Medical Malpractice

Due to tort reform instigated by lobbyists representing the insurance industry and the medical profession, a preliminary finding of negligence on the part of a doctor is required before a medical malpractice suit can proceed forward. The law office of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman assembles a team of experienced medical experts and investigators in evaluating the evidence involved in our clients' cases. We prepare documents and expert witness statements in establishing the existence of negligence in connection with our client's injuries in order to proceed to trial. Our lawyers also consult economists and life care planners in determining the financial impact of medical malpractice for our client and their family.

Elder Care Abuse

We often find that elder care abuse is a result of negligent hiring. Nursing homes and home health care agencies may fail to do adequate background checks on employees hired to care for the elderly. Nursing assistants with long histories of criminal activity or drug abuse are sometimes allowed into the elder care system. This can lead to instances of negligent nursing home care. We handle cases involving:

• Falls in nursing homes
• Elder physical or sexual abuse
• Malnutrition or dehydration
• Bedsores
• Medication errors
• Improper use of restraints
• Broken bones
• Wandering or elopement
• Wrongful death

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is often the result of gross negligence or reckless indifference on the part of auto drivers, manufacturers, employers, and healthcare providers. The Philadelphia law office of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman represents survivors of those killed through the gross negligence of others. Since many wrongful death cases involve the loss of a wage earner, a parent, a spouse, a brother or sister, our attorneys quantify your loss by working with experienced economists who consider loss of consortium, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. In cases where those responsible deny culpability, our lawyers hire experts from every relevant field to analyze and investigate the causes of a fatal accident. Our office acts immediately to preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and determine what happened and why.

Criminal Defense

Our criminal law attorneys provide aggressive representation and personal service to people who have been charged with a wide range of crimes, including:

• Theft : We represent clients in all types of theft crimes, from shoplifting to complex financial crimes.
• Burglary/robbery : Do not face these felony charges without the representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney.
• Traffic offenses : Paying a speeding ticket or other traffic ticket is admitting guilt. Too many traffic tickets can result in steep fines and increased insurance rates. Do not take that risk.
