$1.6 Million Settlement Secured With Trucking Company and Freight Broker

By remaining aggressive and utilizing Mr. Connelly's unique knowledge of the trucking industry, trial attorneys Craig Brown and Thomas Connelly were able to maximize their client’s recovery by identifying a third-party logistics company to secure an additional $600,000 from a freight broker on top of the $1,000,000 settlement with the trucking company.

“Prior to my career as a trial attorney, I worked for a large logistics company and learned the ins and outs of the trucking and logistics industry. I now use my past experience and unique knowledge of the industry to better identify all responsible parties which helps maximize our clients’ recoveries when they are injured in a trucking crash,” said Tom Connelly.

FDA Pulls Cancer Drug Approvals Due to Safety Concerns

On June 1, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration withdrew its approval for the cancer medicine umbralisib (Ukoniq) permitted for the treatment of adults with marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) and follicular lymphoma (FL), the agency announced in a safety communication. FDA officials have determined the risks outweigh the benefits of treatment based on review of a randomized, phase 3 clinical trial, which showed a possible increased risk of death in patients taking the medicine.


Investigating: Defective OneWheel Devices

Electronically powered motor devices have taken over the transportation industry throughout the last 10 years. Despite advertisements of a dependable and easy to use product, OneWheel has been the cause of many injuries and subsequent lawsuits. Some of the most common injuries caused by this product are lacerations, broken bones, and severe brain injuries. In some of the most extreme cases, OneWheel skateboards have even caused death.
