When It Comes to Choosing The Right Accident Lawyers For Your Case, Experience Matters
Your injury was not your fault, but after an accident, it can seem like you are all alone. Insurance companies will try and force a settlement on you before you even know how serious your injuries are. Medical bills pile up, and lost time at work means less income and the risk of losing health benefits, promotions, and bonuses.
When you or a family member have been injured in an accident, you will need a lawyer, and not just any lawyer will do. You need the best personal injury lawyer in Philadelphia. You need a local attorney that will listen to you and treat you like family. You need someone who will go the extra mile, even after hours and on weekends. You need an unrelenting bulldog who will make sure you don’t have to live a lifetime of suffering. You need the reassurance of a team of some the best injury lawyers in Philadelphia.

Dealing with a car accident is challenging enough, between your physical recovery and the need to file massive amounts of insurance paperwork. You’re likely not up to the task of pursuing legal action on your own at this time, which is why it is all the more important to hire a lawyer to represent you. Regardless of your situation, a team of experienced car accident lawyers can make or break your case, starting from the moment you commit to obtaining compensation through litigation.
For example, one of the first major tasks associated with any lawsuit is the need to file paperwork with your local court. This can be a major task to undertake alone, but with a personal injury lawyer to assist you, you’ll likely be able to make quick work of all of these necessary documents. Your lawyer will even be able to double-check your work to ensure that it is free of errors that could delay your case down the line.
Also, as your case progresses, you’ll be faced with numerous choices regarding your litigation strategy. On your own, you may be left searching in the dark for informed options. With your own car accident lawyer, though, you’ll be able to ask as many questions as you need and receive informed answers, based upon experience, each and every time.
Slip and Fall / Trip and Fall
Have you recently experienced a slip and fall accident? If so, you know the pain and suffering that can come in the wake of such an occurrence firsthand. Because of this, you may be considering your options for obtaining compensation for your injuries. For many slip and fall accident victims, qualified litigation against the liable parties can often lead to the most financially lucrative outcomes.
However, filing and executing a slip and fall accident liability lawsuit is not an easy task, by any means. Even with the legal assistance of an experienced lawyer, you may feel like a fish out of water when it comes to the many legal terms used in the context of your pending lawsuit.

Limited Tort Claims
Pennsylvania law requires every driver to have insurance for their vehicles. However, unlike many other states, Pennsylvania allows drivers to select between full tort insurance and limited tort insurance. The differences between these types of insurance can have a substantial effect on your ability to collect compensation if you were injured in a car accident. If you have limited tort insurance and have been hurt in a car crash, contact our office to get in touch with an one of our Philadelphia limited tort attorneys right away to begin the process of filing your claim with your insurance company.
Fracture and Broken Bones
Broken bones should be treated as soon as possible. Broken bones can lead to internal bleeding and infections among other life-threatening problems. Our personal injury experts know the best way to proceed with your case. We work with the insurance company and the medical providers to ensure your broken or fractured bone is treated promptly. We take the stress and allow you and your family the peace of mind to rest and recover.

Back and Neck Injuries
Even if the spinal cord remains unharmed, damage to your spinal column or the vertebrae in the spinal column can also cause serious issues. If a vertebra is fractured, it can cause back pain or stiffness and may even alter the curvature of the spine. A sprained or strained spinal cord can also cause severe pain and may limit movement. And a herniated disc, which lies between the vertebrae in the spinal cord, can result in nerve irritation and pain.
Treating a back injury can require surgery, medication, and physical therapy after your accident. Depending on your job, you may not be able to return to work right away or at all. And unfortunately, these medical bills may add up and cost you and your family significant amounts of money.
Our personal injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Whether you’ve been bitten by a strangers dog, a neighbors dog, a friends dog or a relatives dog, it is usually the insurance company of the dog owner who ends up paying your damages. If the insurance company fails to provide a fair settlement, your injury lawyer can negotiate through arbitration or mediation. These are both very effective ways of resolving cases without having to file a lawsuit.
After undergoing a medical procedure recently, you might have noticed that something is off…very off. You might be in more pain in or around the procedure sight, or you might be suffering from a number of side effects that the doctor in charge of your treatment did not warm you about. In either case, your negative medical outcome might be a result of poor or negligent care, which in turn may justify a medical malpractice lawsuit with the help of a personal injury lawyer who has experience dealing with these kinds of cases.
If you have been injured on the job, your world could be turned upside-down in a matter of seconds. In addition to physical pain, emotional stress, and a whirlwind of confusion, you will be asked to trust insurance companies—those same companies who have the goal of yielding profits to handle all the costs associated with your recovery.
Sadly, insurance companies genuinely lack a true understanding of what recovery entails. They have a very clear idea about the costs associated with recovery, and because of that clear understanding, they know how to save money. Sadly, these savings most often come at the expense of other people’s well being especially those who have been injured. However we CAN help you.
