He is involved in all aspects of trial court practice and appeals for clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 500 corporations. Ryan has tried bench and jury trials in state and federal court, and regularly appears before administrative agencies.

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
