If you or your business has exclusive rights to a trademark and that trademark is used in some way by an unauthorized user, a claim for Trademark Infringement may be the appropriate remedy. In order to prove infringement, a plaintiff must first show that it has developed a protectable trademark right in a trademark. The plaintiff must then show that the defendant is using a confusingly similar mark in such a way that it creates a likelihood of confusion, mistake and/or deception with the consuming public. If you believe your trademark is illegally being utilized, contact our office to further discuss your legal options.
- CATASTROPHIC INJURY
Injuries that result from the failure of others to act reasonably, as an ordinary person would be or from intentional acts of another gives rise to a claim for negligence. Personal injury claims can include both physical and/or emotional injury and may be catastrophic in proportion.
- CLASS ACTION
When a class of people are injured, misled or damaged by the conduct of a wrongdoer, the power and strength in their numbers may justify an action brought by the group that have been injured as a whole or class of individuals rather than a single claim. These are claims that otherwise would not be economically viable as an individual action brought by an individual claimant.
Whether the loss or injury arises from fraud or misrepresentation by a corporation about their product, and its benefits or their profitability for the purposes of increasing stock price, a group of consumers that have received improper charges on their billing statements or credit cards, or a group of people exposed to and injured by a dangerous chemical in their neighborhood, the position of the class or group of individuals may enhance the position of any one individual warranting a class action.
