Being injured in an accident can leave you facing such losses as medical bills, lost wages if your injuries prevent you from working, and more. While you will hopefully never face such struggles, if you do, it’s important to know you may at least be able to recover financial compensation in Pennsylvania if your accident was a car accident or one that resulted from the negligence of another party.
Contact a Reading personal injury attorney to learn more. Our team at Solomon, Sherman & Gabay will review your case and explain your legal options.
Personal injury is a general term that applies to numerous types of cases. At our Reading personal injury law firm, our team focuses on such cases as:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Pennsylvania is a no-fault state. If you’re harmed in a car accident in Pennsylvania, your means of seeking compensation for such losses as your medical bills would be to file a claim to collect from your own insurance. It doesn’t matter whether someone else caused the accident. Your insurer is responsible for paying up.
That doesn’t mean they will. An insurance company will often respond to a claim by offering a relatively low settlement. Thus, you need assistance from a Reading personal injury attorney who can negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. You may also have the option of filing an additional claim or lawsuit to collect from the insurance of the negligent party who caused your accident if your injuries are severe enough. We can help you show you qualify to file an additional claim in these circumstances.
Along with car accidents, we also handle cases involving:
The designers and manufacturers of virtually all types of products have a responsibility to ensure their products are unlikely to cause harm when used according to the safety instructions. Unfortunately, they sometimes overlook defects.
You may be eligible to recover compensation if you were injured while using a defective product. Contact our Reading personal injury law firm for more information. We will investigate your accident and gather evidence showing it would not have occurred had the product’s designers or manufacturers not been careless.
There are many potential hazards on any given property that can cause accidents if they are not addressed. From spills to dangerous waste or chemicals, property owners and manufacturers have a responsibility to monitor for the presence of these hazards and to address them when they find them.
Not all property owners fulfill this duty. A Reading personal injury attorney can hold them accountable if you’re injured as a result of such negligence.
