Steven J. DeFrank is a Swift Currie partner with a diverse practice that includes matters related to insurance coverage, personal injury, tort liability, bad faith, arson, breach of contract, fraud and premises liability. He represents both companies and individuals.
Steven is a strong communicator who strives to give all of his clients the personal attention they deserve. He has experience with difficult negotiations where liability is clear and exposure is particularly high.
Because minimizing the likelihood of injuries is more important now than ever before, Steven also encourages and works with his clients to develop comprehensive risk management programs, code compliance resources and other preventative measures that can bring to light potential hazards. This enables his clients to address and eliminate possible safety risks up front at minimal expense, significantly reducing the potential for accidents that can lead to costly litigation.
Steven brings to his practice a strong medical background. His master's degree in biomechanics and previous work at a hospital rehabilitation center allow him to analyze claims involving injuries with greater efficiency, and provides him with an understanding of what treatments affecting overall exposure are – and are not – necessary. He also depends on this background when deposing medical professionals.
