Defense Against Tort Claims Involving Injuries
Devising effective strategies to defend employers requires detailed analysis. For some employers, a successful defense will focus on those companies’ or government agencies’ high standards for hiring, training and enforcing safety precautions. Specific circumstances related to an injury incident may also provide the key to a strong defense.
Our trial lawyers’ track record of successful defense outcomes is a result of customized strategies for our personal injury defense clients: businesses, public entities and insurers. We have often made news in the legal world through advocacy for employers and insurers in high-profile cases throughout the United States.
