The Safety Report
Group shot of Tor Hoerman Law Firm

Welcome to
The Safety Report Fall/Winter 2012

In this issue, we focus on sports-related injuries—taking a hard look at the prevalence of concussions in youth sports, why they're gaining conversation momentum and how we can protect players.

Message from the Firm

TorHoerman Law believes that people committed to justice can make a difference. For many years, we have successfully taken on some of the largest companies in the world on behalf of clients that have been injured by defective drugs, medical devices and toxic chemicals. We will continue to pursue these industries until they make the risks of their products public.

Until these risks are made public, we feel it is important to fill in the information gap and believe The Safety Report is a valuable tool in doing so. To that end, we hope you will find this newsletter educational with regards to potentially hazardous products and conditions to help keep you and your family safe. Although we represent injured people, nothing makes us happier than preventing injuries.

We welcome your feedback and invite you to visit our website, our blog, Facebook and Twitter pages to post your comments and suggestions.
