Winner & Associates has successfully handled many
cases representing individual plaintiffs injured by dangerous
and defective products. These are often challenging cases,
given the complicated engineering and design issues involved.
In 2004 the firm won an $8.6 million jury
verdict, which included $5 million in punitive damages,
on behalf of a girl who was injured when a defectively designed
school cafeteria folding table fell on her, causing brain
damage. The firm has successfully represented injured plaintiffs
in a broad variety of product liability cases.
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 is selective in
the product liability 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 mechanical
engineers, human factors experts, and medical experts 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
