Private Insurance Disability Claims

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

We may be able to help with disability claims against insurance companies when disability coverage has been purchased by you directly from an insurance company or provided to you through your employment. In situations where the insurance company has breached its duty of good faith in dealing with you and denying obviously deserved benefits, we can advise regarding remedies in excess of a claim merely for benefits. Such remedies can include punitive damages, statutory penalties, costs, interest, and attorney fees.

We are willing to consider these claims on a sliding scale contingency fee basis. The amount of the fee can be determined by the amount of the benefit claimed and the level of our involvement. We can discuss acting as escrow agent and attorney to collect benefits directly from the insurance company and then disburse to you through our trust account—even in situations where benefits have not been denied.

If you have questions or need additional information, call Law Offices of Gary Green toll free and without obligation at 1-888-442-7947 or send us an e-mail at ggreen@gGreen.com if we can help.

Class Actions

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

A class action lawsuit is nothing more than the consolidation of several related lawsuits into one. Not all lawsuits are eligible to become class actions, in fact, most cannot. However, if there are numerous plaintiffs (or possibly defendants), all with common legal issues to resolve, then a judge may allow them to join as a class. Class action plaintiffs can include consumers hurt by defective products and small businesses bringing suit against large corporations for unfair business practices, persons harmed by pharmaceuticals, persons who have lost money in the securities markets, and many other types of common losses suffered by many people.

The ideal of the class action allows a remedy en masse to those who otherwise might not be able to afford access to the courts. Currently, cases can be under either state or federal jurisdiction and claims can be large or small.

For a class action lawsuit, a named plaintiff stands in for a group of similarly situated plaintiffs injured by the same defendant or group of defendants. The need for resources and ability to keep track of the many parties and issues involved make these very complex cases to handle. Many class action suits fail because the issues presented are not clear enough.

We are willing to consider any reasonable claim you wish to present to us. If you have questions or need additional information, call Law Offices of Gary Green toll free and without obligation at 1-888-442-7947 or send us an e-mail at ggreen@gGreen.com.

Product Liability

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Law offices of Gary Green staffs legal personnel to review most cases of product liability law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause.

In the United States, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are:

  • Negligence
  • Strict liability
  • Breach of warranty
  • Various consumer protection claims.

The majority of product liability law is determined at the state level and varies widely from state to state. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements be proven to present a successful claim.

Liability claims come into play when manufacturers fail to provide a safe and secure product for consumers. So, it is important to prove that a manufacturer was negligent by failing to keep their products free of hazards.
