NH Injury Attorneys: Celebrating a Safer, More Just America

People Who Make a Difference

The NH injury attorneys at Manning & Zimmerman Law are pleased to present the 2018 Justice Served Awards. These recognitions honor each of these nominees for their commitment to a safer, more just America.

Martina Vendenberg
Martina Vandenberg helps lawyers fight human trafficking
Holding Human Traffickers Accountable For Their Crimes

Martina E. Vandenberg is the founder and president of The Human Trafficking Legal Center (HT Legal), a pro bono legal organization that trains lawyers to provide legal support to human trafficking victims. Vandenberg and HT Legal hope to decrease human trafficking, estimated to affect more than 400,000 people in the United States, through three objectives:

  1. Hold the U.S. government accountable. The government rarely prosecutes human trafficking cases, and even when it does, victims often are denied financial restitution. HT Legal conducts research to expose failures in the system, reach out to prosecutors and drive legal reform.
  2. Deter human traffickers by forcing them to pay compensation to victims. Even if traffickers are not prosecuted for criminal charges, there is another option for victims: civil litigation. HT Legal trains attorneys willing to represent victims at no cost and seek damages from traffickers and third parties that benefit from trafficking.
  3. Challenge impunity through strategic litigation. HT Legal and its partners use strategic litigation as a catalyst for this change by forcing government action, driving legal reform, punishing perpetrators and compelling companies to end or prevent abuses in their business practices.

Through HT Legal, Vandenberg has trained more than 3,200 pro bono attorneys nationwide to handle human trafficking cases.

Mike Moore
Mike Moore held Big Tobacco accountable and is now taking on Big Pharma
Stemming the Tide of Opioid Abuse Through Litigation

Mike Moore is a lawyer and former attorney general for Mississippi. In 1994, Moore was the first state attorney general to sue the tobacco industry for lying about nicotine addiction and to hold companies accountable for the cost to the public of treating sick smokers. He persuaded lawyers and other AGs from across the country to take on Big Tobacco, resulting in a $246 billion settlement, still the largest in U.S. history.

Last year, Moore decided to turn his sights on Big Pharma and the opioid abuse epidemic. Deaths from prescription opioids – drugs like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone – have quadrupled since 1999. Moore and his colleagues argue that the original marketing for OxyContin (by drugmaker Purdue) as non-addictive was based on questionable research. Since then, more than 400 cities, counties and Native American tribes have filed lawsuits against pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors and pharmacy chains. As with the settlement from Big Tobacco, Moore hopes to take any damages awarded and put it toward opioid abuse education and prevention.

Gretchen Carlson
Gretchen Carlson advocates against mandatory arbitration clauses in employment contracts
Protecting Employees Victimized by Sexual Assault

Forced arbitration clauses, which are now used by a wide range of companies, are now found in over 55 percent of employment contracts. Instead of going to court, employees must settle the dispute in secret arbitrations, usually by an arbitrator chosen by the defendant. In cases of sexual assault or harassment, these forced arbitration clauses can protect harassers from public consequences, opening the door to serial and long-term harassment.

Forced arbitration clauses not only protect abusers from a court of law, but also silence employees from speaking publicly once through arbitration. Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News anchor, sued Fox News after she was fired for allegedly refusing sexual advances from Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes. Fox attempted to have her claims adjudicated in closed-door mandatory arbitration instead of court, effectively requiring that the details of her case be legally hidden from the public. Since settling her lawsuit with Fox News, Gretchen Carlson has been an advocate for legislation that prohibits forced arbitration clauses in employment and consumer contracts.

Sevonne Huang
Sevonne Huang is taking on Tesla after her husband died in a crash
Wife of Husband Killed in Tesla Wreck Hopes to Prevent More Deaths

Walter Huang died on March 23 after his Tesla Model X, which had engaged its Autopilot system, crashed head-on into a barrier on Highway 101 in California. Walter was a 38-year-old engineer, husband, and father of two young children. When Walter’s wife, Sevonne, saw the crash on the news, she knew right away it was her husband. Sevonne said she not only recognized his car, but knew that her husband was involved when she saw where the crash occurred. Walter had previously complained about the car moving toward that same barrier while on autopilot before the crash.

Despite settling a class-action lawsuit with several Model X and Model S customers, which alleged that the assisted-driving Autopilot system was “essentially unusable and demonstrably dangerous,” Tesla still blamed Walter Huang for the crash in a statement. Sevonne has hired a firm to sue Tesla in an effort to bring them to justice and prevent future crashes. “I just want this tragedy not to happen again to another family,” she said.

NH Injury Attorneys Discuss Defective Medical Devices

Defective Medical Devices Can Hurt More Than Help

nh injury attorneys
From Nov. 2002 to Dec. 2012, 41 percent of all recalled devices from 20 companies were orthopedic.

According to the NH injury attorneys at Manning & Zimmerman Law, the United States Census Bureau has reported that the U.S. population will reach a turning point in 2030. That is the year when every surviving member of the baby boomer generation will be 65 or older. Seniors will outnumber children for the first time in U.S. history and will make up one-fifth of the American population.

This rise in the geriatric population has coincided with expanded medical technology. This includes the manufacture and sale of implanted devices. Diagnoses for arthritis and other orthopedic diseases and injuries are predicted to rise as the baby boomer population ages. Meanwhile, implanted devices for orthopedic injuries are already causing complications on a grand scale.

Devices Injure Patients and Add Millions to Medical Bills

Medical devices are often not scrutinized or regulated at the same level as drugs. This can cause severe injuries or death when they do not work properly. Most devices are not tested independently. They go through testing that is financed by the device manufacturer, so results are often skewed in their favor. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even has a controversial “fast track” 510(k) program. This program quickly approves more than 3,000 new devices each year because they are similar to old devices. One study has shown that orthopedic devices approved by the 510(k) program, instead of the much more comprehensive Premarket Approval (PMA) program, are 11.5 percent more likely to be recalled. Yet the FDA currently plans to expand this program.

The approval of these devices means big money for manufacturers, with a global orthopedic market estimated at around $4 billion. The race to get these implants out onto the market is putting profits over patients.

Some stories of defective implants that have injured patients:

  • Hip Implants: Tissue death, bone erosion, and extreme pain are some of the problems caused by the defective DePuy hip implant. In November 2017, six patients were awarded $247 million after a jury found that DePuy parent company Johnson & Johnson lied about the Pinnacle hip implant. In 2013, The New York Times reported that Johnson & Johnson knew an all-metal hip implant would fail within five years in nearly 40 percent of patients who had the surgery.
  • Knee Implants: DePuy was back in the news earlier this year when a man sued after his Attune knee replacement failed, causing severe pain and two follow-up surgeries. This followed a 2017 study by the Journal of Knee Surgerywhich found that the Attune knee arthroplasty system experiences an “unusually high” rate of early failure of its tibial components. Patients complained of pain, loss of motion and effusion of body fluids.

Signs and Symptoms of Implant Failure

There are many adverse effects of orthopedic device failure. If you’re worried about a potentially faulty device, here are some signs to look for:

nh injury attorneys
  • Pain and/or swelling at the location of the implant
  • Numbness
  • Impaired mobility
  • Loosening of the implant
  • Fracture in the surrounding areas
  • Symptoms associated with metal poisoning if your implant is metal-on-metal: Skin rash, cardiomyopathy, sudden neurological or psychological changes, impairment of renal function, thyroid dysfunction

If you have any type of medical device in your body, be sure to check if it has been recalled by the FDA. Finally, if a faulty orthopedic implant has affected you or someone you love, don’t hesitate to consider legal advice. Painful complications, surgeries, and excessive medical bills should not be the price you pay for the mistakes of device makers.

NH Injury Attorneys: Holding Big Pharma Accountable

According to the NH injury attorneys at Manning & Zimmerman Law, deaths due to opioid use have drastically increased in the last 20 years. In 2016 alone, according to a special report from Time magazine, nearly 64,000 Americans died from drug overdoses – “roughly as many as were lost in the entire Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars combined.” An average of 115 people die each day from an opioid overdose, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Life expectancy in the U.S. – one of the richest countries in the world – went down in both 2015 and 2016. So just how did we get here?

An Explosion of Pills and Prescriptions

The original marketing for OxyContin as providing long-lasting and non-addictive pain relief was based on questionable research.

Last year, 236 million opioid prescriptions were doled out in the U.S. The amount of prescription opioids sold to pharmacies, hospitals and doctors’ offices nearly quadrupled from 1999 to 2010, yet there was no overall change in the amount of pain that Americans reported. Deaths from prescription opioids – drugs like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone – have also quadrupled since 1999.

Until the mid-1990s, opioids were only prescribed for pain from severe injuries or to cancer patients. That all changed in 1996 with the introduction of OxyContin, an extended-release opioid from Purdue Pharma. This drug was heavily promoted to doctors as less addictive and therefore appropriate for more common conditions. As prescription opioids became a cash cow for many pharmaceutical companies, they continued to trivialize the risks while overstating the benefits of opioid usage.

Battling the Big Pharma Goliath

nh injury attorneys
Trial lawyers are working with advocates to hold opioid makers accountable.

Addiction prevention and recovery organizations, law enforcement, and health care advocates are doing their best to combat the many-headed monster of opioid abuse. Now, multiple states, counties, cities and other jurisdictions are banding together and filing lawsuits to hold opioid companies responsible for the consequences of the crisis. In so doing, they are borrowing a page from the playbook of Mike Moore, a lawyer and former attorney general for Mississippi. In 1994, Moore was the first state AG to sue the tobacco industry for lying about nicotine addiction and to hold them accountable for the cost to the public of treating sick smokers. He gathered lawyers and other AGs from across the country to take on Big Tobacco – and won. It was the largest corporate legal settlement in history, with 50 states participating and an enormous $246 billion agreement. This money funds smoking cessation and prevention programs to this day.

The Important Work of Trial Lawyers

Last year, Moore decided to turn his sights on Big Pharma. Since then, more than 400 cities, counties and Native American tribes have filed lawsuits against pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors and pharmacy chains. In February, the Justice Department announced it was standing behind the plaintiffs and plans to file a statement of interest as well.

Meanwhile, trial attorneys are working with the authorities in many of these jurisdictions to help claw back the millions spent on law enforcement, opioid-related crime prevention, and addiction treatment. Trial attorneys are also representing individuals and their families who have suffered the consequences of opioid addiction and forcing Big Pharma to acknowledge the shattered lives left in the wake of the opioid crisis.

Personal Responsibility and Activism

What can you do to help stem the growth of opioid addiction and create a future with fewer overdoses? One way is to support lawmakers who are taking on Big Pharma and holding them accountable. The other is by exercising extreme caution when coming in contact with prescription opioids in your life. If your doctor prescribes one of these drugs for you or a family member, ask about and seriously consider less addictive medications, appropriate therapies and other ways to manage pain. If you do decide to go with opiates, consider these tips:

  • Make sure you are getting the right medication.
  • Stay in touch with your doctor to make sure that the medication you are taking is working and that the dose is appropriate.
  • Follow directions carefully. Use your medication the way it was prescribed.
  • When you are nearing the end of your prescription, discuss the safest way to discontinue use and prevent withdrawal.
  • Never use someone else’s prescription.
  • Secure your prescription drugs.
  • Properly dispose of medications. Don’t keep unused or expired drugs. Check the label or patient information guide for disposal instructions, or ask your pharmacist for advice.

New Hampshire Divorce Attorneys: Inherited Marital Property

Is my inheritance considered marital property?

new hampshire divorce attorneysAccording to the New Hampshire divorce attorneys at the Law Office of Manning & Zimmerman, marital property includes anything and everything owned by either of the parties. This includes homes titled in only one party’s name, retirement funds, and yes, even inherited funds or property. It does not matter when (even if the property was purchased or received prior to the marriage) or how the property was purchased. Everything goes into the pot to be divided.

New Hampshire Divorce Law

The definition of marital property is found in New Hampshire law at RSA 458:16-a, which states:

Property shall include all tangible and intangible property and assets, real or personal, belonging to either or both parties, whether title to the property is held in the name of either or both parties. Intangible property includes, but is not limited to, employment benefits, vested and non-vested pension or other retirement benefits, or savings plans. To the extent permitted by federal law, property shall include military retirement and veterans’ disability benefits.

New Hampshire Supreme Court Decision

More particularly, the New Hampshire Supreme Court specifically addressed inheritances  in its decision In the Matter of Henry and Henry, writing:

To the extent that the respondent asserts that the trial court erred as a matter of law by dividing assets that the respondent inherited from his parents during the marriage, we disagree. By statute, marital property subject to equitable distribution “shall include all tangible and intangible property and assets, real or personal, belonging to either or both parties, whether title to the property is held in the name of either or both parties.” [citation omitted]. This statutory definition of marital property subject to equitable distribution does not exclude inherited property “belonging to either or both parties.” [citation omitted]

Dividing marital property “equitably” vs. “equally”

However, just because all funds, interests, and property belonging to either party can be divided by the court, it doesn’t mean the court will do so.  The New Hampshire divorce attorneys at Manning & Zimmerman Law know that state law allows the court to divide marital property “equitably” and equitably does not always mean “equally.” The courts have wide discretion to deviate from an equal distribution based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the age of the parties, the length of the marriage, and the earning capacity of the parties. Every division is based on the particular facts and circumstances of the marriage being dissolved.

“Before I hired a New Hampshire divorce attorney to represent me in what I knew would be a very contentious divorce, I interviewed 4 other law firms. After a personal meeting with Anna, I knew I had the right lawyer. Anna listened and understood my situation. She explained in very explicit language what I could expect and the time and expense it would take to win my case. She fulfilled her duties while winning my case. I was very happy with her professionalism and hired her a second time just recently to represent me on another matter. It was similarly successful and I would not hesitate to use Anna’s services again. I highly recommend her. “

NH Medical Injury Attorneys Discuss Patient Safety: How Safe is Your Hospital?

Patient Safety: Deadly Mistakes in the American Health Care System

NH medical injury attorneys

If your doctor wants to admit you to a hospital for a needed medical procedure, would you refuse? Probably not. But consider this: a study published by the Journal of Patient Safety estimates that at least 210,000 hospital patients die each year from preventable medical errors, roughly equivalent to 365 jumbo jet disasters! That puts medical errors as the third leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease and cancer. Refusing care is not an option for most people, but the NH medical injury attorneys at the Law Office of Manning & Zimmerman, PLLC believe you should know how patient safety can help you survive a hospital stay.

NH Medical Injury Attorneys: Protecting Yourself and Your Loved Ones from Medical Errors

According to the NH medical injury attorneys at the Law Office of Manning & Zimmerman, botched surgeries, preventable infections, improper medications and misdiagnosis are far more common occurrences in our nation’s 6,000 hospitals than most people think. The bombshell dropped in 1999 with To Err Is Human, a report from the Institute of Medicine that estimated that between 44,000 and 98,000 people die each year as a result of medical errors.

Subsequent studies validated the Institute’s report, including a 2010 review by the Office of Inspector General that pegged annual preventable deaths among Medicare patients at 15,000 per month or 180,000 per year. Another 1.5 million people are injured, according to estimates published the same year from the Society of Actuaries. And in the Journal of Patient Safety report cited at the beginning of this article, it was estimated that the death toll is probably much higher, between 210,000 and 440,000 per year. Aside from the staggering level of human suffering, medical mistakes are costing Americans between $735 billion and $980 billion annually, according to an analysis presented in the Journal of Health Care Finance.

So while providers and policymakers debate how to address the “epidemic of patient harm in hospitals” as reported in Patient Safety, what can you do to protect yourself and those you love from health care errors? Plenty, according to the Joint Commission.

Start with Awareness and a Willingness to SPEAK UP:

  • Speak up, ask questions, and ask again if you don’t understand. Know what to expect before and after a procedure, and if something changes, ask why.
  • Pay attention and get the right treatments and medications from the right people; don’t assume anything.
  • Educate yourself about your medical history: diagnosis, medical tests and treatment plan.
  • Ask an assertive, informed family member to be there as your advocate to ask tough questions if you can’t.
  • Know what medications you take and why. Bring a list that includes supplements and allergies.
  • Use a hospital that has undergone rigorous on-site evaluation. Visit Medicare’s Hospital Compare, the Joint Commission’s Quality Check, and Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Score.
  • Participate aggressively in your treatment. Ask doctors and nurses to wash their hands before touching you; check ID bracelets before treatments and medication; and label a procedure site with a permanent marker.
