Liam Duffy Presents at SC Bar Seminar on Secrets to a Successful Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Practice
Yarborough Applegate’s Liam Duffy was invited to speak on October 16, 2020 at the South Carolina Bar CLE Division’s annual “Secrets to a Successful Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Practice” seminar in Columbia. The slate of speakers included several of the top plaintiff’s trial attorneys from across South Carolina and the southeast.
A personal injury attorney and trial lawyer, Duffy spoke on maximizing third-party workplace injury claims. His talk provided attendees with practical tips for spotting these kinds of cases, working them up aggressively to improve results, and ultimately trying them to a jury. Duffy cited a number of Yarborough Applegate cases, including his recent $21 million wrongful death verdict, as examples of third-party workplace injury cases in which the firm was able to achieve favorable results.
“In many cases, when someone is hurt at work their sole remedy is the workers compensation system, which is often inadequate if the injuries are catastrophic,” said Duffy. “That’s why it’s critical to explore and maximize all avenues of recovery, especially when the harm is caused by a third party’s negligence.”
