The defense of personal injury and wrongful death claims is one of the core strengths of our Litigation Group. Our Personal Injury Defense Litigation Practice consists of accomplished trial attorneys, many of whom are listed in The Best Lawyers in America© and Super Lawyers.® We are also proud to have a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers within our ranks.
Our attorneys regularly appear in state and federal trial and appellate courts on a broad range of cases, including workplace injuries, New York State Labor Law §§ 240(1) and 241(6) matters, premises liability claims, and motor vehicle accidents. We have a wealth of trial and appellate experience derived over years of successfully handling innumerable cases. This experience is continually passed on to the next generation of Phillips Lytle trial attorneys through partner-associate mentoring and our top-notch in-house Continuing Legal Education program.
Phillips Lytle trial attorneys are committed to achieving the best results in an efficient, pragmatic and cost-effective manner. Be it winning summary judgment or other dispositive motions, obtaining voluntary dismissals of the claims against our clients, securing indemnification for our clients, or trying cases to winning verdicts, we are focused on efficiently accomplishing our clients’ objectives. As a result of our achievements and our reputation for delivering the highest level of legal representation, we are the choice of a number of FORTUNE 500, FORTUNE Global 500 and national companies, as well as regional and local corporations for the defense of personal injury matters. Notable clients include DuPont, Occidental Chemical Corporation, Chemours, and Ford Motor Credit Company.
