 Recent Representations:

  • Car Accident- Settlement for a client who sustained serious foot injuries following a broadside collision between a Corvette and an SUV that failed to yield while turning left.

  • Operating Room Fire- Successful settlement of a case involving an operating room fire that occurred during minor surgery to remove a facial mole.  The surgeon and anesthesiologist failed to communicate about giving the patient oxygen and using an electric cautery tool in combination.  Claim for damages involving first and second degree facial burns.  Settled just before trial.

  • Motorcycle Crash- In a pick-up truck versus motorcycle accident, our client sustained multiple and serious leg and arm fractures. The claim against the driver recovered his policy limits and, likewise, we obtained policy limits from the client’s Underinsurance company. To obtain additional compensation for the client, we pursued a claim against the personal assets of the responsible driver, who ultimately settled and agreed to pay significant personal monies and to have that promise secured by a mortgage on his personal residence.

  • Car Versus Horse Collision- Successfully represented a driver injured after her car collided with horses that had escaped from a breeding farm due to the negligent design and maintenance of the farm’s fencing.  Recovered compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

  • Nail Gun Injury- A construction worker who was seriously injured when a nail gun misfired and shot a 3″ nail into his chest.  Legal claims were filed against the nail gun manufacturer alleging that the nail gun was defective and dangerous because it did not have a safety switch. Case settled prior to trial.

  • Fall on Stairway- Settlement for a client injured in a fall on the front steps of her rented home.  The landlord had been warned about an unsecured railing but failed to fix the defect which resulted in his tenant’s injuries.

  • Jury Verdict Four Times Insurance Offer- A broadside collision resulted in neck and back injuries to client.  Insurance company offered a low-ball settlement of $12,000.  Chester County jury trial resulted in $50,000 verdict.

    Tim and I recently worked together on a very complex personal injury case. He is an exceptional lawyer and came up with a unique strategy in our case that forced the other side into settlement and resulted in a great result for our client. I highly recommend him and would look forward to the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
