$1.5 million settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented the family of a woman killed in a crosswalk by an inattentive driver. The client was struck at low speed by an eleven-passenger student transport van. At the time of the accident, the driver of the van was performing a left-hand turn at a four way stop sign intersection. The driver of the van failed to visually clear the intersection for pedestrians before striking the client. As a result of the accident, the client sustained a severe head injury and died in the hospital three days later. The client was a healthy 69-year-old woman with two adult children. Goebert Law was able to secure video of the accident which demonstrated the clear liability of the van driver and no comparative fault of the client. Additionally, Goebert Law worked closely with the children of the victim and a media company to produce a compelling video presentation demonstrating the profound loss suffered by the victim’s children and family. After providing the video to the insurance carrier, the case settled and remains the largest wrongful death settlement if its kind in the county for the year 2022.
$924,000.00 award – Goebert Law, LLC represented a construction project manager who was severely injured on a residential construction site when a defectively designed, constructed, and installed temporary staircase collapsed underneath him. The staircase as designed and constructed was not compliant with code nor was it compliant with the construction site contract requirements. The staircase also had not been properly secured or anchored to the home. Several contractors working on the site were responsible for the design, construction, and safety of the staircase; however, all of them denied responsibility for the client’s injuries. As a result of the staircase collapse, the client sustained a severe knee injury including a full quadricep’s tendon rupture with associated medial and lateral tears and meniscus tear. Due to his injuries, the client was unable to return fully to his lucrative career as a construction site project manager. Goebert Law consulted with engineering and staircase design experts as well as medical and vocational experts, and, after three days of trial, successfully proved each contractor at fault for the client’s injuries. The award compensated the client for all of his harms and losses.
$350,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented an individual who was a back seat passenger in a vehicle that was rear ended by a Ford truck on Kelly Drive in Philadelphia, PA. The client sustained significant internal injuries, including, a liver laceration, rib fractures, and a herniated disc in her spine. The truck was owned and operated by an out of state disreputable media entertainment company who maintained only minimal liability insurance. After collecting the liability insurance policy limits held by the media entertainment company, Goebert Law conducted a thorough investigation for underinsured motorist coverage in order to maximize the client’s recovery. Goebert Law discovered and recovered an additional two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in underinsured motorist coverage from the insurance carrier for the vehicle in which the client was a passenger as well as the client’s own insurance carrier. The additional money recovered by Goebert Law fully compensated the client for all her harms and losses.
$325,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented an individual who sustained a lower leg fracture from a fall caused by a defective and improperly maintained construction area in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a result of the fall, the client underwent two surgeries, lost time from work, missed time with family, endured pain and suffering, and faced an uncertain medical prognosis. Through aggressive advocacy, thorough investigation, and by consulting with appropriate engineering and medical experts, Goebert Law was able to prove negligence by the defendant and obtain a result which compensated the client for all of their harms and losses.
$163,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented an individual who was a passenger in a vehicle that improperly merged into traffic and was struck by a pick-up truck traveling approximately 40 MPH. The collision caused the client to sustain a severe head injury, including a concussion, post-concussion syndrome, and cognitive impairments including attention, concentration, and memory deficits. The client missed time from work, underwent a series of concussion therapies and treatments, and endured headaches, insomnia, and noise and light sensitivity for months. Goebert Law consulted with a concussion specialist and a neuropsychologist so that the full extent of the client’s damages were detailed in medical expert reports. After receiving the insurance policy limits from the at fault driver, Goebert Law obtained a recovery from the client’s underinsured auto policy so that the client was fully compensated for all harms and losses.
$80,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented an individual who slipped and fell on snow and ice outside an entryway to a restaurant. As a result of the fall, the client sustained a broken wrist requiring surgical repair. The owner of the restaurant and its insurance carrier argued that the area where the fall occurred had been properly treated for snow and ice and the accident was not their fault. Goebert Law conducted a full investigation and discovered that the records of the snow and ice removal contractor for the restaurant in fact revealed no appropriate snow and ice removal service had taken place prior to the client’s fall. Additionally, Goebert Law’s investigation uncovered a witness who had fallen in the same area prior to the client’s fall and had reported the fall to the restaurant. After presenting the facts of Goebert Law’s investigation to the restaurant and its insurance carrier, it agreed to compensate the client fully for all her harms and losses.
$70,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented an individual who was the driver of a minivan rear ended on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia, PA by an eighteen-wheeler towing a trailer fully loaded with lumber. The impact between the vehicles was minimal and caused only minor damage to the client’s vehicle. However, although the impact was minor, it caused a whiplash injury to the client’s neck and post-concussion syndrome as well as cervical and lumbar radiculopathy. The insurance carrier for the trucking company refused to fully accept responsibility for the client’s injuries citing the minimal impact between the vehicles. Goebert Law consulted with forensic biomechanical engineers who helped prove the client’s injuries were directly caused by the forces resulting from the collision between the eighteen-wheeler and the minivan. The insurance carrier for the trucking company subsequently agreed to pay for all of the client’s harms and losses.
$45,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented an individual who was the driver of a vehicle that that was rear ended while lawfully attempting to make a right-hand turn. The at-fault driver was travelling at approximately 45-50 MPH when the impact occurred and, according to the police report, was “looking for something in her car” at the time of the collision. The collision caused the client to sustain a head injury, including a concussion, post-concussion syndrome, and cognitive impairments including attention, concentration, and memory deficits. The client underwent a series of concussion therapies and treatments, and endured posttraumatic headaches and insomnia. Goebert Law’s thorough investigation proved the driver who rear ended the client was 100% at fault for the accident. Additionally, Goebert Law consulted with a concussion specialist who reported on the full extent of the client’s injuries so that the client was fully compensated for all harms and losses.
$40,000.00 settlement – Goebert Law, LLC represented a four-year-old girl who sustained a fractured nose and head injury as a result of a soccer goal tipping over. The goal lacked a required anchoring system which would have secured the goal to the ground and prevented the injury. The injury occurred when the client and several friends were playing on or near the soccer goal. When the goal tipped over, the crossbar of the goal landed on the client’s face and head. The fracture to the nose was severe and required surgical repair. Goebert Law discovered internal documentation from the youth soccer association responsible for the accident that it was aware that injuries frequently occur from soccer goals tipping over, and, as a result, the association required that all goals be properly secured to the ground. Goebert Law successfully proved the association failed to follow its own policy and procedures to ensure the soccer goal which fell on the client was properly anchored resulting in a maximum recovery for the client.

The client’s son had a will which left his entire estate to his “fiancé.” The son and the fiancé; however, had ended their relationship several years prior to his death. After an extensive and thorough investigation, Goebert Law was able to track down and uncover a second will the son had written subsequent to the will leaving everything to his fiancé. The second will left a large portion of the estate to the client, the decedent’s mother, and the fiancé. Goebert Law prepared and filed a will contest discrediting and refuting the initial will leaving the entire estate to the fiancé. After filing the papers with the court, all parties agreed to negotiate, and the client received the largest portion of his son’s estate.
