Motor Vehicle Accidents

The National Safety Council estimates that 40,000 people died in motor vehicle accidents in 2016―making it the deadliest year in more than a decade. An estimated 4.6 million roadway users were seriously enough injured to require medical attention. In Pennsylvania alone, there were 1,188 traffic fatalities in 2016, according to PennDOT. 

Proving a motor vehicle accident case requires not only legal experience, but also the ability to analyze data, including vehicle speeds, collision severity, vehicle damage, evidence at the scene, visibility, driver behavior, and other factors. We have the financial resources to retain accident reconstruction experts, so we can establish how and why a collision occurred, and we understand the “science” of motor vehicle accidents because we have been working with these experts for decades. 

Our thorough, comprehensive approach to motor vehicle accident cases maximizes the financial compensation we get for our clients. 

We’re Here to Help You 

Proper diagnosis and treatment are crucial. 

The injured person must be examined and treated immediately. Later, if you or your family member wants a new physician or a second opinion, let us know. We can refer you to a medical provider whom we know to be highly competent and trustworthy. 

Automobile Insurance companies want to save money. They are not on your side. Contact us immediately. 

We fight so you’ll receive justice and compensation for your injuries and other losses by holding the parties who are at fault—and their insurers—accountable. Insurers and their adjusters work to minimize payouts and avoid lawsuits. They do not care about your best interests. Contact us to find out whether you have grounds for a lawsuit before you speak to an insurer. 

We immediately evaluate your case so you know the status. 

We’re highly experienced at handling motor vehicle accident cases and can quickly review your case because we understand both the medical and legal issues. If your case is right for us, we’ll proceed with a full evaluation of the facts, medical record, and legal issues, and determine the likelihood of a fair settlement or need to file a lawsuit. We’ll keep you up-to-date on all developments and advise you on the range of possible outcomes so you can make educated decisions. 

Because a monetary award will significantly impact your life, we put our negotiation and trial skills and experience to work. 

We’re master negotiators, so you can rely on us to negotiate the best possible settlement for you. If the parties can’t agree on money, we’re prepared to file a lawsuit and aggressively try your case in the courtroom. And we have a proven track record of securing winning verdicts and other favorable resolutions in motor vehicle accident cases. 

Our personal bond is as important as our legal representation. 

Every day, we witness the havoc wrought on victims and their families following a motor vehicle accident. Injuries often are life-altering and can severely impact mobility, cognitive function, daily activities, and the ability to work. We help clients in these emotionally tough times by being accessible, supportive, and genuine. Our sensitivity and compassion make us better lawyers, too. 

If a new legal matter arises during your case, we can help.
