If injuries sustained in a Bristol, PA, accident disrupted your way of life, you might have a lot of questions: Should the person responsible for the accident pay my medical bills? How will I cover my living expenses if I cannot work during my recovery? Do I need to hire a personal injury lawyer? 

Getting reliable answers to these questions could make the difference between maximizing your compensation after a car accident or suffering financial trouble for years to come. Contact our experienced attorneys to learn what your rights are concerning your Pennsylvania personal injury claim. 

If another party caused your injuries, you can hold that party responsible. Investigating all the contributing factors of an accident is a complex process that requires extensive knowledge of Pennsylvania law. Please note the following examples of personal injury law practice areas.

Vehicle accidents 

With US 422, US 13, I-95, and other busy roads crisscrossing through Bristol, it is no wonder that plenty of wrecks happen. With over 60 years of experience in personal injury law, Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys’s car and truck accident lawyers are well-equipped to handle your car, bus, truck, or motorcycle accident. 

Pennsylvania is a no-fault state, meaning your PIP insurance should pay for your medical bills regardless of who caused the accident. The system is not perfect. You might discover that an insurance company refuses to pay your claim or offers you less than you should receive. If your injuries are severe, your medical bills might skyrocket beyond your insurance coverage limits. A good practice is to consult a lawyer after any significant accident. 

Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys firm offers free personal injury consultations for Bucks County residents. You can even call us from the scene of the accident for quick answers to your questions. 

Premises liability 

In Buckley County, property owners must uphold building codes and state regulations. An unsafe property might lead to injuries. If hazardous conditions on their property lead to an accident, the injured party can file a personal injury claim. Premises liability claims include:

  • Asbestos exposure
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Chlorine gas poisoning
  • Dog bites
  • Drowning
  • Electrocutions
  • Lead poisoning
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Workplace injuries

Medical malpractice

Bristol doctors and nurses receive training to ensure they can meet the needs of their patients. If a medical professional performs inadequately, his or her mistakes could be fatal. A caring lawyer familiar with Pennsylvania health laws and regulations can let you know if your medical treatment was properly handled. 

Examples of medical negligence and malpractice include: 

  • Failure to order proper testing, interpret results correctly, or give appropriate attention to results
  • Botched or unnecessary surgeries, including wrong-site surgery and surgical errors
  • Incorrect prescriptions or medication dosage mistakes
  • Premature discharge, poor follow-up, or poor aftercare 
  • Failure to consult or update medical records
  • Failure to recognize symptoms

Nursing home neglect and abuse

Professional standards apply to nursing home caregivers too. Nursing home patients are particularly vulnerable because they may require special attention and gentle handling due to age or failing health. 

Whether a Bristol caretaker intentionally or unintentionally inflicts physical pain or mental distress on a resident, this also constitutes mistreatment. According to a study, low pay rates, lack of training, and insufficient personnel to cover shifts can lead to elder abuse and neglect

The possible types of abuse are:

  • Physical
  • Mental / Emotional
  • Sexual
  • Financial 

Product liability 

Other times, a product, rather than a person, causes injury. When you buy an item, you rightly assume that it is safe when used for its intended purpose. Faulty product designs or defective units, though, have caused injury or death. 

Of course, some products are inherently hazardous to use. In those cases, manufacturers must warn consumers of the risk. If you or a loved one has been hurt because of a manufacturer’s negligence, a capable product liability lawyer can seek compensation from accountable parties. 

Pennsylvania is a strict liability state. If you have evidence of a product’s defect and the injury it caused you, our attorneys can pursue justice for you. We do not charge any fee unless we win your case, so do not hesitate to contact us for a free case review today.

    I contacted [Attorney] about a car accident I had, and I met with her and she was very polite and very kind, and told me she was gonna help me through this experience that I’d never gone through before. She and her team answered my calls, my questions, and my concerns for everything and anything I needed. Also she and her team made me feel like a part of their family and I thank them very much for their experience. David, Car Accident Client

    I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm. They also handle all types of car and truck accidents, workers compensation and social security disability. I think they are the best in town. Guest of Bing
