Fighting For You
Since 1947, Galfand Berger has been a voice for injured workers, consumers and individuals. We are proud of the many recoveries we’ve made for our clients this year. While these recoveries will never make our clients whole, they help calm some of the medical, emotional and economic turmoil that a devastating injury brings with it. Below are just a sampling of our firm recoveries:
- Rick Jurewicz obtained a $5 million recovery for the family of a man fatally injured when an 1800 pound paper roll crushed him. The paper roll had been improperly loaded and secured. Simple precautions could have prevented a senseless death.
- Debra Jensen negotiated a $2 million settlement for our client who suffered devastating leg injuries when he was hit by heavy construction equipment. The operator of the equipment broke commonsense driving rules and industry standards by failing to “look both ways.”
- Peter Patton and Debra Jensen partnered in an industrial products case in which a machine malfunctioned, pinning our client against a wall and killing him. Pete and Deb recovered over $1.5 million for our client’s family.
- Mike Malvey negotiated a $900,000 settlement for our client, a passenger in a rental car who was badly hurt in a guardrail accident.
