Whether because of a car accident, a defective product or simple carelessness, personal injury cases start well before litigation and suit are filed. For this reason, personal injury victims need an experienced trial attorney. Litigation is full of pitfalls for those who do not regularly handle such cases. They begin early in a case while the injured person is still seeking medical advice and attention.

MEDICAL DEVICE & PHARMACEUTICALS
Manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceuticals are responsible for making and marketing safe products. Distributors, suppliers, retailers and others who make those products available must likewise protect public safety. If a product goes to market with a defect that results in a personal injury, the originating source or sources can be held accountable.

BAR FIGHT LIABILITY
Establishments that offer alcohol have a legal responsibility not to serve drinks to patrons who are visibly intoxicated. This law is commonly referred to as a dram shop law. If a bar or restaurant fails to live up to this responsibility, they could be held accountable if the drunk customer starts a bar fight and injures another person.
