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 much does it cost to hire a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer 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.
