We are counsel to major air carriers in federal multidistrict and state court litigation and damage trials arising out of domestic and foreign air carrier accidents. We also represent numerous commercial carriers in service or product failure and premises liability cases, defending businesses and individual employees at trial against claims alleging negligence, defective conditions, inadequate security, and failure to warn or correct. One of our trial attorneys is a municipal police academy graduate, has years of advance accident investigation and reconstruction training, and is qualified as an expert witness in accidents involving trains, trucks, buses and cars. A number of our trial lawyers are particularly skilled at defending premises liability claims involving personal injury or death, from simple slip and fall cases to claims reflecting robberies, assaults, shootings, and murders that occur on our clients' property.
Thompson & Knight trial lawyers represent manufacturers of airplanes, trucks, buses, trains, automobiles, and related components in national asbestos class action litigation and a variety of other service and product failure cases. For many years, our work has included toxic tort and product liability claims filed against an original equipment manufacturer of railroad car wheels, brakes, and brake shoes.
