Personal Injury: Areas of Practice
Our firm represents clients in virtually every type of accident situation. The most common types of accidents we deal with are motor vehicle-related accidents. These are not limited to car accidents; they can also involve motorcycle accidents, accidents with big rigs, pedestrian accidents, and bicycle accidents, any of which can cause serious and catastrophic injuries for the accident victims. We also handle all types of premises liability cases, whether they occurred on public or private property. These include dog bites and animal attacks, playground accidents, and slip and fall accidents, to name a few.
Medical malpractice involves cases where a doctor, nurse, dentist, anesthesiologist, or another medical professional fails to uphold a standard duty of care. When that failure leads to patient injury or wrongful death, it is considered medical malpractice. Our firm represents individuals who have been injured by the wrongful acts of a medical professional, some of which may include a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, poor post-operative care, a surgical or anesthesia error, or another medical error that leads to birth injuries. We can also help if your elderly loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect; for example, if they are being malnourished, verbally abused, or overly-sedated, if their caregivers are stealing their personal items, or if money is missing from their bank accounts.
If you were injured by a dangerous or defective drug, such as Actos or Yaz, if you were injured by a dangerous product, or if your child was harmed by a dangerous toy or crib, we urge you to contact a Chester personal injury attorney from our firm. In many cases, dangerous drugs are monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and dangerous products are monitored by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. These government agencies act as watchdog committees that protect the consumer from dangerous and defective products.
If you were harmed by a dangerous drug or another product, it is possible that one or more safety warnings or recalls may have been issued by one of these agencies. Manufacturers have a duty to release safe products on the market and if you have been injured by a defective product, you may have grounds to file a claim for compensation.
