Areas of Law Description

- Personal Injury

No matter what causes a personal injury or Wrongful Death, you will need an experienced, aggressive lawyer to represent your interests. Most personal injury cases are ultimately a battle to get the negligent party's insurance company to adequately compensate the injury victim. Without an attorney to protect your rights, it is very unlikely that you will receive the compensation you deserve.

- Medical Malpractice

James E. Colleran, Esquire began practicing medical malpractice law early in his career. He started his career at a well-known plaintiff's law firm in Philadelphia and quickly earned a record of success and an impeccable reputation throughout the legal community. In 1995, he founded The Colleran Firm. He and the other members of his firm, including all four of his children, have had continued success and have remained at the top of their field.

- Vehicle Accident

At The Colleran Firm, we represent many types of injury victims, including people who have been hurt in auto accidents. We use the skills we have developed while litigating medical malpractice cases to pursue compensation in vehicle accident cases. Our knowledge of complex medical issues is extremely valuable in all personal injury claims.

- Premises Liability

Property owners, both commercial and private, must exercise reasonable caution in keeping their property in a safe condition. The failure to do so may constitute negligence and entitle injured parties to monetary compensation for any related injuries or death. Premises liability matters can include relatively simple things such as dog bites and slip and falls or more complex matters such as work-related injuries or construction accidents.

- Wrongful Death

An unexpected death forces family members to confront many issues simultaneously. With a compassionate, experienced personal injury lawyer on your side, however, you can begin to work through these issues. At The Colleran Firm, we have helped numerous families address the financial and legal concerns of Wrongful Death. We understand that you have suffered a great loss, and money cannot undo that damage. However, we also know that obtaining adequate compensation to pay your bills can ease some of your worries.
