Complex Tort Defense/Catastrophic Loss
The accidental loss of a life, catastrophic personal injury or property
damage is tragic. When those losses are sustained, through explosion,
chemical leak, product use or misuse, or other circumstances, many potentially
responsible businesses and their insurers retain DeMoura | Smith to protect
their reputation, defend and advocate for them and, if warranted, resolve
those actions fairly and reasonably.
DeMoura | Smith attorneys have tried hundreds of cases involving personal
injury, wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury or property damage
in state and federal courts throughout the country. The Firm's attorneys
have represented utilities, product manufacturers, chemical companies,
pharmaceutical companies, land owners and insurers in explosion cases,
airborne chemical leak cases, construction accidents, product liability
class actions, wrongful death suits, paralysis claims, and other personal
injury matters involving catastrophic loss. These matters require experienced
and aggressive counsel to provide complex case management, coordination
of early and thorough investigation of the accident scene, the products,
the witnesses and response teams, retention of scientists, engineers,
reconstruction and failure analysts, or cause and origin experts, significant
document review and production, sophisticated analysis, and sometimes
multi-jurisdictional and multi-party litigation.
DeMoura | Smith has a track record of success representing clients in complex
tort and catastrophic loss cases. DeMoura | Smith was recently recognized
by The Best Lawyers In America as the top firm in Boston for Product Liability
Defense and Class Action Defense. The Firm's experienced advocates
work with their clients to rapidly respond to the crisis, defend the client's
interests and reputation, preserve all material evidence and resolve these
important matters favorably and as efficiently as possible.
The Firm's trial lawyers recognize that the adversary process is a
time-consuming and expensive drain on a business's resources and diversion
of management's attention from operations, growth and achievement
of other important corporate objectives. Bearing this in mind, they engage
in early and continuous assessment, designed to advise the client whether
to reach resolution through settlement or discovery and trial of the case.
Either way, the Firm's trial attorneys use their considerable advocacy
skills and experience to achieve the most successful result in a cost-effective
and time-conscious manner.
