Drunk Driving Accidents

America has cracked down on those who drive under the influence. Statistically someone is injured or killed in a crash involving alcohol approximately every 20 minutes.

Despite the severe consequences, many drivers continue to get behind the wheel impaired, endangering the lives of others and running an extremely high risk of being involved in car accidents.

Slip and Fall Accidents

*Firm Specialty

Slip, trip, and fall accidents are the most common type of claim against every major retailer doing business today. Their claim departments have specialized their defense tactics to a well-planned attack on you, the injured victim. We call it the blame and shame game. They blame you for their unsafe choices and try to shame you into a low settlement.

Our trial strategy exploits this in a way that exposes them as the culpable party responsible for your suffering. Juries respond appropriately to a corporate neighbor who places their own interests over those of the community. Corporations have rights but they also have responsibilities and we show that their unsafe choices combined with their blame and shame defense makes them now an unwanted member of the neighborhood. Call us, John J. Branigan Law Offices, if you have suffered a slip and fall for your free consultation. 215-592-9010.

A train accident can be a devastating incident resulting in serious injury or even death to the victims involved. Whether it is a derailment, a train-vehicle collision, a railroad crossing accident, an accident involving hazardous materials or any other type of railroad accident, many people may be harmed. Where negligence on the part of railroad employees, the train company or a governmental agency, or equipment manufacturers has been the cause of such an accident, they may be held liable for damages connected with resulting injuries or deaths.

A personal injury or wrongful death case stemming from a train accident can be a complicated matter in determining the cause of the accident, who is legally responsible, and in operating under specific laws and statutes of limitations. Investigating and gathering all of the evidence pertaining to the accident is a crucial part of the process as well as documenting the nature and the extent of the injuries and making financial projections of how such injuries will affect the victim or his family in the future.
