Catastrophic Injury & Wrongful Death
SWF has defended catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases in the area of products liability, including products such as elevators, escalators, automobiles, aircraft and electrical and mechanical equipment. These cases include serious personal injury claims and wrongful death cases resulting from automobile negligence, premises and products liability, air crashes and general liability.
Our team of experienced and compassionate attorneys and paralegals also helps accident victims through the difficult period of adjustment to a devastating injury. At the same time, SWF attorneys meticulously investigate and prepare our cases to obtain maximum compensation from those who are responsible.
These cases are far from routine and can be quite complex. Our in-house resources provide attorneys with up-to-date knowledge and information concerning our clients' injuries. Often, the investigation incorporates the use of accident reconstruction experts, engineers, scientists and other experts necessary to prove our clients' case. SWF utilizes important aids such as computer and video simulations, as well as medical illustrations in the presentation of our court cases.
The results of our trial lawyers are known and respected throughout Georgia. A few highlighted cases include:
- Defense verdict in jury trial for manufacturer in products liability case of a high voltage electrical switch explosion which resulted in catastrophic personal injuries.
- Successful representation in jury trials for plaintiff and defense in catastrophic injury (quadriplegia) cases.
- Represented the families of victims in the SwissAir 111 and the ASA Brunswick airline crashes.
