Class Action Lawsuits and Anchor Law Firm
It has been quite a while since I’ve written an article here on an anchor law firm class action lawsuit, but I feel it is still of some importance to discuss what this class action lawsuit is all about. In fact, the class action lawsuit is based upon the same legal theories as our other cases. So without further ado, let’s get into the story of this class action lawsuit.
Two lawsuits were filed against defendants who happened to be two doctors at the same time.
In both of these cases, there were grossly negligent acts on the part of one of the defendants. A medical malpractice suit was subsequently filed against the second defendant, and it was alleged that he failed to provide adequately for the plaintiff, and in addition, he failed to provide any kind of training to the staff that was available.
At the center of these lawsuits was Dr. David Slate. Dr. Slate is a member of the board of directors of the Law Offices of David Slate, P.C., and is a practicing attorney.
He had been a practicing medical doctor for over thirty years before the incident that brought him into this spotlight. According to the complaint filed against him, Slate failed to make any kind of training to his staff in relation to the dangers of surgeries, and he did not have procedures in place that would protect them from these risks. He also did not instruct his surgeons or other employees in the proper procedures for surgeries and did not ensure that these procedures were followed correctly.
This class action lawsuit was filed against Dr. Slate and several other physicians who are part of the Law Offices of David Slate, P.C. Slate, according to the complaint, “engaged in a conspiracy with others to subject plaintiffs to needless suffering.” According to the complaint, this conduct deprived the plaintiffs of their right to seek compensation for their injuries. The defendants named in the complaint include Slate, billing personnel from Law Firm Associates, and Dr. Oz. Dr. Oz is an associate of the law firm, and is the author of the book “The Shockingly Simple Secrets of Super-Credit,” as well as the movie “The Secret”.
This class action lawsuit involves a case filed by plaintiff’s with the Western District of Texas and is overseen by the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.
According to the complaint, plaintiff’s suffered injuries at a surgery conducted by Dr. Slate. Slate failed to appropriately treat what he thought was a spasm in plaintiff’s leg, and instead gave her pain killers which made her bleed out even more. Slate was supposedly unaware of this bleeding that was occurring. He also failed to examine what was causing the spasm prior to giving plaintiff drugs that would have stopped the bleeding.
Plaintiffs’ claim that this went on for over a year, and that defendant did nothing about it despite numerous complaints.
This case was eventually settled out of court, but with class-action litigation, plaintiff’s will be able to get their attorney fees, as well as other damages that could be awarded. The defendant can avoid going through a lengthy litigation process by settling out of court. There are usually two sides to every lawsuit, and sometimes only one side is willing to settle out of court. Either way, defendants need to hire an attorney who has experience dealing with these kinds of cases.
Anchor law firms have handled many similar cases, and they are familiar with how the process works.
They are also familiar with the paperwork involved in such lawsuits, and how class action lawsuits work. Plaintiffs need not worry about the long process required by such lawsuits, since an anchor law firm will handle the case for them. If the defendant refuses to pay for medical bills, or if there are other ways that he could have rectified the situation, then plaintiffs should get a lawyer from an anchor law firm. These lawyers will do everything in their power to make sure that they get their money – no matter what. (The defendant’s insurance premiums will go down, the defendant will have to shoulder liability costs, and so on.)
Plaintiffs in this case were all given a small amount of money, which they are required to hand over to the defendant within a few months. The entire settlement amount is calculated beforehand, and it will be split between all of the plaintiffs. To give itself time to get its bearings, the defendant will ask the court to allow a class-action lawsuit to be filed against him. If the judge agrees, then the case will proceed as scheduled.
