Wrongful death or catastrophic Injury lawsuits can be brought when a person dies or suffers a serious injury due to an allegedly defective product or willful or negligent act. Cases involving death or serious injuries must be handled with appropriate discretion, but unfounded claims of are sometimes made by the family of the deceased or the injured person out of frustration.
The attorneys of Starnes Davis Florie have extensive experience defending clients against such claims, and will go to all necessary measures to defend our clients. We frequently employ the testimony of expert witnesses to confirm that actions taken by our clients were standard practices given the circumstances. When trial is not the most effective option, we have negotiated favorable settlements for our clients.
