Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers for Accident Victims
Regardless of how your injury occurred, the bottom line is that severe injuries cause long-term problems. You may quickly identify some of the problems you will face, but may not foresee all of the difficulties you will experience. For example, you may not immediately realize how costly your long-term care plan and future medical expenses will be. It is critically important to calculate the true financial, physical, and emotional impacts of your injuries, not only for your own health and recovery, but also to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your losses. If you have suffered a serious injury in Pennsylvania, don’t let the insurance claims adjustor or responsible party dismiss your case or tell you that the current situation is “the best you can hope for.” Only an experienced personal injury attorney can assess your legal options.
Following a life-changing tragedy or car accident involving yourself or a family member, you have more than enough to worry about while you grieve and heal. At the law offices of Reiff & Bily, our experienced and compassionate attorneys provide the information you need to make difficult decisions, find and get the care you need, and handle details like bills and insurance. Having a hard-hitting advocate who also genuinely cares about you and your family’s well-being can make all the difference during a trying time. At Reiff & Bily, we are proud to advocate for the seriously injured, and commit ourselves completely to securing the compensation you deserve.
Types of Injuries and Accidents We Handle in Pennsylvania.
Some law firms focus on churning through as many cases as possible, treating each client like a file or case number instead of an injured human being with hopes, worries, and fears. At Reiff & Bily, our award-winning legal team only takes on the cases we are passionate and confident about. Our selective approach ensures that every client benefits from 24-hour support, and every case receives our full attention. We are equipped with the skill, the dedication, and the network of resources it takes to investigate any type of accident, injury, or misdiagnosis in exhaustive detail.
Our attorneys handle a wide range of cases, ranging from accidents and injuries that occur frequently, such as bone fractures, to uncommon accidents and medical conditions that demand highly specific knowledge, such as plane crashes. No matter how you were injured, or what caused the accident that claimed the life of your loved one, we will ensure that your case is handled with skill, respect, and care.

How Can a Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorney Help with Your Claim or Lawsuit?
Even if another lawyer or law firm in Philadelphia has passed on your case, a Philadelphia car accident lawyer from Reiff & Bily is always ready to assess your case’s likelihood of success. If our attorneys believe that the facts of your case could potentially result in an award of compensation, we will fight aggressively and strategically for you. Likewise, if an insurance claims agent has told you that your case is worth only a few hundred or thousand dollars, don’t just take their word for it. Speak to a lawyer for an independent analysis before agreeing to what the insurance company offers.
At Reiff & Bily, our approach to the law is to take cases we believe in, and then to put in the work and long hours necessary to research and uncover the evidence that supports your case. While a past record of success does not suggest or guarantee future results and all matters are decided on a case-by-case basis, we take pride in always fighting tirelessly for our clients, no matter how challenging or complex the circumstances.
We also strive to keep you informed at each step of the process. We know that you are going through a painful and difficult time, and make every effort to provide the comprehensive support you need. Your calls will always be answered and returned within hours, if not minutes. When you are represented by Reiff & Bily, it’s never a problem to talk with your lawyer, because you’re never “interrupting” us. Your case is our case, and we want to talk with you about your questions and concerns. Our promise to you is that you will never be kept at arm’s length or made to feel that you don’t play an integral role in your case. We embrace our clients’ problems as our own, and strive to work together with our clients in the fight to obtain the award you deserve.
Our unwavering dedication to our clients is not the only feature we pride ourselves on. We also take pride in our track record of outstanding results in a wide array of cases, ranging from car, truck, and motorcycle accidents to cases centered around medical malpractice, premises liability, and wrongful death. Through our combination of relentless tenacity, sophisticated accident investigation techniques, and vast knowledge of state and federal laws, our Philadelphia injury lawyers have repeatedly obtained six-figure verdicts and settlements for clients who were suffering from extremely severe injuries.
What to Do After You’ve Been Injured in an Accident
The period after an accident in Philadelphia is a disorienting, chaotic time. You may not be thinking clearly, and may feel at a total loss as to how you should proceed. We understand how traumatic and confusing a serious accident and its aftermath can be for the victim or their surviving loved ones, which is why we work closely with each client to provide step-by-step support from the very outset of your case.
The steps you take after being injured in an accident can dramatically affect the likelihood of success in recovering compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. Therefore, it is critically important to understand some basic “do’s and don’ts” after an auto accident, slip and fall accident, or other type of accident.
You should prioritize your health and safety after being seriously hurt. Seek medical treatment immediately, even if your injuries seem minor. Swift medical care is vital, not only because you may be suffering from greater injuries than you realize, but also because delays in seeking treatment can weaken your claim and make it harder to obtain compensation.
In addition to seeking prompt medical treatment, you should also try to preserve as much evidence as you are able to, making back-up copies if possible. The smallest fact, detail, or object could play a vital role in proving your case. Prescription slips, medical records, medical devices, accident reports, photographs of the accident scene, photographs of the injury, witness statements, and video recordings are just a few examples of items that should be gathered and preserved if possible.
There are also some actions you should avoid taking to maximize your likelihood of success. For example, you should avoid:
- Accepting a settlement offer from your insurance company before discussing it with an attorney.
- Accepting money from the person who injured you in exchange for “staying quiet” or “letting it go.”
- Making an apology, which could be construed as an admission of fault.
- Making statements about the accident to your insurance company, which is something our attorneys can handle for you.
- Throwing away any documents, medical forms, or other pieces of evidence related to your injury.
