What type of car accident are you dealing with?
Car accidents can cover a wide range. Some of the most common – and most serious – types of car crashes we regularly deal with at our law firm include:
Rear-End Accidents: Were you rear-ended by a distracted driver or someone who fell asleep at the wheel? Liability may not be disputed in your case, but the insurance companies love to downplay injuries to reduce your claim. The truth is that even low-speed crashes can cause life-altering injuries. We can help you recover.
Head-On Collisions: Was your crash caused by someone driving the wrong way? These cases can get complex quickly if witnesses disagree on what happened or the evidence from the crash scene is inconclusive. Insurance companies fight hard to reduce or deny these claims because they can be so costly. We fight back.
Intersection Accidents: If you were T-boned or involved in another type of crash at an intersection, you need an attorney who can investigate and sort out what happened. Our attorneys interview witnesses, review physical evidence and cross-reference seemingly contradictory accounts to build strong cases for crash victims.
Ridesharing Accidents: Were you hit by an Uber or Lyft driver, or injured as a passenger? The laws surrounding rideshare cases are complex, and you shouldn’t go up against the insurance companies alone. We know how to sort out your situation and build a strong legal strategy.
Uninsured/ Underinsured Accidents: Pennsylvania law requires all motorists to carry insurance, but some break the law. If you were hit by a driver who didn’t have insurance, or didn’t have enough, you may think you’re out of options. We have extensive experience handling these types of claims and finding a viable way forward.
Hit-and-Run Accidents: Leaving the scene of a crash is a crime, but some drivers break the law. Whether the hit-and-run driver is found or not, you have legal rights, and we can help protect them. We know how to pursue uninsured motorist claims and any other legal options in the wake of a hit-and-run.
Fatal Car Accidents: Sadly, some car accident victims don’t walk away. If you lost a loved one in a car crash, we would be honored to meet with you and explain your legal rights and options. We’re proud to stand up for families and hold negligent drivers accountable to provide some degree of compensation and closure.
Every accident is different, and your legal rights and options depend on the specific circumstances surrounding your crash. That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an experienced attorney about all the legal options available to you concerning your specific accident.

The clock is running. In most cases, you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action after your car accident. This deadline is known as the “statute of limitations.” In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for taking legal action or filing a car accident lawsuit is two years from the date of your accident. That might seem like a long time. But building a successful legal case often takes a tremendous amount of time and work.
We can help you every step of the way. We know how to analyze accident reports. We frequently conduct our own independent investigations. We also often consult with accident reconstruction experts if necessary. We then often present our findings to the insurance company for the at-fault driver. Most agree to negotiate with us. If not, we’re prepared to take them to court on your behalf.
