Personal Injury Defense

McDonnell Adels & Klestzick, PLLC has been retained by some of the country’s largest insurance carriers to defend their insureds who have been accused of negligence leading to personal injuries. 

In Most Cases, a Personal Injury Defense Attorney is Retained by the Insurance Company

Personal injury defense involves representing people and/or businesses who are sued by individuals who claim that their injuries were caused by negligent acts or omissions. Often the attorneys are retained by an insurance company to represent the individual or business under a policy of insurance. However, our firm has also been hired directly by individuals and/or businesses to defend them when there is no available insurance coverage.

Most personal injury claims are related to “slip-and-fall” accidents or automobile accidents that require the plaintiff to establish a “serious injury” as required by the Insurance Law. Other types of personal injury cases include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Product Liability - A product liability claim is when a manufacturer of a product is accused of negligence when a product, when used as designed, causes a serious injury or death. 

  • Medical Malpractice - A medical malpractice case is when a doctor or health care provider is accused of causing an injury to or the death of a patient through inappropriate action or inaction.

  • Wrongful Death - While most claims are made by individuals who have suffered a serious physical injury, other personal injury cases are brought by family members of a person who had died through the allegedly neglectful act of a person or business.
