Unfortunately, some people living in or visiting Media, Pennsylvania are seriously injured or killed in accidents each year. While some accidents are unavoidable, some happen because of others’ negligent or intentional acts. Pennsylvania law provides injured negligence victims with a way to seek legal remedies for their losses by filing injury lawsuits against the responsible parties. Personal injury cases fall under the state’s tort laws, which allow victims to file lawsuits against those who have caused them harm.
At Raynes & Lawn, our injury lawyers have fought for the rights of negligence victims for decades. We understand how to build the strongest possible liability claims on our clients’ behalf to help them hold those who caused their injuries and losses accountable for their wrongful conduct. Over our careers, we have recovered billions of dollars on our clients’ behalf. We believe strongly in helping people rather than simply handling cases.
Suffering serious injuries in an accident can be life-altering. You might be left with debilitating injuries, mounting medical bills, wage losses, and other types of issues. When someone else caused your injuries and losses, you might have grounds to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation. Our lawyers strongly believe that people who have been injured deserve to be fully compensated for their losses, and we aggressively advocate on our clients’ behalf to help them recover what they deserve.
If you retain us, you can expect our lawyers to begin working on your case immediately. We conduct thorough investigations and work with experts and investigators to help us determine liability and prove our clients’ claims. Because of the importance of having experienced legal representation, we divide our attorneys and legal staff into teams based on different areas of personal injury law. This approach means that the attorneys and staff assigned to work with you will be experienced in representing others who have suffered similar types of accidents in the past.
Our attorneys represent negligence victims in a broad variety of personal injury cases, including the following:
If someone else acted in such a way that caused your accident and injuries, you should consult an experienced lawyer at our firm to learn more about the rights that you might have.
Many people are involved in auto accidents in Media, Pennsylvania each year. Many of these accidents are only minor fender benders, but some are serious accidents involving injuries and fatalities. When the cause of a car crash is a driver or company acting negligently, any injured victims or the families of those who are killed have a right to pursue legal remedies through car accident claims. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate motor vehicle collisions to determine every party that contributed to their cause. Our careful approach allows us to maximize our clients’ recovery and present strong liability cases to the insurance companies. In many cases, we can convince the insurance companies to provide fair settlement offers, but we are not afraid to fight for our clients at jury trials whenever doing so is necessary.
Businesses and property owners must keep their property in a safe condition to protect people who are lawfully present from suffering foreseeable injuries. This duty requires property owners and businesses to fix any hazardous conditions that they know about or that they reasonably should know about. When a property owner fails to promptly fix a dangerous condition, and someone subsequently suffers a foreseeable injury because of the danger, the property owner might be liable to pay damages to the victim. For example, a property owner cannot leave a torn rug in place that could cause someone to trip and injure himself or herself. If the rug is left in place, the property owner might be liable if a victim then trips, falls, and suffers injuries.
The premises liability attorneys at Raynes & Lawn represent people in a variety of different premises liability claims, including the following:
Our premises liability lawyers can assess your case and explain whether you have grounds to file a claim.
Doctors and other medical providers must provide treatment to their patients meeting the expected standard of care for practitioners in their fields of practice and geographic areas. When a medical error rises to the level of medical negligence and causes a patient’s injuries or death, the responsible health care providers might be liable for medical malpractice. While doctors are not expected to be perfect, they must at least provide the same level of care as a reasonably competent physician would under the same circumstances.
If you or your family member sustained serious injuries as a result of medical mistakes, you could be entitled to recover compensation through a medical malpractice claim. Our attorneys work closely with medical experts to determine the appropriate standard of care and whether a medical provider’s treatment deviated from that standard. Medical malpractice lawsuits can help victims hold negligent medical professionals accountable and prevent other patients from suffering similar treatment failures in the future.
