Psychological & Emotional Injuries
We have decades of experience in handling PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) cases ranging from assault and battery and rape cases to psychological trauma suffered by accident victims and by-stander victims who witness injuries and death. These injuries are unfortunately not given the proper weight that they deserve in litigation and trial by corporations and insurance companies and we make sure we retain the proper experts to evaluate, treat and testify convincingly to a jury as to the effects of PTSD and emotional injuries to support our claim for substantial damages.
Orthopedics & Joint Injuries
We see a host of serious orthopedic injuries that ranges from a broken foot to a hip replacement to a knee replacement. We have a stable of decorated experts who served on Olympic committees and professional sports teams as consultants and team doctors to evaluate, treat and serve as expert witnesses in our cases. We are wise to the defense’s common approach and argument that such injuries while caused by the accident were pre-existing through arthritic changes that would have likely occurred even without the accident, as well as there was no such mechanism of injury in the accident. Such defense attacks are tired and ineffective when met with experienced trial lawyers and experts that are prepared to demonstrate the manner in which the accident specifically caused the injuries resulting in substantial awards.
Paralysis & Spinal Injuries
In most of the accident cases we handle, our clients typically suffer neck or back spinal injuries ranging from complete paralysis to disk and facet injury in the spine. We utilize the best neurosurgeons, radiologists and pain management experts to evaluate, these injuries who can offer expert opinions on the severity at trial. In a world where every defense lawyer contends that any level of spinal injury is degenerative or pre-existed the accident, we aggressively litigate and offer evidence on the traumatic nature of the injuries through expert opinion, diagnostic tools, and medical illustration and animation. Our experience and knowledge of the jury instructions allows us to build a case around the defense arguments of degenerative conditions that wins every time and results in substantial monetary awards.

Back and Neck Injuries (Whiplash) and Pain Management
We represent many families whose loved ones have been lost in an accident by the negligent act of another. We have decades of experience in asking juries for damages for the loss of a loved one. Understanding how to calculate both economic loss and non-economic losses of the deceased requires special experts and trial preparation. Our time-honored methods of selecting juries and presenting evidence of the loss of a loved one and the grief of their absence has allowed us to recover millions of dollars for our clients in these cases.

Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic Brain Injuries known as a “TBI” are a very specialized area of injury litigation. Ranging from what is commonly known and referred to as a “concussion” to a moderate brain injury to a severe brain injury and coma all require specialized diagnostic brain imaging tools, neuropsychological and psychiatric testing and neurological evaluation that can only be found with lawyers that have handled these cases for decades and stayed abreast of the recent developments in the field. We certainly understand and appreciate the distinction of a person that has suffered a brain injury at some level but cannot readily be observed like a fracture or other more objective injuries, yet it impacts their daily life in an unspeakable and profound way.

Motorcycle, Bicycle & Bird Scooter Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are a specialty unto themselves. These machines are of course unique and the operating rights of motorcycles are by enlarge ignored on the highway by other motorists. We have special
experience in litigating and trying motorcycles cases in accidents involving lane splitting, sideswipe and intersectional accidents. We use experts in motorcycle operation and technology as well as human factors experts on the requirement of other drivers to visualize and detect the presence of motorcycles. The reality is that most drivers do not know the rights of motorcycles on the road and do not know where to expect them on the highway, resulting in serious accidents. The same is true of bicycles and bird scooters, they have very special rules of the road and most drivers do not understand or respect the rights of non-motorized vehicles such as bicycles and bird scooters, bike lanes and other designated areas for their operation. For example, bicycles and bird scooters are required by law to operate according to the rules ofthe road, observe traffic lights and streets signs and are not considered pedestrians that can operate on the sidewalks and rely on pedestrian crossing signals. We understand those unique rules and know how to effectively educate juries in their application. Not surprisingly, jurors are by nature prejudiced against motorcycles, bicycles, bird scooters, and other non-motorized vehicles and we have experience in confronting those prejudices with jurors in voir dire resulting in a jury that is fair and willing to significantly compensate victims of motorcycle, bicycle and bird scooter accidents, which generally result in seriousinjury or death.
