PERSONAL INJURIES & DANGEROUS PRODUCTS
DO YOU HAVE AN ACCIDENT, PERSONAL INJURY OR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM?
Attention Medical malpractice and personal injury claims are governed by a very short statute of limitations, so you must not delay or you will lose your rights. For information on the recently shortened one-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice, click here.
Personal Injury Our offices have collected many millions of dollars of claims and judgments due to accidents including automobile, truck and motorcycle accidents, consumer injuries due to unsafe products, unsafe drugs, medical malpractice and wrongful death involve unique provisions of insurance law and corporate liability, including punitive damages. In addition to the well known areas of injury law, new types of injuries are rapidly expanding related to: IVC Filters, Bair Hugger blankets, Invokana, Xarelto, Pradaxa, Transvaginal Mesh, Morcellator, talcum powder, Zofran and Metal-on-metal hips. If you have any questions regarding any type of personal injury, please call us.
Slip and Fall Premises Liability If you are seriously hurt in a “slip and fall” accident in a business location in Las Vegas, and it was not your fault, please give us a call. The law does not allow a casino or nightclub bouncer to touch or hold a patron, unless he/she presents an imminent danger to himself or others. These cases need to be investigated immediately to preserve important video footage and other evidence, including eye witness reports, so if you were involved in a slip and fall, please give us a call as soon as possible.
Assault & Battery The civil and criminal laws against assault and battery and/or false arrest impose serious liability on club owners and out-of-control bouncers who break the law. If you were the victim of a serious, unprovoked assault and battery or false arrest by casino or nightclub bouncers, please call our office.
Motor Vehicle Accidents Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents Personal injury victims in accidents with a car, truth, or motorcycle often find their pain and suffering compounded in an unfair contest with insurance companies who don’t play fair. It is important for you to know your rights against insurance companies so you can fight back for justice. If you are involved in an accident with a car, truck, motorcyle, commercial vehicle such as a taxicab, bus or truck, please give us a call. We also sue drunk drivers and donate a portion of our proceeds to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers.
Medical Malpractice Malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to do what a competent professional would have done, resulting in injury, disability, physical impairment or death. While most medical professionals are highly skilled and work honorably for their patients, a very few fall short of even minimal standards. As a result, medical malpractice kills between 47,000 and 100,000 persons each year, and many more are gravely injured. More people are killed as a result of medical errors every year than the number who die from motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer or AIDS. These types of cases are very hard and expensive to prosecute. Due to recent legislative actions, sometimes known as “tort reform” and the resulting “caps” on malpractice damages, only the most obvious and egregious medical malpractice cases will be considered.
Products Liability is the area of tort law that holds designers, manufacturers and sellers liable for the harm suffered by buyers and users of defective products and dangerous drugs. A “product” can be almost anything, from a dangerous prescription drug to a defective children’s toy. “Defects” include flaws or mistakes in the way a product is designed, manufactured or marketed, such as a defective ASR (all metal hip replacement made by DePuy Orthopaedics). Products liability lawsuits can be based upon strict liability, breach of warranty, negligence, manufacturing and design defects and breach of the duty to warn. These types of cases usually require a scientific expert to give expert testimony about the particular design defect in question. We are experienced and successful products liability lawyers.
Mesothelioma is a disease that is associated with exposure to asbestos dust, that causes tumors in the lungs, abdomen and heart. If you have been exposed to asbestos and have experienced medical problems, please call our office immediately.
Dangers Drugs & Dangerous Products are the bane of our society. Unscrupulous drug manufacturers use human beings as guinea pigs for their lethal profit machine. Perhaps it is best explained in a recent article in Vanity Fair called “Deadly Medicine” in which it is reported that “prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year.” The Vanity Fair report states that number is bound to go up, “now that most clinical trials are conducted overseas—on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chinese—in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesn’t reach, and ‘mistakes’ can end up in pauper’s graves.” Our firm is now accepting cases that relate to IVC Filters, Bair Hugger blankets, Invokana, Xarelto, Pradaxa, Transvaginal Mesh, Morcellator, talcum powder, Zofran and Metal-on-metal hips. If you or a loved one has been injured by IVC Filters, Bair Hugger blankets, Invokana, Xarelto, Pradaxa, Transvaginal Mesh, Morcellator, talcum powder, Zofran and Metal-on-metal hips, please give us a call. We would love to help you.
