Practice/Industry Group Overview
Goldberg Segalla’s Asbestos Litigation Practice Group provides our clients with an arsenal of trial lawyers who have decades of experience in this complex and ever-evolving area of law. We serve as coordinating, trial and local counsel for a vast array of manufacturers, distributors, service providers, jobsite owners and other companies that have been joined in asbestos litigation. Our team has litigated thousands of cases over the last 30 years, routinely preparing cases for trial and, when necessary, taking them to verdict.
We believe that each asbestos case must be thoroughly prepared as if it were going to trial — or, in cases where there is no liability, we aggressively pursue an early dismissal. Our team develops a comprehensive working knowledge of each client with a focus on developing defenses that are unique to the client or particular facts of a case. If there is a medical defense, we take the lead and work with our experts to develop it. If there is a question regarding credibility of product identification, we investigate the sites and locate co-workers to challenge a plaintiff’s claim. We aggressively develop proof regarding alternative exposure.
In short, we know what needs to be done to place our clients in the best possible position to proceed to trial and verdict, if necessary. Our proactive approach, coupled with our relationships with the prominent plaintiffs’ firms, has led to consistently successful results for our clients.
Additionally, our monthly CaseWatch: Asbestos newsletter provides our clients and colleagues with a survey of recently reported asbestos decisions as well as a fresh and diverse perspective on cutting-edge developments in asbestos litigation across the country.
