Personal Injury Cases
If you have been injured because of another party’s negligence, you are entitled to financial compensation. However, you may be facing difficulties in obtaining your rightful compensation for a number of reasons. Often, insurance companies will deny all or part of a claim. In other cases, the responsible party may be uninsured, or you may have trouble proving responsibility. Chris Olsen handles all types of personal injury cases, including auto accidents, slips and falls, wrongful death, and catastrophic injury. He will provide comprehensive counsel, taking the time to investigate the accident, understand your injury, and find out how it has affected you. He can then provide hard-hitting legal representation to secure the compensation you deserve.
Chris Olsen is passionate about protecting mistreated workers and establishing equitable working conditions in California. He is ready to provide effective legal representation in a wide range of employment and labor issues. One of his biggest areas of practice is wage and hour disputes. If you are being paid below minimum wage, have been denied overtime pay, have not been reimbursed for business expenses, or have been expected to work without pay, you may have a viable wage and hour lawsuit. In addition, Chris Olsen has handled a number of cases involving discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and whistleblower retaliation.
Class Action Lawsuits
Many times, the best way to challenge the actions of a major business is through a class action lawsuit. In these cases, a group of people who have been similarly mistreated join together to sue a common entity. This type of lawsuit gives more power to individuals, and makes it possible for those with small claims to recover their just compensation. Chris Olsen has earned a reputation for successful class action lawsuits, particularly in wage and hour disputes and consumer class action cases. In fact, he represented the plaintiffs in the landmark Hohnbaum vs. Brinker cases, which helped to improve break and meal requirements for workers in California.
Mass Tort Litigation
Similar to class action lawsuits, mass torts can be brought against manufacturers of dangerous drugs and defective products. Mass tort litigation differs from class action in that decisions handed down by one court are not legally binding on all plaintiffs, and each individual claim is treated separately.
Chris Olsen is currently investigating claims in several pharmaceutical injury cases: The Xarelto® lawsuit is looking into the connection between the medication and uncontrolled bleeding events. We are also analyzing evidence concerning the use of Zofran and the risk of birth defects in children. Invokana® is a commonly prescribed diabetes medication that may lead to ketoacidosis, a condition in which acid begins to accumulate in the bloodstream.
We are also looking into claims involving defective medical devices. Many patients have experienced complications after having an IVC Filter surgically implanted to protect against blood clots migrating to the heart. Additionally, we are looking into the higher incidence of patients developing deep joint infections after having a surgical procedure in which a Bair Hugger warming blanket was used.
