Practice Areas

How do I know if I need a personal injury attorney?

Knowing when it’s time to call a personal injury attorney can be difficult. If you’ve been hurt in an auto accident or suffered a serious injury through no fault of your own, you may have a personal injury claim. If possible, call us before you provide a statement to an insurance company or sign any waiver or lien; you could be signing your rights away. 

Your Philadelphia personal injury lawyer will talk to you about your injury and work to establish a clear understanding of the fault involved, determine your full losses, including medical bills, damages, and lost wages. Once the other party’s liability and the extent of the harm done are established, your attorney will be by your side the whole way, all the way to court, if necessary.

By partnering with an attorney who’s not afraid to fight for your rights, you’re making it clear to the defendant that you will do what it takes to get the compensation you deserve.  In many cases, this can result in a fair settlement before a trial occurs. Your lawyer will help you understand any offer and how it matches up with your case’s potential. In the end, we want the best outcome for you.

Personal Injury Compensation

Your personal injury attorneys will fight for your legal rights to get you an amount of compensation that is fair for the injury you’ve received and the impact it has on your life. This can include both:  

  • Actual or Compensatory Damages: These can include your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering compensation, and property costs, among others.  This money is meant to help alleviate the personal and financial strain your serious injury has left you dealing with.
  • Punitive or Exemplary 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. This is not only meant to redress the wrong that caused your injury, but to serve as a warning to others who may find themselves in the same position.

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, injury victims use their compensation to pay for the care they have or are still receiving and begin the process of regaining control of their life back from pain and financial hardship.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is my claim worth?

Every claim is different. Without evaluating your claim, it is impossible to provide a clear answer. However, the value of your claim will depend on many factors, such as the severity of your injuries, the duration of recovery, past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, the general impact that the injury has had on your life, how much pain you are in, and many other factors. At Anapol Wiess, we can review the details of your claim and provide you with a more accurate value.

How will being partially at fault for the accident affect my legal claim?

Pennsylvania personal injury law follows the rule known as the modified comparative negligence rule, which states that an injured party is not barred from pursuing a claim for compensation so long as they are equally or less at fault for causing their injuries than the party or parties they seek compensation from. However, under the rule, your financial recovery in your case may be reduced in proportion to the percentage of fault you bear for the accident and your injuries. As an example, if you are found to have been 25 percent responsible for the accident, you may only recover 75 percent of the losses you incurred due to your injuries.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations typically gives you only two years from the date that you were injured because of someone else’s fault to file a lawsuit against the liable party or parties. In certain circumstances, the statute of limitations may be paused, or “tolled,” so you may have a different deadline to file suit. But if you file your lawsuit after the limitations period has passed on your personal injury claim, the at-fault parties can file a motion to permanently dismiss your case, which may cause you to lose your right to seek financial recovery for your injuries. This makes it essential to speak to our attorneys to learn when you need to file a lawsuit to continue pursuing your claim for compensation.

When should I hire a lawyer?

You should hire a lawyer as soon as possible after you have been seriously injured by someone’s negligence. A lawyer can investigate what occurred, gather evidence to prove who is at fault, complete relevant insurance claims forms to make sure you get all the medical and wage loss benefits you are entitled to, and make sure that your rights are fully protected. At Anapol Weiss, we pride ourselves on taking care of these issues for our clients so that you can focus on their recovery. Remember, the responsible party has experienced insurance company professionals and lawyers working to protect their rights, you need someone on your side to protect your rights.

What is your fee?

At Anapol Weiss, we only get paid if we get a recovery for you. Our fee is “contingent” on obtaining a settlement or verdict in your case; this is commonly referred to as a “contingency fee.” In other words, we work for free throughout the duration of your case and only get paid if we are successful in getting a financial recovery for you.

Unlike many other professionals who get paid regardless of the results they produce, Anapol Weiss takes the risk of not getting paid unless we are successful in winning your case. Many of our clients have just had their lives turned upside down physically, emotionally, and financially and may never work again. Even if they could, many simply don’t have the financial resources to pay for top-quality legal representation. We understand that and are sensitive to our clients’ circumstances.

By handling cases on a contingency fee basis, we eliminate the financial barrier and hardship injured people would otherwise face if they had to pay an hourly rate for the substantial time involved in pursuing their cases. The specific percentage fee depends on the type of case but, if we do not get a verdict or settlement for you, you don’t pay us anything.
