Winning Your Battles Since 1958 Over $2 Billion Awarded to Our Clients

Personal Injury Claims in Philadelphia

Selected to Best Law Firms® 2016 for Personal Injury Litigation

Since 1958, The Beasley Firm has set the standard for representing injured people and the families of people who have died in accidents or as the result of negligence. Firm founder Jim Beasley, Sr., was known as “the people’s lawyer” because of his history of taking on so many giants on behalf of the little guy. “Philadelphia’s version of the king of torts,” was how Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham described Beasley. “He really perfected-not started, but perfected – the art of tort litigation,” Abraham said.

Beasley won a record $29 million verdict in 1984 against Cessna on behalf of the family of Joe Guanere, an 18-year-old killed in an aviation accident due to a defective pilot seat. Beasley also won an $8 million verdict against the Philadelphia Housing Authority, on behalf of two single mothers who lost together six children in a fire at a PHA residence that didn’t have smoke alarms.

He set multiple records, including the highest personal injury jury verdict in Philadelphia-$907 million – and under his guidance, The Beasley Firm’s attorneys also obtained the two highest medical malpractice jury verdicts in Pennsylvania, at $100 million and $55 million. Our firm is also the only firm in history to successfully secure a verdict against the Republic of Iraq on behalf of families who lost loved ones in 9/11.
