Asbestos & Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a tragic disease affecting thousands of workers who were exposed to asbestos. Asbestos companies were aware of the link between asbestos and mesothelioma for decades, but continued to produce, market, and sell asbestos for many industrial applications. That put all the exposed workers at risk for a painful and often fatal cancer. Today, those suffering from mesothelioma may be entitled to compensation from asbestos companies for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. We’ll help you navigate the claims process and ensure that you get the maximum possible compensation. Read more.

We need antibiotics to fight off infections, blood thinners to prevent blood clots, and anti-inflammatory drugs to treat everything from sore muscles to headaches. Our lives may depend on the drugs that doctors provide us. Unfortunately, some drugs also come with serious and potentially dangerous side effects.

If you’ve suffered serious medical side effects from your medication, you may be entitled to compensation from the makers of the drug. We have decades of experience dealing with lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies and we can help you get the most from your case. Read more.
Defective Medical Devices
A good medical device can make a huge difference in the quality of life of the patient. Hip replacement patients can walk again. Sufferers of degenerative disc disease can once again stand up straight without pain. However, sometimes devices make it to market without adequate testing or without relevant warning labels for doctors and patients. That can result in serious injuries to the patient. If you’ve been injured by a defective medical device, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of your medical care, your pain and suffering, and wages lost due to inability to work. We have extensive experience with medical device lawsuits and we’ll help you fight for the compensation you need. Read more.
Sometimes, a badly designed product is just an annoyance or inconvenience. Other times, a badly designed product can cause serious bodily harm. A badly designed power tool can cause terrible injuries, as can a poorly made construction vehicle. Bad wiring in a piece of machinery, defective ladders, and equipment without necessary safety guards are the same – the injuries caused by those defects can be very grave. When a company sells a product that is made incorrectly or designed poorly and it hurts someone, that company has to bear the cost. If you’ve been injured by a defective product, we’ll help you get the compensation you deserve. Read more.
Doctors take an oath to do their best to care for their patients. Sometimes, their best isn’t good enough. Doctors work long hours with little rest and may have to see a lot of patients in a given day. They may make mistakes. Unfortunately, a doctor’s mistake or error in judgment can have serious medical consequences for the patient. Patients injured by their doctors may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses. Read more.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents can cause damage to the drivers and passengers, bystanders, the cars, and other property. If the accident is serious, the cost of dealing with injuries and property damage can rack up fast. If the wreck wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay that cost. The insurance of the other driver should cover the bill. Of course, insurance companies use their teams of attorneys to make sure they pay as little as possible. You need an attorney on your side to help you fight for what you deserve. Read more.

That means you’ll have to haggle with the insurance company to try to get your bills covered. We have years of experience in dealing with insurance companies to get our clients the money they need.

Trucks are heavier and more difficult to maneuver than cars. That makes them particularly dangerous in a crash. In addition, truck drivers often work long hours – and driving while tired is extremely dangerous. If you’re injured in an accident with a truck, you may be entitled to compensation. We employ experts across the country to reconstruct the accident, make a compelling case, and get you the compensation you deserve. Read more.
You’re legally entitled to workers’ compensation if you’re hurt on the job. Your employer, however, won’t automatically provide it.
