Ron Johnson is an attorney who has devoted his career to representing the injured victims of malpractice and negligence throughout the United States.  Ron’s practice has a specific focus on complex litigation involving catastrophic injuries from defective medical devices, including testosterone therapy and Stryker Triathlon knee replacements, hospital mistakes, truck and car accidents, harmful consumer products and exposure to dangerous conditions on other’s property. Ron has succesfully represented victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries from defective products in courts from California to Connecticut.  Ron has recovered tens of millions of dollars on behalf of the victims of such negligence.  It is important to him that these victims are financially able to pay for the extensive future medical care that they will require, as well as replace their lost income if they are no longer able to work as a result of their injury.  Handling large and complex national litigation requires extensive experience and knowledge.  Through his years of litigating these cases, Ron has developed a network of professional colleagues across the country who are some of the finest attorneys handling injury cases.  By working with his colleagues in a collaborative fashion, Ron is able to maximize the recovery for clients  no matter where in the country their case might be filed.

"From the first day I became a lawyer, I made the deliberate decision to only represent those individuals who were hurt, needed help, and could not afford to hire a lawyer who charged a big hourly fee.  It is an honor to be able to spend every day of my working life helping to put good people back on their feet and fighting for justice on their behalf."
