In Norristown, Pennsylvania, many people are injured in different types of accidents each year.

Personal injury claims are also called tort lawsuits and include a broad variety of different types of incidents. Most personal injury claims include negligence causes of action. Negligence occurs when someone fails to exercise the same degree of caution and care that a reasonably prudent person in the same situation would have used. If someone else negligently or intentionally injured you, you have the right to pursue compensation through a personal injury case. Some of the types of personal injury matters that are handled by our law firm include the following:
If you have been seriously injured because of someone else’s conduct, you might be left with unmanageable medical bills, lost wages, and emotional and psychological fallout.

Premises liability claims are personal injury lawsuits that deal with the duty businesses and property owners owe to keep their premises reasonably safe for their lawfully present customers and visitors. Property owners owe different duties of care that depend on the legal status of the people who are present on their property. If the visitors are lawfully present for business purposes, as customers, or as invited guests, the business or property owner must warn about any dangerous conditions that they know about and correct hazards that could foreseeably cause injuries. If they fail to do so, and someone is injured as a result, the business or property owner may be liable in a premises liability lawsuit.
Our premises liability attorneys handle all of the following types of cases:
When people go to the hospital or to their doctors’ offices, they trust that they will receive appropriate treatment. However, some doctors fail to provide treatment that meets the standard of care expected of physicians in their areas. When a doctor’s treatment fails to meet the standard of care, a patient can sustain serious injuries or die. Medical malpractice lawsuits allow the victims of medical negligence to pursue claims to hold the doctors accountable and recover damages for their economic and non-economic losses. Our medical malpractice attorneys work with medical experts to determine the applicable standard of care and to figure out whether a patient’s injuries were caused by medical errors. If we find that your injuries likely were caused by medical malpractice, we are prepared to help you hold the responsible doctor accountable and recover the damages you deserve.
The sexual abuse of children is abhorrent and unfortunately common. Many children are abused each year by people who hold positions of authority over them. Sexual predators might choose to work for organizations through which they can gain ready access to potential abuse victims and can include many different people, including counselors, teachers, coaches, pastors, bus drivers, and more. The attorneys at Raynes & Lawn believe that both the perpetrators of abuse and the institutions that fail to protect the children in their care should be held accountable for their wrongful actions.
By filing civil sexual abuse lawsuits, families can hold their abusers liable and help to prevent similar abuse from occurring in the future to others. Our attorneys work with trained counselors to identify signs of sexual abuse and understand the long-term effects it might have. Filing sexual abuse lawsuits can help to expose perpetrators who abuse children and the institutions that fail to protect the children entrusted to them in addition to providing compensation to the victims for the harm caused to them.
