Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Though our primary business is on the defense of civil litigation and coverage disputes, when no conflict of interest exists, our attorneys have achieved substantial monetary recoveries for individuals who were injured or killed by the negligence or wrongful conduct of another.  We believe that a complex understanding of these cases from both sides (plaintiff and defense) make us more well-rounded and better able to anticipate the evidence and strategy on the other side.  We have successfully prosecuted numerous actions involving:

  • Auto and trucking negligence
  • Premises liability
  • Liquor liability (dram shop)
  • Insurance "bad faith"
  • Oilfield accidents
  • Products liability
  • Medical negligence
  • Boating and watercraft accidents
