Casualty / Tort Defense Practice

All of our attorneys handle general liability/tort matters ranging from routine automobile cases to complex pharmaceutical and product liability litigation. Like our coverage practice, our clients hire us to defend these claims not only in New York and New Jersey, but in other States throughout the country. Our focus in these cases is not only the defense of our client, but also locating other potentially responsible parties and their insurance carriers to whom we can shift financial responsibility for an accident. With our insurance expertise, we have successfully obtained coverage from other carriers via tender and/or declaratory judgment actions. The areas of our tort defense practice includes the following:

  • Automobile liability
  • Construction accident litigation
  • Defense of Municipalities and School Districts
  • Medical Device Litigation
  • Pharmaceutical litigation
  • Premises liability
  • Product liability
  • Property damage - both first and third-party claims
  • Trucker’s Liability
  • Toxic Torts
