Streppone for a FREE consultation. Everything will be kept confidential.
Product liability. Hazardous products sometimes enter the marketplace as a result of defective manufacturing or design, faulty labels or a lack of danger warnings. All too often, consumers suffer injuries while using such products. However, product liability law allows you to hold manufacturers strictly liable for damages, and an experienced injury lawyer can help you recover deserved compensation.
Mesothelioma/asbestosis. Unfortunately, manufacturers and business owners knew about asbestos dangers but still exposed many workers to asbestos in construction, the automotive field and other industries. Asbestos can cause latent diseases such as mesothelioma (a fatal cancer) and asbestosis. If your doctor has diagnosed you with mesothelioma or asbestosis, protect your legal rights by consulting with a lawyer as soon as possible.
Defective Drugs. Just because a drug is released into the marketplace or a doctor prescribes a drug does not mean the medication is safe. Every year the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalls numerous drugs that harm people. In addition, people suffering severe injury because of harmful drugs file lawsuits against the pharmaceutical companies that manufactured them. So can you.
Defective medical products. While most medical devices bring patients relief, defective medical devices have caused devastating injuries. Metal-on-metal hip and knee replacements, transvaginal mesh and certain IUDs are examples of faulty medical devices that have harmed patients and led to numerous lawsuits.
Construction site accidents. Some industries are inherently more dangerous than others. Statistics show that contractors and laborers on construction sites put themselves in harm’s way every day. Workers operating cranes, standing on scaffolds and using other site equipment frequently suffer from serious injuries. However, New York Scaffolding law, negligence and liability laws can help you protect your rights to recover fair compensation.
Medical malpractice. The medical field holds doctors, surgeons, dentists, physical therapists and other medical professionals to certain standards of care. When medical practitioners fail to adhere to industry standards and their failure results in a patient’s injury, grounds often exist for pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Whatever the nature of your accident or injury, it is worth your while to consult with an experienced injury lawyer to protect your interests. Initial consultations are free and you owe no fees unless the attorney is successful in recovering damages.
If you have been hurt in an accident or by a product, you may be entitled to a cash reward. It is important to have an attorney who understands your legal status in the United States guide you through these types of cases while protecting your rights so you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
