This marks the first year of Lawdragon recognition for the two experienced lawyers, who have built reputations based on high-profile verdicts and settlements on behalf of individuals harmed by defective tires and automotive products and general personal injury litigation.
The Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers is committed to researching attorneys nominated by their peers who strive to fight for justice for those facing life-altering problems. Lawdragon describes the attorneys named as those who “stand up against the worst, seeking justice and providing hope.”
Earlier this year, Mr. Ball and Mr. Farrar were recognized as “Plaintiffs’ Trailblazers” by editors at the National Law Journal.
Recent successes include a closely watched precedent-setting product defect victory at the U.S. Supreme Court in Bandemer v. Ford. Also in 2021, the two were part of a Kaster, Lynch, Farrar & Ball litigation team that preserved an earlier $7.2 million wrongful death trial verdict for the family of a man who was killed when a defective Goodyear G182 tire suddenly exploded.
