The Lenahan Law Firm wants you to rest assured of our experience in certain types of cases, so we've provided some examples that may overlap with your case. But the point we really want to make clear is that, no matter what kind of severe injury case you have, our experience is real and we are ready to stand with you.
For several of these cases, there is a bit of extra information explaining why it is that we think the Client benefited from what we're calling, "the Lenahan Difference." Though there are cases when there won't be much difference in the bottom line between hiring us and hiring another highly respected severe injury law firm we've come to believe that, most of the time, there is. Where there is a mention of "the Lenahan Difference," you'll see a quick example of why we were able to provide a better result for the Client than would have ordinarily occurred.
$10,004,323 Recovered ($4,029,590 in fees & expenses) in DWI Wrongful Death:
Don't be deceived. Don't miss the opportunity to save lives. Many, many firms' list of "results" include million dollar, and even multi-million dollar, results. But those can be deceiving. It is very common for that money to be completely uncollectiable. In other words, the Judge said "The Defendant owes the Plaintiff $43 million," but the Defendant wasn't even at the Hearing and will never acually pay the Plaintiff a penny. Sometimes it is decribed a "Judgment" or "Verdict" -- so it sure sound very official. But the truth is, it is meaningless paper. But when the Lenahan Law Firm recovered $10,004,323 in a DWI wrongful death case, that was money actually paid. No illusions. And, more importantly, the case resulted in changes that made us all safer.
The Lenahan Difference: The $10,004,323 is actual money. The results we strive for make a real difference for our clients, and a real difference in the world.
$6,504,961 Recovered ($2,738,046 in fees & expenses) in Wrongful Death:

The Client suffered a terribly injured leg in a pedestrian injury. Most lawyers would have thought that recovering more than a $1,000,000 was impossible, and would have offered to settle for that.
The Lenahan Difference: We didn't.

The Lenahan Difference: During trial, the Judge stopped Mr. Lenahan's examination of one of his clients to permit the Jury to take a break so that they could stop crying.
