Galfand Berger’s personal injury attorney, Richard Jurewicz, is responsible for some of the largest recoveries in Galfand Berger’s history and 2013 was no different. A recent publication: Top Pennsylvania Verdicts of 2013, show that Rick had four of the top reported settlements that year!
Along with Galfand Berger, Rick will be honored for one of these cases at the “Top Verdicts & Settlements” awards dinner on July 29 at the Franklin Institute, where we will receive a top award in the “Premises Liability” category.
Rick’s 2013 top recoveries include:
- $2.45 million dollars for a recycling plant worker with devastating arm and hand injuries. Our client sustained these severe injuries — which resulted in the amputation of his hand — while clearing a paper jam on a paper shredder. This case was the second highest reported premises liability settlement in Pennsylvania for 2013!
- Half a million dollars for a worker whose hand was pulled into a rotary airlock resulting in partial amputation of his thumb, index and long fingers. This case was the 12th highest reported recovery for a products liability case in Pennsylvania for 2013!
- $420,000 for our client, a flash dry oven attendant working on a pasting line at a manufacturer of lead-acid batteries. Our client lifted a guard to remove a jam and his hand was pulled into the machine’s nip point, crushing two fingers. This case was the 13th highest reported recovery for a products liability case in Pennsylvania for 2013!
- Nearly $300,000 for a mixing hopper operator at a plastics manufacturing company. Our client lost portions of his left index and long fingers when a valve unexpectedly closed. This case was the 14th highest reported recovery for a products liability case in Pennsylvania for 2013!
