School Injury and Death Law

SCHOOL INJURY AND DEATH LAW

We have successfully resolved – via settlement or trial – numerous cases involving traumatic injuries and death.  Over the past quarter-century of practice, this has included serious automobile accidents, catastrophic injuries due to unsafe premises, construction accidents, child pornography and sexual assault, fraternity violence, fraternity rape, fraternity hazing and other tragedies caused by the negligence of others.  We negotiated the historic, complex settlement on behalf of 20 families/clients who suffered the loss of a loved one or traumatic gunshot injuries as a result of the April 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech. As to our abilities, John McCammon, founder of The McCammon Group and mediator of the settlement, described our work as “stellar.  You have served your clients so well and at the same time distinguished yourselves as first class, effective, efficient, practical and collaborative attorneys who know how to deal with the big issues. While tough on substance, you were smooth on style. That is a difficult combination to pull off.”

“Thank you for bringing me hope, for swooping in and offering to help when I thought my heart couldn’t take any more hurt. Thank you for helping me believe that my heart won’t always be broken and that some good may still come from my suffering.”

DOUGLAS FIERBERG REPRESENTED THE FAMILY OF MICHAEL DENG, AN ISSUE FEATURED ACROSS MAJOR NEWS PROVIDERS SUCH AS ABC’S GOOD MORNING AMERICA, THE NEW YORK TIMES, AND USA TODAY

“I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU HOW GRATEFUL I AM THAT YOU, DOUG, CHRIS AND KAREN STUCK BY MY SIDE FOR TWO YEARS STRONG. SUCH A BURDEN HAS BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS ONCE WE MADE THE FINAL DEAL TODAY. TO SAY THAT I AM GRATEFUL AND SO APPRECIATIVE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.”
