Anapol Weiss’s Personal Injury Practice Areas

Our injury lawyers in Philadelphia, PA, have an extensive history of successfully representing clients in all types of personal injury matters. Examples of the kinds of personal injury cases we can assist you with include:

  • Car accidents: We routinely help clients injured in car accidents that arise out of all kinds of negligence behind the wheel, including distracted driving, drunk driving, careless driving, reckless driving, aggressive driving, defective auto parts, and more.
  • Truck accidents: Our firm assists clients in complex claims arising out of commercial truck accidents. We identify and seek compensation from all potential defendants, including the truck driver, trucking company, owners of trucks and trailers, negligent manufacturers, and other parties.
  • Rideshare accidents: Accidents involving rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft present complicated questions about insurance coverage, but our injury lawyers in Philadelphia, PA, are ready to rise to this challenge and fight for the full amount of compensation you deserve.
  • Motor vehicle accidents: Our firm’s extensive experience handling traffic accident claims encompasses all types of motor vehicle collisions, including motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and more.
  • Slip and falls: Anapol Weiss fights for victims who sustain significant fall injuries, indoors or outdoors, on properties across Philadelphia.
  • Dog bites: When a dog bite causes severe injuries, our attorneys are here to help you identify possible sources of coverage and move forward with claims for financial compensation against the dog’s owner or other relevant parties.
  • Premises liability: We handle injury claims against residential property owners, commercial property owners, and business tenants whose negligence allows unsafe conditions to put guests and visitors at risk.
  • Drowning: Homeowners, hotels, apartment complexes, and other property owners who fail to take appropriate precautions may be held liable for drowning accidents in pools and spas.
  • Electrocution: An electrocution accident could cause burns, damage to internal tissues, and even cardiac complications. If this accident results from the negligence of an employer, the manufacturer of a defective product, or another party, Anapol Weiss may be able to help you pursue compensation through a workers’ compensation or personal injury claim.
  • Heavy machinery accidents: Most heavy machinery accidents occur on the job or at construction sites or manufacturing facilities. Knowledgeable injury lawyers in Philadelphia, PA, can assist with workers’ comp claims for benefits through your employer’s insurer and determine if the potential exists for third-party claims against other entities, such as negligent machinery manufacturers.
  • Construction accidents: Serious injuries sustained on construction sites include falls, electrocutions, crushing injuries, being struck by objects or equipment, and being caught in or caught between equipment parts. As with other work injuries, we can help seek workers’ comp benefits as well as any third-party claims for compensation.
  • Work injuries: From major accidents to repetitive motion injuries, the source of work injuries varies. You can count on Anapol Weiss to advocate for you within the Pennsylvania workers’ comp system and represent you in any third-party claims you may be eligible to pursue.
  • Asbestos: Exposure to asbestos can lead to serious health conditions like mesothelioma, a form of cancer. We can seek compensation for Philadelphia residents and workers harmed by asbestos exposure.
  • Chemical exposure: Exposure to chemicals, whether through skin contact, inhalation, or other forms, can cause both acute and long-term health issues. We assist clients in claims involving employers, product manufacturers, and other negligent parties.
  • Medical malpractice: Care by any healthcare provider that falls below the accepted standard of care and leads to significant injury or illness may give rise to medical malpractice lawsuits. Our attorneys don’t shy away from suing negligent doctors, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, hospitals, and other defendants in the healthcare field.
  • Birth injuries: When healthcare providers involved in pregnancy care or labor and delivery deviate from the standard of care established by the medical community, their negligence can seriously harm the baby. Our attorneys can assist your family with claims involving brachial plexus injuries, brain hypoxia, cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, fetal distress, kernicterus, severe jaundice, shoulder dystocia, and more.
  • Nursing home neglect: A particularly concerning area of medical malpractice and negligence is nursing home neglect due to nursing home residents’ vulnerability and dependence on their caretakers. We hold both nursing homes and their staff accountable for the harm that results from abuse and neglect.
  • Product liability: Injuries due to defectively designed or manufactured products can be devastating. Anapol Weiss fights for injured consumers, workers, motorists, and patients harmed by dangerous products.
  • Amputations: Any accident, incident, or illness that leads to the severing of a limb or body part or requires medical intervention in the form of surgical amputation can be life-changing. When any party’s negligence contributes to limb loss and amputation, our attorneys are prepared to seek maximum compensation for victims.
  • Burn injuries: Serious burns have long-term consequences on your life. Our attorneys assist burn victims injured in car accidents, work-related injuries, electrocution accidents, and other types of harm related to negligence.
  • Concussion injuries: Concussions can occur when either a physical blow to the head or a sudden jolt causes rapid back-and-forth movements of the brain. These mild traumatic brain injuries can still have significant effects. When concussions result from any form of negligence, including in motor vehicle accidents, falls, and work injuries, we can seek compensation for you.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: More types of severe traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, can cause devastating deficits in physical, cognitive, psychological, sensory, and social functioning. These serious injuries can require a great deal of medical intervention and leave victims with complex needs, so it’s especially important to recover the full amount of compensation you could be entitled to in a personal injury claim.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries can cause permanent paralysis, whether partial or complete. They may result from any kind of serious accident and can give rise to considerable losses. We can help you seek maximum compensation for these losses.
  • Catastrophic injuries: When an accident arising out of negligence causes any kind of severe, life-changing injuries that require extensive medical intervention, representation from experienced injury lawyers in Philadelphia, PA, is critical. These cases are complex, especially when it comes to the documentation of your damages, including projected future medical costs and your loss of earning capacity.
  • Class actions: Class action claims, which involve a large group (or “class”) of individuals, sometimes but not always involve personal injury matters. Our attorneys assist clients with class actions arising out of physical injuries as well as those related to other types of losses.
  • Mass torts: Like class action claims, mass torts involve large groups of plaintiffs. However, these legal matters are different because in mass tort cases, your lawsuit is still an individual claim with compensation to be awarded based on your unique damages. Anapol Weiss is well-known for our tireless efforts on behalf of plaintiffs in mass tort claims, including Camp Lejeune lawsuits.
  • Wrongful death: For any accident arising out of negligence that leads to fatal injuries, bereaved family members may have the option to pursue a wrongful death claim. We take very seriously our responsibilities to families who have lost loved ones and fight to get them answers, accountability, and financial compensation for their loss.

We can also assist injury victims and policyholders whose insurance companies have let them down in pursuing Bad Faith Insurance lawsuits when the company has violated its duties regarding claims investigation and handling.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

Knowing when it’s time to call a personal injury attorney can be difficult. You don’t want to have to go through the legal process, just like you don’t want to have to cope with the consequences of serious injuries. If you are hurt, though, the personal injury claims process provides your chance to pursue financial compensation for your losses.

Anyone whose significant injuries in Philadelphia may provide grounds for a personal injury claim should take the time to speak with knowledgeable Philadelphia personal injury attorneys about their rights and legal options. A consultation shouldn’t cost you anything. It’s best to consult a lawyer about a personal injury matter promptly. If possible, do so before you provide a statement to an insurance company or sign any waiver or lien. Without experienced legal guidance, you could be unintentionally signing your rights away.

Types of Personal Injury Compensation in Philadelphia

When you receive damages, either as the result of a successful lawsuit or through a settlement, the money is paid to you. At this point, you can use your compensation as you need to: paying for the medical care you have received or are still receiving, paying money you may owe due to the financial hardship you have been through, saving for future expenses, and otherwise taking steps to begin regaining control of your life.

Your Philadelphia personal injury attorneys will fight to get you compensation for the full impact the injury has had on your life, including compensatory damages and, in some instances, punitive damages.

Compensatory Damages

Compensatory damages encompass all damages meant to compensate you for your harms and losses arising out of the accident. This money is meant to help alleviate the personal and financial strain your serious injury has caused you.

Sometimes called actual damages, compensatory damages are the kinds of compensation you will generally seek in a personal injury claim.

Examples of possible compensatory damages include:

  • Medical expenses you have already incurred, such as hospital bills, expenses for specialist visits, rehabilitation costs, and medication costs
  • Any projected future medical expenses for injuries that have long-term implications
  • Lost wages during the time you are too badly hurt to work or are recovering from your injuries and medical interventions
  • Loss of future earning capacity if your injuries leave you disabled on a permanent or long-term basis
  • Costs of hiring outside help to perform tasks, like household chores and childcare duties, that you can no longer perform yourself due to your injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life or enjoyment of life
  • Permanent disfigurement due to your injuries
  • In wrongful death claims, funeral and burial expenses and the loss of the deceased loved one’s love, affection, support, guidance, companionship, and consortium

Your attorney can assess the full extent of your unique damages and document all of your losses.

Punitive Damages

If the defendant acted in a malicious or egregious manner, knowing an injury was more likely to occur, punitive damages may also be awarded by a jury or judge. Also known asexemplary damages, punitive damages awards are not only meant to redress the wrong that caused your injury but also to serve as a warning to others who may find themselves in similar positions as the defendant in your claim. Not all personal injury claims will result in punitive damages, and you won’t receive punitive damages if your case settles out of court.
