At Girardi | Keese, we represented the sickened residents of Hinkley, California, in a case made famous by the film Erin Brockovich. In that case, we charged Pacific Gas and Electric Company with poisoning the environment, and ultimately won millions for our clients and their families.
- We’ll fight for you like we did for the people of Hinkley and countless others since then. To learn more about how we can help you when you’ve been hurt, call 800-401-4530.
Be it a car, train, motorcycle or airplane, we represent people hurt in every kind of crash involving a motor vehicle, and we represent the families of those who lost their lives.
Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are all too common, and lead to a wide range of injuries, from broken bones and burns to permanent disability. These cases are tragic – especially those involving catastrophic injuries and death – because they’re often preventable.
At Girardi | Keese, our mission is to ensure that the products we buy and the drugs our doctors prescribe are safe to use – and to hold companies and manufacturers accountable for marketing unsafe products that hurt consumers.
We expect a reasonable measure of safety in the marketplace. From children’s toys and safety seats to auto defects, medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs, we’ve spent years litigating products liability claims against powerful companies – and we do everything we can to win.
The Erin Brockovich case is one of the most infamous examples of toxic tort law, in which we worked to prove that Pacific Gas and Electric Company flagrantly dumped millions of gallons of wastewater into the environment. This, in turn, led to contaminated drinking water, which sickened the people of Hinkley with cancer.
Protecting our environment should be our number one concern. Too often, it takes a back seat to money and profit. Cost benefit reports might show more profit by ignoring employees’ toxic chemical exposure or by secretly dumping waste into the environment. We make companies wish they hadn’t relied on those reports.
We’re just small enough to collaborate with each other on a day-to-day basis, but with more than 20 partners and associates, we are by no means a one-attorney shop. Over the years, we’ve won more than $10 billion in verdicts and settlements. We have the financial resources to handle the toughest, most complex personal injury cases in the world.
- Medical knowledge: After an accident, it can be difficult to understand the full extent of injuries. Right-hand numbness, for example, might mean a herniated disk. In turn, this means we ask for more compensation to cover treatment.
- Experienced trial lawyers: We often negotiate fair settlements early in a case because the other side knows we aren’t bluffing. But we also try cases in courtrooms in front of juries. Many of us have done more than 100 trials.
- Financial resources: It takes money to try a case properly. The more complicated the case, the more resources it takes. We have a wide range of experts to call on for testimony, and we have the resources to do things right.
In every case, we do all we can to help you. Below are a sample of the different types of personal injury cases we have experience in:
Personal injury is what we do at Girardi | Keese. If you’ve been injured, in nearly any type of situation, call 800-401-4530 or contact us online to learn more about us and how we can help you.
