His talent in the area of products liability has every year been recognized by Best Lawyers in America, the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, and SuperLawyers.

Mr. Brigham led the international team of attorneys representing the passengers aboard a Sikorsky S-92 helicopter that crashed into the North Atlantic off of Newfoundland. Fifteen 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 is regularly asked to become lead attorney in cases focused on a large corporation’s systemic failure to follow its own safety rules that results in devastating injuries or death. He regularly speaks and publishes on product safety. He was the lead author of Injured on the Job, published by the Philadelphia Area Project of Occupational Safety and Health (PhilaPOSH), which has honored Mr. Brigham for his lifetime commitment to promoting workplace safety.

Go Global for Stronger Safety Claims

"Manufacturers of workplace products often hide behind weak U.S. safety standards to avoid liability for injuries. More stringent international safety standards can show what the manufacturer should have done to prevent your client’s injury."
