Who pays for medical bills and lost wages if you’re injured in an accident?
Somebody has to pay for your medical bills, your lost wages, and the pain and suffering you and your family are experiencing. That “somebody” is the negligent party who caused the damage. Our personal injury law firm can help you pursue the matter.
Our personal injury lawyers have recovered damages for countless clients across Bucks County and Montgomery County and the surrounding areas.
Building a successful case and maximizing your compensation starts with assessing liability.
Determining who is at fault when there is negligence
Fault for the accident may seem obvious to you. After all the other driver swerved into your lane, or the grocery store manager did not clean up that dangerous, slippery spill in Aisle 13.
It’s important to know, however, that the person seeking to hold another party legally responsible for their personal injuries and damages bears the burden of proof. Evidence must support that it is more likely than not that the defendant is legally responsible for the personal injuries. And that the damages are the fault of the other party.
Under Pennsylvania law, the defendant may try to show that you were more at fault for the accident. Or that your recovery should be reduced or eliminated because your own negligence contributed to your injuries or damages.
Our personal injury lawyers can give you answers, inform you of the rights and liabilities of the parties, and provide legal representation backed by our knowledge and legal expertise.
There are many types of car accidents. The injury lawyers at our Doylestown and Norristown law offices have successfully litigated and/or settled many cases such as:
Our car accident lawyers leave no stone unturned in assessing liability and helping you get the compensation you need and deserve for your personal injuries.
Understanding the causes of car accidents can help you describe your accident more fully to build a successful car crash claim. It may even help you avoid a future car accident. Talk with one of our personal injury lawyers to get the compensation you deserve.
Whether you call them semis, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers or big rigs, an accident with these giants of the roadways causes the most catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury, paralysis, amputations and organ damage. Truck accidents are also some of the most legally complex personal injury claims, as there are often multiple parties that can be held liable. Our personal injury lawyers bring years of experience to bear in assessing fault and helping you recover damages.
Knowing how to fight potential jury bias against “bikers” is at least half the battle in getting you full and fair compensation for your motorcycle accident. As trial-tested veterans of the court, our personal injury lawyers present facts and evidence to build your case and have a track record of success for clients in Bucks and Montgomery counties.
If you have suffered harm as the result of an error committed by a physician, surgeon, OB-GYN, anesthesiologist, pharmacist, nurse or another medical professional, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim. Our personal injury lawyers are ready to help and offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and discuss your needs.
Nursing Home Abuse
If you believe that your parent, grandparent or other vulnerable adult relative has been the victim of physical, financial or emotional nursing home abuse or negligence, our personal injury lawyers can protect the rights and well-being of your loved one.
Slip and Fall Accidents
The National Safety Council reports that not only are falls a leading cause of injury in the United States, but they are also a leading cause of accidental death among adults age 65 and older. We hold property owners, managers, and other responsible parties liable when their negligence causes a slip and fall accident, ensuring that you are compensated for your injuries. Talk with one of our lawyers at our personal injury law firm.
In Pennsylvania, dog owners have a responsibility to restrain and control their dogs. If they do not — and especially if they know their dogs have the potential to bite or attack — they are liable for your injuries. Our personal injury lawyers help victims of dog bites in Bucks County, Montgomery County and the surrounding areas recover damages for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering in dog bite cases.
Although no amount of money can truly compensate you for your loss, it can help you cover the expenses associated with an accident caused by negligence and create some financial security for your family. We provide the compassionate counsel and vigorous legal representation you need to successfully recover monetary damages for wrongful death.
