Seeking compensation for your injuries

Accidents happen when you least expect them. At Saltzman Chetkof & Rosenberg LLP, we know how difficult life can be for victims after an accident occurs.

If your injuries were caused by the negligence of others, you may be entitled to receive compensation for lost income, property damage, past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and emotional distress. Let the attorneys at Saltzman Chetkof & Rosenberg LLP hold those parties responsible for your injuries and help you recover the maximum amount of compensation available in settlements and at trial.

Our attorneys are known for their skills in the courtroom. They have extensive experience in personal injury litigation and use every resource at their disposal to gain an advantage in your case. We routinely bring in experts in accident reconstruction, accounting, engineering, medicine and psychology to show juries exactly how you were injured, who was responsible and how much compensation you should receive.

We also know what insurance companies are looking for when handling your claims.
