The attorneys of Robert Peirce & Associates recently won an important court ruling on behalf of their client Sunrise Energy that may help shift Pennsylvania's energy supply to more sustainable sources.
Those in Pennsylvania who must decide whether to place their loved one in a nursing home often agonize over the decision. Once made, they still have to worry about whether their loved one's needs are being met and that protections from nursing home abuse are provided. In the past, some victims of such abuse may have been denied the opportunity to seek justice in a civil court. Recent changes in federal regulations may help these victims and their families seek justice.
For many people in Pennsylvania, the delivery of a child is fairly straightforward. Often, even if there are complications in a pregnancy or delivery, skilled doctors or other health care providers can take appropriate action in order to ensure a safe delivery for both the child and the mother. Unfortunately, parents in another state claim that medical malpractice caused their son's birth injury.
When a loved one becomes ill or injured, most families in Pennsylvania have a desire to provide care for that person. Unfortunately, their medical needs often become more than family members can manage, prompting them to seek out facilities that can take care of their loved one. While it is a difficult decision for many to come to, they put their faith in nursing home staff to provide appropriate care. Unfortunately, some patients ultimately suffer from nursing home neglect and abuse.
As reported by The Tribune-Review, a new federal rule gives more protection to nursing-home residents and their families who want to sue nursing homes because they were abused or neglected. The article quotes Robert Peirce & Associates attorney Bob Daley, who has been a tireless advocate for better protection for nursing home patients.
Congratulations to attorney Max Petrunya, who has been inducted into the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County. At the age of 31, Petrunya is one of the youngest members to be invited into the community of lawyers.
When a person in Pennsylvania seeks treatment at the hospital, they do so with the hope that whatever treatment is provided will help improve their condition. Unfortunately, doctors and nurses can make mistakes that lead to serious harm. For example, one out-of-state man and his wife claim in a medical malpractice lawsuit that a nurse's mistake ultimately left him wheelchair-bound.
