About This Firm

About This Firm
James McKiernan Lawyers is a personal injury law firm dedicated to providing high quality, aggressive legal representation to victims of personal injury. Our firm handles many different types of personal injury cases, most of which are covered in detail on this website.

Among the many kind of cases we handle are claims for:

People injured by the prescription diet drug Fen-Phen and other dangerous defective and unsafe drugs, medical devices and consumer products. These are called product liability claims and they include the latest drug litigation over Baycol, found to case serious injury and death due to a muscle condition called rhabdomyolysis; the diabetes drug Rezulin, which has been withdrawn from the market after being found to cause severe live damage, liver failure and death; as well as Propulsid, which is a heartburn medication withdrawn from the market after being linked to hundreds of heart rhythm abnormalities and many deaths. These medical product liability claims also include Sulzer hip defective implant claims.

People suffering from hemorrhagic stroke caused by the chemical additive Phenylpropanolamine or PPA, a common ingredient in over the counter weight loss drugs as well as cold and cough medications.

Babies who suffer birth injuries, brain damage or cerebral palsy due to birth trauma or medical malpractice

People who suffer injuries due to hospital staff negligence and medical malpractice. The claims include nursing home abuse, one of today's most troubling areas.

People injured in automobile accidents resulting from the negligence of other drivers.

People suffering from asbestos related lung disease, including asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Construction workers or other workers injured through the negligence of others.

People injured by defective tires or vehicle design, such as in the Firestone tire litigation.

An initial discussion with us about your case is free of charge or obligation, and we only charge a fee if we're successful in recovering an award for you. We will not ask you to pay a retainer fee up front, because we recognize that most people cannot afford to do so. Our fees are based on a percentage of any recovery we make for you. This is called a contingent fee agreement.

To discuss your injuries and your case with us, call us at (805) 489-4899 today.

I could not have done it without you. I felt better from the moment I called your office. I got my car repaired and all my medical bills paid. You even put extra money in my pocket when it was all said and done. Thank You!

I retained James McKiernan through the recommendation of a friend who had been a client in the past and had a very professional experience. I was rear-ended and trying to deal with the other parties insurance company, it was a nightmare and was getting nowhere. Mr. McKiernan contacted the ins. co and one by one all of my needs were met and my claim was completed, allowing me to put this accident behind me. He is articulate and very aggressive, I would definitely recommend him.
