Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be very difficult. Whether the placement of parents or loved ones is due to a short-term illness or declining ability to care for themselves, you have the right to expect that they will receive proper care. An owner has a duty to inspect and maintain their property or business, in order to avoid injuring their visitors or customers. The owner is also responsible to supervise and secure the property in order to protect those who lease or are invited onto the property. If you are a tenant, visitor or customer injured from a fall, falsely arrested, or assaulted by an employee or a stranger, call us. We will be glad to review the facts with you.
The squeal of tires and loud sounds of crunching metal are harbingers of serious injuries, and possibly death. As the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the fifth-most-populous city in the U.S., Philadelphia has an overabundance of auto, bus, truck and motorcycle accidents each year. Chances are that you or a loved one will suffer a personal injury at some point in your life. When you are injured we are here to help.
Industrial – Workplace Injuries
Unfortunately, there are a vast number of employees who are injured on the job every single day. In Pennsylvania, if you are injured as a result of your employer’s negligence or the negligence of a fellow employee, you are only entitled to receive medical benefits and a percentage of your wage loss. However, if an injury was caused by a defect in machinery or the negligence of someone other than your employer or a fellow employee, then not only are you entitled to workers compensation benefits—but you can also bring a claim against that person or company for your personal injuries. If you are involved in a workplace injury, call us immediately so that we can protect your rights both as an employee and as a plaintiff in a potential claim for personal injuries.

Contract – Residential Litigation
When people enter into an agreement, such as renting an apartment or buying a home, they often are required to sign a written contract. This contract controls the rights and obligations of all of the parties who signed the agreement. That is why it is important to have the contract reviewed by an attorney before it is signed. This is the only way to protect your interests.
