What's new at Anapol Schwartz attorneys at law?

Anapol Schwartz is pleased to announce our merger with Coben & Associates, and welcome Larry Coben as shareholder to complement our extensive personal injury practice and our well-established mass tort practice.

Coben is nationally known for handling brain and spinal cord injury cases, with a special emphasis on helmet failure and crashworthiness, including seat belt and seat back failures, as well as air bag deployment failure, ejection and sudden acceleration.

The recipient of the American Association for Justice’s 2010 Consumer Advocacy award, Coben has obtained numerous seven- and eight-figure verdicts and settlements nationwide, including a $26 million verdict for a woman rendered a quadriplegic in a motor vehicle accident involving a seat failure, and a $12 million verdict for a high school football player who became a quadriplegic due to the defective design of his helmet.

He also achieved a $10.2 million verdict against Volkswagen on behalf of a Bucks County high school student who was injured as a result of her car’s defectively designed rear seat system, and a $30 million verdict in Gloucester County for a man rendered a quadriplegic due to a faulty airbag design. He is the author of “Crashworthiness Litigation,” a guide providing tactics for prosecuting such cases.

Two associates joining from Coben’s previous firm will practice out of Anapol Schwartz’s new office in Scottsdale, Ariz.

U.S. News & World Report ranked Anapol Schwartz among the best law firms in the Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions-Plaintiffs category. The ranking was based on results from an industry survey; view the methodology.

Anapol Schwartz works tirelessly to ensure that drug manufacturers are held accountable for their defective products, and we’ve earned a national reputation for handling complex, high profile pharmaceutical liability cases and medical device cases.. Some of our past successes have included settlements for deaths and injuries caused by Fen-Phen, Baycol, Vioxx and other dangerous prescription drugs. In the past several months, we’ve been actively pursuing claims surrounding the HPV vaccine Gardasil, and prescription drugs Fosamax, Yaz/Yasmin and Zocor, as well as medical devices such as DePuy Orthopaedics’ defective ASR Acetabular Hip.
