Toxic Mold Cases

Mold is prevalent in damp climates. Most large mold deposits can be detected through sight and smell. Typical physical symptoms associated with exposure to toxic mold include memory loss, allergies, and breathing difficulties. Some people are particularly susceptible to illness from toxic mold, especially those with asthma and other existing respiratory problems and infants. These people may suffer fever and mold infections within their lungs. Many doctors fail to properly diagnose the cause of such symptoms as exposure to toxic mold. See your doctor if you have experienced serious health problems because 
of toxic mold exposure.

    Motor Vehicle Accidents

    While motor vehicle accidents comprise a significant portion of personal injury and wrongful death claims, it would be wrong to think that they are always simple to resolve. We understand not just the "rules of the road" and the special duties imposed on commercial and public carriers, but also the complex scientific and engineering principles often necessary to unravel just how an accident occurred and who, if anyone, was at fault. We handle accident cases involving:
    Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Rear end collisions
  • Intersection accidents
  • Alcohol related crashes
  • Hit and run
  • Passenger injuries
  • Driver injuries
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Semi-truck and tractor trailer crashes
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Medical Malpractice

     Medical malpractice, simply put, occurs when your medical provider deviates from the normal standard of care. Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care for the profession involved. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be liable for an injured person's damages. Though the majority of health care providers do good work, mistakes are sometimes made which could adversely affect a person, as well as their family and friends, for the rest of their lives. We have extensive experience in cases involving:
    Medical Malpractice
  • Birth-related injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Obstetrical and gynecological malpractice
  • Patient neglect
  • Medication errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Nursing home negligence, abuse, and neglect
  • Pharmaceutical Litigation

    Some of the most recent recalls of dangerous prescription drugs include:
  • Fen-Phen
  • Baycol
  • Rezulin
  • Propulsid
  • Ritalin
  • Oxycontin
  • Ephedra
  • Arava
  • Meridia
  • Serzone
  • PPA (Phenylpropanolamine)
  • Pharmaceutical Litigation
    In these types of cases, pharmaceutical, drug, and insurance companies have always held a big advantage over individuals and families injured by their products. Armed with a battery of legal and forensic experts, as well as extensive resources used to investigate and handle claims, these businesses and corporations project a "David and Goliath" image when dealing with plaintiffs who raise legitimate issues regarding harmful side-effects, irreversible injuries, or deaths. Our firm has the ability to take on the daunting resources of pharmaceutical, drug, and insurance companies, and believes that such injuries demand an immediate and appropriate reaction.

    Products Liability

    Every year, thousands of consumers sustain serious injuries from defective products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety. The main incentive to increase product safety is to avoid potential liability in product liability lawsuits, which provide compensation for the personal injuries sustained from the use of a defective product. If you have suffered injuries due to a defective product you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer to recover damages. You do not necessarily have to prove that the manufacturer was negligent. Product liability claims, often called strict product liability can be established if you are able to prove three things:
    Products Liability
    1. The product was defective
    2. The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product
    3. The defect caused your damages

    Manufacturers and their marketers must label the product in such a way as to warn of all dangers associated with its' use. They must specifically state how that product should be used and warn you of the hazards.
    Our mission in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for our injured clients and to create an economic incentive for those in the stream of commerce to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives. The damages the consumer is entitled to receive in a dangerous or defective product case include compensation for: 
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of physical capacity
  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
  • Punitive damages
  • Business and 
    Commercial Law 

     Whether building or acquiring facilities or equipment, contemplating business mergers or acquisitions, contracting for the purchase or sale of goods and services, developing policies, procedures, plans and agreements concerning employees and independent contractors, or simply attempting to comply with the constantly-growing array of rules, regulations, codes, ordinances, statutes and laws affecting businesses. Areas of practice include:
    Business and Commercial Law
  • Business and commercial litigation
  • Consumer protection
  • Contracts
  • Commercial transactions
  • Construction law
  • Corporate, shareholder, and partnership disputes
  • Covenants not to compete
  • Director and officer liability
  • Employment law
  • Fraud
  • Insurance coverage and
  •  claims litigation
  • Intellectual property litigation
  • Landlord - tenant
  • Leases
  • Licensing
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Real estate
  • Trade secrets
  • Our clients recognize the advantages that a personal relationship can bring to legal planning and to the anticipation, avoidance and resolution of legal problems. Over the years, we have demonstrated an ability to successfully resolve matters short of litigation when that is possible and through litigation when necessary to achieve our clients' goals.
