Don Kral

Attorney

 

Don is an experienced litigator with almost thirty million dollars obtained on behalf of clients he represented.  His complex personal injury cases have included severely injured employees, medical negligence victims, railroad collision cases, motor vehicle accidents, improper medical research programs, and other personal injury claims.   Don has handled cases where the injuries included loss of limb, brain injuries, severe spinal injuries and paralysis, fractures, unnecessary surgery, and wrongful death.

Don has often turned complex cases rejected by other firms into successful recoveries on behalf of his clients.  Don’s first case against a railroad involved a client who was turned down by three other plaintiff firms before Don happened to get her call.  After numerous depositions, working in the community to identify witnesses, and overcoming the railroad’s attempt to have the case thrown out, Don obtained a multi-million-dollar settlement the day before trial.

In another difficult case, Don successfully recovered a settlement against a Veterans Administration research project that resulted in his paraplegic clients experiencing additional ongoing lifelong injuries.  In yet another case, the Veterans Administration physician performed a follow-up surgery on Don’s client using guidelines provided by the expert Don retained which helped save his client’s lower limb.

Not one to back down on a challenge, Don took over forty-five depositions in a wrongful death case resulting in the discovery of massive wrongdoing on the part of the defendant and a large multi-million-dollar settlement.  In another case, the client came to Don one week before the statute of limitations was set to expire and unable to find a firm to take on the case with such short notice.  Don went forward with the case and discovered that the client’s wife died as the result of a surgeon attempting to locate and remove a body organ that had already been removed by a prior surgeon.

After graduating college at Miami University of Ohio, Don’s passion for helping people led him to work in a consumer organization fighting high energy prices.  Eventually, he became Director of Energy Pricing Research for a special joint Ohio legislative committee that developed an assistance program for low-income elderly and disabled households.  Before being accepted at Harvard Law School he worked as a Legislative Assistant in the Ohio General Assembly.

After representing clients at two of the largest plaintiff personal injury firms in Ohio, Don decided to bring his litigation experience to Babin Law.  Its work on behalf of human trafficking and child sex abuse victims along with its work on complex mass tort and class action matters demonstrated to Don its commitment to helping people.  Don now represents hundreds of abuse victims with claims against those who failed to provide a safe environment for our children.

When he’s not at the office, Don enjoys cycling, kayaking, running, and spending time with his children and grandchildren.
