Personal Injury
Injuries caused by a serious accident or medical malpractice have far reaching consequences. Injured victims endure extraordinary pain, lost income, mounting medical bills and stress that not only causes suffering for the injured victim, but also their family.

Companies and individuals who must defend against personal injury lawsuits face their own challenges associated with claims of serious personal injury, especially when their insurance company threatens to disclaim coverage.

Ryan has extensive experience representing injured victims as well as companies and individuals that have been wrongfully blamed for negligence. Having such a balanced understanding gives Ryan prospective when fighting for his clients.

Most lawyers actually fear going to trial. Convincing every client into a settlement may be easy and profitable for some lawyers but that is not the way Ryan practices law. While a fair settlement is the preferred method of resolving disputes, Ryan meticulously prepares each case as if it was going to trial, and is not afraid to bring a case to trial if his opponent is unreasonable. Such an approach leads to better results for Ryan’s clients.

Ryan has litigated the following types of personal injury claims:

• Automobile accidents

• Trucking accidents

• Motorcycle accidents

• Medical malpractice

• Birth injuries

• Nursing home abuse and neglect

• Wrongful death

• Traumatic brain injuries

• Product liability

• Defective products

• Workplace injuries

• Construction accidents (Labor Law 200, 240, and 241)

• Premises liability

• Slip and falls

• Ice and snow-related injuries

• Boating accidents

• Insurance coverage disputes

Trucking Accidents

When a tractor-trailer is involved in an accident it is likely that the result is a devastating personal injury and/or wrongful death. Ryan has handled dozens of high exposure trucking accidents involving catastrophic injuries and understands the unique challenges associated with such claims, such as:

•Trucking records and logs

• On-scene investigation

• Black box data recovery

• Negligent hiring and supervision claims

• Negligent maintenance claims

• Overlapping insurance coverage disputes

• Government regulations

• Drug testing

• Tractor maintenance

    About Client Rating
    About Peer Rating

    Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

    Determining a Rating

    The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

    • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
    • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
    • 1-2.9 Rated

    Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

    The Reviewers

    Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


    Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

    Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

    Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

    Martindale-Hubbell's role

    Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

    It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
