Personal Injury When someone is injured or killed because of the negligence of another, even if the harm was not intended, often the only recourse is to work through the legal system. In those cases, you need a law firm that will fight for your rights and fairly represent you in court. At Kochanski, Baron & Galfy, that's exactly what we do. Insurance companies rarely base their offers on your particular case, but on the data collected from similar instances of injuries like yours. Reaching a "fair settlement" requires the injured party's story to be told fully and effectively. That's what we do - we represent your interests and your story - so that all of the facts of the case come out. This gives you the best possible opportunity for personal justice and appropriate financial compensation. For more information about personal injury cases, please call us at 732.382.7373 Workman's Compensation Anyone injured on the job should immediately consult an experienced attorney. Too often we see insurance companies take advantage of people who are injured simply because they didn't know any better. Most people aren't aware of their rights when they are injured at work. Not having all of the information can cost you dearly in the long run. We will help you understand the process and facilitate any aspects that you do not understand or are unable to handle because of your injury. If you or someone you know has been injured at work and is not getting the kind of attention warranted, please call us at 732.382.7373. Social Security/Disability At the moment that you need Social Security benefits, there's a lot to think about. Either you're suffering after a significant injury or perhaps grieving a great loss. While you are never required to be represented by an attorney, the odds of being approved for benefits are much better when you work with an attorney to prepare the filing and/or the appeal. We objectively evaluate the circumstances of your case, and then build the strongest possible argument for your cause. Our experience and reputation for thoroughness have helped us to secure benefits without our clients having to attend a hearing. If you have questions about your particular situation, please give us a call at ?732.382.7373.
