The Trial Lawyers of Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC
To Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC Please accept my sincere appreciation for the services your agency provided to me and my family on the Jessie Palmer wrongful death cases. There were so many issues that needed to be resolved, and with your assistance we were able to finally get the diagnosis report printed. My stepdaughters asked me to thank you as well for the settlements they received from their father's estate. We humbly appreciate the wonderful job your firm did with our case. In the future we will refer family and friends to your agency.- L.P.
Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.- J.W.

Dear J.B. , I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me.

Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,- J.F.

An accident that causes serious injury can have lasting repercussions on your life and the lives of your family members. Many people do not realize that following a serious accident, injuries and impairment may last long after just the initial hospital stay, often affecting the individual’s ability to work and provide for themselves and their families.
With that in mind, it is clear that choosing an attorney is one of the most important decisions an injured individual and their family can make. When it comes to handling serious injury cases, experience matters and compassion is key. You need someone who understands what you are going through, and knows the long-term struggles that you may face if you do not get the compensation you rightfully deserve.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), 31 million people are hurt in accidents each year and require treatment for their injuries.

Out of that group, 162,000 of those accidents proved to be fatal.
- There are 3 million injury accidents on U.S. roadways each year, and 40,000 of those injury accidents prove to be fatal. 60,000 injuries are directly related to 18-wheeler and large commercial vehicles in the United States, and those accidents kill nearly 5,000 people every year.

Studies currently show that some form of abuse has been discovered in 30% of all nursing homes across the United States.
