WRONGFUL DEATH

Suffering the loss of a loved one who dies unnecessarily due to the carelessness of another is a devastating experience. We understand the delicate balancing act that is necessary to compassionately represent grieving families while aggressively representing their interests.

A wrongful death lawsuit alleges that the decedent’s death was in whole or in part the result of liability on the part of the defendant(s). Usually the victim’s surviving spouse, children or dependents are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the defendant’s conduct.

Damages that may be recoverable in a wrongful death claim include:

  • Immediate medical expenses associates with the death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of victim’s anticipated future earnings until the time of retirement or death
  • Loss of benefits cause by the victim’s death (retirement, medical, dental, life insurance, etc.)
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of care or companionship to the survivors; and
  • General damages

PRODUCT LIABILITY

Product liability refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. Responsibility for a product defect that causes injury lies with all sellers of the product who are in the distribution chain.

The law requires that a product meet the ordinary expectations of the consumer. When a product has an unexpected defect or danger, the product cannot be said to meet those ordinary expectations. Defects that can

Product liability actions are often quite complex, and require the assistance and testimony of experts. There are several theories under which a Plaintiff might bring a claim, and several defenses in which that claim might be challenged or defeated. Bregman & Loman, P.C. has the skill and resources to effectively and aggressively pursue defective products claims.

CIVIL RIGHTS

Bregman & Loman, P.C. represents people whose constitutional and civil liberties have been violated, and have filed suits against both government and private parties for people who have discrimination claims. Such claims include suits brought by victims of sexual harassment, violation of constitutional rights, employment discrimination, police misconduct, rights to freedom of religion, and denial of equal protection under the law.

In each case, we attempt to resolve the matters with a maximum settlement for each client. Several settlements have been reached against municipalities and organizations that have violated the civil rights of clients, and matters that have not settled have been pursued through trial. When fundamental human rights and freedoms are at issue, our attorneys at Bregman & Loman, P.C. have the experience to address the harm.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical malpractice or medical negligence is when injury or death occurs as a direct result of the failure of a physician or other health care provider (hospital, nurse, obstetrician, nursing home, pharmacist, anesthesiologist etc.) to properly treat a medical condition. The injury or death caused by the negligence may be a new condition or an aggravated injury to the patient. A doctor cannot be held responsible if the underlying medical problem was the cause of the death or injury.

Determining if you have a potential case for medical negligence or malpractice is difficult, at best. One sign that you may have a potential case would be an unexpected or very different result from a surgery or medical treatment. Also death or severe injury that occurs as a result of “routine” treatments or surgeries where the physician or doctor can give no reasonable explanation for the death or worsened condition of the patient, may give cause to consider that medical malpractice may have occurred. Bregman & Loman, P.C. is currently involved in a wrongful death lawsuit against Mylan Laboratories, a large pharmaceutical company that manufactures and distributes Fentanyl patches, on behalf of the family of a man who absorbed a fatal dose of the drug through the negligence of his physician, his pharmacy, and Mylan.

Bregman & Loman, P.C. takes pride in assisting its clients who have suffered injury due to the negligence of health care professionals to obtain the best results possible. Medical malpractice cases are typically complex, expensive and difficult cases to litigate. Bregman & Loman, P.C. has the experience and resources necessary to take these cases to a successful resolution.
