Catastrophic Loss

The accidental loss of a life, catastrophic personal injury, or property damage is tragic. When those losses are sustained, through explosion, chemical leak, product use or misuse, or other circumstances, many potentially responsible businesses and their insurers retain Holden & Montejano to protect their reputation, defend, and advocate for them and, if warranted, resolve those actions fairly and reasonably.

Our attorneys have handled hundreds of cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury or property damage in state and federal courts throughout the country. The firm's attorneys have represented utilities, product manufacturers, chemical companies, transportation companies, land owners and insurers in explosions, construction accidents, product liability actions, wrongful death suits, paralysis claims, and other personal injury matters involving catastrophic loss. These matters require experienced and aggressive counsel to provide complex case management, coordination of early and thorough investigation of the accident scene, the products, the witnesses and response teams, retention of scientists, engineers, reconstruction and failure analysts, or cause and origin experts, significant document review and production, sophisticated analysis, and sometimes multi-jurisdictional and multi-party litigation. In fact, we maintain a rapid response team on call for all types of catastrophic losses available to our clients 24/7/365

Our attorneys recognize that the adversary process is a time-consuming and expensive drain on a business' resources and diversion of management's attention from operations, growth, and achievement of other important corporate objectives. Bearing this in mind, they engage in early and continuous assessment, designed to advise the client whether to reach resolution through settlement or discovery and trial of the case. Either way, the firm's trial attorneys use their considerable advocacy skills and experience to achieve the most successful result in a cost-effective and time-conscious manner.
