    Common Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Pottstown, PA

    Victims of accidents have a lot to consider. While there are accidents caused by someone else’s carelessness, not all accidents are the result of human error. Some can result from flawed design and manufacturing, and others can be the result of hazardous conditions. Our team of attorneys will work tirelessly to sort out the details of your accident. Much of our personal injury practice involves working with experts, so we can retain respectable and reliable experts who understand the intricacies of your accident.

    Negligence

    Negligence is the theory of law used to establish that someone is responsible for causing accidents that injure others. These are typically preventable and thoughtless errors. Most people don’t understand the intricacies of this theory of law in establishing the element of causation.

    Causation sometimes goes beyond the causes of an accident to what is known as “proximate causation,” which may lead to questions about your medical history and anything else that could help the responsible parties avoid legal repercussions. With an attorney experienced in these tactics, you stand a better chance in obtaining adequate recovery for your losses. Our attorneys will not stand for these underhanded legal mechanisms.

    Driver Errors

    The vast majority of accidents occur when drivers are speeding, distracted, or driving recklessly. In these situations, you can seek recovery against the negligent driver. Also, if that motorist is a commercial driver, you can seek recovery against the driver’s employer as well.

    Defective Products

    Defective construction and assembly can lead to severe accidents. If this is the case, your civil lawsuit will depend heavily on experts in the field, but also on the ability of your attorney to effectively present these complicated issues to a judge and jury. When complicated questions of engineering and materials are at issue, our lawyers have established a keen ability to digest complicate issues and explain them succinctly.

    Premises Liability

    Premises liability refers to the inspection and prevention of hazardous conditions in all sorts of private and public places. This is a type of liability that gives rights to unsuspecting patrons and visitors who suffer slip and fall injuries. Landowners or custodians must take care to prevent hazards from forming in any areas that people enter. When property owners, municipalities, and their agents know about the existence of defects, there is a duty to warn patrons and fix errors to prevent accidents.

    Types of Damages You Can Recover in Pennsylvania

    With the proper legal assistance, you can file claims against all parties responsible for your losses. In Pennsylvania, you can sue everyone in a position to prevent the accident. Also, you may want to calculate your present and future losses appropriately. Our team of attorneys is prepared to work with you, your doctors and other professionals who will help us ascertain the level of impact the injuries are likely to have on all aspects of your life.

    Typically, we seek recovery for all possible losses, including:

    • Medical bills – With increasing health care costs, medical bills can have a severe and profound impact on your finances.
    • Lost wages – If your hospitalization after the accident took longer than you expected, or if your car is damaged, you may find yourself unable to get to work.
    • Pain and suffering – Actual and future emotional losses are recoverable losses. These include the anxiety and depression that people experience after suffering personal losses or injuries.

    Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims in PA

    If you are concerned that time is passing quickly and your health is not improving, you should also take into consideration that time is of the essence when filing a civil lawsuit. There is a time limit of two years in Pennsylvania to file a lawsuit for your injuries.

    Attorneys who are familiar with the rules of the courts in Pottstown are in a better position to provide swift and proactive action. Sometimes having a legal representative who knows his way around local rules can make a difference in the outcome of a 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.

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.
