"I strongly believe in the importance of clear communication in an attorney-client relationship. One of the worst things that can happen is to have a client confused or uncertain about the decisions they are making regarding their case. Face-to-face meetings and conversations with my clients allow me to fully understand their needs and expectations."
As a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer, Zachary D. Campbell advocates for his clients with the utmost care and concern. Mr. Campbell joined Metzger Wickersham in 2010 and specializes in litigation for the firm.
Why Attorney Campbell Practices Law
“One of the main reasons I enjoy being a lawyer is the sense of well-being I get after helping someone through a painfully emotional and physical time after they have been injured in a car crash. Unfortunately, you cannot turn back the hands of time, but I can be there for my clients as they struggle through their recovery. When I started practicing, I never knew how much impact a lawyer could have in just being there for their clients. After fighting for them, I take great satisfaction in knowing that, although it was a tough journey for my clients, ultimately I have helped to get them to a better place,” Mr. Campbell shared.
Mr. Campbell’s work style is thorough and communicative. He uses his years of experience to successfully and smoothly guide his injured clients through their lawsuits from start to finish. Mr. Campbell’s goal is to make sure his clients not only have trusted legal counsel but also a shoulder to lean on in their time of need.
Throughout his career, Mr. Campbell has handled all aspects of legal proceedings including multiple jury trials, mediations, arbitrations, depositions, oral arguments, hearings, and court conferences in a wide range of personal injury cases. He has worked in all phases of trial practice concentrating in the fields of automobile litigation, tractor-trailer litigation, premises liability, products liability, nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, and workers’ compensation.
Mr. Campbell has practiced throughout the state of Pennsylvania and has represented clients in over 30 different counties. He has extensive experience in Federal Court, including the Middle District of Pennsylvania’s Bankruptcy Court, where he has fought against Defendants’ attempts to avoid responsibility for causing injuries to his clients.
The Case That Changed It All
Early in his career, Mr. Campbell represented the family of an elderly woman with dementia who was left unattended at a skilled nursing facility. Unfortunately, she was able to wander from the facility despite strict orders that she be monitored given her condition. Tragically, she was found dead not far from the facility after she had fallen. The facility did not discover she was missing until after she was found dead. Mr. Campbell pursued the facility and discovered it had a history of allowing patients to wander from the facility unattended but had not taken any steps to prevent this. Mr. Campbell was not only able to secure a six-figure settlement for the family, but he also was able to bring to light the poor conditions at the facility. Shortly after pursuing the claim, the nursing facility was permanently closed, ensuring that this would not happen to anyone else.
