Weber Gallagher fields a diverse team of litigators. It includes skilled, aggressive veterans who have tried numerous cases to verdict and attorneys whose experience in investigations and attention to detail regularly lead to summary judgments and favorable settlements. These seasoned litigators oversee the work of younger team members, whose involvement helps us contain client costs. We are particularly mindful of costs as we design a strategy tailored to a client’s business needs. Trying a case to verdict can be expensive and is not always the most desirable path. A client who is unable to gain dismissal from a suit might consider a settlement. In some instances, alternative dispute resolution is an option. We guide clients as they decide on the appropriate path. Our attorneys appear in state and federal courts, including at appellate levels, and in administrative proceedings. Clients engage us for a range of complex matters, and we have extensive experience with expert witnesses.
Obtained a verdict where plaintiff was involved in an altercation inside a hotel and sustained significant injuries including 3 separate leg and ankle fractures which required surgical intervention in the form of an ORIF of his leg and ankle. Following the surgery, plaintiff developed a hole in his leg due to his underlying diabetes. The last demand made before starting opening statements was $1.2 million. The case was tried to verdict and the jury found in favor of the plaintiff. However, our client, the hotel, was only found liable for 35% of the damage. The total verdict and our clients liability was more than $1 million less than the initial demand.
