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.

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.
