Richard Vollertsen photoMr. Vollertsen's representative cases include cases that have demanded extraordinary litigation efforts because of their scientific or medical complexities. As the result of his dedication and the support of the Alaska Personal Injury Group, he has obtained remarkable verdicts and settlements in such matters. He is particularly proud of overturning on appeal the law that barred parents from receiving any compensation for their emotional losses when their children were killed. Gillespie v. Beta Construction ($4 million) He also obtained the first verdict in the nation against an ephedra manufacturer, including a punitive damages award that was one of the largest in Alaska's history. That verdict also led to the FDA's confiscation of the manufacturer's product, and contributed to the FDA's removal of that class of products from the marketplace. Talbot v. E'ola Products, Inc. ($13 million) He has been honored to represent many clients who have suffered the devastating consequences of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. He has consequently developed an expertise in handling such medically complex claims and routinely works with nationally-recognized physicians as experts in claims brought on behalf of his clients.
