Accidents & Personal Injury
Binghamton Area Accident & Personal Injury Attorneys Representing New York’s Southern Tier and Northern Pennsylvania
At Coughlin & Gerhart, our personal injury practice is centered on the idea that people who have been the victim of another party’s negligence should receive full compensation for their injuries and other financial losses. We recognize that anyone who is involved in an accident never expects to require the services of a lawyer, and for many, the experience can be an overwhelming one. We aim to change that.
People in New York’s Southern Tier and Northern Pennsylvania choose our firm because we offer the resources that only a larger firm can. These include highly experienced trial attorneys with a strong record of negotiation and courtroom success, and access to medical and accident experts whose analysis and testimony can significantly strengthen an injury claim. Coughlin & Gerhart has the financial resources to prepare powerful cases and to resist “low ball” settlement offers from insurance companies, which some firms find tempting. At the same time, we provide our clients with one-on-one interaction with their attorney(s), and our size allows us to ensure that anyone who seeks our advice receives attentive, personalized service from an experienced lawyer and legal staff.
With our experience and independence, we can stand by you as long as you need us, so you can be sure we’re always acting in your best interest. Of course, we offer free consultations and contingent fee arrangements — meaning that we are paid our fee only if you recover damages.
