Personal injury cases result from a specific injury event which leaves the victim(s) with compensable damages. While these cases may seem fairly straightforward at first, they get exponentially more complex with each additional plaintiff or defendant. This is why it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side if you have been injured in an accident.
The benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer are numerous. They will:
- Investigate the case on your behalf
- Attempt to reach a settlement on your behalf before going to trial
- Defend you if the case goes to trial
- Advise you throughout the process
Pennsylvania slip and fall accidents
Slip and fall accidents have the potential to cause major, permanent injuries. These accidents fall under the umbrella of premises liability, as they result from the lack of proper maintenance of a property. Sometimes these incidents take place within a place of business, such as a slip on a wet floor. Other times they happen outdoors, such as a slip on ice or a trip on an uneven sidewalk. Regardless of where they occur, we will have to argue that your injury resulted from the negligence of the property owner — or whoever was meant to keep the property safe.
Slip and fall settlements in Pennsylvania can also be extremely tricky to reach due to the large amounts of money paid out as damages by some trial juries.
Pennsylvania car accidents
Car accident claims are often complex because of how easily multiple parties can become involved. A fender bender may seem fairly simple to resolve, but what if the car that bumped into you rolled forward after being hit by another car? What if your injuries would not have been as severe if the airbag deployed properly? There are so many moving parts in car accident cases which can severely complicate Pennsylvania car accident settlements and trials. And, that is without even getting into modified comparative negligence.
