Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

McGinnis Lochridge represents injured individuals as well as defendants in catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases. Our highly experienced lawyers have helped clients achieve successful resolutions in federal, state and appellate courts around the country. When client needs dictate, our lawyers work closely with technical experts to compile and present the necessary evidence for the court and jury. We have experience integrating broad interdisciplinary knowledge into an effective prosecution or defense.

On the plaintiff’s side, the firm has been at the forefront of national multi-jurisdictional pharmaceutical litigation and has recovered millions for injured clients. Recently, our attorneys have served as national lead counsel and co-counsel on multiple cases involving clients injured by the injectable drug BOTOX®. We have also represented individuals in catastrophic trucking and other accident cases.

On the other side of the docket, we have defended individuals and companies against suits in toxic tort, wrongful death and other serious personal-injury matters. Some of these have involved environmental claims, mining, manufacturing, solid-waste disposal and the oil and gas industry. Our experience also includes obtaining Lone Pine-style case management orders.
