We Hold Property Owners Accountable for Your Injury
Our location makes it easy for us to reach our clients in the greater Philadelphia area and southern New Jersey. We have handled numerous personal injury cases and know what it takes to win your case. We strive to make your voice heard in court to help those in the courtroom understand how your injury has affected you physically, emotionally, and financially. Our first priority is helping our clients seek the proper medical treatment for a successful recovery. We then create a strategy to collect the critical evidence needed to prove who is at fault for the accident and get a large cash award for your claim.
Some believe personal injury and workers’ compensation are the same. This is not true. With a personal injury claim, a person is injured due to someone else’s negligence. With Workers’ Compensation, the accident occurred at work. The worker cannot sue their employer for compensation. The victim can sue another person, company or organization.
Proving Negligence in a Claim
The plaintiff must prove there was negligence to be compensated. This comes down to four questions:
- Did the defendant owe you a “duty of care”? This means the defendant had a legal duty to protect you. For example, a landlord has the legal duty to ensure your apartment or home is up to code.
- How did the defendant breach this duty? Using the example above, the landlord did nothing in response to your requests to fix the electrical wiring, which started a fire, causing you to receive a third-degree burn.
- Can you show that the defendant’s negligence caused the accident or injury? It is highly recommended to take pictures of the accident or injury as soon as possible. Also, our team of lawyers will bring in experts to testify on your behalf.
- Can the court compensate you for your injury? The court has the power to deny or award damages. We will definitively prove that the defendant is at fault, forcing the court to rule in your favor.
The attorneys at Saffren & Weinberg will provide detailed answers to these questions and more to win your case.
When you are partly at fault for the accident or injury, you have contributed to the negligence. However, you may still receive compensation from the other party (or parties). Your amount of responsibility in the accident or injury is compared against the other party’s negligence. If it is determined that your responsibility is less than the other party’s, then you can receive compensation. Also, if you have a physical limitation (e.g., a bad back) that likely caused the accident, you may still receive compensation.
