Attorney Profile

In nearly four decades as an attorney at The Beasley Firm, LLC, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Scott A. Bennett has assisted victims of accidents and their family members in filing claims, seeking settlements and suing negligent parties. As an experienced trial lawyer, he understands how to best represent his clients in court to achieve the maximum compensation to which they are entitled by law, and he aggressively pursues justice for those he represents.

The cause of a motor vehicle accident may be a reckless or careless driver. However, Mr. Bennett is aware that factors such as road conditions and defective automotive parts can also contribute to serious crashes. He does not take cases at face value, but performs a thorough investigation of the circumstances, consulting with experts to construct an accurate picture of the situation. With this approach, he has frequently been able to achieve large awards to compensate for his clients’ pain and suffering, lost quality of life and financial damages.

A missed or wrong diagnosis, surgical mistake or other error made by a health care provider may lead to the need for further treatment, expensive hospital stays, permanent disability and even death. Mr. Bennett takes cases involving medical malpractice with the goals of securing funds to lessen the financial impact of the injury and holds physicians accountable to prevent them from hurting more patients.

After earning his law degree from Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law, Mr. Bennett literally wrote the book on product liability, along with partner Jim Beasley, Jr. He brings this knowledge to bear when assisting clients injured by faulty products. Whether the flaw is a result of a design or manufacturing error, or inadequate labeling, Mr. Bennett does not rest until all responsible parties are held liable.
