How to Interact with Insurance Adjusters After a Car Accident
If you or a loved one have been in a car accident, your main focus should be on caring for and recuperating from injuries and the trauma that has been endured. Insurance adjusters often prey upon victims’ vulnerability by trying to negotiate early settlements, and by getting the injury victim to make statements that can infringe upon how much you are truly entitled to. At this time, thinking about recovering compensation from insurance companies may seem stressful and the last thing that you want to worry about; a car accident lawyer can alleviate these stresses. You need an experienced car accident lawyer that has a proven track record.

What to do if you have been in a truck crash with chemical spills or hazardous materials
Tanker trucks transport the majority of U.S. shipments: they haul gasoline, diesel, specialty chemicals, food grade and dry bulk on a daily basis. With the increasing transportation of goods, the number of tanker truck accidents on our roads has also been on the rise. Tankers frequently haul hazardous and highly flammable materials, and a crash with these large, precarious vehicles could mean enduring serious burns, smoke inhalation injuries, or even death. Road surfaces can become extremely unsafe, air quality can be compromised, and fires and explosions can result from sudden hazardous waste disturbances.
If you or a loved one have been in a truck crash involving a hazardous materials spill, there may be multiple responsible parties, and the crash may require in-depth investigations. You will need a truck accident lawyer with a reputation, […]Read More

What is an Impairment Rating Evaluation?
Posted March 7th, 2023 by Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys.
If you or your loved one have been injured at work and are seeking workers’ compensation, you may be required to undergo an impairment rating evaluation to determine the extent of whole-body impairment caused by the workplace injury.
When an employer or insurance company requests an Impairment Rating Evaluation (IRE), it is to evaluate the total or partial disability of the injured worker so as to ensure the appropriate amount of disability pay is provided. Currently, Pennsylvania law requires an employer to pay total disability benefits for any employee at or above 35 percent disabled.
Unfortunately, many times an employer requesting an IRE is looking to reduce the number of benefits they are paying out by getting an evaluation that reports less than 35 percent disabled.
It is important that you or your loved one consult with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer if you receive a notice for an impairment rating evaluation. […]Read More
