Expertise. Leadership. Compassion. Results.

Our attorneys have helped thousands of victims of accidents and injuries caused by catastrophic vehicular and trucking accidents, oil field explosions, medical and hospital negligence, medical device and pharmaceutical design defects, and personal injuries caused by negligence and gross negligence. Our highly recognized attorneys take on multinational corporations every day and hold them accountable for their actions. We handle cases across the United States, and we are national leaders in both individual cases and mass torts. Our practice areas include IVC Filter Complications, Transvaginal Mesh, Surgical Staples, Dangerous Products, Wrongful Death & Catastrophic Injury and Medical Malpractice & Hospital Liability.

Over the past few years, our trial successes include multiple jury verdicts exceeding two million dollars against IVC filter manufacturers, including a record $3 million dollar verdict in a bellwether IVC filter case filed in the Cook Medical MDL in Indianapolis. This verdict, which at the time was largest actual damages award ever in any IVC filter case, was tried by a team of lawyers led by Ben C. Martin and Laura J. Baughman. The jury in Brand v. Cook Medical Inc. and William Cook Europe, found, for the first time, that a medical device company had defectively designed an IVC filter.'

Since then, our trial lawyers have won four jury trials against C. R. Bard, Inc. and Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc. (“Bard”), including a $3.3 million actual damages verdict that broke the previous record, also held by Martin Baughman lawyers, of the largest such award nationwide in an IVC filter case.

Martin Baughman’s trial successes are not limited to IVC filters; they include a wrongful death case tried in Dallas, Texas against a multi-billion dollar railroad company. In Rigsby v. Kansas City Southern Railway, a Dallas, Texas jury found the railroad responsible for the tragic death of a driver at a dangerous railroad crossing.

These verdicts represent but a small portion of the verdicts obtained by Martin Baughman lawyers through the years and are a telling indicator that the unfailing and dedicated work by the talented lawyers and staff at the firm make those results happen. Read about our dedicated and talented lawyers as you look through our website.

Our lawyers are national leaders in lawsuits involving thousands of victims. Ben C. Martin was appointed and serves as Co-lead counsel of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the Cook Medical IVC filter Multi-District Litigation pending in the Southern District of Indiana (where the Brand case was tried). Ben is also on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the Cordis IVC filter litigation and is co-lead counsel in coordinated litigation pending in Philadelphia against Rex Medical regarding its Option IVC filter. Laura Baughman serves on the Cordis IVC filter steering committee and is an integral part of trial teams in IVC filter and transvaginal mesh cases in federal and state courts across the country. Our lawyers and staff are the reasons for our successes at trial and at the settlement negotiation table.

We are leaders. We are compassionate. We obtain results. For these reasons, referring attorneys regularly entrust their clients and their cases to us. We are honored to serve each of our clients.
