Is hair dye a dangerous product?

It's safe to assume that, when consumers in Washington, D.C. make beauty and hygiene-related purchases, they're thinking about how the product might make them look or feel.

Unfortunately, one recent study suggests that some of these products might contribute to the development of cancer among users.

Premises liability suit after young girl falls at Mall of America

Washington, D.C., businesses have a responsibility to provide a safe environment, free from hazards that could cause injury to anyone visiting the premises.

A good example of such an instance is a recent case involving a young girl's fall at the Mall of America.

The woman is now suing Lifepoint Hospitals and a number of defendants after the alleged carelessness of the negligent doctors there resulted in the amputation of her leg.

Prescription medication Abilifty linked to compulsive behavior

With tens of thousands of patients taking aripiprazole every year, there is a good likelihood that a number of Washington, D.C. residents have taken the drug at some point.

However, a growing number of lawsuits indicates that the negative side effects may far outweigh any potential benefits.

Medical malpractice suit blames infant's death on negligence

Worrying about one's own health is stressful enough, but when it comes to the health of one's children, few things are more important. Like others across the nation, most residents of Washington D.C. have no choice but to rely on the knowledge and training of doctors and hospital staff to ensure their children receive proper and adequate medical treatment. Sadly, a woman in another state recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging that her trust in the hospital staff there was misplaced, as their negligence ultimately resulted in the death of her infant son.
