Landslide Deaths
From Negligent Logging​

Don Corson was the lead liability lawyer on multiple wrongful death and personal injury actions arising out of a deadly landslide in the Oregon Coast Range mountains. Clearcut logging operations on a state-identified high risk site above family homes led to a predictable result: during a storm, an entire hillside gave way. The torrent of mud, rock, water, and debris wiped away everything in its path, completely destroying one house, killing several persons, and injuring others. The site had been identified as “high risk” before the storm precisely because of this danger. After confidential settlements, these cases became the catalyst for improved forest management rules.
