Elizabeth C. Ward
Liza Ward's practice ranges from helping clients injured by acts of corporate negligence to seeking improvements in worker and environmental health and safety. She litigates commercial, products liability and personal injury cases with Motley Rice's Occupational and Toxic Tort practice group and additionally works with the Medical team to represent people affected by allegedly harmful prescription drugs such as Accutane®.
Liza is also heavily involved in the firm’s role as consultants to South African human rights lawyer Richard Spoor in his effort to take on leading global gold producers and seek justice for tens of thousands of exploited gold mine workers who are suffering from silicosis. Few class actions have been brought in South Africa, and none have been filed for sick workers. If approved as a class, the suit would generate an unprecedented means of recovery for the country and ensure meaningful access to justice for the indigent and rural workers who are dying from this entirely preventable yet incurable disease.
Liza has advocated for domestic violence victims' rights by participating in training programs and pro bono litigation. She served as articles editor for the South Carolina Law Review while a law student at the University of South Carolina School of Law and is a member of the Order of the Wig and Robe.
