Dothan Alabama Personal Injury and Accident Lawyers David Hogg and Aaron Gartlan of the Gartlan Injury Law recently entered a confidential settlement at mediation in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against a large corporation on behalf of the family of a deceased worker that was killed in an industrial accident.

In this case, the lawsuit was filed, as soon as possible, in order to preserve evidence and exercise the subpoena power of the court. A consulting engineer was retained, and an investigator was utilized to help prepare the case. Discovery was conducted, which generated a large volume of documents and included taking the deposition of key witnesses. The Gartlan Injury Law then conducted a mock trial focus group. This was all done to prepare the case for trial, in an effort to prove and demonstrate liability, strategize injury and damage claims, overcome defenses, add value to the case, maximize recovery and address unsafe work conditions to make the community safer.

The Gartlan Injury Law is honored to have had the privilege of helping this family and proud that changes were made at the facility to make a safer workplace.
