Wrongful Death and Serious Personal Injury

When a tragedy occurs, we help families get justice

RPWB’s personal injury and wrongful death lawyers have decades of experience helping families when a loved one is killed or seriously injured due to defective products, unsafe premises or because of the negligence or malice of another person or company. We know that money can’t bring someone back or heal wounds, but it helps to cover immediate needs and build a financial foundation for the future.

You won’t see our firm on tv advertisements or on billboards, but you will find us in courtrooms throughout the country fighting for justice on behalf of those who were killed or seriously injured through no fault of their own. We are respected by peers and adversaries alike for our work on complex personal injury and wrongful death cases. We do not treat you like a number nor do we utilize a cookie-cutter approach. Every case is different. Every family’s circumstances are unique. We will work with you to create an individual course of action that respects your wishes and needs.

Typically, in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, the law affords compensation to cover medical expenses, long-term care needs and compensation for lost wages. It also allows punitive awards that take into account the negligence or malice of the at-fault party.

Our attorneys have been helping victims and their families for more than 40 years and have the resources and skill to effectively litigate the most complicated of cases. RPWB was named a 2021 Best Law Firm by U.S. News & World Report in the areas of products liability and personal injury litigation.

There are no upfront costs and you only pay legal fees and expenses if we are successful on your behalf.

We recently represented a man killed when a concrete truck exploded at a South Carolina highway project.

Exploding Gas Cans & Other Burn Injuries
RPWB has represented many people who were burned by defective products, including gas cans, deep fryers and gas grills. This included more than 50 people who were hurt or killed by exploding gas cans. One group of clients received more than $60 million from Blitz U.S.A, Inc., and Walmart as a part of a settlement in the Blitz U.S.A., Inc. bankruptcy.

Air Crash at Charlotte International Airport
In 2003, an Air Midwest turboprop plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Charlotte/Douglass International Airport, killing all 21 people abroad. RPWB served as the plaintiff’s liaison counsel in the wrongful death lawsuits filed by surviving family members.

Truck wrecks
RPWB has a strong reputation for litigating truck wrecks against drivers, vehicle owners, insurance companies and vehicle manufacturers. We have represented individuals who were killed or suffered severe injuries in truck accidents, including vehicle defect cases involving unguarded sidesaddle fuel tanks and those injured by trucks with insufficient roof support.

Graniteville Train Crash
On January 6, 2005, two Norfolk Southern trains collided in Graniteville, South Carolina, setting off a chain of events that led to the deaths of nine people and injuries to at least 250 others. RPWB lawyers represented many of those hurt or killed as a result of the collision.
