How Sean Burke Law Is Different From Other Law Firms
If you’re injured because someone or some company wasn’t acting safely, the injuries can leave you in pain feeling lonely and frustrated. The person or business that harmed you won’t admit that they did anything wrong. You don’t know which doctors to see to get better. Insurance investigators call asking personal questions and then deny your claim.
If you’re seriously injured, I work to make those worries go away. I deal with the insurance companies for you. I know how to hold wrongdoers responsible. If they refuse to fix your harms and losses, then I AM ready for trial to win the compensation you deserve.
Unlike some law firms that sign up hundreds of cases and treat clients like a number, i work with a small number of seriously injured clients. I give each client personal attention from start to finish.
You will know that I take your case seriously.
A recent study in the Journal of Patient Safety found that medical errors may lead to more than 400,000 deaths per year in the U.S. Patient harm in hospitals must be taken more seriously if it is to be curtailed.

Collisions are a serious public health problem. Motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Over 30,000 people are killed in crashes each year. Alcohol-impaired driving accounts for 31% of all motor vehicle fatalities.
