    I have spoken at more than 50 lawyer seminars on subjects related to handling serious personal injury cases, including auto accident cases.

    Injuries caused by commercial trucks can be much more complicated than cases involving passenger cars and trucks. Not every injury lawyer has specialized skill and training to handle these cases correctly. I have tried truck accident cases and achieved large verdicts in Utah and Idaho. .Due to my experience and results trying such cases I have been asked to present at national and regional lawyer seminars on best practices in litigating truck accident cases.

Thanks to Jeff Eisenberg and firm
We were devastated with the death of our son by a highway construction worker. Jeff had someone come to our home for interviews and to pick up information. He was very careful with our feelings at this difficult time. He discovered additional insurance coverage that was not initially revealed by the construction company. My husband and I discovered the importance of going with a highly respected attorney because the insurance company knew he was serious about taking our case all the way to court. The insurance company settled out of court and we were awarded twice as much as our initial lawyer told us was possible. We are so glad that we changed to Jeff's firm. I can't sign my name because I signed a confidentially agreement at settlement but I hope this recommendation helps someone else who has suffered a loss.
