Awesome
Mr. Scott Bergman is an awesome man, and his work ethic and dedication speaks to that notion. I haven’t had the chance to deal with any other injury lawyer, and now I don’t have to because I know I would be in great hands with him and his office. Highly recommended.

Got me great value for my case
Mr. Bergman is an exceptional lawyer who represented me and my niece in our car accident case. I had never been in a motor vehicle accident and didn't know what to expect but thank God I found Mr. Bergman to guide me and represent me during the whole process. I never felt abandoned, he was always communicative with me and I followed all his instructions to the T. Him and Candida are a wonderful team who kept me updated with my case status. His fee is reasonable and I believe that with his representation I got a much better value for my case vs. another lawyer who is more focused on quantity of cases vs. doing the right things per individual client/case. Mr. Bergman really cares about each client and getting the best out come according to case circumstances. He is absolutely the right person to call and assist any injured person when at one of their most vulnerable times in need of help. Thank you Mr. B, you're the best!

Amazing Advocate
Mr. Bergman and his team were compassionate, professional, available and persistent advocates. My case extended over the course of two years and through each phase of the process I was kept informed of any progress or obstacles. Mr. Bergman was completely transparent and provided realistic expectations for the process. Highly recommend working with him as he operates from a place of integrity with years of experience and it shows.

Him and his team starting prepping my next steps. After providing all of the document requested. They were able to me and the right direction. As the case was near closing. Scott and his team were able to provide a breakdown of everything. Nothing was hidden. Thank you, I will be referring you to others.

Exceptional
From start to finish Scott and his team did everything they could to make sure I was taken care of, kept informed and ultimately ensured a successful outcome for me. I ended up walking away with 3 times the amount i was originally told was the amount I could expect to receive as a result of my injuries. I would use Bergman's law again and I would highly recommend them to others.

A few days into a new job... CRASH!
My first week on a new job where I was driving a company vehicle ended with a four car collision. Although I was not at fault, the aftermath led to dealing with workers comp insurance fighting like a junkyard dog to discredit and deny my claim for injuries which required physical therapy. I'm truly thankful (and relieved) that I did not have to deal directly with the hassles and administrative work of going back and forth with workers comp and the other insured parties to cover my claims. I would highly suggest anyone who has an accident immediately seek legal representation with Scott Bergman because he acts professionally and is persists for the win.

Mr. Bergman's review.
Mr. Bergman has helped my family in multiple cases, and recently he represented me in an accident case that I was involved in with a uninsured motorist. Him and his office provided an excellent quality of work, and provided me a decent settlement from the insurance company since this was an uninsured motorist claim. I would highly recommend him and his office assistance for anyone who's out here looking for legal help.

Mr. Bergman took Allstate to Court and then to the cleaners for me!
I was in a rear end collision where Allstate sent me a property damage check that didn’t cover my damage and then decided to deny my claim. I was hurt and had medical bills that I now owed and was going into collections. I found Mr. Bergman right here on AVVO and he sued for me in PG County and when Allstate did everything to delay the case and avoid doing any discovery, Mr. Bergman got a hearing on the problem and then their nasty defense counsel got scolded in front of a judge for their conduct. They then decided to settle with me approporiately, but not before Mr. Bergman took them to the cleaners in front of the Judge and that is the kind of care that makes Mr. Bergman a great attorney for his clients.

The attorney you want by your side!
I was rear-ended on Dulles Toll Rd while i was 7 months pregnant. Scott was referred to me by my chiropractor who I 200% trust. Everything he said about Scott was accurate. He fought hard for my case and increased the settlement from GEICO by 30%. I strongly recommend this attorney.

Mr. Bergman helped out this Uber driver with his auto injury case
I am an UBER driver who was referred to Mr. Bergman from another UBER driver and I was in a auto accident that was originally denied and because I am an UBER driver I limited insurance that doesn’t have full coverage, but liability for passengers and other vehicle if I were at fault. In this case I was not at fault and yet my claim was denied and I could not work because of my car damages and I was hurt. Fortunately, Mr. Bergman got the Insurance company to reverse its decision and pay for my property damages and then injury claim. Thank you Mr. Bergman!

Mr. Bergman got me a great settlement for a nightmare slip and fall injury at a nationally known buffet restaurant chain.
Last year, I had a family dinner at a big buffet chain restaurant that is a national name brand. The buffet is usually pretty good with the service for my family. On this occasion however the restaurant staff was not properly cleaning up food left around the buffet and I had a horrible fall on some food that was on the floor next to the buffet. The fall was so bad I needed to go to the hospital by ambulance. The restaurant management showed no care. I can not mention the name fo the restaurant because of my settlement agreement otherwise I would. After days of trying to get the restaurant to help me, they refused calling me back. So I went online and found Mr. Bergman on AVVO and called him. He promptly called me back and told me that he could help me. He told me slip and fall cases are not easy but believed he could get the restaurant’s insurance to pay for my injuries. Mr. Bergman made sure that I was given good attention from his office and that I got excellent medical care to recover for my injuries. At the end, Mr. Bergman got me a settlement agreement that could cover my medicals and my pain and suffering from this horrible night that I would love to forget, I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Bergman for anyone who needs help like I needed help for my injuries.

Great work and professionalism dealing with my injury case against Allstate
I was involved in a bad accident by a DUI driver who deserved to go to jail and eventually did for being a repeat offender in Montgomery County MD. Scott handled my case against AllState very well as they were very difficult to deal with and he and his staff were on top of what was going on at all times, including my medical care and made sure my billing from the medical care was completely covered. Scott’s staff worked very well in keeping my claim moving with Allstate to an amicable resolution of my injury claim. I would recommend Scott and his firm to anyone who needed help in a injury case like myself.

Great attorney and he got me a very nice settlement!
Mr. Bergman and his associates were able to help me get the most out of my settlement and I was pleased with the entire process from beginning to end and in a bad situation dealing with a nasty company like State Farm that didn't care a bit about my injuries when the claim was filed.

Mr. Bergman was sent to me from the heavens to save my life and got me a $380,000 settlement for my Workers Compensation Case!
Spanish to English Translation: In October 2017, I was working as a laborer roofer on a repair project on a three story office building when my supervisor accidently pushed me off the roof and broke my legs and other parts of my body. God luckly let me live by I had multiple emergency surgeries and my employer's insurance was not assisting me right away while they investigated what happened. I needed help for myself and my family right away as I was the man of the family who supported my family everyday. Another Attorney that was a family adviser for my poor family, introduced me to Mr. Bergman who took my case and got me the proper medical help and my weekly wages that I needed to keep going. Mr. Bergman got me all the therapy and care I needed and made sure the insurance continued to pay me until I was able to walk again and get my life somewhat back into order. Mr. Bergman made sure I got all my medical care paid for all my care that I needed. Finally, at the end Mr. Bergman got me a unexpected cash settlement with the insurance company for $380,000.00 so I can continue my life for myself and my family and to continue getting therapy for myself. God Bless Mr. Bergman for his help and his courage as well as his great staff to fight for me and my family everyday to get my medical care and back on my two feet and saved my life!

Mr Bergman won my case and got me the policy limits from State Farm!
I am thankful with the great customer service I received. I had accidents in the past and I was tired of the service I was receiving from the other attorneys offices and when my friend told me about Mr. Bergman I immeadiately set up an appointment with his assistant who is very nice and friendly. Since the first meeting I knew I had came to the right attorney as the process was explained very well as well as what I needed to do with my car issue. Very highly experienced attorney and staff. I am very satisfied.
