    Common Personal Injury Claims Our Firm Handles

    The Reiff Law Firm have litigated several types of personal injury claims for clients across the State of Pennsylvania. While some injury claims may be the result of an unexpected freak accident, the majority of personal injury lawsuits arise out of common occurrences. The following is a list of common personal injury claims that our firm handles.

    Car Accidents

    Due to the number of motorists traveling on the roadways in Hershey and the surrounding Pennsylvania counties, it is inevitable that some people will be involved in a car accident. Vehicle collisions may occur in a variety of ways. For example, an accident could be caused by a motorist driving while intoxicated or because a driver was operating their vehicle well above the speed limit.

    The severity of a person’s injuries typically depends on the circumstances of the accident. For example, if you are in a T-bone accident where another driver strikes your driver’s side door, you could suffer from broken ribs due to the force of the impact. Additionally, if you are struck by a commercial vehicle, like an 18-wheeler, the injuries you receive are more likely to be long-term or possibly fatal.

    Our firm can help you through the various stages of a car accident lawsuit like gathering evidence to determine who is at fault.

    Slip and Falls

    A slip and fall is when a person trips and injures themselves due to a dangerous condition on another person’s property. For example, if you visit a restaurant and slip on a freshly mopped floor and injure your back when you fall, the restaurant could be liable to you for injuries. A property owner has a duty to correct hazardous conditions on their property or to at least warn visitors of the hazard. Failing to caution patrons of a wet floor in a restaurant can lead to a personal injury lawsuit.

    Slip and falls are one of the most litigated types of personal injury claim. One reason for this is due to how easy it is for a slip and fall to happen. They can occur while traveling down a set of steps that appear safe or by simply walking down a poorly lit street.

    Ridesharing Accidents

    Ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft are widely popular. However, these companies do not always perform their due diligence when searching for qualified drivers. This can lead to a Uber or Lyft driver causing a serious accident before they can drop you at your destination. In other cases, some ridesharing drivers have even sexually assaulted or physically harmed their passengers.

    This is not a complete list of personal injury claims that our firm litigates. If you were seriously injured in another type of accident that is not listed above, you should contact one of our personal injury attorneys.

    When to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

    In Pennsylvania, there is a statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits. The statute of limitations imposes a two-year deadline on the amount of time that you have to file an injury claim. If you delay and miss your filing deadline, the court may bar your claim entirely and leave you without options to receive compensation. However, depending on the circumstances of your case, you may have the option to delay your filing deadline.

    Despite the possibility of pausing your filing deadline, it is wise to pursue an injury claim promptly to avoid unexpected issues with your case.

    ...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.
