“I do not simply move my clients through the system. I go to bat for my people to ensure they get fair compensation.”

Some personal injury attorneys go through the motions. They take your case, let the process run its course, and simply accept whatever is handed down. Many insurance corporations count on this when it comes to relinquishing compensation to those who need it most after a workplace injury, car accident, collision with a semi truck, motorcycle wreck, or wrongful death of a loved one.

The Law Office of Terrence J. Salerno refuses to give in to these unfair practices and will work tirelessly to defend Omaha families affected by personal injuries. If you file for a lawsuit with Terrence Salerno, the insurance corporations will know you mean business and you’re not backing down. Terrence has a reputation for taking personal injury matters to trial and winning for his clients.
