Consumer Protection Areas
Areas of consumer protection we work in include:
While the FDA oversees the approval and manufacture of most drugs in the US, some drugs are defective and cause consumer injury. Defective drug claims fall under manufacturing defects, design defects, and failure to warn (defective marketing). A defective drug claim can involve many defendants: drug manufacturers, testing laboratories, pharmaceutical sales representatives, physicians, and medical facilities.
Defective products cause thousands of injuries across the country each year. Product liability law establishes legal rules concerning the people and entities responsible for dangerous and defective products. Product liability refers to the seller or manufacturer being held responsible for putting a defective product in the hands of consumers.
Sometimes a patient is harmed by a doctor or other medical professional who fails to perform their medical duties properly. To prove a medical malpractice claim, there must have been a doctor-patient relationship; the doctor engaged in negligent behavior; the doctor’s negligence caused your injury, and the injury led to damages.
Personal injury or tort law allows an injured party to go to court and obtain financial damages for losses related to an accident caused by another person or organization. The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to allow the injured party to obtain compensation and to be ‘made whole’ after he suffered harm caused by another party’s negligence.
Environmental law involves legal guidelines that improve and protect the environment of the US. An environmental lawsuit deals with regulations and issues concerning the environment. People frequently file lawsuits because of benzene exposure. Roundup lawsuits are becoming more common as well due to people getting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma from using the weedkiller. Other cases involve chemical spills, wetland destruction, air and water pollution, natural resource depletion, and toxic waste dumping. Companies may be ordered to pay compensation for damaging the environment and causing harm to consumers.
Mesothelioma is a rare cancer involving the delicate lining of the lungs and other internal organs. Asbestos exposure can cause tiny fibers carcinogenic fibers to lodge in the delicate membranes. Over the decades, the asbestos fibers may cause DNA changes that cause cancerous tumors to develop. If you have been exposed to asbestos and develop mesothelioma, you could be entitled to compensation.
Putting an elderly or ill family member into a nursing home is a difficult decision. While most of these facilities provide a high level of care, nursing homes are costly to operate. High overhead costs can lead to corners being cut that could cause nursing home patients to suffer injuries. Some nursing home employees may also engage in actual abuse and neglect of the residents. You may be entitled to compensation if it can be proven your loved one was abused or neglected.
