A catastrophic injury does more than cause harm. It changes lives. Not just for the victim, but for their families, as well. Our clients come from all walks of life, with different backgrounds and experiences. But they all share one thing: They’ve seen a needless, preventable injury turn their world upside down. Shouldn’t someone be accountable?
We Get Answers
At the Newsome Law Firm of Orlando, we don’t just try cases, we get answers. We know: all lawyers do that. But in fact, it’s not that simple. Most law firms are built around volume practices. That means they take many cases, hoping to settle each as quickly as possible. For a lot of clients, especially those with relatively minor injuries, that’s good enough. But for those who have suffered the most severe sort of harm, it’s not. Their cases are complex, often pitting them against large companies that can hire top-flight legal talent to defend them. The cases are expensive to try, requiring expert testimony, detailed investigations, and enormous amounts of preparation, determination, and commitment. They demand resources most firms just can’t – and won’t – muster. The result: the most crucial issues and questions can go unanswered.
We don’t let that happen. By carefully choosing our cases – trying just a handful at any given time – we’re able to give every matter we take on the resources it needs. The strategy has been hugely successful. Over the years, we’ve built a reputation for litigating the hardest cases against the most powerful defendants. We’ve obtained dozens of million-dollar verdicts and settlements. But more importantly, we’ve changed corporate behavior, and made consumers safer. The discoveries we’ve made while trying our cases have resulted in the recall of millions of defective products.
Other firms tout their recoveries, but we’re most proud of our “uncoverings” – exposing dangerous products and getting them off the market.
Been There, Done That
The cases we handle are complicated, often highly technical matters against powerful, deep-pocketed opponents that can give any trial lawyer a good workout. We’ve been able to stand up to and beat back the challenge because we bring two key advantages to the table. First and foremost, we’ve mastered the nuanced, often tricky areas of law our work involves. But just as importantly, we understand how our opponents think. That’s because we’ve been in their shoes.
Earlier in their careers, all of our attorneys represented companies similar to those we go up against today. They’ve represented major automobile manufacturers, and top- tier health providers. They learned the strategies, tactics, and diversions the best defense lawyers rely on – and how to overcome them. All of them decided that their dedication, and talents, could be better served helping the victims of catastrophic accidents.
Back then, their experience was eye-opening. Today, it’s a competitive advantage. It lets us not only understand our cases, but the thinking – and strategies – of our opponents and that’s an edge we leverage every day.
