Each year, some people are injured or killed in accidents in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. Some of these accidents are preventable and are caused by the actions of other individuals or companies. When people are seriously injured in accidents that result from the negligent or intentional actions of others, the victims have the right to pursue compensation through personal injury lawsuits. These types of lawsuits are civil actions that fall under the state’s tort laws and provide a mechanism for victims to hold those who caused their injuries accountable for their actions.
The injury attorneys at Raynes & Lawn have decades of experience fighting for the rights of people who have been harmed through no fault of their own. We strongly believe that accident victims deserve full compensation for their losses and dedicate ourselves to holding defendants liable. Our willingness to work hard for our clients has helped us establish a decades-long track record of success through which we have recovered billions of dollars for our clients. Our focus is on helping our clients rather than simply on handling claims.
If you are unexpectedly injured in an accident caused by someone else, the experience can be life-changing. Many people who sustain serious injuries face mounting medical expenses combined with income losses, and they also might deal with pain, suffering, and other types of problems. The staggering losses people can suffer in negligence accidents are why Pennsylvania’s tort laws exist. These laws provide a way for negligence victims to hold the people who caused their injuries accountable and recover compensation so that they can be made financially whole. Our attorneys fight for the rights of negligence victims and work to recover all of the compensation they deserve for their injuries.

Car accidents are almost commonplace for people in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. While some accidents only result in property damage, others are catastrophic events that result in serious injuries or death. Most auto accidents are preventable and are caused by driver errors. When a driver negligently causes a serious injury or fatality accident, he or she might be liable to pay damages to the victims or surviving family members. Our lawyers conduct in-depth investigations of motor vehicle collisions to identify all of the potentially liable parties and maximize our clients’ recovery amounts. We work with investigators and experts to build the strongest possible cases. We frequently convince insurance companies to fairly settle our clients’ cases, but we are not afraid to fight for our clients at trials when we need to do so to ensure they receive full compensation.
Property owners have a legal duty to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition so that lawfully present visitors will not be injured by known hazards. When a property owner knows about a danger or reasonably should know about its existence, the owner must warn visitors about its existence and promptly fix it to prevent foreseeable injuries. For example, a business cannot leave spilled oil pooling on the floor because people could slip, fall, and hurt themselves when walking over it. When a property owner violates this duty, and someone is injured as a result, the owner might be liable to pay damages to the injured victim.
At Raynes & Lawn, our premises liability lawyers accept a broad variety of cases, including the following:
Our premises liability lawyers can assess your case and explain whether you have grounds to file a claim.
Medical providers are expected to provide care to their patients that meets the expected standard of care for similar professionals in their geographic areas. This means that a doctor must provide the same type of treatment that a reasonably skilled, competent physician would provide under similar treatment conditions. When a doctor’s care falls below this standard, patients can be seriously injured as a result. Medical malpractice claims allow patients who have been injured because of medical negligence to recover compensation for their losses.
To help our clients prove their medical malpractice claims, our attorneys work closely with experts to determine the proper standard of care and show that the treatment our clients received fell below it. We also gather evidence showing that our clients would not have suffered their injuries unless malpractice had occurred. Filing a medical malpractice lawsuit might help you to recover damages for your losses while also helping to prevent other people from suffering similar injuries in the future.
Adults are supposed to protect children, but some are predators and sexually abuse them instead. Thousands of children are victimized by sexual predators every year. In many cases, the abusers are people whom the children and their parents know and trust, and the predators take advantage of their positions to abuse children in their care.
Many predators seek positions in which they will have ready access to children and might be employed as teachers, counselors, clergy members, bus drivers, or coaches. In some cases, the institutions that employ these predators try to bury evidence of what has happened to evade responsibility. Our civil sexual abuse lawyers work to hold both the predators and their employing institutions accountable for their wrongful actions and to expose them so that other children will not be subjected to this type of abuse. People who are sexually abused as children might suffer long-lasting ramifications, and we work to recover compensation to meet their needs.
Whether you have suffered abuse or been involved in an accident, the legal team at Raynes & Lawn is ready to help with your claim. Our team can advise you on receiving compensation for your injuries and holding those responsible for their action. Make sure to call the office at 1-800-535-1797 to schedule a free consultation.
