Call a Personal Injury Attorney for Help
Accidents can happen to anyone in many different ways, and the type of incident that occurred will help dictate the major legal questions of your case. For example, if your injury occurred at work, your claim will differ substantially from a claim that arises from a motor vehicle accident or injuries caused by medical malpractice. As skilled personal injury attorneys, our practice areas are varied so that we can assist clients who are injured in many different ways. No matter what type of accident occurred, we can identify and address any issues or questions in your case.
Accident victims can also suffer a wide array of injuries. Some injuries can be complicated and difficult to understand, even though they have a significant effect on your life. Some complex and severe injuries that are often involved in our cases include the following:
Spinal cord injuries - Because the spine is integral for movement, sensory abilities, and organ functioning of most of the body, any injury can cause serious disruption. Spinal cord injuries can cause temporary or permanent paralysis in many victims.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) - Any amount of damage to the delicate tissue of the brain can be serious and even mild concussions require medical attention. Severe TBIs can cause permanent disabilities involving physical, cognitive, or emotional functioning.
Neck and back injuries - While neck or back injuries may not seem so serious at first, these injuries can cause chronic pain that can plague you for years. Victims often require ongoing treatment and may aggravate the injury easily.
No matter how serious your injuries may be, the costs of medical treatment can be overwhelming. Even visiting the emergency room can result in hefty bills and the party responsible for your accident should be held fully liable for those costs.
Personal injury victims often incur medical costs for the following and more:
• Emergency transportation
• Emergency trauma care
• Doctor’s visits
• Specialist visits
• Rehabilitative therapy
• Medical equipment and medications
For individuals who suffered injuries with long-lasting or permanent effects, they may require ongoing medical treatment for years after their personal injury case or perhaps for the rest of their lives. You deserve to be compensated for all of your losses - both past and future. At The Levin Firm, your personal injury attorney will understand how to estimate all of the losses you may incur in the future to ensure that you receive the full amount you deserve. If you have been injured in any type of accident, please call a Philadelphia personal injury attorney at our firm today to discuss a possible case at no cost.
It can be difficult to know exactly how to proceed in the aftermath of a car crash. You may be questioning whether to seek medical treatment due to concerns about cost. If the accident was the fault of another driver, you may not be fully aware of your rights under your particular insurance policy and you may not know how to gather the information needed to prove their fault. Rest assured that when you call a car accident lawyer at The Levin Firm in Philadelphia, we will provide the advice and guidance you need to recover for the losses you incurred due to the crash.
The insurance process following a car accident can be complicated and will vary depending on the type of policy you have. In some cases, you may need to file a claim with your own insurance, even if the other party was at fault. Other injured individuals will have the right to file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance. Some car accident victims may have injuries and losses that are far too extensive to be covered by any insurance and legal action will be necessary.
In any case, however, proving the amount you are owed to an insurance company can be challenging. Often, the severity of your injuries may be questioned or the company may claim you were partially at fault to limit its liability. Having an experienced car accident lawyer handling your claim can help to ensure you receive the full settlement you need to cover your medical bills, lost income, and other losses.
Filing a Legal Claim
If your case cannot be resolved through insurance, you will need to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party in civil court. The legal process is complex and you always want to be represented by a skilled car accident lawyer who can protect your rights throughout the process.
In order to hold another driver liable for your injuries, you must prove that they were negligent in some manner. There are many negligent acts that commonly cause car accidents, including:

• Violating traffic laws
• Running red lights
• Aggressive driving
• Truck driver errors
At The Levin Firm, we will investigate the cause of your crash and will gather the evidence needed to prove the negligence of the driver. Each negligent act will involve different types of evidence, so you need a law firm with the resources needed to sufficiently prove your claim.
• Past and future medical costs
• Past and future lost income
• Pain and suffering
• Emotional distress
• Permanent disability
