Providing 20 Years of Commercial & Residential Claim Representation
Whether you own a home or a business, you pay a great deal of money to protect the structure (interior and exterior) and the contents in it, such as furniture, appliances, electronics, and jewelry. Through your homeowners or business policy, you pay for the repairs and/or replacement of items damaged due to water, fire, wind, theft, and vandalism. You anticipate something will happen, especially if the area your home is in is prone to bad storms and flooding. Or the area your business is in prone to crime. You don’t expect your insurance company to give you a hard time paying for damages. Yet, that is just what happened. If the insurance company denies your claim stating the evidence you provided (e.g. original receipts, photos and/ or videos) is not valid or insufficient, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit.
The law firm you choose should have proven success at getting the compensation from insurance companies as well as send a message to the insurance companies that bad faith practices will not be tolerated. At Saffren & Weinberg, our attorneys have gone up against many insurance companies and won large settlements for our clients.
Damages Caused by a Third Party
There have been partial and total home and store collapses due to a third party’s negligence. The third parties include architects, engineers, L & I inspectors and construction companies. One or all did not do their due diligence to make sure the structures (before, during and after construction) did not cause damage to nearby structures. There have been many cases where construction workers have dug too close to the adjacent structure causing cracks in the foundation, further causing the other structure to collapse. In some cases, people and pets have been injured or killed. Almost everything these homeowners or business owners have worked hard for is destroyed.
Or, lightning has struck a tree on your neighbor’s yard and it has fallen onto your home. The insurance adjustor will only pay the minimum when there is clearly structural damage. The home is determined to be a danger to your family and must be rebuilt. Who will cover the cost of valuables damaged inside the home, the hotel rooms for your family and other miscellaneous expenses? Our attorneys will help calculate the cost of the item(s) to be repaired or replaced, the loss of use of an item(s) and sentimental value of the item(s).
We Recover Compensatory & Punitive Damages
When it comes to property damage, a plaintiff can sue for compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory (also called actual damages) means the money to awarded to compensate for the cost to repair or replace damaged property (i.e. a totaled car, water damage in the basement or landscaping torn up by a careless driver). Punitive means to punish. This is additional money that awarded to the plaintiff to punish the defendant for misconduct. Our lawyers have access to resources to help prove who is at fault and the expertise to get the cash awards so you can get your life back.

We Have a Proven Track Record in Getting Large Settlements
We give our trust to doctors and hospitals to receive the best care. You or a loved one was injured or has a disease that requires the best treatment. You are nervous and upset and just want the ordeal to be over. But, what happens if you get a bad outcome? Is it medical malpractice? To know if you have a medical malpractice case, you need to have proof that the doctor was negligent. At Saffren & Weinberg, we can determine if you have a medical malpractice case.
Medical malpractice is when a physician is negligent in providing standard care and his or her patient is injured as a result. What exactly is standard care? Standard care is what the medical community agrees upon for what diagnostic tests and treatments that are appropriate to your condition. A doctor must make decisions that align with what the medical community finds acceptable.
When there is a bad result from a surgery or treatment, a patient cannot sue for what could happen, only for what did happen. The patient must prove that there was poor standard care.
