Defending Catastrophic Injury Claims

When catastrophic accidents happen, it is natural to look for someone to blame. At Lucas & Haverkamp, we understand that victims of serious personal injuries endure tremendous hurt and frustration. However, we also believe in our clients’ right to defend themselves against unfair accusations and frivolous claims. We work one on one with our clients to create a defense designed to minimize liability and reduce damages. Everything we do is geared toward obtaining the best results in the most efficient way possible.

Because personal injury claims hinge on the plaintiff’s ability to prove a link between the injury and the defendant, we focus our efforts on determining the reason for the accident. Our litigation team draws upon resources from a variety of disciplines, including physicians, accident reconstructionists, engineers, and economists. Using comprehensive investigative techniques and expert reports, we help our clients build a strong case designed to achieve results. We have defended clients in a variety of injury claims, including

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Workplace and industrial accidents
  • Dangerous and defective products
  • Construction accidents
  • Premises liability claims

Wrongful Death Defense

With so much at stake, it is critical to work with a legal team with an established record of success. As litigators, we are not intimidated by the tactics used by plaintiffs’ counsel. Through a combination of preparation and skill, we help juries see beyond the emotion to the true facts of the case.
