Our lawyers have collected millions for clients, including $3,750,000.00 for a client whose dirt bike malfunctioned during a race which resulted in his leg being crushed.
Just after the crash, our client was notified that his bike had been recalled because of the risk of the exact malfunction that had caused the accident. Attorney Fred Pritzker represented him in a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective vehicle.
“Manufacturers are legally obligated to sell safe products,” said Fred, who recently won $45,000,000.00 for clients injured by another product. “Under strict liability laws, they are responsible for all harm caused by their products.”
Our lawyers also won $6,000,000.00 for a client whose leg had to be amputated after rear-end collision caused by a drunk driver who had just left a bar. Our lawyers sued both the driver of the car and the bar for personal injury.
When you hire our lawyers, they immediately begin an independent investigation of the motorcycle accident, which includes visiting the scene of the accident, inspecting the bike and other vehicles involved in the crash, interviewing eye witnesses and corporate executives (looking for both corporate wrongdoing and issues with a commercial driver of a bus or truck).
You will not have to pay any upfront fees because we are not paid until we win your case. This is important in complex cases that are expensive to litigate.
