Bob Krause has tried numerous cases throughout the United States. He has represented clients injured or killed as a result of defects in tires, defects in automobile design, medical malpractice, industrial explosions and auto/trucking collisions. He recently spoke about discovery in trucking cases at the American Association of Justice convention in Maui.
Recently, he settled a case involving a tire repairman who was severely injured when a forklift wheel exploded while he was attempting to repair the tire. The wheel shattered his face and caused extensive brain damage. The settlement will ensure that the client receives lifetime medical care and that there is enough money to provide for his needs.
Currently, he is representing the families of two people who died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning. Our investigation shows that the heating repairman failed to properly service the gas heater which resulted in the accumulation of lethal levels of carbon monoxide in the house. Bob is also representing the family of a man who was killed in a sudden acceleration accident in a 2008 Toyota Camry. The driver slammed on the brakes but the Toyota Camry did not stop. U.S. District Judge James V. Selna has set the Van Alfen’s sudden-acceleration case against Toyota Motor Corp. for trial in February 2013, as the first bellwether trial against Toyota for a sudden acceleration like this one.
