If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, it is vital that you get a skilled and experienced attorney who will effectively represent your best interests.

All cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, so clients pay nothing unless the firm successfully recovers their compensation.
Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
Our practice includes:
- Car Accidents
Our clients include drivers, passengers, family members and pedestrians — anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident. We handle car accident cases involving many different circumstances:
Drunk driving/dram shop litigation
Accident victims and their families may have more options than they think. Pennsylvania law allows injured drivers and passengers to hold bars accountable for over-serving patrons when those patrons cause drunk driving accidents. At Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald LLP, we handle these often challenging cases — helping our clients hold drunk drivers accountable in Pennsylvania civil courts. These dram shop liability cases usually require in-depth investigation, but we have the resources to complete investigations effectively. We find out exactly where the drunk driver was drinking before the accident, which bartender served him and which witnesses saw just how intoxicated he was before he caused the drunk driving accident.
When a driver causes a rear-end collision, the case is often very clear cut. It is usually the driver who slammed into the back of the other car who is determined to be responsible for the accident. At Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald LLP, we conduct a thorough review of all the facts and laws that may impact the outcome of a rear-end collision case. Our lawyers often review police reports and medical records. We may talk with witnesses and use photographs of the scene as evidence.
Many of the cases we handle involve careless and reckless driving. Careless and reckless driving happens when motor vehicle operators show a disregard for the safety of others or for the rules of the road. They speed, change lanes quickly and without signaling, or take other actions that have great potential to cause harm. If the other driver involved in your car accident has been convicted of careless or reckless driving, it does not necessarily mean that you will win your personal injury case. However, it can be a strong factor. Attorney Andrew D. Bigda served as a Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney before joining Rosenn, Jenkins & Greenwald LLP. He uses his knowledge of criminal law to help personal injury clients obtain results.
Distracted driving causes hundreds and even thousands of car accidents a year on roads in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. And these accident cause serious injuries, like amputations, spinal cord injuries and wrongful death. If you have been injured by a distracted driver, talking with the personal injury attorneys at Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald LLP can help you understand your options. Since 1954, our northeast Pennsylvania law firm has been dedicated to representing the victims of personal injury in state and federal courts.
Uninsured and underinsured motorists
Sadly, many drivers who cause car accidents do not have the insurance coverage necessary to compensate accident victims. If you have been injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you still have options. Our law firm explores all options for our clients. If they have been hit by a driver who does not have the necessary insurance coverage, we look to other sources of compensation. These may be your insurance coverage, auto manufacturers, parties responsible for dangerous road conditions or bars that over-served drunk drivers.
- Truck Accidents
When we handle a truck accident case, we take immediate action to spot violations. We look for a range of factors including Violations of log requirements, Misrepresentations in truck-driver logs, Inadequate training and supervision, Aggressive driving, Driving while tired/fatigued drivers, Vehicle maintenance problems, Overweight loads and other load issues, Weather-related accidents, and Drinking and drug abuse. We also understand that you may be worried about the cost of legal action. At Rosenn, Jenkins & Greenwald LLP, we know that truck accident victims have enough to worry about without trying to juggle the high costs of litigation. That's why we have a strict policy for personal injury cases: Our clients pay no fees or costs until we recover favorably for them. When matters have been resolved favorably, we take a percentage of a settlement or jury verdict.
- Motorcycle Accidents
Our Accident Victim Litigation Group handles many different types of motorcycle accident cases, each involving different legal issues and facts such as Injuries caused by motorcycle accidents, Single vehicle accidents, and Motorcycle passengers. Motorcycle accidents cause some of the most serious injuries on the road, and this is not just because of driver negligence. Motorcycles lack the basic protections — like seatbelts, airbags and structural designs — that keep car drivers and passengers safe. Pennsylvania has also stopped requiring motorcyclists to wear helmets, which help protect against brain injuries. If a serious injury has happened to you or a family member, our team of experienced personal injury attorneys is dedicated to helping clients achieve the best possible results in Pennsylvania courts.
- Premises Liability
Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers handles premises liability claims related to many different circumstances including Products falling off high shelves at stores, Slippery floors without adequate warnings, Slip and fall accidents, Ice and snow that has not been properly kept up, Swimming pool accidents, Dog attacks, and accidents at amusement parks or water parks. We also handle premises liability claims involving inadequate security at hotels, apartments and shopping centers. These cases happen when businesses fail to prevent crimes that occur on their premises, even though they knew they were likely to occur. We have the resources, knowledge and experience necessary to effectively handle these inadequate security cases.
- Product Liability/Dangerous and Defective Products
We handle product defect lawsuits related to many different types of products, including manufacturing equipment, pharmaceuticals, medical instruments and prosthetics, consumer goods, outdoor equipment such as garden tools, hedge trimmers and lawn mowers. Our attorneys also handle cases on behalf of the parents of children injured by dangerous baby products and toys. Our attorneys, paralegals and staff place great importance on being extremely responsive to client needs. Attorneys at our law firm work in teams as well as individually, enabling us to provide a comprehensive and coordinated response whenever a client's situation demands immediate action.

- Workers' Compensation
Hardworking men and women deserve to feel safe and secure on the job without worrying about what may happen if they are injured. In order to protect employees, the Pennsylvania government instituted workers' compensation laws that require companies to carry insurance policies that cover employees' wages and medical bills if they are injured at work.

We also represent workers injured in car accidents that happen on the job. Depending on your situation, the accident may be covered by workers' compensation or by another insurance policy held by your employer.
