Car accidents are perhaps the most common of all personal injury claims. We can help you negotiate a settlement with the appropriate auto insurance company (or win a courtroom verdict if necessary).
Disturbingly, medical malpractice is one of the nation’s leading causes of death. These cases can generate large amounts of damages, but they can be difficult to win.
A personal injury claim becomes a wrongful death claim if the victim dies from their injuries. Wrongful death claims differ from personal injury claims in many important ways.
You can win a workers’ compensation claim without proving fault, but you normally cannot collect damages for pain and suffering.
Construction accidents generate two main types of claims–workers’ compensation claims and premises liability claims. Workers’ compensation claims are easier to win, but personal injury claims usually yield more compensation.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents often arise from unsafe conditions on commercial or residential premises.
Homeowners’ and renters’ insurance policies typically cover dog bite claims. Pennsylvania dog owners are automatically liable for medical expenses caused by their dogs.
Brain injuries range in seriousness from mild concussions to life-threatening injuries.
The difficulty with pursuing a claim for catastrophic injuries is calculating medical expenses and lost income years or even decades into the future.
Like bus accidents, train accidents can involve dozens of victims and can require you to file a claim against the government.

What You Can Recover in a Philadelphia Personal Injury Claim?
Following is a list of some of the personal damages that you might qualify for:
- Past, present, and future medical bills;
- Past, present, and future lost earnings or occupational disability;
- Pain and suffering (sometimes three to five times the amount of medical bills);
- Mental anguish;
- Property damage;
- Loss of consortium (brought by the victim’s spouse)

Free & Confidential Consultation
Is it worth hiring a personal injury attorney?
Yes, it is worth it unless your claim is small. Even then, you might not know the real value of your claim until you talk to a lawyer. In most cases, an experienced personal injury lawyer will increase the value of your settlement or verdict by far more than their legal fees.
How much are lawyer fees for personal injury?
Personal injury lawyers do not charge by the hour. Instead, they charge a percentage (typically 33% to 40%) of the amount you win. If you win nothing, their services are free. That means you don’t need a dime in your pocket to hire a personal injury lawyer–only a viable claim.
What are the most common personal injury claims?
The most common personal injury claims include:
- Vehicle accidents;
- Slip and fall claims;
- Medical malpractice;
- Consumer product liability;
- Dog bites;
- Workplace accidents;
- Intentional assaults (a “road rage” accident, for example).
Strictly speaking, wrongful death claims are a separate type of claim.
What is a typical personal injury settlement?
Any average personal injury settlement amount is meaningless because personal injury claims range from minor dog bite injuries to catastrophic injuries involving paralysis and brain damage. Major limiting factors include the coverage limits of an insurance policy and the financial resources of the defendant.
