Many people are injured in various types of accidents in Pottstown, Pennsylvania each year. While some of these accidents and injuries are no one’s fault, others are caused by the intentional or negligent conduct of other people or businesses. Personal injury or tort law is a branch of civil law that provides the victims of civil wrongs with an avenue to pursue damages when they are injured because of others’ wrongful or negligent actions. Filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person or entity that caused your injuries might allow you to hold the defendant accountable while recovering fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Personal injury law encompasses many different types of accidents and intentional acts. Pennsylvania recognizes that people who are injured by others deserve to be fully compensated. As a result, negligence victims are entitled to file lawsuits against the individuals and companies that have wronged them and caused their injuries and other losses.

Many people are involved in auto accidents in and around Pottstown, Pennsylvania each year. Some accidents only involve minor property damage and cause annoyance, but others are serious and cause injuries or fatalities. Regardless of whether an accident is relatively minor or severe, it likely was preventable. Most car accidents are caused by the negligent behavior of motorists or companies. When a motor vehicle crash is caused by negligence and results in serious injuries or deaths, our attorneys work hard to help the victims recover all of the compensation to which they should be entitled.
The lawyers at Raynes & Lawn know how devastating it can be to sustain serious injuries in a collision because of the actions of others.

Landowners, businesses, and government agencies have a duty to maintain the premises they operate in reasonably safe and hazard-free conditions. This duty of care is owed to people who are lawfully present on the property so that they will not suffer foreseeable injuries because of the existence of dangerous conditions. Property owners must promptly repair any dangerous defects in their property that could result in injuries and warn people about their existence until they have the chance to repair them. When a property owner fails to fix dangerous conditions on a property, resulting in injuries to a lawfully present visitor, the victim has the right to pursue damages through a lawsuit.
Our premises liability lawyers handle all of the following types of claims:
Doctors and other medical care providers are trusted by their patients to provide high-quality treatment to help the patients recover from their illnesses or injuries. While doctors are human and sometimes make mistakes, a patient might have a claim for medical malpractice when a medical error rises to the level of medical negligence and injures the patient. Health care providers are expected to provide treatment with the same degree of skill that reasonably competent providers in their regions would provide under the same treatment conditions. When the care provided by a doctor fails to meet the accepted standard of care, and a patient is injured as a result, the patient can file a medical malpractice claim against all of the parties involved.
Pennsylvania requires plaintiffs to file certificates of merit when they file medical malpractice lawsuits. These certificates demonstrate that medical experts have reviewed what occurred and believe that the treatment provided to the patient failed to meet the accepted standard of care. Our medical malpractice lawyers partner with medical experts to investigate our clients’ cases and build the strongest possible cases of liability so that they can hold the negligent medical professionals accountable and recover compensation for their losses.
Child sexual abuse is much more prevalent than you might think. It is an unfortunate fact that tens of thousands of children are sexually abused in the U.S. each year. Many sexual predators who abuse children are never caught and do not face criminal prosecution. The civil sexual abuse attorneys at our law firm work hard to hold people who prey on children and the organizations and institutions that negligently provided them access to children to account for their wrongful actions.
Many sexual predators hold positions of authority over children. Children might be abused by the people they trust, including teachers, bus drivers, coaches, priests, or others. Our attorneys work with trained counselors to help us recognize the signs of abuse and understand the potential long-term consequences sexually abused children might face. We work to expose predators and organizations so that similar abuse will not occur in the future.
