Wishing You a Wonderful Weekend from Philadelphia! (

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

We hope you have been enjoying our posts over the past few months and we wanted to thank everyone for your plusses, comments, and shares! Since we have had a bunch of new followers recently, we thought it was time to reintroduce ourselves and our area!

For over four decades, the lawyers at Cohen, Placitella & Roth have brought an unwavering commitment and dedication to the legal representation of individuals and families devastated by injury or death caused by unsafe products, professional malpractice or negligent and reckless misconduct.

It is imperative that any action taken be done on the advice of counsel.

Is There Such a Thing as a Traffic “Accident”? (

Safety advocates are pushing to have the word "accident" removed when talking about car accidents because it leads to a lack of concern in drivers.

According to a New York Times article, the word accident implies an occurrence that is both unavoidable and unforeseeable – something that the at-fault driver could not prevent.

However, many of the causes of car accidents are due to distracted driving, drunk driving, or violating traffic laws, which are things a driver can control.

There are such things as traffic accidents, but they're not as common as you might think.

An example of an accident could be an animal jumping out in front of a car on a poorly-lit road. In order to determine if something is an "accident", an investigation is done.

If you've been injured in a Philadelphia car crash, contact our firm.

Connection Between Sports & Brain Injury (

Sports are very common for people of all ages in America, and while they're great for exercise, they can also be dangerous.

A Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, happens when a blunt force hits the head and injures the brain. A common type of TBI is a concussion, and about 22% of people who get a mild concussion don't recover fully.

After receiving multiple concussions, a person can develop chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which has no cure and can cause memory loss, aggression, etc.

If you've sustained a TBI, you may have a case against coaches, leagues, schools, and more. In many of these situations, the lawsuit may say the defendant isn't liable for the injury itself, but for allowing the player to return too early.

At the law offices of Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C., our brain injury attorneys have handled of number of TBI cases successfully, and understand that these case types require skill and knowledge. If you or your loved one has suffered a TBI from a sports injury, let us help you – contact us today (888-973-0072) for your free consultation.

The death rate amongst newborn heart surgery patients at St. Christopher’s in Philadelphia is nearly triple the national average, and yet no one seems to know why. (

The reasons for the high rate of birth injury and death at Philadelphia's St. Christopher hospital are unclear, and the hospital has been accused of failing to properly investigate the causes of birth injury and death.

Further, the hospital has also refused to admit fault, instead, repeating its goals of consistent and accurate data collection.

We strongly feel that the high rate of childhood death and birth injury at St. Christopher’s hospital, as well as the fact that the hospital has not taken proper steps to fully investigate deaths and make meaningful changes to protect against similar incidents in the future, is unacceptable.

Do you know which common types of personal injuries often result in lawsuits? (

Injury law covers a wide array of sources of personal injury that result from the negligence of others, and they are the most common type of lawsuit filed in the United States each year.

Some of the sources of personal injuries are listed below, and some of them may surprise you.

Medical Malpractice
If a doctor or healthcare provider acts negligently when providing you with care, and an injury results, it constitutes medical malpractice.

Product Liability
Personal injuries can be sustained when a product fails unexpectedly, causing injury, or is designed in such a way that the consumer who purchased the product suffers an injury.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
Personal injuries are very common in accidents involving motorized vehicles, including cars, trucks, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, boats, aircraft, buses, trains, subways, and taxis.

Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are common at places of business. For instance, a person may slip on a puddle of water or an icy patch on the property of a business and suffer injuries.

Bicycle Accidents
Bicyclists are often involved in accidents that can result in personal injuries. The most common accidents involving bicycles result from improper maintenance of a bike pathway or instances where the cyclist is hit by a motorized vehicle.

Defective Drugs
Defective drugs are responsible for a number of personal injury cases each year. Improper labeling and undisclosed health risks are two of the main reasons these defective drugs cause harm to those unsuspecting victims they are intended to help.

Have any of these happened to you? The professionals at Cohen, Placitella & Roth, PC provide clients with a free initial consultation at absolutely no charge. Do not hesitate. Contact our team today to discuss your personal injury claim. Our Philadelphia office can be reached at 866-291-7088.

Questions Raised About Safety and Laws for Uber, Lyft, and Other Rideshare Companies (

You are probably aware of Uber and other ride-share companies that are popping up all over the country; however, you probably aren't clear (as many are not) on issues of liability and insurance in the event that something goes wrong.

The Insurance Questions – Who Is Liable in an Accident?

Perhaps the biggest concern with ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft is the issue of insurance. While both companies provide $1 million in liability coverage for each of their drivers in the event of negligence, the coverage only applies when the driver is transporting a passenger from the pickup point to the drop-off point. As such, three gray areas of potential non-coverage exist:

1) When the driver is using the app, but has not connected with nor picked up a passenger;

2) When the driver is using the app and has connected with a passenger on the app and is en route to pick them up, but the passenger is not yet in the vehicle; and

3) When the passenger is within the driver’s vehicle, but the vehicle is not en route.

Another looming concern is whether or not the drivers, and the vehicles that they drive, are safe. The system fails to adequately investigate drivers’ histories of safety (breaches) behind the wheel or any vehicle defects that may exist.

Hospital-acquired bacterial infections can be extremely dangerous for patients who are already immune and health-compromised. (

These infections become even more worrisome when the type of bacterial infection is one that is antibiotic-resistant, making the outbreak hard to treat and control. Sadly, in recent months several states have reported outbreaks of Burkholderia cepacia in healthcare facilities; the outbreak is being linked to the use of a prefilled syringe.

The state of Pennsylvania alone recently announced that it has identified 20 cases of the bacterial outbreak, according to an article in Amongst the 20 cases, all of the patients affected by the bacterial infection were residents of facilities that used prefilled saline flush syringes. After testing syringes and discovering that they were infected with Burkholderia cepacia, the facilities have ceased using them.

New Jersey has identified at least two cases of the bacteria associated with syringe use.
