Personal Injury Lawyers
Some say that Indiana personal injury lawyers advocate for people
from Evansville to South Bend and from Terre Haute to Richmond
and Indianapolis plus other outlying areas as well. In order for
Indiana personal injury lawyers to be effective in their trade
they need to be up-to-date on the current happenings in the state
such as the current recalls that are going on.
The State Bar Association of Indiana, was born on June 23, 1896,
in the hall of the Indiana House of Representatives with more
than 100 lawyers present. Most of the credit for "midwifing"
this event accrues to the 1896 leadership of the Marion County
Bar Association, notably Samuel O. Pickens and John R. Wilson.
Pickens, county bar chairman, issued notice of the meeting and
its purpose: to organize a state bar association.
Wilson prepared and presented a draft of Articles of Association,
and assumed the important office of secretary of the fledgling
organization until he became its second president in 1898-99.
(In nominating Wilson to succeed Benjamin Harrison, the organization's
first president, Pickens stated: "John Wilson did probably
more than any member of the bar to bring about the organization
of the State Bar Association.")
The assembled lawyers disposed of the business at hand with little
debate. Articles of Association, which included details of membership
eligibility, governance, dues, committees and their functions,
and meetings, were discussed, adopted and signed by the organization's
charter members. Harrison was elected president. (Three years
earlier he had concluded his service as the nation's 23rd president
and returned to his Indiana law practice.)
Personal Injury Lawyers
When a company distributes a product, they are holding themselves
responsible for ensuring the safety of that product. If the product
that they are distributing is in any way defective and an individual
becomes sick or injured from consuming that project, the injured
individual would be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to
recover any damages that they incurred as a direct result of the
sickness or injury. Those damages include medical bills, loss
of enjoyment of life, and punitive damages. People may start to
hire more Indiana personal injury lawyers due to a recent recall.
Weber Foods Inc., located in Indiana, has voluntarily recalled
over one hundred pounds of fresh pizza that may be contaminated
with listeria monocytogenes. The product being recalled is the
seven-ounce packages of "Weber Foods Deluxe French Bread
Pizza." Every box of the product bears the label with the
packaging code of "12099" and the establishment code
"Est. 6919." The product was made on April 9 and was
shipped to retail stores in Indiana and Kentucky.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service discovered the problem
while taking standard microbiological sampling of the product.
Listeria monocytogenes is the cause of listeriosis, which is a
disease that can be potentially fatal. Consumers are warned not
to consume this product if they have purchased it.
There has been no need for Indiana personal injury lawyers to
be included in this so far as there have been no personal injury
lawsuits filed in association with this product as of yet due
to the fact that there have been no reports of an individual becoming
ill as a result of consuming this product. For a lawsuit to be
viable, a person must consume the defective product before the
recall is in place and become ill because of it. Simply purchasing
a defective product is not enough grounds to file a personal injury
