Ativan Side Effects LawyerWritten by Anna Henningsgaard
The drug Lorazepan is marketed under names Alzapam, Ativan, Loraz, Lorazepam, Intensol. Ativan is safest form of this type of drug because it has less of an effect on liver than other benzodiazepines, which means that a patient can take it in conjunction with other liver affecting medications like birth control pills, anti-abuse drugs, propranolol, and ulcer medications. However, Ativan also has dangerous side effects. If you or a loved one suffer from any of these harmful side effects, stop taking drug immediately and contact both a doctor and a lawyer. Drugs are meant to improve your health and wellbeing and if Ativan threatens you or makes you sicker you have a right to take your injuries to court.
Ativan is a mild tranquilizer with many different applications, and depending on how it is used it can cause different side effects. Ativan is commonly used to relieve anxiety, to calm manic schizophrenics, and as an intravenous pre-surgery relaxant. Ativan may also be used to cure such diverse maladies as alcohol withdrawal symptoms, to treat serial seizures in children, to promote amnesia, and to relax severe vomiting of patients after chemotherapy.
The dangerous side effects of Ativan, however, are just as diverse. Many patients suffer from allergic reactions that manifest in difficulty breathing, closing of throat, and swollen lips, face, and tongue. Some people develop open sores in mouth and throat or yellowed skin and eyes or a widespread rash. Some patients even suffer from hallucinations, severe confusion, and changes in vision. As you can imagine, these side effects seriously threaten quality of life of patients using Ativan. In addition, it has negative reactions with many ordinary drugs like antacids. ga
Workers’ Compensation in MichiganWritten by Mike Mahon
Workers’ Compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that pays medical bills and replaces some lost wages for employees who are injured at work or who have work-related diseases, injuries, or illness. In Michigan workers’ compensation provides medical, income, death and burial benefits.
Even though all employers in State of Michigan are legally required to carry worker’s compensation insurance, it doesn’t necessarily mean claims will be handled appropriately.
There are exceptions to rule, too. For example, farms and farmers are exempt under Michigan WCA (Workers’ Compensation Act) guidelines. Named partners and officers of partnerships and corporations may also be exempt even though their employees must be covered.
Workers’ compensation is specifically designed to only cover injuries that "arise out of and in course of employment." In most cases, it is obvious whether or not injury occurred at work. However, there may be occasions when an employee is away from office on company business and a covered injury occurs. This does not apply to traveling to or from work.
