Joe Dougherty co-hosts The Law Firm of Saltz, Mongelluzi and Bendesky Show with lawyers from one of the most reputable personal injury law firms in the nation.
Since its founding in 1998, Saltz Mongeluzzi & Bendesky has developed a national reputation as one of the country’s most successful personal injury law firms. Led by partner and founder Bob Mongeluzzi, SMB has built upon its initial foundation as the leading Philadelphia firm for worksite injuries and medical malpractice to become a national powerhouse in construction and transportation accidents.
SMB is widely considered to be the go-to law firm in the U.S. for catastrophic construction accidents—particularly those involving building and worksite collapses, and incidents involving cranes and aerial lifts.
Over the last decade, it has also successfully handled several mass casualty events involving transportation, including the 2015 Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia. Building on that experience, it is currently representing many of the plaintiffs in the 2018 Branson, Missouri duck boat disaster that claimed 17 lives.
With a roster of nationally-known practitioners and formidable financial resources, SMB has taken on some of the country’s most complex, technical, data, and document-intensive cases and won.
Dave L. Kwass does not have the usual lawyer resume—some of his not typical credentials include a Master’s Degree in English Literature from Georgetown, a summer job at the FBI Academy, a bartender in Charlottesville, Virginia, and a brief stint as a member in an early version of the Dave Matthews Band (before they hit it big).
In addition to trying to recover maximum compensation for his clients, Dave is committed to making the construction industry safer by writing articles, speaking at legal education events, and training other plaintiffs’ lawyers.
Adam J. Pantano handles a wide range of complex civil litigation involving motor vehicle and trucking accidents, construction accidents, premises, and product liability, personal injury, and workplace accidents.
His history of successful motor vehicle and trucking results includes a $10,750,000 million settlement on behalf of his client who was permanently injured when a commercial vehicle rear-ended him. Adam has also recovered in excess of one hundred million dollars for his clients who include workers injured in construction accidents due to unsafe and hazardous working environments. He recently recovered $6,500,000 on behalf of the Estate of a 29-year-old ironworker killed during the breakdown of a crane as a result of the crane operator’s violation of industry standards for breakdown of the crane.
