Erik Walker, Lead Attorney, Mass Torts & Appeals
Erik Walker is a highly experienced and battle-tested injury attorney.
He has won hundreds of court verdicts and appeals, and secured many multi-million dollar settlements for his clients. He has fought off appeals by those who injured his clients, and had many favorable verdicts upheld by the court.
Erik is considered one of the premiere mass tort attorneys in the country
Mass torts are a type of civil lawsuit in which many different people were all hurt by the same person or company in the same way. For example, pharmaceutical manufacturers may release a dangerous product without sufficient warning, and many consumers of the product may be hurt.
Such cases are large and require a steering committee to supervise and manage all the different injured victims and lawsuits. Judges appoint the committee members, and participating is an enormous responsibility, requiring someone skilled, knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Erik’s skills and competence have been recognized by many judges and attorneys in the mass tort community, and he is frequently chosen by other injury attorneys and judges to serve on plaintiff steering committees.
In addition, when other personal injury attorneys have a difficult case or are in a challenging position, Erik is often brought in as a hired gun to save the case.
You won’t find a more determined and unwavering personal injury attorney, in Austin or anywhere. We are proud to have him on our team, and lucky he fights for our clients (instead of the other side!)
