O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing S.C. personal injury practice focuses on representing persons who have been seriously injured as a result of automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, medical malpractice, and product defects. We generally do not represent insurance companies in personal injury matters, only injured persons.
Our personal injury litigation team has been involved in some of the largest, most high profile personal injury cases in Wisconsin. For example, we represented former Milwaukee Brewer Randy Ready and his family in obtaining a $24.7 million verdict in 1990, which still stands as the largest medical malpractice verdict ever rendered in Wisconsin.
O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing’s personal injury litigation team has obtained many million dollar settlements and verdicts for injured clients, and has been repeatedly recognized for its outstanding work. Our attorneys have received awards for being one of the “Top 50 Super Lawyers” in Wisconsin, one of “Milwaukee’s Best Lawyers,” and a “Leader in the Law” as “represent[ing] some of the best from our legal community.” They have been called “very bright, hardworking and intense,” “brilliant, hard-working attorney[s] who have an impressive record,” attorneys “who have reached the heights of professional excellence,” and attorneys “of the highest standing in their profession.”
Our personal injury litigators have served on the faculty at law schools, are frequently invited speakers on personal injury and other legal issues at legal seminars, and regularly publish articles and book chapters on personal injury and other trial-related topics. We practice what we teach, and teach what we practice.
O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing’s personal injury litigation team is headed by Dean P. Laing, who is uniquely qualified to represent injured persons because of his family background. Because Dean has two brothers with cerebral palsy, he understands what families go through in caring for loved ones with special needs, and is able to communicate that message to insurance companies, defense counsel, and juries.
