Winner & Associates has handled many cases
involving brain injuries. These are often challenging cases,
given the complicated issues of causation and the seriousness
of the injuries typically involved.
In 2004 the firm won an $8.6 million
jury verdict (including $5 million in punitive damages)
on behalf of a brain-injured girl suffering from post-traumatic
epileptic seizures. The firm also recently negotiated a $700,000
settlement on behalf of a woman with a moderate brain injury
and post-traumatic stress syndrome. The firm has successfully
represented injured plaintiffs with many different types
of brain injuries, securing numerous settlements in the range
of $500,000 to $1 million.
Initial consultations are free. Nearly all of these cases
are handled on a contingent-fee basis, and the firm typically
advances the costs of the case. Often, Winner & Associates
will work with another law firm -- usually the referring
firm -- in handling the case. Winner & Associates worked
on all of the above-mentioned cases in that fashion.
Winner & Associates is selective in the cases it takes.
Once the firm decides to take a case, however, it holds nothing
back. The firm is thorough in its investigation, discovery,
and brief writing. Winner & Associates works with the best
expert witnesses, including neurologists and neuropsychologists,
to maximize the prospects of recovery. Every effort is made
to settle the cases before trial. The firm is experienced in
negotiation, mediation, and issues of insurance coverage. Some
cases cannot settle, however, and in those cases where a trial
is necessary, Winner & Associates litigates aggressively.
