We Fight For The Rights Of Injury Victims
If you or a loved one has been injured because of the careless or negligent behavior of another party, you are entitled to fair compensation for your financial losses and suffering. However, obtaining such compensation is not easy. The insurance companies and their attorneys will fiercely resist paying you the compensation you need and deserve. To obtain just compensation, you need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.

All of our personal injury attorneys passionately stand up for the rights of inquired people in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

- Your medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, medical equipment, procedures, treatments and mileage
- Your lost income from missed work due to the accident
- Your diminished earning capacity
- Your pain and suffering as well as any scarring or disfigurement
- Your property damage, including the costs to repair or replace your vehicle in car accident cases
In wrongful death and survival actions, you can seek compensation for:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses your loved one incurred before their death
- Loss of your loved one’s financial support
- Loss of their companionship
- The emotional trauma of losing a loved one
In limited situations for a person, you may be able to seek additional compensation called “punitive damages” that are designed to punish a wrongdoer for their extreme recklessness or intentional wrongdoing.
How long does a personal injury case take?
There’s no definite answer, as the timeline depends on many factors. Straightforward cases with a good chance of a favorable settlement may take as little as a few months. More complex cases, or those that end up going to court, could take several years.
