Wrongful Death & Serious Injury
Our firm is dedicated to protecting the rights of all people who have been the victim of an accident or injury that could have or should have been prevented. Negligence is neither a defense nor excuse when the consequences are so serious. In many of these cases, people have been hard at work when an accident occurred that resulted in death or serious injury. In other cases, mere proximity has been enough to cause loss of life or harm.
The service our injury attorneys render can never reverse these accidents or injuries, but it can address the pain, suffering, and losses experienced by the victims. In civil litigation, the remedy is to extract justice for those responsible by seeking monetary damages.
Our accomplishments in the area of personal injury law, include the following:
- Recovering damages for a coal miner with catastrophic burns caused by mining machinery defects.
- Representing victims of a propane gas explosion for injuries and wrongful death.
- Representing numerous victims of various product failures and defects including saws, automobiles, firefighting equipment, medical implants, and pharmaceuticals.
Whistleblower Qui Tam
Several different federal statutes encourage citizens to reveal fraud and theft that affects the federal government. For example, the Securities Exchange Commission may award a citizen who reports fraud up to 25% of any fine the SEC imposes against a person or company that violates federal law. A person may receive substantial rewards for reporting fraud by contractors or medical care providers who cheat the government under the False Claims Act.
Our firm has handled many of these cases through the years, and if you become aware of someone cheating a federal program or falsely reporting financial information about a traded security, you should contact a lawyer knowledgeable about this area of the law before taking any other action.
