    Montgomery County Personal Injury Claims

    Personal injury claims in Montgomery arise when a person is injured and another person or entity is legally liable for any damages because they caused the harm. Typically, an insurance provider will pay for any medical expenses or costs. If you were injured in a car accident, our Montgomery County attorney will either negotiate or sue the at-fault driver’s insurance provider.

    Our Montgomery County Personal Injury Attorney Does More than File Lawsuits

    Filing a personal injury claim is just one way to be compensated for any damages you incurred due to an injury. However, many injury claims are settled without having to file a lawsuit. If there is not a compelling dispute regarding the fault in a situation, our attorney will typically be able to settle your case outside of a courtroom. While filing a lawsuit is sometimes necessary, judges and juries can be unpredictable, and the result is not guaranteed. Defense attorneys are also aware of this and will, therefore, agree to a settlement to avoid legal fees and a potentially less cost-effective court judgment. To make an informed decision regarding a settlement offer, you need our experienced personal injury attorney to ensure your case has been appropriately valued.

    Filing a Personal Injury in Montgomery County Could be Necessary

    Unfortunately, every case is not settled without the assistance of the court. If the facts are in dispute or if you are not offered a fair settlement amount, we will recommend pursuing a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. Often, just filing a lawsuit will result in an additional settlement offer. Nonetheless, if we file a personal injury lawsuit, we will be prepared to prosecute it fully. The Reiff Law firm has the attorneys, staff, and resources to fight for your just compensation.

    Motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence that gives rise to personal injury claims and insurance settlements. Individuals injured in a car accident must be aware of their legal rights and the potential value of their claim. Injuries from a collision could be significant, including head and neck injuries, spinal cord damage, and fractures. The initial and ongoing medical expenses from a severe injury could be substantial. Additionally, you could lose income if you are unable to work. If you were hurt in a vehicle accident involving a car, motorcycle, truck, bus, or ATV, contact our Montgomery County attorney.

Sometimes, errors occur that result in adverse medical consequences, including extended hospital stays or additional surgery. Some common medical malpractice claims include birth injuries, inaccurate diagnoses, medication errors, surgical mistakes, and radiation injuries, among others.

    The Statute of Limitations in Montgomery, Pennsylvania

    You do not have an unlimited amount of time to file a personal injury claim in Montgomery County. Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations requires that a personal injury lawsuit be filed within two years of the date the injury occurred. It is crucial to retain the services of our law firm well before the deadline to allow us to investigate and prepare your case before filing.

    ...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.
