The Team at Munley Law Excel at Personal Injury Law
Our firm was founded by Robert W. Munley in 1959 and for over five decades our firm has been a national leader in personal injury law. Our attorneys helped to create many of the laws that protect innocent victims today. We have top credentials and have consistently been chosen among the Best Lawyers in America and have received top ratings from our peers. We are a family of lawyers and we work as a team on most of our accident cases. This is a big benefit to all of our personal injury clients as they receive the combined knowledge and experience of our entire team. And the proof is in the pudding: we have received some of the largest verdicts and settlements in the country, helping our clients to get the justice they deserve. The attorneys at Munley Law constantly strive to remain the best; we keep up to date on the latest technologies in trial work, we hire only the top experts in the nation and we continuously educate ourselves on updates in personal injury law. We regularly teach other lawyers how to present cases and we hold leadership positions in numerous associations such as the trucking law division of the American Association for Justice and the Pennsylvania Association for Justice. We handle all types of personal injury cases which include: truck accidents, auto accidents, bus accidents, car recall cases, wrongful death, medical malpractice, work injuries, product liability, premises liability and child abuse cases.
We Do Not Get Paid Unless We Win your Personal Injury Case
Most people avoid hiring a lawyer because they think they all charge by the hour and at astronomical rates. Actually, in personal injury cases, lawyers work on a contingent fee basis. What that means is the attorney only gets paid if he or she wins money damages for you – the client. The fee agreement is usually a percentage of the amount recovered. This makes it possible for anyone to hire only the best lawyer. It gives everyone access to the justice system and representation that is equal to the best that insurance companies, doctors and other defendants can hire.
Awards and Recognitions
Since 1959 our firm has successfully fought for justice and compensation for people like you.
