Martin Brigham has devoted his 35-year legal career to representing victims of unsafe products and of corporate negligence, with a particular interest in promoting workplace safety. His talent in the area of products liability has, each year, been recognized by Best Lawyers in America, the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, and SuperLawyers, and he was the only Philadelphia plaintiff’s attorney selected by corporate and insurance counsel for listing in the “World’s Leading Product Liability Lawyers.”
As lead trial counsel in scores of cases, he’s recovered millions to tens of millions of dollars for his clients and their families. Most notably, Mr. Brigham was asked in 2009 to head the international team of attorneys representing the passengers involved in the crash of the helicopter Sikorsky S-92 into the North Atlantic, off of Newfoundland, when 15 of those passengers were killed and one survived. Less than a year after the accident, every client’s case was resolved for an amount—made confidential to protect the clients—that ensured their financial security and honored those they had lost.
Mr. Brigham also is nationally recognized for his pioneering work in the production of video-settlement brochures, and has prepared more than a hundred video presentations of his client’s cases. In addition, he directs the firm’s in-house video production facility. Mr. Brigham also serves on the Board of Trustees for YouthBuild Philadelphia, an alternative high school for at-risk youth who had dropped out of school.
