Product Liability - Defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of injuries every year in the U.S. Product liability law, the legal rules concerning who is responsible for defective or dangerous products, is different from ordinary injury law, and this set of rules sometimes makes it easier for an injured person to recover damages. Every year, defective products claim the lives of innocent people. Harmful products cause many serious and catastrophic injuries.

Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death - This governs the liability of doctors and other treatment providers when they cause harm to a patient by rendering their services in a negligent manner.

But in general terms, a doctor will be held liable if his or her conduct fails to meet the "standard of care" provided by other doctors under similar circumstances. If you or a loved one have been injured as the result of a surgery, medication, or other medical treatment, and believe your injury may have been the product of medical malpractice, you need an attorney that has experience in dealing with medical malpractice claims by your side to make sure you receive all the benefits and compensation you are entitled to as a result of your injury.
