Wrongful DeathWrongful Death

Losing a loved one is never easy, but grieving can be even more difficult when your loved one’s death was caused by another party’s negligence. At Heslin Law Firm, we can help you hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions. A wrongful death claim is a type of civil action seeking compensation for losses related to your family member’s death. This case is in addition to any criminal charges related to the incident.

In most cases, you have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a wrongful death suit. However, acting quickly is in your best interest. As time passes, valuable evidence to establish liability can become more difficult to locate. To get started, contact our Philadelphia office to schedule a free, no-obligation initial consultation.

A serious car accident can leave you with injuries requiring extensive medical treatment, as well as a substantial loss of income during your recovery period. Why should you be expected to bear the burden of someone else’s negligence? Heslin Law Firm can help you protect your right to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

It’s understandable to be worried about how you’ll afford a accident attorney if you’re currently unable to work, but we accept car accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means there is no cost for legal representation until a settlement is reached. We’ll accept a percentage of your settlement as our fee, which means we have a strong incentive to maximize your compensation.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, and other serious injuries can change a person’s life forever.

When your injuries are due to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation under Pennsylvania’s personal injury statute.

Heslin Law Firm is committed to helping serious injury victims protect their right to the compensation they deserve for the harm they’ve suffered. We’ll establish liability, document your damages, and negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurer for the highest possible recovery.

SEPTASEPTA

Mass transit is cheap and convenient, but serious accidents can occur when bus drivers are inexperienced or careless. SEPTA accidents can lead to life-altering injuries for passengers, as well as pedestrians, cyclists, and occupants of other vehicles on the road.

SEPTA is considered a “common carrier” under the law. This means drivers are required to be held at a higher standard of care when dealing with the safety of their passengers. If you’ve been injured in a SEPTA accident, Heslin Law Firm can protect your right to a fair recovery for the damages you’ve suffered. Let us advocate for your interests, so you can focus on healing from your injuries and moving forward with your life.

Slip and FallSlip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents, dog bite attacks, and drownings are just a few examples of the ways a property owner’s negligence can cause great harm to others. If you were injured while visiting a private property or a commercial business, you are entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Heslin Law Firm, we believe you shouldn’t have to bear the financial burden of another party’s negligence. Contact our office today to discuss your case and how we can protect your right to a fair recovery under Pennsylvania’s premises liability law.

Workers' CompensationWorkers' Compensation

Work-related accidents can cause employees a great deal of stress. When you’re already struggling to make ends meet, as many Americans are, being out of work due to an injury can create an extreme financial burden.

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides nearly all part-time, full-time, seasonal, and temporary workers with access to medical care and wage replacement benefits after suffering an on-the-job injury. However, insurers are often reluctant to pay what is rightfully owed. If you’re struggling to access your benefits, Heslin Law Firm can advocate for your rights and ensure that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you need to provide for yourself and your family.
