Heimberg Barr: your first choice for injury cases.
Sometimes accidents can cause injuries that change your life forever. Paralysis, loss of a limb, a brain injury that takes away one of your senses or significantly changes your ability to think, the death of a loved one - these can require lifetime medical care and expenses you've probably never had to think about before.
As a medical doctor, and a top personal injury lawyer, Senior Partner Steven Heimberg brings more to the table than almost all other lawyers that deal with severe injuries like yours: he understands, easily and immediately, all of the medical jargon and posturing that the wrongdoers often hide behind. When combined with his immense talents as a trial attorney, Dr. Heimberg's medical knowledge makes him your best ally when coping with a life altering personal injury, and he is able to defeat the vast resources that the companies (and insurance companies) bring to prevent those in your situation from getting what they deserve.
The Attorneys of Heimberg Barr are on your side.
Accidents happen. Nothing and no one is perfect. But many times life-changing injuries are someone's fault - the result of another's wrongdoing and that person or institution should pay for the harm caused.
