Why Seek an Injury Lawyer After an Accident in Erie?
When something bad happens to you, it’s natural to seek help. You go to the hospital to tend to your injuries – but where do you go for help with the financial burden of an accident? An Erie personal injury attorney is your best option. Attorneys are advocates for your family’s financial future. They use in-depth knowledge of state and local laws to investigate your accident, detect signs of negligence or wrongful acts, gather evidence, and bring claims against responsible parties in pursuit of just and fair compensation. A conversation with a lawyer could lead to recovery for damages such as:
Medical bills. In 2014, Erie County residents racked up $161,801,986 in hospital charges. The median hospital charge was $35,634. After a serious accident, medical bills can be steep. If someone else caused or contributed to your injuries, including the case of medical malpractice, we believe you shouldn’t have to pay these bills. All compensation awards include past and future medical expenses.
Lost wages. If your accident and injuries made you call out from work during hospital stays and in recovery, you could qualify for reimbursement of these lost wages. If an injury gave you a temporary or permanent disability and you lose the capacity to earn because of it, this damage is also compensable.
Pain and suffering. The Pennsylvania courts also allow injured parties to fight for noneconomic damages such as physical pain, emotional suffering, distress, and mental anguish. Traumatic accidents often inflict these damages on survivors.
A lawyer’s main mission is to make sure your family has everything it needs and deserves to move forward after a personal injury accident. Whether you need to negotiate a fair settlement with an insurance company or bring a civil claim against a person, corporation, or government entity, or negotiation help with a work injury claim, an attorney can help. When it comes to getting the law on your side, there is no better associate than a lawyer.

Recent Client Testimonial:
“Dallas was a true lifesaver for my family. When my husband was seriously injured and not able to work again because of it, I had to start over and go back to work just to feed my kids. Because of his injury my husband became very depressed. Dallas was able to get us a settlement and I was able to stay home and help my husband. Through therapy and pain management I now have my husband back. We cannot thank you enough.” – Satisfied Client
