Representing the Survivors of Catastrophic Injury

Electrocution can cause a variety of catastrophic injury and sometimes death. The extent and severity of electrocution trauma is determined by several factors, including the duration of contact with the current, the amount of voltage experienced, the types of current and circuits involved, and the path the electricity takes through the body. Injuries may be caused by direct contact with an electrical source or arcing electricity, such as from a downed power line. An electrical arc can cause flash burns. Burns can occur when clothing catches fire from arcing electric current. No matter what the cause the result can be devastating to the survivor and his family.

Electrocution injuries can cause damage to any organ of the body. Burn injuries also result from hot water, fires, explosions and chemicals, as well as electricity. Survivors of electrocution and burn injuries may suffer:

  • Scarring and disfigurement, requiring extensive reconstructive work
  • Prolonged physical and emotional trauma
  • Central nervous system damage, including depression and aggression
  • Muscle and soft tissue damage, requiring surgery

Drug Recall Injury Attorney

Fighting for Victims of Adverse Drug Reactions Today, most Americans use pharmaceutical drugs for relief of minor ailments and pain encountered in daily living. In times of need, nearly every family has turned to a prescription drug to treat serious pain and disease. With informed and responsible use most consumers benefit from these medications. Some, however, do suffer severe adverse reactions, especially as floods of new drugs hit drugstore shelves. In fact, reports to doctors of severe adverse reaction to new pharmaceutical drugs is increasing at an alarming rate. It becomes difficult to make wise health choices. Consumers depend upon drug companies to competently research, develop, and test any product before it is marketed. Drug manufacturers have a clear duty to ensure products are safe when used for their intended purpose.

With increasing frequency, drug manufacturers breach that trust. Dangerous adverse reactions have resulted in serious and permanent damage to physical and mental health and have even led to death. When a drug receives numerous adverse reaction reports or when it is found to be defective, it is subject to recall. If you are suspicious you have been the victim of a defective prescription drug or over-the-counter medication, it is vital to contact a personal injury lawyer today. Our law firm will work for the outcome you deserve. You may be entitled to recovery of:

  • Past, present and future medical expenses
  • Life-care expenses and prescription costs
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Present and future pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium (spousal relations)

Help with Legal Claims and Lawsuits in Drug Recall Injury Cases

Unsafe drugs result mostly from a manufacturing defect or inadequate warning label. Sometimes defective drugs have been traced to deception on the part of the manufacturer when testing the product before market release. Drug companies are required by law to test and screen new drugs for dangerous side effects. The problem is they conduct their own internal safety trials. Reports as far back as the early 90’s prove some drug companies omit test data which would inhibit product release approval by the FDA. Current law, however, holds that manufacturers, sellers, and distributors are liable for any injury caused by their defective or unsafe products. These laws protect the consumer from unsafe drugs. Generally, a person may bring claims under several laws, including:

  • strict product liability (fault need not be shown)
  • negligence
  • breach of warranty
  • failure to warn (of dangerous side effects)

Compensation for Car Accident Injuries

Most people take reasonable precautions to defend against unexpected disasters by insuring their homes and vehicles, providing medical insurance for the family and many include life insurance to cover all contingencies. You may have been assured that if disaster strikes, all it takes is one phone call to your insurance company. When a serious car accident results in severe or even catastrophic injuries, the reality of how insurance companies deal with such an event may prove very different than you expected. At a time like this, you need to consult a respected personal injury attorney who can work to help you gain the compensation you are due.

Auto Accident Lawyer 

Severe injuries such as brain injuries, eye injuries, disfigurement, serious burn injuries, and spine injuries often require the attention of specialists and a number of surgical procedures. The medical expenses which result can soon become enormous. When extensive medical care or life-long treatment is needed the costs may exceed the limits on your medical insurance policy. Contrary to all the advertising you see and read, insurance companies are in business to show a profit at the end of the year. Paying out large amounts in injury or wrongful death claims only reduces their profits. Insurance adjusters are well trained in how to keep the amount of their offer to a minimum and in estimating how small an amount that an injured person might be talked into accepting as a settlement. An auto accident lawyer at our firm is experienced in the various tactics used by insurance companies and aggressively pursues full recovery of all damages.

Severe injuries can take a long time to heal, in some cases years. If your injuries were caused by the negligent behavior of another your claim for compensation may include medical expenses, future medical care, lost wages and loss of future earnings, and other costs directly related to the accident as well as distress, pain and suffering, and other general damages. Talk to a skilled personal injury attorney at our firm who is prepared to fight to ensure you obtain the maximum in compensation.
