Long Term Disability

Many people purchase long term disability insurance coverage to plan for their future and any unfortunate injuries. When you are permanently disabled and have paid an insurance company for protection, the last thing you should have to do is fight to receive the coverage you are entitled. A long term disability insurance lawyer can help you fight the insurance company so that you can collect on your policy.

Defective Drugs and Products

Taking prescription drugs always carries a risk of side effects, but many Pharmaceutical companies go out of their way to hide known side effects or not warn doctors of patients of the risks.
