Personal Injury Defense
Our personal injury defense practice draws on Baker Sterchi’s talented attorneys and professional support staff with knowledge in medicine, healthcare and technology. With razor-sharp analytical skills, our teams are experienced handling a range of cases, from small matters to multi-million dollar matters on behalf of Fortune 100 companies.
We represent individual professionals and businesses in the health care, pharmaceutical, medical device, construction, aviation, maritime, and retail industries in defense of a wide range of claims, including accident, injury and wrongful death. We handle commercial airline accidents, construction site accidents, environmental incidents, Jones Act suits, medical malpractice cases, pharmaceutical and medical device liability, premises liability, product liability and toxic torts.
We have particular experience with high-exposure cases in which plaintiffs are seeking multi-million dollar awards, including punitive or exemplary damages. Baker Sterchi attorneys are recognized nationally for their product liability practice. We often handle class action and multidistrict litigation.
With medical professionals on staff, and with decades of experience handling cases related in some way to healthcare, we are especially skilled at parsing complicated medical information and the nuances associated with patient care and the practice of modern medicine.
Baker Sterchi counts cost efficiency as one its hallmarks. Working closely with clients to assess their goals, we establish a strategy early in the litigation process, and are skilled at handling settlement negotiations, arbitration and mediation in addition to trial.
We use state-of-the art electronic discovery techniques to cut down on the time and cost of the document review process.
Baker Sterchi attorneys have been recognized in Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers in the area of personal injury defense. In addition, some of our attorneys have conducted CLE and CE seminars on issues related to the defense of personal injury claims.
