As auto electrical systems are becoming more complex and intertwined, accident lawyers need to investigate every case to determine if a defective electrical system caused, at least in part, the accident. Increasingly, system faults leave no physical trace. Not only do these cases require substantial experience on the part of the lawyer, but it also requires the law firm to have the resources to hire the right experts. What it should not require is for the accident victim and his or her family to pay for the expense of a lawsuit against a manufacturer because these are very expensive cases to litigate. If you hire our law firm to represent you, we are not paid unless you win.
Product Liability Successes and National Leadership
Our lawyers have significant product liability experience and bring this knowledge to every accident investigation. We know what to look for and what to do with what we find.
A huge part of our success in this area has been getting the right experts on your side. For example, in one case a wheel came off of a vehicle, crashed into the windshield of car, and killed the driver. The driver’s family came to us, and we immediately saw the need to hire the top expert in the country on a certain wheel nut (yes, there are experts on this). The result was a very quick, very large settlement for the family.
Attorney Eric Hageman is one of our lead attorneys for these cases. His experience and record of success led to his appointment to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in multidistrict litigation (MDL) over accidents involving certain vehicles due to a defect in design. The committee oversaw the pre-trial litigation of federal lawsuits filed throughout the United States. Eric was instrumental in bringing the litigation to a successful conclusion.
