Catastrophic Injury Defense

Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell represents defendants in catastrophic personal injury matters. We have particular experience with high-exposure cases in which the plaintiffs are seeking damage awards, including punitive or exemplary damages, in the range of multimillions to billions of dollars.

Our lawyers are often retained on the eve of trial to try difficult cases, especially those with serious injuries in plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions, when settlement negotiations being handled by other law firms have been unsuccessful.

WTO lawyers have represented numerous large corporations, healthcare providers, professional services firms, property owners and managers, insurance companies, small businesses, and individual professionals in disputes involving injury to the plaintiff.
