How Our Accident And Injury Lawyers Can Help You

However, Lancaster is also booming with commerce and tourism, which increases the risk of workplace injuries, pedestrian accidents, and other incidents.

This is why accident victims need a legal team they can count on. At Munley Law, we help injury victims in Lancaster by:

  • Investigating the cause of the accident
  • Establishing negligence
  • Collecting evidence
  • Calculating the value of your claim
  • Handling negotiations with the insurance companies

What Is a Personal Injury?

The American Bar Association defines personal injury as harm to oneself or one’s property caused by someone else’s action or failure to act.

Under tort law, personal injury victims can recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and reduced earning capacity.

However, in Pennsylvania, injured people only have two years from the accident date to recover compensation. If you do not file within the statute of limitations, you risk missing out on the compensation you are entitled to.

Types of Lancaster Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury law encompasses a variety of claims which can be made. They include the following.

Car Accidents

In 2022 alone, Lancaster County had 5,571 motor vehicle accidents, resulting in 52 fatalities. With busy roadways, residents and visitors must be prepared for heavy traffic, construction, and the increased potential for collisions.

At Munley Law, we help car accident victims file personal injury claims with their insurance company or sue the negligent party to seek maximum compensation for their injuries.

We help auto accident victims secure compensation for medical care, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. If you’ve been hurt on Lancaster County roads, we can guide you through the legal process.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can lead to catastrophic consequences for victims and their families. The size of a semi-truck against a small passenger vehicle can lead to severe injuries and even death.

However, these accident claims also put innocent drivers against large trucking companies and their insurance providers, leading to lengthy legal battles and a lot of stress.

Our award-winning legal team knows how complicated a truck accident can be and how financially and physically overwhelming these claims can be. At Munley Law, we have a track record of success in taking on large trucking corporations in Pennsylvania, and we will put that experience to work for you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Unlike car accidents, motorcycle accidents tend to peak seasonally, with the summer months seeing the highest rate of accidents and fatalities. However, they can happen at any time, especially on busy roadways.

Unfortunately, motorcycle riders who are involved in an accident are far more likely to experience severe injury and fatality compared to those in standard passenger vehicles. From improper lane use to blind spots, motorcyclists must be mindful of the driving practices of other road users.

Munley Law has extensive experience representing injured motorcycle riders in Lancaster and can help you secure a fair settlement for your injuries and losses.

Workers’ Compensation

When you’ve been hurt at work, you may be asking yourself, Who’s responsible for paying for my medical care? How will I support my family? What if I can’t go back to work?

This is an all-too-real reality for many injured workers in and around Lancaster County. Under the law, most employers must provide workers’ compensation insurance for both part-time and full-time employees in Lancaster County.

This insurance is meant to cover medical expenses and lost wages if you suffer a work-related injury or suffer from a work-related illness.

Unfortunately, many employers try to minimize an employee’s compensation by saying the employee is at fault for the accident or the illness was unrelated to the job.

This is why our lawyers help you file your workers’ compensation claim and also handle denied claims to prove that your employer put you in an unsafe situation.

Bicycle Accidents

Riding a bicycle is an economical and healthy way to get to and from your destinations in Lancaster County. Unfortunately, heavy traffic patterns, busy intersections, and congested country roads make cycling incredibly dangerous.

Some of the most common bicycle accidents we see include:

  • Intersection accidents
  • Left turn accidents
  • Open door incidents
  • Blind spot accidents

These accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, neck and back injuries, internal bleeding, and, in some cases, death.

Medical Malpractice

When you are sick or injured, you hope that the medical professionals providing you care will act appropriately to provide you with the best treatment. Unfortunately, it costs patients when doctors, nurses, or surgeons cut corners.

At Munley Law, we handle a variety of Lancaster, PA, medical malpractice cases including:

  • Hospital negligence
  • Wrongful death
  • Surgical error
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Birth injury, including Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy

Our superior service has secured millions of dollars for medical negligence victims and can do the same for you during this challenging time.

Product Liability

When you spend money on a product, be it a common consumer good, a prescription drug, or another item, you expect it to be safe for use or consumption. But when a defective product causes you harm, you have a right to hold the at-fault parties accountable.

Common product liability claims we handle include:

  • Defective Vehicles/ Recalled Auto Parts
  • Defective Medical Devices
  • Dangerous or Defective Drugs
  • Defective Batteries and Electronics
  • Defective Machinery
  • Defective Toys and Children’s Products

If a defective product has harmed you or a loved one, Munley Law can help.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims can be hard on the family of the deceased as they are not expected. And while you try to cope with the loss of a loved one, you must also navigate a legal minefield to hold the negligent parties accountable.

Our team of lawyers will help you and your family during the entire process, from gathering medical records to establishing that a duty of care was breached to standing by your side for a jury verdict if needed.

Wrongful death lawsuits are delicate and require personalized attention to bring forth justice for your loved one.

Our team helps families recover losses for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of companionship and consortium, pain and suffering, and funeral and burial costs.

Premises Liability

Whether you are a guest on someone’s property, a customer at a business, or walking on public property, you have a right to assume the area is safe from harm. But when you are put in unnecessary harm because of the property’s dangerous conditions, you are entitled to fair compensation for your injuries.

We help victims of premises liability claims recover compensation for:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Negligent security

Damages Available for Injury-Related Losses

Many people think they can only recover damages for medical bills and lost wages for personal injury claims. However, depending on the case, you may be entitled to other damages.

In general, you may be entitled to two types of damages in a personal injury case: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are those losses with a specific, quantifiable amount. These include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Property damage

Non-economic damages are those losses that may not have a price tag but are nonetheless a loss. They include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death

In some cases, if the at-fault party acted grossly negligent, you may also be able to collect punitive damages. These damages are intended to punish the at-fault party and encourage them not to commit the same behavior again.

The severity of your injuries will ultimately determine how much compensation you may recover. It is best to consult with an experienced Lancaster personal injury attorney immediately.

Work with an Experienced Lancaster Personal Injury Attorney

Pennsylvania car accident lawyers Caroline Munley and Marion MunleyThough you never have to hire a personal injury lawyer when claiming the insurance company or if you sue the liable party, there are benefits to doing so.

Most commonly, injury victims do not feel they can afford to undergo a legal battle as they must return to work or find another way to compensate for the economic losses they endured. This leads to victims accepting unfair settlements when they could have recovered more compensation.

Secondly, many victims think they cannot afford legal representation—the reality is you can’t afford to be without it. Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means you pay nothing upfront and only if a settlement or verdict is won on your behalf. From there, you will pay a percentage of your winnings.

Lastly, working with a lawyer gives you a trusted confidante who can explain the process and what to expect.

Getting hurt can feel isolating–but getting justice doesn’t have to be.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Personal Injury Lawyer

When choosing a personal injury lawyer for your claim, there are certain factors you should consider.

The first is finding a law firm with local values and connections. When you work with a team with roots in your neighborhood, you can rest assured knowing you have someone on your side who knows the law and the landscape. These local connections are crucial to a successful claim, from finding accident recreation specialists to working with medical professionals.

Second, you want a top litigation team. Not all law firms are created equal in the courtroom. You want someone with a standout track record who isn’t afraid to fight for you. Check out the law firm’s testimonials to see what other clients have said.

Lastly, you want to know that while you focus on recovery, your case is handled with the utmost care. Some clients want to be fully engrained in the legal process, while others want to move on quickly. Forming an attorney-client relationship with the right legal team will give you the peace of mind to move forward. During an initial consultation, you can establish just how involved you want to be in your case.
