The BB&T Railing Accident
What happened at the concert outside Philadelphia?
A railing collapsed at BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ at approximately 10:30 PM during the Snoop Doog and Wiz Khalifa concert. There are media reports that more than 40 people were injured. People injured by the accident were taken to five different hospitals, including Cooper University Hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center and Virtua Hospital in Camden, and Inspira Medical Center and Kennedy University Hospital in Cherry Hill.
Were you there?
We are also looking for eyewitness reports who can add context to the social media videos which have been posted. These accounts may be crucial to determining who is liable for those hurt in the accident. If you were there, and particularly if you have video or photographs, please contact us. We will be in touch shortly.

Against Big Business
Our lawyers have sued some of the largest health care companies, insurance companies, local hospitals and other corporations both in the local area and nationally. We may be a small team but we carefully select cases so that we have the resources to litigate them properly and we are not allocating our time to a case that we don’t think we have a shot of winning.
For Individuals & Families
We represent our personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that there is no upfront cost to hire us and you owe nothing to us unless we receive a recovery for you. We know that litigation is expensive and our clients generally don’t have the money to front the cost to take a case to trial. Our personal injury practice consists largely of the representation of individuals and families in the five counties that make up the Philadelphia area, including Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties.
