  • Galfand Berger Attorneys Obtain Three of the Top 35 Settlements in 2011

    June 22, 2012 – Galfand Berger senior partners Richard Jurewicz and Peter Patton obtained three of the top thirty-five highest grossing settlements in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 2011.

    Rick had two of the top settlements.  The first was for a worker who received multiple injuries to his arm when it was caught in the power shaft of a canning machine. The accident was a result of a defectively designed machine, allowing it to operate with the power shaft unguarded.  Rick’s second top settlement was for a machine operator whose arm was severely injured after it became caught between an unguarded point on a conveyor belt and roller.

    Peter obtained a settlement for a carpenter who suffered significant injuries after a hose from a concrete pump struck him in the leg. Peter determined that the operation of the pump was in direct violation of the safety manual and that precautions were not taken to protect against foreseeable hazards.

    Peter and Rick, like all Galfand Berger attorneys, work tirelessly to represent and defend the rights of the injured.  Our firm has a proud history of top recoveries.   If you or someone that you know has been injured, please contact us toll free at 1-800-222-8792  or contact us online to discuss your legal rights.
