Building Compelling Cases for Victims of Catastrophic Events

Accidents happen. Disaster may strike without warning. This may be true, but preventable catastrophes can be linked to some form of negligence or wrongdoing. Identifying fault is a crucial step our Fairfax injury lawyers must take when handling major disaster litigation. We must also be able to prove liability, and this can bring about many technical matters that require the attention and expertise of trained professionals in specialized fields.

When we take on a case involving a major catastrophe, Ashcraft & Gerel works with qualified experts in all appropriate fields. In handling a mine explosion case, for example, we reached out to experts in mine ventilation and engineering to ensure our case was strong and accurate, as well as involving economists, medical professionals, and other expert witnesses. We utilize our resources and include experts to fully support our clients’ cases.

A disaster will change the course of your life, but a brighter future is attainable with proper legal counsel. Call (703) 940-0028 today to see how our Fairfax injury attorneys can assist you.
