Medical Malpractice

When patients receive medical care, they place their lives in the hands of doctors, nurses, technicians, and other healthcare providers. They hope that the treatment they receive is careful, proper, prompt, and successful. In the majority of cases, it is. But sometimes doctors and other healthcare providers fail to exercise the care that an ordinary doctor or healthcare provider should, with devastating results. Learn more

Metastatic Sarcoma/Cancer After Minimally Invasive Uterine Surgery - Morcellation

Unbeknownst to many women having a minimally invasive hysterectomy, their uterus may have been “morcellated,” meaning it was cut up into very small pieces and then removed through the small incision. This morcellation process uses a variety of commercially available “morcellators” specifically designed for hysterectomies. In some hysterectomy cases, the uterus is hiding a cancerous lesion. Substantial recent evidence has revealed that using a morcellator may spread cancer throughout the abdomen and body – resulting in metastatic sarcoma/cancer. Learn more

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

A nursing home is required by law to provide for the safety, protection and health of your loved one. Unfortunately, many nursing home residents suffer neglect and abuse. Many facilities are under-staffed, so the residents do not get the care required to remain healthy. In addition, staff is often under-trained and unqualified, and doesn’t always have sufficient supplies. Nursing homes are often dirty, smelly, and unpleasant, too. All of these issues can lead to neglect, abuse, and injuries. Learn more

Sex Abuse Cases

Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations, which defines a period of time during which a lawsuit or criminal case can legally be pursued, currently prevents most victims of child sexual abuse perpetrated within the Catholic Church from obtaining justice in either criminal or civil courts of law. For sexual abuse victims whose exploitation took place before 2002, the statute of limitations has expired. For a victim whose abuse occurred after 2002, the law provides the right to sue until they are 30 years old. Learn more

Product Liability

The law generally requires products to be safe for their intended use, but many things can and do go wrong between the time a product is designed or manufactured and the time it finds its way into a consumer's hands. Sometimes the way a product is designed is the problem. In other situations, products that were properly designed become dangerous because of faulty manufacturing. Products might also be unsafe because a manufacturer fails to provide proper instructions or warnings about hidden dangers. Learn more

Robotic Surgery - Intuitive Surgical da Vinci Robot Cases

Robotic surgery injury can be caused by a problem not related to physician error; many complications and injuries can be caused by a defect in the robot’s design. Robotic da Vinci surgery is most commonly used in hysterectomies and prostate operations, but it is also used in a wide variety of other procedures, including gastric bypass, bladder, and thyroid surgery. The most common types of Robotic da Vinci surgical injury are bleeding, bowel injury/perforation, and bladder injury. Learn more

Vaping - e-cigarettes and Juul

Vaping, or smoking e-cigarettes, is a rising trend that’s especially popular among adolescents and young adults today. In fact, e-cigarettes have surpassed all other forms of tobacco to become the most commonly used tobacco product by youth in the U.S. However, recent studies have identified serious and potentially life-threatening risks among Juul and other e-cigarette products users. They include irreversible lung damage, nicotine addiction, and injuries from malfunctioning vaping devices. Learn more

Premises Liability

Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe. When they don't, catastrophic injuries can occur. Icy stairs, inadequate security, wobbly railings, unattended swimming pools, malfunctioning escalators, and improper lighting are just a few examples of the hazards that lurk on negligently maintained properties. These hazards often cause accidents that bring about unimaginable pain and suffering. Unsafe premises have been responsible for broken bones, spinal cord injuries, severed limbs, head injuries, and even death. Learn more

Auto/Trucking

Careless and reckless driving, vehicle defects, poorly designed roadways, and malfunctioning traffic controls all cause devastating accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car crashes claimed the lives of more than 36,000 people in 2018. In addition to these tragic deaths, car and truck accidents cause millions of serious injuries each year. After the trauma of an auto accident, victims and their loved ones face a complicated legal terrain and are often met with resistance when seeking full compensation from insurance companies.

Construction/Work Injuries

Companies generally have a duty to maintain a safe and healthy workplace for their employees, contractors, and sub-contractors. Yet, each day, catastrophic accidents occur in the workplace when companies fail to do that. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 5,200 workers die each year in workplace accidents. Many more workers are seriously injured each year in non-fatal workplace accidents.
