Pamela Broache has spent the past two decades trying cases in the state and federal jurisdictions of Maryland, where she has appeared as lead counsel in bench trials as well as before juries. She defends clients and insurers in complex matters involving product liability, personal injury, employment discrimination, and exposure to asbestos, vinyl chloride, silica, lead paint, and other toxic substances.
She regularly obtains dismissals and summary judgment in complex mesothelioma cases in Baltimore City Circuit Court, and has successfully argued cases before the Court of Special Appeals. She was recently part of a team that prevailed in a $1.7 million lead paint exposure case. Additionally, Pam has experience handling construction design and defect claims, and recently led the successful defense of a subcontractor in a case involving substantial damages.
Pam also has extensive experience defending workers’ compensation claims. She spent many years litigating workers’ compensation matters as in-house counsel for a major insurance company. She then continued that practice for several years as senior counsel for a major workers’ compensation defense firm in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Pam has represented employers of all types in the full range of accidental and occupational injury claims, from the initial response to the claim through all stages of litigation. She has defended employers, insurers, and independent adjusting companies in numerous hearings before the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission, and she has efficiently protected her clients’ interests in settlement negotiations and through appeals to the Circuit Courts of Maryland.
