A Pennsylvania Car Accident Lawyer From TopDog Law Personal Injury Lawyers Can Recover Damages on Your Behalf

When a negligent party is the cause of your car accident in Pennsylvania, you may feel frustrated. You now have costly medical bills, and you had to miss work, so you’re not making any income, either. Your finances are suffering, you’re in pain, and you are also dealing with psychological trauma. A car accident lawyer from our firm can help you financially recover from the crash.


Compensation can cover your accident-related losses, and we could file a claim or a lawsuit to help you seek the money you need. Recoverable damages we can pursue on your behalf include the following:

  • Medical bills: No matter what kind of injury you sustain, medical treatment is costly. Compensation can cover your expenses, such as emergency care, ambulance transportation, hospitalization, surgery, diagnostic tests, pharmaceuticals, devices, and future medical expenses you may incur.
  • Lost income: You had to miss work or can’t work anymore because of your injuries. As a result, you can’t pay your bills. Compensation can cover your current and future lost income.
  • Childcare: If you have children, you can seek compensation to cover the cost of childcare services you require to make it to appointments with your doctor and physical therapist.
  • Physical therapy: Some injuries make physical therapy or rehabilitation necessary for recovery. Compensation can cover these costs.
  • Property damage: You need your vehicle to get where you need to go, but it requires repairs or replacement because of the accident. Maybe the accident damaged other items, such as your phone. Compensation can help.
  • Home services: Your injuries may require you to hire help to provide the care you need at home. You may also need someone to help with cleaning and other household services.
  • Non-economic damages: Beyond your financial losses, you could also suffer from debilitating pain, scarring and disfigurement, disability, emotional distress, mental anguish, and psychological trauma that makes it challenging to enjoy daily life, entitling you to compensation.
  • Wrongful death damages: If you lost a loved one, such as a spouse or child, you can also seek wrongful death damages that typically cover medical bills, lost income, and funeral expenses. We offer our sincerest condolences for your loss, and we want to handle your legal case while you take the time to grieve.

The value of your case can vary due to various factors, such as the severity of your injuries and how much income you lost. Damage caps are generally unconstitutional in Pennsylvania unless your claim is against the state or a local government. We have won millions of dollars in damages for the victims we represent. 

Although we can’t guarantee how much compensation you will recover, we promise to do everything in our power to seek the justice you deserve.

You Don’t Pay Your Pennsylvania Car Accident Lawyer Until We Win Your Case

We believe everyone should have access to legal services, regardless of their financial status. If you’re hesitant to seek representation in your case, you should know that we work on a contingency-fee basis. That means you don’t pay us until we win your case and you receive compensation.

We also do not charge any upfront fees. We will pay the cost of investigating and hiring experts to testify on your behalf. Our fee is a percentage of the compensation we recover for you. We will explain how payment works in additional detail when you hire us.

You can also reach out to us for a free consultation. We can discuss your case and even assist you in Spanish at no cost. 

Don’t Let the Statute of Limitations Run Out

It’s completely normal to take some time to consider your options after a car accident. You may want to consult an attorney who can help you understand these options and choose a path forward. 

You only have a limited amount of time to act if you want to file a personal injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania law sets a deadline of two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations to file a wrongful death lawsuit is also two years.

If you don’t meet the deadline, you will lose your right to file a lawsuit. We will work to meet the statute of limitations in your case, so you retain your right to seek compensation through the legal process.

How TopDog Law Personal Injury Lawyers’s Car Accident Lawyer Can Benefit Your Case in Pennsylvania

When you hire a car accident lawyer from our firm, we put our time and resources into building your case for compensation. Your lawyer will guide you through the legal process and serve as your advocate. Our job is to look after and protect your best interests, so you are not exploited during this vulnerable time.

Besides leveling the playing field, having a lawyer can benefit your case in several ways. Your lawyer will: 

Investigate the Accident

We will vigorously investigate the accident to determine liability and discover the facts of your case. We must gather evidence to support your case, such as police reports, witness statements, expert opinions, medical bills, pay stubs, job contracts, vacation and sick day policies, traffic camera footage, and photographs.

Calculate Your Damages 

We will account for your economic and non-economic losses when calculating the amount of compensation we should demand. We can send a demand letter to the insurance provider for the compensation you deserve to adequately cover your losses.


Calculating the value of your case also allows us to evaluate settlement offers from the insurance provider to determine if they are fair or not. 

Negotiate a Settlement

We will negotiate with the liable party’s insurance provider on your behalf to reach a settlement that adequately covers your losses. You can accept or reject a settlement offer, but you cannot pursue additional compensation once you sign a settlement agreement.

We will review your settlement offer so you understand the terms.

File a Lawsuit

We will file a personal injury lawsuit and represent you at trial if that’s what it takes to get you the compensation you need. We prepare every case for court and are not afraid to take this step. Most cases settle out of court because insurance providers don’t want to risk paying out a larger settlement.

When you hire us, we treat you like family because we believe in community. We believe in representing the underdog against profit-driven insurance providers. If the insurance company denies your compensation claim, we are here to fight for you. We empathize with your struggle, and we want to help. 

Causes of Car Accidents in Pennsylvania

Unfortunately, car accidents happen daily across Pennsylvania. Over 30,000 people are the victims of fatal car accidents every year.

There are several causes of car accidents, including:

  • Distractions: There are distractions inside and outside your vehicle. Talking on your cell phone, texting, watching media, looking at objects on the side of the road, pets, and children can all keep your eyes off the road. 
  • Drunk driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs causes accidents and results in many deaths every year. 
  • Defective parts: A defective part can also result in an accident. You can file a lawsuit against the part manufacturer or maintenance service that failed to replace it.
  • Driver error: Inexperience, unfamiliarity with an area, or lack of understanding of traffic laws are common car accident causes.
  • Road hazards: You can file a lawsuit against a government agency for failing to fix a hazard or adequately warn drivers of the danger. 

Your lawyer will identify what caused your accident and determine who is liable for the losses you incurred.

Steps To Take After Your Pennsylvania Car Accident

You should try to remain calm and assess your health and well-being after a car accident in Pennsylvania. If you can move your vehicle to a safe place, take pictures of the accident scene first before doing so. In case of severe injury, you should stay where you are until emergency services arrive.

Other steps you should take after an accident include:

  • Call the police: Call the police so officers can document the scene, talk to you and the other driver or drivers involved, and assist anyone who needs help. If the accident is the result of the other driver violating the law, the police can make an arrest. The police report will also serve as evidence to strengthen your case.
  • Seek medical attention: Your health is a priority. If you can’t call for medical treatment, ask someone else to do it for you. Every second counts when you have a serious injury. Your doctor can also document your injuries and treatments, which will come in handy later when we calculate the value of your case.
  • Gather evidence backing your case: Aside from documenting your injuries and treatments, you can request the police report, take photographs, and collect contact information from witnesses and the other drivers, all of which can help build a strong case for compensation.
  • Inform your insurance provider: You should contact your insurance provider after an accident. Your policy likely covers some of your expenses, so you get some relief sooner.
  • Consult an attorney: Consulting an attorney sooner rather than later can help you learn your options and shield you from speaking to the liable party’s insurance provider, which you should avoid even if you don’t obtain legal representation immediately. It also gives us time to build your case and file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out.

Every driver should have a plan they can follow in case they get into a car accident. It can help you stay safe and prepare a strong legal case.

Types of Car Accident Injuries You Could Sustain After a Crash in Pennsylvania

Car accidents can cause minor to severe injuries that are life-threatening if you don’t receive timely medical treatment. Your injuries could also impact you for many years or the rest of your life.

Types of car accident injuries include:

  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Punctures
  • Concussion
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Hematoma
  • Contusion
  • Bruises
  • Crush injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Internal bleeding

We strongly urge you to seek immediate medical attention after a car accident, even if you don’t think you have any injuries. Some kinds of injuries may not present right away. It’s also advisable to schedule a check-up with your primary care physician as soon as possible. Your doctor may discover an injury and can document it, along with any treatment you receive. 

Once you are out of physical danger, TopDog Law Personal Injury Lawyers will handle all the legal details so you can focus on healing from your injuries.
