Powell Injury Law, P.A. focuses on the following areas of practice:
CATASTROPHIC INJURY CASES:
DEFECTIVE DRUGS & MEDICAL DEVICES, PRODUCTS LIABILITY
There are many types of consumer products that because of defects can cause serious injury or death to uninformed consumers and users of these defective products. Product liability cases involve complex legal issues and disputes which require extensive and specialized litigation experience. These cases involve claims against some of the world’s largest and wealthiest corporations and manufacturers. Examples of the type of defective products involved in these cases include the following:
- Pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and implants
- Automotive defective design and manufacture, crash-worthiness, post-collision fuel-fed fires, air bags, door latches and hatches, A-pillar, B-pillar, roof collapse, seat design, seat-belts and other vehicle defects
- Other Consumer Products
CAR, TRUCK, AND MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Powell Injury Law represents victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries and death in motor vehicle accident cases and provides full service personal injury litigation to ensure that you receive all of the damages and compensation you are entitled to. The law has recently changed and you need an experienced attorney to protect your rights under Florida’s new automobile insurance laws. When a large truck collides with an ordinary passenger car, the sheer size and weight of these trucks frequently result in severe, catastrophic injuries or death to the occupants of the car. It is a common misconception that motorcycle riders are reckless and cause collisions. In fact, in the majority of traffic crashes involving a motorcycle, the motorcycle rider is not at fault and the driver of the motor vehicle “never saw” the motorcycle. Unfortunately, even though the operator of the motorcycle is not at fault, their injuries are usually severe, if not fatal. Florida insurance laws relating to motorcycle accidents are unique and you need a specialized attorney.
Our firm represents patients and their families who suffer catastrophic injuries or death as a result of medical negligence. For example, we have represented patients whose doctor failed to diagnose obvious signs of cancer, patients suffering from life-threatening emergencies who were misdiagnosed by emergency room staff, families of babies who suffer catastrophic birth-related injuries, victims of surgical errors, and many others. It is important to understand that even with the best medical care available, there are sometimes tragic outcomes. However, we will consult with expert physicians to determine whether the doctor or hospital in your case was negligent and breached the standard of care.
Wrongful death cases are fraught with emotion and grief and require an experienced and compassionate attorney to handle the factual information and legal issues.
Toxic tort litigation is one of the most difficult and expensive cases to litigate and involves companies in various industries across America and internationally. Toxic or chemical poisoning can result from either short-term or long-term exposure to toxic and environmental hazards, which may be life-threatening and can cause permanent disability and disease. Some examples of chemical and toxic poisoning involve the following: toxic mold, organo-phosphates, pesticides, herbicides, pollution from chemical plants, run-off from industry and manufacturing, land fill contamination, mining, tobacco, Agent Orange, welding, lead, paint, asbestos and other environmental contaminations. These cases involve highly specialized and skilled experts and require specialized litigation experience. If you feel you have been exposed to any type of toxic or environmental hazard, we stand ready to represent you in your claim.
