By Jason Bottlinger on July 20, 2018

Transvaginal mesh has been a controversial product for a number of years now. It is a net-like implant that is frequently used by surgeons to repair several common conditions, but it has been riddled with numerous issues.

In 2016, the FDA classified transvaginal mesh as “high-risk” due to its high risk of erosion and organ perforation, which has resulted in multimillion-dollar lawsuits for many people who’ve been injured by it.

Sports Injuries: What You Need to Know to Protect Your Children

So it is only natural that we let our children experience that same joy. Not only do children enjoy playing sports, but it provides great exercise and keeps them out of trouble! Sports are not without risks, though, and so it’s important to know what to do if an injury occurs.

Nebraska Says: Bikers, You Still Need Helmets

By Jason Bottlinger on April 30, 2018

Motorcycle helmet laws have always been a highly debated and controversial issue, and both sides have very strong opinions. On one hand, helmets provide a common-sense shield that helps prevent serious head trauma and death. On the other hand, many (even a high percentage of those who do wear helmets) feel it is a freedom-of-choice issue, and that the law should not require anyone to wear a helmet. These bikers are quite adamant about this freedom, and will probably forever be fighting for their right to breeze down the freeway at 80 miles per hour with nothing but the wind in their hair.

By Jason Bottlinger on April 7, 2018

For farmers and farm workers, tractors are modern workhorses that are reliable and invaluable for a wide range of tasks. Most farmers could not imagine working their fields without a tractor, and many young farmers learn to drive tractors before other vehicles. Yet, serious accidents can and do occur around and on tractors, frequently resulting in severe injuries and even deaths.

With how common tractors are across Nebraska, it’s worth taking a few minutes to think about tractor safety and make sure you are doing all you can to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
