Catastrophic Injury Defense
It takes special experience and sensitivity to defend and try cases where the plaintiff has suffered a catastrophic injury such as traumatic brain injury, severe burns, paralysis or amputation and in cases where there has been the death of a loved one. CCP lawyers have developed that special expertise in a broad range of cases and trials involving product liability, dietary products, construction, trucking, fire and explosion, and even radio contest cases.
Because of that special expertise and trial experience, CCP is often asked to take over a case on the eve of trial. When there is a lot at stake, companies and insurers believe it is easier to teach the CCP lawyer the facts of a case than teach another lawyer how to try these sensitive, high-exposure cases against top ranked plaintiff lawyers.
CCP lawyers have an in-depth understanding of insurance issues in complex, multi-party cases and long standing relationships with the top mediators. Thus, clients also look to CCP attorneys to try to settle these emotional cases before trial. However, clients (and opposing counsel) also know that CCP’s attorneys have the skill, experience and willingness to take the case to a jury if settlement efforts fail.
