INJURY AND MASS TORTS

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 products like talcum powder linked to ovarian cancer 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.

Outstanding injury and accident law attorneys

We are experienced injury trial lawyers who represent only plaintiffs. Many of our attorneys have been recognized by national and state publications as leading personal injury attorneys.

Lieff Cabraser’s High-Profile Injury Cases

The National Law Journal has repeatedly selected Lieff Cabraser as one of the top plaintiffs’ law firms in the nation. U.S. News and Best Lawyers has recognized our personal injury lawyers and firm as the nation’s Law Firm of the Year in the category of Mass Torts and Plaintiffs’ Class Action for four separate years.

In January of 2021, The American Lawyer named Lieff Cabraser its “Boutique/Specialty Litigation Firm of the Year.” We saw six partners named to Lawdragon’s “500 Leading Lawyers” for 2021, along with our second partner named to the publication’s “Hall of Fame.” Best Lawyers’ 2021 rankings include thirty individual “Best Lawyer” lawyer listings as well as thirteen tier-one placements (including national mass tort/class actions) and three California “Lawyer of the Year” rankings for antitrust, product liability, and mass tort class actions.

In April of 2021, Benchmark Litigation named Lieff Cabraser its “California Plaintiff Firm of the Year” for the third year in a row, and we were 2019 finalists for the publication’s national “Plaintiff Law Firm of the Year” award. In December 2019, The American Lawyer included Lieff Cabraser in its “Top 50 Litigation Departments in the U.S.,” the only all-plaintiff-side litigation firm included among the firms recognized.

Remarkable recoveries in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits

We have obtained more than $600 million for our clients in individual injury and accident cases, including awards of over $3 million in 30 separate cases. In addition, we have obtained judgments and settlements in excess of $16.2 billion in product liability class actions. This amount does not include our work in the landmark $206 billion recovery in the Attorney General litigation against the tobacco industry.

The resources to hold the powerful accountable

We are among the largest firms in the United States that represent only plaintiffs. In addition to our injury lawyers, we employ multiple registered nurses, legal assistants, investigators, and litigation support specialists. Considerable personnel resources, along with our ability to advance litigation costs in our clients’ cases, enable Lieff Cabraser to litigate against the largest and most powerful corporations in the world.

Attentive, personal service

We work closely with our clients throughout the litigation process to maximize and expedite their recoveries. Each client is assigned an attorney who is responsible for prosecuting the case and regularly communicating with the client. At the same time, our attorneys work as a team, drawing upon their combined knowledge, training, and skills to provide our clients with decades of litigation expertise.
