If you were injured because of someone else’s negligent or intentional actions, you might be entitled to compensation.

When you go to the hospital or your doctor’s office, you place your trust in the people who provide your treatment. Unfortunately, many people are seriously injured or killed each year in the U.S. because of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when the treatment a health care professional provides falls below the expected standard of care for similar professionals who treat the same types of conditions in the same geographic area. This means that the accepted standard of care will vary based on the medical field and the geographic area in which the treatment is delivered. Determining the standard of care in a malpractice case is the first step in determining whether the care that was provided deviated from it. Our attorneys retain medical experts to help determine both the standard of care and whether a doctor’s treatment fell below it. If we find that the care you received was substandard, we will help you pursue a malpractice claim.
Sexual abuse is a prevalent issue in Pennsylvania and occurs much more frequently than most people know. When the victims of sexual abuse are children, it is especially abhorrent. In many cases, child victims of sexual abuse are preyed upon by adults they trust. Sexual predators often come in the guise of respected authority figures, including teachers, preachers, pastors, bus drivers, coaches, and others. At Raynes & Lawn, we work to expose these predators and hold both them and the institutions for which they work accountable.
Filing civil sexual abuse claims allow victims to hold their abusers accountable even when they evaded criminal prosecution. Since the burden of proof in civil sexual abuse lawsuits is lower than that of criminal cases, it is possible to hold an abuser liable in a civil lawsuit even if he or she is not criminally prosecuted or is found not guilty after a criminal trial. Our goal is to both recover full compensation for our clients and also expose them so that similar incidents can be prevented in the future.

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.
