WRONGFUL USE OF CIVIL PROCEEDINGS - DRAGONETTI ACT

The civil legal system should be used to aid those who have been wronged or injured. Unfortunately, not everyone sees the legal system as a tool for achieving justice. Some attorneys and individuals misuse the legal system, wrongfully filing lawsuits that are without merit. Whether the filing of a baseless lawsuit is described as wrongful use of civil proceedings, abuse of process, bringing a wrongful civil action or filing a frivolous lawsuit, this type of litigation unfairly burdens the court system, drives up the costs of litigation and insurance, and most importantly, causes substantial harm to those who are named as defendants in such actions.

If you have been a defendant to a meritless lawsuit, you can fight back. Under a statute known as the Dragonetti Act, you may be able to recover damages including the expenses you incurred defending the baseless lawsuit; monetary losses caused by the lawsuit, such as lost wages; emotional distress; and punitive damages. In order to obtain compensation, the meritless litigation must have terminated in your favor.

If you have suffered financial harm as a result of wrongful use of civil proceedings, it is crucial to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Our skilled trial lawyers can help you secure all of the compensation to which you may be entitled. Our dedicated attorneys can also help you deal with your insurance company, as well as the insurer of the other party or parties. The insurance companies have lawyers working hard to minimize their payouts; you need a lawyer who will work just as hard for you.

At Feldman Shepherd, we are committed to helping our clients throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey obtain the best possible recovery as expeditiously as possible. We are here to serve you with hard work, attention to detail and a caring approach tailored to your individual needs. If we may be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
