Defective Medical Devices and Drugs
When a medical product, device, or medication has a manufacturer or design defect, then medical product liability exists. This type of liability can also be present when a manufacturer fails to adequately warn consumers about the dangers of a product or makes representations about the device’s capabilities which are false.
Some of the most common dangerous and defective medical devices include pelvic vaginal mesh, implants, metal hip replacements, defribrillators, dual chamber implantable pulse generators (IPGs), proton pump inhibitors, and IVC blood clot filters. Pharmaceutical defective products include medications that have been recalled or found to be defective such as Losartan, Lisinopril, Zantac/Ranitidine, Valsartan, Elmiron, and others.
It is also possible to experience life threatening side effects and even death from medical products that may or may not be later recalled. Attorney Ken Hairston is experienced at representing individuals in these types of cases and getting them the compensation they deserve.
If you are facing issues with your employer including unfair wage and hour practices (overtime); hiring or workplace discrimination on the basis of age, race, nationality, gender, religion, or disability; harassment or a hostile work environment; violations of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); or retaliation, attorney Ken Hairston is here to fight for you.
Dealing with problems at work or with your employer can cause you not only financial stress but stress that can affect your health and home life. Your employer has a duty to treat you fairly just like you have a duty to complete your job. Attorney Ken Hairston is passionate about solving problems and making an impact for workers with employment-related issues.
Estate & Probate
Whether it is preparing a last will and testament, advance medical directive, power of attorney or filing or contesting a will in Probate Court, protecting and planning for your family is important at every stage of life.
Estate and probate issues can be overwhelming, whether you are planning for the future but especially when you are dealing with the loss of a family member. Preparing these instruments before a death occurs is important, but it is also crucial to have the help of an experienced estate attorney when a family member passes. Attorney Ken Hairston can assist you with ensuring your family is taken care of after you're gone.
As a consumer, you have the right to be protected against harm caused by defective products such as seatbelts, air bags, tires, GM ignition switches, e-cigarettes, JUUL, earplugs, talcum powder, Roundup, drugs or medical devices, motorcycles, ATVs, boats, household equipment or appliances, and many others. If you have sustained harm or injury from a defective product, you may have a right to compensation and damages either from the manufacturer or retailer.
Product liability claims can stem from things such as design or manufacturing defects, false advertising or marketing, or warning labels. Attorney Ken Hairston will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve from lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
When you need to file an insurance claim, whether it is homeowners, health, or life insurance, your insurance company is required to act in "good faith" and cannot unreasonably delay payment or wrongfully deny your claim.
Insurance companies do not always play by the rules. In fact, it is common for them to deny a claim initially knowing that many people will not pursue it further even though their insurance claim was perfectly valid. When your claim has been wrongfully denied or the insurance company has unreasonably delayed payment of your claim, this is called “bad faith." Attorney Ken Hairston is experienced representing individuals with bad faith insurance claims, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve.
If you have been injured on-the-job, your injuries are most likely covered by workers' compensation. Obtaining the benefits and compensation you deserve after filing a workers' compensation claim can be difficult.
Whether it is a minor injury such as a cut or a fracture or a more serious injury such as an amputation, head injury, or paralysis, an on-the-job injury can affect not only your ability to work and provide for your family but can cause long-lasting impact on your health and well being. You need the help of an experienced workers' compensation attorney like Ken Hairston to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
