Verdicts & Settlements

The following personal injury cases are examples of significant results obtained with our attorneys’ efforts in personal injury litigation involving wrongful death or serious injuries.  All cases are different and past verdicts and settlements do not necessarily predict future results.  In some cases, results were limited by available insurance policy proceeds.  These cases, however, show our lawyers’ extensive experience in personal injury litigation arising from car crashes, malpractice, dangerous property, and hazardous products and causing injury or wrongful death.  The results detailed below help make our community safer by deterring negligent and wrongful conduct.
