Our Philosophy: Whether you are an individual or a business, we take your case as seriously as if it were our own. Every case is on a contingent-fee basis, which means we invest in your case, we share the risk in bringing your case and we fight hard to win your case.
This depends on the kind of claim involved. The law defines the amount of time a person has to file a legal claim in court. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury and you think you might have a case, it is very important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to make sure your rights are protected.
We have handled a variety of cases involving brain injuries including: traumatic brain injuries from car crashes; brain injuries from concussion on the sports field; and delayed or missed diagnosis of brain cancer. We have also handled cases of chemical exposure that caused brain cancer.
Catastrophic Injuries to Children
Anyone can be found responsible for an injury to a child. Could be a physician or nurse who fails to provide appropriate care. Could be a company that makes a dangerous or defective car seat or other product. Could be the driver of a car who is texting or is distracted in some other way while driving.
Construction or Workplace Injuries
Catastrophic Injuries to Children
Usually, a defective drug case involves claims against the maker of the drug, a pharmaceutical company or a pharmacy that is mixing and “formulating” the drug. These cases usually involve a failure to warn of serious side effects, complications or adverse interactions involving the drug.
False Claims and Fraud
We have handled many cases involving fraud over the years. These cases have involved diverse issues, such as securities fraud (such as a Ponzi scheme); false advertising by health care providers; government contractor fraud; seafood fraud (by a fish wholesaler falsely labeling its products); and insurance fraud (falsely denying claims by knowingly misleading insureds.)
If you have been the victim of hazing, it is absolutely essential that you speak with the proper authorities about what happened. This might be your parents or school administrators or law enforcement. It is also important that you speak with an experienced attorney to make sure that your rights are well protected.
Insurance Company Bad Faith
Any healthcare provider who takes responsibility for the care of a patient can be responsible for a medical error. This includes physicians, yes, but also nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and even administrators.
Nursing Home Injuries
Prescription Drug Errors
If you have been given the wrong drug, that could be the fault of the physician who ordered the medication, the pharmacist who dispensed the drug or the nurse who administered the drug. The same is true when the wrong dose of a drug is given and when a drug is given without appreciating the potential for an adverse reaction to another drug already being taken.
Sexual Abuse and Assault
Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries to the spinal cord can be among the most devastating because damage to the central nervous system can affect any — and sometimes every — aspect of our daily life. Injuries to the spinal cord can happen in the workplace because of a fall from a piece of equipment; or in a car crash while stopped at a red light; or in the operating room when a surgeon fails to take proper precautions; even from the spread of cancer that should have been diagnosed and treated sooner.
Toxic and Chemical Exposure
Trucking and Auto Accidents
Many lawyers promise a quick settlement. We think it is more important to have a lawyer who can obtain the best settlement. A lawyer who understands how to prepare a case for trial and knows how to be successful in the courtroom is a lawyer who can fight the insurance company for the best settlement possible.
