If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or death as a result of an accident, you may be entitled to bring a claim against the responsible person or company so that you may be fairly compensated for your injuries. The term "injuries” is broader than just pain and suffering. Other compensable elements besides pain and suffering include lost wages, medical bills, and other out of pocket expenses, as well as compensation for the loss of enjoyment of life (in some circumstances) and loss of consortium. You need an experienced lawyer to protect your interests and ensure that you receive full compensation for your injuries.

Product liability is an area of the law which holds a manufacturer or seller of a dangerous or defective product responsible for personal injury or property damage resulting from use of such a product. A product is defective if it is unreasonably dangerous for its intended use and it does not provide the level of safety the public is entitled to expect. Many products, including automobiles, tires, drugs, construction equipment, industrial machinery, appliances, food, medical devices, and tobacco have been found to be defective. Depending on the facts surrounding the claim, there are several theories of recovery available to an injured party.

Consumer fraud includes a wide variety of improper practices involved in the advertising, marketing, sale, or lease of goods or services. Many consumer fraud cases involve allegations that sellers of a product misrepresented the product’s features, quality, or other characteristics, while others claim that products do not perform as advertised. Consumer frauds also take place when companies overcharge customers for products or services, or mislead consumers about the terms of sales agreements or the existence and duration of warranties. Most states have consumer protection statutes that provide remedies for individuals that have been defrauded by unscrupulous business practices.

Toxic tort lawsuits seek monetary compensation and other relief for injuries resulting from environmental contamination and hazardous chemical exposure. People are often exposed to toxic chemicals from pharmaceuticals, from consumer products, and from their home or work environment. While a significant number of toxic tort cases arise from exposure to pharmaceutical drugs, there are also many occupational toxic tort cases, because industrial and other workers are often chronically exposed to toxic chemicals - more so than consumers and residents. Most of the law in this area arises from asbestos exposure, but thousands of toxic chemicals are used in industry and American workers suffer a variety of toxic injuries from different industrial chemicals.
