North Dakota Severe Injury Law Firm
Oil Rigs. Big Rigs. And Big Cases.
From the catastrophic motorcycle injury, to the 18-wheeler collision, to
the gas line explosion, catastrophic injuries require focus. And focus
is a major reason that Marc Lenahan is the
best-reviewed injury attorney in North Dakota on AVVO.
Add to that, caring, expertise, resources and an extraordinary team, and
you'll see why we get better results for our clients more often.
With a Base Camp in Minot, or Bismarck, or Fargo, or anywhere else we need
to be, we have the ability to fight cases anywhere in North Dakota and
can can be where your case is best served. Our HQ is in Dallas, but for
severe injuries cases, we don't just go to where the case calls us,
we're there for you, geographically and personally.
Experience with Patch & Trucking Cases
Oil is a blessing and a curse. It brings jobs and hope. But it also brings
selfish & unsafe companies; drug-abuse; and exhausted, rushed &
inexperienced truckers driving poorly maintained vehicles by the thousands.
We know. We’ve been to ICUs and funerals for roughnecks and families
too many times. We’re from Texas, and we knew the hardships that
would befall North Dakota because they have been hitting people in Texas
And that is why the best rated injury attorney in Texas per AVVO, chose
to become the best rated injury attorney in North Dakota, too. And we
located our North Dakota Base Station in Minot because Minot’s Trinity
Hospital is verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level II
Trauma Center: the highest level of trauma care available in North Dakota.
The Lenahan Law Firm is very, very special. We are four attorneys, and
the Firm represents less than 40 cases for the entire firm -- that’s
less than 10 clients per lawyer -- though we actually work all of our
cases as a team. What’s so special about that? Isn’t that
how they all work? Not even close. Even most respected injury firms have
over 100 clients per lawyer. Not 100 in their firm, but PER LAWYER. And,
terribly, the injury firms people are most likely to know by name as a
result of mass advertising can have 600, 750, or even over 1,000 cases
PER LAWYER. Do they really think that their lawyers are 10 times, 60 times,
or 100 times smarter than the lawyers at the Lenahan Law Firm? How do
they think they can provide the same service or achieve the same results?
Our rare focus and intensive TLC has been the secret to success for our
clients. For years we have accepted clients from all over the world for
injuries anywhere in Texas. Now we get to serve those who have suffered
fatal or severe injuries that occur in North Dakota, too. Because of our
limited clientele, location doesn’t matter. For the terrible injuries
that deserve the kind of battle for justice that we are known for, we
go. Whether it be the southwest border of Texas and Mexico, or the northwest
border of North Dakota and Canada, it makes no difference to us.
And with many North Dakota injury cases meriting lawsuits against corporations
in headquartered in Texas, we can put your case in North Dakota or Texas
depending on what’s best for your case, not what’s best for us.
Fighting for Maximum Compensation is What We Do
We take pride in helping injured oilfield workers throughout North Dakota.
Below is a sampling of some of our past victories we've achieved on
behalf of former clients.
“One Riot, One Ranger.”
There is a famous Texas tale we love to tell. A version of the story goes
that there was a riot brewing, and the local official called the Governor
for help. But just one Texas Ranger came. When the official saw him, he
complained, “Just you? Where is everybody else?” The Texas
Ranger responded, “One riot, one Ranger.”
Major oil and trucking injury cases can feel very much like a riot. It
is very common for your lawyers to face between three and twenty other
attorneys. One severe injury case, one Texas law firm.
Marc is a North Dakota attorney and a Texas attorney. But he has also secured
notable results under the laws of states to include Florida, Michigan,
New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and has represented clients in China,
France, Mexico & England. (And now that we’re representing “Project
Safe Childhood” clients nationwide, there aren’t too many
Federal Courts in the nation where we haven’t represented a client.)
But when you make Marc Lenahan your lawyer, you get the entire Lenahan
Law Firm. A team of hand-picked attorneys unlike any we are aware of in
Marc Lenahan: The best reviewed Avvo personal injury attorney in North Dakota and Texas
Kathleen Kearney: An attorney who is also a registered nurse and nurse practitioner board
certified in pediatrics, and who also teaches for a prominent University
Wes Black: A former defense attorney who is board certified in civil appellate law
Nathan Barbera: A 15-year veteran of litigating for insurance companies who managed a
state-wide insurance defense firm
Two Things You Need to Know About the Money
First, we have NEVER asked a client to write us a check. Ever. We ONLY
get paid from the money we secure for you, if any. The technical phrase
for this is, “Contingency fee plus court costs and expenses.”
That means we agree on a percentage in advance, and also get reimburse
for the money we invest for you. The amount of money we invest can be
modest at a few hundred bucks, or very substantial. We recently spent
over $300,000 on a case for a wonderful family, and closed the case for
Second, does having our headquarters in Texas make the case more expensive?
It can, but it is very hard to know in advance. The truth is that where
an injury occurs doesn’t tell us much about where the case is most
wisely fought. In other words, hiring a law firm across the street can
trigger more travel costs than hiring one in Miami. Oil companies and
trucking companies are everywhere, with a disproportionate share of them
in our neck of the woods.
And we NEVER include the costs of coming to meet you in the amount to be
reimbursed. That is purely out investment. And as we often try to investigate
the scene before we even come to your hospital bed or kitchen table, we
don’t include those costs, either.
But it does mean that we really can’t ever justify representing clients
who do not have severe injuries, but we don’t do that in Texas,
so there really isn’t much of a difference.
And if we decide that your case is more wisely handled by friends of ours
in North Dakota, we’ll tell you. Even better, if you want us to
serve as “joint venture counsel” with a local law firm, that
means that, for no extra fees to you, we get to work with the local lawyer
and we can both be available to you for consultation.
The sooner you contact us, the better armed we can be to help you. Evidence
is crucial. The other side is already collecting it. We need to, too.
We’ll come to the hospital, we’ll walk the highway, we’ll
follow the plywood signs to the patch. We want to understand the evidence
right away. Let us.
