In just the last five years, the attorneys of Ross Feller Casey have won $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for their catastrophically injured clients. The remarkable record includes numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries in workplace injury lawsuits in Philadelphia, throughout Pennsylvania and beyond.
Founding partner Matt Casey recently recovered $19.5 million for a masonry company truck driver who was paralyzed after a faulty crane lifting 3,500 pounds of concrete block split in two, striking him on the head (read about this case).
Casey, a leading Philadelphia work injury lawyer, also headed the investigation that resulted in a remarkable $36.4 million recovery for the family of a man who was killed in an oil refinery explosion. Casey’s work revealed that a corroded tank had leaked hydrogen, that this hydrogen was the source of the explosion and that the refinery had been aware of the inherent danger. It remains among the largest single-victim settlements ever for a wrongful death case in the U.S. (read about this case).
Casey also obtained a $10 million settlement in a workplace injury lawsuit involving a 40-year-old Bucks County, Pennsylvania welder who was killed when a pressurized tank exploded. It is one of the largest recoveries ever reported for a lawsuit of its kind involving a single death in Pennsylvania (read about this case).
Each year, nearly 4 million workers are injured on job sites across the U.S. and, tragically, about 4,500 die from those workplace injuries, according to government statistics. Employers have a responsibility to ensure not only a safe workplace but also that equipment meets government-set safety standards.
Founding partner Robert Ross has successfully litigated a long list of catastrophic workplace injury cases, many of them involving loss of limbs.
In one such Pennsylvania work injury lawsuit filed in federal court, Ross secured a $4 million recovery on behalf of a machinist who was pulled into a grinding machine at a factory.
Other notable victories by Ross Feller Casey work injury attorneys include:
While slip and fall accidents are the most common cause of injury in a work setting, other unsafe conditions such as loose or faulty scaffolding, or improper operation of cranes, winches, bulldozers, forklifts and other equipment can result in severe injuries.
Workers injured on the job across the U.S. are often told that the only compensation they can receive under government rules comes from their employer’s workers' compensation insurance.
In many cases, this is true. But there are often exceptions, and the experienced construction and workplace injury lawyers at Ross Feller Casey have built an impressive record of success in finding them.
