Plaintiffs Cases

When you have suffered a loss or been wronged by a person or entity a lawsuit for damages or injunction is often the only remedy available. Common Plaintiff’s cases include: professional malpractice, negligence cases, product liability, personal injury, business and commercial disputes, real estate disputes, insurance coverage disputes, lender liability, ERISA, FELA, asbestos, tobacco, industrial and consumer chemicals, and wrongful death.
It is important to have an experienced attorney skilled at dispute resolution to achieve a favorable result in a case. Often a dispute can be resolved outside of the courtroom with settlement negotiations and mediation. This saves considerable amounts of money and time that a trial would cost.
