Asbestos and Mesothelioma
Exposure to asbestos has been directly linked with the development of malignant mesothelioma, lung and other forms of cancer, and asbestosis, a chronic inflammation of the lungs.
Benzene is a toxic chemical additive used in many industrial products, such as cleaning solvents and degreasers, which has been linked to the development of cancer including various types of leukemia.
Catastrophic Personal Injuries
Catastrophic personal injuries include brain and spinal cord injuries, severe burns, carbon monoxide poisoning and, most seriously, death.
Concussions and Sports-Related Head Injuries
The types of impact common in many sports can result in a variety of painful and debilitating injuries. Locks Law Firm pioneered this field of litigation by filing one of the first class action suits against the NFL on behalf of former players suffering from traumatic brain injuries.
Consumer Class Actions
The Locks Law files consumer class actions on behalf of large groups of individuals and who have been similarly harmed by wrongful corporate conduct, including deceptive sales practices, illegal charges to consumers, illegal waiver of rights provisions, and unfair contract provisions.
At the Locks Law Firm, our pharmaceutical litigation and defective drug lawyers are committed to serving personal injury victims and are well versed in the product liability laws that protect consumers.
The Locks Law Firm has years of experience in product liability litigation and and has obtained outstanding results on behalf of victims who have been injured by all types of unsafe products. When defective products cause injuries, the Locks Law Firm can provide a product liability attorney with the experience required to represent you against careless manufacturers, designers and sellers and assert your rights.
Environmental and Toxic Torts
Exposure to toxic chemicals in the workplace or environment can cause serious, sometimes fatal health problems, including cancer.
Medical malpractice is any act by a health care provider that deviates from accepted standards of medical care and results in the personal injury, disability, or wrongful death of a patient.
Minimum Wage Violations and Failure to Pay Overtime
Though laws exist to protect workers from mistreatment by their employers, unfortunately some employers try to take advantage of their employees by denying them their minimum wage and overtime benefit rights.
Needle Stick - CRPS
If a medical injection is performed incorrectly, it can result in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and other painful, persistent conditions.
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Nursing home abuse or negligence can take many forms. It can include physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, neglect, negligent care, and even financial exploitation.
Other Practice Areas
From motor vehicle and construction accidents to appellate cases, the lawyers at Locks Law Firm are experienced in a number of other practice areas.
Qui Tam (Whistleblower)
