Catastrophic Torts

Wigdor LLP has been at the forefront of successfully handling catastrophic tort litigation on behalf of our clients. These cases involve serious physical injury, dismemberment, burns, and/or death as a result of the negligence of the defendant. While there are many lawyers who handle personal injury cases due to slip-and-falls and automobile accidents on a regular basis, we handle complex cases involving grievous injuries and large defendants such as the Con Edison steam pipe explosion and a case in which a young woman was electrocuted by a fallen electrical wire.  These types of cases require a team of skilled lawyers and a firm infrastructure with the resources to go toe-to-toe with the larger law firms that will no doubt be hired by the defendant to try to avoid its obligation to compensate you for your severe injuries or the loss of a loved one.
