Class Actions Attorneys - Burg Simpson

Class Actions

Burg Simpson believes that class actions serve an important role in society. Class actions provide a mechanism to hold large companies responsible for wrongful conduct that might otherwise go unchecked if each individual had to litigate alone. Often class actions are the only realistic means of holding large corporate wrongdoers accountable.

Consumer Product Liability Attorneys - Burg Simpson Ohio

Consumer Product Liability

Each year, consumer products injure hundreds of thousands of people while at home, at work, or at play. While some of these injuries occur due to user error, a lot of them don’t. Under Ohio law, if you or a loved one has been injured as a result of using an unreasonably dangerous, faulty or inappropriately labeled product, you may be entitled to compensation.

Defective Drugs and Medical Devices Attorneys - Burg Simpson Ohio

Defective Drugs & Medical Devices

The products you buy at the pharmacy are intended to benefit your health. On occasion, however, the very items intended to make you feel better may, in fact, cause you serious harm. Prescription drugs may have undisclosed risks, or they may be manufactured improperly. Similarly, over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements may be harmful rather than beneficial to your health.

Daycare Injuries - Burg Simpson Ohio
