Gene Brooks

Eugene “Gene” C. Brooks, IV is dedicated to helping victims through their injury claims for compensation. This includes wrongful death claims, tort law, personal injury cases, negligence, premises and property liability, workers’ compensation, and bad faith insurance claims.

His passion for the law began in the first decade of his practice when he represented injured workers in suits stemming from exposure to industrial solvents, asbestos, lead, and formaldehyde. This then led Gene to take on federal litigation against big pharmaceutical companies, such as the manufacturers of Fen-Phen, estrogen-MPA hormones, and Vioxx where he served on national committees.
