Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Whether due to a vehicle accident, construction accident, or case of premises liability such as a slip and fall, our firm deals with the most serious and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), paraplegia and quadriplegia. We understand the unique features involved in these types of cases, such as the importance of developing a comprehensive life care plan that documents the full range of additional expenses and needs.
A wrongful death — one that was caused by someone else’s unlawful actions — is especially hard for the families who must carry on. Losing a loved one results in more than just the emotional impact; families must also contend with loss of income, loss of help and costs related to the death. If you are considering legal action related to a wrongful death, the experienced lawyers at Crane Flores, LLP can help you navigate the legal system and get the best results during a difficult time.
Defective Products and Dangerous Drugs
Drug companies and product manufacturers may be held liable under several product liability theories, including strict products liability, the consumer expectation test and general negligence. From defective tires causing rollover crashes to defective DePuy hip replacements, we hold product makers accountable for their design and manufacturing defects that cause injuries to consumers. We also take on the big drug companies that market drugs, such as Fosamax and Reglan, that carry debilitating side effects that may far outweigh any benefit they provide.
Animal attacks can cause severe physical injuries and lasting psychological and emotional damage, particularly among small children who all too frequently are the victims of such attacks. Dog owners are strictly liable when their animal injures another person and can be held liable for medical expenses, pain and suffering, reconstructive surgery and other damages.
Sexual Molestation and Abuse
Sexual assault, rape, sexual molestation and abuse may all be prosecuted criminally. But these crimes are not always prosecuted by the state because it may be hard to find witnesses and evidence, so sometimes the guilty go free. We handle the civil side of these matters, holding the abusers accountable for their actions in civil court and forcing them to pay for what they have done. We recover damages for physical injuries, pain and suffering and the intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Asbestos and Mesothelioma
Although it is less widespread than it used to be, asbestos continues to be used in a host of industrial and commercial products. People continue to suffer from long-term asbestos exposure, contracting illnesses such as asbestosis, lung cancer and an otherwise rare form of cancer known as mesothelioma. At Crane Flores, LLP, we have access to an extensive network of mesothelioma experts and other resources that allow us to prepare a strong case for our clients, and maximize the compensation they receive.
Jones Act (Longshoreman)
Under the Merchant Marine Act, also known as the Jones Act, longshoremen and covered seamen and maritime workers who are injured on the job may sue their employers for negligence and recover damages similar to a personal injury civil lawsuit. We represent dockworkers and shipyard employees, as well as vessel crew members injured by the negligence of the ship-owner, captain or fellow employee.
