Our firm has been in business for 40 years, and our attorneys have helped thousands of clients suffering from personal injuries get the results that they deserve. No matter what problems you have, you can put your trust in us to get the job done. Our experienced attorneys also handle all insurance-related matters that arise when handling personal injury and auto accident cases.Our attorneys strive to protect our clients’ best interests at all times. We know that families may be struggling to pay their bills while caring for a loved one. However, we often advise our clients to avoid accepting early settlements offered by insurance companies before seeking proper medical care. These companies know that serious injuries can manifest themselves weeks after the initial accident occurred, and offer quick settlements to limit their payout. If you accept, you cannot go back to the insurance company a second time to pay for these new injuries. We do our best to stop this from happening to our clients, and fight to get you the maximum compensation available in your case.
Our attorneys handle all personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis, which means you are not charged for our services unless we recover compensation at trial or in a settlement.

Product recalls are often associated with civil lawsuits that usually have many plaintiffs suing one or a few corporations as defendants. These claims can be brought in state or federal courts. Courts refer to these action as “mass torts” in part due to the number of litigants, but also because of how the plaintiffs’ attorneys use mass media to discover more people who have been hurt by the corporation. For a lawsuit to be a mass tort, a product must have harmed many people, the same defendant caused those people harm, and they consolidate the suit into one action rather than separate lawsuits.
Advances in technology, particularly production and distribution, are part of the reason why mass torts have become necessary in the legal arena. Because of large production and distribution, large numbers of people can be affected by a single product. Mass tort litigation involves many areas of the law, but the two most common mass tort claims involve:
- Pharmaceutical Claims – Many pharmaceutical companies release products without proper testing or even knowing there are serious side effects. These can be prescribed drugs, over the counter medications or medical devices.
- Product Claims – When a product is dangerous or doesn’t act as the consumer expects, the people who were injured by the hazardous device may sue the company through a product claim.
