A Children’s Injury Lawyer Talks About Injuries To Children

Children are entitled to presumption of non-negligence in injury cases.  A 12-year-old has a much weaker presumption of non-negligence than does a 6-year-old. Thus, if a 6-year-old is struck by a car, this child will almost certainly receive compensation for injuries suffered in the accident. Yet, even the 12-year-old is not held to the same standard of care as the adult driver. That is on…

A Dram Shop Lawyer Discusses His Huge Settlement

A hush falls over the courtroom as the court offers brings the jury into the high ceiling, ornately decorated City Hall venue. The parties and lawyers all rise for the jury. Two of those lawyers whisper. Suddenly, the defense blinks and settles the case for $1,075,001.00, plus a payment of $1,000.00 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving!

For the rest of this story, see my…

No One Free Bite Says the Pit Bull Lawyer

I handled a very sad Pit Bull attack case last year in which a woman was attacked in her back yard by the next door neighbor’s dog. She was minding her own business. Her wounds were horrific.  She became addicted to pain killers and the last years of her life were filled with suffering.

Here’s a sad story about another Pit Bull Attack.  It involves a California woman who was killed by…

Finding the Best Injury Lawyer for Philadelphia Building Collapse

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced Monday that a grand jury will investigate the fatal building collapse in Philadelphia.  This investigation will seek to determine whether anyone besides a crane operator, Sean Benschop will face criminal charges.  Authorities charged Benschop with six counts of involuntary manslaughter, 13 counts of recklessly endangering another person,…

The Initial Consultation with the Best Philly Injury Lawyer

Many of your questions about the process can be answered during the initial consultation. However, not all questions can be answered at that time with any degree of certainty. For example, there is no way for the lawyer to know at the initial meeting what the case is worth, how long before it will settle, or whether you will have to go to court. More questions will arise in your mind in the weeks…

Initial Consultation with a Top Philadelphia Injury Lawyer

THE INITIAL CONSULTATION

The initial consultation is similar to meeting for the first time with a doctor. The doctor takes your medical history; the lawyer reviews your legal history. The two-way communication between lawyer and client is the crucial first step in achieving a successful outcome.

Before the appointment, try to write down the details of the accident. Your notes and…

Getting Referred to a Top Philadelphia Injury Lawyer

Even if he or she cannot represent you, the first lawyer you call may be able to refer you to someone who can. A referring attorney is ethically bound to refer you to someone who will zealously pursue your case. In addition, lawyers generally receive referral fees when they send clients to one another. A referred attorney may want to work less on your case if part of the settlement goes to t…

Philadelphia Building Collapse – Finding the Best Philadelphia Injury Attorney

            And the first lawsuit has been filed in the Philadelphia building collapse.  That lawsuit on behalf of Nadine White refers to the cause of the collapse as “an entirely preventable tragedy that resulted from gross recklessness.” Ms. White was buried in rubble but survived.

            City officials have begun inspecting demolition sites around the city.

Philadelphia Injury Lawyer Discusses the Philadelphia Building Collapse

It is a tragedy that brings to mind the collapse of Philadelphia’s Pier 34 in 2000 and the collapse of a parking garage in the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City three years later.

Six fatalities and 14 injuries are now confirmed.  A 61 year old woman, Myra Plekam, was pulled alive out of the rubble 13 hours after the collapse.  “That’s why we stay the course,” Ayers said. “This person…
