Areas of Law and Focus
If you or a loved one was injured due to the negligence of a doctor, hospital, nurse or other health care provider you may have the right to bring a medical malpractice action to recover money damages for the injuries caused by the medical error or mistake.
Property owners have an obligation to persons visiting their property to keep the walkways, stairs, paths and other areas in a safe and defect free condition. Many times property owners fail to keep their property in a safe condition and that failure causes someone to slip or trip and fall causing injury. Some examples of defective conditions are: frayed carpets, worn mats, uneven stairs, broken steps, uneven or cracked sidewalks, defective doors and wet slippery floors, just to name a few.
Client’s often call us to ask about their right to sue in instances that do not fall under the traditional categories of negligence or malpractice. At the Law Office of Glenn Verchick, we have a history of taking on challenging cases that require us to “think outside the box.” We review and consider any case where there is a significant injury at the hands of a negligent person, company or professional.
Our firm represents victims of serious and sometimes fatal motor vehicle accidents. If the driver of a car, bus or truck is negligent in the operation of his or her vehicle and that negligence causes injury or death he or she may be held liable for the damages caused. If the negligent driver was in the course of his or her employment, the employer may also be liable for the damage caused.
Our firm represents victims of nursing home negligence, abuse and malpractice. Nursing homes and long term care facilities are charged with the duty to provide a safe and healthy environment for its residents. Unfortunately, the level of care often falls below good and accepted standards of care and in many instances violates Federal, State and Local laws, statutes and regulations.
Law enforcement officials are there to serve and protect citizens. More often than not, they do and do so with honor, respect and integrity. However, there are instances where law enforcement officials use excessive force or unlawfully arrest and prosecute someone in violation of that person’s civil rights which are guaranteed by state and federal law. When this happens, the victim of excessive force or unlawful arrest or detention is entitled to bring a civil action to recover the damages cause by the unlawful activity of the police. At the Law Office of Glenn Verchick, we represent victims of excessive force, unlawful detention and arrest and malicious prosecution.
Construction sites present the risk of injury to workers on a daily basis. While well run projects employ Site Safety Managers and OSHA trained Competent and Qualified persons to try and minimize risk, it is almost impossible to eliminate all construction site accidents. The work is physically demanding, often done at dangerous heights, on ladders and scaffolds and in bad weather conditions and under the pressure of bringing in the project on schedule. When a worker is injured, it is more often than not a serious injury which requires intensive medical treatment and inevitably significant time lost from work. It is a stressor not just for the injured worker, but also for the family and loved ones who depend on the worker's paycheck for support. The injured worker and his or her family and loved ones need solid legal support and advise to lead them through these tough times.
