Wrongful Death

A “wrongful death” occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity. We thoroughly investigate all lawsuits resulting in wrongful death, including massive auto collisions and serious catastrophic events and work to make sure that the victims’ families are fairly compensated for their losses.

Catastrophic Injury

Injuries that are considered catastrophic, due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of the individuals who experience them, include the following: brain injury, spinal cord injury, accidental amputation, severe burns, multiple fractures, or other, neurological disorders. If you have suffered a serious or catastrophic injury as a result of a massive car accident, plane crash, mass transit collision, or other catastrophic event, we have the experience to get you the fair and just compensation you deserve.

Brain Injuries

Concussions, coma, seizures, memory loss, and other disabling injuries due to accidents are some of the legal matters that our lawyers have extensive background in representing. We retain the best experts to assess and calculate the monetary cost of life-care issues and future health care for you.

Spinal Injuries

When paralysis or disability result from an accidental spinal injury due to a car accident, fall, sports injury or other trauma, our lawyers will aggressively get the compensation you deserve to move your life forward.

Semi-Truck Accidents

Rollovers and collisions due to truck driver error or faulty equipment are responsible for many multi-vehicle accidents. Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, and big rigs are dangerous due to their heavy weight and larger size compared to passenger cars. Our firm has extensive experience in semi-truck accidents.

Aircraft Accidents

Whether the crash involves a helicopter, private plane, or commercial carrier, our attorneys are qualified to represent your interests in these types of lawsuits in state, national, and multi-district litigation.

Defective Products

Our past cases have included claims involving propane furnaces, floods, environmental spills, stray electricity, dangerous drug side effects such as those from Vioxx and Prempro, recreational vehicles, bicycles, medical devices, and more.
