“In my 17 years with the Chargers, we never had an ambulance come,” said orthopedic surgeon David Chao, San Diego’s team doctor from 1997 to 2013. “I’ve never had a 911 call for a football player injury.” Fortunately, Bridgewater’s injury was not as devastating as it could have been. The Vikings announced that Bridgewater did not suffer arterial or nerve damage. But Bridgewater is looking at a major rehab over the next year-plus, and his career was just thrown a significant curveball. “In order to have a testimony, you have to have a test,” Bridgewater said in a statement. “I come from amazing DNA, I watched my mom fight and win against breast cancer.

Las vegas accident attorney
LAS VEGAS — Attorneys say former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid is due to testify Thursday in his negligence lawsuit against the maker of the exercise device TheraBand. Product chief Allison Ryan of Ohio-based device maker Hygenic Corp. returned to the witness stand Wednesday. Reid blames the company for injuries he suffered when his grip slipped and he fell while using a flexible physical resistance band in his bathroom on New Year’s Day 2015. A company lawyer calls it an accident and says it was Reid’s fault. The 79-year-old former Democratic Senate majority leader was blinded in one eye, and he says that forced his retirement after 30 years in the Senate. The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages. It claims negligence and failure to warn the product is “unreasonably dangerous” for elderly people like Reid. Copyright 2019 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
