Motor vehicle accidents happen in a variety of ways in Pennsylvania. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling the following:
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, there are nearly 130,000 total vehicle crashes each year across the Commonwealth.
Residents in and around Philadelphia regularly use buses. While these vehicles are generally safe, there are times when serious injuries occur to bus passengers as well as those in other vehicles involved in an accident with a bus. There are various types of buses around Philadelphia, including long-distance transportation buses, SEPTA transit buses, school buses, and more. Due to the size and weight of these vehicles, as well as the fact that most passengers are not restrained, anybody involved in a crash with a bus could sustain severe injuries.
According to researchers from Johns Hopkins University, medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the US, causing approximately 250,000 total fatalities each year. However, millions more are injured due to medical mistakes and are left dealing with the consequences. Some of the most common medical mistakes we help clients with include surgical mistakes, medication errors, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, healthcare-acquired infections, birth injuries and more.
Slip and fall incidents are the leading cause of premises liability cases. These incidents are preventable, but property owners and their employees often fail to keep patrons safe. Aside from slip and fall incidents, there are other ways in which the negligence of property owners can cause injuries. When property owners fail to properly inspect and maintain their premises, those who have a right to be there could sustain severe injuries.
Faulty products harm thousands of consumers each year. When a company or manufacturer releases a defective product to the public, they should be held accountable for their negligence. Products become defective in many ways, including design flaws, errors during the manufacturing process, and errors with the product label.
Regardless of where a person works, there is a risk of injury. It is up to employers to provide a safe work environment for their employees. Construction workers operate in hazardous conditions on a regular basis. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the construction industry accounted for approximately 20% of all workplace fatalities during the latest reporting year.
