Casey DeReus

Casey is an Associate at Baer Law, LLC. She focuses her practice on personal injury, especially ride-share cases and inadequate security cases. Her ride-share cases involve helping people who were injured in Uber and Lyft crashes. Her inadequate security cases deal with individuals who were shot at apartment complexes or commercial complexes.

She also has substantial experience handling disaster recovery and first-party property insurance claims—including policyholder advocacy for more than 1,000 flood victims. Both in private practice and as a Member of the DLS team, she has also worked on windstorm events, such hurricanes and typhoons. This work has sparked Casey’s interest on the intersection of climate change and insurance law.
