The Cheek Law Firm is currently accepting cases for various pharmaceutical and defective device-related injuries, as well as Volkswagen emissions fraud cases.
If you or someone you know has a 2009-2015 diesel Volkswagen or Audi with a “defeat device,” you should contact us immediately for a free consultation.
In September 2015, the EPA announced that millions of Volkswagen and Audi diesel vehicles had an illegal device to lower results for emissions tests. The “defeat device” sensed when the vehicle was being tested and reduced emissions, but when not tested, the vehicles emit up to 40 times the acceptable levels of nitrogen oxide.
Volkswagen owners have been harmed in many ways. Their diesel cars now have lower resale value. New software could lower performance. Retrofitting the engine could cost thousands of dollars. If you decide to retain us as your legal counsel, we may be able to seek compensation for your economic losses, non-economic losses, lost resale value of your car, and more.
The vehicles affected by the “defeat device” for emissions fraud are the following:
The Cheek Law affirm also covers product liability cases that deal with asbestos. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury related to asbestos, then the manufacturer of the product with asbestos could be liable for the injury.
There are many different products that could have asbestos in them. Here is a brief list:
In the past, asbestos was commonly used in construction and in other industries. So the list of products it could be in goes on and on.
Asbestos has been connected with asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. All of these diseases are very serious and can result in death. In fact, between 1999 and 2013, 3,886 people died from these three asbestos-related illnesses in Louisiana. Even if these illnesses are not fatal or do not cause death right away, they can still cause immense suffering and reduce quality of life.
Oil drilling, refining, and power generation are industrial activities that are very common in Louisiana. All three of these industrial areas are known to have significant asbestos exposures and risks. So if you have worked in any of these areas, you may be at risk for an asbestos related illness.
Here at the Cheek Law Firm, we specialize in these types of lawsuits. We can begin working your case immediately following a free consultation. No one deserves to suffer an asbestos-related illness, and we will make sure you get the justice you deserve. With our legal strategy and expertise, we have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our clients. If you hire us, we will put the same successful formula to work for you.
