Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Michigan Create United States Steroid Injection Fungal Meningitis Outbreak Infographic


Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) October 23, 2012

The Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. medical malpractice lawyers in Michigan recently created an infographic on the recent United States meningitis outbreak linked to steroid injections. The infographic was created to aid those victims who are currently suffering from meningitis due to the injection, as well as make others who have also received the injection aware of the symptoms of this disease, and how it spreads throughout the body. Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is a Southfield law firm that is actively investigating the legal rights of patients who have been injured or died due to the meningitis outbreak due to steroid injection.

The United States Steroid Injection Fungal Meningitis Outbreak infographic visually displays the most recent statistics of injury cases and deaths reported due to fungal meningitis linked to steroid injection throughout the U.S. (both an U.S. map and chart are used), a description of the disease, the signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis, as well as where the needle is injected into a patient who receives the medication. The statistics reported on the infographic are recent counts reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Fungal meningitis can develop after a fungus spreads through the bloodstream from somewhere else in the body, as a result of the fungus being introduced directly into the central nervous system, or from an infected body site infection next to the central nervous system.

According to NBC News, all infected patients received injection with preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate prepared by New England Compounding Center (NECC), located in Framingham, MA. The injections were shipped to 23 states and nearly 14,000 patients have been given this potentially tainted injection of pain medication.

The CDC reports 257 cases of patients who suffer from the fungal infection linked to steroid injections has been reported thus far. 20 reports of death to a patient from fungal meningitis due to steroid injection in the U.S. have also been reported.

Tennessee has the highest amount of cases reported with 63, following the State of Michigan with 49 cases, and Virginia with 37 cases. Tennessee also has the highest numbers of deaths reported (8 deaths), with the State of Michigan to follow in the same sequence (4 deaths).

Michigan Car Accident Lawyer Gets Largest Overall Settlement, Largest Auto Negligence Verdict in State

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) January 21, 2009

The auto accident lawyers of Southfield-based Michigan Auto Law are proud to announce that partner Steven M. Gursten has gotten the largest settlement and the largest auto negligence verdict in the entire state of Michigan for 2008, according to a year-end verdicts and settlements report by Michigan Lawyers Weekly.

In addition to achieving some of the highest car and truck accident settlements each year for injury victims in Michigan, Steve Gursten has received the largest jury verdict in four of the past seven years. He also has received the largest pain and suffering settlement in Michigan in more than a decade.

Lawyers Weekly stated about Gursten's successful record, "considering the fact that there are approximately 4,000 Michigan attorneys who say they handle personal injury cases as part of their practice, the odds of accomplishing this feat are astronomical."

Additionally, law firm partner David Christensen garnered the ninth biggest settlement in Michigan last year. Here are our personal injury lawyers' top 2008 verdicts and settlements:

No. 1 Michigan settlement: $ 3.9 million (Case 07-719459-NI)

Estate of Patrick G. Nunez v. Utica Transit Mix and Supply, Co. Inc. and Charles L. Dreyer

Plaintiff Patrick Nunez was traveling in the fast lane on I-75 in Detroit, Michigan when a trucker driving a fully-loaded, 150,000 pound gravel truck lost control and collided with Nunez' car. The car was smashed against the highway retainer wall, where it burst into flames, killing Nunez.

The truck lost control when its front-steer tire blew. But trucks are not supposed to dangerously lose control when they experience a tire blow-out, which is a foreseeable and common event. The defendant lost control because his truck was in defective and dangerous out-of-service mechanical condition. The driver admitted in a deposition that he had received no formal training or supervision from his employer. He also said he failed to inspect the truck's tires and brakes. Furthermore, he had a seizure disorder and was on powerful epilepsy medication that causes drowsiness and delayed reaction time.

Because of the Michigan truck driver's negligence, the case settled for $ 3.9 million.

No. 9 Michigan settlement: $ 1.6 million

Donald Weller, et al., v. J.T. Express, et al. (Case 06-620 NI)

The plaintiff truck driver Donald Weller was rear-ended by another semi-trailer truck at an intersection in Romeo, Michigan. He was treated for neck and back complaints in the emergency room and had physical therapy.

Seven weeks later, the plaintiff noticed weakness and numbness in his left arm and leg. A discectomy with fusion was performed after a disc was found to be compressing the spinal cord. His left-sided weaknesses never diminished, and symptoms were stroke-like. The man had suffered a stroke nearly six years before the accident, but he recovered completely.

Through case facilitation, a $ 1.6 million settlement was reached.

No. 2 Michigan verdict: $ 5.65 million (Case 07-937-NI)

Broeren, et al., v. Bates

Plaintiff Anthony Broeren was seriously injured after a friend accidentally ran him over with a Dodge Ram pickup truck and propelled him head-first into a log cabin. Doctors say Broeren -- who suffered crushing injuries to his leg that have required many surgeries and a traumatic brain injury for starters -- will never be able to return to competitive employment. He also suffers tinnitus, vertigo, side effects from various pain pills and weight gain. Prior to the accident, he was an engineer.

Broeren sued Roy Bates II of Chesterfield Township, Michigan. Chrysler owned the Dodge Ram pickup truck, and Bates was employed with Chrysler when he accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake and struck Broeren during a group hunting trip in Evart, Michigan. Although the verdict was issued against Bates because Chrysler had been removed as a named defendant in the case, Chrysler remains financially responsible for the award.

The jury deliberated for three hours before deciding to allot $ 5.65 million, broken down into $ 2.75 million for pain and suffering, $ 1.88 million for economic damages and $ 1.02 million for loss of consortium.

The personal injury lawyers of Michigan Auto Law have been successfully protecting auto accident victims for more than 50 years. Our law firm is the largest in Michigan that practices exclusively in car and truck accidents. Our greatest satisfaction is obtaining justice to our clients who have been seriously injured or killed in auto accidents, and have been wronged by insurance companies. We realize that lawyers must bring lawsuits to obtain justice for these people, because it's only the threat of litigation that will force some insurance companies, large trucking companies and corporations to do the right thing.

The firm has received the top reported Michigan jury verdict in five of the past eight years. It is headquartered in Southfield at 26555 Evergreen Road, Suite 1530, (800)777-0028.

Not Everyone Struggling for Business in Michigan

Not Everyone Struggling for Business in Michigan












Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) January 14, 2009

Coming off its 5th year in a row of 30% plus annual growth, Online Technologies Corporation is enthusiastic about its data center business prospects in 2009.

Online Tech made significant investments in its managed data center business in 2008, making it one of the largest independent managed data center operators in the state of Michigan. To match it's growth rate, the company added 10,000 square feet of data center space with its third data center brought on line in early 2008. Online Tech also added 10 employees to its payroll in 2008 to better support its rapidly growing customer base.

A November report by Tier1 Research found that the global multi-tenant data center market continues to grow. Demand increased 14% last year while data center supply was up only 6%. This demand/supply gap is projected to grow over the next 3 years. Despite a difficult economy, the Internet will continue to grow as a vehicle for service and application delivery, driving the demand for expanded data center space. Software as a service, managed hosting, social networking and streaming media will increase the demands for data center space and power.

The credit crunch, coupled with small and mid-size businesses' reluctance to invest significant capital and operating expenses in private data centers, is also driving the demand for outsourced data centers and colocation. Rather than investing in the capital to build or expand an in-house data center to meet their IT needs, many companies are sharing data center space by co-locating with others in multi-tenant managed data centers.

Online Tech has seen these same trends in the State of Michigan. As companies need to cut back on IT capital intensive projects and reduce operating costs in their data centers, colocation in multi-tenant data centers can provide a solution that requires no capital investment, i.e. "Cap-Ex Free" IT, and can often reduce operating expenses by leveraging outsourced data center specialists.

In one of the states hit the hardest by the economic downturn, Online Tech is finding increased demand for it's managed data center solutions. "In both periods of growth and periods of decline, there are business opportunities" said Yan Ness, CEO of Online Tech. "It's when everything is flat, that I go sailing. Right now, all we see is opportunity."

With the recent downturn in the economy, managed data center operators like Online Tech have found an unexpected wind toward their back, which they expect will make the sailing even better in 2009.

About Online Technologies Corporation

Online Tech (http://www.onlinetech.com) is Michigan's premier Managed Data Center Operator. Online Tech helps companies manage their growing demand for data and computing capacity through it's highly secure and reliable multi-tenant data centers. With a full range of colocation,dedicated server and managed service options, industry leaders trust Online Tech to ensure their servers are always on, always online, and always safe.

Online Tech First Again for SAS70 at All Three Michigan Data Centers

Online Tech First Again for SAS70 at All Three Michigan Data Centers











SAS 70 Audited


Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) October 20, 2009

Online Tech, Michigan's Leading Data Center Operator, announced today that it has successfully completed its SAS 70 (Statement on Auditing Standards number 70) Type II audit for all three of its Michigan Data Centers. Six months after successfully completing the SAS 70 Type I audit on all of its data centers, Online Tech raised the bar again by completing the Type II audit through UHY, LLP. Online Tech is unique in Michigan in that all three of its data centers have successfully completed a SAS 70 Type II audit.

SAS 70 for data centers is similar to ISO 9000 standards for manufacturing enterprises. SAS 70 is a nationally recognized audit standard for evaluating the process and security control procedures across the data center. A Type I audit demonstrates that the data center operator has the proper controls and procedures around physical and network security, environmental controls, system availability and performance. The Type II audit demonstrates that not only are the controls and procedures are in place, but that those controls have been followed consistently over time.

Online Tech invested nearly $ 250,000 into the SAS 70 audit process to ensure the security, controls, and processes in each of its data centers are closely followed and monitored. "We won a significant business based on the success of a SAS 70 Type I audit earlier this year," said Mike Klein, President of Online Tech. "The Type II audit demonstrates our commitment to delivering on our security and quality promises and proves our ability to support companies facing Sarbanes Oxley requirements when they outsource their data centers through colocation or dedicated server hosting."

By completing the SAS 70 audit process, Online Tech's clients have assurance that each of its data centers consistently demonstrates the same high standard of security and control. Online Tech posted its experience about Surviving a SAS 70 Audit on its web site and authored several articles on its blog including What to Look for From a SAS-70 Hosting Provider and What is a SAS-70 Audit?.

The independent auditing firm UHY, LLP examined each of the data centers closely, specifically examining compliance with the control objectives in the areas of organizational structure, governance and administration, physical and environmental controls, physical and network security, and system availability and performance.

The SAS 70 audit, or Statement on Auditing Standards ("SAS") No. 70, was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) as a means of auditing and reporting the effectiveness of operations and controls of a service provider. The resulting SAS 70 audit report enables Online Tech to communicate details on internal operations and security controls to our clients in an industry accepted format. Independent auditors perform thorough testing and assessment of each of our controls.

About Online Tech

Online Tech, Inc. is one of the Midwest's Premier Managed Data Center Operators. Online Tech helps companies manage their growing demand for data and computing capacity through its SAS 70 secure and reliable multi-tenant data centers. With a full range of managed colocation and managed dedicated server offerings, industry leaders trust Online Tech to insure their servers are always on, always online, and always safe.
