Federal Regulators Weigh in On Truck Safety, Outdated Insurance Regulations

Brian Nettles, Esq. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”) is considering raising the federal minimum insurance requirements for trucks and buses. Nationally, truck and bus safety is a big deal for our roads. In a sense, they carry the country: food and other goods, and people–the most precious cargo of all. With this benefit comes serious risk–risk that is too often exacerbated by the motive to make profit. Driving is a dangerous activity made even more treacherous by drowsy driving. Too many companies encourage their drivers to push themselves to make deliveries, and then turn a blind eye …

The Food and Drug Administration is revamping  labels on prescription drugs to make it easier to understand which are safe to use.

Uber Faces DA’s in California for False Advertising, Among Other Things

Chris Welsh, Esq. Los Angeles and San Francisco district attorneys have joined the growing group of cities, states, and countries to take issue with the popular ride-sharing app, Uber. Uber is a smartphone app that enables riders to find private drivers. Most notably, its generally faster and cheaper than call a cab. Offering such consumer convenience, the app’s popularity boomed and investors leaped. In June, Uber was valued around $17 billion. Today, it’s reached $40 billion…more than any tech start-up in the U.S., including DropBox and Airbnb. But behind the start-up’s mind-numbing success is a darker story.  Uber’s juxtaposition …
