Personal Injury in Philadelphia

Helping Injured Victims in Philadelphia and the Surrounding Areas

A personal injury case can arise when an individual is harmed in an accident in which another party is liable. These types of cases come in two forms: formal lawsuits and informal settlements. In both cases, the process starts with a private individual, the plaintiff, filing a complaint against a person, business, government agency, or corporation. The complaint includes the details of the accident and an allegation that the defendant is at fault for the resulting damages. However, most cases do not go to the courtroom.

The majority of personal injury disputes are settled before reaching a judge. Most often, the attorneys and insurers from both sides will work out a settlement that both parties approve and sign an agreement that no further action, such as a lawsuit, will ensue after the arrangement is seen to fruition. Mediation is also an option as a middle ground in some cases.

Personal injuries that are handled in this manner include, but are not limited to:

Specific injuries and damages vary greatly, even in similar lawsuits. Examples of harm that can make up a personal injury claim include:
