Every year, U.S. News teams up with Best Lawyers and together the organizations compile a list of the nation’s leading law firms. We are pleased to announce that this year, Galfand Berger was ranked as one of the best firms in two different practice areas: personal injury and product liability litigation.
U.S. News – Best Lawyers surveys more than 13,000 firms in 187 various metro areas (as well as more than 120 different specialties, like medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, etc.) and ranks them according to numerous stringent criteria. In order to be selected as one of the best across the country, a law firm must first meet several different eligibility requirements; what is unique about U.S. News – Best Lawyers’ methodology is that it relies 100% on peer review.
At Galfand Berger, our attorneys know how important each and every client is. In its most recent edition, U.S. News – Best Lawyers named our firm as one of the best in product liability litigation. The organizations also ranked our team as Tier 1 personal injury litigators. Receiving a Tier 1 rating is the best any firm can get – and it means that Galfand Berger had one of the highest-scoring personal injury departments in the country.
When an individual is injured or killed as a result of an unreasonably dangerous or defective product, his or her family sometimes files a product liability claim. In these suits, plaintiffs pursue damages against product manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, or sellers who they argue are responsible for a product-related illness, injury, and/or death.
Personal injury attorneys represent victims who were injured by someone else’s negligent behavior – or the negligence of a government agency, entity, or company. There are many different types of personal injury claims, but some of the most common are automobile accidents and slip and falls.
Our firm is proud to accept this award as one of 2019’s “Best Law Firms.” Since first opening in 1947, taking the needs of clients seriously has always been an integral part of the firm’s mission.
