Wrong-site surgery, negligent care, misdiagnosis, harmful drugs, and defective devices—our attorneys can piece together the complex facts of your case.
Much has been done to improve the safety of those whose occupations put them at greater risk, but there are still times when safety takes a hit, whether through carelessness or outright negligence. Our occupational disease lawyers are familiar with the types of disease, cancers, and injuries caused by various exposures and understand the industries typically involved.
