Accidents can cause all sorts of painful, costly injuries. Such terrible consequences are always difficult to recover from — but when your accident was caused by another person through no fault of your own, the sense of unfairness and injustice can cast a shadow of overwhelming despair. If you were hurt in Lehigh County because an outside party was negligent, reckless, or careless, that party may be liable for the financial damages you have incurred. In other words, you could be entitled to significant compensation.

Car Accident Lawyers
Millions upon millions of cars are on the roads at any given time, and car accidents cause countless deaths and injuries on an annual basis. PennDOT (the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation) reports that in 2009 alone, there were 1,256 crash fatalities throughout the state — that’s an average of more than three deaths every single day of the year. Non-fatal injuries are even more common: in 2010, nearly 88,000 people were hurt.
In many cases, someone may be liable. Motorists may be held accountable if they caused a collision or accident by driving dangerously. Examples include drunk or drugged driving, excessive speeding, and texting. Major accident sites in Lehigh County occur on I-78, I-476, US 22, US 222, PA 100, and PA 987.
Slip and Fall Lawyers
Along with traffic crashes, slip and fall is another common area of personal injury litigation. Like an auto accident, a slip and fall accident can affect anyone, anywhere, at any time — you don’t have to live or work in any particular environment to be victimized.
Slip and fall happens when a property owner disregards municipal codes, building codes, and safety regulations. If the person who owns and operates a given premises is aware of a hazard or potential hazard on their property, he or she must make the problem area safe for the public. If the owner fails to do this, they can be held liable for negligent property maintenance resulting in death or injury.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Include:
- Broken/Loose Railings and Safety Guards
- Icy/Slippery/Wet Sidewalks and Walkways
- Loose Carpeting
- Loose Debris (Trip Hazard)
- Structural Damage
- Uneven Flooring/Pavement
Our firm has handled slip and fall accidents in many different environments, including but not limited to:
- Apartment Complexes
- Grocery Stores
- Parking Lots
- Shopping Malls
