Defective Product Lawsuits in D.C. and Virginia

When any type of consumer product reaches the masses, quality control in the design or manufacturing process may be lacking. Oftentimes, the reform of a potentially dangerous product requires the feedback of those who have been affected by it.

Lead Paint Lawsuits in DC, Maryland and Virginia

If your son or daughter has been tested and shows a high level of lead in their system, it could be due to poor building maintenance. Attorney Leonard Dooren of Patrick Malone and Associates, P.C. explains how lead poisoning can happen to small children, referring to just one of many examples of lead poisoning cases the firm has handled in the past.

Especially as lead poisoning is wholly preventable, it can be particularly frustrating for the parents of afflicted children, and those responsible for the resulting illness should be held accountable. Although lead has been banned from being used in paint since the 1970ís, older homes may still contain elements that are toxic to young children, who are naturally attracted to the color and taste of paint chips. Talk to your landlord about the property, and find out if anyone else in the building has experienced a similar problem. Because the lead removal can be a difficult task to handle, some landlords neglect or put off their duties, thus endangering their tenantsí health and the lives of young children. If you feel your living environment is the cause of your childís illness, talk to an experienced attorney about your options regarding legal action.

Legal Case Study: A Medical Malpractice Victory for Patients

Attorney Patrick Malone recalls the case of Sharon, a 40-year-old woman who suffered from bouts of stumbling and falling. She saw a neurologist who, unfortunately, did not take her concerns seriously; not long after, she had an MRI scan, the results of which were incorrectly interpreted. Nobody noticed it then, but she was experiencing warning signs that ultimately led to a stroke, one that in hindsight seems easily preventable had the proper diagnosis and medicine been available.

Upon investigation and trial of the case, portions of which took place in both Maryland and Washington, D.C., Sharon was awarded compensation for the lack of attention paid by the doctors. Just as importantly, the case exposed her to other, more competent medical professionals who were willing to help. Patrick Malone takes from the experience the reminder to not give up, no matter how desperate or difficult the situation may seem. There is always a better option, and always someone willing to see you through tough times.

Legal Case Study: A Medical Malpractice Victory for Skin Cancer Patients

Richard Semsker was a skilled lawyer with a loving wife and twin daughters on the verge of adulthood. By the time attorney Patrick Malone was able to meet him, Mr. Semsker was gravely ill, falling prey to the melanoma that had gone undiagnosed by his doctors. The cancer had moved up from a small mole on his back and began to invade his brain. Had the mole been removed two years sooner, he would have had a 95% chance of survival.

Although nothing can compensate for the loss of a human life, the bereaved Semsker family sought justice and found it in court. The untimely death of Richard Semsker will hopefully serve to remind physicians of the importance of being thorough, and the influence their smallest actions can have over the lives they work to save.

Winning Car Accident Lawsuits in Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland

If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, itís not always easy to estimate exactly how long true recovery will take, or how much money, time and energy it could end up costing.

Thatís where Patrick Malone & Associatesí Leonard Dooren comes in. In this video, he explains his role in the recovery process, and the ways in which a lawyer can help a car accident victim as they begin to reconstruct their life. While an insurance company is looking out for their money, an attorney is looking out for you and your rights.

Legal Case Study: Winning a Birth Injury Lawsuit in Washington, DC

Occasionally during the birthing process, the physical stresses on the baby may cause serious injuries. It is estimated that between two and seven babies out of 1,000 will become injured during delivery. Birth injury can occur because of the baby's size or the position of the baby during labor and delivery. Babies with a birthweight over about 4,000 grams (8 pounds, 13 ounces) are at higher risk, as are babies born before 37 weeks of pregnancy. For some pregnant mothers, the size and shape of the mother's pelvis prevents the baby from being safely born vaginally, and a caesarean section operation is required. In other children, difficult or prolonged labor or childbirth can cause birth injuries. Your doctor or midwife should be aware of all of these risks and should take reasonable precautions to avoid complications during the birthing process.
