The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) urges homeowners to be mindful of the dangers associated with heating and fuel-burning equipment.

The NFPA offers the following practical tips for a safe and worry-free winter:

  • Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms monthly. Properly maintained alarms can save lives in the event of a fire or dangerous CO levels.
  • During and after a snowstorm make sure vents for the dryer, stove, furnace, and fireplace are clear of snow build-up.
  • Use your oven to cook food only. Never use it to heat your home.
  • If you need to warm a vehicle, remove it from the garage immediately after starting it. Do not run a vehicle or other fueled engine or motor indoors, even if garage doors are open. Make sure the exhaust pipe of a running vehicle is not covered with snow.

Drug Alert: Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Several fluoroquinolone antibiotics – including Avelox, Cipro, and Levaquin – are now at the center of several lawsuits after being linked to permanent and adverse side effects.

Studies have connected the use of these drugs to peripheral neuropathy, or permanent nerve damage. Other complications include aortic dissection – which can lead to more serious issues like stroke, heart attack, or paralysis – and aortic aneurysm, which can be a silent killer.

Lawsuits allege that the drug manufacturers knew about and concealed the risk of irreversible nerve damage. Plaintiffs claim that they took these powerful antibiotics for conditions like sinus infections that could have been treated with by other, more suitable types of antibiotics.

If you have experienced permanent and adverse side affects as a result of taking these drugs, contact Law Offices of Gary Green today. Call us toll-free at 1-888-4GARYGREEN or email ggreen@gGreen.com.
