40 Years of Experience
Over $3 Billion Won for Our Clients
Thousands of Lives Changed
A birth injury can have devastating life-long consequences on a child and his or her family. These types of injuries can mean significant medical bills, long-term care, living adjustments and changes to your child’s future. If you suspect your child’s injury is the result of negligence or carelessness by a medical professional, our birth injury lawyers will conduct an in-depth investigation to determine if any wrongdoing occurred. Backed by decades of combined medical and legal experience, our team has recovered hundreds of millions on behalf of families who have been harmed during the birthing process.
Medical malpractice, such as hospital errors, misdiagnoses and medical errors, is the third leading cause of death in our country. The medical malpractice division of Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC works exclusively for the rights of victims of medical negligence who have suffered harm by a doctor, nurse or other medical professional. Attorneys Howard Janet, Ken Suggs and other medical legal staff have worked on medical malpractice cases across the country, which have led to multi-million dollar verdicts.
An increasing flood of reported Catholic clergy abuse and the lengths to which the Church has gone to conceal and protect child sex abusers has shocked the nation and the world. Finally, after decades of ignored allegations against clergy, changes are being made so the survivors of this abuse can speak out to seek justice. The nationally recognized lawyers at Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC have helped thousands of survivors of sexual assault—many of them minors—get the justice they deserve.
The Sexual Abuse Division at Janet, Janet & Suggs has spent decades representing survivors of sexual abuse and assault in complex, national cases against churches, organizations and large corporations who often shelter abusers while ignoring victims. We are relentless in our advocacy for our clients, which has enabled us to recover over $3 billion dollars on their behalf and secure multiple record-setting outcomes.
Our medical and legal staff has helped more than 30,000 families by investigating their child’s cerebral palsy, often uncovering negligence that other law firms missed. We are focused on helping families get the maximum compensation they need to ensure their financial future so that they have the ability to take care of their children for the rest of their lives. Our cerebral palsy lawyers are advocates for the injured and will use our vast knowledge and legal resources to help your family.
Securing a full measure of justice for active service members, veterans, and military families has been our passion for over 30 years. If the injuries suffered are severe, don’t expect the government to voluntarily do the right thing. Expect to battle for the compensation you deserve in cases involving catastrophic injuries, such as brain damage, birth-related cerebral palsy, paralysis, cancer misdiagnosis, amputation, rampant infections, facial disfigurement, and death.
JJS has uncovered the truth and won over three billion dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients across a wide range of extremely serious and complex cases.
