Renowned Car Accident Attorney Tyler Nicoll Secures $300,000 Settlement for Woman Injured by Delivery Truck

NAPLES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tyler Nicoll Naples Car Accident Attorney successfully negotiated a $300,000 settlement for a Fort Myers woman for injuries she sustained in a motor vehicle collision with a delivery truck. Trial Pro’s client was stopped for traffic on Fowler Street in Fort Myers, Lee County, Florida. A commercial delivery truck driver failed to exercise proper care and violently rear-ended the unsuspecting woman’s vehicle. The force of the impact propelled the woman’s vehicle into the back of a third vehicle.

Trial Pro’s client felt immediate and severe pain in her neck and back and was taken to the local emergency room. The injured woman sustained significant injuries to her neck and back which required months of care from orthopedic specialists. Her injuries negatively impacted her ability to work and resulted in significant financial distress. Unfortunately, despite the woman’s significant economic losses and permanent injuries, the delivery truck’s employer refused to fairly compensate her for her damages.

Trial Pro attorney Tyler Nicoll was committed to obtaining his client the full value of her claim. After advising his client to reject initial inadequate offers Mr. Nicoll diligently advocated on her behalf for compensation of past and future medical care, pain and suffering, lost wages, and all other economic damages. Trial Pro’s efforts forced the negligent driver and delivery company to fully compensate the injured woman for her injuries by paying $300,000 to settle the claim.

The law firm of Trial Pro, P.A. was founded in 2001 in Orlando, Florida. Today, the firm represents individuals who have been injured in personal injury accidents including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, and more from all over Florida.

Utah US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate Has Endorsed Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste to Ensure a Navy Veteran with Lung Cancer Gets Compensated-If He Had Navy Asbestos Exposure-It Might Exceed $100,000

"We have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to make certain a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer gets compensated if they had exposure to asbestos prior to 1982. ”

— Utah US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Utah US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer advocate says, "We have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to make certain a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer gets compensated if they had significant exposure to asbestos prior to 1982 in the navy or at work. Financial compensation for a person like this in Utah or nationwide might exceed $100,000 and the financial claim does not involve suing the navy or typically the person's workplace as Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.

"Most people have heard about mesothelioma and what might be substantial compensation. Unfortunately, most people who now have recently diagnosed lung cancer and who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work in the 1950's, 1960s, or 1970s are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If the person we have described sounds like you or your loved one-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303." www.karstvonoiste.com

The Utah US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Salt Lake City, Provo, West Jordan, Sandy Hills, Ogden, Saint George or anywhere in Utah. https://Utah.USNavyLungCancer.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Utah include US Navy Veterans, a civilian employee at Hill Air Force Base, a worker at one of Utah’s dozen+ power plants, oil refinery workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, welders, insulators, machinists, or construction workers. In most instances, a diagnosed person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com

Important Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact. Frequently compensation for people like this might exceed $100,000." https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Governments and Corporations are Responsible for the Death of Small Business

No More Excuses: Small Business Needs Support, Not Lockdowns and Unfair Restrictions

When we complain about a problem and do nothing, we are worst than the problem itself. Canada has always been a country that defined itself on social responsibility. That is what Canadians do!”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How many small businesses throughout Canada have struggled and closed while many large corporations have flourished and taken bonuses for themselves? Bonuses they have been able to afford because they are subsidizing employee wages and expenses with government contribution.

How many small businesses have been shut down due to health concerns without any data that suggests these same businesses are a greater risk than the large box stores? Why is small business on lockdown while other large essential corporations have been able to operate with almost no restrictions?

When will all business have equal rights?

When will a small business that can operate safely have the same privileged rights of the large corporations and be permitted to stay open?

The bottom line on this entire argument is that classifications of essential and non-essential are discriminatory to small businesses. Most small businesses have made greater efforts to protect their customers than many of the “essential” companies that have been allowed to operate freely with minimal restrictions. Big box stores that often violate capacity and social distancing limits and have only recently been investigated for violations.

The government has made health determinations with little logic, data, or explanation on why retail businesses outside of box stores are unfairly restricted to less capacity.

After two lockdowns and still no plan, there has been no discussion regarding fair treatment for small business. Everyone knows that small businesses are working from an unfair position. Many small business owners have had to take government loans to survive. Current data released by CFIB states that small business owes more than $135 billion. This amount requires repayment to the very government that is locking them down after adjustments they have made to their businesses to become compliant to guidelines that are ambiguous. The data from various departments are conflicting and inaccurate.

It is time for the government to balance the scale. Large corporations should be in partnership with small business, not sending business out of Canada. Businesses that have been unfairly treated deserve greater tax breaks and loan forgiveness based on the financial struggles that have been exacerbated by the continued mismanagement of poorly thought-out restrictions.

SmAll Business is Essential is an initiative created by Edward Henry Company and Social Distance Management. Our goal and function is to advocate on behalf of suffering small business due to the lack of support and unfair treatment from various government restrictions. The interest expressed by many small businesses throughout Canada, and even the United States for SmAll Business is Essential to help struggling small businesses has evolved to becoming more than a cause. It is now become an organization that will be on the front lines to fight for the rights of small businesses.

It is time for Canadians to be socially responsible and ensure that fairness is included in the metrics that we are using when governing through these difficult times. It is time to give small business support, and allow them the same rights that have been allotted to large corporations for over a year.

The restrictions put on businesses should reflect the health and safety threat, the business’ ability to manage their space and people, and the quantified rate/metric of spread in a specific region.

We are currently raising finances for businesses that are complying with health and safety recommendations and guidelines to stay open. We are advocating to keep business in Canada and to support small business. Edward Henry Company will be donating 50% of the proceeds from it’s recent new book release Cut The Bullsh*T to SmAll Business is Essential of Canada. Small businesses across Canada are done paying the price. Small businesses are going to unite and stand up to government and big business, because SmAll Business is Essential.

Greg Vigna, MD, JD: Mini-slings: Less mesh, more big injuries

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna comments on AUG's failure to recognize the chronic pain that results from the foreign body response of the mesh implantation.

The position of American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) continues to place women at risk of obturator and pudendal neuralgia both of which are chronic pain syndromes…”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA , CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Do not use single-incision sub-urethral short mesh sling insertion except as part of a clinical trial….Do not offer a transobturator approach unless there are specific clinical circumstances in which the retropubic approach should be avoided ”…National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), England 2019

Dr. Greg Vigna, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, practicing physician, and Certified Life Care Planner comments, “The position of American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) continues to place women at risk of obturator and pudendal neuralgia both of which are chronic pain syndromes that reduce mobility, impair bladder and bowel function, and cause burning, lancing, and aching pain in the perineum that prevents sexual activity because of severe pain or reduces sexual function because of pain. Most victims become disabled, divorced, and/or marginalized in society as they can no longer function.”

Dr. Vigna continues, “There is little doubt that current AUGS President, Dr. Holly Richter, understands that transobturator slings for the England’s 2019 NICE recommendations that basically banned the use of TOTs in England. There is little doubt there are AUGS members who understand that the foreign body response of the mesh that includes perpetual inflammation, degradation, shrinkage, and scarification due to defects of the mesh within the obturator internus muscle is not predictable from one woman to another. It is the mesh within this muscle that is responsible for no less than 3-4 percent of the chronic groin pain observed following TOTs and mini-slings including those produced by Boston Scientific and Coloplast.”

Dr. Vigna adds, “My legal team has been busy taking depositions of implanting physicians. Many of those physicians remain clueless on the clinical symptoms of obturator and pudendal neuralgia because the Instructions for use that are provided with each device have been and remain inadequate because it doesn’t list the specific neurological injuries known to be caused by the transobturator and retropubic slings. This leads to delayed diagnoses and delayed treatment of neurological injuries caused by these devices. Implanting physicians are largely unaware that a properly placed transobturator sling or mini-sling that inserts into the obturator internus muscle may cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia acutely after implantation (or possibly months or years later) despite AUGS’ recognition that extrapelvic complications by transobturator polypropylene devices can occur.”

Dr. Vigna concludes, “Clearly we are seeing a rise in cases from Coloplast Altis and Boston Scientific Solyx as physicians believe there are safer than full length TOTs as there is less mesh. Studies to date comparing mini-slings to TOTs do not show improved safety and the jury is still out regarding the mini-sling’s efficacy.”

Dr. Vigna is a California and Washington DC lawyer who focuses on catastrophic neurological injuries caused by transvaginal mesh devices including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. His cases are filed around the country with Martin Baughman, a Dallas Texas firm. Ben Martin and Laura Baughman are national pharmaceutical injury trial attorneys in Dallas, Texas.

The Vigna Law Group targets the below transobturator (TOT) slings and mini-slings that cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia:

• Ethicon: TVT-O, Abbrevo
• Boston Scientific: Obtryx, Solyx
• Coloplast: Aris, Altis

The Vigna Law Group targets the below retropubic slings that cause ilioinguinal neuralgia, pudendal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome:

• Ethicon: TVT, TVT-Exact
• Boston Scientific: Advantage Fit, Lynx
• Coloplast: Supris

As US Secretary of State Blinken Call for Action on Sri Lanka – He was Asked to Help Refer to Int’l Criminal Court -ICC

US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken

"A Civil Society Group from Sri Lanka have sent a letter to Secretary Blinken, urging him to help refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC)"

Current Zero draft Resolution on Sri Lanka tabled does not urge Sri Lanka to be Referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for past accountability for atrocity crimes committed.

— North-East Civil Society Forum

JAFFNA, SRI LANKA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Secretary of State Blinken in his maiden speech to the UN Human Rights Council on February 24th, called on UN Human Rights Council member countries to support a Resolution on Sri Lanka.

" We encourage the Council to support resolutions at this session addressing issues of concern around the world, including ongoing human rights violations in Syria and North Korea, the lack of accountability for past atrocities in Sri Lanka, and the need for further investigation into the situation in South Sudan." said Secretary Blinken during his address to the Council.

A Civil Society Group from Sri Lanka have sent a letter to him, urging him to help refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

"We are writing to thank you for calling upon the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to support the Resolution on Sri Lanka for accountability for past atrocity crimes in that island." said the letter, written by North East Civil Society Forum.

"As you may be aware, the current Zero draft Resolution on Sri Lanka tabled by Core-Group on Sri Lanka does not urge Sri Lanka to be Referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for past accountability for atrocity crimes committed in Sri Lanka."

"We urge you to use your good offices to persuade Core-Group Countries consisting of the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Montenegro, and North Macedonia to include in the Zero draft to Refer Sri Lanka to International Criminal Court (ICC)."

"Due to the serious nature of the situation, Tamils unitedly sent a letter to the Core-Group on January 15, 2021, urging Sri Lanka to be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This call was validated by tens of thousands of Tamils in a recent rally called Pothuvil to Polikandy (P2P) which was organized by the North-East Civil Society." letter continued.

"Not referring Sri Lanka to ICC will not only open the doors for abusers of atrocity crimes to escape justice, but it will also embolden Sri Lankan political leaders and Security Force leaders to commit international atrocity crimes against Tamil people without any hesitation, knowing well that they will not have to face justice. We strongly urge you to seriously consider this risk Tamil people will face if Sri Lanka is not referred to International Criminal Court (ICC)." cautioned the letter.

"Furthermore, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in her Report dated 27th January 2021 urged UN Human Rights Council Member States to take steps toward the referral of the situation in Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC)."

"Also, twenty former senior UN officials, including four former UN High commissioners of human rights, nine independent UN experts, and all members of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Sri Lanka jointly issued a statement on February 18, 2021, titled “Sowing the Seeds of Conflict” has called on Sri Lanka to be Referred to International Criminal Court (ICC)."

BELOW, PLEASE FIND THE LETTER:

February 25, 2001

Antony J. Blinken
Secretary of State
United States of America

Dear Honourable Secretary of State,

We are writing to thank you for calling upon the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to support the Resolution on Sri Lanka for accountability for past atrocity crimes in that island.

As you may be aware, the current Zero draft Resolution on Sri Lanka tabled by Core-Group on Sri Lanka does not urge Sri Lanka to be Referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for past accountability for atrocity crimes committed in Sri Lanka.

We urge you to use your good offices to persuade Core-Group Countries consisting of the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Montenegro, and North Macedonia to include in the Zero draft to Refer Sri Lanka to International Criminal Court (ICC).

Due to the serious nature of the situation, Tamils unitedly sent a letter to the Core-Group on January 15, 2021, urging Sri Lanka to be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This call was validated by tens of thousands of Tamils in a recent rally called Pothuvil to Polikandy (P2P) which was organized by the North-East Civil Society.

Not referring Sri Lanka to ICC will not only open the doors for abusers of atrocity crimes to escape justice, but it will also embolden Sri Lankan political leaders and Security Force leaders to commit international atrocity crimes against Tamil people without any hesitation, knowing well that they will not have to face justice. We strongly urge you to seriously consider this risk Tamil people will face if Sri Lanka is not referred to International Criminal Court (ICC).

Furthermore, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in her Report dated 27th January 2021 urged UN Human Rights Council Member States to take steps toward the referral of the situation in Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Also, twenty former senior UN officials, including four former UN High commissioners of human rights, nine independent UN experts, and all members of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Sri Lanka jointly issued a statement on February 18, 2021, titled “Sowing the Seeds of Conflict” has called on Sri Lanka to be Referred to International Criminal Court (ICC).

“….the fact is that Sri Lanka has made its justice institutions unavailable to its own victims. We, therefore, echo the High Commissioner’s recommendations to work with victims and their representatives to pursue justice through universal or extraterritorial jurisdiction. Existing international avenues for accountability such as the International Criminal Court (ICC) should be considered” said the report.

SOME EXAMPLES OF INTERNATIONAL ATROCITY CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST TAMIL PEOPLE BY THE SRI LANKAN STATE:

1) According to the March 2011 Report of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka stated that war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed during the final stages of the armed conflict and around 40,000 Tamil civilians were killed in the final six months of the war that ended in May 2009.

2) According to the November 2012 Report of the UN Secretary-General’s Internal Review Panel on UN Action in Sri Lanka, over seventy thousand (70,000) Tamils were unaccounted for during the final six months of the war that ended in May 2009.

3) Several were killed when Sri Lankan forces repeatedly bombed and shelled an area designated by the Government as No Fire Zones (Safe zones). Even hospitals and food distribution centers were bombed. Several also died of starvation and bled to death due to lack of medical treatment.

4) International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) in February 2017 handed over details to UN of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as “sex slaves.”

5) According to UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office report on April 2013, there are over 90,000 Tamil war widows in Sri Lanka.

6) Thousands of Tamils disappeared including babies and children. UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances stated that the second-highest number of enforced disappearance cases in the world is from Sri Lanka.

HISTORY OF FALSE PROMISES BY THE SRI LANKAN STATE ON ACCOUNTABILITY FOR INTERNATIONAL CRIMES:

We also would like to bring to your attention that successive Sri Lankan Governments have failed to implement any of the UNHRC Resolutions, including the ones they voluntarily co-sponsored.

The previous Government not only failed to take any meaningful steps to implement the Resolution that it co-sponsored, on the contrary, the President, Prime Minister and senior members of the Government have repeatedly and categorically stated that they will not implement the UNHRC Resolution.

The current new Government went one step further and officially withdrew from the co-sponsorship of the Resolutions 30/1, 34/1, and 40/1 and walked away from the UNHRC accountability process.

Furthermore, as a snub to UNHRC, the only soldier who was ever punished and sentenced to death for killing civilians including children were pardoned by the current President.

Also, several senior military officials who were credibly accused of committing war crimes have been given promotions and treated as “war heroes.” One officer who was named in UN reports as a suspected war criminal was promoted as a four-star General.

We would appreciate if you could urge Core-Group countries on Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council to include referral to International Criminal Court (ICC) in their Zero draft Resolution.

Thank you.

CHAMPLAIN, NY, USA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

NEW ENGLAND 800 COMPANY APPOINTS, FERDINAND (DARRYL) OF BEST PHONE NUMBERS AS THEY SEE MORE DEMAND FOR VANITY NUMBERS SINCE COVID.

The 2 most powerful words used over 2 Billion times a day are CALL-NOW and the famous duo has now made the 800-CALL-NOW™.com Portfolio* available Worldwide. Other vanities were released but none like CALL-NOW and its complete corporate portfolio.

Vanity Phone Numbers are sought out by knowledgeable marketers who understand the long-term impact of how advertising works. These numbers translate into sales that add credibility and value to an advertiser. Services now include texting, social media integration, as well as live agents, so consumers can instantly create a relationship between themselves and the brand. With multiple ways to engage an audience, the original social media product is still the best, THE TELEPHONE, and it’s still the number one way for prospects and clients to engage quickly and effectively. Engaged Companies understand how and why to use real humans to answer the phone. Companies spend millions of dollars on thirty-second commercials pitched on mainstream Television, Online, and on Hand-Held devices. Every company is looking for maximum return.

The pressure is placed on advertising agencies to create a memory retention factor, somehow extending the Period-Of-Impact for every impression made. A fifteen or thirty-second commercial may have sufficient impact to increase sales over short periods, but if the audience can’t remember a contact phone number or a way to text or visit an advertiser then the entire campaign can be an economic waste of money. Just imagine the memorable value when an audience can reach an advertiser by calling, texting, or visiting a single unforgettable number/domain combination – one they saw or heard a week or more ago. And imagine the resulting referrals and conversations that will be built around every one of these impressions.

Ferdinand said, “This gesture and union between these two Companies yields results and instant recognition to help heavy-hitters excel. A single, easy to remember, domain and number will spark an instant memory recall and connection between the Brand and their many publics.” Entire corporate portfolios such as the 800-CALL-NOW.com Portfolio are rare and only the tip of the iceberg for this dynamic duo. The Ferdinand-Tartamella duo continues to focus on helping Corporations with branding and prefers a low-profile approach to increasing sales.
