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.
