Cases involving work-related injuries and business/insurance “bad faith” practices often appear complicated and disheartening to clients. Furthermore, these types of cases involve “complex litigation,” which is known to strike fear into the hearts of many an attorney. While most lawyers try to avoid this kind of law practice, those at the Packard Law Firm have always been drawn to it. These complex cases usually require the investment of significant time, energy, and money. They demand that the attorney have command over the rules of civil procedure in order to navigate through the thicket of discovery issues. They often require the attorney to become a semi-expert in order to effectively use expert evidence to combat the "junk science" often presented by defense counsel.
We have found these types of cases often involve issues such as wrongful death, serious injuries sustained in the workplace, and wrongful termination. These cases also frequently involve complex legal obstacles to overcome such as multi-district litigation, lengthy trials, and cases with numerous expert witnesses. Furthermore, these cases within “complex litigation” often deal with high stakes, where the disputes are over millions of dollars. We understand these issues require an attorney to have the expertise and experience, along with passion to handle the massive amount of time and attention that these cases require. We also understand the need for someone to navigate through the mountains of data in order to identify and promote the key issues that will bring success to the case.
While the Packard Law Firm has handled numerous work-related injury, wrongful death, and wrongful termination cases, we have also handled many other cases involving complex litigation. Some of these include medical malpractice, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and murder, commercial breach of contract, and product liability cases.
We have assembled a team that is designed to handle these cases, and we are not afraid to take a case to trial. However, we understand the importance of giving honest and frank advice anytime an out-of-court settlement offer is made. Our objective is to help our clients evaluate the risks and rewards at every step along the way so that our clients can make informed decisions. The end goal is to can strategically and effectively do what is necessary to meet our clients’ needs.
