Decades of Experience Representing Personal Injury Plaintiffs
For decades, we have fought for the rights of injured victims and their families. Founding attorneys Jerrold S. Parker and Herbert L. Waichman have been involved in ground-breaking personal injury litigation since the 1980s, including the landmark 1984 case showing that AIDS is transmitted via blood transfusion for the first time in a United States court. The firm represented numerous clients in litigation involving infamous products such as asbestos, and the weight loss drug “Fen-Phen”.
Throughout the years, Parker Waichman has kept up-to-date with the most current issues in personal injury litigation and remains focused on public health and consumer safety. We regularly review medical studies, regulatory updates, and other safety news.
Experience in All Types of Personal Injury Litigation
Personal injury litigation encompasses a wide variety of lawsuits and situations. Our firm has vast experience representing clients in many different types of injury claims, whether it be a slip and fall lawsuit, medical device injury lawsuit, drug side effect lawsuit, product defect lawsuit, nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuit, environmental or occupational hazard lawsuit, and other injury claims.
The firm has experience representing clients in both individual personal injury lawsuits and class action product liability lawsuits. We are regularly involved in large mass torts, including federal multidistrict litigations (MDLs) involving drugs and medical devices.
Parker Waichman Attorneys have Leadership Roles
Our firm has held a number of leadership roles in large, product liability litigations. Parker Waichman attorneys have been appointed to various Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees. Founding attorney Jerrold S. Parker, for example, has held leadership roles in Plaintiff’s Steering Committees involving injury claims from transvaginal mesh, Actos, and DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants, to name just a few.
The firm is also proud to have stood alongside 9/11 responders and survivors in helping to gain passage for the Zadroga Act, its amendments, and its reauthorization in late 2015. We continue to fight for the rights of 9/11 heroes as well as those who lived and worked in lower Manhattan on 9/11 and in the months afterward.
Billions of Dollars Recovered
A personal injury attorney’s experience is often demonstrated through their results. We have obtained large verdicts and settlements for our plaintiffs, who pursue litigation to obtain justice and compensation for their injuries. While money may not be able to make up for a traumatic experience, permanent disability, or loss of a loved one, it can help alleviate the financial burden of medical bills and lost wages.
We have obtained billions in settlements and verdicts for our plaintiffs. To give just one example, our firm obtained a settlement of $10 million on behalf of a Canadian family injured in a horrific car accident in upstate New York. The settlement was reported to be one of the largest settlements in New York State history with a projected pay-out of $76 million.
