This is a big move from our nation’s capital and, despite wariness from the federal government, many other states are making the same move. [Read more…]

Northern Mississippi and the Memphis metro area have experienced an unseasonably cold winter thus far, with more frigid temperatures headed our way.

With this in mind, I thought I should pass on the newest changes to speed limits in Olive Branch, Mississippi.
Residents and commuters in Olive Branch are likely noticing that many limits have been lowered from twenty-five to twenty miles per hour, and others from thirty to twenty-five.
According to a recent DeSoto Times-Tribune article and City Engineer Steve Bigelow, the reduced speed limits are not part of an organized program. [Read more…]
As an employee in the Northern Mississippi or Memphis area, you trust your employer to provide a safe and friendly working environment in which you can thrive and be successful.

These are class action suits based upon claims made by patients and patients’ families relating to cardiac failure after receiving dialysis at various Fresenius dialysis clinics.
As an experienced medical malpractice attorney in Southaven, Mississippi serving Northern Mississippi and the Memphis metro area, I thought I’d address these claims and help explain what is going on.
To best explain the situation, I’ll use the help of an article from Allnurses.com.
