Wrongful Death and Catastrophic Injuries

Our wrongful death and catastrophic injury attorneys know this area from the perspective of recovering proper compensation for the injured and their families as well as from the view of representing companies and the insurers of businesses. Complex multiparty death claims and catastrophic injury claims require an extraordinary attention to detail through investigation and research. Our goal in every complex death or catastrophic injury claim is to gather and assess all available records and regulations; involve necessary local, national or international experts; identify and take necessary depositions of key parties, witnesses and opposing experts; and then move the case to mediation as soon as practicable.

In the event an appropriate resolution cannot be reached at mediation, our team of litigators has extensive trial experience in both state and federal court settings. We strive to be proactive rather than reactive in each and every complex claim to push for early and effective resolutions. We recognize that thorough preparation is the key to successful litigation, regardless of the complexity and magnitude of the claim. Whether we represent the injured or defend complex claims, Lewis & Kappes has the experience to properly guide its clients through the process.
