Women More Likely to Suffer Whiplash

Posted on Thursday, June 26th, 2008 at 3:06 am    

A new study produced by Umea University of Sweden finds that women are much more likely to suffer whiplash in low-velocity car accidents than men.

The study makes this claim after studying a number of low-velocity car accidents. It says women are more likely to be hurt because of how they sit in the car. Women tend to sit closer to their steering wheels as well as have the back rest in a more vertical position than their male driver counterparts.

If you have been treated for whiplash or another neck injury following a car accident, contact the Lake Geneva neck injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 1-800-275-1729 to discuss your case and to determine your legal options.

Crocs Linked to Escalator Entrapment

Posted on Thursday, June 19th, 2008 at 5:06 am    

Crocs and other soft-sided clogs have been linked to 75 cases of escalator entrapment since January of 2006. There were a total of 77 cases of escalator entrapment since then.

The soft sided clogs are resulting in trapped individuals when the people stand too close to the sides or edges of the escalator steps. 

A 3 year old girl was injured in the escalator of New York’s JFK airport. Another 4 year old boy was injured in a mall in Virginia. The Washington subway system has noticed such an increase in injuries to people wearing Crocs on its escalators that it has posted a warning. The majority of injuries have been to young children.

Japan, the site of 3.9 million sales, has asked the Colorad0-based manufacturer to change its design of the shoes due to the number of people who have become trapped in escalators. They received 65 complaints of escalator entrapment linked to Crocs between June and November of 2007, a period of just 5 months.

Half of the accidents reported in the United States resulted in injury.

If you have been injured in an escalator due to Crocs or other soft sided shoes, contact the Lake Geneva product injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 1-800-275-1729 to discuss your case and to determine your legal options.
