Personal Injury

The firm’s personal injury and wrongful death practice is led by Michael Lieberman and Ben DiMuro. Our personal injury paralegal, Kelly Saunders Hauck, has over 30 years of experience in the personal injury field. In the unfortunate circumstance that you find yourself needing personal injury representation, our team of experienced lawyers and staff stand ready to help you.  Our lawyers work closely with our clients to ensure we understand their unique needs, believing that each case and every person is unique.  We understand that being injured through no fault of your own and trying to find a lawyer can be overwhelming.  Our firm and its lawyers have more than 36 years of experience handling matters ranging from automobile accidents, medical malpractice cases, civil rights and defamation cases to wrongful death matters.  We have a proven track-record of working steadfastly to obtain the most successful outcomes on behalf of our clients.

Dealing with insurance companies, whether it is your own auto policy, health insurance company, the other party’s insurance company, or some other insurance, is extremely complicated. At DiMuroGinsberg, we understand that. Our goal is to relieve the pressure of managing the insurance companies, doctors, hospitals, Medicare, Medicaid, and other matters like these that might be weighing you down, by dealing with them directly on your behalf. Our approach focuses on helping you get better, so you’re not trying to deal with these complexities and other pressures. We want to protect you from those that want to take advantage of you and/or withhold full and fair compensation for your injuries.

We always work very closely with the injured people we represent, while protecting them from others who may seem like they have your best interests in mind, but almost always do not.

We are always willing to talk with you and we pride ourselves in providing our straight and honest opinions so you know the strengths and weaknesses of your case and so we all know we are always on the same page. At DiMuroGinsberg we know trust is essential. You will have ours and we will earn yours.
