Our experienced counsel defends clients facing catastrophic injury cases.
From passenger bus accidents and train derailments to product liability, plant explosions, chemical leaks and on-the-job injuries, Lightfoot defends clients against high-exposure catastrophic injury lawsuits. We have deep experience handling claims involving serious personal injury, including burns, paralysis, brain injuries and amputations, or death. Claims in these cases also frequently carry with them the risk of punitive damages.
We represent clients across a broad range of sectors, including those in the oil and gas, transportation, manufacturing and construction industries. No matter the industry, we are always focused on working toward a solution that is best for our clients.
Catastrophic injury litigation is complex and requires an understanding of technical, medical and scientific issues as well as legal talent. Lightfoot’s litigators blend an understanding of these critical areas to mount the best possible defense for a client. We manage the details so that all potential options are available to resolve a case, whether it is by settlement, trial or appeal.
Because of our approach, Lightfoot is frequently brought in by other litigators or their clients at the last minute to serve as trial or appellate counsel to ensure the case is properly tried and avenues for appeal are preserved.
