Class Action Suits

This is a lawsuit filed by one or more people representing the interests of an entire class of people in litigation "who are similarly situated." Examples might include: all women who have suffered from defective contraceptive devices or breast implants, all those overcharged by a public utility during a particular period, or all those who were underpaid by an employer in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. If a class action is successful, a period of time is given for those who can prove they fit the class to file claims to participate in the judgment amount. Class actions are difficult and expensive to file and follow through, but the results can be helpful to people who could not afford to carry a suit alone. They can force businesses that have caused broad damage to change their practices and/or pay for damages. They often result in high fees for the winning attorneys, although often attorneys do not collect a fee at the beginning of a class action suit but might charge a contingent fee (such as one-third of the final judgment), which, occasionally, can be millions of dollars. Such fees usually require court approval.

Malpractice Law

Malpractice is an act or by a professional who does not meet the standard of professional competence and results in attestable damages to his/her client or patient. Such an error may be carried out through carelessness, lack of knowledge, or deliberate wrongdoing. However, malpractice does not include the exercise of professional judgment even when the results are harmful to the client or patient. Except in cases of extremely obvious or intentional wrongs, in order to prove malpractice there must be testimony of an expert as to the acceptable standard of care applied to the specific act or conduct which is claimed to be malpractice and testimony of the expert that the professional did not meet that standard. The defendant then can produce his/her own expert to counter that testimony. In actions against attorneys it is mandatory that the plaintiff prove that the error, if any, caused damages. This means that a lawsuit, claim or negotiation the attorney was handling would have resulted in a win or better recovery except for the malpractice.

Plastic surgery malpractice is an act or by a professional who does not meet the standards of professional competence as established by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and results in attestable damages to his/her client or patient. Such an error may be carried out through carelessness, lack of knowledge, or deliberate wrongdoing.

Serious Personal Injury Law

Personal injury refers to the area of law that aimed at protecting individuals who are hurt by the action or inaction of another person or entity. A personal injury claim can be filed for injury sustained by an individual either physically or mentally, and it can sometimes include damage to property. In certain situations a person may bring a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of a loved one. Personal injury lawyers seek to win compensation for their clients.

There are two factors present in every personal injury case: liability and damages. The first involves indicating that the person or entity being charged did in fact bear legal responsibility for the injury. Damages, refers to the extent or amount of injury or loss that was supposedly experienced on account of the defendant's actions.

Tort Law

A tort is a civil wrong or wrongful act, whether intentional or accidental, from which injury occurs to another. Torts include all negligence cases as well as intentional wrongs which result in harm. Some intentional torts may also be crimes, such as assault, battery, wrongful death, fraud, conversion (a euphemism for theft) and trespass on property and form the basis for a lawsuit for damages by the injured party. Defamation, including intentionally telling harmful untruths about another-either by print or broadcast (libel) or orally (slander)-is a tort and used to be a crime as well.
