Each year in Horsham, Pennsylvania, many people are injured in a variety of different types of incidents. While some people are injured in accidents that are no one’s fault, some people suffer serious injuries or are killed in incidents that are caused by others’ negligent or intentional acts. Personal injury or tort law provides a way for the victims of negligent or intentional acts to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions and recover damages. Torts are civil wrongs that are committed by people or companies against others and that result in injuries and harm.

Most adults will be involved in car accidents at some point in their lives. Motor vehicle collisions happen all of the time. While some of these accidents are relatively minor, others are serious collisions that involve debilitating injuries or fatalities. One thing that most car accidents have in common is that they are preventable. When a driver, parts manufacturer, or another party negligently causes an accident that injures or kills someone, the victim or the surviving family members can pursue claims against the defendants. Our attorneys promptly investigate what happened in our clients’ motor vehicle crashes to identify all potentially liable parties and build the strongest possible cases of liability for our clients. Our strong work frequently allows us to recover fair settlements or favorable verdicts in our clients’ favor.
Premises liability cases are personal injury claims that deal with the duty owed by a business or another property owner to keep their properties in a safe condition for customers, guests, and others who are legally present for business purposes. Property owners and operators must fix any dangerous conditions that could cause foreseeable injuries to people who are lawfully present when the owners know about the existence of the conditions or should reasonably know. When a property owner or operator fails to fix a hazardous condition, and someone is injured as a result, the victim can file a claim against the property owner or business to recover compensation. Premises liability claims involve many different scenarios. A few of the types of premises liability cases our attorneys handle include the following:
When you go to your doctor’s office or the hospital, you place a significant degree of trust in the people who treat you. While most doctors and other medical professionals are competent and good at their jobs, some make medical mistakes that seriously injure or kill patients. Medical malpractice claims can be filed against doctors and other health care professionals that provide substandard care and injure or kill patients.
Medical malpractice cases are complex. The accepted standard of care can differ, depending on the health care professional’s field of practice and the location in which the treatment was delivered. We work with medical experts to investigate potential malpractice claims. When a malpractice lawsuit is filed, Pennsylvania requires a certificate of merit to be filed attesting that a medical expert has reviewed the evidence and believes that the care that was provided fell below the accepted standard of care.
