SANTA CRUZ, CA--(Marketwire - April 11, 2012) - LawyersandSettlements.com, the premier publication for Online Legal Media, announced today the launch of Spanish legal news in order to expand awareness of key legal issues within the Hispanic community. The Spanish translation effort aims to provide Spanish-speaking victims with comprehensive legal news and lawsuit information, as well as a resource for Spanish legal help.
According to U.S. Census Bureau 2010 U.S. Census data, Hispanics and Latinos now represent 16.3 percent of the total U.S. population. The U.S. Hispanic population has grown by 50 percent during the decade 2000-2010. Additionally, LawyersandSettlements.com has seen a marked increase in Latino readership with 25 percent more Hispanics visiting the legal news website at the start of 2012 compared to the same time period in 2011.
Compounding U.S. Latino population growth is the disproportionate prevalence of certain diseases or conditions within this population. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the risk of diagnosed diabetes is 66 percent higher among Hispanics than for non-Hispanic white adults. A higher rate of Hispanic diabetes incidence could translate to higher exposure to potentially harmful diabetes drug side effects, such as those alleged with Actos (e.g., Actos bladder cancer).
"That LawyersandSettlements.com will be offering Spanish-language content shows their commitment to the needs of the Hispanic community," says attorney Pedro Amador. "While the Latino population is certainly growing, it's important to remember that when searching for information about complex legal issues, for example lawsuits involving drugs with alleged harmful side effects, it's helpful to have that information in your native language. With the Spanish content at LawyersandSettlements.com, Hispanic readers will be able to seek the legal help and lawsuit information they need."
In addition to Spanish Actos lawsuit information, LawyersandSettlements.com provides Spanish legal news on various other legal topics including Yaz/Yasmin lawsuits, DePuy hip lawsuits, Propecia hair loss treatment lawsuits, discrimination lawsuits and Zoloft birth defect lawsuit information.
LawyersandSettlements.com provides comprehensive legal news and critical information for those affected by once-in-a-lifetime situations involving medical device lawsuits, personal injury, defective products, California Overtime and labor issues or a host of others. Readers seeking legal help can request it by completing a form which is distributed to attorneys specializing in these cases. Trial attorneys utilize the site to keep abreast of hot legal issues and settlements as well as connect with potential clients. Web: www.LawyersandSettlements.com.
