Most probably, the most common personal injury lawsuit involves the automobile accident. See, e.g., T. Cohen, Tort Trials and Verdicts in Large Counties, 2001, p. 2, Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin, November, 2004 (www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf). The defense of motor vehicle personal injury lawsuits has comprised a significant proportion of Reed Armstrong['s case load and jury trials for over 50 years.
In many cases where the defendant/client is clearly at fault, the plaintiff uses that circumstance as an opportunity to overreach or roll the dice. We have proven methods of defending a case on the damages when necessary and have achieved many good results. On the other hand, many cases involve catastrophic injury or death, where the liability issues must be keenly developed. We have defended cases involving death, brain damage, dismemberment, spinal injuries, burn injuries, de gloving injuries and other cases of severe disfigurement and disability. We have represented individual drivers as well as taxi cab companies, courier services, trucking companies, and other employers of drivers. Our cases have also included accidents between trucks or automobiles and pedestrians, bicycles, and motorcycles.
