Vigorous Representation Of The Injured On A Contingency Fee Basis

To get a personal injury or workers’ compensation case started, we:

  • Conduct a thorough interview with you to understand your situation. We never rush our clients, and your privacy is always held in the highest regard.
  • Research the situation. This might mean investigating a company or reviewing records from an accident scene. We also look for previous complaints or, in premises cases, whether other similar incidents have taken place.
  • Consult with highly regarded experts to gain an objective assessment of the long-term implications of your situation. This may include gathering assessments and opinions from medical specialists, engineers or crime-scene reconstruction specialists.

When we have a clear sense of the accident and your injuries and losses, we will advise you on your options. This detailed approach has led us to success in a great variety of cases, including slip-and-fall accidents, injuries from heavy lifting, electrocutions and injuries caused by the removal or disabling of automatic safety devices.

Working With You, On Your Behalf: A True Team Approach

Your initial consultation is free, and we will collect no attorney fees until you recover on your claim. The decision to pursue your case with our guidance is up to you. Once you decide yes, we will commit substantial resources to investigate your case, hire expert witnesses as needed and cover necessary expenses. If we succeed in recovering compensation for you, we will recover these expenditures along with our remuneration. If not, you will owe us nothing.

When you retain Friedman, Domiano & Smith as your law firm, you get much more than the services of just one lawyer. In addition to your attorney, you also have a case manager and a paralegal assisting your case. The case manager and paralegal work with your lawyer in gathering information and obtaining status updates on your medical treatment. Of course, you can always speak to your attorney, but you also have a team of people working for you. We have found that our clients appreciate the personal attention they receive through our team approach.
