Personal injury/wrongful death defense

Manning Leaver defends clients against personal injury and wrongful death claims. In litigating these claims, the firm reviews available insurance coverage, conducts a thorough factual investigation, analyzes the defenses which may be applicable to the case, identifies other potentially responsible parties to pursue the client's indemnity rights, and consults with and employs expert witnesses to develop and implement successful defense strategies.  Chief among these strategies is seeking summary adjudication on issues such as lack of duty, lack of causation, and inapplicability of strict liability.
