Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Claims

If you find that you need a wrongful death lawyer, our firm can handle your wrongful death lawsuit claim.

A wrongful death lawsuit claims that a person died as the result of the malpractice or negligence of another person or entity, and that the surviving family is entitled to compensation for their loss and for the pain and suffering of the one who died.

Under the common law, this type of claim did not exist because a claim for personal injury ended with the victim. A spouse or child could not claim damages from the person who caused the victim’s death. To correct this injustice, each state has passed some form of wrongful death statute. Although they follow the same general principles, each state’s law is unique.

The experienced attorneys at our law firm can help you through the legal process and obtain full recovery for the wrongful death of your loved one.

Your ability to recover damages and the amount of your recovery will depend in large part on the strength and reputation of the law firm you select to handle your case.

Defective Drugs

Defective Drugs

Every year, thousands of people die or are seriously injured from adverse reactions to prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The attorneys at our firm have achieved national recognition for the verdicts and settlements they’ve obtained representing injured clients against irresponsible drug manufacturers. We have filed lawsuits against the makers of Fen-Phen, Vioxx, Baycol, Ephedra, Hormone Replacement Therapy and many others.

In this state and most other jurisdictions, drug manufacturers are 100% responsible for the safety of the drugs they make, market and distribute. Drug manufacturers are required to provide clear warnings of the risks their drugs pose to the user. When a drug manufacturer makes an unsafe product (defective drug) or fails to provide adequate warnings, it must pay damages to those it has injured, or to the families of those it has killed.

If you or someone you love has been harmed by a medication or defective drug, it is important that you seek out attorneys who have experience in this area. If the drug is already the subject of a class action or other type of mass tort lawsuit, there will be special procedural rules in place. It is important to have attorneys who are familiar with these special procedures.
