We Do More Than Win
✓ No upfront costs - we front all of the legal fees and get paid on performance. In fact, we don't get paid unless you win.
✓ We are local and we KNOW Pennsylvania's system - Just because a firm gets a license to practice law here and buy up a bunch of bill boards around town doesn't mean that they have real experience fighting cases in PA's legal system every day. We are a Bala Cynwyd based firm with attorneys that focus on Pennsylvania injury cases. We eat, drink and breath this every day.
✓ We are not intimidated by litigation - We do not allow insurance carriers to strong arm, intimidate or stagnate claims. We will not hesitate to take them to court to fight for you when needed.
✓ No shortcuts - we go the extra mile to make sure that you get the highest compensation possible rather than settling right away as many injury firms do.
✓ We focus on you, not on getting the most cases in town like the guys on the billboards.
✓ Proprietary methods of case management for your very best client experience and ensure greater odds of success compared to high volume, low-touch firms.
✓ Talk directly to your attorney instead of getting passed off on case managers (if you've ever been through a car accident case, you'll know how valuable this is).
✓ We're consistently rated 5 stars by clients and have over 450 5-star reviews for a reason.
✓ No cost consultations - we'll help you find out if you have a case. If you don't, we'll help point you in the right direction. Win-win.
✓ We get results without compromising service - It's not easy to find a firm that provides our brand of one-on-one service but which has the resources to get results that smaller practices may not be able to.
When a child sustains a severe injury, it can be challenging for the minor and their family to cope with the resulting trauma physically, emotionally, and financially. In cases where a child’s injury results from another’s negligence, the family may have grounds to file a civil claim for legal restitution.
If your child was injured in an accident resulting from someone else’s negligence, you could bring a claim on their behalf to recover damages with the help of an experienced injury attorney. By speaking with a Bala Cynwyd child injury lawyer, you could learn how to pursue your child’s claim effectively.
Due to their age, some injuries they could sustain can arise from circumstances unique to children. However, minors can also suffer harm in the same accidents adults face. Some of the more common child injury accidents include, but are not limited to:
Regardless of the exact type of accident that results in a child suffering harm, if the cause was another person’s negligence, the family of the injured child could file a civil claim for damages. An experienced local lawyer could help the parents of an injured child seek compensation from any party potentially at fault for their child’s injuries and the resulting damages.
In a majority of personal injury cases involving children, the legal claim that the injured child brings is typically based on a theory of negligence. In other words, the child’s injuries were the result of another’s wrongful conduct or failure to act accordingly.
To succeed in the bringing of a negligence cause of action, the plaintiff will need to prove the following elements:
However, defendants owe a higher duty of care to children. Therefore, there are some legal nuances regarding a defendant’s obligations to a child plaintiff.
In Pennsylvania, if a child sustains an injury while on the property of another due to their attraction to an existing hazard on the property, the property owner may be held liable for damages under the legal doctrine of attractive nuisance. For the injured minor to effectively bring an attractive nuisance claim against the property owner, they must show the property owner was or should have been aware of the property’s hazardous condition and that the dangerous condition was likely to injure children due to their inexperience and maturity. Attractive nuisances protect a child even if the minor was trespassing at the time of their injury.
When a child suffers from a negligently inflicted injury, it can have a lasting effect on them and their family. The mental and physical trauma such an injury can cause may result in costly medical procedures and extensive treatment.
If your child has recently been harmed due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you could pursue their injury claim on their behalf. Call our experienced Bala Cynwyd child injury lawyers now to discuss your potential options.
