Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a health care provider where the treatment provided or should have been provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community. Medical mistakes can often lead to prolonged hospitalizations and devastating injuries, including birth defects, brain damage, loss of function and normal activities, and death. It is important to talk to an EXPERIENCED Medical Malpractice attorney as soon as you suspect that medical malpractice or neglect may have occurred.

Car and Truck Accidents

Traffic collisions may result in injury, death and vehicle damage. A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, driver skill and/or impairment, and driver behavior. Injuries from motor vehicle accidents should be reported to the police immediately. If the injuries are a result of anothers neglect or fault, experienced lawyers like those at The Law Offices of John G. Kelly P.C. should be consulted as soon as possible.


We assist clients regardless of the degree of harm, but focus our efforts on those accidents involving people who have been severely injured or have lost loved ones as a result of a car or truck accident.

Construction Accidents and Workplace Injuries

The leading safety hazards on a construction site involve falls from height, lack of proper scaffolds, excavation accidents, electrocution, equipment failures,machine malfunctions, and being struck by falling objects. Some of the main health hazards on a site are asbestos, solvents, chemicals and manual handling activities.

If you have sustained workplace injuries on a job site, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical care, future treatment, pain and suffering, and disability.

Contact us immediately and we will discuss your case with you.

Nursing Home Negligence

T The World Health Organization defines nursing home negligence or abuse as a “a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person." It is the expectation of trust and care that when violated forms the basis of any claim.

There are laws in place to protect the elderly from negligent care and/or abuse. We at the Law Offices of John G. Kelly P.C. take pride in knowing these laws and standards and applying them to protect the elderly and or disabled population within our nursing homes and facilties.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a claim against a person, hospital, or corporation which can be held liable for the death of another. A death is wrongful when caused by a party acting negligently, recklessly, or with a complete disregard for another persons health and/or safety. The claim is brought in a civil lawsuit, usually by the surviving family members of a deceased. Wrongful death cases present challenging legal and medical issues. They are also very emotional for the family members involved. Our understanding of these issues and empathy towards those who have suffered such a loss, separates our firm from all the others.

Product Liability and Defective Products

It is the responsibility of any manufacturer or distributor to compensate for injury caused by any defective merchandise that it has provided for sale. There are three types of defective or dangerous product liability claims: dangerous product design, dangerous manufacture and failure to provide adequate warning. Whether the product is an automobile, household item, machine or any other device, if it has caused injury, a product liability case may be pursued. Immediate consultation is required in order to preserve and test the product at issue. We have obtained millions of dollars in product defect cases and will handle your claim with the same level of success as we have for others.

Premises Liability and Slip and Fall

When you are injured while lawfully on someone else’s property, the owner is liable for your injuries if the owner’s negligence caused your injury. A slip and fall accident can occur in almost any location, from a wet floor in the grocery store to a dangerously uneven sidewalk. Not every situation gives rise to legal liability, but if the injury is caused by a defective condition on the property,a compensable claim may be made. Our office has reperesented hundreds of people who have sustained serious injury as a result of a dangerous condition left or created by an owner or leaseholder.

Worker’s Compensation

Employees iare automatically entitled to receive certain benefits when they suffer an occupational disease or accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment. Such benefits may include cash or wage-loss, medical bill payments, medical and career rehabilitation benefits, and in the case of accidental death of an employee, benefits to dependents. It is the goal of our office to provide you with an experienced, successful workers compensation lawyer to handle any injury suffered during the course of your job.

Our firm has the skill, resources and record of success needed to litigate your claim, however complex. If you have been injured in an accident, as the result of malpractice or neglect of a person or entity, the attorneys at The Law Offices of John G. Kelly, P.C. can help you.
