Our personal injury defense practice draws on BSCR’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 cases to multi-million dollar mass torts on behalf of Fortune 100 companies.
We represent individual professionals and businesses in the health care, pharmaceutical and medical device, construction, aviation, 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, 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 the plaintiffs are seeking damages awards, including punitive or exemplary damages. BSCR 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.
BSCR 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.
BSCR 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 seminars on issues related to the defense of personal injury claims.
