The typical accident victim is in a David v. Goliath situation. A person gets injured and to receive fair compensation has to go up against the unlimited resources of municipalities, insurance companies and large corporations. Often accident victims feel overwhelmed and are in desperate need of good advice and help when they are at their weakest. When asked by his kids what he does for a living, David says, “I fight for people who cannot fight for themselves.” He has spent his career fighting for those people who have had their lives devastated by the negligence of others, victims who have had loved ones injured, their civil rights trampled upon and have had deaths in their families that could have been avoided by simple precautions taken by the wrongdoers, corporations or municipalities.
In 1993 he was asked to take over the law practice of Herbert Gordon, an attorney who had passed away, based on his reputation for honesty and hard work. Then again in 1998 shortly after partnering up with his wife Audra Roth he was asked to take over the practice of Stanley Roy Root, who had taken ill. The clients of both these outstanding lawyers formed the core of our client base and remain loyal to us to this day.
David Roth has been litigating cases involving all areas of personal injury on behalf of plaintiffs for approximately 20 years. Recently his practice has concentrated on complicated municipal liability as well as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other significant injury cases.
