Knowing Who To Contact Can Be an Important Step in the Recovery Process
If you or someone in your family has been seriously injured, then you have experienced first-hand how much a person’s life can be changed in the blink of an eye or an instant of time. When something terrible and unexpected like this happens, the seriously injured person and their families are suddenly thrust into a world of chaos and uncertainly that just days or even hours ago seemed unimaginable. As you try to regain some level of control in the midst of all the uncertainty, you might be wondering or asking yourself, “What do we do now?” or “What’s next for us?”.
Defective Medical Device
Our client underwent a common hip replacement surgery but was implanted with a defective product that required multiple revision surgeries that ultimately destroyed the hip joint and caused significant permanent physical disability.
Pedestrian Struck by Car
Our client was a pedestrian that was struck by a motor vehicle and suffered a serious brain injury
