Pregnancy Discrimination


A jury in California has awarded a former AutoZone employee $185 million for discrimination she faced at work while pregnant. The jury found that the discrimination against this employee was systemic – extending all the way to the corporate office – and therefore deserving a settlement that helped set future corporate policy.
As with many other forms of workplace sexual harassment, this employee was better served by taking legal action than trying to solve things on her own. Many corporations have shown a willingness to dismiss or further harass and humiliate employees who step forward, making it necessary to seek legal representation as soon as possible following any type of workplace discrimination.
The experienced employment law attorneys at The Cochran Firm strongly believe that everyone is deserving of a safe and fair work environment. If you believe your rights have been violated or if you have faced harassment based on your sex, gender, or any other reason, we are here to take your case, protect your rights, and help ensure that justice is served.
To schedule your free consultation with one of our sexual harassment attorneys, please contact The Cochran Firm today. We maintain offices throughout the country to provide legal representation for workers across the nation.

Chrysler Expands Recall


Like Honda before them, Chrysler has announce an expansion of its recall for vehicles equipped with Takata airbags. Adding nearly 281,000 vehicles to the recall list, Chrysler maintains no injuries have been reported due to this particular airbag defect. The company holds that its recall of what is now more than 617,500 vehicles is precautionary only.
If you have been notified by Chrysler or another auto manufacturer of a recall, be sure to visit your local dealership for recommended repairs. There should be no charge for fixing defects, even if the car is no longer under warranty.

Honda Expands Recall


Honda has recalled an additional three million vehicles due to the risks associated with Takata airbags. Exploding airbag deflators manufactured by Takata are blamed for at least five deaths in the United States. Honda, Takata’s biggest customer, continues to recall vehicles that may be impacted by this problem.
It is important to remember that a recall does not waive a company’s liability when defective products cause harm.
Defective vehicles injure and kill thousands of people every year. If you or someone you love has suffered injury from a vehicle defect – including issues with airbags – you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side immediately to help ensure justice is served.

ATVs Pose “High Risk” of Injury and Death for Children


According to a study published in the November 24th online edition of the journal Pediatrics, “riding ATVs poses high risks of injury or death for children and teens.” The study, conducted in part by researchers at University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, found that 95 percent of all ATV-related deaths were suffered by children riding adult-sized vehicles.
The study’s authors note that adult supervision is key to helping prevent serious injury or death. However, they also note that, “engineering improvements in safety, such as shorter seats and requirements to meet stability and crashworthiness standards, would help prevent injuries.”
All ATV Accidents deserve a full investigation from an experienced personal injury attorney. The attorneys at our firm have the resources necessary to identify all causes of an accident and the tenacity required to help victims get proper compensation.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an ATV accident, please contact The Cochran Firm today to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our experienced attorneys.
