Every year, close to 4 million people in America suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents and more than 50,000 people are killed each year in car crashes. The majority of these accidents are due to driver negligence. If you've been injured in an accident because of a distracted, drunk, or reckless driver, a Philadelphia car accident attorney from our firm can help you achieve justice.
Our recent recoveries include $6.6 million for a young man paralyzed in a rollover, $3.5 million for a young woman killed on the interstate by a tractor-trailer driven too fast in a snowstorm by an exhausted driver, and a $1 million verdict for an individual rear-ended by a commercial driver.

Insurance adjusters deal with accident claims day in and day out. Though they are trained to be courteous to clients and claimants and may even take a personal interest in your health, it is ultimately their job to try to reduce the settlement you receive. Like any for-profit business, insurers exist to make money, not to make sure you’re taken care of. This means most car accident victims are at a disadvantage when it comes to negotiating a settlement. While you’ve probably never dealt with this situation before, the person at the other end of the phone does it all the time. Retaining an experienced car accident attorney in Philadelphia to handle your claim is a concrete step you can take to improve your chances. Our attorneys know how the claims process is supposed to go and we know the techniques that work when negotiating with insurers. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, you likely can’t afford to not get the settlement you need.

There are certain things you can do after a collision to help protect your right to compensation—and there are also things you should avoid lest you jeopardize it.
Pennsylvania operates under a "modified comparative negligence rule" when it comes to shared fault, which means that even if you are partially to blame for the accident that caused your injuries, you can still recover compensation from a personal injury lawsuit. Only if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for the accident will you be prevented from receiving damages.
The Pennsylvania statute of limitations for these types of claims is two years, but it's best to get started on your personal injury claim as soon as possible after an accident so that your attorney can speak on your behalf with the insurance company and start collecting evidence to defend your claim.
After an auto collision, swift action is needed to preserve evidence. We advise you to contact an attorney as soon as you are able to make sure no important data is lost. Sometimes, accident cases can be incredibly complex, and specific and detailed evidence may be essential to success. Our attorneys are ready to speak with you today to let you know the next steps in filing a claim. We have won over $2 billion for the victims of auto accidents and their families, and along the way, we’ve helped clients receive record-breaking verdicts and settlements.
