When your family is hurt by company negligence

In this morning’s Roanoke Times are two articles about local families who have been injured by company negligence.

In one article, a little boy died from an accident he sustained at day care. In another, a family has hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills when their child obtained fungal meningitis from tainted steroid injection.

Sadly, corporate negligence is not new.

Think of the Triangle Factory Fire in 1911 in New York City. 146 workers were killed when the fire erupted, unable to escape the building because management had locked the doors to prevent workers from taking breaks.

Today, we think of the NECC tainted steroids that killed two injuring over 100 in our corner of Virginia.

And there are many more examples you may not be aware of.

So who do you call when your family has been injured because a company cut corners, staff, or failed to do what was right?

Our firm has handled these cases across Virginia for almost 30 years. Currently we are handling the following kind of corporate negligence cases:

  • Trucking accidents (Company fails to train their drivers or allows them to drive too many hours)
  • Tainted steroid meningitis cases in Virginia
  • Hospital or Nursing home patients abused (physically or sexually) by other patients or staff
  • Customers assaulted (physically or sexually) by other customers in a retail store
  • Health care providers fail to perform background checks on workers and patients are victimized
  • Products liability – when companies fail to recall products that have known dangers and hazards

These cases are complicated, often difficult to prove and hard fought. We would be honored to help you analyze whether your family’s injury could have been prevented.
