Don’t Hesitate To Fight For Compensation - Call Our Construction Accident Attorneys
As a construction worker, work accidents are a very real possibility which is why you likely take all of the necessary precautions to stay safe on the job. However, just because you’ve done the right thing doesn’t mean that others have.
While workers’ compensation prevents injured employees from suing their employers, it does not prevent them from taking action against third parties who actions or failure to act resulted in injuries.
A construction accident lawsuit could provide you and your loved ones with the compensation that you need to pay for lost wages, medical bills, and more. Our legal team offers free consultations to those who have been injured in a construction accident. Call now to learn more.
Our Work Injury Lawyers Are Proud To Represent Philadelphians
Work accidents can and do happen in every industry. When you’ve suffered a work injury, you can, with the help of a work injury lawyer, typically make two types of claims:
- Workers’ Compensation: A workers’ compensation claim, if approved, can provide an injured worker with coverage of their medical treatments relating to the work injury and a fraction of lost wages.
- Work Injury Lawsuit: A work injury lawsuit can provide compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, physical pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
These two claims can be filed at the same time. To get started, contact our local Philadelphia law firm today.

Car Accident Lawyers Standing Strong Against Negligent Drivers
You’ve been through the trauma of a car accident and have been fighting just to get your medical treatments covered. Now the insurance company is saying that the policy limit has been reached and they will no longer pay. What options do you have?
A car accident lawsuit can provide you with full compensation for both past and future medical treatments, lost wages, and more. The legal complaint is filed against the driver whose actions resulted in the accident and often their insurance carrier as well.
There are strict time limits associated with car accident cases so it’s best to contact our car accident lawyers as soon as possible so that we can begin working on your case.
Truck Accident Lawsuits
Thanks to advances in technology, trucks are bigger and more powerful than ever before. While this may be advantageous in many ways for hauling and shipping, it can be devastating when an accident occurs.
Our legal team aggressively fights for compensation for the victims of truck accidents. We do this by collecting the evidence needed to support the legal claim and preparing the case from the very beginning as though it will go to court.
That being said, the majority of truck accident lawsuits are settled outside of the courtroom. Even though we prepare the case for a potential trial, we are also always prepared to negotiate a settlement on our client’s behalf.
If You’ve Been Injured In A Motorcycle Accident Our Lawyers Can Help
There is nothing like riding a motorcycle - the feeling of freedom it brings. Sadly, even the most experienced motorcycle riders risk their lives every time they go out and through no fault of their own. Accidents are commonly caused by negligent drivers who aren’t paying attention to the road in front of them or others on the road.
Motorcycle accidents are commonly caused because another driver is:
Whatever the reason, it’s the motorcycle rider who frequently suffers the most.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, contact our Philadelphia personal injury lawyer now for your free consultation.
We Can Help You Get The Compensation You Need After A Bicycle Accident
It doesn’t matter how old you are, if you are a competitive cyclist, or if you were just out for a leisurely bike ride. The fact is that if you were injured in a bike accident, you could be owed significant compensation.
Bike accident lawsuits are filed against the person or party responsible for the accident which caused you harm. Examples of negligent parties include the driver of a car, the owner of a bike shop who performed faulty work on your bike, or the manufacturer of a bicycle part.
You should be able to focus on what is most important - healing. Let our legal team do the rest.
Pedestrians Deserve Legal Representation After An Accident - Call Our Lawyers Now
If you or a loved one were a pedestrian who was injured, you have the right to take legal action against the responsible party. While you may be comforted by the existence of auto insurance or health insurance, the reality is that you will still have significant out of pocket expenses and in many cases, insurance limits are reached in a matter of days or weeks.
Our attorneys understand how stressful and upsetting this time is. You’re suffering physically, emotionally, and mentally and taking legal action may seem like another stress you don’t need in your life. However, it could be the only way for you to fully recover from your losses.
Our goal is to ensure that our clients feel that they are fully supported during every step of the legal process. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have and provide regular updates on the status of your case. Call now to learn more.
Don’t Wait To Call Our Local Philadelphia Slip And Fall Attorneys
Slip and fall accidents are very common and unfortunately, many injured victims don't’ realize that they have the right to seek compensation after their injury or that negligence caused their accident.
Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Loose carpeting or floorboards.
- Broken handrails.
- Broken steps.
- Spilled liquids.
- Snow and ice.
- Broken sidewalks.
Under premises liability laws, property owners are responsible for discovering hazards like these and repairing them. Until a repair can be made, a warning sign must be placed clearly around the area to indicate the issue. Otherwise, they could become the defendant in a slip and fall lawsuit.
If you suspect that another person’s negligence caused you to slip and fall, call our Philadelphia personal injury lawyer today for your free case review.
Crime Victims Can Depend On Our Lawyers
Although it is certainly possible to take legal action against the person who committed the crime, often there are others whose negligence allowed the crime to take place.
For example, if a visitor is robbed and shot while using a parking garage and the parking garage owners did nothing to ensure the property was safe, well lit, and secure, they could be held reliable for the injury that was sustained.
If you suspect that another’s negligence may have allowed you to be harmed during a criminal act, our crime victim injury lawyers would be happy to review your case. Don’t wait - call now.
We Support The Victims Of Sexual Abuse
The civil lawsuit we guide our clients through is separate from any criminal charges that may be filed and is intended to provide our client with compensation. This compensation cannot change the past but it can be used to help build a brighter future.
Our attorneys understand how important it is for many sexual abuse victims to remain anonymous and we can help you take the legal action needed while keeping your identity private. Contact our sexual abuse attorneys today to learn more about the legal process and how we can help protect you and your loved ones.
