Personal Injury

If you have been injured as a result of another party's negligent, careless, or reckless actions, you can file a personal injury claim against the liable party for compensation. Common causes of personal injury include auto accidents, workplace accidents, use of defective products, and accidents that occur on an unsafe property. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury and the defendant's actions, it may be possible to obtain compensation for medical costs, rehabilitation costs, loss of wages (stemming from a work absence or inhibited earning capacity), and non-economic pain and suffering. You may also be able to file a claim for punitive damages if the defendant acted egregiously. Personal injury cases require an exhaustive understanding of the law and an unwavering dedication to securing a successful case resolution, as the defendant will vigorously defend his or her interests.

Medical Malpractice

Medical practitioners have a legal and ethical obligation to perform their duties to an accepted professional standard of care. In the medical field, the standard of care is defined as the degree of caution that an educated and reasonable healthcare provider would undertake in the course of his or her duties. If a doctor or nurse causes a patient injury or illness because he or she failed to abide by the standard of care, a medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed. It is important to note, however, that medical science is not exact, and there are inherent risks that can result in injury or even death. To file a claim, it must be shown that your injuries came as a result of a healthcare provider’s negligence.

Workers' Compensation

The purpose of workers' compensation is to provide individuals who have been injured or disabled on the job with fixed and regular monetary compensation, as well as payment for reasonable and necessary medical expenses. In the unfortunate event of an individual's death, workers' compensation can be paid to the spouse or dependents of the deceased. If you have been injured on the job and your requests for workers' compensation have been denied, we can help. We handle state workers’ compensation claims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as federal claims.  Our attorneys can review the circumstances of your case and will work diligently to protect your legal rights.

Social Security Disability

If you have a physical, psychological, or emotional disability that makes it impossible for you to work, then you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Whether you have been denied disability benefits in the past or you are seeking benefits for a recent injury or disease, it is important to know your rights and work with an experienced attorney who can help you effectively navigate the Social Security system.

Real Estate Litigation and Transactions

Real estate transactions can be very complex, and it is likely in your best interest to utilize the services of an attorney if you are looking to purchase or sell real estate, whether it is a commercial or private transaction. We can help draft or review a contract, commercial lease, or closing documents, resolve contract disputes, as well as attend your real estate settlement. Real estate is typically a significant investment, one that should be handled with care and consideration. We can provide the information and knowledge you need to assert your legal rights and protect your interests.
