At The Lake Law Firm, we are committed to helping everyone attain justice. We are dedicated to helping those who are suffering or have suffered from serious injury or death caused by the negligence of another person, defective medical device, or defective product. We also represent veterans seeking disability compensation, whistleblowers, and victims of sexual abuse, among others.
Veterans of the United States military who have service-related injuries that keep them from living and working as they did before are entitled to disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Unfortunately, the VA is a bloated bureaucracy that is often resistant to giving veterans the disability benefits they have earned. Hiring a veterans disability benefits lawyer from The Lake Law Firm can streamline the process of applying for benefits and increase your chances of approval. In the case of an adverse decision, we can assist you in appealing the decision and working toward a better outcome. You fought to defend our country and our American way of life. Let a skilled and knowledgeable veterans benefits lawyer from The Lake Law Firm fight for you.
Unfortunately, many corporations in the United States put profits above people. Over and over again, we hear stories of unsafe products, harmful medications, defective machinery, and unsanitary manufacturing procedures that end up endangering and often harming innocent consumers. One of the few ways that these violations come to light is through the reports of whistleblowers. Whsitleblowers risk their livelihoods, their reputations, and sometimes even their personal safety to make others in our society safer. At The Lake Law Firm, our whistleblower lawyers honor the risks and sacrifices of these courageous truth-tellers by protecting them and by bringing the offenders to justice.
Sexual abuse is rampant in the United States, and while there have been some advances in the way we treat victims, many are still afraid to come forward to share their stories and seek justice. These victims fear that they won’t be believed, that their names will be raked through the mud, and that their attackers will follow through on their intimidating threats. At The Lake Law Firm, we are devoted to protecting and defending victims of sexual abuse. No one should suffer in silence while their abuser walks free. The sexual abuse lawyers at The Lake Law Firm have made it our mission to assist victims of sexual abuse seeking justice. We will listen, we will believe you, and we will fight to make sure that your abusers do not escape the justice that is due.
The Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance Traumatic Injury Protection (TSGLI) program was established to provide relief to service members who have suffered a traumatic injury – whether on duty or off duty – as a result of a traumatic event. TSGLI payments range from $25,000.00 to $100,000.00, depending on the loss suffered. While TSGLI compensation is a benefit that service members with traumatic injuries have been promised, the VA is known for denying claims on a regular basis. At the Lake Law Firm, our experienced TSGLI attorneys know the ins and outs of qualifying for TSGLI payments, and we can help you with your initial application or with your appeal of an adverse decision.
One of the most notorious recent instances of a common medication causing harm to those who use it is the Zantac case. In 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced its request for manufacturers to withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine drugs, commonly known as Zantac, from the market immediately. Zantac was a popular medication used for the treatment of heartburn and other stomach issues. It was found that these drugs may have had an impurity –NDMA, a known human carcinogen–that may have increased to unacceptable levels over time if the medication was stored at higher than room temperatures, as is common in distribution. If you or a loved one took Zantac for 12 months or more and have been diagnosed with cancer, you may qualify for compensation. The Zantac lawyers at The Lake Law Firm have been leaders in this area. Our experienced attorneys handle many different types of pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, and other defective products, and Zantac is no exception. The lawyers in our firm have helped collect millions of dollars for their clients. If you or a loved one has been harmed by the regular use of Zantac, The Lake Law Firm will advocate for you and your rights.
