Go Justice Network Provides Free Consultations in Medical Malpractice Cases

medical malpractice attorneyFor Philadelphia-area attorney Feeda Musitief, helping patients get justice in medical malpractice cases is a major component of his personal mission to “save personal injury victims from becoming victims of the law.” That’s why he and his organization, Go Justice Network, offer free legal consultations to anyone who believes they have been injured to due surgical errors, prescription drug errors, misdiagnoses, and other examples of medical malpractice.

In many cases of medical malpractice, victims are unsure how to proceed. There are a number of special procedures that must be followed just to file an initial complaint. For example, in order to file a medical malpractice claim in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, a patient must be able to prove that they had a direct doctor-patient relationship with the healthcare provider in question, that the doctor was negligent, and that this negligence directly caused an injury that led to general or specific damages.

Many victims may be unsure how to provide this proof, or how to proceed once it’s collected. That why Musitief and the Go Justice Network provide their expertise free of charge for an initial consultation that will assess the strength of the patient’s case based on the evidence they’re able to provide. For hundreds of patients eager to seek justice, these services have proved invaluable, giving them a jumping off point to pursue their case further. In most medical malpractice cases, attorneys in the Go Justice Network are able to provide their services on a contingency basis, meaning the client is not required to pay unless a settlement or award is collected.

An experienced attorney in his own right, Musitief takes on cases himself whenever possible. If necessary, he refers clients to other attorneys in the Go Justice Network, some of the nation’s top litigators for whom Musitief vouches 100%. While most of the Go Justice Network’s attorneys are based in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Musitief also helps connect clients with the best attorneys all over the country, free of charge.

Some of the types of medical malpractice cases Musitief and the Go Justice Network have successfully litigated in the past include surgical errors, misdiagnoses, failures to diagnose, defective medical products, prescription drug errors, childbirth injuries, and anesthesia errors. When combined with all other settlements collected in his practice, these cases have resulted in millions of dollars in compensation being collected for Musitief’s clients. While no amount of money can erase the wrongs that have been done to these people, collecting damages can help them feel a sense that justice has been served.

If you believe you or a loved one may have been the victim of medical malpractice, it’s best not to wait. The sooner you initiate your legal action, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to collect the damages you deserve.

Go Justice Network Connects Personal Injury Victims with Top Lawyers

personal injury attorneyPhiladelphia-based Go Justice Network has connected hundreds of clients with the United States’ top personal injury lawyers, providing its services free of charge and facilitating the litigation of cases which have resulted in millions of settlement dollars being collected on the behalf of those clients.

Founded by Philadelphia personal injury lawyer Feeda Mustief, Go Justice network says its mission is to “save personal injury victims from being victims of the law.” The network has furthered this goal by connecting hundreds of personal injury clients with competent legal representation, not just in Pennsylvania, but all around the U.S. Recent cases successfully litigated by Go Justice Network lawyers have resulted in a total of millions of dollars in settlements being collected, including a single one-million-dollar settlement involving an ankle injury.

Go Justice Network assists clients by providing guidance and a list of lawyers with the specialized skills to argue their particular case. Most lawyers in the network work on a contingency basis for personal injury cases, meaning clients are not charged for their legal representation unless a settlement is collected. In cases where a settlement is reached, the lawyer will take an agreed-upon percentage, plus reimbursement for litigation costs. If no settlement is collected, the client will not be responsible for any costs. Go Justice Network’s services are provided free of charge to clients; instead, its operations are funded by collecting a referral fee from the lawyer in cases where settlements are won.

Many lawyers in the Go Justice Network are based in Philadelphia; although, clients from anywhere in the U.S. can use its services to find a lawyer to take on their case. Whenever possible, Mustief takes on cases himself, although he fully vouches for the lawyers in his network, saying he has, “personally vetted each attorney in [his] network and stands behind the white glove, ethical service victims will receive.”

Go Justice Network founder Feeda Mustief is proud to be providing these services free of charge and encourages personal injury victims from Philadelphia and all around the country to take advantage of them.

What Does A Liability Case Mean?

Defective products are something we all face in our day-to-day lives, but many of us don’t stop to consider what potential harm can arise from dangerously defective products. Go Justice Network provides some preliminary information about liability cases on our website, but we wanted to take this opportunity to go into a little bit more detail about the case types, precedents and other crucial information regarding liability cases. We felt this was particularly important because, even though defective products are very common, many people are not aware of the definitions and steps that can be taken after you’ve been the victim of a potentially dangerous or harmful product.

Manufacturing Defect

The first category we’ll look at is manufacturing defect, which is an unintended defect in a product that happened somewhere in the manufacturing process. In other words, the manufacturing of the product did not go according to plans, and for some reason the defect was not noticed before releasing the product to the general public. A defect like this can be anything from a car with missing brake pads to electronics that have outdated or incorrectly placed components. In the worst case scenarios, defects like this can present life-threatening dangers and have, in many cases, resulted in the manufacturer both pulling all products from the market as well as providing extensive settlement claims. Manufacturing defects can also be instances where a product has been misused in a way that the manufacturer should have foreseen and prevented. As an example, one of the most famous manufacturing defect cases was the Peanut Corporation of America case that lead to several deaths before the defect was discovered and the product removed from the market.

Defective Design

The second category of liability is defective design, which people often confuse with a manufacturing defect. The difference is that, in this case, the mistake happened in the design process of the product, rather than something not going according to designs and plans in the manufacturing process. There can also be cases that are a combination of the two, since sometimes it can be difficult to set them apart. Whether a company is responsible for the defect depends on whether there was enough of a foreseeable risk involved with the production of the product for its intended use. There are various famous defective design cases, but some of the best known include the Hasbro Easy-Bake Oven that lead to serious burns, as well as an amputation, and the Vioxx painkiller that lead to a patient’s death from a heart attack.

Marketing Defect

The final category is marketing defect, which in practical terms means a case where a consumer has not been warned sufficiently about the dangers of handling a product, of handling it in specific ways or of a particular dangerous characteristic of the product. Often this refers to warning labels, user guides and other instructional materials. Obviously a case like this can easily present a danger of serious injuries or death, and must consequently be taken very seriously. There are several famous examples of marketing defect cases, one of the most recent being the Kotex tampon case that almost lead to the plaintiff’s death.

Contrary to their reputation among some people, liability cases are not “frivolous.” They can, in fact, often be a matter of life and death, where it’s important to make the manufacturers and companies responsible for their errors and negligence. If you have any reason to suspect you’ve encountered a potentially dangerous defective product in your own life, we strongly encourage you to contact us so that we can put you in touch with the right personal injury lawyer.

A Brief Glimpse Into Pennsylvania Wrongful Termination Laws

Have you just lost your job in Philadelphia? If you have, you might be contemplating whether or not you have good cause to call a civil rights lawyer in Philadelphia so that you can file a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Similar to that of many other states, Pennsylvania employees work “at-will.”

In other words, you can be let go for any reason, or at any time, by your employer. However, there are some instances where the at-will rule cannot apply. For example, the rule does not apply if your employer let you go for a discriminatory reason or in retaliation for you exercising your rights under the hour and wage laws.

In The Case Of Discrimination

Federal law says that employers cannot let an employee go because of their color, sex, race, national origin, religion, age, pregnancy, citizenship status and disability, and the same goes for PA law. Additionally, if you believe that you were neglected a promotion because of your age (or other discriminatory reason) and go to your HR department, your employer cannot let you go for confiding in your HR director. Lastly, you employer cannot let you go for taking the initiative to end stop discriminatory behaviors.

Hour And Wage Rights

Right now, PA employees make, at a minimum, $7.25 an hour. Both federal and PA law states that employees who work more than 40 hours qualify for overtime pay. What’s more, if you work more than 5 hours, you are allowed to have a 30-minute unpaid break. If you or anyone you know is forced to work overtime without being properly compensated for that time, you have a right to exercise your rights. And, if your employer fires you because of that, it is likely that they will have a lawsuit on their hands.

What we touched on above is just the tip of the iceberg, as wrongful termination laws are different in each state and can also be very complicated issues. If you believe that your Pennsylvania-based employer has violated your rights, it is smart to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.

The Increase of Civil Rights Lawsuits Against Police Brutality

We see it with increasing frequency. Questions and concerns are arising over police brutality all over the country. With news coverage of these incidents, it has become clear that the public and the law enforcement officers interpret the circumstances differently.

There has been a disturbing trend the last few years where police have deliberately lied about their actions when self-reporting the altercation.

As American citizens, we have rights that need to be granted to us. When we’re pulled over in the car or suspected by law enforcement to be involved in a crime, we expect to be treated fairly if we don’t present violence or danger to the officers. The public typically questions whether or not the force was warranted after seeing footage on the news. What we ask ourselves is whether your civil rights were violated.

We have filed a complaint against Pennsylvania State Constables for violating the civil rights of 39-year-old Kevin McCullers in his own driveway. The sudden firing on McCullers was unprecedented and without warning, leaving him paralyzed and permanently disabled, requiring lifelong care. Other across the country haven’t been so lucky.

The most recent case to garner national attention is the circumstantial death of Sandra Bland, a Texas woman who was pulled over for failing to signal a lane change. The dash cam footage shows the interaction between Trooper Brian Encinia and Bland, where Encinia shows aggression and irritation quickly.

This occurred just after the riots in Baltimore over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, killed in police custody. That’s not to mention the homicidal misconduct of law enforcement in North Charleston, SC, in the death of Walter Scott, or the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

Scrutiny is clamping down on federal and local law enforcement in every action they take. Dash cams and body cameras are recording all actions in the event of abuse. Still, there are cases that arise daily of individuals being brutally attacked or beaten while confined by handcuffs.

The city of Baltimore has paid almost $6 million in compensation to victims of police brutality. When your civil rights are violated by the officers who are supposed to protect you, you have the right to seek justice. The Baltimore Sun outlined over 100 settlements in the last four years over injuries due to excessive force and police brutality. The victims included an 87-year-old grandmother, a 26-year-old pregnant woman, and a 65-year-old church deacon.

To see video clips of some recent altercations and events that transpired while individuals were encountering police, the Huffington Post explains some cases and the police reports that followed. Many of us are unaware or notice that this brutality is occurring far more than it should.

We help protect your rights. When you need a civil rights lawyer in Philadelphia to hear your case, we take police brutality and wrongful actions of our law enforcement very seriously. No matter the state in which you reside, we will listen to your claim and use our network of established attorneys to help you receive the best representation. Don’t let a senseless act by law enforcement ruin your life.
