How a Munley Law personal injury attorney can help you
After a serious accident or injury, you may have many questions. Do I need a lawyer? How do I file a lawsuit? Who is responsible for paying my medical bills? The Philadelphia personal injury lawyers at our law firm can help.
Do I need a Philadelphia injury lawyer?
As the victim of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for the costs associated with your injuries. Unfortunately, people who do not hire a lawyer to represent them rarely get the full amount that they’re entitled to. The insurance claims process can be complicated, the defendant may have aggressive legal representation of their own, and once you accept an offer of settlement, you waive your right to seek additional compensation – even if your condition becomes worse. An experienced Philadelphia injury attorney at Munley Law know how to prove liability, prove negligence, and pursue full, fair compensation.
What kinds of compensation can I receive?
The full amount of compensation you can receive will depend on your unique circumstances, including the full extent of your injuries and medical treatment. We work with experts to calculate not only your past and present losses, but also the costs associated with the ways in which your injuries will affect your life into the future. You may have long-lasting or even lifelong effects from the injuries you suffered. You may require ongoing care, suffer permanent disability, or be unable to perform the job you once did. Our personal injury lawyers can help you identify all responsible parties, calculate your losses, and recover damages for your:
- Past and future medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Disability or disfigurement
- Altered quality of life
- Pain and suffering
Our team of experienced, compassionate lawyers and legal staff will answer any questions you have, address your concerns, and keep you informed each step of the way.

Philadelphia Personal Injury FAQs
How do I know if I need an attorney?
If you were injured due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party, you might be forced to deal with pain, medical expenses, lost wages, and other miscellaneous costs. These costs can quickly add up and put a severe strain on your life and ability to care for yourself and your family. What some people don’t realize is that you do not have to shoulder this burden and suffer silently. By hiring an attorney who understands this type of law and your case, you can ensure that the people accountable for your suffering fairly compensate you for the damage they caused.
What’s more, many people do not realize that they cannot go through this process alone. The other person’s insurance company will fight to save themselves from financial liability and will actively work to diminish your injury claim. A personal injury lawyer can help protect you from pushy insurance adjusters, insurance representatives, and the other person’s attorneys, who are all seeking to reduce the amount of compensation that you can claim.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit in Philadelphia?
In the state of Pennsylvania, most personal injury cases have a statute of limitations of two years. However, it is to your benefit to speak with a personal injury lawyer as early as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin to help.
How long does a personal injury case take in Philadelphia?
Because each case is different, it is impossible to say for sure how long your case will take to resolve. A lawyer who claims to be able to settle your case in a fixed amount of time will either cut corners in the investigation, or settle for less compensation than you deserve in order to close your case quickly. Realistically, a personal injury case can take a year or more to resolve, depending upon the number of defendants, the extent of your injuries and medical treatment, and whether or not your case will go to trial in a Philadelphia court. After retaining a lawyer, you can receive updates on the status of your case and more informed estimates of how long each stage of the process will take.
How much does it cost to hire a Philadelphia personal injury attorney at Munley Law?
The personal injury attorneys at Munley Law work on a contingent fee basis. This means that we do not collect a fee unless we win your case. This way, anyone can afford to hire the best legal representation, regardless of wealth or income. You pay nothing up front or out of pocket, and our fee will never be greater than the amount paid to you. If for some reason we cannot achieve a settlement or verdict for you, you owe us nothing. That’s our no-fee promise.
