Rourke & Blumenthal recently achieved a $6 million settlement in a wrongful death case arising from a motor vehicle crash in northwestern Ohio. The case involved a commercial vehicle operated by an individual suspected of drug use and a company that failed to monitor his behavior. Rourke & Blumenthal worked with experts in the fields of crash reconstruction, human resources, forensic pathology, toxicology, and fleet management to present the strongest claim possible on behalf of our client. The opinions and reports provided by our retained experts played an important role in helping us and to achieve an outstanding result in a very tragic case.
Expert witnesses in wrongful death and survival cases help to explain the mechanism of injury, the extent of conscious pain and suffering endured by the injured person, and the legal duties of parties involved. While not all wrongful death cases require expert witnesses, it is important to work with a law firm that understands when and how to use them. The attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal have extensive experience working with experts in auto and trucking cases. Our experience and network allow us to identify and retain the appropriate experts in a variety of fields and tailor our approach to meet the particular needs of each auto and trucking case.
