In state, federal, and international courts, Podhurst Orseck has handled personal injury and wrongful death claims ranging from automobile liability, products liability, and business torts. Since our founding in 1967, personal injury has been the firm’s cornerstone practice area. Whether in trial or appellate litigation, our legal representation is unmatched and our results unrivaled.
Many attorneys who claim to practice personal injury and wrongful death law prefer not to see a courtroom. Their perceived strength lies in negotiating a settlement the plaintiff and defendant will agree to, with minimal effort invested.
At Podhurst Orseck, we’re not those attorneys. We’re litigators. Our strength resides in the courtroom arguing our clients’ most complex cases. Our skill and success lie wherever personal injury and wrongful death claims take us to hold defendants accountable and find justice for our clients.
A personal injury / wrongful death law firm’s most lasting legacy could be whether it held product manufacturers accountable for actions that harmed consumers. No matter where a case takes us, from Nevada or Peruvian gold mines steeped in toxic mercury, the homes of Spanish patients who received HIV contaminated blood, to a Florida family that suffered at the hands of another, our trial team has earned a global reputation and high praise for litigation prowess, respect for the venue, and unmatched client success.
With litigators whom judges have called “a true litigation hero” and peers say our trial experience is “second to none,” Podhurst Orseck lawyers are consistently recognized as some of the top attorneys in the U.S. Our personal injury and wrongful death successes in matters of automobiles, tire treads, commercial aviation, and other areas reflect both the breadth of our experience and our skill in arguing our clients’ cases.
