Areas of Law Description

Zevan and Davidson Law Firm, LLC serves clients in the following areas of practice:

- Personal Injury

Personal injury law is a broad area. The term is generally associated with cases in which a person has been hurt as a result of the carelessness, recklessness, negligence or intentional act of another. Personal injury lawsuits encompass a wide variety of conduct by individuals, manufacturers and property owners.

- Gas Explosion

Injuries sustained in flammable gas explosions may be extremely serious. Burns to the face and body may be terribly painful, often take a long time to heal and may be permanently disfiguring. Flying debris may inflict additional wounds. The victim of a flammable gas explosion or family members who have lost a loved one in an explosion may wonder how they will cover medical bills, future treatment costs and lost wages.

- Car Accidents

In Missouri and Illinois, a lawsuit may be filed when one driverís negligence has caused or contributed to a car accident. Drivers may be careless or negligent in many different ways, including: talking on a cell phone; texting; eating; excessive speed; driving too fast for weather conditions; aggressive driving; road rage; fatigue; alcohol; drugs; street racing.

- Product Liability

Product liability, sometimes referred to as products liability, is an area of law that holds manufacturers, designers and sellers of dangerous or defective products responsible for the injuries linked to their goods. Product liability law encompasses negligence, strict liability and breach of warranty.

- Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries are extremely serious. Although some people will completely recover from a spinal cord injury, many others will suffer partial or complete paralysis. According to the National Institutes of Health, about one-third of people suffering neck injuries involving the spinal cord will need assistance to breathe.

- Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury may be mild, moderate, severe or fatal. Traumatic brain injury survivors may suffer temporary or permanent changes that affect thought, sensation, language or emotion. TBI victims may also be at greater risk for epilepsy, Parkinsonís disease, Alzheimerís disease and other brain disorders.

- Slip and Fall

Generally business owners must keep their premises reasonably safe for customers, who are known as invitees under the law. Business owners have a duty to inspect their premises for slip and fall hazards and fix any hazards they find or provide proper warning.

- Nursing Home Abuse

Though abuse of the elderly often happens in the home, nursing homes have been closed because of abuse. Some doctors and medical professionals engage in the unethical practices of overcharging their patients or charging but not providing any healthcare at all.

- Wrongful Death

A wrongful death lawsuit is a claim against a person, or persons, who can be held liable for a death. It is a legal term for a case where the negligence or recklessness of another leads to a fatality. The responsible party may be liable under the wrongful death claim for any financial losses that result from the death.

- Medical Malpractice

Our firm has a well-earned reputation for taking on and winning complicated medical malpractice cases. Many clients have hired and continue to hire Zevan and Davidson after being referred by outside attorneys who trust our approach. If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical negligence, talk to the St. Louis medical malpractice lawyers at Zevan and Davidson.

- Birth Injury

The arrival of a new baby is an exciting and much-anticipated event for parents and families. Though most infants are delivered without incident, sometimes mistakes are made by obstetricians, nurses and other healthcare professionals. When that happens, a perfectly healthy infant may suffer a devastating birth injury that alters the course of his or her life.

- Medical Negligence

Advances in the field of prescription drugs over the past several decades have helped cure disease and extend lives. However, medications can also be toxic and even deadly when given to the wrong person or in the wrong dosage. This is why only healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses and pharmacists are allowed to prescribe, administer or sell prescription drugs.

- Vaginal Mesh Complications

Surgically-implanted devices used to alleviate or repair certain conditions must meet FDA approval prior to use. However, many unsafe devices are being rushed through the FDA approval process when manufacturers pay the FDA for quick approvals. This can lead to injury or death when the devices fail.

- Zoloft Birth Defect

Pregnant women are often under tremendous physical, hormonal, and emotional pressure during their pregnancies. Doctors will often prescribe medicines to help relieve some of these symptoms, occasionally without an understanding of how that drug might interact with the growing baby.
