Availability and Personal-Attention
We, at Sternberg Law Firm, believe that being at your service at all times and offering personal attention are an integral part of our role. This is twice as true in dire circumstances when many obstacles prevent clients from taking full possession of their rights and getting their due – from the tortfeasor, from insurance companies, or from state institutions.
Therefore, our lawyers assist clients and their families step by step from first contacting the office to taking possession of their rights and receiving remunerations.
Moreover, retainer is charged at the end of the proceedings and subject to their success, at the expense of the relevant insurance company or government agency. This demonstrates our complete faith in our mission and our vast experience.
Work Disability and Workplace Accidents
The firm ensures the full rights of work injury victims and files suites against insurances companies, pension funds, and the National Insurance Institute. If a client is granted a state of disability by an NII medical assessment committee, the firm ensures that he gets his dues by law including grants and additional rights.
The firm offers legal services to clients who have been harmed by medical procedures, whether due to doctor malpractice or due to care staff malpractice. We have a marked advantage with cases of this kind thanks to the vast experience accumulated, and the wide panel of experts who grant us timely consultation.
Along the years, the firm has successfully filed suits in this field pertaining to, among other things, birth injuries due to malpractice, wrongful birth, late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of tumors, prescription of incorrect dosages, lack of medical explanations, negligent pregnancy supervision, plastic surgeries, and more.
National Insurance Institute
Cases against the NII are complicated and involve understanding a complex set of rules and regulations. In such suits, injured parties are not only required to fill complicated forms, but also to appear and argue before medical assessment committees who examine their case. The firm assists its clients, appears with them before committees as well as before specialist physicians to ensure full protection of their rights.
Upon reaching a medically dependent state requiring nursing care, injured parties and their family members are faced with a challenging situation. Despite the importance of due financial assistance at these times, insurance companies and the NII are in no particular hurry to grant payments or enable the benefits and assistance the insured parties and their family are due. The firm believe that acquiring full possession of the plaintiff’s rights depends first and foremost on prior knowledge and thorough preparation of proceedings before the insurance company, health maintenance organization, or the NII. The firm handles dozens of nursing cases and lawsuits on a daily basis, and with great success.
The rights of accident victims are settled as part of the Reparations for Traffic Accident Victims Law. For the injured party and their family members to protect their rights, several factors must be considered: the nature of the injury, the needs of the victim and their family, costs of required assistance, permanent disabilities, identity of court-appointed experts, accident classifications, jurisdiction arbitration with the NII (if dealing with a work accident), the statute of limitations, and others. The firm assists the injured party and their families throughout the proceedings until they are granted all their due rights.
The firm assists military and security forces personnel who have been dealt physical or mental harm while serving. We have vast experience with security forces, their various committees, with payment officer decisions and appeals.
