Richmond Hill Personal Injury Lawyer
If you are suffering an injury or illness caused by another person’s carelessness or negligence, you may be feeling confused, frustrated, or angry. The medical bills and household expenses don’t go away just because someone else caused your injury, but your own insurance wasn’t enough to cover all the costs. There should be something more you can do.
At Chris Hudson Law Group, we want to help you get the compensation you deserve when someone else causes you this kind of pain and suffering. Whether you have been injured in a car accident, have a workplace injury, or were given medication that has caused a lasting illness, our attorneys want to get you the compensation you need for your injury and recovery.
This is a difficult time for you, and our goal is to make things easier for you and your family. Our legal team will take on the hard work, from investigating your claim and gathering the paperwork, talking to witnesses and experts, to negotiating with the insurance companies and their attorneys. We have been practicing personal injury law in Georgia for nearly 20 years, and we know about the needs of our clients and our community. If you need a Richmond Hill personal injury attorney, call Chris Hudson Law Group at 706-863-6600 today.
We practice personal injury law in two areas: individual cases and mass torts.
All injuries are personal injuries, but when you need to take someone to court to get compensation for an injury they caused you, you should have the services of a personal injury attorney. We can help if you’ve been injured in any of these ways:
- Bicycle Accidents
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Wrongful Death
- Brain Injuries
- Dog Bite
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Truck Accidents
- Burn Injuries
- Medical Malpractice
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Worker’s Compensation
Mass torts are like class-action lawsuits in that they involve multiple plaintiffs, or injured parties, filing similar claims against a single defendant. The difference between the two types of cases is how the court handles the case and the outcome for the plaintiffs.
In a class-action lawsuit, a “named plaintiff” who is representative of the entire group, or “class” of plaintiffs, brings the case on behalf of the rest of the plaintiffs, even those who may not be involved in the filing. The ruling in the case affects everyone who has agreed to accept the class designation, and the award is divided among the total number of plaintiffs in the class.
Mass torts function in much the same way, except each plaintiff is allowed to bring their own case against the defendant. The court will review each mass tort plaintiff’s case individually and make a ruling and award based on the facts in their case.
In a mass tort case, the defendant corporation may set aside a sum of money for future settlements, and then claimants can file cases against the company. If the claims are proved, then their award is drawn from that set-aside sum.
- 3M Combat Arms™ Earplugs Version 2. A product liability claim may be filed for veterans of Afghanistan or Iraq deployed between 2003 and 2015 who were issued these earplugs. A known defect may cause hearing loss or tinnitus.
- JUUL Lawsuits. Product liability claims may be filed for product defects or manufacturing defects involving the devices and the vape juice capsules.
- Truvada. Multiple lawsuits are pending against Gilead Sciences, Inc. due to the side effects of this HIV treatment drug.
- Hernia Mesh. Multiple manufacturers of abdominal mesh implants have been sued, and some products have been recalled for implant failure, infection, adhesion, and other side effects.
- Roundup. Monsanto has faced multiple lawsuits and judgments after the herbicide “Roundup” was linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, an aggressive cancer.
- Paraquat. This popular weed-killer was only recently linked to Parkinson’s Disease, but evidence shows the manufacturer was aware of the potential risk and concealed the knowledge.
- IVC Filters. Improper use and faulty manufacturing by multiple companies of these devices intended to trap blood clots in the lower extremities have led to thousands of legal actions.
- Talcum Powder. Legal action against Johnson & Johnson made the risk associated with talcum powder well-known, but all talcum powder has been implicated in risks of ovarian cancer and lung cancer.
- Elmiron. A painkiller used for the bladder disease “interstitial cystitis,” Elmiron has been linked to a type of eye disorder called pigmentary maculopathy.
This problem in Georgia is not new, but it is increasingly hitting the mid-level investor. As more people entrust their savings to financial advisors, more and more people are finding that not everyone who promises to take care of their money should be trusted to keep their word.
Securities law is a complex area of law that fits between fraud and business law and involves elements of deceptive practices, theft, breach of duty, and more. Not only the loss of your money is involved, but the loss of your trust and possibly the loss of your future financial stability as well.
Any time you hand your money over to another person, you’re taking a substantial risk, even if you read over the prospectus carefully and did your due diligence. If you think you were the victim of securities fraud, contact the attorneys at Chris Hudson Law Group immediately.
