We have defended the full gamut of high-stakes personal injury claims, including wrongful death and severe injuries that resulted in life-long disabilities, such as quadriplegia, paraplegia, and permanent brain damage. In cases of clear liability, we find creative ways to address damages, such as the retention of experts to assess annuities and life expectancy, and specialized motions. Our litigation team often is called in to assist other firms in the trial phase of litigation, and we have achieved successful outcomes in cases where injured plaintiffs asked for tens of millions of dollars. In defending such claims, we have represented product manufacturers and distributors, health care providers, property owners, trucking companies and owners of fleet vehicles, food manufacturers and distributors, and construction companies, among others, in matters ranging from trucking and motor vehicle accidents, product liability matters, medical negligence claims and work place accidents.
