Overview

Occupational, industrial and transportation accidents resulting in personal injury or wrongful death unfortunately take place every day. When these events occur, privately- and publicly-held companies depend on Munsch Hardt’s seasoned team of trial attorneys to develop effective strategies of defenses.

With more than 30 years of experience and hundreds of successes before state and federal courts throughout Texas, we understand what it takes to represent our clients in these situations – we understand the applicable statutes, the relevant standards of care and the injury-related damage models. When appropriate, our team also advocates for our clients’ interests through settlements, mediation and/or arbitration proceedings.

Our team members offer experience representing notable corporations such as Genie Industries, Dollar General, Waste Management, ExxonMobil, Coach USA, Georgia Pacific, Terex Corporation, Loomis Armored, Oil States, Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. and many others in death cases. Recently, the team received a take nothing verdict for CPChem in a serious death case in Duval County. 

Other types of cases in which we defend our clients involve the following:

  • Premises liability
  • Brain damage
  • Construction accidents
  • Mesothelioma
  • Oilfield accidents
  • Criminal assault
  • Products liability 
  • Industrial injuries, including severe burns and electrocution

Our team of attorneys have dedicated the majority of their careers to defending companies against personal injury and wrongful death cases. As true experts in their field, they serve as faculty members of the IADC Trial Academy, TADC Trial Academy and the Texas College of Trial Advocacy. Their first-chair experience enables them to minimize litigation costs and maximize the probability of a successful outcome for our clients every time.
