When you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need a trusted lawyer to look after your case.

Unlike being in a car accident, being on a motorcycle in any kind of collision can cause serious life-changing injuries. While many bike riders enjoy the thrill of riding a motorbike, there are higher risks.

School buses are specially designed to protect passengers inside. When a bus is carrying your child to school, you expect buses to have safety features to keep your child safe as they travel to and from school.

Unlike cars and vans, school buses are higher up so if a car does hit the bus, the passengers inside have more protection because the impact will be lower down. The fact that school buses are large and painted yellow improves their visibility on the road. The layout of the seats inside protect the kids from severe accidents and have shock-absorbing seat backs.

Although medical marijuana is legal in twenty-four states, recreational marijuana is legal in four states and the state of Mississippi has decriminalized some aspects of marijuana possession, but you could still end up behind bars for possession of marijuana, in some instances.

In Mississippi, if you are found with 30 grams or less of marijuana in your possession, and it is your first offense, you face nothing more serious than a fine of $250. In order to only receive the fine, you must show a valid ID, and sign a pledge to appear in court. Follow the rules, and you will not be arrested.

Risperidone, commonly known as Risperdal, is an antipsychotic drug which can be prescribed by your doctor. It is a strong drug that affects the chemicals in your brain.

There are possible side effects of taking this medication (like enlarged breast tissue, known as gynecomastia). Taking a higher dosage than your doctor prescribed can increase the chances of you having a reaction or side effects to Risperidone.

An old biker adage says “There are two types of bikers. Those who have been down and those who are going down.” While certainly not everyone who rides a motorcycle will be involved in an accident, those who are can suffer much more than physical injury.

Most will agree that a motorcycle accident is an extremely traumatic experience—from the split second terrifying realization that a crash is imminent, to the falling or being thrown, then the trip to the emergency room.

Having gynecomastia after taking Risperdal is not life threatening, but the physical changes can be upsetting, especially if you don’t know if it is reversible.

Prescribed medication like Risperdal is designed to help you cope with mental illnesses like schizophrenia.

In 2013, with the promise of spring just around the corner, Jacqueline Fox noticed her poodle, Dexter, was acting strangely. The dog would jump on Fox, cry if she left him, for even a moment, and stayed close to her side whenever possible. Fox thought there was perhaps something wrong with Dexter, but before she could take the dog to a vet, she saw a show about dogs who could sense their person was unwell. At 59 years old, Jacqueline generally felt pretty good, despite having high blood pressure, diabetes and a touch of arthritis. With Dexter continuing to act strangely, however, Fox decided to have a checkup, “just in case.”

Little more than a week after Fox’s dog began acting odd, she received a dismaying diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Fox went through surgical procedures to remove her fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterus, and even part of her colon and spleen. Fox then endured the rigors of chemotherapy. At home one day, Fox saw a television ad which suggested using J & J baby powder with talc over a long period of time could potentially raise a woman’s risk of ovarian cancer. In her depositions, Fox noted she had been shaking J & J baby powder with talc on her underwear practically every day since she was in her teenage years as a method of staying “fresh and clean.” Marvin Salter, Fox’s son, was bewildered, saying “It has to be safe. It’s put on babies. It’s been around forever.”

When taking any kind of medication, there is a risk of having side effects. In most cases, you won’t notice any changes, but it’s always important to be aware of any potential side effects before you start taking new medication.

Risperdal side effects can have a high impact on your daily life, and you should go to your doctor to let him/her know once you notice any changes.

These are the signs you may be suffering from Risperdal side effects:
