Many different types of claims fall within Pennsylvania’s personal injury law. Personal injury cases are civil claims that arise when people are injured because of negligence, recklessness, or wrongful acts of other people or entities. If you have been injured by someone else or have lost your loved one in an accident caused by another person, you might be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit. Filing a personal injury claim might allow you to hold the defendant accountable for his or her actions and recover compensation for the economic and non-economic injuries you have suffered as a result.
Some of the types of personal injury cases our attorneys handle include the following:
A serious accident can impact all areas of your life. Many people who are injured because of the negligent actions of others face debilitating injuries, significant medical bills, losses of income, and emotional difficulties. If someone else caused your injuries because of negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct, you should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney at our firm. We can assess your case and explain the legal remedies that might be available to you.
In Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, auto accidents are common. While many car accidents only involve minor property damage and a degree of annoyance, some accidents are catastrophic and result in serious injuries or the loss of life. Most auto accidents are preventable, and when they are caused because of the negligence of motorists or responsible companies, the victims are entitled to pursue compensation through auto accident claims. After you are injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, it is important for you to retain a lawyer as soon as possible. Working with an attorney from the start of your case can help you to avoid making potentially critical errors and allow your lawyer to fully investigate what happened so that your compensation might be maximized.
Some cases within the umbrella of personal injury or tort law involve legal theories of premises liability. These cases involve the duty of care that businesses and property owners owe to people who are lawfully present on their premises. Property owners and businesses must promptly correct any dangerous conditions that could foreseeably injure lawful visitors that they either know about or reasonably should have discovered. They also must warn visitors about the existence of these types of hazards so that they can be avoided. When a property owner or business violates this duty of care, a victim who is injured as a result can file a premises liability lawsuit. Some examples of the types of claims that might involve premises liability causes of action include the following:
We can review what happened to you and help you determine whether filing a claim is warranted.
While simply being unhappy with the outcome of your treatment is not enough to support a medical malpractice claim, you might have a viable claim if the care you received fell below the accepted standard of care. Doctors and other health care providers are required to provide treatment with the same degree of skill that a reasonably competent provider would provide in the same geographic area and within the same field of practice. The accepted standard of care depends on where a doctor is located and the field in which he or she delivers care. For example, an obstetrician’s care would be compared according to the accepted standard of care for other obstetricians in Conshohocken and not against the accepted standard of care for obstetricians in New York City. The attorneys at Raynes & Lawn work with medical experts to determine the accepted standard of care and to figure out whether a particular doctor’s treatment deviated from that standard. We can investigate your case and work with medical experts to determine liability. If it appears that medical malpractice occurred, we will work to recover full compensation for all of your losses.
Some of the most horrific cases we handle involve the sexual abuse of children. Thousands of children are sexually abused each year in the U.S., and we strongly believe that the perpetrators should be held fully accountable for their wrongful actions. In many cases, sexual predators are people who are trusted by children and their parents and can include coaches, teachers, camp counselors, priests, and more. These types of predators often work for institutions and organizations through which they gain access to their victims. In addition to the perpetrators, our lawyers go after these institutions and organizations to hold them accountable for their negligence in allowing sexual abuse to occur.
Our sexual abuse lawyers have advocated for children and families who have been the victims of sexual abuse for decades. When we represent victims, we protect their confidentiality at all times. Our goals in fighting for the rights of sexual abuse victims include holding the perpetrators and institutions accountable, recovering damages, and deterring others from engaging in similar actions in the future.
