The aftermath of an accident that leaves you with injuries can be a difficult time as you struggle to pay for medical treatment. Your accident might also impact your earning potential depending on the severity of your injuries.
Luckily, you may be able to recover compensation for these losses if your accident involved another party’s negligence or if you were involved in a car accident in Pennsylvania. For more information, get in touch with an Upper Darby, PA personal injury attorney at Solomon, Sherman and Gabay. We will review your case and determine if you have reason to file a claim or lawsuit.
There is no one type of case that falls under the heading of “personal injury.” We handle several types of cases, focusing on these in particular:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Being involved in a car accident can leave you facing medical bills, lost wages, and various other struggles. In Pennsylvania, your own insurance company is responsible for providing you with compensation for these losses after a car accident. Even if your accident occurred because someone else was negligent, under Pennsylvania’s no-fault policies, your insurer is first to pay you.
That doesn’t mean they will offer a fair settlement initially. An insurance company is a business. When you file a claim, it’s likely your insurer will attempt to lowball you.
This is one of many reasons to hire an Upper Darby personal injury lawyer after a car accident. We can negotiate aggressively for an appropriate settlement on your behalf. If your injuries are severe enough, we can also help you file an additional claim or lawsuit against a negligent party. Along with car accidents, we handle truck accident cases, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and more.
You have a certain responsibility when using a product that can potentially cause harm. You must read the instructions and follow them accordingly. However, even if you do so, a product might still cause injury if it is defective in some capacity. In these instances, we can help you pursue compensation by filing a claim or lawsuit to collect from the insurance company of the product’s careless designers or manufacturers.
A property owner or manager needs to keep an eye out for hazards on their properties that can cause accidents. If they become aware of hazards, they need to take steps to minimize the chances that they will cause harm to guests who have a legal right to be on their properties.
Sometimes they fail to do so. If you were injured on someone’s property because they were negligent, contact an Upper Darby personal injury attorney to learn more about your legal options.
