If you have been harmed as a result of the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of another, you may want to bring a personal injury lawsuit. At Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers, our personal injury attorneys have a lot of experience in handling personal injury claims and lawsuits. We are prepared to fight your case up to and including in court. We are dedicated to fighting for justice and fair compensation for our injured clients.
Unlike criminal cases, personal injury cases are civil lawsuits based on “torts” or social wrongs in which a person or business entity is found to have acted below the standard of care for a specific situation. In 2001, tort cases (not all of which were personal injury) accounted for nearly 2/3 of the 12,000 civil suits that went to trial in state courts in the 75 largest counties in the United States.
Most personal injury cases settle out of court rather than proceeding to trial. However, preparation for trial is critical to obtaining a favorable settlement. Defendants and their insurance companies who know you aren’t willing to go to trial will take advantage of your reticence during settlement negotiations and will not offer you the maximum compensation that you deserve. Not all personal injury attorneys are comfortable going to trial, but we excel at both preparing for and actually trying cases if necessary. As a result, we are also formidable opponents at the settlement negotiation table.
The type of harm at issue in a personal injury claim can vary widely, ranging from pain and suffering due to a wrist fracture, to paralysis or death. Some types of personal injury matters handled by the Philadelphia Injury Lawyers occur in the context of:
- Car Accident
- Medical Malpractice
- Slip and Fall Cases
- Dog Bites
- Wrongful Deaths
- Traumautic Brain Injury
- Product Liability and more
