Areas of Law Description
Our practice includes:
- Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice isn't limited to hospitals, however. Negligence can occur anywhere treatment is rendered, from a doctor's office to an out-patient clinic to a nursing home. Medical malpractice can result from any number of causes, including improper use of a medical device, surgical error, hospital-based infections, and misdiagnosis or failure to treat in a timely manner. A comprehensive 2011 study by The New England Journal of Medicine found that three out of four US doctors will be sued for medical malpractice at some point in their careers with thoracic surgeons, neurosurgeons and cardiovascular surgeons topping the list of the most likely to be sued.
- Wrongful Death
Circumstances resulting in wrongful death are numerous and range from car accidents, medical malpractice, and work-related injuries to hazardous premises conditions and defective products. Wrongful death lawsuits are filed by the surviving family, which is the immediate family, such as a spouse, children, parents or siblings. Not only does winning a wrongful death case bring relief and justice to the surviving family, it also provides a means to pay for hospital, nursing, and doctor care expenses as well as funeral and estate administration costs. Philadelphia wrongful death attorneys at Ross Feller Casey have extensive experience in litigating wrongful death cases.
- Product Liability
Unsafe products result in injuries and death for hundreds of thousands of people every year. Manufacturers bear the responsibility to produce safe products, and when they fail to do so, they may become the subject of product liability lawsuits. When investigation reveals that products are defective and caused injury, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit. The three main areas of product liability litigation center on engineering flaws, manufacturing defects and failures to warn consumers about the dangers of a product. If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of defective or faulty product, one of our attorneys can assist you in determining if you have a case.
- Premises Liability
Property owners are responsible for maintaining premises that are safe. When they don't and injuries occur as a result of hazardous conditions, lack of security or neglected maintenance, they may be held liable. Ross Feller Casey attorneys have built a remarkable record of victories as Philadelphia premises liability lawyers, winning seven- and eight-figure recoveries including the largest verdict of its kind in Pennsylvania history. If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of hazardous conditions, lack of security, or neglected maintenance on a premise, one of our premises liability attorneys can assist you in determining if you have a case.
- Workplace Injuries
Employers have a responsibility to ensure not only a safe workplace, but also that equipment meets government-set safety standards. While slip and fall accidents are the most common cause of injury in a work setting, other unsafe conditions such as loose or faulty scaffolding, or improper operation of cranes, winches, bulldozers, forklifts and other equipment can result in severe injuries. The Philadelphia work injury attorneys at Ross Feller Casey are among the nation's leading experts in workplace injury lawsuits, building a remarkable record of seven- and eight-figure recoveries for their clients.
- Spinal Cord Injuries
The emotional cost of a spinal injury can be devastating. So can the financial cost. The average first year cost for all spinal cord injuries tops $200,000. That figure more than doubles to about a half million dollars for quadriplegia, national studies show. That makes choosing the right spinal cord injury law firm so critical. Philadelphia spinal cord injury attorneys, Ross Feller Casey, LLP have successfully litigated all types of spinal cord injury lawsuits, winning seven-and eight-figure recoveries, some of the largest of their kind in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the nation.
- Brain Injuries
Falls are the leading cause of TBIs, accounting for nearly 36 percent of them, followed by motor vehicle accidents, 18 percent. A common misconception is that there must be a blow to the head to cause TBI. The mere thrust of the brain crushing against the skull often results in enough force to bruise, tear or cause bleeding that builds up pressure and results in traumatic brain injury. A high impact involving jerking or shaking, such as on an amusement ride or in a car accident has in some instances caused traumatic brain injury. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, one of our attorneys can assist you in determining if you have a case.
- Failure to Diagnose Cancer
When left undiagnosed, cancer may spread throughout the entire body, greatly lessening the patient's chance for survival. In the worst cases, failure to diagnose cancer results in death. Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnosis cancer sometimes occurs because the doctor does not assign enough importance to the patient's complaints or delays in referring the patient to specialists. Doctors may fail to do testing, including MRIs, PSA tests for prostate and mammograms. The radiologist may misread the test results, or the laboratory technician may err in evaluating the biopsy. An attorney with confirmed experience and expertise in litigating cancer cases can assist in determining whether you or a loved one has been the victim of misdiagnosis or the failure to diagnose cancer.
- Birth Injuries
Medical errors occur during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and after a child is born. In the US each year, a birth injury occurs in nearly seven out of every 1,000 births, often leaving the child with a lifetime disability. Ross Feller Casey has developed an extensive network of medical experts and even has a doctor who is also a lawyer right on staff to help legally diagnose and care for birth injury lawsuits from their inception. The firm handles cases on a contingency basis, so there will never be a cost to you unless there is a financial recovery in your case. If you or a loved one has suffered a birth injury, one of our Philadelphia birth injury attorneys can assist you in determining if you have a case.
- Toxic Torts
Toxic substances are found everywhere - in the water, air, ground, and in the walls of people's homes. Chemical plants, refineries, factories, railroad yards, electrical towers, transformers, landfills, mines, shipyards, hospitals, and lakes and streams have all become sources for toxicity. Homes that are insulated with asbestos, painted with lead-based paint, or walls that are growing mold from water damage can be a source of toxins that over the years result in permanent and irreversible heath conditions. The fact that the adverse effects of toxic exposure may not be evident for many years makes toxic tort cases a challenge to prove. While proving that toxins have resulted in illness may be difficult, the burden of proof in a toxic tort lawsuit is much less than in a criminal case.
A large number of amputations occur as a result of traumatic accidents. However, diseases such as cardiovascular disease outnumber trauma as the primary cause. Diabetes, cancer, infections and tumors also result in numerous amputations. Amputations are defined as severing of a body part, and the most prevalent loss of limbs is fingers. When an arm or leg amputation occurs there may be extreme blood loss, shock, infection and even death. At Ross Feller Casey, our attorneys have shown that hiring a top-notch amputation lawyer is crucial to recovering compensation for amputees.
- Automobile Litigation
More car accident claims are filed than claims for any other type of personal injury. Many car accidents occur as a result of reckless or negligent driving. Nearly half of all serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury take place during motor vehicle accidents. Hiring an attorney at the onset of a car accident can prove invaluable. Ross Feller Casey knows the intricacies of traffic laws, can determine where the liability rests in a car accident, and has teams of available experts, such as physicians, accident reconstructionists, and road safety professionals to testify on behalf of our clients.
- Child Sex Abuse
Ross Feller Casey, LLP represents multiple victims in the Jerry Sandusky / Penn State Child Sexual Abuse case, including three who testified at trial -- those identified as Victim 3, Victim 7 and Victim 10. Founding Partners Joel Feller and Matthew Casey, along with State College-area attorneys Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici, are representing the victims. Ross Feller Casey continues conducting an investigation and plans to file civil actions on behalf of its numerous clients.
