When you are injured in an accident, your first priority is your health and well-being. Regardless of the severity of your injury, it is always best to be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible after any type of injury or accident. In some cases, you could suffer an injury that does not cause symptoms immediately after the injury. However, left untreated, the injury could turn life-threatening or cause additional injuries and damage.
Once the shock of the accident subsides and you have received medical treatment, you begin to realize the other damages caused by the accident. In addition to the physical pain and suffering caused by the injury, you may also suffer emotional, mental, and financial damages. Because the legal system cannot go back in time to stop the accident from occurring, the only way that it can compensate you for your losses is by holding the liable party accountable for negligent acts and awarding a monetary judgment for your damages.
Under Pennsylvania personal injury laws provide a legal means for seeking compensation from the parties who cause injuries to others. The laws cover a wide variety of accidents and situations that can result in injury to another person.

Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
The laws governing personal injury claims can be complex, and some cases involve complicated legal issues and technical questions. To receive money for your claim, you must meet all elements required by law to prove the other party is at fault for the accident. You must also prove that you suffered compensable damages because of the accident.
Our Erie personal injury attorneys can help you by:
- Investigating the accident to identify the liable parties;
- Secure and protect key evidence that provides liability and damages;
- Deal with the insurance company, its adjusters, and its attorneys for you;
- Work with your doctors to determine permanent damages and future losses;
- Retain experts, if needed, to establish fault and calculate future damages;
- Calculate the full value of your claim;
- Prepare a settlement demand package;
- Negotiate with the insurance company for a fair settlement amount; and,
- File a lawsuit if necessary to seek justice for you and your family.
The insurance company for the at-fault party will have a team of professionals working to protect its interest and limit the amount of money it must pay to settle your claim. The adjuster does NOT work for you — he works for the insurance company. You deserve a legal team working to protect your best interests. Our law firm is dedicated to serving accident victims and their families during the stressful and overwhelming time following a personal injury accident.
