Daniel Jeck, a founding partner in the law firm of Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., has achieved remarkable results for his clients in a broad range of catastrophic injury cases, including numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, for over 24 years. He has been named as one of the Best Lawyers in America by the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States and is a perennial Pennsylvania Super Lawyer. Clients he has represented include children with cerebral palsy due to birth injuries, women who have suffered a delay in their diagnosis of breast cancer, and individuals who have been permanently paralyzed or killed due to a delay in their diagnosis of an infection, a sports-related accident, a defectively designed product, or a construction site accident.
Jeck has tried dozens of cases throughout his career. His most notable verdicts and settlements consist of a $8.9 million dollar settlement for a young child who suffered a brain injury during her mother’s labor, a $4.5 million dollar settlement at trial in New Jersey for a newborn who suffered a neurological injury when her mother’s uterus ruptured during childbirth, a $1.5 million verdict for a young woman who suffered from a delay in the diagnosis of an epidural abscess following the delivery of her son and a $4 million dollar settlement for a man who was paralyzed due to a delay in the diagnosis of a transverse myelitis which resulted in a spinal cord infarction. Other results include a $1.4 million dollar settlement for a man prematurely discharged from a local emergency room who died shortly thereafter from a heart attack and an $8 million dollar settlement against a product manufacturer on behalf of a young, permanently brain damaged child who was injured after having been given intravenous solution inappropriately formulated by defectively designed pharmaceutical equipment.
Born in Philadelphia, Mr. Jeck earned his B.A. degree from Pennsylvania State University in 1989 and his J.D. from the Temple University School of Law in 1992. Admitted to practice in state and federal courts in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, he is on the Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, the Pennsylvania and American Association for Justice.
