We know that you have many choices when seeking competent legal services when you or a loved one has been injured by someone else's negligence. Before you make a decision, please review our information and make sure you make an INFORMED decision.

Every day someone is hurt by a birth injury, car crash, truck accident, defective product or medical mistake.  In fact, recent statistics show that: 

  • Cerebral Palsy as a result of birth trauma and injury affects approximately 10,000 babies born in the United States each year causing permanent brain damage.
  • Defective medical devices and drugs are responsible for thousands of death and permanent injuries each year despite receiving approval from the FDA. Some drugs, like Yaz and Yasmin, never received FDA approval for uses that were marketed to the public.
  • There were 25,952 injury crashes in 2007 involving semi-trucks. 
  • 1 out of every 10 patients who died within 90 days of surgery did so because of a preventable medical error.  More than 90,000 patients die each year from medical malpractice.
  • Each year thousands of families are hurt by dangerous  conditions at hotels, stores, swimming pools and amusement parks including carbon monoxide poisoning, mold exposure, defective construction.

These statistics are alarming.  Even though the causes of injuries may vary, negligence is often a common factor.  A negligent doctor, hospital, driver or manufacturer can cause serious harm.  Severe injuries are usually accompanied by substantial medical expenses and in some cases, lost wages.
