Philadelphia Personal Injury and Car Accident Attorneys

As the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is ranked at number six for the most densely inhabited city in the U.S. The city proper had a population of over approximately 1.54 million in 2008 and the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan region had about 5.8 million, making it the fifth largest in the country. Often referred to as “Philly” and sometimes “The City of Brotherly Love,” Philadelphia is the fourth-largest urban area by population in the nation.
In being home to several historical sites, Philadelphia has a culture and variety of neighborhoods like no other U.S city. However, similar to other cities, Philadelphia inhabitants and visitors may be afflicted by another person’s negligence in a wide range of personal injury accidents.

Personal injury incidents in Philadelphia may relate to car collisions, medical malpractice, construction accidents, nursing home abuse, work accidents, and several other instances where another person’s negligence imposes physical injury, emotional trauma and financial hardship upon an innocent individual. Those adversely affected by personal injury accidents may seek compensation from negligent parties to help cover medical bills, loss of past and future wages, pain and suffering, physical therapy, and much more.

One of the most common types of personal injury accidents in Philadelphia involves car accidents. Whether a person is injured in a bus crash, pedestrian accident, truck collision, motorcycle accident, or small vehicle accident, these incidents are often caused by distracted, negligent or reckless drivers. Some car accidents are also caused by defective auto parts or unsafe and improperly maintained roadways. A skilled Philadelphia car accident attorney works to obtain full compensation for auto crash injury victims by protecting their rights. Car accident victims need legal counsel and representation from an attorney who will conduct a thorough investigation to determine who was at fault as well as gather appropriate evidence to effectively support the case.
