Philadelphia Car Accident Resource Center
Reiff & Bily is a nationally recognized Philadelphia-based car and motor vehicle accident law firm that aggressively represents clients who have been seriously injured or wrongfully killed in car accidents. Since 1979, our skilled car accident lawyers have successfully resolved tens of thousands of motor vehicle accident claims recovering hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients in compensatory damages, economic loss, and recovery of medical and rehabilitation costs. We understand that in a fraction of a second, a victim’s life can be changed forever, and we know what it takes to make you or a loved one whole again. One has every right to expect that their lawyers will diligently work to achieve a monetary recovery to compensate them for the lost value of their hopes and dreams.
Philadelphia car accidents are a leading cause of severe injury and wrongful death in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. According to an independent report released by All-State Insurance Company ranking the 200 largest cities in America to determine which cities have the safest drivers, Philadelphia ranks near the bottom - 188 out of 200.
Philadelphia drivers are 60.2% more likely to be involved in a motor vehicle accident when compared to the national average of drivers who will be involved in a motor vehicle collision.
The Philadelphia car accident lawyers of Reiff & Bily have over three decades of experience representing victims and their families who have sustained catastrophic injuries or wrongful death as a result of a car accident, or automobile defect. We are extremely knowledgeable about vehicle design factors, and even if it is a one-vehicle collision, we always explore the possibility that a vehicle design or manufacturer defect may have contributed to the accident.
In order to successfully prosecute a motor vehicle and car accident claim, the experienced Philadelphia auto accident attorneys of Reiff & Bily will conduct an extensive investigation in order to provide the foundation of pertinent facts necessary to successfully litigate and prove your case. Establishing liability in a car accident means that the other driver or someone other than you (perhaps the manufacturer) was responsible by their actions or inaction for causing the accident and resulting injuries or wrongful death. Perhaps there was a roadway defect, or a malfunctioning traffic signal device. The defendant may have been distracted by texting, speaking on a cell phone, or a wandering pet in the car. Street or roadway sign and lighting defects must be independently considered and explored. There is no such thing as an "Easy A" answer to any issue that may be presented in your case.
Liability is never automatic and developing the foundation and theme of a car accident case is often times more difficult than it appears and requires experience and skill that come with years of practice.
The Philadelphia car accident lawyers of Reiff and Bily will always complete a thorough, independent investigation in each case obtaining a copy of the police report, identifying witnesses, as well as obtaining written and recorded statements. We often obtain third party investigations of cell phone records and background studies on the defendant and may inquire into a potential Dram Shop action if we suspect an offending defendant was operating a vehicle while under the influence. Unlike many accident lawyers in Philadelphia who have talking heads on the air waves or billboards, and look for "easy A" solutions and a quick buck recovery, we are not a high volume car accident practice and take pride in our ability to tailor each specific case to our client’s needs similar to buying a suit made by a highly trained custom tailor rather than purchasing it off the rack from one of the discount stores.
Normally after a car accident, the insurance company for the other driver may try to contact you immediately and ask you to give a statement and try to sweet-talk you into accepting a small settlement, which may come back to prejudice your interests and haunt your future. Simply stated, we understand that chance favors the prepared mind and always offer a free, no obligation consultation to victims involved in car accidents. We always offer a no-recovery/no fee guarantee and work on a contingent fee based upon our success. We have been committed to consumer and automotive safety since 1979 and our record of success speaks for itself.
