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 Norristown 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.
As a patient, you expect the doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other healthcare professional to provide you with compassionate, correct services that benefit your wellness. If this does not happen, speak with a Norristown medical malpractice lawyer. You could be eligible for damages to compensate you for the pain and trauma you have experienced because of a physician’s negligence.
Holding a healthcare professional accountable for their negligence can be difficult without legal guidance. A well-practiced local attorney could be an essential ally when pursuing this type of civil claim.
Seasoned lawyers in Norristown take on a variety of medical negligence cases to help injured patients recover financial compensation for their harm. Attorneys could also represent surviving family members if the malpractice resulted in the affected individual’s wrongful death. Common types of medical negligence includes:
Medical errors can occur due to a variety of factors, such as intoxication, fatigue, and distraction. In any case, negligence by a healthcare professional can result in catastrophic harm to a patient and could be grounds for civil recourse.
In order for a local attorney to establish medical malpractice on the plaintiff’s behalf, they must obtain a certificate of merit according to 231 Pennsylvania Code Rule §1042.3. The certificate of merit refers to a statement made by an “appropriate licensed professional” who has reviewed the plaintiff’s case and believes there is reasonable cause to take action against the offending doctor, surgeon, or other healthcare professional. The defendant’s actions must fall outside acceptable professional standards, and the person providing the statement can testify in court on the plaintiff’s behalf.
For the certificate to be accepted in court, it must be filed within 60 days of the plaintiff’s filing, or with the initial complaint. This means it is essential for potential claimants to contact an attorney in the area as soon as possible to ensure they meet this strict deadline.
Some states place caps on economic and non-economic medical malpractice damages such as pain and suffering, physical and occupational therapy, and emotional anguish. Pennsylvania is not among these states, as it does not limit the amount of damages claimants can recover. An injured patient in Norristown is subsequently allowed to recover all damages related to their medical negligence case with their attorney’s help, and hopefully move forward with their lives. However, the state does cap punitive damages, or those meant to punish the offending party or parties for gross negligence or intentional actions.
If your healthcare provider acted negligently, resulting in injuries that could have been easily avoided, reach out to a Norristown medical malpractice lawyer. Our law firm features attorneys with experience in cases like yours who could help you seek the legal recourse you are owed.
