Personal Injury And Products Liability

KDG's personal injury and products liability litigation team has carved out a national reputation, winning multimillion-dollar verdicts and achieving successful settlements for clients in a wide variety of major products liability and tort cases. We take on large companies to make products safer and protect the rights of people seriously injured in accidents. We've gone up against companies like Ford, General Motors, Volkswagen, Toyota, Honda, British Petroleum, TradeWinds, A.H. Robins, GE, Chrysler and Boswell Land Company — and we've won. We also take on insurance bad faith cases, fighting large insurance companies who wrongly deny death benefits to surviving family members.

KDG always welcomes the opportunity to discuss referrals, co-counsel arrangements and joint ventures.
