Overview

Jessica Smeriglio concentrates her practice on general liability cases and medical malpractice cases, representing the region’s top healthcare systems and hospitals, construction companies and major universities. She has defended numerous cases involving construction site accidents, motor vehicle accidents, slip trip and fall accidents, assault and battery, and medical negligence claims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Before joining the GMR team, Jessica worked as a commercial claims specialist at a major national insurance company for six years. Her insurance industry background includes investigating and evaluating coverage and liability issues for auto, premises, and general liability claims.
