Heparin Contamination Still A Mystery

Hundreds of people have had allergic reactions and so far 81are dead from contaminated batches of the blood thinner, heparin.

Heparin, made by Baxter International, has now been recalled from the U.S. market as well as Canada, Germany, France and Japan.

The FDA launched an investigation into the Chinese manufacturing plant where the raw material for heparin is made from pigs' intestines obtained from unregulated local cottage industries. China is the largest supplier of raw heparin in the world.

The FDA found a contaminant in recalled vials, oversulphated condroitin sulphate, which is made from animal cartilage and is a cheaper alternative to raw heparin.

The contaminant may have been added intentionally at some point in the manufacturing process, according to the FDA which admits because of underfunding it had never inspected the Chinese facility.

Owned by Wisconsin-based Scientific Protein Laboratories, China is reportedly refusing to let the FDA inspect the plant.

Farah & Farah has been fielding calls from patients harmed by heparin and experiencing symptoms such as dizziness, difficulty breathing and nausea after heparin use.

If you or a loved one has been given the blood thinner and suffered an adverse reaction, contact our downtown Jacksonville law office.

Chuck and Eddie Farah Discuss Changes to Laws with First Coast News' On Point

Jacksonville personal injury lawyers Chuck and Eddie Farah of the law firm Farah & Farah appeared on First Coast News' On Point to discuss changes to laws in Florida that went into effect starting July 1. Chuck and Eddie appeared on the show to help the public stay informed about the changes that could very well influence their lives in relation to property insurance and medical malpractice. The attorneys addressed the new 36 month (3 year) deadline a person in Florida has to file a property insurance claim with their insurance company, which may create several challenges since it can take a long time to gather the appropriate and effective evidence. They also talked about the changes in the definition of “sink hole” and how that affects a person's argument when seeking property damage compensation. Chuck and Eddie also discussed the new medical malpractice cap on damages for Medicaid patients in Florida, which they argue could result in a constitutional challenge since it gives people fewer rights than those who pay for private insurance.

Study: Jacksonville third most dangerous city for pedestrians in America

The Florida Times Union
by Larry Hannan

In this article, Eddie Farah gives his input on pedestrian law in Florida:

Personal injury attorney Eddie Farah said his firm gets a new pedestrian-injury case about once a week, likely because drivers don't pay attention to pedestrians that aren't in crosswalks. They should.

"Under Florida law," Farah said, "a driver is responsible to look out for pedestrians."

Local Attorneys Buy Easter Clothes For Children of Murdered Parents

Angela Williams

March 31, 2009

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Easter Sunday comes every year. This time around three-year-old Travis Boone Jr. will have a new suit to wear.

He's not alone. His brother and sister will also get new Easter clothes thanks to a local attorney's office. For three years Charlie Farah and his brother Eddie have bought easter presents for children of a murdered parent.

"Everybody thinks about the Easter holiday as kind of a rebirth, and we think the kids are important when you think about that. We need to get back to the community, and this is a way to do it," says attorney Charlie Farah of Farah & Farah Law Firm.

When the children's grandmother, Elizabeth Toole, found out what they were going to do for her son's children, she was touched.

"Just to know that they're happy. That's what I work for every morning, all day to make sure they're happy and safe," says Toole.

Jeremy Travis Boone Sr. was brutally murdered back in September of 2007. Since then, Toole adopted the three children and looks after her other 16-year-old son.

"He was a good father, he was a good son, he was a good friend," says Toole.

Each year more children are added to the list for victims of slain families. As long as there are names, Farah says they will do their part to give back.

"I don't know if anything can bring a family back from experiencing that, but this is maybe some way of giving back to them to show them there are people that care, and hopefully there are better times ahead," says Farah.

Farah & Farah continue to partner with the Children of Slain Families organization in order to make the Easter shopping spree possible.

This year they will be shopping for eight children.

Brunswick Church Can't Wait to Witness History

Ashley Coleman

January 18, 2009

BRUNSWICK, GA -- 15-year-old Andrew Carnes will be getting a history lesson at our nation's capital this week.

The Brunswick High School student will join millions of Americans for Tuesday's inauguration when Barack Obama becomes our 44th president.

"You never would think you would see an African American president welcomed to the White House," says Carnes. "It's like Martin Luther King spoke and he left the door open for Barack Obama just to walk in."

Carnes is one of 56 members of the First Jordan Grove Missionary Baptist Church traveling by bus to Washington D.C.

Dorothy Hill is another church member going on the trip. She grew up during the civil rights movement and only dreamed about a moment like this.

"I had hopes that one day someone would rise up and face the challenge and I'm excited that it's Obama," Hill told First Coast News.

Four teens from the church received scholarships for the trip from Jacksonville attorney Eddie Farah. They were chosen after writing essays about why the teens wanted to attend the inauguration.

The church leaves at midnight for the nation's capital. They will return from their trip on Tuesday night.
