Product liability cases are very challenging, time consuming, and expensive. The Rex Carr Law Firm has the experience and resources to successfully pursue them. Product liability cases usually involve serious personal injuries or death caused by a product that has failed or malfunctioned. The failure may have been caused by a defect in the product's design or in the product's manufacture. Some examples of product liability cases include where injury is caused because of the defective design of: an automobile (such as a vehicle rollover) or its components like a seat belt or brakes; a piece of machinery like a power press or construction equipment; or a medical device like a heart monitor.

To succeed in these cases, a law firm must be able to fight some of the biggest corporations in the world like General Motors and Ford Motor Company. A law firm handling these cases must also retain engineers, scientists, reconstructionists, and other experts to testify. Many times the appropriate experts are located all over the country. Perhaps the most challenging task in product liability cases is simplifying the science and a roomful of documents so that a jury can understand them at trial.The attorneys of The Rex Carr Law Firm have been successfully doing this in product liability cases for years.

In1999, the National Academy of Sciences concluded that 44,000 to 98,000 people die as a result of avoidable medical mistakes and negligence each year. (This does not include those severely injured and disabled). People of all ages, from newborn children to the elderly, may be severely harmed by medical negligence. Like the other cases The Rex Carr Law Firm handles, medical malpractice cases are very challenging. Unlike most other types of cases, however, medical malpractice cases have an additional hurdle: juries in malpractice cases often begin trial believing that the doctor, nurse or other medical provider made no mistakes and a verdict for the patient will result in physicians leaving the community. An attorney bringing a malpractice case must overcome these hurdles to be successful. The attorney usually must retain medical experts and be able to present complex medical concepts to the jury in an easily understood manner.

Placing a loved one in a nursing home is one of the most difficult decisions a family makes. Usually the loved one's medical condition has left the family no choice but to admit him or her to the home. Families trust that the nursing homes will provide the best care to their helpless loved ones. Unfortunately, that trust is often violated because of corporate nursing home owners putting profits over their patients. The neglect or abuse may be in the form of physical assaults on nursing home residents. It may appear in the form of a resident being permitted to wander from the home and be injured. It may also be evidenced by residents being permitted to fall and be gravely injured. Neglect may also manifest itself in less obvious but painful infections, malnutrition, dehydration, and pressure sores.

They also want people to think nursing home residents cannot feel pain or their pain and conditions are not deserving of fair and adequate compensation.

The police and other law enforcement departments are some of the most valued, important , and trusted elements of our society. Law enforcement agencies are also very powerful and their agents are often armed. They have the support of the near limitless resources of the federal, state or local governments. Unfortunately, however, some law enforcement officers violate this trust and abuse their power. This can sometimes result in serious injury or death. Lawsuits brought for such abuses are often civil rights cases. These cases can involve difficult federal law issues. Many times these lawsuits are filed in federal court where it is very important that the attorneys know the procedural rules. An additional hurdle in these cases is that juries often give the benefit of the doubt to the police officers.

Class action cases have been greatly criticized by the media and politicians. Class actions, however, can serve an important role in preventing big business from defrauding the public. Corporations (like banks and mortgage, insurance, and credit card companies) sometimes engage in conduct which defrauds individuals. Many times when this occurs the amount of money defrauded from a single person may not be very much. However, when the corporations engage in wide-spread conduct of this sort, thousands of people may be defrauded. This can result in the corporations making millions of dollars from their dishonest conduct. If a single defrauded person or a small group of people file suit on their own behalf, the amounts they can recover are so small that their attorneys' fees, time, and expenses paid to pursue the case will be far more than the court could award if they won. The corporations have tremendous financial, legal, and other resources. These resources are used to vigorously defend these cases whether it is a single consumer bringing it or many more. In these situations, the ability to file a class action lawsuit, where thousands of similar individuals are represented in a single case, are very important to protecting consumers' rights. The amounts that can be recovered in class actions are significant enough to scare corporations into stopping their fraudulent conduct.
