CLASS ACTION

THE STRENGTH OF MANY TO RIGHT A WRONG

A class gives an average consumer the ability and strength to fight the world’s largest banks, insurance companies and corporations.  Bringing together hundreds or even thousands of victims’ claims against the wrongdoer will make them take notice.  Class action litigation may be the only way for an average consumer to seek redress for fraud, discrimination, breach of contract of other violations of the law.

BENEFITS OF A CLASS ACTION

The class action promotes two principal goals.  It provides a useful mechanism for prosecuting the claims of many consumers whose money damages added together are significant, but which, individually, may not be large enough to justify the expense of individual lawsuits.

We are experienced in handling the following types of complex cases:

  • Insurance company’s overcharges or deceptively billing for unwanted insurance coverages.
  • Banks unlawfully charging above market rates for Forced Place Insurance.
  • Utilities, Phone Companies & EMC’s overcharges
  • Purchasers of a company’s stock or securities are injured because the company made fraudulent representations about its products, business prospects or financial and regulatory filings.
  • Toxic Exposure due to illegal dumping of chemicals


WILLS & ESTATE PLANNING LAWYERS IN MACON, WOODSTOCK, AND MCDONOUGH, GA

WILLS

Planning for your family’s future after your death can seem to be a daunting and expensive task but the costs of putting off making hard decisions early can be even more expensive.  A number of potential problems can arise from not having a will to direct the division of your property after death.  From creating arguments among family members to property being divided in a way that is contrary to your wishes, not having a will to direct the distribution of your assets can be a costly mistake. From simple wills to more complex estate plans for parents with children, our knowledgeable and experienced attorneys can help you bring order to your plans for the future and give you certainty that your wishes for your property are followed.

ESTATES

After the death of a loved one, the process of carrying out a loved one’s final wishes while in the midst of grief can be confusing, time consuming and costly.  In order to insure that the loved one’s final wishes are carried out and their property is legally transferred, an estate will need to be set up. Failing to create an estate for a loved one who has passed can create problems with deeds to land and the title to personal property such as vehicles that will be expensive to fix years down the road.  Whether your loved one died with or without a will, our attorneys can help make sure that your loved one’s wishes are carried out and that their property is legally transferred to prevent costly future problems.


NURSING HOME MALPRACTICE & NEGLIGENCE ISSUES

When you help an elderly family member transition to nursing home or in-home care, you expect your loved one to be treated respectfully and compassionately. Unfortunately, all too often, caregivers do not live up to their duties, and even though nursing homes are required to abide by certain standards, they may still engage in activities that are considered illegal.

PROTECT YOUR LOVED ONE
If the level of care provided by a nursing home or caregiver does not adhere to the law, you or your family member may have grounds to take legal action to put an end to any physical, emotional, sexual activity, or financial elder abuse. If you or your loved one is being neglected or ill-treated at an elderly facility, now is the right time to discuss your case with a lawyer. Lober & Dobson, LLC can help you investigate your suspicions and determine whether a nursing home or its staff has acted improperly.

If it turns out that your elderly loved one has been abused or neglected, Lober & Dobson, LLC will advise you of your legal options so that you can put an end to the maltreatment. In some cases, this may mean speaking within the nursing home management to stop the cycle of abuse. In more serious cases, you may be advised to file a personal injury action to hold the nursing home accountable for its actions or lack thereof. We know that you expect your elderly loved one to be treated with kindness, care and dignity. You can rest assured that Lober & Dobson, LLC will work to help you achieve that goal and protect your loved one’s rights. Call today to schedule a consultation.


DISCRIMINATION LAW

A variety of state and federal laws prohibit discrimination on various grounds, including age, sex, race, religion, disability and national origin. These laws prohibit employment discrimination, housing discrimination, discrimination by educational institutions and discrimination in the provision of public accommodations. If you believe that your civil rights have been violated by discriminatory actions, you should consult with a discrimination law attorney.

HERE TO HELP
We can provide you with the guidance you need to take appropriate legal measures. Sometimes, that means filing a discrimination charge with an administrative agency. In other cases, you may be able to file a discrimination lawsuit. If you prevail, you may be able to recover monetary damages. You may be entitled to other remedies as well, such as reinstatement if you were fired for discriminatory reasons, or a promotion that your employer denied you based on discriminatory grounds.

To learn more about your options, call to set up an initial consultation. Remember, under the law, you are entitled to fair and equal treatment. If you believe that you’ve been the victim of discrimination, contact the professionals at Lober & Dobson, LLC today.

DANGEROUS DRUG & MEDICAL DEVICES

Drugs with deadly side effects often make it to the market because their potential dangers were not anticipated during clinical trials. These drugs are classified as defective drugs. Defective drugs are drugs that have been identified by the FDA as having dangerous side effects that are deemed to outweigh whatever benefits they may have. Mr. Wm. Gregory Dobson has recently successfully settled claims for his clients involved in the Reglan, Vioxx, and Prempro litigation. He is currently accepting clients regarding to:

  • Depuy Hip Implants
  • Zimmer NexGen MIS Knee Implant
  • Sulzer Hip & Knee Implants
  • Encore Knee Implant
  • Gardisil Vaccine
  • Fosamax
  • Fentanyl Pain Patch
  • Yasmin/Yaz
  • Avandia
  • Trasylol
  • Seroquel

Some side effects may indicate a drug is defective. These include:

  • Liver damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Heart damage
  • Pulmonary dysfunction
  • Death
  • Increased risk of stroke or heart attack

When the side effects of an FDA approved drug outweighs its benefits, the FDA issues a drug recall.
In addition to recalling drugs, the FDA monitors drugs currently on the market and, if needed, makes changes to labeling information (e.g., indications, side effects, and warnings). The FDA also receives and considers petitions from consumer advisory groups.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective drug, you are encouraged to contact our firm for a case evaluation.
