Mass Disasters

No one can see it coming

Major disasters and large-scale accidents savage their victims in many ways. Coordinating and prosecuting the victims’ claims for their losses in wide-scale, preventable catastrophes require smart, aggressive lawyers. The defendants and insurance companies see these as high-stakes cases and often are willing to spend enormous amounts of money on defending the cases.
