    Chester County Personal Injury Lawsuits

    If you were a victim of an accident in Chester County, you should consider filing a lawsuit against the person or entity responsible. The Reiff Law Firm understands the burden of dealing with a severe injury, and we can help you litigate the following types of personal injury claims.

    Medical Malpractice

    It is reasonable for a patient to believe that a doctor would provide them with adequate medical care. A doctor is required to provide a patient with medical care that adheres to the standard of care in their field. However, there are various types of mistakes a doctor could make that will lead to a medical malpractice lawsuit. For example, if a surgeon leaves an instrument inside a patient during surgery, this will make the surgeon liable for medical malpractice. There are many other circumstances that could lead to a medical malpractice claim:

    • Negligent administration of anesthesia
    • Prescribing incorrect medication
    • Birth injuries
    • Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis

    Product Liability Claims

    When a consumer purchases a product, it is expected that the product would operate as intended. However, when a product malfunctions and injures a consumer, the manufacturer of the product and other parties in the chain of production could be held liable for the victim’s injuries. For instance, if a person purchases tires that blowout within a few uses, this could lead to a product liability claim.

    Car Accidents

    Car accidents can occur for a wide range of reasons. For example, a victim could be injured due to drunk driving or because a negligent driver was speeding. That is why it is important for a victim of an accident to seek compensation from the driver that caused their injuries.

    The Reiff Law Firm can help you resolve various types of car accident claims from Uber accidents to truck accidents. We are here to help you pursue the compensation you need to manage your injuries and other losses.

    There are various other types of personal injury claims that our firm can litigate on your behalf. To understand more about when to file a personal injury lawsuit in Chester County, you should consult with an experienced Chester County personal injury attorney.

    When to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Chester County, PA

    Victims of an accident should know that they do not have an unlimited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit. The statute of limitations is the reason that a plaintiff should not delay in filing their claim. This law determines the length of time a potential plaintiff has to file a lawsuit with a court of law. The timeframe set by the statute of limitations can change depending on the type of lawsuit and the circumstances of the victim’s case.

    In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the injury. If a plaintiff does not file their case with the court within this timeframe, the court could dismiss the case. Accurately, the defendant in the case will likely move for dismissal due to a violation of the statute of limitations. As a result, the claim would be dismissed with prejudice, meaning the plaintiff cannot refile the case. This is demoralizing for a victim that may have been relying on the possible damages from the lawsuit.

    If you are unsure about the statute of limitations for your potential lawsuit, you should avoid making any assumptions. An experienced attorney can help you deduce how long you have to file your case. If you wait too long to consult an attorney concerning your claim, it is possible that an attorney could be hesitant to take your case.

    It is important to note that there may be a way to delay the statute of limitations for your case. This could give a plaintiff additional weeks or months to pursue their claim. However, you should not rely on the possibility to toll the statute of limitations without speaking with a lawyer first.

    ...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.
