Motor Vehicle Accidents

Pennsylvania residents rely on a variety of motor vehicles for their transportation needs. Regardless of whether the motor vehicle is a car, truck, or motorcycle, when there is an accident, there are likely to be injuries which may result in overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, and a diminished quality of life. When faced with life-changing injuries from a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may want to explore your legal options.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Pedestrians commonly walk along or on someone else’s property with the reasonable belief that they are safe. If there is a hazard present, a passer-by may become the victim of a slip/trip and fall accident. If you are injured on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim. An injured person may be able to receive compensation for the injuries and losses sustained as a result of such an accident.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction is consistently ranked one of the most dangerous occupations in which a person may be employed. Although individuals employed in the construction industry may be exposed to hazards, safety requirements are in place to avoid injuries and protect everyone involved.  Unfortunately, these safety requirements are often disregarded by the employers of the injured workers.  When this happens, construction site accidents occur and can result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.

Product Liability

Each year, dangerous or defective products are the cause of thousands of injuries in the United States. While companies have the responsibility to ensure that their products are not dangerous to consumers, sometimes something can go wrong in the manufacturing process. This can result in strict liability on the part of the manufacturer when a consumer becomes seriously injured from the use of the defective product.

Wrongful Death

Undoubtedly, the death of a loved one is devastating to any family. If the death was due to someone else’s negligence, the avoidable tragedy is often amplified. Fatal accidents can result from a number of different situations, ranging from motor vehicle accidents to construction site accidents. If someone you love fell victim to a fatal accident, it is important for their loved ones to work with a dedicated and compassionate legal team to obtain compensation for wrongful death.
