    Common Personal Injury Lawsuits in Lehigh County, PA

    People are hurt in a variety of ways throughout Lehigh County. It is not uncommon for a person to suffer a severe injury while driving their car, walking and falling on a sidewalk, or undergoing a routine medical procedure. The Reiff Law Firm has represented hundreds of people injured through no fault of their own. Below are just a few of the types of cases that we handle.

    Motor Vehicle Accidents

    Cars remain one of the most efficient and economical ways to travel. People in Lehigh County use their vehicles for work, pleasure, and household errands. However, driving involves a level of risk, and car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury lawsuits. Motor vehicle accidents in Lehigh County involve more than cars – trucks, motorcycles, buses, and ATVs are often involved in accidents.

    Medical Malpractice

    People in Lehigh County trust their doctors, medical professionals, and healthcare providers to make decisions that will positively address their underlying pain and medical conditions. Despite the anticipation of receiving proper care, medical mistakes occur that adversely impact the lives of patients – sometimes resulting in their death. Medical malpractice includes misdiagnoses, surgical errors, and mistakes in prescribing or dispensing medication. Medical errors often lead to unforeseen medical complications, extended hospital stays, additional surgeries, and birth injuries. The Reiff Law Firm has the experienced attorneys, resources, and medical experts available to prosecute your medical malpractice claim.

    Slip and Fall

    While everyone will tell you to call a lawyer after a car accident, the one type of injury that is commonly depicted in the media is a “slip and fall.” Even though these types of injuries are often portrayed for comedic effect, many people in Lehigh County are seriously hurt because of an unexpected fall. When a property owner or manager fails to keep their public walkways in a safe manner, they create an unreasonable risk. Injuries commonly occur because of spills in supermarkets, oil slicks around gas stations, uneven sidewalks, among other unsafe conditions.

    Products Liability

    When you buy a product, such as a vacuum, you anticipate it will properly function. You do not expect any product you purchase to cause an injury. Unfortunately, if there was a defect in the design or manufacture of a product, it could cause an injury. Additionally, products that lack adequate warning labels or operating instructions also could pose an unreasonable risk to the purchaser or user. If you are physically harmed due to the malfunction or misuse of a product, it could be possible to hold the manufacturer or other party in the chain of custody liable for any damages you sustained.

    Premises Liability

    Injuries can occur because of a poorly maintained property. Uneven steps, cracked sidewalks, or missing hand railings could lead to severe injuries. Property owners, landlords, and property managers have a responsibility to keep their properties in a reasonably safe condition. If you are injured because of inadequately maintained or unsafe premises, contact our experienced Lehigh County personal injury attorney.

    Establishing Fault for Your Injuries in Accidents in Lehigh County, PA

    A crucial part of any successful personal injury lawsuit is determining who or what is responsible for your injury. Establishing fault typically depends heavily upon the exact circumstances of your injury – whether it is the negligence of another driver or an inexcusable mistake by your physician. Our attorneys and staff will thoroughly review all the evidence, accident and police reports, medical records, and eyewitness and expert testimony to help determine liability in your case.

    When multiple parties are involved, establishing fault could be challenging. If a mistake occurred during surgery, our attorneys would have to examine the chain of events that lead to your harm. A medical mistake could begin with an inaccurate diagnosis, requiring an unnecessary surgical procedure. Additionally, a medical chart could have been erroneously switched, resulting in a surgical error. Finally, the surgeon or other member of the surgical team could have made an unjustifiable mistake when operating. You need a skilled Lehigh County attorney with the knowledge and resources to piece the puzzle together.

    Liability in Lehigh County Personal Injury Lawsuits

    After fault is established, to hold a defendant liable in a personal injury claim, our Lehigh County attorney must prove the conduct was negligent. To show negligence, the injured party must demonstrate four elements.

    • Duty of care
    • A breach of the duty of care
    • The breach caused the injury
    • The injury resulted in actual damages

    Our attorneys understand the importance of establishing negligence and will use the evidence related to your injury to help prove the behavior that caused your harm was negligent.

    ...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.
