Protecting the Public
Personal injury, medical malpractice, and product liability law helps individuals recover fair compensation after they’ve been harmed by someone else’s negligence, or by a defective, dangerously designed, or inadequately labeled product. At Plevin & Gallucci, our mission is to help people secure the compensation they need to recover and rebuild after a serious injury.
We know how difficult it can be to manage physical pain, limitations, high-cost medical care, loss of income, and other trauma and disruption all at once. That’s why we work to make it as painless as possible to get the help you need after an injury or the loss of a loved one.
But we also recognize that these areas of law serve a larger purpose. Holding negligent medical providers, companies that market dangerous drugs to the public, and others who create a risk to consumers accountable can help make Ohio and the country safer for all of us and our loved ones. That’s why we’re proud to have been part of the fight against drug manufacturers and retailers who helped create and aggravate the opioid crisis in Ohio.
In this section, we provide information about issues that impact public safety, whether that means pending litigation or a product recall or information about the risks associated with developing technologies like autonomous vehicles and rental e-scooters and e-bikes. If you have been injured through someone else’s negligence, harmed by a defective product, or have lost a loved one through someone else’s fault, we invite you to learn more about how we can help protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
We offer free consultations in personal injury, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, and product liability cases.
