Getting Help When You Need It

December 3, 2013

While driving down the street or going to work, unexpected events may affect your day — and your life — in ways you could not have imagined.

Serious accidents make headlines each day. For example, on September 19, after an Eagles game in Philadelphia, a Ford Escape carrying six people was struck by a Jeep Grand Cherokee as the Ford navigated a U-turn on Pattison. In the crash that followed, all six occupants of the Ford were injured, two critically. The 25-year-old driver of the Jeep suffered minor cuts and was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).

The victims of this drunk driving accident likely never thought going to a football game would leave them with lifelong disabilities. But in fact, the two critically injured passengers suffered head injuries that could lead to permanent brain damage.

Whether you were injured on the jobsite or after work, obtain qualified legal help with your claim. An accident attorney can assist you in the following ways:

*        In the days following a serious accident, a skilled attorney ensures your legal claim is preserved while you focus on recovery. Your lawyer gathers evidence, documentation and witness testimony about your accident.

*        For a serious accident, insurance companies become quickly involved. An experienced attorney works through your case via negotiations or trial to recover monies appropriate to the extent of your injury and the level of negligence involved.

*        Experienced legal counsel protects your rights and gives you the support and information you need during the difficult time following your accident.

If you are seriously injured in Delaware County or Philadelphia, get medical help and talk to a law firm about your legal options.
