Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorneys

Philadelphia accidentsA serious injury can change your life in ways you could never have imagined. If you want to find a personal injury attorney, then let us fight to get the medical care, money, and justice you deserve. We’ll deal with the insurance company so that you can focus on more important things: getting better so you can get your life back on track.

Do You Have a Philadelphia Accident Claim?

The accident that caused your injury wasn’t intentional. But just because no one meant for it to happen doesn’t mean that no one caused it to occur. Tens of thousands of accidents happen each year due to negligence.

A person who’s negligent is careless, maybe reckless. They have a legal responsibility not to put another person in harm’s way. But they fail to meet that obligation, and an innocent person pays the price.

Our Philadelphia accident lawyers have decades of experience handling injury claims of all kinds. No matter what type of event caused your injuries, you have rights, and you deserve help to preserve those rights.

Why Do You Need a Philadelphia Accident Lawyer?

If you’re like many of our clients, you might not have planned to hire an attorney at first. You might have thought it would be easier or cheaper to deal with the case on your own.

But the longer you try to work on the claim, the clearer it becomes that this isn’t as simple as you thought it would be — the insurance company isn’t cooperating. You might become aware that you don’t even have a realistic idea of how much money you should be asking for, much less how to get it.

In all but the smallest claims, it’s in your best interests to consult an attorney. You wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) try to manage your medical treatment without a doctor, so why would you want to handle a legal claim without a lawyer?

Can You Handle a Case Yourself?

Handling a personal injury claim yourself

An attorney will seek compensation for the economic damages you suffered. That means the medical bills, the income you lost when your injury kept you from working, and other expenses with a clear price tag. If you carefully kept track of every cost and spent hours of your time aggressively negotiating, maybe you could get a settlement to compensate you for these losses.

But when your injuries are serious, your lawyer seeks more money for you than the out-of-pocket expenses the injury has cost you. We know that the accident has impacted your life in a lot of ways, and we want to get you money damages for all of those effects.

Pursuing compensation for pain and suffering can be tricky. Without a legal background, you don’t know how much is reasonable or what obstacles could stand in the way of getting compensation for pain and suffering at all. But our Philadelphia accident attorneys know the rules and exceptions that exist in Philly. We’ll fight to try and get the most money possible for you.

How Long Do I Have to Pursue a Philadelphia Accident Claim?

When you suffer injuries in an accident in Philadelphia, PA, your time to pursue a claim is limited, but most people don’t know that. They wait too long to act.

The Philadelphia Statute of Limitations

“In some cases, you have just 90 days to officially notify those at fault for your accident that you’re pursuing a claim.”
Accident injury claims in Philadelphia have what’s called a statute of limitations. This is the amount of time you have after being injured to file a claim.

In most cases, you have two years from the time of the injury to file a lawsuit. But there are exceptions, and most of them don’t benefit you.

What happens if you wait too long? Once the statute of limitations has passed, your rights expire. You can no longer seek compensation through a personal injury case.

No matter why you waited, no matter how much you need and deserve the money, the case is over. And that’s something that even the most experienced Philadelphia accident lawyer can’t change.

Act Fast to Protect Your Philadelphia Accident Claim

For many accident victims, an injury case is the only way to make the best physical and financial recovery from their injuries. To succeed, you need to take action right away. The sooner you speak with an accident lawyer in Philadelphia about your case, the better.

Once we’re working on your claim, we can start investigating immediately. That means getting ahold of your Philadelphia accident report and tracking down witness statements. We can research whether the person who caused your accident has a history of negligence. We can gather evidence like video surveillance footage or photos of safety hazards before it disappears, and use it to support your claim.

And, of course, once you put your case in our Philly accident lawyers, hands, you’ll never have to worry about missing deadlines. We’ll take care of everything.

How Much More Money Could an Attorney Get You?

People Who Hire An Attorney for Medical Malpractice Get On Average 3.5 Times MoreMany accident victims worry that they won’t be able to afford a lawyer. What they don’t know is that they really can’t afford to handle the claim without one.

Research has shown that attorneys get their clients 3.5 times more money, on average than claimants are able to get representing themselves. Even factoring in attorneys, fees, which we never charge our clients upfront, that’s far more than what you would get on your own.

If you have the chance to more than triple the money you get, why wouldn’t you?

How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Attorney?

Unsure if you want the headache of a legal battle? Our No Fee Promise curbs any feelings of anxiety. If we don’t win your case, you don’t pay us anything. We have the experience necessary to win a wide variety of personal injury cases. Don’t allow any more time to pass without qualified legal professionals at your side.

We Take Cases Just Like Yours: Personal Injury Claims

Car Accident Injuries

A car accident can turn your life upside down, but we’re here to help you get back on your feet again. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, either as a driver, passenger or pedestrian, we know how overwhelmed you must feel. You not only face a long road to recovery, but also potential financial hardship from lost wages and medical bills. Our personal injury attorneys have been handling car accident lawsuits for decades and will ensure you every step of the way.

Trucking Accidents

Collisions involving large trucks can be highly traumatic—and deadly. Approximately 10% of auto accident injury victims in a large truck collision are killed. Large trucks are also much more likely to be involved in multi-vehicle crashes than passenger cars. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, over 53,000 large trucks were involved in auto crash injuries in 2015, with over 4,000 of these injuries fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, our attorneys will see that you get the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents tend to result in serious injuries that lead to debilitating pain, lost wages and overwhelming medical bills that can leave you feeling trapped. Let us help you regain your freedom and get your life back. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, we’ll fight for your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve under the law.

Bus Accidents

If you or your loved one has been involved in a bus accident, you might be entitled to compensation for undue pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills that you now face. Even if you are not physically injured in a bus accident, you might need help coping with the psychological trauma in the aftermath. When a death occurs, the driver responsible might also face criminal charges for wrongful death. Our attorneys offer knowledgeable legal counsel and representation. We’ll fight for your rights, and help you get the settlement you deserve under the law.

Bicycle Accidents

Bike accidents are devastating, but they are often unavoidable. Even when you follow all the rules of the road, or are an experienced cyclist, you’re still at the mercy of the other vehicles around you and their reckless operators. Let us take a look at your bike accident report with our team of specialists and get to the bottom of how your accident occurred. Our bike accident attorneys want you to get the maximum compensation for your injuries, and will find out exactly what coverage applies to your situation—even if it was a hit and run.

Burn Injuries

Victims of fires and burn injuries are often left with scars, both physical and psychological, as they struggle with life-altering pain, lost wages and massive medical bills. When your burn injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, such as a landlord not following fire codes, you may be entitled to compensation under the law.

Pedestrian Accidents

While the number of car accident deaths is falling nationwide, pedestrian fatalities are on the rise. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), in the past decade, car crash fatalities decreased by 14%, but pedestrian deaths have increased by a whopping 27%.

If you or a loved one have been hit by a car and the driver is found to be at fault, they are responsible for the damages caused by their carelessness. This is one reason New Jersey requires that all drivers buy car insurance. We will get you the settlement you deserve from that policy when we file a personal injury claim on your behalf.

Hit and Runs

Fleeing the scene of an accident, also known as “hit and run”, is a crime in New Jersey. The perpetrator can face criminal consequences (such as jail time) and civil consequences (like a personal injury lawsuit). While it’s possible to file a lawsuit against the perpetrator of a hit and run accident, whether or not it will be successful depends on a variety of factors. The most important decision you must make when pursuing a hit and run accident claim is choosing an experienced lawyer who will be on your side. We’ve won hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for hit and run victims in situations just like yours.

Premises Liability

Philadelphia County has more than 1.5 million residents. Add in the 39.67 million tourists who travel to the city, Visit Philly reported, and you can see why the city is so lively. But when property owners take poor care of their premises, tens of millions of people are exposed to the safety risks they create.

Accidents on Philadelphia properties can range from slip and falls inside Harrah’s Philadelphia casino to tripping on cracked sidewalks. If you think that an unsafe property is what caused your injuries, our accident attorneys in Philadelphia can help you investigate. If you’re seriously injured on the premises of a store or business due to their negligence, they may be held responsible for your injuries. If they are, they will have to pay for the damages they caused after you’ve filed a premises liability claim. Reach out to us to find out more about what this entails, and how our premises liability attorneys can help you get the settlement you deserve.

Slip and Fall Accidents

If you’re suffering from a slip and fall injury that occurred on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to compensation. There are many dangerous conditions that can result in a person slipping or tripping, including poor lighting, torn carpeting, narrow stairs, or unexpected changes in flooring. Broken, cracked, icy or snowy public sidewalks can also result in slips and falls, as can hidden hazards such as potholes. When your injuries have been caused by someone else’s negligence, you need a slip and fall attorney who cares about both your physical and financial recovery.

Train Accidents

Philly is no stranger to train accidents. In 2015, a disastrous Amtrak accident happened in Philadelphia’s Port Richmond neighborhood. The train derailed, killing eight people and injuring hundreds. Even a less serious Philadelphia railroad accident can be the basis of a personal injury claim if you get hurt because of it. Philadelphia trolley accidents can occur on the city’s light rail vehicles. Philadelphia subway accidents can happen on underground rapid transit trains.

Construction Accidents

Construction can be a dangerous line of work, and construction workers put their safety—and their lives—on the line every day. Every year, hundreds of construction workers are killed on the job, and many more suffer serious injuries due to unsafe or unexpected conditions. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation by law.

Nursing Home Abuse

If you suspect that elder abuse or neglect is taking place in a nursing home, you need to take immediate action to protect the safety, health and legal rights of your loved one. Nursing home abuse puts the elderly in grave danger and is very distressing to both the victim and to their families. Let our nursing home abuse attorneys help you figure out the next steps to take right away.

Work Injuries

About 2,826,900 employees work in the Philadelphia metropolitan statistical area, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported. Workplace accidents at some of the city’s largest employers can hurt huge numbers of workers.

In 2014, the Philadelphia metropolitan area was the site of 72 fatal work accidents, the BLS reported.

Philadelphia work injuries can take many forms. Our Philly accident attorneys often see cases that involve:

  • Philadelphia construction accidents
  • Philadelphia crane accidents
  • Philadelphia demolition accidents
  • Philadelphia fires in the workplace
  • Philadelphia navy yard accidents

Companies in Philadelphia are required by law to pay the medical bills for employees injured at work. Sometimes, however, your employer isn’t responsible for your injuries. Faulty equipment or careless vendors can also be held responsible for accidents that result in life-threatening injuries. If your work injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation. Our workers’ compensation attorneys will help you figure out what damages are available to you, and help you get every dollar you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Dozens of general surgical and specialized hospitals call Philadelphia their home. These include such well-known facilities as the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Countless doctors, offices, clinics, outpatient centers, and other medical facilities also have Philly locations.

That’s great when you’re able to get the care you need without traveling far. But when a Philadelphia doctor or other healthcare provider makes a mistake, the consequences are serious. We treat your claim with the seriousness it deserves. If you were injured due to medical malpractice, our experienced attorneys will stand up for your rights and hold doctors responsible for their misconduct.

Birth Injuries

If your child was injured at birth, we understand how devastating it is to your family—and how devastating it is to struggle with the cost of providing physical therapy, special education and therapeutic services on top of that. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), hospitalization for birth defects alone costs the US over $26 billion each year. To find out if you are owed compensation from negligent medical professionals for your child’s birth injury, reach out to us today for a consultation.
