The cases that come through Clark and Steinhorn often seem to reflect the news in Maryland and the District of Columbia. People get excited about texting while driving and sure enough we see an increase in automobile personal injury cases where distacted driving plays a role.

ATV crashes are up and our law practice would have predicted it.  http://www.maryland-law.com/library/atv-injuries-and-deaths.cfm

So now food-borne illness cases seem to be on the rise and well you can imagine the rest. We have examined the dangers of E. Coli in ground beef and ironically, the Center For Science in the Public Interest has come out with a new study which shows that some of the most hazardous foods are also ones with great health benefits.

The study lists the top ten foods which have created the largest food-borne illness outbreaks. Number one, leafy greens.
Also on the list berries, sprouts, tomatoes, potatoes, eggs, oysters and tuna.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimate that 5,000 Americans die each year from food-borne illness and that one quarter of the population is sickened.
