Personal Injury Cases
At Finkelstein and Partners, we work hard to protect your rights if you have suffered physical, emotional, and financial hardship due to the negligent actions of another. If you have been injured in an accident, we can help you receive the compensation you deserve. We have the skills, experience, and resources needed to battle negligent individuals and their insurance companies to ensure that you receive a fair settlement that will cover medical expenses, lost income, as well as pain and suffering.
Often, there are many issues that need to be resolved after suffering from a serious accident. You will need to seek medical attention from a qualified specialist; if you are unable to work for a period of time following your injury, medical bills and living expenses can mount quickly to become financially crippling. Our personal injury attorneys extend well beyond basic legal representation to help you resolve many of these issues so that you can focus on getting better.
It is important that you act quickly. Our personal injury lawyers will need to conduct an investigation while evidence is still intact and witnesses can remember the details of the accident. Furthermore, there are statutes of limitations governing many personal injury claims, making it crucial that you file suit before these time limits expire. At Finkelstein & Partners, we can help you navigate this complex process to ensure all deadlines are met and all evidence is properly gathered.

Guns can be dangerous. Love them or hate them, there’s no debating that simple fact – especially when they’re in the hands of an inexperienced user. Stories of injury and death from accidental or intentional use of firearms fill the news each day. When one person causes injury or death to another with a gun out of negligence or wrongful intent, he or she may be legally liable. If a child injures someone else with a firearm, his or her parents may be held accountable.
