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.
Loss of Life
One may think that just any lawyer can handle a routine auto accident case particularly one that is minor or that has relatively minor damage. However, the concept that people always receive minor injuries in minor accidents is a misnomer. We have special litigation and trial skills and experts to prove to juries that victims of minor car accidents can, in fact, sustain more serious injuries or death in these minor accidents. Through the use of damage matching analysis, computer-driven crush analysis, and vehicle dynamics programs, we can demonstrate that even the most minor crash can cause more serious injuries or death. In focusing on the scientific variable of Delta V or change in speed, we can demonstrate to juries that even minor accidents can result in larger impacts on the human body than one would expect or imagine. Often times a minor accident initially causes what is believed to be minor injuries which later develop into more serious problems, but we have the medical experts to combat claims by insurance companies that the injuries were not produced by the accident or were somehow caused by natural degenerative processes. As trial lawyers, we routinely see these claims by insurance companies but they backfire and juries award substantial damages. If you are in a minor accident but feel your injuries are more significant, please do not hesitate to call upon us to handle these kinds of cases.

Single Vehicle Crashes and Rollovers
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.
