WARNING: DO NOT TALK WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES UNTIL YOU HAVE CONSULTED AN EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY!
When you or a loved one are injured or in an accident, life becomes difficult and complicated. Receiving treatment and working toward recovery places strain on many aspects of life – finances, relationships, emotions, physical capabilities and more. Reach out to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney to lighten or relieve some of these burdens.
An accident attorney specializing in personal injury legal help can guide you through the process to recover compensation for damages if you are injured or harmed by the carelessness or negligence of another person or organization. Damages may be for physical or mental injuries and can include past, present, and future suffering, as well as lost wages, medical expenses, and lost earning potential.
Personal injury is a legal term defining an injury to the body, mind or emotions. Some of the most common personal injuries requiring personal injury legal help through a personal injury attorney include: auto accident – like car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents - slip and fall accidents, and medical malpractice.
Car Accidents, Motorcycle Accidents, Truck Accidents
Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and truck accidents make up more than 125,000 reportable traffic crashes in Pennsylvania, according to the annual Pennsylvania Crash Facts and Statistics report. If you or a loved one are in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, contacting an experienced car, truck or motorcycle accident attorney is very important to achieve the best outcome for your case.
The insight and perspective of Lepley, Engelman, Yaw and Wilk, LLC’s personal injury attorneys have won substantial settlements for their auto accident, truck accident, and motorcycle accident clients – like a $5.44 million settlement for a young man rear-ended in a water tank truck accident.
Medical malpractice occurs when a physician injures a patient with a treatment or lack of treatment. Medical malpractice is defined as, “any act or omission by a physician during treatment of a patient that deviates from accepted norms of practice in the medical community and causes an injury to the patient.”
Medical professionals receive special access into patients’ lives. Patients trust physicians, disclosing sensitive information with the belief that their best interest will be pursued. When physicians betray their patients intentionally or accidentally, the advice of a credible, trustworthy medical malpractice attorney is invaluable.
More than 20,000 medical malpractice payment reports were made in the US from 2019-2020, according to The National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB). More than 2,100 of these reports were made in Pennsylvania.
Medical malpractice attorneys in Pennsylvania earned their clients the second highest payouts in the nation, with $369,034,250 awarded in 2019 - an increase of 8 percent since 2017.
The highest awards based on medical malpractice allegation focused on diagnosis (34 percent), followed by surgery (22 percent), treatment (21 percent), and obstetrics (10 percent). Payment amounts were generally higher depending on the severity of the outcome.
If you believe you could be the victim of medical malpractice, contact the medical malpractice attorneys at Lepley, Engelman, Yaw and Wilk, LLC. The pain and suffering caused by your medical malpractice injury and resulting affects should be recompensed.
The statistics above prove that Pennsylvania’s legal system highly values the well-being of Commonwealth residents. Ensure your medical malpractice case is well-represented by a knowledgeable and experienced medical malpractice attorney to achieve the best results for your case.
