    Lawyers represent accident victims in Berks County

    It is a bedrock principle of American law that individuals are responsible for their conduct.  Thus when a person commits an act that injures another, a tort, they may be liable for the injuries.

    Negligence is one of the most common grounds to pursue a personal injury tort.  For there to be a meritorious personal injury lawsuit under negligence grounds, four elements must be present.  First there must be an injury.  An injury can be to person or to property.  Second, there must have been a duty of cared owed to the injured person.  Third, that standard of care was breeched by the party causing the injury.   Finally, it must be shown that the act was the actual and legal cause of the injury sustained.

    Proving a negligence claim is undoubtedly an extremely fact-intensive endeavor that can benefit from the hand of an experienced attorney. At The Reiff Law Firm, we have protected the rights of the injured for more than 34 years.  Our experienced attorneys are sensitive to the injuries you have suffered and challenges you but are aggressive in the pursuit of compensation.

    What types of personal injury cases do you handle?

    We handle a broad array of person injury matters including:

    • Car and motorcycle accidents – Car and motorcycle accidents often lead to back and neck injuries and can even cause traumatic brain injury.
    • Dog bites – In instances where the dog had a history of dangerous behavior or when the injuries are particularly severe, Pennsylvania considers this a strict liability offense.  What this means is a victim can recover medical expenses even without wrong-doing on the part of the dog’s owner.
    • Medical malpractice – While doctors and medical professionals are supposed to help, sometimes they end up exacerbating the injury or condition.  We are experienced handling a variety of malpractice claims including failure to obtain informed consent, failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, medical negligence, nursing home neglect and more.
    • Slip and fall – Slip and falls are the most common premises liability action.  We handle all types of slips, trips and spills including falls from ladders, falls on snow and ice and even slips on water or oil in businesses.

    Regardless of your particular injury, the attorneys of The Reiff Law Firm understand the challenges you face.  We work with you and explain each step of your personal injury claim

    How can I pay my medical bills?

    Suffering a personal injury due to the negligence of another can be particularly frustrating; medical bills mount while you are out of work.  And to add insult to injury:  none of this is even your fault.  Your personal injury lawsuit could recover an award to cover your medical expenses and more.  Typically a personal injury lawsuit seeks:

    o   Compensatory damages – This type of damages is intended to make the victim of an injury whole.  Compensatory damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering.

    o   Punitive damages – These damages serve a different purpose than compensatory damages.  These damages are intended to deter this type of conduct by hitting the bad actor in the pocketbook. In some sense when compensatory damages are awarded, the court is sending a message that this type of behavior is unacceptable.

    If another has caused your injury through their own negligence or carelessness you should not be left to pay for their behavior.  The Reiff Law Firm has supported and protected accident victims for more than 34 years.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
