Galfand Berger, LLP
Helping Injured People Since 1947
Over 70 Years of Helping Injured People
What happens if you or someone you love is hurt at work, in an accident, or harmed by defective products? Injuries from these accidents have life-altering consequences. Your health, your job, your family, and your security are all at risk.
Your rights have been under attack for years by insurance companies and big business. They have used slick campaigns in an effort to convince the public that there are frivolous lawsuits, runaway juries, and a civil justice system in need of reform.
Too many people have bought into the corporate spin. All the while, your rights as an accident victim, worker and patient slowly erode. For the most difficult challenges in life, you need a law firm. Galfand Berger assists injured people. Since 1947, we have been doing this.
Our firm is proud to restore dignity and security to those who have been injured by automobile accidents, defective products or unsafe equipment and machinery, work-place and construction accidents, workers' comp claims, medical malpractice, and other serious personal injuries.
Galfand Berger attorneys are relentless advocates for our clients. Each case is unique and the outcome will depend on the circumstances. Our firm will fight tirelessly for your rights.
Each case is approached with the same integrity, skill and compassion that our clients deserve. It shows in our results. Galfand Berger has secured more than $250,000 in settlements over the past ten years. Here are some of the cases we have handled as we take on large corporations, insurance carriers and other negligent parties
When to Seek Legal Help from Us
Accident victims may not know if they require legal advice. Workers who are injured on the job can usually file for Workers' Compensation benefits. However, if someone other than your employer is responsible for your injury, you may be able to sue that "third party." Examples of a possible third party include a manufacturer of unsafe equipment, a seller of dangerous chemicals, a non-employee car or truck driver, or a contractor or subcontractor working on your employer's premises. Third party claims allow you to recover damages that are not covered by Workers' Compensation.
In other cases, car accident victims think they must take what the insurance company offers them. Automobile accidents law is a complicated field due to the many insurance policies and coverages. Accident victims should speak with a lawyer. An experienced car accident lawyer knows how to evaluate accident cases, protect a victim's legal rights, and negotiate full compensation from insurance companies.
In all of these circumstances, accident victims may be walking away with much less than they deserve. Injured people or their families should never hesitate to seek legal help from experienced, trusted counsel when any of the following circumstances occur:
Work accidents can be especially dangerous if they are caused by defective equipment, negligence or other factors.
