 Personal Injury

At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC we like to think of ourselves as the ‘personal’ personal injury attorneys.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

In just a moment, a motor vehicle accident can affect everything — your health, your finances and your future.  Motor Vehicle accidents are the most common personal injury cases in the US. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC we are dedicated to helping motor vehicle accident clients obtain the compensation they deserve. We focus on providing personal attention, while diligently pursuing the negligent parties, so you can focus on healing and rebuilding your life.

Slips, Trips and Falls

Slip-and-falls are another common causes of injuries. Every year, hundreds of local people suffer torn ligaments and tendons, broken bones and back injuries from falls on dangerous and poorly maintained property. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we provide aggressive, intelligent representation for those injured on the property of others. Our attorneys have built a reputation as some of the region’s most reliable and successful advocates.

Serious Death & Injury

While it only takes a fleeting moment of negligence to cause a traumatic personal injury, the effects of a serious injury or the death of a loved one can last forever. After a serious injury occurs, it is in the best interest of the injured person and his or her family members to seek out the counsel of a skilled personal injury trial lawyer. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, our compassionate, experienced lawyers are committed to helping injury victims and the families of wrongful death victims during this very difficult time. We have the expertise and have achieved successful results for our clients throughout our years of practice.

Construction Accidents

While many people in our area make their living in the construction industry, construction sites pose dangers to workers and others. Workers often lift heavy objects, perform work at great heights and operate heavy equipment, exposing themselves to the possibility of severe injury and death. At the law firm of Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we represent construction workers, window washers, heating and air conditioning contractors, electricians, plumbers and other labor employees who have suffered injuries such as back injuries, neck injuries, broken bones, head and brain injuries or paralysis. We are familiar with all Department of Labor and OSHA laws, and we work hard to hold negligent employers accountable for legal violations that result in injuries.

An injury or accident caused by the negligence of others can be life-altering and completely devastating. We are strong advocates for our personal injury clients and will aggressively seek to ensure any settlement or verdict covers the full cost of your recovery.
