Statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Pennsylvania

A person who has been harmed by a defective product has a limited amount of time to seek awards for damages. The laws vary by state, and in Pennsylvania, the typical statute of limitations for personal injury is two years. It is important to be proactive about the case if one feels that legal action should be taken. 

We understand how important compensation is after car accidents

No matter how safely you drive, there is nothing that can truly protect you from a negligent or dangerous driver. Car accidents can have a profound impact on Pennsylvania victims' lives, leaving many with serious and even permanent injuries that require ongoing medical treatment. When seeking compensation for these injuries, it is important to have the right kind of support along the way.

How to handle a DUI stop

It's Friday night in Erie, so you do what you always do. You change out of your work clothes and head over to the bar to hang out with the guys. You have a few drinks and a few laughs, and when happy hour ends, you call it a night. You hop in your car and head home. While you might feel perfectly capable of driving home after only a few drinks, it is possible that a police officer will not hold the same opinion. Especially if your blood alcohol level is above the legal limit.

New legislation could affect Pennsylvania workers' compensation

No one can predict when a workplace accident will occur. Even when every safety precaution is taken, Pennsylvania workers may still be involved in a work-related accident that causes them serious injury, putting them temporarily out of work. Workers' compensation provides necessary financial support and medical care during the recovery period, but some are worried that legislative changes could compromise these benefits.

Criminal defense rights for Pennsylvania defendants

Some Pennsylvania police officers would have defendants facing criminal charges believe that they have little to no rights. This is incredibly inaccurate, as defendants have several rights that protect them from unjust authorities and illegal action. Most people understand that they have the right to a counsel who can help them craft the best possible criminal defense, but not everyone is aware of their right to a speedy trial.
