Many different types of accidents occur in Chester, Pennsylvania each year, and some result in injuries and fatalities. While some of these incidents cannot be avoided, others are preventable and are caused by human error. The law provides a mechanism for negligence victims who have sustained injuries and the families of those who are killed in accidents caused by the negligence of others to pursue legal remedies, including compensation for their losses. Personal injury claims allow victims to hold the people and companies that negligently caused their accidents and injuries accountable for their wrongful actions and recover damages. These types of lawsuits fall under the state’s civil tort laws.

Motor vehicle collisions happen all of the time. While some of these accidents only result in property damage, others are catastrophic crashes that result in serious injuries or deaths. When a motorist or an entity negligently causes a serious collision, the injured victims and the surviving family members of those who are killed are entitled to pursue compensation through personal injury and wrongful death claims. Our lawyers work with accident reconstruction experts and investigators to build the strongest possible liability cases to help our clients recover all of the compensation that they deserve.
Premises liability cases involve the duty owed by a property owner or business to the people who lawfully visit their properties. Property owners must maintain their properties to protect the safety of their visitors. They must promptly repair any dangers that they know or reasonably should know about to prevent people from suffering foreseeable injuries. When they fail to do so, the property owners or businesses can be liable to pay damages to the people who are harmed as a result.
We represent people in all of the following types of premises liability claims:
Medical providers in Chester, Pennsylvania are expected to provide treatment that meets or exceeds the standard of care. The standard of care is the type of treatment that reasonably competent medical providers in the same fields of practice who work in the same area would provide in a given situation. When a doctor’s treatment falls below the standard of care, serious injuries can result.
If you were seriously injured because of a doctor’s medical errors, you might be entitled to recover substantial compensation for your losses. Our lawyers work with medical experts to determine liability and help us to prove our clients’ cases.
Many children are victimized by sexual predators each year in Pennsylvania. In many cases, sexual abusers are people whom the parents and children know and trust. Predators frequently seek employment in fields through which they will have easy access to children and can be employed as coaches, teachers, preachers, bus drivers, and more.
Our civil sexual abuse lawyers believe in holding both the institutions that employ sexual predators and the abusers who harm children accountable for their actions. Institutions through which sexual abuse sometimes occurs often try to hide evidence of sexual abuse, which can result in more children being victimized. We work to hold the wrongful predators and institutions accountable for what they have done and to prevent similar abuse from happening in the future.
