Today, asbestos is universally recognized as a highly toxic substance. But just a few decades ago, asbestos was one of the most widely used materials in the U.S. It was used as a building material and the base ingredient for thousands of products. Sadly, this proliferation of asbestos resulted in the biggest man-made epidemic in history which claimed countless lives.

The scale of the human tragedy caused by asbestos could have been significantly reduced if the companies that mined and sold asbestos and asbestos-based products had not denied and concealed the true danger of asbestos from the American public.

If you or someone in your family has been impacted by asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, you can get financial compensation from these companies by filing an asbestos lawsuit. Contact our asbestos lawyers today.

The Bard PowerPort (also known as the “BardPort”) is a port catheter device that is implanted just under the skin to allow for easy attachment to a catheter for the intravenous delivery of fluids or medication. The Bard PowerPort has inherent design and manufacturing flaws that make the device prone to fracturing and migrating out of position. This can cause serious injuries including internal vascular damage.

Individuals who suffered injuries as a result of a defective Bard PowerPort device are now bringing product liability lawsuits against the manufacturer of the PowerPort implants. Our firm is currently accepting new cases from anyone who had a Bard PowerPort port cath device implanted and was injured due to a fracture, migration, or other failures of the implant.

What is Bite Force?

Emotional distress or emotional harm can often be just as painful as a physical injury. This post will provide a detailed, reliable answer to the very common question of when someone can file a lawsuit and get damages for emotional distress.

What is Emotional Distress?

Emotional distress is a legal term that is used to describe mental pain, suffering or anguish that is caused by the negligent or intentional actions of someone else. Tort law in the U.S. generally recognizes emotional distress (often referred to as “pain & suffering”) as a type of injury for which monetary damages can be awarded. In most states, however, damages can only be awarded for emotional distress if the emotional distress is directly caused by physical harm.
