Karl Long represents people who have been injured because of another's actions. His practice includes product liability, passenger bus accidents, premises liability, construction accidents, and workplace injuries. Most of these cases involve catastrophic injuries and/or claims for wrongful death. Many of Karl's cases involve automotive and tire defects, a skillset he honed while representing tire manufacturers and retailers. His experience representing defendant manufacturers provides insight into not only what evidence is necessary to prove a case, but also into understanding how these defendants think.
