Trial Lawyers Board of Regents Honors James Lowe with 2014 Litigator Award

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Jan 22, 2015 4:10:00 PM

Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA is proud to announce that partner James Lowe has received the coveted 2014 Litigator Award for his achievements as one of the nation’s premier personal injury attorneys.  Presented by the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents, the Litigator Award ranks among the highest honors that a lawyer can achieve.  With fewer than 1% of lawyers winning the Litigator Award, James Lowe has once again proven that his dedication to serving his clients is second to none.

The Litigator Award winner selection process does not rely on peer popularity; instead, winners are chosen based on actual “Verdict & Settlement” dollar achievement, making them among the most rigorous and openly judged award ratings anywhere. The Performance-Oriented Rating Methodology used to judge nominees makes the Litigator Awards program among the most rigorous trial-law competitions in the nation. Candidates get a thorough “vetting” by independent audit and research teams, which helps ensure that the verdicts and settlements are within the guidelines needed to win.

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Jan 20, 2015 2:15:29 PM

Consumer finance website WalletHub just released its ranking of 2015’s Most and Least Risky States for Drivers’ Wallets and, unfortunately for Ohio drivers, the Buckeye State fell in the bottom half of the list.  The rankings, which are based on local liability insurance requirements, additional (if any) types of required insurances, and estimated percentage of uninsured motorists, placed Ohio at No. 30 among all states and Washington D.C.  Had the rankings been based solely on percentage of uninsured motorists, Ohio would have fallen even lower on the list.

Pro Performance Recall Highlights the Dangers of Defective Exercise Equipment

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Jan 14, 2015 9:16:23 PM

Pro Performance, a fitness equipment manufacturer, has recalled more than 50,000 of its SKLZ Resistance Trainers after receiving reports of serious injuries to users.  The SKLZ Recoil 360 All-Position Resistance Trainer includes a flexible cord that stretches during the product’s use.  Because of a faulty weld on the device, the cord may snap back during use and is known to cause blunt trauma, puncture wounds, and lacerations to users.  The defective product was sold as recently as December 2014 in sporting goods and fitness stores, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, and through Amazon.com.

Whether working on a New Year’s resolution or simply working off extra weight from the holidays, many people are getting back into the habit of working out.  Unfortunately, thousands of people each year are injured by exercise equipment.  While consumers can protect themselves by practicing proper form and receiving instruction from trained professionals, proper form and education may mean very little if the equipment or device itself is defective.

Improperly Installed Child Safety Seats Pose Serious Risks

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Jan 2, 2015 10:53:10 PM

Parents, grandparents, and other childcare providers are constantly on the lookout for potential dangers to their child’s well-being.  One of the most pressing dangers, though, involves a device specifically designed to keep little ones safe: the child safety seat, or car seat.

If you follow our recommendation of checking for product recalls, you will know that child safety seats are some of the most frequently recalled products on the market.  While defective car seats do pose significant risks, an equally concerning issue is installation of the seats.  After all, even a safe, non-defective car seat can endanger your child’s health if the seat is not properly installed.
