When someone is seriously injured because of wrongdoing or negligence, we fight for compensation that is needed and deserved. A personal injury case may arise out of a variety of circumstances, including car accidents; injuries caused by defective products; dangerous drugs; slip and fall accidents; construction accidents; and many more avoidable events. If you or a loved one has been injured, we pursue maximum compensation for your losses.
Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. Sadly, most victims are not aware of the effects of workplace asbestos exposure until many years after they have been exposed. Workers at higher risk of exposure to dangerous substances include construction workers, machinists, plumbers, sheet metal workers, firefighters, oil refinery workers, shipyard workers, military personnel, power plant workers, and many others.
A toxic tort is a type of personal injury case in which a plaintiff is harmed from exposure to toxic materials or chemicals. Toxic tort claims may arise from exposure to toxins or chemicals in the workplace, at home, from consumer products, pharmaceutical drugs or the environment. To prove a toxic tort case, plaintiffs must show that they were exposed to a dangerous substance from which they suffered harm.
Outlined in the U.S. Constitution, civil rights ensure that all people are treated equally while prohibiting discrimination and harassment based on gender, physical or mental disability, race, religion, national origin, age, and other protected classes. These rights are designed to preserve individuals’ privacy and freedoms. Civil rights law also guards against overly intrusive conduct by the government.
We understand the devastating effects that victims of sexual abuse suffer. A single event can lead to trauma that lasts a lifetime. Although a criminal court can prosecute an abuser to stop and prevent future abuse, a lawsuit is required to recover compensation for the costs of rehabilitation and mental health care, emotional suffering, and more. Whether the abuser was affiliated with the clergy, a work setting, school, or other organization, we work to see that justice is served.
An injury or death due to medical negligence is devastating for both victims and their families – especially because it did not have to happen. We have the experience to handle a full range of medical malpractice cases involving hospitals, doctors and other medical staff, and nursing homes. We work intelligently to forecast the costs associated with an injury, including lost wages, pain and suffering, medical treatments, therapy, and other losses.
