Catastrophic injury cases are those in which our clients were seriously injured because of others acted unreasonably. These cases do not fall neatly into the other categories (such as medical malpractice or automobile collisions), but we were able to prove that our client would not have been injured if others had done their job or acted normally.
For these cases, we work closely with subject matter expert witnesses to gain a deep understanding of engineering, design, and safety principles, in order to advocate for our clients.
The facts of each case are different. That means that a past record of success in another case is not a guarantee of a similar result in your case or in any future case. However, we have listed a small number of recent settlements or court verdicts to represent the types of success we have had in the past in complex liability cases. Call us today to find out whether you have a case.
