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. The victim of a car accident who is thinking of filing suit against another driver, the owner of the vehicle or an employer must remember that time limits apply and that they vary by state.
- Truck Accidents
Travel anywhere on a Missouri or Illinois highway and you will encounter commercial trucks. Tractor-trailers crisscross the nation with their cargo, in the process often rumbling through Missouri and Illinois. And when truckers are careless or negligent, innocent Missouri and Illinois motorists sometimes end up getting hurt.
- Motorcycle Accidents
Although the owners of Harley-Davidson, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, BMW and Victory motorcycles may disagree when it comes to choosing the best bike, they can agree on at least one thing: Inattentive or aggressive motorists pose a safety hazard to motorcyclists. And for the motorcycle rider, the stakes are high.
- 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.
- Tanning Bed and Melanoma
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with melanoma and have a history of tanning bed exposure, you may qualify to file a lawsuit. You may be able to claim compensation for your injuries, medical bills, cost of treatments, and lost wages as a result. Contact the St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyers at the Zevan and Davidson Law Firm if you or somebody you know has been harmed as a result of exposure to tanning beds.
- 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.
- Electrocution Accident
An electrical injury can be very devastating. This kind of injury occurs to the skin or internal organs when a person comes into direct contact with an electrical current. When the human body comes in contact with an electrical current, the electricity passes through the body very easily.
- 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

Many clients have hired and continue to hire Zevan and Davidson after being referred by outside attorneys who trust our approach.

- 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.
- Failure to Diagnose
A physicianís failure to diagnose an illness or condition may, under certain conditions, constitute medical negligence. Thatís because physicians have a duty to recognize the signs and symptoms of certain diseases. Some of the most common mistakes leading to failure to diagnose include: Misinterpretation of x-rays; Not listening to patients as they describe symptoms; Failing to order important and necessary tests; Misinterpreting symptoms; Misinterpreting lab results.
- Surgical Error
Some of the most common avoidable surgical errors are: Performing surgery on the wrong site or wrong area of the body ó for example, amputating the wrong foot or hand; Performing the wrong surgical procedure; Leaving a surgical instrument, such as a sponge, retractor or towel, inside the body; Performing a surgery that is not related to the patientís diagnosis; Performing surgery on the wrong patient; Making an avoidable mistake during surgery or failing to catch or correct an avoidable error.
- 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.
