A Philadelphia Sensory Loss Lawyer Discusses Loss of the Five Senses – Part 1

The five senses are traditionally thought of as sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. The loss of even part of one of our senses can be devastating. How much moreso when the loss is total and/or to multiple senses. Perhaps the sense of taste is the one that most people would choose, if they had to lose one. But think how life would be so much less full without the ability to truly enjoy a…

Vision Loss Claims and Expert Fees

Did you know it is common for ophthalmologists to charge literally thousands of dollars for their testimony? Many demand large non-refundable retainers. I handled a case in which the ophthalmologist’s written policy calls for a charge of $3,000 for a one-hour deposition. For each additional hour or part thereof, the fee is $2,000. If the deposition takes one hour and one minute, the doctor…

A Delaware County Vision Loss Lawyer Discusses Expert Testimony

At the trial of a case involving vision loss, you must present medical evidence of that loss. Your doctors will testify about the vision injuries, treatment, and diagnosis, the causal relationship between the accident and the eye injuries, the amount of pain the injuries caused, and the prognosis for the future. If surgery was performed, it will be addressed in great detail. Perhaps plastic…

A Main Line Personal Injury Attorney Discusses Dram Shop Claims Information

Do you think that businesses that serve alcohol should be liable if one of their customers injures someone while driving drunk? Dram shop laws establish the liability of liquor stores, taverns, restaurants, and other businesses that serve alcoholic beverages. A “dram” is a small amount of liquid. Generally, if a business serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, that business is liab…

Post-traumatic stress disorder (also called post-traumatic stress syndrome) is a provable phenomenon that adds value to some cases. This disorder may involve headaches, nausea, dizziness, inability to concentrate, depression, irrational fears, etc. However, this is an area that is fraught with danger for claimants.

You Can’t Win Them All…Or Can You? A Slippery Slip and Fall Case

I had a very strange experience in court this week that capped off a bizarre sequence of events.  The judge ruled against my client, but ultimately I was almost glad she did.  I had to endure an insurance defense lawyer’s cackling laughter after the judge issued her ruling.  But at least I was spared being called a liar in front of a court room full of lawyers!

This story begins in…

Discussion on Serious Injuries and Surgery

Serious Injury Damages

Ruptured discs, bone fractures, and injuries resulting in scarring are generally compensated more generously than are soft tissue injuries. Insurance companies more often than not suspect that soft tissue injuries are imagined or exaggerated. Herniated discs, fractures, and scarring in and of themselves prove injury. These types of injuries are common after a car or…
