Law Firm Overview

The Gertler Law Firm, LLP was established in 1975, by Judge David Gertler and his son, M. H. "Mike Gertler. Louis Gertler joined the firm in the 1990s and Josh Gertler in 2010.
Today, the Gertler Law Firm is a prominent New Orleans law firm in the field of toxic torts, product liability, and personal injury. Today, the firm has six attorneys serving the residents of New Orleans, the state of Louisiana and other plaintiffs across the country.

Our reputation with mesothelioma, product liability and wrongful death claims has enabled our firm to move into other injury and accident areas and to date, we have assisted thousands of clients. In the state of Louisiana, the Gertler firm prosecuted some of the first asbestos personal injury suits including mesothelioma and asbestosis claims, the first silicosis suits, and the first product liability suits against respirator manufacturers.

Our firm also was a leader in a group of prominent Louisiana law firms that obtained a groundbreaking and unprecedented judgment against the tobacco industry, which ordered the tobacco companies to establish a $591 million cessation program for the citizens of Louisiana.

Areas of Law Description

Our firm offers a wide spectrum of injury and accident representation and would be happy to discuss your particular injury - or a family member's injury. Our practice areas include but not limited to the following:

- Mesothelioma

You didn’t know. You were simply doing your job, or maybe a loved one brought asbestos home on his clothes. Either way, you were exposed, and now you’ve been diagnosed with Mesothelioma. The companies responsible for your cancer need to be brought to justice. You need an experienced Mesothelioma attorney who will fight for you. Who will gather the evidence and make sure you get the justice you deserve.

- Birth Injury

While accidents happen during childbirth, many times they are preventable. And the injuries that occur can be serious and require long-term care. You need an experienced and qualified birth injury attorney who understands how to handle your unique case.

- Nursing Home Abuse

Placing a loved one in a nursing home isn’t an easy decision. You made the choice so they could get the best possible care. However, you’ve already uncovered abuse or neglect. You want to keep your loved one safe, but how do you hold the nursing home and staff responsible? I am Mike Gertler, a nursing home abuse attorney in New Orleans. I help victims of nursing home abuse hold their offenders responsible.

- Construction Accidents

If you were injured because of a construction company’s negligence or violation of safety codes, you may be entitled to file a tort lawsuit. But the people responsible will work quickly to hide any evidence. That’s why you need an experienced construction accident attorney to represent you. Someone who will quickly investigate your case and fight for you in the courtroom.

- Dog Bites

If you’ve been attacked by a dog, you know how devastating it can be. The attack not only leaves physical scars, but emotional ones. What do you do? How do you hold the owner responsible for what happened? The first step is to hire a qualified dog bite attorney. Someone who understands how dog attack cases work and know how to get you the compensation you deserve.

- Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury can happen almost anywhere. Maybe you, or a loved one, were in a severe car wreck, motorcycle crash, or workplace accident. The hard part? An injury to the brain can affect every aspect of your daily life. You need someone who’s on your side. You need an attorney who has handled traumatic brain injury cases before. Most of all, you need someone who will fight for you or your loved one.

- Trucking Accidents

Truck accident injuries are often severe and can include broken bones, brain injuries and spinal cord damage. If you, or a loved one, have been involved in a truck accident, you know how devastating it can be. You need the help of an experienced truck accident attorney. Someone who understands state and federal laws, and will hold the truck and insurance company responsible.

- Wrongful Death

As New Orleans wrongful death attorneys, our firm has been representing families that have lost a loved one due to the wrongdoing of an individual or business for more than 35 years. To date, we have successfully pursued more than 100 wrongful death claims on behalf of our clients. However, we do not limit our work to only the New Orleans area. We've helped clients throughout the state of Louisiana, the Southeast and across the country.

- Premises Liability

Each year, hundreds and hundreds of Louisiana residents are injured when they fall – or in some other way – while on property owned or operated by someone else. These instances in which property owners are found liable for injuries sustained on their property are commonly known as “premises liability” cases.

- Defective Product & Product Liability Claims

In Louisiana, a defective product is one that causes injury or death as a result of a design or construction flaw, lack of proper labeling or warning, or breach of the manufacturer's express warranty. In these cases, the manufacturer of the defective product that caused the injury or death, as well as those that sold the product, may be liable for the injury or death and subject to a product liability lawsuit.

- Car Accidents

As Car Accident Attorneys in New Orleans, our firm has been helping individuals and families throughout southern Louisiana that were seriously injured in car and truck related accidents for more than thirty years. Every client we have represented was injured due to the negligence or carelessness of another driver, including drivers that were employed by a business at the time of the accident and using that businesses vehicle or truck.

- Medical Malpractice

When mistakes happen in a hospital that causes another serious injury or even death, those responsible can be held liable for medical malpractice. For all injury and accident cases, the victim does not have to pay the law firm to represent them. Personal Injury claims are taken on a contingency fee basis - meaning we do not charge for our services unless we secure a settlement for you or are successful in the courtroom.

- Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents happen, but if the other driver was negligent, they need to be held responsible. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident or have a loved one who’s been killed, you may be left wondering what to do. You’re facing high medical bills, lost wages, mountains of paperwork from the insurance company and perhaps a long-term disability. You need an advocate. You need someone who understands what you’re going through, and also how to get you the compensation you need.

- Louisiana Successions

Surviving the death of a loved one is a distressing, painful experience. Added to this already stressful time is the matter of sorting out Louisiana’s succession (or estate planning) laws, which can be a little confusing: “What happens if there’s a will?” “What happens if there’s not a will?”

Or perhaps there is no immediate need – like losing a loved one – you just want to put in place a solid succession plan. Whatever the reason is, the Gertler Law Firm has 30+ years representing clients just like you. We definitely can provide you with the answers you need.

- Wills

You might feel that drafting a will, a living will, or a trust for your disabled child – whatever your situation—is an extremely daunting task. That is why we are here…to make your planning process as painless as possible. We have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, so you can rest assured that our attorneys and staff will take care of you with professionalism and unparalleled experience.
