Spanning the range of legal matters in Indiana
Lee Cossell & Crowley, LLP regularly helps clients in Indianapolis and statewide in all of the following areas:
Personal Injury – When you have been injured because of another’s negligence or misconduct, it’s only fair that the responsible party compensate you for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages. Unfortunately, the lawyers and adjustors hired by the insurance company do all they can to avoid liability or pay as little as possible. At Lee Cossell & Crowley, LLP, we thoroughly investigate the facts of the accident and negotiate a settlement that reflects the true value of your claim. If the other side won’t settle, we are fully prepared to take your case all the way to trial to see that you get the compensation you need and deserve. We handle the full range of personal injury in Indiana, including auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, premises liability (slip and fall), defective products, boating accidents and wrongful death.
Medical Malpractice – When we are ill, our lives are in the hands of the doctors, nurses and hospitals who are supposed to have the education, skill and training to take care of us. When health care professionals fall below the acceptable standard of practice through negligence or incompetence, the attorneys at Lee Cossell & Crowley, LLP navigate the complex field of medical negligence to hold the responsible parties accountable to those they have harmed. Our comprehensive medical negligence practice includes birth injuries, morcellator injuries, dental malpractice and hospital malpractice.
Social Security Disability – You work all your life and pay into social security with every dollar you earn, expecting the government to come through with benefits in the event you become disabled from working. Yet the vast majority of applications for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are rejected. We know the system and can help you prepare your application for the best chance of success, or fight your denial through every level of administrative hearing and appeal as needed. If you can no longer work, contact our office to learn about your eligibility for SSD. Our practice also includes obtaining social security benefits for widows and widowers, and for disabled adult children.
Dangerous Drugs – Drug companies make billions by pushing the latest blockbuster drugs to the American consumer. Sometimes their tactics involve skipping important safety testing and review by the government, or even hiding or falsifying medical study data. Other unsafe and illegal practices include marketing medications for off-label uses that may seem effective, but have not been tested for safety or unwanted side effects. Our attorneys aren’t afraid to take on the big drug companies to protect consumers. We fight to get compensation for injured victims and force the pharmaceutical company to admit wrongdoing and change its unsafe or unethical practices.
Defective Medical Devices – Every year the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalls dozens of defective medical devices, from hip implants and knee replacements to blood clot filters and computerized surgical tools. Device makers have been known to avoid FDA scrutiny by falsely claiming their product is similar to another already on the market, or misclassifying their product as a low-risk, Class I device. We understand the harm that can occur when product makers put their profits ahead of the public they serve, and we don’t let them get away with it.
Business Law – Our experienced business lawyers help negotiate, draft and review commercial transactions, real estate deals, employment agreements and more to make sure your rights are protected and that your business goals and objectives are met. Additionally, our experienced courtroom litigators work to resolve any disputes efficiently and effectively, including contract disputes, business torts, partnership and corporate matters, and more.
Civil Rights – When police, prison guards, prosecutors or government officials abuse their power and oppress the people, we take swift action to remedy any deprivation of rights under state or federal laws or the constitution, including taking cases to the EEOC, ICRC, and state and federal courts.
Civil Litigation – Our skilled and experienced courtroom lawyers are here to help with any civil matter. Not all disputes require formal legal intervention to resolve, but sometimes litigation is the fastest, best or only way to resolve a dispute. In those situations, you want experienced, forceful advocates on your side who will protect your rights and promote your best interests at every turn.
Other Matters – Our comprehensive legal practice extends to helping individuals and families in Indianapolis with the myriad of legal issues they may face throughout their lives, including in the areas of family law, probate, insurance subrogation, criminal defense and OVWI, and workers’ compensation.
