Submissions are reviewed by founding attorney Scott J. Corwin and the firm's staff.
Most of you know him as the host of the hit show "Price is Right," while others may know him for his fierce advocacy for animal rights. Bob Barker, aged 94, was recently transported to the hospital from his house in Hollywood. Paramedics were dispatched to Barker's home for, "unspecified medical aid." Some suspect this hospitalization may be related to a previous back injury or possibly a fall he sustained in his home in 2017 in which he injured his head. Regardless of the severity of the pain or injury, we wish him a speedy recovery.
