At Auger & Auger, we know how difficult life can suddenly become after you’re injured. Whether you’re dealing with lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering or any other number of factors, you deserve to speak with an attorney who has your back. Our attorneys have been representing clients throughout the Carolinas for over 25 years, and we’re ready to fight for your rights.
We want to make sure you’re as informed as possible about your legal rights after you’ve been injured. That’s why we’ve written three eBooks about some of the most common injuries you may suffer. These eBooks are free, and are readily available whenever you want them. We cover a different topic in each of these books: car accidents, IVC filters, and Xarelto.
There’s a good chance you or a loved one will be involved in some kind of car accident over the course of your lifetime, if you haven’t been already. Often, these car accidents result in some kind of injury. When this happens, the first course of action is to file a claim with your insurance company. But, simply expecting them to give you a fair settlement can be a bad move.
In our eBook “9 Things the Insurance Company Does Not Want You to Know about Your Car Accident Claim,” we explain the tactics these corporations use to pay out as little as possible. After all, they’re in the business of making money. Be sure to read through this book so you know your rights after a car wreck and don’t get hustled by the insurance company.
People across the country are filing claims against the maker of Roundup®. People with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and exposure to the weed killer Roundup® are looking for answers and potential compensation relating to claims that the chemical may have been linked to their illnesses through their use and exposure to Roundup®.
Our Free eBook “Only Killing Weeds? – The Case Against Roundup®: When Companies Value Profit Over People” gives the reader helpful information that will allow them to make an informed decision about potentially moving forward with a Roundup® injury claim.
IVC filters are placed in the largest artery of the body to trap blood clots before they can travel from the legs to the lungs, brain or heart. They’re designed to keep the clot in place so the blood’s natural anticoagulant properties can break it down over time, and are used when medicinal therapy isn’t an option. However, IVC filters have been shown to be highly dangerous.
If you or a loved one has had one of these devices implanted, be sure to read “Blood Trap: The Dangers of IVC Filters.” Within this eBook, we explain how these filters fail, malfunction or otherwise cause injury. In some cases, the filter simply doesn’t work. In others, the device actually makes things worse. Learn what you can do if you’ve been injured by an IVC filter.
Similar to IVC filters, Xarelto is designed to help prevent blood clots by stopping the clots from forming in the first place. In other words, it’s an anticoagulant. However, unlike similar anticoagulants such as Warfarin, Xarelto has no known antidote. As such, major bleeding events can occur, which can’t be stopped until the drug is out of a person’s system.
Our eBook “The Case Against Xarelto: When Pharmaceutical Companies Value Profit Over People” explores the history of Xarelto, including how long it’s been on the market and the long past of lawsuits against the manufacturer. If you or a loved one is taking Xarelto, we recommend reading this book to learn what your legal options are if you’ve been injured by it.
Update – We are no longer accepting Xarelto cases. The Xarelto MDL litigation that we were part of was successfully resolved in March of 2019.
If you’ve ever suffered a hernia, you know how painful they can be. Your doctor may recommend a variety of different treatment options. One such option is a surgical mesh. These devices are implanted and are intended to support the area weakened by a hernia. While they sound like a great idea at first, hernia meshes have been known to cause a variety of medical issues — some of which could even result in death.
In our eBook “Dangerous Support: The Hernia Mesh Problem,” we explore some of the most common injuries that result from these devices being implanted. In some cases, these injuries are a result of a defective mesh. In other cases, injuries are caused by the mesh being left inside the body for too long. No matter the cause, you have legal rights if you’ve been injured by a hernia mesh. This eBook can help you learn more about your options.
Reading these eBooks is a good first step toward learning what your rights are. But if you’ve been injured in a car wreck, by a defective medical device or by a dangerous drug, now is the time to take action.
