personal and business debt with creditors, debt collectors, and attorneys for pennies on the dollar. Furthermore, all of the valuable information is totally free.

The anti-bankruptcy advocate also cautions people against the means test, a requirement of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act that makes it harder to qualify to discharge all or most debts via Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

The bankruptcy law also requires completion of a six month credit counseling course before a bankruptcy can be discharged. Motioning against this inconvenient requirement, Mr. Chevalier cautions, “Despite all the hype, Consumer Reports confirms a 79% credit counseling dropout rate due to its inferior results.”

Far worse, critics assail credit counseling reporting a 50% dropout rate at the halfway point. Indicators for the high dropout rate include mediocre basic interest rate reduction, unbearable monthly payments, and negative long-term credit implications.

A debt consolidation option he also warns against is trading off unsecured debt for secured debt through a home equity loan.

He admonishes, “The risky debt consolidation procedure requires a borrower to pledge the equity on his home to guarantee the loan repayment. However, besides pushing borrowers into foreclosure because of a loan delinquency, statistics warn that 75% of the people who get home equity loans assume more debt than they previously had.”

In contrast, Mr. Chevalier recommends debt settlement because it provides stronger, less intrusive debt relief.

In reference, he credits the National Debt Relief Stimulus Plan because of its incredible effectiveness in settling personal, medical, and business debt.

The bankruptcy alternative was pioneered by Debt Free League creates a mutual, satisfactory exchange between debtors and creditors. The debtor can become debt-free and in turn, the creditor can recover part of the money they could have lost if the debtor declared bankruptcy, if the creditor charged off the debt as a business loss, or if the creditor’s collection efforts seemed too time-consuming and costly.

The debt reduction benefits of the National Debt Relief Stimulus Plan are enormous. “Our debt settlement program boasts the lowest fees in the industry, a 100% cancellation refund just in case you’re not completely satisfied, plus it allows you to re-enroll and be credited some of the fees you previously paid”, emphasizes Caitlin Foley, a Debt Free League debt adviser.

While the procedure has some risks, its pros generally far outweigh the cons. Inquires about the National Debt Relief Stimulus Plan can be made by calling Debt Free League at 1-800-213-9968. The company’s website also provides an FAQ page that addresses the program’s most general questions and answers.

Divorce Mediation A Relatively Speedy and Low Cost Alternative

Divorce Mediation A Relatively Speedy and Low Cost Alternative

Is it possible to have an easy divorce? A low cost divorce? Or do all divorce settlements necessarily end in hard feelings and financial ruin? The truth is that divorce can be low-cost and easy… or it can be a long ordeal that can drag on for months. No matter how emotional things get, just remember that you always have a choice and that your willingness to negotiate through mediation can help speed up the whole process, thereby minimizing the pain inflicted on your family.

Mediation is a legal process in which a trained, impartial third-party will offer divorce help and support by assisting both parties to reach an agreement. A couple preparing to divorce should not rely solely on a mediator. Rather, the husband and wife should consult their respective attorneys about their specific procedures and legal consequences of the mediation process.

If mediation is not successful, then the case must go to trial. In most cases, it is best to avoid a trial as attorney’s fees, alone, can pile up if delaying tactics are used. Furthermore, studies show that people feel more satisfied with mediated Separation Agreements than with those that are ordered by the court. Finally, since the process is more civil and less emotionally grueling, mediation minimizes any trauma to the children.

Life after divorce can be a fresh new start. Mediation can not only save time and money, but can also reduce emotional and psychological baggage for everyone.

Auto Insurance Act Affects Wisconsin Personal Injury Law Firm Eisenberg Law

Auto Insurance Act Affects Wisconsin Personal Injury Law Firm Eisenberg Law

2009 Wisconsin Act 28 contains a number of provisions that expand options for personal injury settlements and change the state’s auto insurance restrictions and coverage minimums. This Act impacts Wisconsin personal injury law firm, Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C., which has won millions in personal injury settlements for its clients. Eisenberg’s personal injury attorneys speculate that this new Act will increase some settlement amounts significantly.

Madison, WI, September 02, 2009 — Signed into law on June 29, the Wisconsin state budget for 2009-2011 (2009 Wisconsin Act 28) contains a number of provisions that expand options for personal injury settlements and change the state’s auto insurance restrictions and coverage minimums. This Act impacts Wisconsin personal injury law firm, Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C., which has won millions in personal injury settlements for its clients. Eisenberg’s personal injury attorneys speculate that this new Act will increase some settlement amounts significantly. This new legislation also makes liability and underinsured motorist insurance mandatory for Wisconsin drivers.

Section 3171 of the Act allows injured policy holders to access the full benefit of their own insurance plan, prohibiting insurance companies from deducting the amount of insurance carried by the negligent driver in the accident. In addition, health insurance companies cannot deny coverage for medical care if medical expense coverage is included in one’s auto insurance. The result being that injured individuals may have access to a greater amount of financial coverage for medical costs due to injuries.

“These new laws are extremely important for people injured in car accidents as they can have a big impact on the settlement an injured person may be eligible to receive,” said Steve Eisenberg, Wisconsin personal injury attorney and one of the founders of Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C., of Madison, Wisconsin. “You need a lawyer that understands the new laws and how to maximize your recovery.”

The budget also mandates that insurance companies will no longer be able to deny coverage for hit-and-run accidents because physical contact did not occur. This gives injured drivers access to uninsured motorist coverage if they can provide independent, third party evidence of the accident.

New minimum coverage amounts have been set for auto liability insurance, requiring that policies must cover “$50,000 because of bodily injury to or death of one person in any one accident and $100,000 because of bodily injury or death of two or more persons in any one accident, and $15,000 because of injury to or destruction of property of others in any one accident.”

Other changes include the requirement of all liability policies to include underinsured motorist coverage if at least $100,000 per person and $300,000 per accident. Along with the new insurance mandate is the repeal of a 14-year-old law that banned insured drivers from stacking auto insurance policy limits for uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.

Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C. provides superior representation in Wisconsin personal injury, criminal defense, family and divorce, drunk driving, and civil litigation cases. They have over 25 years of experience representing injured victims of auto, truck and other vehicle collisions and have won millions for their clients in Wisconsin personal injury cases.

Texas Attorney Files 29 Lawsuits against Medtronic, Inc. for Recalled Defibrillator Leads

Texas Attorney Files 29 Lawsuits against Medtronic, Inc. for Recalled Defibrillator Leads

FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 11 — Fort Worth personal injury attorney John David Hart has filed 29 lawsuits against Medtronic, Inc., Medtronic International Technology, Inc. f/k/a Medtronic Puerto Rico, Inc., Medtronic USA, Inc. and Medtronic Puerto Rico Operations Co., in connection with heart defibrillator leads recalled due to the risk of lead fractures which could result in serious injury or death.

Minneapolis, Minnesota-based pharmaceutical company Medtronic, Inc. recalled its Sprint Fidelis

Defibrillator Leads, models 6930, 6931, 6948 and 6949 on October 15, 2007. According to the FDA the leads were recalled because of the potential for fracture which can result in the defibrillator delivering unnecessary shocks or not delivering life-saving shocks to the patient.

Filing deadlines are approaching as the statute of limitations may expire on October 15, 2009 in many states. Hart has filed suit on behalf of clients from seven states, including Texas, Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

“Many patients with these devices may not be aware of these deadlines,” said attorney John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart. “This device is dangerous and we plan on protecting our clients’ rights in court.”

Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators (ICDs) and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillators (CRT-Ds) monitor heart rhythms and deliver a shock to restore normal rhythm when life-threatening, irregular heartbeats are detected. The defibrillators are surgically implanted and are connected directly to the patient’s heart by thin wires called leads.

“It is our hope that everyone who has been injured by this device is aware of the deadlines that are in place and that they take appropriate action to protect their legal rights,” Mr. Hart says.

The Law Offices of John David Hart is a group of experienced and dedicated legal professionals working to protect the rights of people injured by the acts of others. Across the country, the firm represents people in cases of dangerous drugs and devices, catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, trucking accidents and other matters.
