About Amanda L. Brasfield

Amanda is renowned within the firm as one of its most seasoned trial attorneys. Her extensive experience spans a wide range of cases, from medical malpractice to negligence in construction accidents, resulting in numerous multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts. In the realm of medical malpractice, Amanda has tackled numerous complex cases involving birth injuries, cerebral palsy, surgical errors, delayed diagnoses of conditions such as cancer, and missed diagnoses of critical ailments like heart attacks, strokes, infections, sepsis, hemorrhages, meningitis, abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms (AAA and TAA), and shock. Throughout the entire legal process, from depositions to trial, Amanda diligently investigates cases to uncover deviations from proper medical practices and identify preventive measures that could have averted injuries and fatalities arising from medical care. Her commitment and persistence shine through in each medical malpractice case, as she relentlessly seeks justice for those who placed their trust in medical providers.

In addition to her proficiency in medical malpractice cases, Amanda has also taken on the challenge of handling complex personal injury lawsuits. These cases encompass a wide range of scenarios, including construction site negligence, trench collapses, elevator/lift failures, trucking accidents, auto accidents, childhood sexual abuse, police misconduct, and police shootings. Amanda dedicates herself to the investigation and litigation of these personal injury cases. During her time at Loyola University School of Law, where she pursued night classes, Amanda concurrently worked full-time as a paralegal/law clerk at KJS. In this capacity, she contributed to all aspects of case preparation for medical malpractice and complex personal injury trials.
