On Tuesday, October 29, an accident between an automobile and a female pedestrian left a 50-year-old woman battling serious injuries. The accident occurred on Hammond Avenue at the Blatnik Bridge.
According to a report released by Superior Deputy Chief Nicholas Alexander, the woman is receiving medical care at St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth in their intensive care unit after she was found by the police lying in the northbound lane of Hammond Avenue, unconscious but breathing. Her name is being withheld while confirming positive identification.
The driver, a man from Duluth, was released after failing to exhibit signs of impairment and sobriety. Initial breath tests also detected no alcohol. He stated that the pedestrian must have stepped out from the crosswalk, and he was not able to see her until she was right in front of his vehicle.

The Los Angeles jury will resume deliberations on Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial against AEG Live on Tuesday, October 1.
The panel began deliberations on September 26 and 27. Nine out of 12 votes are needed to reach a verdict on a civil trial; a unanimous decision is needed on criminal trials. There’s no final verdict yet.
Jackson’s mother and his three children filed a $290 million lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live for personal and unspecified damages caused by Dr. Conrad Murray’s – Jackson’s personal physician – alleged failure to supervise and his administration of fatal doses of sedatives and anesthesia to the singer. Jackson died in 2009 at the age of 50.
Murray is currently serving a four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter. AEG Live said that it was Jackson who demanded to hire Murray and did not inform his financial backers of his medical treatments.

The world’s biggest multinational employer, Walmart, was fined $190,000 in connection with health and safety hazards the company’s environment posed to its Rochester store employees in New York- just like those discovered in nine other Walmart branches throughout the U.S.
Walmart consented to the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) demands by willingly saying it would see to it that a safer working environment is provided in 3,000 of its stores that are located in 28 states across the U.S.
Occupational safety and health assistant secretary of labor Dr. David Michaels said that the agreement will provide for a safer and healthier work atmosphere for thousands of Walmart employees and expects other employers to make similar provisions for a healthy workplace.
Although Walmart has agreed to pay a hazard fine for its unsafe store conditions, these existing hazards could have caused serious harm to employees and customers.

A defect in the child safety lock mechanisms of certain Ford vehicles resulted in the recall of approximately 12,569 cars by the company in early July.
According to a statement made by Ford on Wednesday, July 10, all Lincoln MKS, Taurus, and Explorer cars built between November 29, 2012 and December 12, 2012 will be recalled beginning August 5, 2012 due to a flawed door latch. The flaw causes the child safety lock to deactivate by itself, which could endanger children.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) posted on their website that this defect could increase the risk of unnecessary injury to a child as the rear doors could be unlocked at anytime without the driver noticing it.
Ford also announced that they will notify all those affected by the recall and will replace the locks for free.
When your child has suffered injuries or was endangered due to a car manufacturer’s negligence in Lake Geneva, our lawyers at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® understand how difficult it can be. Find out how we may be able to help you by calling 800-242-2874 today.
