The Onder Law Firm: Family and Child Safety Attorneys
Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about family and childsafety defective products and dangerous drug lawsuits. Almost every case is unique in some regard and has its own set of special circumstances, so please contact us to speak with one of family and child safety attorneys. We pride ourselves on maintaining the best possible communication with our clients and making sure sure all of your questions are answered during every step of the legal process.
Does it cost anything for you to review my case?
We will always listen to your circumstances and give you our analysis of your case without any cost or further obligation.
How much will you charge to handle my case?
We handle all cases on a contingency basis, meaning there are never any legal fees or other charges unless we are able to collect for you. The percentage will vary depending upon the details of your case.
Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
The majority of our drug cases are handled as a MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue, do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
