Most Memorable Case


My client was seriously injured while performing routine maintenance work on a defective drilling rig, and we achieved a nearly $1.5 million jury verdict on his behalf. Why was this a memorable case? It was a “David v. Goliath” type of situation. The defendant – Ingersoll Rand – was a huge global corporation and had many more resources than the plaintiff, but we were able to fight for justice and prevail. – Thomas Luneau

“CaseyGerry has a reputation in the legal community built on our successes and history,” says partner Tom Luneau. In fact, he says, “we often get referrals from the attorneys we go up against in court.”

With a legal career spanning three decades, Tom has had his share of formidable opponents in the courtroom over the years. He started his career as state-licensed private investigator, joining CaseyGerry in 1982 as a staff investigator.

Now a talented litigator who has prosecuted many complex cases, he focuses his practice primarily on premises and products liability and serious personal injury cases, earning numerous multi-million verdicts and settlements — including cases involving defective industrial drilling machinery, motorcycle lane splitting injuries, concussion injuries, wrongful death and more. Other high profile matters he has handled include cases involving abuse by a CHP officer who intentionally broke the ankle of handcuffed suspect (4th amendment violation excessive force), and the wrongful death of inmate at Donovan State Prison (8th amendment violation cruel and unusual punishment).

He is currently putting his investigative training to work, focusing on serious injuries caused by commercial truck collisions. “These are difficult cases that involve the interplay between state and federal laws and regulations and complex fact patterns,” he says. “My training in accident reconstruction has really helped me decipher complex causation issues in trucking cases, especially Big Rigs.”

In addition, he has successfully represented numerous military and law enforcement personnel and their family members from entities including the San Diego Police Department, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol and the United States Border Patrol. Tom is also focused on helping foster children who are at risk, donating time and energy to the San Pasqual Academy in Escondido.
