Do I Need an Injury Attorney for My Claim?

A significant accident or injury caused by someone’s negligence can leave you facing unexpected consequences. In addition to physical pain from your injuries, you may have astronomical medical bills. You may require long-term treatment and are unable to return to your job. You may be facing an uncertain future.

Dealing with the insurance company is never an easy process. Not only do you have to understand liability laws in Pennsylvania, but the insurance adjuster will do everything in their power to settle your claim with the least amount possible. In addition, the insurance company never considers any future expenses you may have, such as ongoing medical treatment or loss of earning capacity. Therefore, the only way to get the maximum amount of compensation you need to recover from your injury is by filing a lawsuit.

As the injured victim of a negligent act, you have the right to seek compensation for your suffering. The lawyers at Munley Law Attorneys can help you retrieve funds to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, therapy, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to get you the best settlement possible. If we cannot reach a compromise, we are not afraid to fight for you in court if your case goes to trial. Let us handle the phone calls, paperwork, and legal process so that you can recover with peace of mind.

A Car Wreck Client

“You can put your trust into Chris Munley. A couple of years ago I got into a car crash and didn’t think I would recover financially. The insurance company had denied my claim and I thought that was that. But thanks to Mr. Munley, I got the money I needed from the insurance company and I was able to get on with my life. Thank you again, Mr. Munley.”

“My car accident last year kept me out of work for over a month. I was afraid of losing my job, the medical bills were piling up and the insurance company would not return my calls. I made the right decision after calling Caroline Munley. She fought the insurance company and helped me get back on my feet. I wholeheartedly endorse her.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases in Allentown

Q: Where is Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys’s Allentown Office Located?

A: Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys has an office at 1275 Glenlivet Drive, Suite 100-599, Allentown, PA 18106. The office is by appointment only; however, if you wish to meet us somewhere else, we are more than happy to travel to you.

Q: How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Claim?

A: There are four elements claims will need to meet in order for a successful claim:

  • The negligent party had a duty to protect the injured victim from harm. For example, a business has a duty to keep its premises safe for its employees and customers.
  • The negligent party had breached that duty of care. The business in the example above did not clear the sidewalk after a snowstorm.
  • Because of the breach, the victim received an injury. While walking into the business, a client slipped on a patch of black ice and fell, hitting their head against the sidewalk. They received a concussion and a broken leg.
  • The injury resulted in damages. Damages include any medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

If your claim can meet all four of these elements, then you have a personal injury claim.

  • You suffered a major injury
  • It is unclear who is at fault for the accident
  • The insurance company has delayed payment or denied your claim
  • The insurance company offers a settlement this doesn’t cover your expenses
  • You have questions about your rights or about the accident

Q: How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Allentown?

Q: How Long Will My Case Take?
