Max Kennerly has devoted the past ten years of his law practice to helping seriously injured people recover fair compensation. As a medical malpractice lawyer, he has successfully handled a wide variety of claims at trial and in settlement, including cerebral palsy lawsuits, spinal surgery mistakes, and gallbladder surgery errors.
As a defective product lawyer, Mr. Kennerly has handled cases against medical device manufacturers, drug injury lawsuits, claims against automobile manufacturers, and cases against sellers of unsafe sports equipment. He also has been appointed by courts to serve on the plaintiffs steering committee in nationwide drug lawsuits.
As a result of his experience and his extensive body of legal writing, Mr. Kennerly is often sought after to give presentations and to speak to journalists about ongoing legal issues, including publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, Reuters, and Forbes. In 2016, he was invited to Capitol Hill to debate federal preemption of drug injury lawsuits in front of an audience of Congressional staffers, and then again in front of an audience of judges.
At Kennerly Loutey, a firm that Mr. Kennerly founded, the focus is on quality over quantity. Lawsuits involving permanent and disabling injuries, like traumatic brain injury or spinal cord paralysis, require focus, persistence, and resources. Many law firms work off a "volume" model, where they handle as many cases as they can across many different fields and many different levels of damages. The same lawyer handling a wrongful death case may also be handling several soft tissue car accident cases. At Kennerly Loutey, the focus in maintained on a much smaller number of catastrophic injury lawsuits, to ensure that each lawsuit gets the attention it needs.
