Roland Stock, LLC’s personal injury lawyers represent individuals who have been injured by the action or lack of action of another person or entity. An “injury” is not limited to physical harm, but can also encompass psychological harm. Typical personal injury scenarios include:
Motor Vehicle accidents are one of the most common forms of personal injury cases. Of course, these are cases wherein an individual or his or her property was damaged due to a negligent driver. While the facts of these cases are often simple to understand, the Commonwealth “Vehicle Code” and the need to work with insurance carriers complicates matters.
An individual’s liability or potential recovery may also change depending on whether or not there is an uninsured or underinsured motorist, whether or not a motorcycle was involved, and many other considerations.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, we can help. Reach out to the Attorneys at Roland Stock today.
Premises Liability in Pennsylvania encompasses the distinct legal theories of strict-liability and negligence. In Strict liability claims, a Plaintiff can recover damages if he or she can prove that the owner of a premises was conducting or allowing an inherently or abnormally dangerous condition on his or her property and that damages resulted therefrom. Examples of such conditions may be injuries caused by a wild animal kept on one’s property or injuries caused to a neighbors by using explosives on one’s property.
Negligence in premises liability claims needs to be accompanied by a duty to the injured individual and a breach of that duty. The duty owed is dependent upon the injured parties’ purpose for entering the given property. For instance, generally speaking, a higher duty is owed to an individual invited unto one’s property for the benefit of the property owner, which encompasses business owners and their patrons, than there is to an individual who has trespassed onto one’s property.
The Attorneys at Roland Stock have years of experience dealing with injuries caused by negligent or strictly liable property owners. Call us today.
Products Liability is an expansive area of law in which possible theories of liability can be based on negligence, breach of warranty, strict liability, and/or the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection law.
The practice of products liability based on a theory of negligence is founded upon the belief that manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers of goods owe a duty to consumers depending on their position in the product distribution claim. One seeking to recover from a products liability claim for negligence must prove that there was a duty to exercise due care, there was a breach of that duty, and damages resulted.
Conversely, strict products liability can be proven by demonstrating that either a manufacturer or a distributor placed a product on the market that was in a “defective condition” and that the product was used reasonably by the consumer.

Pennsylvania’s dog bite law encompasses theories of strict liability and negligence. Generally speaking, an owner and keeper of a dog is strictly liable for the medical expenses that result from an injury caused by the dog. However, to recover further damages, an injured individual needs to prove that one who had control of the dog was negligent with the dog or knew of the dog’s dangerous propensity.
Dog Bite litigation can become complicated when an injured individual attempts to prove there was negligence or knowledge of a dangerous propensity by the individual in control of the dog. The Attorneys at Roland Stock can assist you in your claim. Please call today.
