Practice Areas

We specialize in civil law suits involving severe injury or death.

Medical Device Litigation

Close Me

At Lyons & Lyons we understand medical devices and the responsibilities of medical device manufacturers. We understand how medical devices should be studied, approved by the FDA, manufactured, marketed and distributed. Read More + We understand the responsibilities of doctors who put medical devices into their patients. When medical devices hurt people we know how to prove it.

The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have successfully represented clients injured by medical devices for decades.

We will do what is best for your individual case. When a medical device manufacturer injures you or someone you love, we will hold them accountable.

Wrongful Death

Close Me

Suing for the wrongful death of a loved one is a precious legal right. In Texas only certain loved ones – a parent, a spouse, or a child – have the power to seek compensation for the lost affection and support of their departed family member. Read More + Only a few have the legal right to stand in the shoes of a person’s estate to redress their final grievance. It is in that way a family member can seek justice, and hold whoever caused the death accountable.

When you ask Lyons & Lyons to represent you in a wrongful death case, we understand you are calling on us to speak some of the last words regarding the life and death of your departed. We will treat your request with the honor and reverence it deserves. That is how we get justice and accountability for your loss.

Civil Rights

Close Me

The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have made local and national headlines achieving record breaking settlements on behalf of clients who suffered death or catastrophic injury at the hands of the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS, now ICE). Read More + We have settled cases on behalf of clients catastrophically injured when denied medical care in custody, including in private prisons.

The Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution guarantees the right to be free from government abuse of power such as the unreasonable use of deadly force and the denial of medical care in custody. But our government institutions – our laws and our courts – do not make it easy to seek justice when these rights are violated. If you have been injured by the unreasonable use of deadly force or the denial of medical care in custody, you will need an experienced law firm like Lyons & Lyons to get justice.

Pharmaceutical Litigation

Close Me

At Lyons & Lyons we understand pharmaceuticals and the responsibilities of drug companies. We understand how drugs should be studied, approved by the FDA, manufactured, marketed and distributed. We understand the responsibilities of doctors who prescribe drugs and pharmacies that dispense them. When pharmaceuticals hurt people, we know how to prove it.
Read More + The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have successfully represented clients injured by pharmaceuticals for decades. We understand drug litigation and we will carefully and conscientiously decide whether your case should be pursued individually or as part of consolidated litigation. We will do what is best for your individual case. When a drug company, a doctor or a pharmacy injures you or someone you love, we will hold them accountable.

Product Liability

Close Me

Every year thousands in the United States are injured by unsafe products. Often the injured person had no idea the product was dangerous. Companies that make products should design them as safely as possible, they should make and distribute them with care, and they should sufficiently warn of the product’s dangers. Read More +

The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have for decades successfully brought cases on behalf of clients injured by dangerous products. We have taken on all kinds of wrong-doers, including many companies listed in the Fortune 500, and we have won.

Mass Tort Litigation

Close Me

Individual Cases – Multi-District Litigation – Class Actions Read More + The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have for decades successfully pursued individual product liability cases, including those regarding defective pharmaceuticals and medical devices. This is our favored way of helping clients who have suffered injury due to a defective drug or medical device — one plaintiff or family versus the defendants who injured him or her, no matter how big and powerful those defendants are.

But when a product has injured hundreds or more, there may be advantages to allowing the case to be made part of consolidated litigation, such as in a state or federal multi-district litigation (MDL). This allows all plaintiffs and their lawyers to join forces and share litigation costs. The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have recovered for clients in consolidated litigation dating back to the Dalkon Shield and Fen-Phen diet drug litigations. Most recently the lawyers at Lyons & Lyons have obtained settlements for clients injured by metal-on-metal hip implants.

A class action is a kind of “mass tort” that is different than consolidated litigation. It is one case, not a collection of individually filed cases. In a class action, one or a few plaintiffs are chosen as the representatives of a class of plaintiffs who all suffered similar injuries. In recent years class actions are less often used in cases where injuries vary significantly among plaintiffs.

It is important to know that, even if a federal MDL has been established on the subject of your case, there may still be ways to pursue your case individually, separate and apart from the federally consolidated litigation. So an important first question is: Should your case be pursued individually or in consolidated litigation, such as in an MDL? At Lyons & Lyons we answer that question case by case. In our opinion, a one size fits all approach can result in the wrong decision for some clients. An economically challenging case might be weakened if it goes alone and is weighed down by unrecoverable litigation costs. A strong stand-alone case might needlessly suffer in a system that delays resolution for years and compels the client to accept an unsatisfactory settlement.

The lawyers at Lyons & Lyons are steeped in experience in successfully pursuing cases both standing alone and as part of consolidated litigation. We make the right decision for each and every client because of that experience, and because we care.

Contingency Fees

At Lyons & Lyons we work on a contingency fee basis. That means we do not take a fee unless and until we recover for you. In addition, at Lyons & Lyons we bear all expenses unless and until we obtain a recovery. If we do not recover for you, you owe us nothing.
