What is a personal injury?

A personal injury is a serious harmful act to a person or persons as a result of someone else’s negligence. Personal injury law can involve  many types of accidents including truck accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, premises liability, workplace injuries and accidents, spinal cord and brain injuries, pharmaceutical negligence, amputations, wrongful death, failure to diagnose cancer, birth and neonatal injuries, toxic torts, and child abuse.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or you have been injured at work and wish to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney, Munley Law will evaluate your case at no cost to you or your family and help you to determine whether you have a personal injury case.

Who will pay my medical bills?

After an injury or an accident, most victims worry about how they will pay their medical bills. Depending on your case, there are different answers to this question. Your auto or health insurance may cover your medical costs, or you may have to rely on the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. In any case, the best course of action is to speak with an attorney at our firm to discuss your options. Our initial consultations are free, so you can feel comfortable coming to speak with a personal injury lawyer at our firm about your concerns.

When is the right time to contact a personal injury lawyer?

Munley Law represents injured persons and their families in personal injury and wrongful death cases, providing legal representation in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or involved in an accident at work,  you should contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. The statue of limitations, which refers to the time period that legal action is allowed, may begin at the time of the injury in personal injury cases. An experienced lawyer at Munley Law can help you decide if  your claim is valid.

How much is my case worth?

First and foremost, if a lawyer or law firm gives you a dollar value for your case right away, don’t trust it. They are likely making unrealistic promises, or may be persuading you to settle for less than your case is actually worth in order to settle it quickly. It is impossible to know what kind of settlement to expect before investigating the extent of any injuries sustained, medical costs, lost wages, future expenses, and pain and suffering. This is why it is important that you hire a lawyer who will complete a thorough investigation and who will never advise you to accept a settlement for less than you truly deserve. Each case is unique, so the best way to learn about what compensation you may be entitled to is to speak with an attorney at Munley Law for free.

What is a “contingent fee”?

Some law firms, including Munley Law, operate on a contingent fee basis. This means that we only charge a fee if we win your case. In other words, our getting paid is “contingent” upon our success. The fee is a percentage of the total amount of the settlement or verdict we obtain for you. At Munley Law, that fee will never be greater than the sum paid to you. We pay all upfront costs so that you never have to pay anything out of your own pocket.  If for some reason we can’t get you the compensation you need, you owe us nothing.

Without Caroline Munley, I’m not sure where I would be. After cutting off the tip of my finger at my construction job, I was worried that my career would be at risk. But Ms. Munley reassured me that filing a workers comp claim doesn’t mean I would lose my job. She was with me every step of the way and helped me get back on my feet again. Now I’m back on the job and it’s all thanks to her help! Maggie, a Workers’ Compensation Client

Chris Munley promised results, and that’s what I got. He was very compassionate and he answered every question I had about my personal injury case. When we couldn’t settle with the insurance company out of court, he was a fighter in the courtroom. Needless to say, we won and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Patrick, a Personal Injury Client

Marion not only is an accomplished lawyer who gets great results, but also she brings genuine compassion and zealous advocacy to each person she represents. Our firms have worked together on important cases and I look forward to future opportunities to work together. Rena Leizerman
