Personal Injury

Obtaining justice for the injured

Lieff Cabraser has played a leading role in many of the largest, most important personal injury law and wrongful death lawsuits in the U.S. These cases have involved negligent conduct as well as a vast range of defective products — from dangerous prescription drugs and faulty medical devices to unsafe vehicles and consumer products. In many cases, we assisted our clients in persuading the corporate defendants to issue recalls or improve their safety procedures for the protection of all consumers and patients.
